Insecurity & Fear of Rejection in relationship

How to Know if a Woman Loves You: Signs that She Loves You
Love can be a game of hide and seek. If everything is as simple as feeling something and saying it out loud, then the world will be better off. Often this kind of honesty cannot be done in reality as people live in fear, insecurity and pride. We cannot tell or show how we feel because we fear rejection. We will only show our feelings when we are sure that our feelings will be reciprocated. When we are not sure, we will just keep it a secret rather than run the risk of getting hurt. (1) If a woman loves you she has the willingness to sacrifice. (2) Some women may not say much but they worry for the safety of the people they love.

Women fear of desertion or infidelity when man is too good
Success may be the kiss of death for men who hope to get hitched, psychologists say. When it comes to marriage material, women are wary of good-looking high-fliers, and are drawn to less successful men. To test the influence of a man's status on his marriage potential, a team created personal ads, accompanied by pictures of men ranked as either unattractive, moderately attractive or very attractive. The adverts included common phrases from lonely hearts columns. While better looking men fared better than uglier ones, the most successful and handsome men did not come out tops - women ranked them as low as the poorest men.

Insanely jealous: The One turns fearless females into insecure wets
I've become insanely jealous of my partner, despite the fact that he has never given me any reason to be. I've become anxious when he talks to other women. I'm always checking up on him if he sits next to an attractive woman or laughs at female friends' jokes. Things overheated when I went through his phone while he was in the shower and found texts from one female friend. They were innocent but I just flipped and screamed at him. -- Checking your partner's phone for messages is never a signal of a healthy state of mind. I have witnessed fearless females turn into insecure wets when they find themselves hitched up to the man they've decided is The One.

Why We Lie - Because our self-esteem is threatened
We all lie, all the time. It causes problems, to say the least. So why do we do it? "It's tied in with self-esteem," says psychologist Robert Feldman. "We find that as soon as people feel that their self-esteem is threatened, they immediately begin to lie at higher levels." Not all lies are harmful. In fact, sometimes lying is the best approach for protecting privacy and ourselves and others from malice. Some deception, such as boasting and lies in the name of tact and politeness, can be classified as less than serious. But bald-faced lies, are harmful, as they corrode trust and intimacy—the glue of society.

Does the Fear of Rejection Control Your Life?
Jay wanted to get married and have children, yet the relationship seemed to elude him. When I first met Jay, he was an attractive and successful businessman. It wasn`t that women weren`t attracted to him. He had no trouble having first dates. But it never went anywhere. Jay was baffled. -- The few times in sessions when you have forgotten to watch what you are saying, you are incredible: funny and interesting. If you were to really get to appreciate who you really are, you would stop worrying about rejection! You would know that you are just fine, and that if someone rejects you, it`s more about them than it is about you.

8 Ways To Keep The Upper Hand With Women
They can catapult us into instant, spontaneous lust, and, at the same time, into a knee-buckling fear of rejection. The very thought of a ripe, firm body can tyrannize our thoughts, leaving us sweaty and panting and out of control. As men, we need to learn to turn the tables on this kind of female domination; to regain the upper hand in our interaction with the opposite sex. So how do we do this? (1) Wussy not - Desperation stinks, and women can sniff out insecurity. So even if you're Brad Pitt's better-looking brother, you still need to exude tons of confidence if you want to attract the ladies.

8 Types Of Guys Women Avoid - Nro 1: The Needy Guy

(1) The Needy Guy - He is overly emotional and shares all his feelings with her right away.

Always feeling insecurity over your love relationship?
I should believe that you are having such thoughts because you really cherish this relationship? But perhaps cherishing it just a bit too much? How would you feel if things were the other way round? Would you like it if your partner were to doubt your love for them instead? Trust between partners is one of the key criteria to a happy and fulfilling relationship. Remember, love is always a two-way communication. It takes two, a happy you and a happy him or her to complete the equation.

Are You Relationship Codependent?
In a relationship between two emotionally healthy adults, the roles of giving and receiving help are balanced. Both people offer help and receive help from each other in approximately equal amounts. However, there are some people who always take on the role of being the helper, no matter what relationship they are in.

Slaves to love - Selfish lover or hopeless abstainer
Selfish lover or hopeless abstainer? Our sex lives mirror the treatment we receive as a child. Are you a Clinger or an Avoidant. A robust series of studies done in the past decade prove that a key factor is how secure we are in our pattern of relationships. About half of adults have insecure ones and this strongly predicts both sexual behaviour and motives.

Insecurity - Low self-esteemed sabotage their own relationships
Most people seek a soul mate to love them unconditionally. But those who need such acceptance most -- the terminally insecure -- often sabotage their own chances at bliss. When we're feeling low, we often regain confidence through a mate's love and support. Unfortunately people who suffer from low self-esteem assume that their loved ones notice their glaring faults more than their redeeming virtues.
