Almost every woman has uttered, "He just doesn't get it " in frustration when her partner drives her crazy -- or to tears. Now this dramatically different relationship guide reveals the hidden reasons why. He Just Doesn't Get It offers simple solutions to the problems women have with the infuriating, confusing, difficult -- and absolutely wonderful -- guys they love, including:
"Why are men so selfish?" "How can they be so oblivious?" "Are men intimacy-impaired?" "Will he ever grow up?" "Will he ever understand me and love me in the way I long to be loved?"
Nationally known relationship counselor Ellen Sue Stern has worked with thousands of women who have asked the exact same questions about their boyfriends or husbands -- regardless of their age, background, or length of time in a relationship.
Why is it that men don't make the same effort women do to please their mate, improve intimacy, or create a more satisfying union?
Focusing on fifteen of the most common relationship problems, Ellen Sue Stern supplies the answers -- and the unseen motivations underlying men's behavior -- as if she's been there herself (she has ). She will astonish you with her on-target descriptions of how you react to his behavior -- and how you unwittingly may be making things worse. With specific advice on what to do when he takes you for granted, accuses you of acting like his mother, or proclaims, "I need more space," she shows you how to turn things around immediately, even if "He just doesn't get it " With counsel that's exciting, practical, and best of all, effective, Ellen Sue Stern gives you the power to dramatically improve your relationship -- and feel better about yourself while you're at it.
