And, you know what, Mandy Kay. There men do think more like women. It depends on their chemistry and if they have been predominately raised by woman/women. My son talks about his feelings and really shares a lot that most men wouldn't dream of saying (he is in his 30s). But, his wife is very controlling b/c she is very insecure and won't allow him his space. He feels she has strangled the love out of him.

Yes, totally aware of this and how important it is to encourage these type of guys to have "man" time. I recently re-read the original M/V along with a few other M/V books.

Unfortunate for your son.

How long is a healthy amount of time to "leave a man alone"?

Because I did it for months at a time in my last relationship. Was that enough time? I'm being serious here. When do women say "enough is enough"?

I totally get caving and rubberbanding and how important it is to just let men "be" and and have their space. However, where do we draw the line on bad behavior?

More of a philosophical discussion as it's not an issue in my relationship.

What is the point of contacting a man who has not contacted you?

He is not going to come back. He is not going to say much because men fear
having an hysterical woman begging to know what she has done wrong on the other
end of the phone line.

It won't make you feel one bit better to contact him. It is not
"bad behavior." Do you think anybody would feel one bit better to have a man say,
"You know I am ending things because you have a strange laugh and cellulite on you neck
with saggy boobs that really turn me off. You also have a stupid laugh and really have
no understanding of the arts?"

When a men does not call, he has sent the message in the kindest possible way
sometimes.
