Men have always been expected to be brave in order to defend their loved ones and those who cannot do this are going to be branded a coward. However, cowardice in the modern day takes another meaning than it was in the past. Men are not expected to fight with their enemies in order to prove their worth.
For example, in today’s era, a man who cannot commit to romantic relationship could be branded coward, too. Men should not expect their women to simply linger around for them while they flounder, continuing to dump and un-dump women as they patiently wait for men to figure it all out.
Men should not think they could just keep calling all the shots and expect women to go along as the cool girl, agreeing to whatever men suggested because they are admittedly low-maintenance.
Signs Your Man Suffers from Cowardice
- Being Dishonest
A coward man will never be honest about anything, especially when he is confronted. He would rather dance around the truth and go round in circles than being straight forward and honest. He will always try to change the subject when you bring up some triggering questions that make him highly uncomfortable.
- Being Calculative
A coward man is always self-conscious of all his actions and then second guesses everything he does in life. Besides, try to observe every single move he makes. If it is calculated and he constantly worries about who is monitoring him and what others think about his actions, then he is no doubt a coward.
For example, on daily basis, he will always dress in a way that makes him feel accepted and then do everything based on society’s standard. Such a man will never speak his mind or express his opinion in fear of how he will be judged by others.
