How to Be a Sensitive Dude

Couple Communicating

The quickest way to a woman’s heart (and into her pants!) is by being sensitive. BUT wait… women don’t want a mushy girl-guy, we still want our man to be a dude, that is, masculine. Yes, we want it all. It’s a tricky balance, because if you act too sensitive, you’ll fall into the friend zone where sex just ain’t gonna happen.

For some men, being sensitive comes naturally. These men never seem to have trouble landing the ladies. For others, it takes more of an effort. With enough practice though, it can become a natural part of your relationship repertoire.

So, can you be sensitive and still keep your dude cred? Of course!

Be Attentive
Women like to talk – to work things out, bitch and moan, or talk about the future. What a sensitive dude does is give her the floor and listen. The good news is you don’t have to say a whole lot. As long as a woman knows you’re paying attention and not just uh-huhing while the game is on, you’ll score points in the sensitivity department. If she wants more than a sounding board, ask questions and give advice.

Offer Kindness
Being sensitive and considerate to others in front of a woman is a huge turn on. Give an older lady your seat on the bus, offer to drive a friend home, or volunteer once a week. A woman will take these gestures the same way as if you’d done them for her. Swoon swoon.

Read the Signs
Women sometimes expect a man to know how and what they’re feeling. I know this can be frustrating, but you don’t have to be a mind reader, you just have to listen and observe her body language to know how she’s doing. You can ask, too!

Surprise Surprise
Small unexpected gifts or actions are great ways to show your sensitivity. This tells her you’re thinking about her even when you’re apart. It’s these little things that will make a woman focus her attention on you and not the thoughtless dude she went out with last week.

Open Up
When a man talks about his own struggles, it gives a woman a chance to show her nurturing soft side. Being strong and supportive for her is important, but we want to return the favor and know our guy is not infallible. Of course, don’t make shit up – be real and know that a man sharing is super sexy.

Okay, dudes, there you have it… a few different ways to bring sensitivity into a relationship. Does this behavior come naturally, or do you have to work on it?
