Getting a guy to talk about his feelings has been a mystery for centuries. Men just aren’t as verbal as women and it’s tough to get them to crack. But, there are easy tricks to get their emotions flowing. Try our 5 ways to start the conversation you always wanted.
1. “Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think you feel like…”
Giving him the option to correct you is a great way for him to let down his guard. He’ll be more likely to explain how he feels (or listen to what you have to say) when he knows you won’t fire back at him.
Let’s face it, any discussion over booze is less intimidating. Especially after drink number three.
3. “Tell me about the time your cousin…”
What guy doesn’t love talking about his favorite relative? Getting him into his happy place is the first step. After that, it’s a walk in the park. You win.
4. “I’m going to watch [insert his favorite TV show] on the couch. Care to join me?”
Again, the goal is to get him calm, relaxed and in a good mood. Just don’t try this one after a big fight or argument. Not being obvious is key.
