There's definitely a difference between being occasionally insecure and being an insecure person. An overly insecure man can easily start to control his partner's actions, restrict her freedom, and become abusive. Here are 8 signs of male insecurity that turn women off.
1. He avoids eye contact
An insecure man has difficulty maintaining eye contact with anyone. An insecure man may not feel comfortable looking people in the eyes because of the fear that his insecurities may be detected.
2. He gets jealous
An insecure man gets jealous when a woman spends even a little time with her friends, including her female friends. He doesn't like when she meets co-workers after work.
3. He falls in love way too soon
An insecure man tends to confuse his unhealthy attachment as love. It takes time to get to know someone enough to love them. He tells a woman that he loves her way too soon in the relationship.
4. He's always seeking validation
Men in a healthy emotional state do not need their partner's validation at every step. However, an insecure man always seeks validation - usually because of the fact that he has low self-esteem.
5. He constantly checks her social media
An insecure guy watches everything a woman posts on social media. And the reason behind it is the fact that he wants to know her every move.
6. He demands to know everything
An insecure man demands to know everything about a woman's life and her days. Of course, we all have personal thoughts and secrets that are not meant to be shared. But, in the case of an insecure partner, nothing is private and everything must be shared at any cost.
7. He argues over late replies and missed calls
An insecure man finds it an insult if a woman doesn't reply to his texts or return to his calls in a timely manner. He fails to understand that she has other things to do as well, and she has other responsibilities. He does not acknowledge that she has a life that exists outside of the relationship.
8. He's always threatening to break up
Whenever there's a disagreement with an insecure man, he threatens to leave or break up. Normally, people would talk it out, and see how to fix the situation. Instead, he goes right to the extreme. This is because he's insecure and manipulative. He wants to be begged to stay, and it's all because of his weak ego.
