Men Seek Emotional Closeness More Than Women!
Dr. Raymond, a relationship expert, exposes the secret that 9 out of 10 calls to the therapist’s office come from men who crave emotional connection with their partners, busting the myth that women seek this kind of intimacy more than men.
The book tells the story of Rick and Christy’s stormy relationship, tracking their lives from childhood before they come together, then taking us into Rick’s private sessions with Dr. Raymond after Christy storm out of the office, refusing counseling. But Rick persists, trying desperately to break through Christy’s impenetrable emotional wall that blocks him at every turn.
As Rick recounts his everyday frustrations, he learns the many subtle ways in which Christy keeps him at bay because she’s terrified of emotional intimacy. But for each way she blocks him, Dr. Raymond gives Rick a simple strategy that enables Christy to let her guard down so that he can work his way into her emotional space. Elated when he connects with his wife and heartbroken when she pushes him away, Rick persists with Dr. Raymond’s 10-point plan, determined not to give up on his marriage like his parents did, causing their union to end in divorce.
Now You Want Me, Now You Don’t! offers those like Christy who long for emotional intimacy but are too afraid to allow it, and their partners like Rick, who crave closeness but are continually pushed away, 10 proven methods that melt the walls of fear and anger that block emotional intimacy. Couples struggling to ease the tension that produces lonely chasms between them can use this handbook of winning strategies that Dr. Raymond shared with Rick to make their romantic relationship more equal, intimate and harmonious.
