What Makes A Man Emotionally Attached To A Woman?

Let’s get one thing straight:

Men have emotions too.

We may not like to display our feelings very often but those feelings exist.

The feelings that create lasting bonds between a man and woman are complicated.

But what are these feelings?

What makes a man emotionally attached to a woman?

Once a man is hooked on a woman, there’s really no turning back. That’s nothing but good news to women everywhere, especially those looking to find a man to spend their life with.

But how do you achieve this when men aren’t exactly forthcoming with their emotions?

The Role Of Nature


First things first, we need to look at the role of mother nature.

Differences between the sexes exist, and this is plain for everybody to see. We’ve been designed to complement one another, and a degree of opposites attract is in play at all times.

By being feminine around your man, you invoke primal feelings in him. He notices and feels the masculinity in himself, and it makes him feel strong.

Now, this doesn’t mean you have to be the fainting damsel all the time. It just means that you have to behave in a way that shows your womanly side to him.

It could be what you wear, how you speak, how you eat, what you drink – the ways of accentuating your sex differences are varied and it’s up to you to decide how to make them your own.

Don’t underestimate the power of your natural femininity. Healthy men crave natural women. 

Understand The Male Mindset


Men have a deep desire to be understood. The feeling that the woman in your life gets you is what makes a man emotionally attached to a woman.

If you can listen to him, sympathetically and without interrupting, he will open up to you in ways he’ll never intend.

Men want to do good, in general. They don’t want their positive intentions to be misconstrued.

They want their woman to be on their side, not in competition with them.

But don’t get me wrong: we’re not looking for pushovers.

We want your judgment and perspective too. But delivered in a way that respects our ideas and predicament.

Men put up emotional walls if they feel the woman in their life is unwilling to see where they’re coming from.

We feel used and lonely. Definitely not recommended if you want to know what makes a man emotionally attached to a woman. 

Inspire Confidence In Him


The old saying goes, behind every great man is a great woman.

I’m not sure where this came from but there’s got to be a grain of truth in it.

I don’t know if women realize the true potential of how they can influence the man in their life to achieve great things.

Give him your vote of confidence and watch how he succeeds, all with the knowledge that it was you behind him.

He’ll develop a sense of loyalty that will cement the emotional bonds in your relationship forever. It is truly one of the best way to make him fall in love with you.

The worst thing you can do is to sow seeds of self-doubt in him. This will come back to hurt you.

By adopting a positive mindset, you can lead in times of his weakness, until he regains his strength.

By being this kind of woman, you are showing your true value to your man. Men never forget this and their emotional ties grow stronger each time.

Give Him Space


Sometimes we need the woman in our life to help us with our problems. But often we need to have some space to figure our own issues out.

We also need time with our male friends. They’re often the ones who help to put perspective on the difficulties we’re experiencing.

By showing him that you are happy to give him what he needs, he will be grateful for your attitude.

Especially when it involves a period of temporary separation.

A sure way to sabotage your relationship is to isolate your man from the very things he needs in order to be himself.

Besides, absence makes the heart grow fonder, and time apart, whether an afternoon or a weekend, is a guaranteed way to give you both the space you need for yourselves.

If you can learn to sense when he is in need of a break, all the better. Sometimes we need to get away but other commitments get in our way.

Tell him you’ll take care of it, and suggest he go meet his friends for the evening.

Connect With Him Intimately


This should be at the top of your list if you want to know what makes a man emotionally attached to a woman.

Learn to communicate with him in a way that no other woman can. Discover his sexual triggers and how to push his buttons so that he becomes obsessed with you.

This won’t happen overnight, but you must discover the art of talking dirty to your man if you want to make him emotionally attached to you.

Not only attached but addicted.

Talking dirty doesn’t mean that you transform yourself from a lady into a common slut.

It means that you use the power of your words to captivate and control the largest sex organ of your man: his brain.

This takes a bit of getting used to, but that’s why you learn to start slow.

