It's true that men hide their feelings better than women. That's why sometimes they seem like they're not emotional at all. However, you need to know that men are often much more vulnerable than women. Maybe that's the reason why they don't want to show their pain; they're afraid that women will take advantage of them.
Here are 10 things men hide from you but they secretly want you to know:
1) They are not afraid of commitment.
According to a society's myth, women want to settle down, but men are afraid of commitment. That's a big lie. When a man decides that a woman is the right one for him, then he never wants to let her go. They take relationships and even marriage really seriously. That's why when they break up, they're usually much more devastated than women. However, men, unlike women, need more time to decide whether they want to commit. They want to be sure they're ready and that they've found the one. But once they've found her, they don't want to leave her. Isn't that romantic?
2) They don't like saying "I love you" as much as you do.
Men prefer to show their feelings by doing things that will make their woman happy. It's difficult for them to express themselves using words such as "I love you" or, worse, "I need you". However, you can be sure that your man loves you if he makes little sacrifices to make you glad. Don't underestimate the meaning of his actions. That's his "I love you".
3) They actually hear what you say.
There are two stereotypes: according to the first, women talk too much and, according to the second, men rarely listen to what a woman says. They're both lies. Well, ok, some women like to express themselves using more words than usual, but, still, that doesn't mean that your man won't hear you. A man who loves you, pays attention to everything you say, even if he doesn't know how to fully express himself using words.
4) They like couple activities.
Doing things with your partner makes you both happy. It also improves and strengthen your relationship. Most men love having mutual hobbies with their girlfriend, such as sports or going to the movies or anything else. It also improves your sex.
5) They need time for themselves.
Not all women can understand that. So men find it difficult to say it, but they do want to spend some time alone once in a while. They want to see their friends, play games, watch a football match e.t.c. on their own. That means without you. And it's ok. Actually, spending time apart is good for both genders, because it shows a healthy relationship between two independent persons.
6) Their memory is not that good.
Men forget faster than women. Women tend to remember negative experiences for longer, so they end up feeling anxious, sad or angry for months! Men tend to move on more easily. They don't like remembering negative experiences. So if you want to discuss a fight you had had with your partner a week ago, be prepared, because he may have already forgotten about it!
7) They are naive.
Sometimes, women give hints to their men. However, most of the times men miss these clues and signs. They just don't get them. So, if you want your partner to know something, don't try to show it, just say it! Men hate riddles, since they're not good at them.
8) They think about sex very often.
Well, that's not a secret. According to researches, most men under 60 years old think about sex at least once a day, while only 25% of women do so. In addition, men have sexual fantasies at least twice as much as women. Not to mention that their fantasies have much more variety. However, when in a relationship, they don't just want to have sex. They think that sex is important for both partners, so they try to make sure that their woman enjoys it as much as they do.
9) They want you to show your love as well.
If a man feels unloved by his partner, it's possible that he will leave her for someone else or for something else, such as their friends or job. Isn't it the same with women as well? So, if they think that their woman doesn't really care about them, they'll start caring more for their own life. That's why both genders should actually talk about their relationship.
10) They will try for their relationship.
As previously mentioned, men actually like serious relationships. That's why they wouldn't leave their woman because of something minor. They would try to keep their relationship as much as women would, or even more.
