September 24, Men feel love as much as women do.
Women everywhere seem to say the same thing about their male partners and it goes like this: He never tells me how he is feeling! And when she finally came to a stop, I began to explain why so many men are uncomfortable exploring their feelings and why this is a good thing!
I think I had her full attention. Going quiet - emotional upset versus problem solving Male friends have told me they hate it when a woman asks them during a quiet moment: If a man is quiet, a women may assume his silence indicates that he is upset. Men, on the other hand, stop communicating when they have a problem to solve.
Understanding better how your partner processes emotions can clear up misunderstandings and bring greater tolerance into your relationship. The fact is that men and women are different in more than just the obvious physical ways. Emotional arousal is bad for male health This all reminds me of the old song: And a prime difference is that men have to protect themselves from emotional arousal for the sake of their health.
The s therapeutic ideal was about 'getting in touch with your feelings. Women used to be dismissively known as the 'weaker sex' - but in some ways men are actually more vulnerable.
Women not only live longer but at every stage of life the male is more likely to die than the female. Even in infancy, premature boys are more likely to die than premature girls.
Rosemary was surprised and relieved to learn that there are sound reasons why her male partner may 'button up'. Men act, women talk Firstly, men's brains are wired for action during high emotion, whereas women's brains are wired for talking things over.
If a man instinctively knows his anger is likely to lead to action and possibly regrettable violence he may try to stop it going that far by putting a lid it on it. Or 'clamming up' as his partner may describe it.
Secondly, from an evolutionary perspective men would have had to shut off their emotions while out hunting, so over time it has become natural for them to do so. But there is a third and even better reason why men typically may shut themselves off more from emotional arousal.
I'm out of here! This is partly due to how emotions affect men. They are a cue to physical action - the consequences of which could be terrible. If a man stays put and becomes very emotional, his blood pressure skyrockets and he is at risk of having a heart attack.
It also takes much longer for a man's blood pressure and immune system to return to normal after high emotion than it does for a woman. Therefore a man will instinctively try without even knowing that this is what he is doing to protect himself and escape the situation.
Women need to be more tuned into their emotions than men because they are, more often, the ones who rear children of course, this is a generalisation and there are always exceptions.
One research study showed that young boys were much quicker to try to switch off a recording of a baby crying than young girls were. The researchers at first reasoned that this was because of male insensitivity.
But it turned out that the boys had much higher levels of stress hormone in their bloodstreams than the girls did on hearing the emotionally arousing trigger.
Men are actually more sensitive to emotion and so more likely to avoid it. This gender difference persists through life and old men are much more likely to die soon after the loss of a partner than an elderly wife when she loses her husband.
Let's have some understanding The best way to relate to one another is for men to appreciate that a woman needs to off load sometimes and for a woman to know that a man may prefer to talk about practicalities rather than how he is feeling.
So a man, when he realises that his partner is upset or worried about something, can ask her if she would like to talk about it. But then he needs to resist the temptation to offer advice or tell her what to do!
Just listen and affirm her feelings. Conversely, a woman who notices something is up can think twice before asking that frightening question - 'How do you feel?Apr 10, · Some universities offer counseling services for men of color and gay men, and some sponsor clubs through which male members explore the crisis of sexual violence against women.
Men’s emotional response is a lot more neurological, whilst women source much of their emotional response from hormones. Women get over emotional trouble faster this way because they remember the feeling but the initial hormones subside, while men are programmed to feel it.
It also shows that while men may feel as strongly about a particular experience, it’s internalized in their thoughts rather than . Women are only able to have casual sexual relations when they have the upper hand in the relationship; they feel control over the amount of investment they desire and the amount of investment the man .
Men feel love as much as women do. It’s so common for women to feel that most guys are just after intimacy, but it’s not true at all. Men are looking for love as much as women are, and they feel all the emotional highs and lows that love brings forth.
How does a man get attracted to a woman? Straight and gay are different in terms of who they are attracted to.
But at the same time what I believe is, straight . Yet, the reality is that traditional masculine ideals affect how gay men feel about themselves (Szymanski & Carr, ) and their same-sex relationships (Wester, Pionke, & Vogel, ). While many gay men struggle with these issues, scientific research on the effect of masculine ideals on gay men is lacking.
