- Why men find it hard to say “I love you”?
Why is it so hard for some men to say “I love you”? The need to listen is explained by the fact that women are auditory, while men are more visual. A man is content to see his loved one by his side. But a woman needs to continually hear the confirmation of that love.
Why do some people find it hard to say I love you? The fear of saying I love you or I love you is more widespread than we would like to admit. However, it is easier to feel that you love someone else than to feel that you love yourself.
We do a lot to love another person and very little to love ourselves. And this is where the problem begins. But not all men find it hard to say “I love you”. Now let’s see why it is difficult to say “I love you”.
- Men are unemotional because of cultural factors
In many cultures men assume the macho role leaving aside emotions and sensitivity. It is women who assume the emotional roles of partner, friend, mother, daughter and companion.
Men are taught to be unemotional and with less physical contact. Men are taught to repress their emotions, “men do not cry”. Men are associated with the power of strength and virility.
Men are taught to express their love by protecting and caring, rather than verbally.
- Men are afraid of commitment
It is difficult for a man to commit when he is just getting to know what his life as a couple will be like. But there are also men who don’t like commitment because they don’t like living as a couple. Not everyone accepts the traditional life as a couple.
There are also men who cannot move beyond the falling in love phase. That is why it is difficult for men to say I love you, they cannot advance to the love stage. For these men it is as if adolescence lasted until the age of 35.
- Some men feel less like men
Men with a high degree of macho ego do not like to feel less than their partners. For these men saying “I love you” is a sign of weakness. With an intelligent woman they feel a threat to their status quo, to lose their dominant image.
Men find it difficult to say “I love you” because of an absurd fear of losing their role as provider and protector of the woman. And if he deals with a more intelligent or free woman, it could pose a threat to his ego.
- A man finds it hard to say he loves you for fear of rejection.
Many insecure men believe they protect themselves by hiding their sensitivity and tenderness. For them, expressing their feelings of love is vulnerability, so they express their fears. Their expectation of rejection is strong and in order not to feel that pain they do not take risks.
They unintentionally strengthen their fears and weaken their capacity for love. In this way they transmit insecurity in their partners and the relationship does not progress.
- Men find it difficult to say I love you if they do not feel it.
It is not easy to really love, but for a woman tenderness is very important. Maybe that is why there are men who say I love you without feeling it, just to please the woman. Many couples live without love, each one indifferent to his own love.
Men have several partners, throughout their lives, not because they love too much, but because they do not feel that passion that holds them back. The women they really loved may be a lucky two.
If your man has a hard time saying he loves you, here are some reasons. Don’t wait for him to change, change yourself, start building love in your heart. It’s your life, love your life, build the lifestyle you want to live, don’t expect someone else to do it.
