7.Give him space
Women want attention and emotional validation, men want space. It’s really that simple. Men thrive on making their aspirations a reality. A woman’s job is to be the strength behind the man. You won’t always be his first priority, at least not in the way you envision or expect it. Face of life: men put work first, no matter what they say. That’s just the way the dice rolls.
Men also like to wallow or retreat (to work things out mentally or just let things pass) and to just exist without question. It’s innately illogical and women can’t stand it. But old folks say a little space slides all things back to their orbit. And, if he really loves you, he will demonstrate it in his own way, in his own time.
You see, women respond intuitively and usually instantly, but men prefer to reflect then react. Accept it. Don’t try to lead or ambush him as impatient as you feel. Do him the honors. Remove yourself temporarily. Give space. He will be relieved he’s absolved of his duties to you. But soon he will wonder what’s up, whom you’re with and if those people fancy what’s his. This thought cycle pumps his testosterone and he’s guaranteed to re-initiate interest like the good ole days.
