Show Notes

Imagine your wife writing down a list of what she wants in a husband. Would she write:

I really want a man who:

-Is afraid to tell me what he’s thinking and feeling

-Bottles up his emotions until they explode

-Is passive aggressive

-Won’t ask for what he wants from me because he’s worried I might say no

-Tries to make me happy while secretly becoming resentful

-Won’t do what he believes is right because he thinks I won’t agree

-Won’t have important discussions because he’s afraid of my emotional response

Of course not. These are all extremely unattractive qualities. They are cowardly. They are based in fear.

And yet, many men do these exact things and hope their wives will be attracted to them.

At the end of the day, your wife is attracted to a man who is strong and courageous. Being courageous requires that you do things that you are afraid to do.

The definition of courage is: The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery.

Sharing what you actually think and feel with your wife is scary. Do it anyway.

Asking for what you want it scary. Your wife might say no. It exposes you mentally and emotionally. Do it anyway.

*Caveat. Don’t go straight to asking for more sex. You need to build trust and mental and emotional intimacy first for her to actually WANT to have sex with you.

Doing what you believe is right, even when your wife disagrees, is scary. Do it anyway.

Choosing courage over cowardice is hard. Do it anyway. You’ll feel stronger for it. And, you’ll be far more attractive to your wife.
