The need to be admired is a primal need every woman in a heterosexual relationship should try to fulfill.
Much like a woman, a man needs to feel admired, only differently. He needs to be admired for his abilities, vision and uniqueness.
If you can’t look at the man you are with, with admiration, or tell him about his superpowers that you admire, leave him alone. You should be with someone you admire.
