Why Can't Men Take Constructive Criticism From The Woman They Love?

Is it possible? Men and their BIG egos. Ladies lets talk?

Okay Ladies- I had to come back and make some changes to the discussion, starting with the,"Discussion Title". Can Men take constructive criticism?

LOL...I believe the trick to that is to always tell them they are, what you want them to be. and then always let them think it was their idea..
I've tried this and yes it works. So funny that you should mention this.

Evangelia, I believe that you are right. Men cannot take criticism from the women that love them. I wonder does it seem (to them) that we are putting them down and making them feel less of a man? I'm curious......I will be sure to read the suggested article. Thanks
I changed the discussion title. Thanks Evangelia Biddy.
I think it has a lot to do with the relationship a man has with his mother. The more domineering the mother the less chance you will get a word in edgewise. I believe we have to do it in such a manner as to almost dumb down. Slowly and with such syrup you might want to throw up seriously. Men seem to want to be handled with kid gloves. Everything is an attack on their manhood. So I proceed with the utmost caution, choose my words carefully and the timing must be perfect.
I just gott married over a year ago and I STILL don't understand why men don't take criticism good. I think it is a ego thing with them. I found my self having to say things in a way he can feel he is right lol
This is a loaded question. I don't think accepting constructive criticism is necessarily a topic just pertaining to men. Women too have a hard time taking constructive criticism. The key is..... it depends on how the criticism is given. Its your tone, your demeanor and your real intent. Usually if you come correctly to someone whether male or female, your criticism will be more readily accepted.

I really love this one. That is exactly what I am always trying to do but unfortunately it does not work always. I guess I have to improve this.
Besides this I am of the opinion that it is very difficult for men to accept constructive criticism from women they love. I really have no idea why this is the case because men are able to take criticism from everyone except from the women they love.
