Lately, I've received a lot of e-mail from men asking what they SHOULD do to be the kind of men that women want.
And being the kind, generous person that I am, I decided to give these poor creatures a little help.
I've started a list of things that men can do to please me (Relationship Tips for Men, dating tips for men, flirting tips for men) and I want to hear from you too.
What things win you over? What's the sweetest thing a guy has done for you? What do you wish a guy would do? Are you a guy who did something that made a woman really happy? Let's teach these men a thing or two about how to treat women....
Understand the fact that if a girl says she "isn't ready for a commitment" or "doesn't want a boyfriend right now," what she really means is that she doesn't want these things with you, she might with someone else. Don't wait around for her to change her mind.
OK men, I'm going to skip the obvious because if you don't know these things, you require more help than I can give. Things like honesty, faithfulness, love, concern, kindness, interest, sincerity, respect & all those other basic considerations are a given. Now for some more "advanced" tips of the trade....
If you are going to buy a woman flowers, do not simply order a dozen red roses. That takes absolutely no thought or imagination. It is a cliche. Buy tulips. Or Daisies. Or a bunch of wildflowers. Not only is that more impressive, it's usually cheaper too! :-)
Don't go to a movie on a first date. You can't talk & get to know each other. Plus, it's awkward sitting in silence with someone you barely know. Go to dinner. Have coffee. Visit a museum. Have a picnic in a field somewhere. Anything that allows you to actually interact with each other
Don't be a pushover. I'm not saying you should be a dickhead but for God's sake, have a backbone. It is impossible to respect a guy who caters to a woman's every whim. We may think we like it at first but it gets old, really quickly.
Although I don't think that guys always have to pay for a date, they do have to pay for the FIRST date.
If you invite a girl to your house, put any pictures of ex-girlfriends in a drawer or a box. Nobody wants to see that.
If my dog hates you, you have no shot. I trust my dog's judgment. So be nice to the dogs. And cats. And rabbits. And ferrets. And birds. And mice. Women are serious about their pets.
