Men are often less emotionally expressive than women, so they feel more comfortable connecting with their romantic partner through physical touch.A man chooses one woman over another woman, in part, because he feels that she is compatible with him in the affection department: She is someone who is physically affectionate; she touches him the way he likes to be touched; and she touches him with the frequency that he likes to be touched.Though there is no one sentence answer, there is an answer: Men choose one woman over another for several reasons, and they’re not necessarily ones you might expect.
Given the choice between two women he is equally attracted to, he will choose the one who is more compatible with him in other ways which I explore below.
Affection Compatibility In general, men love to be touched.
Because most men have their own parents and siblings whom they see at extended family gatherings, a man needs the woman he chooses to blend well with his existing family.
Image is important to men, so they also need to feel that the woman they choose is someone they’d be proud to introduce to their colleagues at work, whether those colleagues are fellow mechanics at an automobile repair shop or partners at a law firm.
In my practice as a clinical psychologist and relationship expert, I can tell you that I hear first-hand each day about the factors that turn on — and turn off — men and women as they date in search of the right romantic match.
