Hopefully Chapter 6 of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus won’t annoy me as much as Chapter 5.
There comes a time in every relationship when the man pulls away. For example, Let’s Move In Together…Or Not.
Meanwhile, women tend to push for intimacy, and when that doesn’t work, women pull away.
Back and forth. Back and forth. So much time would be saved if men just didn’t pull away in the first place. But, Men, It’s not your fault…that you’re an a-hole. (Me applying what I learned in Chapter 5.)
Women, I’m sure you’re thinking, “That sounds awful! How can I avoid the rubberband pulling away?”
Just to be safe, never open up to a man or tell him anything because it may trigger his departure.
Man: Hi, Honey. How was your day?
Woman: Well, this morning….
Man: WHAT?!?! I can’t handle this. I’m going to hibernate in my cave to process this information. Here, take my credit card and go shopping.
Men instinctively pull away. There’s nothing you can do to prevent it.
Women: Share your thoughts with your significant other. But start by saying, “I’d like to share my thoughts with you. You don’t need to say anything.” This motivates your man to talk. It’s reverse psychology! Like taking candy from a baby….
Men: In case you haven’t caught on from the first 5 chapters, the author once again states, “Listen to women when they speak.” Are you listening?