It’s by harnessing your sexual energy that you create a strong emotional connection between you and your man.

And I can tell you from personal experience that there is nothing like a woman who knows how to connect with you sexually.

But I don’t mean just the physical side of sex. I’m talking about the psychological side: the way she understands and plays on my fantasies.

I truly am her plaything when I’m under her spell, and the emotional bond is stronger than ever.

Engage in His Interests

This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to do everything he does.

That might actually be more annoying than it is helpful in this case.

What it means is to make the things that are important to him important to you.

Even if men don’t show you just how passionate they are about something, you can tell. Figure out what he loves and what makes him happier than anything else and make it important to you.

He might love basketball more than you can understand. And while it might not seem that big of a deal to you, making an effort to see his games and cheer him on will forge a deeper connection than you can imagine.

He’ll start associating you with something he loves intensely and that’ll connect you to a more emotional side of him.

So even though you might not understand why he loves his hobbies so much, make an effort to be there.

It’ll make him more emotionally attached to you than you realize. 

Get Along With His Friends

A man’s friends mean a lot to him. Essentially, they’re like family.

We have a different kind of connection than women do with their friends and while both are deep, men connect differently.

If you don’t like his friends, it’ll be bad for you. He won’t be attached to you emotionally if you’re always nagging about how you don’t like the people he’s closest to.

It’s like an insult to him personally.

You don’t mean it that way, but that’s the way we take it.

If you don’t like our friends, we distance ourselves from in an emotional way. It might not be obvious at first, but that attachment will be lost.

If you really want him to become emotionally attached to you, find a way to be friends with his friends.

That doesn’t mean you need to go out of your way to hang out with them, but be friendly. 

Ask about their lives. Treat them as if they’re your friends and help your man spend more time with them.

Trust me.

He’ll love you more for it. 

Need Him

This is just who we are.

Men love to be needed. We want to feel like we’re adding to your life and giving you something you can’t get anywhere else.

We need you to need us in your life.

It’s simple, really.

Just have him do things for you. Even if you can open that jar by yourself, having your man do it for you will make him feel great about himself and he’ll feel more connected to you.

When he feels like he’s providing for you, he’ll become attached.

It’s like you’re someone he has to take care of.

That’s not a bad thing by any means. Men love to take care of others, as odd as that may seem.

We just love to do it in ways that make us feel like a man.

So focus on showing him that you need him in your life. Get him to do things for you that would be difficult for you otherwise.

Then watch him become emotionally attached to you.

Give Him a Safe Space to Let His Emotions Out

We’ve already established that men have emotions. We might try to hide them or keep them buried down deep, but we have them.

And as much as we might like to hide them, they have to come out eventually.

The more we can be ourselves and show how we feel around you, the more emotionally attached to you we’ll become.

That’s because you’ll be our safe space.

When we get emotional with you, it’s a big deal. We trust you.

That just adds to our emotional connection with you and the more we can do that, the deeper that connection will grow.

Once we’ve opened up and shown you every side of us, we’re hooked.

That means you can’t judge us for getting emotional or shut us down when we want to talk to you about something.

It’s hard enough to just ask you to listen, let alone being judged for it.

Appreciate Him

Men need to be appreciated just as much as women do.

We don’t make an effort to make you happy for no reason. We want you to realize all the work we put in and appreciate it.

The more you take advantage of what a man does for you, the further you’ll push him away.

It’s not just about saying thank you when he does something nice, either.

It’s about noticing the little things and that he’s putting himself out there to make you happy.

That’s a big deal and even though he’s doing it for you, he wants something in return. You don’t have to go overboard and thank him every time he does something nice.

But you do want to let him know that you see what he’s doing and you’re crazy about him for it.

Just going the extra mile in the bedroom and telling him he can do whatever he wants with you because he was so great earlier in the week is enough.

The more you appreciate him, the more he’ll want to keep doing those nice things for you. And through those things, he’ll grow to feel attached to you emotionally.
