Men are assumed to be strong and macho all times. We believe that a man who shows the slightest of emotions is generally weak.Also, women prefer men who are strong and can protect them all the time.
Is it possible that men can have secrets? “No way! is what many women would answer". However, this is just another stereotype that our society imposed.
Here is a list of 10 secret fears that men never talk about:
1. Their Body
Usually, it is the other way round, people think that women are conscious about their body. They are constantly trying to achieve the perfect figure. However, what most people do not know is that the percentage of men sweating out in the gym is greater than women.Mens do worry about their body shape and their worst fear is somebody mentioning their beer belly.
The most common topic of conflict in a relationships is money. Men are assumed to be the natural bread maker of their family. They constantly fear of not having enough money or that they need to have a certain amount of money to keep their girlfriends/wives happy.However, care and attention are much more important for women. If we are wrong, and what really matters for a girl is money, then she is not worth your time.
People assume an ideal man is 6 inches tall. How can a man not worry about his height when the first thing woman notices is height.Womens always look for a men with good height and this is why most men fear about their height but they are too scared to accept it.
4.Other men can be a threat
Ever wondered why your boyfriend is getting jealous? There is a reason why his mood swings are taking a toll and that is because you can not stop talking about your wonderful colleague at work with a great sense of humor. It is normal for men to get jealous of other men too.Men’s jealousy is not usually as obvious as women’s, however, it hurts their self-esteem just as much. To wipe out his fear, you should talk to him honestly and explain that there is absolutely no threat.
Hair on the body and the head is always a problem for men. A little amount of hair on the body — what if it doesn’t look macho enough?A little amount of hair on the head -they cannot try out new trendy hairstyles to impress the ladies. Too much hair — is it too scary or too messy? And being bald is often the worst thing that can happen.Acording to ancient myth hair represent the manliness in a man.
Dieting is a common topic of discussion among women. You would rarely find a man talking about his diet to other men. That is because most men fear that talking about their diet and food schedules might make them sound feminine.But that doesn't mean they don't give a damn about their diet.Men also care about their bodies and about the foods they eat. Everyone wants to be healthy and in good shape. It’s just that men talk about this way less often.
7. Their relationship with their girlfriend
Often people think mens are insensitive in a relationship. However, the fact is that it takes a man more time to get over a breakup than a woman. Your boyfriend may not show it to you all the time, but he is equally worried about the relationship and you too.Many articles have been written in women’s magazines about saving relationships? However, if men start discussing this, women might think it’s strange and this is why most of the mens avoid talking about the relations which is why they are considered as brutal in a relationship.
If a man knows that their girlfriend has a number of their ex, they automatically get insecure and feel like they have to compete to match your standards. Womens should always take an initiative to ensure him his special place in your relationship.
9. Open expression of emotions
We often hear everyone telling boys from a very young age, not to cry and act like a man. This is us telling them to suck up their emotions and deal with them. These same boys when they grow up have a hard time expressing their emotions.They are scared of looking weak, of showing their true emotions.Womens can openly express their emotions but mens cannot do so as it will make them look weak.We as a society need to stop pressurizing men don’t add fuel to the fire, and don’t talk about how a man is SUPPOSED to handle difficulties. He owes nothing to anyone.
