ADVICE FOR MEN

What do strong independent women want from the men in their lives? If you are wondering what might be going through the mind of the woman in your life, or who you hope to have in your life, I might be able to shed some light through my own lessons in the dynamics of men and women in relationships.   

Sometimes the third party in a dynamic between two isn’t another person, it’s the ego of one individual. Men’s egos show up in many ways to push a good woman who is patient and loving out of their lives.

Just like being feminine, being an alpha male is nuanced and maybe simplified with that one term alone. Depending on how it is defined and communicated a woman wants a man who takes control but isn’t controlling, who needs us but isn’t needy, and who has sensitivity but isn’t driven by emotions alone.

“Marya, I do not want to be the man who disappoints you. You do not deserve that.”

The power of those words were tremendous. I sat and reflected on them for days and now when I think about how men in my life have responded to me, I realize what has been missing.

What allows a woman to exhale and lean out to make the space for a man to lead and feel his masculine energy is honored?

Without intentional actions, you leave a gap that can be filled without a woman doing anything more than just being herself.
