100: Why Men Abandon Women and Relationships

Why Men Abandon Women and RelationshipsHow can men just walk away from a relationship?


Do they lack feelings? Did they ever care?


Those are just a few of the questions that will be answered today.


It’s no secret that a lot of women have come to believe that men completely lack emotions.


I honestly can’t knock them, especially when you consider the way some men behave nowadays.


I firmly believe that men need to be held accountable for their actions (as do women).


Therefore, I felt it was time to finally address one of the biggest elephants in the room with men and women…


The reason why men abandon women and relationships.


Far too many men have been adopting what I like to term “The Hollow Man” approach.


They are in a woman’s life one day and completely gone the next.


That type of behavior is unacceptable and needs to stop.


Now don’t think I’m trying to sound holier-than-thou. I’m far from perfect and I know it.


In fact, I’ve pulled a Hollow Man before. I’m not proud of it, but it’s the truth.


I’m not afraid to be open and honest about my flaws, faults and this pressing issue.


Thankfully, my latest guest on the podcast, Cornelius Lindsey, is a man of honor, integrity and transparency too.


We both recently discussed, at length, why men find the need to abandon women and how they can seemingly leave a relationship so easily and without even telling a woman why.


This is a discussion that you are going to enjoy and learn so much from. Enjoy!
