Hi all,First up, yes I am a woman that's part of The Art of Manliness chat forum because women's forums are very water-down and sugar coating. Thus, I am here. I love the podcast, I find the advice…Continue

"Perhaps this is a case of the Nice Guy Syndrome (see Dr Robert Glover podcast on this site or alternatively see Glover's book, No More Mr. Nice Guy). I recently read the book and it discusses men who are emotionally needy on their partner. I…"

"Thumbs up to you.  Better to be two wholes trying to navigate a relationship together, often diverging, than seeking a better half (person or things) to make us balanced and complete.  We are the gift and the answer as we are.…"

"There is a difference between taking care of self and taking care of self first."

"But do you care what kind of car your favorite chef drives?  Or how good of cook your mechanic is? You can take care of people in some ways even while struggling with others."

Sir replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"It is possible to put the beloved first without giving up all your hobbies and stopping exercising!  I'm living proof.  So's my wife.  I expect Muir and his other half can also attest. So is it just semantics?  It makes…"

"I admire your wisdom and insight.  There's probably more men in your relationship dynamics than women, but then again Im twice your age and wish women were more independent in relationships.  Could you invite your boyfriend to work…"

Todd McFarland replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"I might have phrased that poorly. What I meant is that if you don't feel good about yourself because you give up all your hobbies and stop exercising, you won't be of much good to anyone else."

Stewart M. Davenport replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"Just a thought: you value your time exercising, right? He wants more time with you, right? Why not invite him along? Shared exercise time can be a great way for him to spend some quality time together, while allowing you to continue your hobbies. I…"

Jack Bauer replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"It sounds like you're his top priority ... and your top priority. He's into you. And you're into you, but will let him come along when it's convenient for you. If you value your single life as much as you value your relationship…"

Kit the Odd replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"I kind of agree and kind of disagree. You need to take care of yourself as far not bringing problems into the relationship.  Never completely possible, of course.  But things like learning to handle money instead of just depending of the…"

John Muir replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"I disagree. I think the key to being a good spouse/partner is to take care of the other first"

Sir replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"Putting yourself first is natural before you're in love.  Love values the other as much as the self."
Apr 8
Todd McFarland replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"You have to take care of yourself first before you can be a good partner, wife, or otherwise.  Don't sacrifice the progress you've made or other things that are important to you.  It won't do either of you any good."

David F. replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"Life is a balance. It may simply be his way of showing his care and concern. He may simply want to assure that you do love him and he is not a fling for you.   If you can do it, try having coffee during the week to check in and align planners…"

Sir replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"I like this too.  I'm reminded of when I made the decision to marry my beloved.  I would have given up any hobby for her, any pastime, any schedule.  I didn't have to give these things up, of course, because she's…"

Kit the Odd replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"Much like Muir above, I think you are at different stages.  (Keep in mind that this diagnosis is based on very limited information, so take it for what it is worth.) It sounds like he wants a "full-on" relationship, with you as a…"
