Man’s Love Survival Guide

Setting clear boundaries and saying “no” without guilt is important for growing healthy relationships.  Friendships thrive when everyone knows the rules.  This can be difficult during Libra Sun or Moon time as we are more apt to waffle and change our minds.  If you are a Libra then you are especially challenged to stick to what you truly feel is right for you.  Communication is the key.  But are you communicating clearly with yourself?

 

 

I just had to laugh at the posting on this website.    http://chanceencounters.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/women-vent-men-solve/  It points out the frustration from many men I counsel.  Often men do not get a clear message from the women they love.  Yes we women need to vent.  Perhaps you ladies might choose a trusted friend instead of your man.  Men just want to “fix it”, especially if it concerns the person they love.  One of our male friends recently said there were only five phases a man needed to survive in a women’s world.  Here they are in no special order.  They can be used in any combination.

 

Yes dear                huh?                      Okay                      

Sorry                    that’s right!

 

Now women if you want great conversation with the man in your life, then you might want to ensure that he clearly understands what you want from him.  That means establishing the boundaries and rules before you open the dialogue.  If you need to just vent, for heaven’s sake let him know that is all you are doing.  “Honey I just need to vent.  I don’t need you to fix it, but please listen.” is pretty simple to say. Don’t assume your partner knows what you need from him or her when you want to communicate something.  Set boundaries!

 

Reflection Questions

1.      Do you want clear two way communication with your partner? 

2.      On a scale of 1 – 10 how clearly can you set boundaries?

3.      Do you feel guilty when you say no but it doesn’t feel right to say yes?

4.      Name 4 people in your inner friendship circle that you can safely vent to.

    Hi Sherrie, and thankyou for your comments on Women Vent-Men Solve. It has taken me my whole dating life to figure that out! Women are such strange creatures! lol

    Not so strange when you realize we are from another planet! Thanks for such a wonderful giggle gift on your blog! I want other women to read it and realize this is what most men feel. You did such an eloquent job of it! Good luck visiting the planet of women!

    I had to laugh at this as well….I’v had many conversations with trusted male friend about these issues. We call it lessons from the “guy” playbook. *smile* Oh, and sometimes I get to give him lessons from the “gal” playbook too.

    I am sure to let him know when I need his ear and a perspective as opposed to his marvelous problem solving skills. Nope, I don’t always need someone to “fix” it, or me, lol.
    I am really enjoying reading your blog. Thank you for stopping by and pointing me back here.
    Blessings!
