fall_in_loveOne of the biggest mistakes I see women make in dating and relationships is OVERFUNCTIONING.

There’s this common fear that if we don’t constantly DO things for a man – and take an active role in moving the relationship forward – he’s going to lose interest.

Almost all women want a masculine-energy man who can figure things out on his own, but they often get in their own way because they think they’re just being “helpful” – or they’re afraid they’re going to lose a man if they don’t constantly DO things in the relationship.

The opposite is actually true – overfunctioning actually repels masculine-energy men and causes their attraction for you to fade!

Overfunctioning looks like…

…always being the one to initiate contact with a man

…asking him out, doing all the planning and driving to him for dates, and paying on dates

…doing things in order to GET something from him

…playing “therapist” or “counselor” by helping him figure something out if he hasn’t asked for your help

…trying to “create” something in your relationship by constantly giving and doing things for him.

Overfuntioning can also manifest in more subtle ways as well. Here are some good questions to ask yourself:

How often do you try to “rescue” the conversation, or “entertain” a man?

How often are you offering unsolicited suggestions, or offering to help a man with something when he hasn’t asked?

Many women take on a lot of the masculine “doing” energy in the relationship – and then build up resentment around that without even realizing it.

Some women are afraid that if they stop overfunctioning they’ll lose their connection with a man and the relationship will “fizzle out” – but the opposite is actually true!

When you start overfunctioning and taking over some of the masculine role, you actually end up pushing men away on a very deep, unconscious level.

It’s shocking how many of us have gotten into this situation. It can persist to the point where it completely damages a relationship seemingly beyond repair – but the good news is, you can FIX it!

Once you learn how to turn this around, and find a new place for your energies on the “outside” – a man will often turn around on a dime.

Your dating life will change. Your relationship will improve. Everything in your life will get better!

The fantastic thing about being a woman is that getting a man to see how wonderful you are doesn’t involve any effort at all! It’s about simply BEING, not doing.

Women who are truly confident know that they don’t need to DO anything in order to keep a man’s interest, so they naturally have a high perceived value in men’s eyes.

This is a very different feeling and “vibe” than chasing a man down, trying to impress HIM and prove to him that you’re a great catch.

The truth is, men CAN’T fall in love when we’re giving to them – they fall in love when they’re giving to US.

A masculine-energy man’s biggest desire is to be with a woman who allows him to do things for her – a woman who’s able to RECEIVE what he has to give!  

You’ll be the most attractive woman in the world to a man if you can lean back and allow him to give to you. 

When you demonstrate that you can receive from a man, that’s when he feels the most connected to you and can REALLY fall in love.

I shared exactly how to do this to bring a man closer than ever in Teleclass #13 of my Effortlessly Attract Love Program.

      Ok, I have a question. I quit taking crumbs from hum and my r/s actually did get worse. Or what I mean is that I got even less then the crumbs. Why?

      • Helena Hart

        Hi Michelle,
        That’s a great question, and I’m sorry to hear that you went through this. This is a classic sign that this was NOT the right man for you.
        Here’s a blog post and a video I recorded that should give you some clarity around this:

        If a woman is accepting crumbs because she’s afraid of losing a man, that creates a whole vibe around her that a man can FEEL – and this does the OPPOSITE of bring him closer. I’m so glad to hear that you realize you deserve more than crumbs!
        Love, Helena

            In a word ? Yes.
            Why do you want a relationship with a man who doesn’t make you feel like you are treasured ? Netflix and popcorn sounds better than that to me. Raise your standards, girl and the universe will meet you there with the right person.

      i like this man but he said we are different people what’s that mean maybe you can tell me because i really like him he does not text me or when i text hello he will not answer me

        If a man repeatedly doesn’t reply, especially on direct questions, it a good time to move on with Your life. By not giving certain answer they think, that they haven’t done anything bad, because they don’t wan’t to come as an assholes. A bit weird logic, but unfortunately it is. Especially since he is telling You that You are different, don’t waste Your time.

      I’ve been with my fiance going on 5 yrs now. We started out great got even better then we feel on some very very beyond hard times for roughly 2-3 yrs now. (Started after I was nearly killed in a car accident that happened in front of his job while he was working.) I started massively overfunctionjng once I was completely healed and as back to normal as I’m able to be now. At first he loved seeing me put so much effort into as much as I did. Then literally over night he turn into pure hollowed out ice cube on me. He literally goes back and forth so much and often I sometimes feel I could get whiplash. One min he wants me to relax enjoy myself focus on me n my hobbies then literally could be 2 mins later he’s telling me how lazy and pos I am. And that I should do something to help out be poroductive and useful. I remind him Literally 2 mins ago he wanted ME to relax. Long story short we usually end up in a massive “war” that has gone as long as almost 8 hrs before. I’m truly confused as to what to do, as to what he expects or wants from me anymore! I want to fix our relationship very badly!! I did forget to mention this is also the Same
      Man who saved my life after my accident. Had he not come out to hold me I’d have given up and let the internal bleeding and pain take me! Please any advice or anyone with experience such. as mine I’m open to any and all suggestions and help. Thanks!

        Maybe couples therapy? Seems he’s dealing with issues he’s not aware of and is taking it out on you. Maybe stress at work, maybe losing you made him feel less than, maybe you overfunctioning is making him malfunction but he doesn’t realize that’s what is going on. Couples therapy will help find the answer especially since you’re engaged. If it was a boyfriend I’d say leave and let him figure it out but since you’ve sort of made a long term commitment to each other you should t just leave, otherwise will your marriage work? I could be wrong but this is what comes to mind when I read your message. I had a boyfriend who did the same but it was in our first year of knowing each other, I didn’t leave and it got worse. He had issues he needed to solve and me staying wasn’t going to solve it since he didn’t want to seek help. Put yourself first always cos that’s the only way you can help him.

      Hi Helena thanks for the useful info. I am separated from my husband for I started a relationship with someone two years ago. All went well he spoiled got so much and gave me so much attention. Actually he can make any women feel special. He unfortunately got engaged to someone and I learned afterwards the second one is on the way. We stayed together until he had no choice but to get married. Apologies that his heart is with me but he can’t just leave her seeing that there is two children now. However he is still making constant contact and time for me. But the last two months I started realising I am worth more n deserve better. But it is still diffict sometimes and its as if I don’t want to accept there will be no future no matter what. My gut tells me that there is also someone else beside me and the wife. It’s so disappointing for someone who never dated a lot of men and is very sacred when it comes to making love. I sometimes feel in control of my emotions but not always.
