It can be hard to break a man's tough exterior to establish a true emotional connection.
A FitPerez reader named Jen is looking to do just that, but isn't sure of the best way to make a man comfortable enough to open up around her. For advice, she wrote to relationship expert Dr. Karen Stewart, asking:
Thanks for helping! What are best ways to grow and build an emotional connection with a man? Beer? Food?
According to Dr. Karen:
"Beer and food" can be a great start to connect with your guy. Men are much more comfortable having conversations with their partners when there are "distractions" between them (food and drinks). Use your meal times to ask him questions that you have been thinking about but start slow!
For example: where would you like to travel, fun things he likes to do, his favorite sports/pastime activities, etc. If you start slow and work into more intimate topics, you will both feel more comfortable being more open and vulnerable.
