An unstable relationship almost always leads to disaster, unless you can get a handle on it. Your man doesn’t want to constantly be wondering when you’re going to throw a fit, start an argument, or possibly threaten to end the relationship. It’s important for him to know that you’re there for him and together, you two are a team. A man’s woman is his backbone and often a big source of his strength. Be there for your man just like he’s there for you through thick and thin. Give him a solid, loving relationship so that he is reassured that even when times get tough, you two are in it together.
Obviously men are known for hiding their emotions and putting on a tough face, but contrary to popular belief, they really do have feelings. It’s important to communicate with your man and truly listen to him when he’s willing to open up to you. You should work on understanding him and creating that bond so he is always reassured that he can be honest and open with you when something is going on in his mind. Give him a safe place to be himself.
