Can you really tell a man everything on your mind — even the not-so-pretty stuff?  And can it bring you closer together? Yes … as long as you know these critical elements about how to communicate with him first.

Has a man ever told you of some plans he had to hang out with his friends, or travel somewhere by himself for whatever reason, and you pretended to be perfectly okay with it because you didn’t want to seem “needy?”

But then later, when he came back … BAM!

All those hurt, angry feelings came out, he withdrew, and then there’s a wedge between the two of you. You might conclude that you can’t be honest with a man, when in reality a little tweaking in terms of timing and delivery can make all the difference …

 

Stop Avoiding The Issue And Start Speaking Up
Here’s something you may not know about men, or even agree with, but it’s true …

 

A man absolutely wants you to be honest and straightforward with him.

 

This is what men like so much about the way they can communicate with each other. And, in fact, it drives them nuts when you aren’t open and direct.

 

If they are planning something that you don’t agree with, they want you to let them know at the start — as soon as possible — before it becomes a bigger issue or concern.

 

Here’s the beauty of telling a man what you think early on: it allows you to communicate in a way that’s less combative and negative than it would be if you were to have it fester in your mind for a while.
