Are you applying masculine traits that have brought you success in your professional life to your love life? If so, you’re most likely feeling frustrated and confused about not finding the same success in love. Here’s why.
If you spend much of your waking hours at work, you most likely are explaining things logically and sequentially to get others on board with your perspectives and projects. Trying to connect with dates or with your partner using a similar approach will make you seem like a guy. These masculine traits bring you success at work, but when it comes to love, masculine traits have the opposite effect.
If you want to be with a masculine man who pursues you, connect with your feminine essence. Femininity is the one thing that differentiates you from a man. Femininity is about expressing your softer side. It’s more than the way you dress, wear your makeup and style you hair.
A Feminine Woman Has Depth
Words without feelings and emotions are like a beautiful woman who is not attractive on the inside. Both have no depth. A feminine woman has depth. She is in touch with her feelings and isn’t afraid to be open. She sees vulnerability as a sign of strength and the place where deeper connections are made.
She knows that the way to a man’s heart is by expressing her feelings and emotions with grace. And when she does, she provides a safe place for her man to open up and just be himself. He feels accepted and respected for who he is. And in turn, she feels appreciated and cherished.
