Men are 'in the dark' about relationship troubles

Posted on: February 26, 2013 16:27:40

Men are Communication in a relationship is vital for it to be a success. Without it, feelings and emotions can be suppressed, and a breakdown in conversation can ultimately lead to the ending of a partnership.

If you've found it difficult in the past to share your inner-most thoughts with your loved one, then the chances are it could have played a part in the split between the two of you.

While there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to discussing your feelings with a new partner, feeling comfortable enough to talk candidly with that special someone is something you might not want to take for granted.

According to a new report, men are often in the dark about relationship difficulties a couple might be facing, which could result in a "worse outcome" if things don't go to plan between the two.

Indeed, the way in which men and women react to certain life events appear to be drastically different, and the view that men really are from Mars and women are from Venus doesn't appear to be too far from the truth sometimes.

Hoping to raise awareness about male health and wellbeing issues, Relate, alongside the Men's Health Forum, looked further into gender differences in a number of areas including relationships, work-related problems and financial difficulties.

The startling results indicated that men tend to be unaware about any relationship struggles, despite obvious warning signs that things might not be going as well as first hoped.

As a result, the relationship support organisation suggested that many males don't seek help and view counselling as a sign of weakness.

Instead, guys are unlikely to turn for advice until 'the ship is sinking', whereas women are more willing to go and see someone professional when dating to review the health of the relationship.

Ruth Sutherland, chief executive at Relate said: "We have been aware for some time that men don't like to trouble their doctors or can't find time to access health services but this is the first time we have really found the same pattern when it comes to getting help for, or even talking about, relationship difficulties.

"It is clear that some men need help that is more practical and solution-focused," she added.
