Is Your Man On The Way Out The Door? 5 Reasons Men Leave Women

What makes a man want to leave a woman? While the reasons men leave women they love may vary, there are a few distinct characteristics that men point to as the reason they choose to leave a woman rather than stick around.

Research suggests that while men and women are very different, there are a few certainties that every woman should understand about male behavior.

Here are the top 5 reasons men leave their significant others.

1. Difficulty connecting emotionally.

While women typically believe male behavior is not dictated by emotion, the opposite is generally true. Men require positive emotional connections to want to stay in a relationship. Women often feel the need to tell him everything they feel at a given moment, leaving him feeling drained and unwilling to share his own feelings.

If a man feels like he will get berated for opening up to his girlfriend or wife, he will eventually shut down, and turn his emotions inward. This leads to an emotional buildup, causing him to be aloof from both his partner and his own emotions. Once a man feels alone in a relationship he begins to look around for someone else to meet his emotional needs.

2. He feels like he your project.

Women have a tendency to try and ‘fix’ any man they get in a relationship with. Once a woman feels as though she isn’t getting what she deserves from her man she often will start demanding that he change.

Instead of communicating her needs effectively and calmly, she may fly off the handle or constantly nag the man she is in a relationship with. This is a strong motivator for a man to move on from the relationship. The way men see it is that if you’re not happy, then there is no reason to stay.

3. He fears losing his freedom.

Many see fear of losing freedom as a commitment issue, but this isn’t necessarily the case. If a man feels trapped in a relationship by a woman who always wants to know where he is, what he’s doing, and where he is going it is less of a fear of commitment and more of a loss of freedom he fears. Of course, every relationship should include devotion to one another, but it is unreasonable for either partner to treat the other as a child. If you give a man his space he will likely discover he wants to be with you, and will have no need to fear losing his freedom.

4. Dishonesty and cheating.

Obviously, if a man finds out his partner is cheating on him or is lying to him he will likely leave her behind. Men have an easier time letting their significant other go if they have been cheated on, and dishonesty closely follows this. As in any healthy relationship, loyalty and trust are extremely important and can make or break your relationship.

5. Sexual dissatisfaction.

Sex is very important in any romantic relationship. Men are driven by a desire to reproduce, and find emotional satisfaction with a partner they enjoy having sex with. Communication and an open mind can go a long way to keeping the relationship both exciting and sexy. But if the sex is boring and routine a man may find an excuse to leave.
