Many men have said that women are hard to understand and they find it very hard to figure out what their woman really wants and needs to keep their relationship happy and on track. The 20 tips below are not a rule book for each and every woman but they are a very good guide to work with. Fellas, use these tips wisely to keep your woman happy.
1. Small things count.
Some men think all they have to do is surprise us once and they’re set for life, but trust, women keep notes. Try picking-up her favorite feel-good treat while you’re on your way home this evening (clue, it’s either wine, chocolate or cheese) or buy her that new item she has been talking about non-stop. Trust, she will show her appreciation.
2. The E-word.
Effort (a word no man is unfamiliar with) is always the hitch. How about cook her dinner. There’s nothing sexier to a woman than a man who knows his way around the kitchen. Take out the trash, call her to see how her day is or do something really special for her anniversary.
3. Confidence is hot, arrogance is NOT.
Every woman loves a man who’s comfortable in his own skin. It makes them feel safe and protected and nothing feels sexier than that. But arrogance? They. Can’t. Stand. It.
4. Chivalry is not dead.
Be old fashioned – women love it. Make sure you continue to hold the door for your woman entering and exiting venues, Open her car door, etc.
5. Don’t be a man-baby.
Women are nurturing, yes, they love taking care of their men and helping them out. But as soon as they feel like they are in mommy mode they want out. Most men are kids at heart, but if they are doing more than a bit of coddling (i.e. cutting your food into little pieces) then there’s definitely a BIG problem.
6. Listen and take interest.
After a hectic day all women want their man to do is listen. Women like to talk and pour their feelings out – it’s a well known fact. They confide in their man, because they trust them to make them feel better. So please just mute the TV, put down your beer and just listen!
7. Be honest.
It’s true when they say honesty is the best policy. Telling a lie might seem like a great idea now, but women always find out and when we do it ain’t pretty.
8. Make her your priority.
Women need to feel like they’re more important than a PlayStation. Of course men need to spend time with the fellas and have some down time, but 3rd place isn’t cool. If your woman doesn’t feel like she’s a priority then you’re doing something very wrong!
9. Notice the small things.
Every woman wants to be noticed by her man. New hairstyle? New clothes? New dress size? New bra? Say something to acknowledge her effort, besides they (partially) did it for you!
10. Take it slow (in bed).
It can’t get any worse than a man finishing before the woman even started. Women take longer to reach orgasm and foreplay is key – take your time and don’t rush.
11. Turning down sex is NOT a big deal.
More often than not, if your woman turns down sex, it probably has nothing to do with you. Women have their down days – exhaustion, stress, worry? They’re all major mood killers. It happens – don’t take it personally.
12. Help your Lady.
There’s nothing more irritating to a woman than a lazy man. Try helping her out with household chores, the school run and daily errands. It’s just as much your responsibility as it is hers.
13. Sometimes your lady need ‘me time’.
Most of the time you can’t get her to stop talking, but sometimes she need a little ‘me time’. If your woman seems relaxed and says nothing’s wrong, there probably isn’t. Chill out bro.
14. Learn to say sorry.
Stop being so stubborn! If it’s your fault and you’re clearly in the wrong you owe it to her. Go on, say the magic word. Sorry can go a long way in relationships…
15. Sometimes they feel like crap.
Men think women are attention seekers most of the time, but sometimes they actually do feel like crap. Don’t forget those painful cramps, headaches and PMS. Periods are hell to deal with – give her a break.
16. Take care of your hygiene.
Brushed your teeth? Showered? Deodorized? You’re a grown ass man, take care of yourself.
17. Do not forget the anniversary or birthday.
There’s 365 days in a year and you only have to remember 2 of them, that’s why they get pissed off. Set a reminder on your phone, write it in your planner or tell your mom if you have to (just don’t tell them you did), but whatever you do, do NOT forget.
18. Respect Her.
Some men don’t value their partners as much as they should. Love her like it’s your last day, appreciate her for all that she is and be grateful for everything she does. Think about it.
19. If you’ve ever thought of making a super sweet gift like a homemade card, scrapbook or a mixed CD and thought, ‘too cheesy’, you’re wrong! It’s a great way of speaking from the heart especially since men aren’t always so good at it (verbally). She is guaranteed to love it.
20. You can’t live without Her.
Men often take women for granted, but in reality you’re nothing without her! Who else would take care of you? Play dress up? Make you a better man? Just admit it.
