My wife has several female friends who seem to have trouble finding a guy, or keeping a guy, or just interacting with guys in general. Men have long been mystified by what goes on in a woman’s mind, but until recently, it was never very clear to me that women might also be confused about what men are thinking. Lately, women have asked for my advice on their relationships. Typically, when it’s not the guy’s fault and she shouldn’t just forget about him and move on, the problem boils down to some faulty assumptions on what it means to be a man, and what women should expect when a guy is interested in them.
This is not to say that the woman is always wrong, or needs to try extra hard to find a way to “keep a guy,” while the guy does whatever he wants. There are many times when the man is wrong, but in this article I’m focusing on a few mistakes I see women make, from time to time.
So, here is my advice. I tried not to sugar-coat anything. It’s coming to you raw, and sometimes brutally honest.
