Relationship Myth #3: Showing a Man Your Feelings Will Scare Him Away
We women have come to believe that men get scared away by feelings, and so we tend to stuff our emotions down for fear of creating any tension with a man.
But the truth is that men are not averse to feelings – it’s drama that turns them off.
When you can embrace your feelings and communicate them to a man in plain language and in a way that does not blame or criticize him, a man will breathe a sign of relief. At last he has met a woman who can relate to him without letting her emotions control her!
How does this work in practice? Say he’s late. Instead of telling him, “I can’t believe you’re late again; it’s so inconsiderate!” You could try: “I feel really frustrated when I’m waiting for someone. I don’t like waiting, and I don’t want to hide that from you. What do you think we can do to work this out?”
Not only are you giving him the chance to resolve the issue with you, but you are also keeping your feelings from festering inside and leading to anger. You’re keeping the communication lines open, and this leads to a closer, more connected relationship.
