Here are 10 Things Women Wish Men Knew About Them….
Secret No. 1:
Women appreciate a guy with a sensitive side, especially when they’re upset. Put your arm around them or hand them a tissue if need be. Nurturing is a powerful way to connect.
Secret No. 2:
When it comes to romance, many women prefer men to take a traditionally masculine role. This is especially true in the wooing stage of a relationship. They are capable of pulling out their own chair or opening a door, but if you see them hesitate, they might just be waiting for you to be the gentleman. Go ahead!
Secret No. 3
Although styles change, men’s attention to their grooming and clothing should be long lasting. It is important to women from the first flirtation through the honeymoon and after that. If she doesn’t tell you (which she should do) you’ve got to figure out if there’s a certain look that she likes and do that to impress her either on your big day or a day you’re going out on a date.
Secret No. 4:
Don’t hide your flaws. Nothing captures a woman’s heart quite like a good man who wants to be a better man. Women love personal growth; they love a man who is thoughtful and sensitive. They like it when their men recognise a flaw and make an effort to address it.
Secret No. 5:
You don’t have to be their “Mr. fix it all.”When something’s bothering them, they want your ear, not your advice. Men feel the need to fix things because they are solution-oriented. But to a woman, really listening is a wonderful, wonderful thing that deepens the relationship.
Secret No. 6:
Women like the slow lane. Most guys often want to take the quickest path to sex. But many women prefer the scenic route. Except for a few who are unique, most women want to feel connected and understood, they want to be romanced. That means time and talking and meaningful touches.
Secret No. 7:
Learn what they want. Women do like to talk about what’s going on and a simple approach is often best. Simply ask them what they like. As a man, do ask for what you want in a positive and validating way – not forceful, like it’s your right.
Secret No. 8:
It might be difficult at first but say it, again and again. Women like to be told they look nice, and they like a man who notices without being told. When they are wearing a new dress, a new hairdo or haircut, if they are looking more fit — let them hear about it.
Secret No. 9:
We need to talk doesn’t always mean there’s trouble. When your woman wants to talk, it doesn’t always mean you did something wrong. An honest, wide-ranging talk can bring the two of you closer.
Secret No. 10:
Don’t be late all the time. Women put in a lot of work especially when they are set to go out with their men. You don’t want to ruin the night by standing her up or make her sit alone at a table for long waiting for her companion.
