Have you and your friends ever looked at something, like a situation, an inanimate object, or a person and have come to totally different conclusions about it? I love how the human mind works – how fast it takes in data through the eyes, processes and compares it to personal desires and experiences in the mind, and formulates an instant impression.
I know men do this well, sometimes too well, especially when it comes to women (so I’m reminded by some of my female friends).
” Knowing that this is a loaded question, I usually find some politically correct answer that seems to pacify them for the moment and move on. Not trying to speak for the entire single Christian male population, I’ve done some smaller-scale research and have come up with some non-scientific results in order to help women to better understand guys, as well as attempt to educate some men out there, if willing.
Attraction and Admiration Many men are actually attracted to and admire women who are independent, self-assured, and established, no matter what some of you may think.
They are either themselves independent, self-assured, and established, or they are very dependent, unsure of themselves and basically “mama’s-boy” (looking for someone to take care of them).
No Need Perceived Some women give off the impression that they are so independent that they don’t need anyone else, especially a husband.
Many times this may not be the case, but a self-assured personality along with a settled lifestyle of having a home, career, and everything in order can make a man feel as if there’s no place for a man in her life.
Many men end up not pursuing women like this not out of intimidation, but rather out of perceived “ultra-independence” on the woman’s part.
According to many single males who I’ve talked with, some women puts out signals, consciously or unconsciously, that they aren’t interested in a relationship.
