10 Ways Women Emasculate Men (without even realizing it)

emasculate men

Women can emasculate men without even realizing it. Here are ten ways you might be emasculating men, and why it drives men away.

What does ’emasculate men’ mean? defines emasculation as castration, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. I’m referring to The Urban Dictionary definition of emasculation: “…the removal of a male ego, pride, empowerment.”

Women are often unaware when they do this. They wonder why men get so angry, defensive, or shut down. A common example of emasculation is when a man is driving with his significant other. He turns left to get on the highway, and she says, “You’re going the wrong way. The back roads are faster.” She’s making him wrong and herself right, and this leads to a big fight. “But, I was just trying to help”, she says. By trying to help, she’s subconsciously trying to control him. He feels emasculated, because he now believes he can’t do anything right in her eyes. This can lead to the fracturing of many relationships.

Watch this video to learn how to stop emasculating men and create the loving relationship you want.

An Introvert’s Guide to Online Dating

introvert's guide

Online dating can be challenging for introverts. In ‘An introvert’s guide to online dating’, you’ll learn how to make dating work for you!

Introverts report having fewer romantic relationships  than extraverts. One of the reasons is because they often take more time in forming meaningful relationships. And they don’t feel as comfortable in social settings where most people meet and fall in love.

That’s why online dating can be a great fit for introverts. Rather than shouting over loud music at a social gathering or bar – an introvert’s nightmare – they can browse potential matches from the comfort of their home. And they can take their time when writing messages to the people they connect with online. Perfect for those of us who like to think and process before we speak or write.

But that doesn’t necessarily make online dating fun or easy. This video is an introvert’s guide to online dating. You’ll learn how to make online dating more enjoyable and less draining.
