Why Girls Want A Guy With A Soft Side

We're not saying we want guys who cry at the drop of a hat, but it's okay to show us how you really feel.

Why Girls Want A Guy With A Soft Side

Don't get me wrong, it's attractive when a guy is assertive and gives off that "manly" vibe. Some of us are even turned on by that fresh-out-of-the-gym glow. But any girl can tell you that there's something way more attractive about a guy with a soft side who isn't an egotistical macho meat head.

Trustworthy. This is the kind of guy who can open up to you when the time is right. He doesn't hide the way he feels or pretends he's not feeling anything at all. He'll let you know when something is bothering him or admit the way he actually feels about you. A common misconception is that, "The soft side is the weak side". Personally, I think that the guy who can break down his walls to let you in is the guy you want to keep around. There's no wondering with him; nothing that you constantly question in your head. You don't have to ask yourself if he's faithful because you just know.

Everything just feels sweeter with the guy who isn't afraid to show affection. The way he holds your hand when you're walking down the street. The butterflies you feel when he holds your face and kisses you. This is the guy who'll make you feel loved.

He knows how to listen, even when he doesn't want to--and with an open ear. When you cry because you're on your period, or stressed about absolutely nothing, he listens and knows how to comfort you at your weakest moments. There's no judgement, or uneasiness when you're falling apart because he knows what you need and he gives it to you. He's not afraid of commitment.

Every chance he gets to show you off, he does. It doesn't matter if he's around his guy friends or his family, he wants everyone to know your his. We all know the guy who acts like an ass towards you around his guy friends because he's "too cool", or doesn't want to admit that he's tied down. There's honestly nothing worse than "that" guy.

He doesn't have two sides. There's a 10/10 chance that you've met a guy who talks complete smack about his girlfriend or complains about her when she's not around. The guy who's clear about his soft side doesn't want to be someone else when he's away from you.

He get insanely jealous... but you like it. Guys who admit they are jealous when you're going out in your best outfit without them, or see a guys name pop-up on your phone are very obviously showing how much they care. Us girls love it when a guy admits their jealously because it shows that they're afraid to lose us.

All in all, a guy that shows off his soft side is confident and there's nothing more appealing than a confident man.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
