What men fear most about being in a relationship
Men have a lot of fear when they are in a relationship. They worry about many things. Here are some of the biggest fears men have about getting involved and what they need to do to conquer those fears:
Men Fear Being Judged By Their Partners
Men fear being judged by their friends, family, escorts, and society as a whole. This is because men have been trained from birth to believe that they must always be strong, powerful and in control of their emotions at all times, or they will be seen as weak. It could lead to embarrassment as others may think less of them as a man if they show signs of vulnerability.
Men are taught this through childhood socialisation into traditional gender roles where boys are told repeatedly that being strong means not showing emotion because boys don’t cry. As adults, these beliefs continue into adulthood where men are expected by society at large not only not to cry but also suppress all forms of emotion.
Men Fear Being Seen As Weak
There’s a lot to be afraid of in the world, but most men will tell you that they fear being seen as weak by other men. It can be a pretty insecure place to live, especially if you’re constantly questioning your own strength and ability to protect yourself and others around you. This fear stems from many sources, maybe because of how it relates back to our caveman roots.
Men have been taught from birth that they are the provider, and that when it comes to relationships, women are the prize. When a woman takes care of a man’s needs or asks him to do something for her, he feels like he’s won the lottery.
Men don’t want to feel like they’re being treated like a servant. When they say “yes” to something, they want it to be because it’s what they want to do. They don’t want their partner making them feel bad about it later on down the line by reminding them how much time or energy was spent on doing what she asked him to do for her.
Men Are Afraid Of Being Taken For Granted
That’s because it’s a sure sign that the woman doesn’t respect him. Men want to be admired, desired and lusted after, but they also want their partners to be faithful and loyal. Why would he stay if she isn’t interested in doing those things?
Men have been conditioned by society to believe that men should take care of women and make them happy. If men see their partner as a burden or an ungrateful person in need of being taken care of, then they will get frustrated and lose interest fast. When that happens, it usually means that the relationship is going downhill.
Unsurprisingly, men and women have different expectations regarding relationships and romance. Men, in general, have a higher sex drive than women, making them more likely to feel neglected when their partner isn’t putting out as much as they’d like.
