Let's first talk about what causes a man to not feel like a man.
1. When you try to do everything
Most women have the belief that in order to be an independent woman, she has to do everything herself. Getting help from a guy, to some women, is losing power.
What you have to realize is that in order for a man to feel like a man, he has to feel like you need him. If he sees that you do everything for him and you never ask for help, he can’t feel that masculine pride a man feels when he helps a woman he loves.
2. When he feels like he doesn’t measure up to other guys in your life
When a guy feels that he isn’t as masculine as the men you once loved, it makes him feel like shit. It’s okay to have competition, just make sure he feels like he’s winning. Make sure that he feels like HIS EFFORTS are what conquered your heart.
So how do you make him feel like a man? A few things you could do!
1. Feign weakness
Feigning weakness is all about communicating that you need his help and making him feel that pride of helping you out.
Let's say you’re the type of woman who does everything herself and you’re going to paint your room. Rather than doing it yourself, ask him if he could do it.
Act like you need emotional support and allow him to help you out and then act like he actually helped. Is it a white lie? Maybe, but you’re doing it to empower him!
2. Be surrounded by other men wanting you and return to him
Nothing makes a man feel like a man than being with the woman everyone wants. A good thing to do is to ensure that you surround yourself with men by doing activities where men are the majority. Go do martial arts, or even an activity where it’s one man and a bunch of women listening to him like Yoga. Why? Because you go back home and talk to him about the class and how awesome a teacher he is. But make sure that, if you notice him getting a little jelly, you validate the living shit out of him.
3. Compliment him on something he’s worked on and have not been recognized for
Let's say your boyfriend and/or husband is a great basketball player but everyone knows it. If you compliment him on it, he won’t take it as hard. If he happens to be an artist and he’s decent at it, but no one knows about it, praising him for it will have a deeper effect on him. IT’s something he’s been seeking someone to notice him on.
