In looking up articles for advice on how to communicate one’s needs in a relationship, I discovered an apparent difference in approaches based upon gender. [I know, obvious, right? Not to me…until now.]
I found an article on The Art of Manliness entitled How to Communicate Your Needs in a Relationship. Perhaps it is because I have read way too many articles aimed at women understanding their partners’/husbands’ needs that it struck me as interesting to come across an article intended for men with regard to them communication their needs to their wives/SOs.
It was very straightforward. No deep analysis or lecturing.
OMG, I actually felt relief.
For whatever reason, the way the article was written hit home with me right away. No over-thought required.
