Diva are consistently looking to better themselves and gain knowledge on topics, including how to better themselves and their relationships. This week in our Divas Wanna Know series we are focusing on communication and commitment questions that Divas sent into us. So we asked our panel to give their insight and share their thoughts from a male perspective.
Why do men use texting, email, chat, and other nonverbal methods to end a relationship? Why do they feel that’s acceptable?
“Unfortunately this is a generational thing, it’s irresponsible, disrespectful and lazy. What used to be a cop-out confined to High School and College is now infiltrated into “adult relationships.” Grown men in their late 20’s and up to their 40’s are using texting as way to deceive and avert responsibility. Why? Because way before the relationship is over, he’s already divorced his emotions and doesn’t want to deal with the woman’s. In his eyes sending a text, email or any other non verbal communication is his way of not dealing with the “emotional drama.” However, If a man needs to have a serious conversation with his woman it needs to face to face, period.” -GentMovement
What does it take for men to commit to a relationship?
“Love, and the assurance that the one you’re with is the best” -Nikoli
“Every guy is different. There’s no one factor. As for me, if I can be myself without having to check what I say or do then we’re good.” -HanzNobe
“Knowing we are respected. Men need to feel respected as much as a woman needs to feel she is loved. This is done by understanding and valuing our contributions and achievements and providing encouragement as we complete our lifework. Doing so not out of obligation but admiration will make it very easy for a man to commit.” – MrTramuel
