Be A Better Man, Be A Better Partner

"I'm a Nice Guy, the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet. Why doesn't she want me?"

All of the following links address an array of questions that pertain to men changing their behavior with a goal of improving how they are perceived by their partners and themselves.

If you are in a sex starved relationship, if you can't understand why your woman is pulling away despite the fact that you hold her up on a pedestal and do everything in your power to please her and make her happy, then odds are that you will either see yourself and your relationship in these threads, or you will find information that will be useful in attempting to recover it.

While recognizing that there are any number of ways that our relationships fail, these particular topics are geared towards recovering a sense of health and balance within ourselves and our failing marriages and relationships.

Feel free to recommend other appropriate threads and we can add them to the list.

None of the information here is intended to address significant emotional disorders, such as anxiety, depression, addiction or other mental illness. Please seek professional help if you suspect that any of these are a factor in your relationship.

re: Be A Better Man, Be A Better Partner

This sticky was created from the idea (started here: Stickies?) that we should sticky some common threads on certain topics that get brought up frequently by new members at TAM.

Of course, no two situations are exactly the same, and neither are the possible solutions. We also do not wish to stereotype either sex or any "type of person." The purpose is to gather common themes that get brought up so that the information is easier for new members to find.

For more sticky thread suggestions, please post on the following thread: Stickies?
