65 Weak Man Quotes To Remind You That He’s Not Worthy Of You

Almost every woman dreams of being in a relationship with an alpha male, but that doesn’t always come true. What if you’re involved with a weak man? How do you tell him that he’s weak without hurting his feelings? Well, for starters, you could send him some of these weak man quotes.

Many women fail to recognize signs of a weak man in a relationship. And I’m not talking about being physically weak, but inadequately able to handle a proper romantic relationship.

The thing is, most women live in an illusion that certain characteristics and behaviors of men are normal and pretty common, but that’s far from the truth. There are a lot of cues of a weak man in a relationship that could make your life a living hell.

Truth be told, women are used to the notion that men have to be strong and dominant. They like when their man is able to handle things on his own without seeking help from anyone. That’s how they know a man is competent to deal with whatever life throws at him.

Having a healthy mindset and being emotionally mature is also considered a favorable feature to have. It means that the man isn’t afraid to show his vulnerable side and is completely honest with his significant other.

On the other hand, a weak man is someone that you need to carry through life and you’ll never be completely certain whether or not you have a future together. You always fight for power and it almost feels like you’re in a one-sided relationship.

After some time, a relationship with a man like this becomes tiresome and takes a toll on your mental health.
