He needs you to himself more than you are giving, here's how you'll know?
Many grew up with the belief that they have to be manly and masculine.
They're taught that they have to be the providers of everything, from food to emotions. They are told to suck up their emotions and not whine… that is something women do.
So, sometimes in relationships, you find men who resort to holding in their emotions. Even when he feels a kind of distance crawling between you and him, he'll refuse to say anything because he does not want to be perceived as the guy that whines and complains all the time.
When he refuses to talk about that lack of intimacy, though, it still shows in his mannerisms and body language that he feels neglected and that he desires more from you than you are giving him at that moment.
Below are five signs you'll notice when a man wants more of your attention but can't bring himself to say it…
1. He jokes about your dead sex life
If he’s always making jokes about how terrible your sex life has been, if he somehow sees it as a big fat joke that you no longer have sex as much or as well as you both used to do, that might be a sign that he wants things to back to the way they were before.
He’s not just being forthright about it.
2. He gives up a lot during arguments
If your boyfriend/husband does this a lot, it could mean that he’s tired of talking and explaining himself because you hardly ever reason with him.
If he starts to regularly cut himself short while making a point to you, it’s probably his way of saving his energy because you hardly listen to him anyway.
3. He makes everything too romantic
He is making heart-shaped pancakes in the morning and playing romantic music in the bathroom when you’re both just brushing your teeth.
4. He’s been saying you two should get away
Vacations afford lovers time alone. No interference of work or friends. If your partner starts pushing for this a lot, it could be because he craves your undivided attention. He needs to tear you off work for a moment. He needs you to look at him and pay him some attention.
Now pack up and go with him on that vacation.
5. He says no to guests
He does not want people to come around and spend weekends or holidays, because he sees it as an opportunity for the both of you to repair your distressed bond. He needs you to himself for a while, can’t you see that?
