Only one day left! Although most won't admit it, men love to be in love. In fact, many men need to be in a relationship more than women do. This is because a good relationship is settling for a man, a place where he can share feelings that he might not be able to talk about with anyone else. In our society, women are permitted to have close, bonded relationships with their girlfriends.
They talk to each other openly, and turn to one another for support easily, but men don't. Believe it or not, for many guys their love relationship is the one place where they can allow themselves to be truly intimate. As a therapist in New York City, I've counseled many men in relationships who agree. Check them out here. You might be surprised by what these guys say! Sure, it can be fun for a while. But, believe me, every one of the guys in the group is hoping to meet someone each night.
And I don't just mean someone for sex. I mean someone for everything, the 'real thing. Who likes you that way. Who isn't going to start finding fault, but instead, start finding all the things about you that are terrific. When a guy is in a relationship where he is allowed to be himself, he feels more confident. He feels lovable and worthy. Just by being there, the woman he is dating or married to reminds him that she chose him out of all the others.
This kind of feeling is hard to get in any other way. It helps all aspects of his life. Andy said he loves the challenge of relationships. He knows he has to work at it in order to make a love affair last. After all, I don't want her running off with some other guy.
When things work out, I feel like a winner. I feel proud showing her off to my family and friends too. It's like I'm saying, look what I have. Look who I am. They keep them on the sharp edge of life, and force them to be the best they can. For Tim, it's slightly different. Tim loves the rush of looking forward to spending a romantic weekend with the woman of his dreams. She's beautiful. She's fabulous. I think about her all week long and can't wait for us to be together on the weekend or sometimes weeknights.
It makes the whole day exciting. When things get boring or rough, I think of her and feel great. It reminds me that there's a prize for me at the end of the road. Seeing his girlfriend's smile or hearing her voice becomes the reward for all of his hard work. His relationship reminds him that there's more to life than the rough times, and he can enjoy himself every day. Edgar said that what he loves about being in a relationship is knowing that he can make someone else happy.
Knowing that he's capable of doing this makes him feel good inside. If I know she needs me and that I can make her happy, take some of her problems away, I feel terrific, like it's all worthwhile. Not being able to make someone happy made them feel inadequate. Men need to feel as though they're doing a good job. And they need to hear the acknowledgement of that from the woman they're with. When a man feels like he can please his girlfriend or wife, it makes him feel wonderful about himself.
Lanny had something else to say. I need it. It's important to me. When I have good sex in my relationship, I feel happy all week long. When I don't, it makes me edgy. I love to know that a woman thinks I'm sexy. And sex can mean different things to people in relationships. But for many men, it simply helps them feel loved, approved, admired and acknowledged. It becomes like food that's impossible to live without.
What Mark loves about being in a relationship is having someone to come home to. Whether that's because we're living together, or knowing that she's someone who I can call, it's comforting. That we check in with each other, go over the day, laugh at jokes and work things out. I need to have someone who cares about how things are going for me.
This makes a huge difference in how I do at work. Someone who is there for them, to help them solve problems, big or small. This kind of care provides balance and stability. But even more importantly, it reminds men in relationships that they are not alone in a competitive workplace where it sometimes seems as though people only care about themselves. Loving couples know that a relationship is a great gift for both partners. The men who don't seem to be able to commit because they run from one relationship to another, or avoid them altogether, might simply not be able to find the right person.
A man truly needs to find someone who makes him feel safe and cared for, a woman who sees the best in him and lets him know it. When she shows that she is happy with him, he will appreciate the relationship more. After all, if she loves being in love with him, what could be more rewarding? IE 11 is not supported.
