Ever dated a man who was way more emotional than you were? He was the co-dependent, clingy, needy and insecure one? He was the one who needed assurance from you and that you’ll never walk away.
Men will never admit they are emotional. You see being emotional can be in so many levels and not just crying to a sad movie.
Here are some pointers that you could or have dated an emo-sapien:
He feels neglected when you are out with your friends and you did not invite him
He’s sensitive to everything you say and oblivious to everything he says
He instantly wants to be open about the relationship and is upset if you need time
He wants to hang out with the gang all the time so that he could constantly be with you
When there is a fight, you have to be the one calling and consoling him
You always need to understand where he is coming from
He’s always the victim
The term ‘personal space’ has no meaning to him
You have to be the strong one for him every time shit happens
He keeps calling and calling and calling if you don’t pick up
He sends you lengthy messages on the phone about how he feels
He keeps holding your hands even at a friend’s place during a game of monopoly
Emo is men’s taboo word, call them that and they become instantly over sensitive and terribly defensive.
I admit I would like a sensitive man but someone who’s able to understand my temperaments and my feelings just as how I would his…. period. I don’t want to be caught in an emotional web where everything is about his feelings, his needs and his wants.
My man has to be a man, to be the one for me when I fall, to be my pillar of strength and most importantly to allow me to be the woman in the relationship.
