A Man’s Tenderness

A Man’s Tenderness

In society today, a man is expected to be strong, independent, and goal-oriented.

He is also supposed to be caring and supportive of his loved ones. But, at the same time, he is often condemned if he’s not in control of those softer emotions.

So, what’s a man to do?

Men and women may think uniquely, approach problems from opposite ends, and express themselves in different ways, but our feelings inside are much the same. Men need to be able to give and receive tenderness as freely as women. Nobody should have to be strong and in charge all the time.

So, how does this translate to love and romance?

We’re always so concerned about how a man should show love or romance a woman, that we often overlook how a woman should show love or romance a man.

For Romance:

  1. fix his favorite meal
  2. rent a video HE likes
  3. give him flowers (he won’t expect that)

To Show Love:

  1. when you know he’s upset, and he doesn’t want to talk about it, come up behind him and without saying anything, give him a hug and just hold him
  2. when he’s feeling self-doubt (we all do!), kiss his brow and tell him he’s the most important thing in your life, and you’ll be by his side forever
  3. when he has to cancel plans to be with you or the family because of his job or another obligation, tell him you’re sorry, you understand and you’ll miss him

When a man “truly” loves, that love runs deep. Don’t abuse his feelings. When you hurt a man, that hurt runs deep, too. Remember that.

Cherish the tender side of your man. You’ll have a loving relationship that will last a lifetime.
