Not All Men Are The Same: Don't Take Advice From Magazines

Updated on February 24, 2015

Not All Guys Act The Same, No Matter what Magazines Say.

I am sure every single woman has read all the articles when we have an issue with a guy. Is he just not that into you? These articles will tell you a man is not into you just because he isn’t doing certain things. I, myself have even read these and took them into consideration, only for them to be wrong and really screw up relationships. Not all men do the same things for the same reasons! A man could ignore you because he likes you, not because he is trying to get rid of you. Could he be avoiding you because he has lost interest? Yes, but that doesn’t mean it is guaranteed. Everyone should take these tips with a grain of salt because not every guy is the same.

Guys Pull Away For Reasons Only They Know


All Men Deal With Feelings Differently

It would be a boring world if all guys were the same and we could tell how they felt by their actions ALL the time. Just because he doesn’t call and only texts does not mean he isn’t into you. Just because he doesn’t drop his plans for you, doesn’t mean he isn’t falling for you. Guys are different, some are avoidant for their own security and some are just the average joe. Us women go looking for answers when our guy is acting out his ordinary. Just remember that no article can tell you the reason, and if you take that advice and go forgetting him because you think he may be cheating or just doesn’t like you, you could make a big mistake!


Vulnerability Scares Some Men

This can be why a man can act distant and uninterested, while he really is the opposite. I experienced it myself. I met a guy and he just wasn’t like the rest, although I didn’t know that at the time. I thought that if a guy started being distant it was because he just was losing interest or cheating. However, this wasn’t the case. However, because I read all of these articles, it made me believe that any reason was negative and damage the relationship that I had. Men can pull away for many reasons, including because they like you! Every guy deals with situations differently, and some men are so afraid of being vulnerable they would rather hide. You have to analyze it yourself rather than reading magazines that tell you this is why your man is acting different.

Articles in These Magazines and Their Sources

It is interesting to think about how many women read these articles such as in Cosmo on a daily basis, or use quizzes to test their boyfriends on how they feel. Yet the large majority of these articles are written by women! How are we as women supposed to be telling other women how their boyfriends feel about them just because they haven't called that day? Try not to be dependent on these magazines, and get to know your guy yourself.

      - Thanks for the comment, Jody. I'm not sure how faoublus my life is but it's definitely fun. Thank you! I'm with you on the games. I think they feel really forced and most ppl I know do not like them. I think food and drinks are enough to bring people together. Sometimes it's more painful if you don't know anyone and have to interact by playing games. It's like a team-building exercise at work!
