(In-person) What are you doing? = “As a doer, I need help translating the actions I see into your intended meaning.”
What are you wearing? = (this is a rare question. I wouldn’t worry about this unless you’re actually dating a fashionable man (which is like 1 percent of 1 percent of all men…ever)
What do you want to do? = “I’ve already thought of a few ideas, actually may even have a full evening planned, but I’m nervous you may not approve and so I’m checking in with you for a pre-approval. Sorry for my lack of confidence.”
Can we stay in tonight? = “I feel quiet and want to spend time with just you. Please let this one night of laziness be okay.”
I don’t like your friend(s)/family = (either #1 or #2 and sometimes both)
“I feel your friends don’t treat you as good as you deserve and it makes me defensive/protective of you.”
“I feel your friends may not like me and are talking you out of seeing (being with) me.”
There it is. The simple things men say and yes drives women bat-shit crazy! Complex creatures saying simple things, not sharing their feelings and hiding behind heady questions of nothingness causing the women to become interpreters, mind readers and investigators with ninja-like cross-examination of verbal judo. It’s exhausting!
Men aren’t the badasses that society (movies, expectations, business, etc) portray them to be. They’re creatures of primal programming desiring all the same needs as women and simply go about it differently, both in language and thought patterns. We bleed, often profusely, exhausted with the concealment for thinking of us as weak if we just…feel.
Get a man to feel, and you’ll experience the strength of powerful masculinity you never thought possible. What an adventure we are.
Gasp! I know, I know…we don’t mean to come off as Neanderthal knuckle-draggers, but hey, we love and adore you so be patient and if it gets ugly, just contact me, I’ll walk you through it.
We men … we’re not so bad.
