NGTrends asked men why they hide their feelings, or “play it cool” I asked why they often put up pretenses that they are cool, “macho,and tougher than they feel.They do this because they feel they have to especially when dealing with women.Women often wonder why men take so long to make a phone call. For example,a man asks for her phone number and then wait six days before calling. Then he takes her out on a really fun date and wait till another five days before calling again.Meanwhile, she scratching her head and asking, “what’s up with that?”
Men are used to been turn down by women so this delaying tactics is how they keep their guard up.In the beginning, he will be calculated.He will rational as opposed to emotional,because to him appearing too obvious or emotional will be perceived as assign of weakness. For example, on Tuesday he will say to himself,I think i will call her on Thursday.Most men don’t have a clue that the woman would have preferred a call on Tuesday. So why do they do it?They do it to “save face” and to give the impression they are “in control” of the situation. An attractive guy by the name of Abbey surprised me with his candor.He said,”you have to approach women looking like u do it all the time, and it isn’t a big deal to you.The minute you act like it important to you,the woman smells it and she treats you differently.” This is the reason men will wait before calling and then act a little bit cavalier.They believe that women disrespect men who appear weak.
