Men Want to Feel Needed

Angela R. Robinson 

Because of the way our society is structured today, many women are embarrassed to admit, even to themselves, that they want to feel cherished and that they need a man. It’s almost a sacrilege to admit it, even though they feel empty without a partner. 

You will find that there are many women, and you may be one of them, who have a great career and date all the time, but cannot maintain a relationship. And they have no idea why. It is exactly because of the fact that they have convinced themselves that they don’t need a man and that is exactly how them come across.

Unfortunately, if a man doesn’t feel that a woman needs him, he will think there is nothing he can do for her that she can't do for herself. He won’t be able to play the knight in shining armor and there is nothing that will get a man to run away faster then the feeling that he isn’t needed. 

While independence is a great thing in some areas of your life, it is usually the biggest killer of intimacy. After all, would you want to be with someone who says they don’t need you? No one is saying you need to use him as an emotional crutch or relinquish all control to him, but you do need to understand that the idea of equality is highly overrated in relationships.

In fact, if you were both on equal footing, you would be just like one of his friends. And very few women want to be treated like one of the guys. After all, guys never open up to each other and are constantly competing on some level. They certainly don’t hug and kiss each other romantically. Is that what you want? To be one of the boys?
