9780006382522: What Do Women Want?

'This book highlights the fact that women are brought up to understand men's emotional needs but men are not brought up to understand women's' WOMAN Many women today feel that they pour love, commitment and understanding into their relationships, but that it is not returned in kind. He seems secure and independent, she feels insecure and clingy. The truth is that men and women are both dependent. But his needs are catered to so well -- first by his mother, then by his girlfriend or wife -- that he doesn't know he has them, while her needs for closeness and tenderness are constantly rebuffed as he retreats from intimacy. Susie Orbach and Luise Eichenbaum set out to explore this crisis in the relationships of men and women. They explain how men have learned to 'manage' their dependency needs very differently to women, and why women feel dependent and hungry for love. Finally they show why dependency on both sides is the essential core of any successful relationship.
