This kind of listening makes a man feel most comfortable to open up and respond with a deeper level of thought, care and honesty.
There’s something absolutely critical you need to get about men if you want to enjoy a lasting relationship that feels easy and like a fit for you and for the man you’re with.
It’s this: men do not respond to criticism in relationships.
When you try to talk a man into doing what you want, he will naturally become “the resister”. Your convincing is a turn off for him, because he’ll feel like he’s being forced rather than making his own decision to invest in the relationship.
If you really want to get a man to start putting in more effort, memorize these three key elements.
In order for a man to respect your feelings and needs, he needs to feel safe to share his true feelings with you.
And the way to do that is to show him you’re not just venting your feelings but rather truly interested in what he has to say.
Men – just like women – need to feel like it’s okay to have their feelings, and that they will be heard and respected.
And when they realize their partner isn’t really listening or interested in who they truly are or how they truly feel, they will start to shut off bit by bit.
So, approach difficult conversations with a spirit of negotiation.
Understand that he has his own reasons for feeling the way he does, and listen with the intent of reaching an agreement that pleases both of you.
