I spoke with several women about what men do that may cause a woman to feel insecure. Below is a sampling of some of their responses. Add yours in the comment section!
“While in mixed company, a husband is always heard talking about how wonderful a friend’s wife is and all the things she does. Correcting how his wife does things, even simple things like folding laundry or cooking or keeping house.”
“Not making date nights or creating special moments.”
“Not spontaneously telling her he loves her.”
“Discounting the work she does outside the home and in, by coming across as if his schedule and events are more important.”
“Hanging with ‘the guys’ on a more regular basis than with his wife.”
“Keeping close relationships with women he knew before getting married.”
“One thing my husband is good at is making me feel secure in our relationship. If there was anything that made me feel insecure it would be that he does not follow up his words with actions. This is probably the case for a lot of men, but William is good at saying, “I love you,” but not good at showing it. So how do I know he really loves me if his actions don’t say it? I need more than words to let me know things are good. He could be saying the right words, and then going behind my back and showing someone else the right actions (which I know he isn’t doing), but words are so easy for men to say, but actions is where the real truth lies.”
“When I don’t have verbal feedback and he gets quiet – I feel insecure…it leaves me wondering, ‘what is he thinking?’ and then I try to think of what he might be thinking.”
“When I feel that he is short with me in front of his friends. (This is rare and hasn’t happened in a while but when it happens it miffs me off).”
“When we MAJORLY disagree on something VERY important to me.”
“When I hear ZERO feedback – positive or negative about something I’ve done.”
