There are two main reasons men hide their feelings. These reasons are discussed in this article, so get ready for an exciting adventure inside your guy’s mind!
Men are biologically preprogrammed to hide their emotions and deal with them alone.
Back in the day of the caveman, men were the hunters; women were the gatherers.
They quietly hid in the bushes or behind the rock in order to successfully trap and kill an animal. When the tribe went on a hunt, the men hid and kept quiet. They knew that the survival of the tribe depended on how quiet they were while waiting for their prey to show up.
Women, on the other hand, had to talk while doing the gathering. They kept the conversation flowing to ensure they knew if one of them suddenly got in trouble, was attacked by a wild animal or needed help.
Nowadays men still work silently most of the time, unless they are in a meeting where they need to discuss some specific issues or projects. Once a man gets assigned a project he will work silently unless he needs to communicate with other men in the course of his assignment.
Working on a job assignment equates to solving a problem. Similarly, when a man has a problem he will shut down, go to his hiding place and think about the possible solutions.
When he shuts down, the best thing you can do is to give him his space. Once the problem is solved, he’ll come out of his hiding place and everything will be back to normal.
Men are raised since their early childhood that to be a real man one has to face his issues silently. They want to be the strong, silent type; not a cry baby.
Talking about his emotions is considered weak and pathetic.
The only time a man feels it is save to open up and share his emotions is when he is alone with his woman whom he trusts.
