Men Answer Your Questions About Love

Is your man in love? Will he fall for you? Men answer: How to tell.


How do I know when it’s time to tell him my feelings?

I’ve been seeing a man for only two months. Perfect guy. He’s funny, has a great job, I love hanging out with him. We even took this great weekend vacation together and everything seemed to click. I just have this feeling that this is going to work, and I’m pretty sure he feels the same way. I don’t want to blow it, and while I obviously don’t want to pretend to be somebody that I’m not, I also don’t want to do anything that could jeopardize the relationship. Any hints for how to take things from here?

Men Answer Your Questions About Love

Two months may seem like a blip on the relationship radar, but for some guys, that qualifies as a full-fledged era. At this point, men certainly want some honesty. “If she is more open with me, I’ll be more open with her, especially at the beginning when you’re both feeling each other out, emotionally,” says Warren, 33. But that comes with a caution. Feel free to be honest about your feelings, but don’t make assumptions about his. Don’t use the word us. At this stage, you’ll solidify your primo status if you talk about what you like about him, what you get out of a relationship with him, what turns you on about him. Us scares him; him excites him. (Yes, we’re our own favorite subject, but that’s just human nature.) It’s a way of saying you love the relationship while giving him the ego-boosting rush he craves — all without making him think you’re brushing up on the four Cs of diamond shopping. At this still-early stage, that’s a secret to tip-toeing between giving him permission to love and giving him a reason to leave.

    Sorry but I think the whole “92% of men chose love” is BS.

      For a relationship to work, there needs to be give and take. Men can’t do all the work. LOL

    They say that men are simple-minded and women are the complicated ones, but I find it hard to understand most guys.

    It’s society’s fault that women aren’t as assertive as most men. We got used to just waiting for men to ask us out. I feel sorry for the guys who aren’t as brave as the others.

      I feel this on a spiritual level. I’m only 25 but my relatives are more concerned with my non-existent relationship than I am.

    I don’t like it when people ask me if they can be friends with me because my tendency is to always say no. I feel the same about relationships. I’d rather just let it happen. But I also get that some things need to be asked first.

    Women give mix signals. They’re very hard to read. You’ll just get a migraine trying to understand them.

      I know it’s easier said than done, but maybe try talking to her about it? Maybe she’s just waiting for you to ask but you’ll never know if you won’t ask. Asking is the best way to get an answer. I hope this helps. 🙂

    I’m shocked to know that 92% of men chose falling in love.

    I believe men need more understanding when it comes to matters of the heart. They do not speak what they feel which usually cause miscommunication.

      They love to keep everything simple. They tend to feel that crying is for girls. That is why the suicide rate is higher among men. That is why I always try to avoid confrontational talks with my boyfriend.

    Thanks for writing, Sarah! Men and women need to meet halfway if they want to succeed in love!

    Men are completely different from us, women. And it’s essential that if you love your man, you need to understand him and make sure he knows you do.
