5 Secrets Your Guy Doesn’t Want You to Know

He heard what you said. He’s just not interested in hearing it atrepparttar moment. Don’t try to give your man instructions or talk about your feelings when he’s watching TV (especially sports), eating, reading, or has just come home from work. He will only be half listening. His mind is on other things like: will his team win, his day at work, how hungry he is, etc. He can only pay attention to one thing at a time. If he lets you think that he is giving you his full attention, and then you will want to talk to him at these inappropriate moments allrepparttar 122046 time. If he gives you a detailed response, you’ll just continue to talk. If he completely ignores you, you’ll get mad. If he pretends that he is listening, you will be content and walk away.

2.He Does Look at Other Women.

Not because he wants to cheat, but because men are visually stimulated. Getting mad at him for looking is just going to make him sneak a peek. Hey, it’s just a passing glance. It’s not like we don’t check guys out too!

3.He Needs Time Away From You.

Men need time to reflect, socialize and just get away from it all. Men likerepparttar 122047 time to regroup. It doesn’t mean that they don’t want to be with us, it is just an escape to appreciate what they have at home. So lighten up, while he’s out ofrepparttar 122048 house, takerepparttar 122049 kids out or get a babysitter and go something you enjoy.

4.He Doesn’t Feel Like Being Bothered Sometimes

You’ve probably asked him to do something several times, but yet he still doesn’t do it in a timely manner. In frustration, you do it yourself. What is he thinking, “Thank Goodness!” Men do things at their own pace. You can ask your man to take outrepparttar 122050 trash and 3 hours later, it’s still there. Technically, he still has time to take outrepparttar 122051 trash. In his mind,repparttar 122052 trash isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and if you do it yourself, that just makes it better for him.

5.He Really Enjoys Gossip

6.Yes, He Was Thinking About Sex

Your man has a far away look in his eyes. He seems distant. He was thinking about sex. He can’t help it, he thinks about it several times a day. Wouldn’t you prefer that he thinks about it several times a day rather than having sex several times a day?
