      Its the question that’s long plagued womankind but the answer is simple. Either a) he’s not interested, or b) his plane’s crash-landed on a desert island. Unfortunately the first reason is much more likely. But don’t panic, there is a third one - he may be playing hard to get. If your man hasn’t called in three days and you haven’t spotted his picture in the papers under the headline ‘Man Kidnapped‘, he’s probably just not interested.

      “Why didn’t he call?”

      Why does he say he finds revoltingly tarty women attractive when he’d never date them?

      That’s because given half a chance men would date them. If Jodie Marsh begged him for a date, chances are he’d consider it. While you may think these women are ‘revoltingly tarty’ your man probably quite likes them. Admitting that however would just be asking for more trouble, so it’s safer to claim these women as non-girlfriend material.

      Is he really less emotional than me?

      Yes. It’s not that men are made of stone, he just doesn’t want to express himself the way women do. When it comes to relationships it means he can be a little emotionally stunted. He wants to tell you how much he feels but just finds it harder.

      Why does he take a day to reply to a simply email/txt message?

      Men are men. You have to remember that men don’t obsess about relationships like women do. If a guy sent you an email saying ‘I just wanted to say I was thinking of you‘, would you a) think ‘oh that’s nice‘, then get back to whatever you were doing or b) spend the day dissecting every word as if it were The Da Vinci Code? Men take messages at face value.

      Does he honestly prefer me with no makeup on?

      Quite possibly, yes. In fact if the truth got out it could bring the cosmetics industry to its knees. Men are looking for simple things in a woman - does she like me and will she laugh at my jokes? Second is she nice? Simplistic but rather sweet, he likes you for you.

        • Great post Marta,

          Guys will always be guys, but now it’s specially challenging to have an open line of communication. Lately I’ve been hearing from my single girlfriends, that the new method of communication is text messages. How horrible....

          Liverpool,  

          here is my post on younger men, older women
          that you might enjoy.

          All the best,
          Y
