I have seen very few "doers" here and not a single one who needed to tone down his approach. Most of them need to turn up the volume a bit.

What is the real problem? scratchchin I'm thinking there are thousands of men who live their lives paralyzed with the fear that "she'll get mad". eyepopping

Phooey on that, let her get mad if she likes, then you know she has a short fuse and you move on...or not.

My main question was whether, in addition to the active, there was an aspect of human presence that was a requirement for social relationships.

Thank you, John, NOW I understandYes, absolutelyso, in other words, men require the presence of the woman to "read" her and to then be genuinely "moved" in order to receive deeper meaningand communicate in a way that women desire?

Do I have that right, John???

If so, I certainly agree.
Having taught in an all male environment for a number of years, and after raising 5 young men to adulthoodand on to marriage for several of themI DO agree based on this small experiential samplingguys seemed to pick up gals intuitive, deeper conversational levels in person. Presence quadruples the comprehension levels of communication. Hope I am on target, here? Help?

Just remember that if you spend too much time in the tunnel of loaves, media01.stockfood.com , it will expand something, but not your chances to ever reach the tunnel of love. mischievous

I was surprised that the abbreviation, "PSD", can stand for so how many different things, en.wikipedia.org , none of which are Passive Side Deficiency (yet?). smile

So, it is in a man's best interest to be passive so as not to be passed by as long as that passivity is none too pervasive as to cause the comatose state often attributed to one hand on a beer and the other on the remote? Ok then, carry on.

Hi Kathy,

I appreciate your thoughts, I think ,maybe. mischievous

My guess is that a lot of men, maybe me included, lack the ability to have that moment of passivity that allows a woman's real message, feelings and personal presence to enter him in a way that reaches him at any deep level. Although a lot of men don't have any awareness of this need for a kind of passivity at certain times, I'd guess that a lot of them are aware of the discomfort and awkwardness that they have when a woman is trying to reach them and they don't know how to respond and so they pull away from her attempts to enter. Ya, a beer and reaching for the remote might fool her; that is, keep her from finding out that we're at a loss regarding what to do.

John
