Men like sex and they are under the illusion that a good relationship is one that they are superior to anyone else in bed. If only that were true it would be so easy. Alas it is not the case. She has a set of priorities that are totally different than what he expects and hopes for. She is not interested in the bedroom until he proves himself in other duties around the house.
Quote “There is one personality trait that consistently predicts relationship satisfaction, and it can be measured with a few simple questions. On a scale of 1 (not at all) to 5 (very much), to what extent do you…
- a) pay attention to detail?
b) get chores done straightaway?
c) like order?
d) follow a schedule?
e) ensure that you are always well-prepared?
The personality trait that most reliably predicts relationship satisfaction is not a wicked sense of humour or a fondness for grand romantic gestures, but conscientiousness. If you scored 21-25 you are very conscientious, 16-20 somewhat conscientious, and 15 or less (or you didn’t finish the test) not particularly conscientious.”
Such a list may be devastating to many men. It might make the statistic that one out of every two marriages fails and that 75% of all divorces are initiated by the woman not surprising. Many men have made assumptions that applied to their parents or grandparents in the 1950’s. However the world has changed. It has been convenient to ignore the new reality. So going back to the quiz : what has to change to improve your marks? What would that look like? And would that be for you?
“Seek and you shall find!!”
