Men are sensitive beings who require just as much validation and attention as women. They are just as emotional as women but show their emotions differently than woman. So the first step in understanding the male ego is knowing it can be wounded and become frail at any time. Sometimes in order to appease the male and his ego you have to avoid damaging comments that delve into his masculinity or the ability to provide for his family. These damaging comments may include; insults to his profession, his performance in the bedroom, undercut his leadership skills or offend his qualifications.
At the same time you shouldn’t walk on eggshells in order to avoid the sensitivity of the male ego either. The biggest blow to a man’s ego is rejection, some men don’t know how to handle, embrace or deal with being rejected. And God forbid his arrogance is coupled in with this rejection, these are dangerous twins that can destroy the man’s self-esteem.
