How are men and women’s emotional needs inherently different? Stating it plain and simple, men deal with emotions differently than women. “Like, REALLY differently”, emphasizes Richard Drobnick, Director of the Mars and Venus Counseling Center in Northern New Jersey. Men and women’s brains are wired differently, our hormones are different, and our emotional needs are different. So when it comes to relationships, Richard explains, men tend to do for women what men need, and women do for men what women need. We tend to give what we want to receive. And therein lies the problem. No matter how old we get, whether we are working to better a long-term relationship, or starting over again after 50, unless someone educates us about the differences in emotional needs and “NOT do unto our other, as we would have them do unto us” we continue to end up in a frustrated state of resentment and feel stuck! It truly is difficult to understand and accept our partner’s different set of emotional needs. In today’s video Richard provides some insight into what men wished women knew about them.
