7. To add value
Men by nature are problem solvers.
Women just like to share, to talk things through, and to feel heard. If you can shift your understanding to know that by simply being present and actively listening to your partner, you are adding value, then you will be miles ahead of most.
Value does not always come in the form of action or solution. After you have listened and heard you can say, “Babe, that is really frustrating. I thought of something that might help you. Are you interested or do you just need an ear right now?” Now that is adding golden value!
You have a lot of power to create freedom and happiness in your relationship. The key is to understand that having needs does not make you needy, they make you human. The most effective way to relationship success is for you to start sharing them with your partner.
Action – share this article and discuss it with your partner. Ask him/her what their needs are. Do these accurately capture yours? Are there others?
Just imagine how good things will get when your needs are being met.
Just like women, men also love feeling the love from their partners, but their conditioning sometimes prevents them from asking for it. If you are a man reading this, if you are able to convey your needs to your partner openly, you will see how amazing it feels to be loved.
