Men tend to misunderstand a woman’s need for reassurance – interpreting it as a complaint that he’s not a good enough partner.
You need to regularly make deposits of effort and love in order for a woman’s need for reassurance to be fulfilled so that she feels loved in the relationship.
He tells me he loves me and we’ll be fine, but can I trust that what he’s saying is truly how he feels? Am I going to push him away by my need for reassurance? After all, how do you believe him when he’s simply repeating the words you’ve asked him to say?
Because they don’t understand the REAL reason women need reassurance, men don’t automatically support that need.
Still, to calm the asker’s anxiety, they’ll come out biased toward inviting the reassuring answer.
