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

"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…"

Salt Dragon replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"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…"

"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."

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…"

Jane replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"I appreciate all the honest advice that I think I had to hear. I texted him this afternoon and apologized for being distant and not compromising. I'm 24, I'm at the start of my career and my life. I'm just scared of neglecting other…"

Sir replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"Wish I could advise him.  I would say:  back off and see if she wants you back. To you, I say:  you "feel like I have to mother him and constantly reassure him."  Why do you feel that way?  I mean, he clearly…"

Liam Strain replied to Jane's discussion Lady Needs Advice
"Hmm...I don't really know, but from what it sounds like to me: It sounds a bit like you want your cake, and to eat it too - proverbially.  You cannot have it both ways. Love and a relationship demands compromise and sacrifice. If you are…"
