Relationships aren't bulletproof. Even couples who have been together for a long time have experienced some sort of problem or conflict that came about because one of the parties involved succumbed to his or her insecurities. Oftentimes, it may seem as if men do not have insecurities, but this is simply because women are socialized to be more vocal about their relationship insecurities than men are. Most of the time, you’ll only hear a man bemoaning his dilemma in front of his buddies, rather than to his partner.
This doesn’t mean women need to play the guessing game when it comes to what bothers men. To help you out, here are the common insecurities men feel when they are in relationships. Most of these feelings surface during the early part of the love story.
