    Men argue for the right to be free while women argue for the right to be upset. Men want space while women want understanding.

    Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus is a manual for loving relationships. It reveals how men and women differ in all areas of their lives. Not only do men and women communicate differently but they think, feel, perceive, react, respond, love, need, and appreciate differently. They almost seem to be from different planets, speaking different languages and needing different nourishment.

    Men primarily need trust, acceptance, appreciation, admiration, approval, and encouragement. Women primarily need caring, understanding, respect, devotion, validation, and reassurance.

    Men are motivated and empowered when they feel needed…. Women are motivated and empowered when they feel cherished.

    As a man matures he also learns that he may be giving up himself, but his major change is becoming more aware of how he can succeed in giving. Likewise, as a woman matures she also learns new strategies for giving, but her major change tends to be learning to set limits in order to receive what she wants.
    Krystyna Popovahas quoted4 years ago
    This same change commonly takes place in men and women as they mature. In her younger years, a woman is much more willing to sacrifice and mold herself to fulfill her partner’s needs. In a man’s younger years, he is much more self-absorbed and unaware of the needs of others. As a woman matures she realizes how she may have been giving up herself in order to please her partner. As a man matures he realizes how he can

    1. A man tries to change a woman’s feelings when she is upset by becoming Mr. Fix-It and offering solutions to her problems that invalidate her feelings.
    2. A woman tries to change a man’s behavior when he makes mistakes by becoming the home-improvement committee and offering unsolicited advice or criticism.

    A man needs to work at remembering that complaining about problems does not mean blaming and that when a woman complains she is generally just letting go of her frustrations by talking about them. A woman can work at letting him know that though she is complaining she also appreciates him.

    She could say some of the following comments:
    “I’m sure glad I can talk about it.”
    “It sure feels good to talk about it.”
    “I’m feeling so relieved that I can talk about this.”
    “I’m sure glad I can complain about all this. It makes me feel so much better.”
    “Well, now that I’ve talked about it, I feel much better. Thank you.”

    Understanding, trust, compassion, acceptance, and support are the solution, not blaming our partners.
    Abdel Derhas quoted3 months ago
    A woman’s tendency to be compulsive relaxes as she remembers that she is worthy of love—she doesn’t have to earn it; she can relax, give less, and receive more. She deserves it.

    Not to be needed is a slow death for a man.
    Abdel Derhas quoted3 months ago
    Given the opportunity to prove his potential, a man expresses his best self. Only when he feels he cannot succeed does he regress back to his old selfish ways.
    Abdel Derhas quoted3 months ago
    Martians talk about problems for only two reasons: they are blaming someone or they are seeking advice.
