Emotional Intelligence and Masculinity
Miles’ emotional intelligence is not just a front for the cameras. He was able to see right through the fact that Karen was used to a different type of dude. And that his being so emotionally available might be jarring for her because she’s never been with a man like that. So it was right that he hit her with the question. Can emotional intelligence and masculinity mesh? It’s really something she needs to sit with. Because almost every time emotions come up in conversation, Karen is talking about wanting a masculine man. In reality, what she’s likely used to is toxic masculinity. And that’s sad.
