Isn’t it odd that every psychological article you see on the net has pictures mostly of women in them? Now is everything only about women and their fears, there are many instances in relationships when the woman is the strong one and the drama queen is the male, this isn’t to undermine men but to put things in perspective, as women have their fears, so do men too. Throughout the ages, society has fixed a stereotype on the male as the embodiment of strength without the remote possibility of harboring issues, well, that’s simply not true and here are the 15 things that worry most men.
1How their body looks
Women from young are made to feel conscious about their figures and to look after their bodies through diets and healthier lifestyles and generally speaking men don’t usually face such issues but it doesn’t mean we men aren’t concerned about our bodies. Men are also conscious of their bodies and often make comparisons with the well-toned models they see in men magazines. This is why men do visit gyms, get their chest waxed and tend to tuck their tummies in when a woman is around. Perhaps a man’s biggest fear is that damn protruding belly which just won’t go away.

Let’s face it. Money makes the world go round and men often worry about money. Being projected with the thought that they are the family breadwinner, any responsible man will always worry about his financial situation even if he doesn’t have a family. While care, love, and attention are important for a woman, a man’s subconscious way of thought will always be money to provide for his woman.

Which man does not worry about his height if he considers himself short? The ideal features of a man are “being tall”. From time immemorial, that phrase of an ideal woman’s dream man in romance novels is that tall dark handsome stranger.” Now how does it sound when you say “short dark and handsome”? Doesn’t quite match does it?? Refute this or not but size matters to a man.

4He regards other men as a threat
Men can be jealous, it’s a common trait even though it may not be as obvious as a woman’s but it can be equally fierce. Men see other men in their partner’s lives as a potential threat. It is an affront to their own self-esteem and though your partner won’t flinch or show signs he is anxious when you speak to him about a male colleague, inside, the comparisons are already going on. You’ll have to do your best to show him he’s NO 1 in your life.

5Poor experience in relationships
Seriously speaking men are afraid of projecting themselves as macho figures because it makes them appear as they are the ideal man with experience in relationships. In truth, a man is just as afraid of messing up in a relationship as women are. Insecurity, the fear of saying or doing the wrong things can plague a man when he has a new girlfriend until late at night. It is caring, understand and most of all compromise that makes a relationship safe keep each other confident.
