Helpful reminders from the staff of Men's Health.

My self-inflicted inundation with last week’s Spitzer scandal left me feeling some man hate deeper than call-girl-Kristen’s cleavage. That an otherwise intelligent ex-boyfriend justified the father of three’s romp with a “Those girls were hot” response certainly didn’t help. I was left thinking: Are men at the core un-evolved animals interested only in hopping into bed with as many pretty young things as possible?

Hence, it was refreshing to start this week anew with a list of real men’s opinions about women.

The male staff at Men’s Health recently compiled a list of “50 Things Men Wish You Knew” to accompany a female-created 50-point list outlining what women want from men. While certain entries, such as #7 “Shopping is a chore, not an activity,” come as no surprise, there are certain tidbits that, even if they’re nothing new to you, I believe are beneficial to read and be reminded of.

Here are a few favorites, straight from the stallions' mouths:
1. Express yourself. It makes us proud, even if someone thinks you're wrong.
8. No question need ever be asked through a closed bathroom door if I'm inside. I love you less with each syllable you utter.
12. Leave the eyebrows alone. Plucked ain't pretty.
22. When you get angry over some stupid little pointless thing, I question your intelligence.
42. Sometimes we wonder why any woman would want to be with us, much less someone as amazing as you. So, thanks.

No, thank you, Men’s Health, for restoring the “hu” to my view of “man.”
