Ladies, are you ready for this news? It appears that men are not the jerks we’ve always been told. Told you it was big news. Now, for the explanation…

Men everywhere are speaking up about what they want in a relationship.  Turns out, men aren’t actually the cold-hearted, chauvinistic, sloppy, anti-sappy, insensitive guys we thought. Okay, some are, but it appears that men have finally caught up with the majority of us women in this whole relationship/love thing. In a survey of 1,000 men, when asked what they long for in a relationship, the majority of them report honesty, long-term, deep, real bonding and (gasp!) commitment.

My theory is that some behave like jerks in relationships, partly due to pressures of masculinity. For some being “manly” has been an important aspect of their lives growing up, and it has been taught that the definition of manhood is being without emotions, or at least expressing them. This “manliness” often results in a distance between male/female relationships because the lack of intimacy and emotional fulfillment.

Men are beginning to break free from the stigma and pressure of emotional connections. This shift could be positive, especially for the ladies out there who’ve been on the hunt for a man who’s in touch with his emotions and doesn’t have any problem showing his sensitive side. I think it’s now safe to say that they have evolved – or at least are evolving. This is great news because lasting relationships often require both partners to be understanding and put forth effort to meet each other’s wants and needs – emotional support included.

Don’t take positive news to mean that it’s safe to let your guard down, though. Not every man is going to have the right intentions as far as relationships go. But, you no longer have reason to believe that all chivalry and men with marriage potential are out the window. In other words, there are a lot a “nice guys” our there, ladies just have to take a chance in finding out which ones they are. You shouldn’t have to look too hard either.

A man will show you who he is in due time. Patience is key. As you’re courting, pay attention to how a man treats you, his patterns – consistency is important. A man that is faking his evolution can only fake for so long – it will eventually fade. Real change is lasting. An evolved man will be confident and mature enough to establish an emotional connection that fulfills you long beyond the excitement of the honeymoon stage. That being said, once you find this evolved man, your chances of actually reaching a honeymoon will probably be exponentially greater.
