What Men Say About Women (It May Surprise You!)


What Men Say About Women (It May Surprise You!)
Insight from men on dating and relationships gleaned from two "man panel" events.

A2: Approach us and make it clear you are interested. It's fantastic when I know you'll say "yes"…but let me take lead and ask.

A3: Maybe I haven't even noticed you. So if you're interested in me, definitely let me know you're interested. I realize that's a potentially vulnerable place to be, but if you don't ask you don't get! (Note from me: my father always used to tell me that. Seems to be true in many ways.)

Q: What do you want from your woman?

A1: I want her to be like my mom: I want my woman to love me unconditionally and always think I'm better than even I think I am.

A2: Love…and acceptance for who I am.


That's just a taste. Men really aren't different than us in the ways of love, are they? They want to give and receive...and be accepted for who they are. Men definitely do think differently, but that doesn't mean they want different things. Once you accept that, take some time to understand how they think and feel, and learn how to communicate with them. You too can have a fantastic relationship with a loving man.

I'm so curious...how did you feel reading this? Tell me about it here!
