The Best Ways to Show Women Your Softer Side
Men are often taught to bottle up their feelings and act macho. If you dare to express that something upsets you or maybe offends you, you’re not a “real man” or you’re “being too sensitive.”
But there are some essential reasons that men should get comfortable with showing their softer side. Firstly, it’s good for your health. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 40, and that’s partly because men struggle to talk about their feelings. And a slightly less serious reason to show your softer side is that it’s what a lot of women want to see.
They’ll appreciate it if you can let your guard down, even if it’s just around them (in fact, sometimes especially if it’s just around them).
Show Your Emotions
It can be hard to be emotionally vulnerable around anyone, let alone someone you like romantically. But if you can show your emotions in a healthy way, many women are likely to appreciate that. They want to see that you have feelings and that you can open up when you need to.
They also want to see that you can show empathy and be emotionally mature. You can show your emotions through talking or through actions. It’s not always easy to say how you’re feeling, but you can find ways to show it if that makes things easier.
Take Pleasure in Small and Silly Things
As you get older, you can push some things aside as being childish. This often means that you don’t allow yourself to enjoy the small things in life that maybe don’t have a huge impact on your life in general.
Watching the sunset for a few minutes isn’t going to change your life, but it’s still an enjoyable experience. Eating a candy bar or lounging around the house in a mens onesie is fun, even if it’s not going to get you anywhere in life. Sometimes doing silly things can make you afraid of not being taken seriously.
However, everyone should be allowed opportunities to be a bit childish.
Being kind and affectionate to others is easier for some than others. Even if you struggle to be openly affectionate with people, like your friends and family, you might find that you can do it with animals.
If you have a dog or other pet, many women will love seeing you express your affection for them and how much you care for them. Of course, being able to show affection for people is important too, whether it’s your parents or a niece or nephew.
Offer Your Help
It’s not difficult to kind and helpful sometimes. If you have five minutes to do someone a favor, why not do it? Of course, you need to be careful not to let people take advantage of you, but it’s not that hard to get the balance right. Showing that you can be thoughtful and helpful will endear you to just about any woman, whether it’s as a friend or a romantic interest.
Learning to show your softer side can be better for your health and improve your relationships. Give it a go.
