Sometimes we all need to be reminded of something we already know - like to go to bed at a reasonable hour, or to say no to that last shot of tequila.Men and women really do have differences beyond our anatomy, which we all know (of course) but often forget (when our emotions are involved).Here are five things to remind yourself about men to navigate your single life with more ease: #1 Men Fear Rejection Just As Much As Women When it comes to dating, it is easy for women to think the possibility of being rejected is something that men are used to, and therefore unafraid of. Some of the men I've spoken to about rejection insist men fear rejection even more than women do.When it comes to dating, they might be used to it, but that doesn't make it any easier.The problem, though, is that so many men get so caught up on wanting to impress a girl that the basics of the date are lost.They may model their behavior on what they see on TV, in movies, what they read in books and so on.The male fear of rejection spans from being turned down for a first date to having their hearts broken in a long-term relationship.

Professor Gary Cooper said, “It tends to be a powerful experience and the memory sticks with us as a reminder of more carefree, uninhibited days.” He also pointed out, “These people, particularly men, who pine after their first love are probably doing so because they’re unhappy about something in their current relationship but are afraid to confront it.
It is escapism and avoidance and it’s not healthy.” The power of an early obsession to disrupt later relationships and the danger of barely suppressed memories is at the core of 45 Years: Andrew Haigh’s acclaimed new film, released this week.
Some years ago, I set out to commission six authors to write a short account of their first experience of falling in love and the effect it had had on their lives.

You can even text your special someone something sweet before you get together for date night after work.
It would definitely help to start a date with a smiling woman with you.
Maybe she was simply a great person, and the fact that things didn’t work out took its toll on him.
All those issues have caused him to be very closed off and afraid of taking your relationship a step further, and it’s breaking your heart because you believe there’s something really special about this guy.
