When we date, we always look for a strong man, but most of us don’t even know the signs of a weak man in a relationship, and why it actually matters.
Sadly, many women don’t know the signs of a weak man in a relationship. Now, this weakness I’m talking about is what makes a relationship one-sided.
A weak man isn’t one who cries. In fact, he’s actually a strong man if he’s able to cry freely and express his emotions.
A truly weak man is someone that you carry through life. Rather than an equal relationship, you do all the dirty work while he’s just along for the ride.
Though it may bring out your nurturing side, you’ll soon tire of it, trust me. Don’t stick around until he wears you down.
How to know the signs of a weak man in a relationship.
Our mothers always told us that we need to find ourselves a strong man. While some think about a physically strong man, your mom probably didn’t mean it like that. Okay, of course, she wanted you to be with a guy who has a little muscle, but she really wanted you to be a guy who’s mentally strong and independent.
A man who can fight for his own and isn’t going to be the child in the relationship. Right now, you have your boyfriend. You’re in a loving relationship, but you think what your mom told you. Does your boyfriend match?
You want a partner, not a man-child, so brush up and learn the signs of a weak man in a relationship.
1. You’ve Become A Nag:-
He’s made you into someone you swore you’d never be: a nag. You never were a nag before, but since you started dating him, you find yourself nagging more and more.
The thing is, you can’t help yourself. You need to constantly ask him to do things or remind him of what he has to do and then you wait for him to actually do it. If you’re feeling like a parent to your partner, that’s not how it’s supposed to work.
2. You Clean Up After Him:-
He leaves his clothes lying around or has food wrappers everywhere, but the thing is, though he can clean up his own mess, he doesn’t. Instead, he waits for you to do it. You clean up after him in more than a physical sense. If he has unpaid bills or needs an excuse to bail an event, you’re the one doing his dirty work. It’s like he’s a giant baby.
3. He Has “high-school” Interests And Friendships:-
When he hangs out with his friends, it’s literally like he’s in high school again, and not in a good way. He abuses alcohol or drugs, gets himself in trouble with people and just does stupid things. Let’s just say in a nice way, he never grew up. How can you have a serious conversation with someone who doesn’t know when enough is enough?
4. He Can’t Handle “the future” Conversations:-
You want to know what’s going to happen with the relationship, and you’re at that phase where you want to push things forward but the minute you bring up children or marriage, he freaks out.
You actually see the panic in his eyes and his brain calculating what he should do. If you mention the things that are involved in raising a child, well, you gave him a heart attack. If he doesn’t pick up after himself, how will he be able to change a diaper?
5. He Doesn’t Listen:-
I think this is a given. If you’re already nagging him, it’s clear that he’s a selective listener and is choosing not to hear you. But on top of that, he’s also choosing not to respect you. A strong man will listen to their partner. This doesn’t mean they’re going to agree, but they’re going to listen to what their partner has to say and go from there
