Playing Cool

When do we let our guard down and say how we feel and what we want?

Over time some women have adopted a “male” approach to relationships as a means of adapting. These women play it cool with men (even the one’s they really like and want). As a defense mechanism against hurt, women have morphed into nonchalant robot versions of themselves. However if both parties are playing it cool, how is true intimacy born, let alone grow?

This attitude that we’ve adopted is in part contributing to the superficial relationships that many of us are trying to avoid. When you mask the truth (even if it is to avoid hurt), you are hiding what you truly feel and essentially who you are. If men and women are both seeking love, how do we reach that goal if we spend most of our effort running away from it?
