Very true, however I would also add that no matter what age a man is, I find that they all have one thing in common – difficulty articulating negative emotions. My ex stayed silent when he was upset about something & avoided talking about his feelings when we were together. Later he would whine about what was upsetting him on What’s App. This is what drove us apart & caused our break up.
I would rather stay single than be in a relationship with a guy who can’t express his emotions fully, it’s very stifling. A grown man in his forties should be able to talk about what’s bothering him & not bottle things up. No one is a mind reader!
