So many men believe the myth that if they always do the right thing and put other people’s needs ahead of their own, they’ll be loved and their lives will be magically problem-free. Unfortunately, that approach rarely works out. Those men often find themselves feeling bitter, neglected, emotionally and sexually unfulfilled in relationships—or worse, in the “friend zone.”
My guest today, Dr. Robert Glover, calls this tragic condition “Nice Guy Syndrome.” In this episode, Dr. Glover and I talk about how to recognize the signs of Nice Guy Syndrome in yourself, why you need to re-connect with your own needs and boundaries, the best ways to create new vitality in your relationships, and much more.
