6 Reasons Men Leave The Women They Love

Love is tricky. Why do men leave women when it takes so much courage to fall in love in the first place? For men, it might be more difficult to deal with falling in love than for a woman. When a man falls in love, he must take into account the suffering that might occur by opening up all of himself to her. Is the risk worth it?

A man rarely dives in fully but steps little by little into the world of second-guessing and ups and downs. Men know they are not born with an innate understanding of how women operate.

Sometimes a few simple factors can go a long way in increasing understanding. This can go both ways.

Here are 6 reasons why men leave the women they love:

1. He feels that she’s trying to fix him.

When a man starts to feel that he’s not enough, that his flaws are huge, or that he cannot be himself without judgment, he starts looking for the exit. Women, often without realizing it, tend to emasculate men by making them their projects and by trying to change or “improve” them.

Albert Einstein said, “Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.” What a man really needs is a woman who offers wholehearted encouragement so a man can discover who he truly is.

This is what we all need in a relationships. A man can grow and mature with the help of a loving and supportive partner.

2. He is threatened by the woman’s success.

In a study conducted by the University of Florida, men experience a huge blow to their self-esteem when their female partners experience success, even when they are not in direct competition.

A woman’s success also negatively impacts how the man views the future of their relationship.

If the man has not been able to attain the success he feels he deserves, this is often a pivotal reason he might leave a relationship. He cannot join her in her success or support her because he is inwardly comparing her success to his failures.

3. He feels bothered too often.

Men can zone out sometimes, but not more often than when a woman is saying the same thing to him repeatedly. Constant bothering and belittling can destroy a relationship. Men may play like children, but they are not kids. They rarely tolerate constant whining and complaining. Men need to feel appreciated and uplifted. They will ignore and avoid this type of ‘nagging’ because it adds to negative reinforcement, or even passive-aggressive conflict.

If he knows she is going to give him grief, he will not respond well to requests or comments. If he feels she will complain no matter what he does, he realizes there is no satisfaction in doing what she wants. To a man, a nagging woman is not a supportive or enjoyable partner to have.

 

4. He suffers a lack of intimacy.

Believe it or not, men crave intimacy just as much as women. If a man has to beg for it while the woman withholds it to get him to do things, he may leave the relationship to seek that connection with someone else.

A man will not stand by too long with a woman who will not participate in intimate encounters with her partner. A man falls in love with a woman for many reasons, but he also needs to feel that he is the most desirable person in her life.

5. She compares him to other men.

There is nothing more annoying to a man than listening to a woman talk about past relationships. When the woman starts to compare him to an ex, that’s the beginning of the end. Men do not want to analyze their partner’s past relationships and intimate connections.

A man wants to believe he is the only one that matters right now. He doesn’t want to hear that a previous lover did this or that. He wants to know that what he is doing right now is enough.

6. Her emotional co-dependency.

Men need their space. Men also need their friends. A man doesn’t want to be treated as a possession or feel like he is a babysitter. When a man begins to feel that he has lost his freedom to participate in sports, outings, or social gatherings with his friends, he just might choose to leave. A healthy relationship requires that both parties have their own set of friends and hobbies. Co-dependency tarnishes the spark of a relationship.

Men don’t over-analyze this feeling of being imprisoned. The moment they feel their lives have drastically been high-jacked, that’s when they break up. Men deeply fear losing their freedom.

Men fall in love with the expectation of being appreciated, respected and supported. If a man no longer feels like he is the hero of the story, he will naturally face a serious decision in whether or not he should change his relationship status.

  1. Oh dear this can only have been written by a man who is still on his journey to find the right woman. When you do you will have all of the things you wrote about us not doing..you have met your life partner yet, keep looking and keep positive, you will know when you have believe me, it will hit you like a rock!

  2. with all due respect sir i guess you forgot to include that men tend to leave women because they have found another women which according to them is better. they leave because they want a new flavor or just they are not satisfied with their partner

  3. I broke up with my last girlfriend of two years because of her jealousy and insecurity. She had been going to counseling for it, but never really got over it. We were in a long distance relationship, which didn’t help matters either.

  4. You need to add. Giving birth to children or even being pregnant with children. Whether you are married or not some men run like cowards when that stick turns pink. It signifies eternity & responsibility, but not responsibility to a job they can ever quit. No, it’s one that as long as they are with you, they can never quit. It’s a responsibility that looks them in the face daily & some men do not get enjoyment out of being a father.

  5. Number 1: Do your part in the relationship so she does not have to nag!
    2 is a sexist mans problem. It should not even be in here.
    If a man truly loves his woman he will be happy for her that she is successful and will ignore the idiotic pressures of a sexist and misogynistic society created by christian religion that the male brings home the bacon blah blah blah.
    The rest are all valid points.
    Really it’s about respect. Treat your man with respect. treat your woman with respect.
    The end.

  6. This article is appreciated, but the gender stereotypes are surprising for this website. I have gone through these things myself, as a woman in a heterosexual relationship. There are no bright lines on how each gender will always act or react in relationships.
