“Men need to sustain 30 times more testosterone than women to feel good. When a man’s testosterone levels are high, he will come on strong. After connecting for a while the love hormone, oxytocin, begins to increase. It feels good to him and her but too much oxytocin inhibits testosterone. At this point he goes from hot to cold and withdraws to rebuild his testosterone. Like a rubber band he stretches away only to spring back when his testosterone levels are restored. Giving him the space to pull away without pursuing him at that time allows him to fully pull away, rebuild his testosterone and then spring back. Why Mars and Venus Collide explain these hormonal differences in greater detail.”
