Reader Question:

Why is it when I have a lady to open up to and share about myself, they do not respond back after I pour my heart out to be respectful to their wish. I am a honest and sincere person.

Expert’s Answer:

Hi Leland,

How are things going in Georgia? It sounds like you are a man who has been burned many times and could use a little guidance. I think it’s fantastic that you’re open and honest with your feelings – not all men are. I’d also like to think that most women love a guy who is able to pour his heart out. So why aren’t the specific women in your life responding to this truthfulness?

Maybe it’s not that you need to change the way you’re communicating. Maybe you need to change the type of woman you’re communicating with. Some people in relationships like to play a game of cat and mouse. It sounds like you’re the mouse and she’s the cat. Once the mouse is tired and surrenders himself, the cat loses interest and looks for another toy to play with. Make sense? Instead of playing with cats, look for another mouse – a sensitive woman – to share your feelings with.

Best of luck!
