Men initiates love but fear to advance same until they feel safe and see their better-half in the woman. (credit: shutterstock)
An ideal man has phobia for intimate commitment because he believes that a better woman would appear someday, and making promises verbally and/or behaviourally to his current partner is a huge disservice to his perceived sweetheart and better-half who lives in Fantasy Island and keeps beeping his heart but is yet to appear and may never appear on earth.
In contrast a woman feels a bird at hand is worth two in the bush and she wants to avail herself of the opportunity at hand. All the while she was tormenting you, extending her ‘yes’ and expending your energy she’s already in dating-mode and when she finally says yes she feels you’re worth it.
