11 Things Guys Are TOTALLY Insecure About

Men have a tendency of acting macho and overconfident, even if they aren’t exactly the type of guy who should be confident. Those who are insecure tend to show it by lashing out in anger, being aggressive, and just being jerks.

Most of the time, women will tell you that the one thing guys are most insecure about is their ability to keep women interested in them. This is true, but they’re insecure of a lot more than just that.

Here are some things guys are insecure about on a daily basis, but never admit to women that they’re concerned.

1. They worry about actually being able to please women, even in a non-sexual way.

Though I have my doubts, my guy friends regularly insist that this is a primary concern of guys. They want to know that they can make a woman happy. For some, it’s almost their idealized purpose in life. So yes, they want to know that they are good husbands and boyfriends as well as good lovers.

2. Men also really worry about their looks.

You think girls are bad about looks? Well, yeah, we can be, but so are guys. I’ve had many guy friends who have begged me for style tips, hair tips, and even borrowed makeup from me in an effort to impress others with their looks.

3. Their ability to make money is a huge issue.

Did you know that most men identify their masculinity by how well they could provide for a woman or themselves? It’s true. For them, their ability to make money is tantamount to being a man. This is why so many guys want their wives to be stay-at-home moms, and why so many guys are uncomfortable about having a girlfriend that out-earns them.

4. Guys are also absolutely insecure about their personalities.

If you take a look at a lot of self-help books for guys, you’ll notice how many guides they have that involve improving their personalities. This is because they really worry that they’re not as fun or interesting as they think they are.
