Instead of saying "I am upset and 1 need some time to be alone," men just become quiet. ' A woman M respond "I know something's wrong. " "But you seem upset.

When she sees I am in my cave, she goes shopping. I never feel like 1 have to apologize for my Martian side. When she can take care of herself I feel OK taking care of myself and going into my cave. She trusts that I will come back and be more loving. She knows that when I go into my cave is not the right time to talk.
