I’m going to issue a plea to all the women reading this article: if you see any of yourself in this description, learn to look for those things you can respect about your man, and tell him what those are regularly. Build him up and say “thank you” for what he does do well. Nearly every man told me that he would run through a brick wall for a woman who made him feel like he was her hero.
In other words, make him feel like you believe he is competent and could do a great job of making you breakfast in bed… and you might just be surprised one day!
