What do women mean when they say that a man is not "emotionally supportive"?
How can you provide emotional support?
Emotional support. For women I think it is no more than availability. I do not know, really.
Men and women think differently because they are raised differently.Conditioning of society pegs them into role playing, I am a man you are a woman. Other than the difference in anatomy we are all human beings. In this conditioned role playing, immediately there are restrictions.
The conditioned demand for emotional support, expected by women from men normally given by women to other women as friends is no more than "I am here, if you need me. All you have to do is call."
This is kind of a tough one to answer. Emotional support can mean different things to different women.
My own personal view of it, is that whenever I am down and spilling my guts to my man, if I have a man that is, it does wonders if he just holds me and tells me what he thinks. One thing I can't stand is when a man has nothing more than one or two words to say about the whole matter when I'm looking for his complete opinion. I do the same for him. If he is having trouble, I emotionally support him by sitting with him, hugging, and talking about it. Not necessarily solving the problem, but just talking about it. Brainstorm a bit you know. Telling each other how we feel about the issue at hand. It's also a handy exercise in strengthening the relationship.

If a woman pays on a date, does it mean the man has been placed in the 'friend-zone'?Traditionally when a man woos a woman he is expected to get the cheque. So if a woman pays the bill does it mean that she thinks of the man more as a friend than as a serious potential partner?
