Here is what he is hiding from you according to Cosmo.
His Friends Are Dogs
You probably suspect that your man turns into a different person around his pals. He knows you think this, so if his friends are a
bunch of booze-chugging, skirt-chasing delinquents, he has absolutely no incentive to reveal it to you. "I love my friends despite their faults," says John, 27.
"I also love hanging out with them, but that doesn't mean I engage in all their less-than- wholesome behavior." If you trust him
to behave — you don't interrogate him about his nights out and avoid bad-mouthing his buddies — he'll trust you enough to explain
how Tijuana Tom got his nickname.
He Just Got Chewed Out by His Boss
Few things can completely destroy a man's self-image like poor performance on the job. So when things go south at work, he'll do
whatever he can to avoid bringing it up. "I really do like talking to my girlfriend when stuff bothers me, but no matter how lousy
I feel about getting reamed at work, it's one thing I never tell her about," admits Chris, 33.
"I feel like I still need her to think highly of me when other people don't."
He Fears You're Out of His League
Men obviously go after hot girls, and actually getting one can be a huge ego boost. But for some guys, it becomes an ego bust when
they question whether they actually deserve you. "My ex was a part-time model, and she turned so many heads, it was impossible not
to be insecure about my own looks," explains Jeremy, 35. Your guy would never admit to a similar crisis of confidence, so reassure
him by repaying a few of the compliments he no doubt lavishes on you.
His Family Is Crazy
Unfortunately, dysfunctional families are far less funny in real life than they are in prime-time sitcoms. Guys figure they're a
huge relationship red flag for women, so they do their best to keep screwy relatives hidden. "My mom and dad had a horrible
divorce, and my brother spent two years in jail," admits Steve, 30. "But I definitely do not broadcast that, because I don't want
girls to think it's what my eventual family life will resemble." And since he can't keep his family hidden forever, remember:
The nut can fall far from the tree.
