Men say they just don't understand women. They think we're unpredicatable, irrational and impossible to figure out. Finally, here is a man's guide to women and how to deal with the woman you love.

When she pulls away, pull her back.

When she steals your favorite hoodie, let her wear it.
When she says she loves you, tell her you love her more than anything.
When she grabs at your hand, hold hers, look into her eyes and smile.
If she tells you a secret, listen with interest and keep it safe and unshared.

When she looks into your eyes, look back and don’t look away until she does.

When she’s angry, hold her tight and kiss her hair, don’t let go until she’s calm.

When she says she’s Ok or that nothing’s wrong, don’t believe it.

Call her at 12am on her birthday to say you love her and couldn’t wait to tell her.

Treat her like she’s all that matters to you.

Watch her favorite movie with her, even if you think it’s stupid, and don’t make comments or roll your eyes during the movie.

Don’t talk about other girls around her, and NEVER tell her how “hot” a girl passing by is.

Kiss her in the pouring rain. Kiss her in a falling snow. Kiss her in the middle of a crowd.

When she runs to you crying , cradle her like a child and ask “Whose ass am I kicking baby?”

Even if you’ve been together for 25 years, have her scoot next to you in the car or on the couch.

Gently play with her hair.

When she’s sick, with a sore red nose, her hair is a tangled mess and she’s in flannel pj’s and fuzzy slippers, tell her she’s beautiful.

When you see her walking, sneak up and hug her waist from behind.

When she's scared, hold her, protect her

Don’t let a day go by without letting her know in some way that she’s important to you and that you love her. Why? Because she’s a woman and every day she’s doubting herself.

Women are the most complex of all God’s creatures. No matter how confident, beautiful, talented and intelligent one may be, she still needs constant reassurance that she is loved and treasured by the man she loves. If she denies this, she’s lying!

Notice that NOTHING on this list cost money. That’s because “things” aren’t as important to a woman in love than reassurance that she is loved in return. Sure, women love little gifts and surprises, but believe me, expressions of love mean so much more!



  1. Yes, beautiful and all true......one thing I would add in, unless I missed it ....is .....to always make her feel wanted sexually.......and make love to her often......otherwise your list is perfect!

  2. Great post , Marion! Love Doris' two cents two - Between you - you have it "licked"... although, I'm thinkin' Tony also covers that in his He Said.... LOL

  3. I am totally in love with Doris.

    Making love is the key phrase. Don't just get in there & give her a meaningless quickie. Make slow passionate love. It is so much more exciting when done that way!

  4. Never underestimate the power of a good.......
    (Couldn't help myself - had too!)

  5. No argument there.

    A quickie is better than nothing!

    But I'm sure you will agree that it's so much better with music, candles, soft kisses, foreplay, stripping....

    I gotta stop... getting too excited!!

    Where's Doris???

  6. HA! Come on now Tony... DUH!
    I KNOW you read my stuff! ;)

  7. I wish my boyfriend would read this! I would love to know that he feels I'm that important to him. I'd especially like to have him grab my hand first, kiss me first, say "I love you"first! I know he cares, but you're right Marion, I need to be reassured and I definately want to be treasured and cherished! Are there any men out there that still do these things? One can only dream!

  8. I was looking back over your posts from last year and had to comment again. It's been a year since my last comment and my situation with my husband has only grown worse. He's distant and at times even seems like it's a chore to give me a peck on the cheek. Marion, Jillian and Tony- am I wrong to want some affection and physical contact? I'm not as young as I used to be, but I'm not dead! Do I need to suggest a marriage counselor to him and risk losing him completely? Our children are grown so it's just the 2 of us. I thought we'd be running around the house naked and having the time of our lives at this point. Advice would greatly appreciated. I follow the 3 of you faithfully and respect what you each have to say, although you're each SO different from each other. I'll be checking back for your advice. Thank you, Bonnie

  9. Bonnie.... Come on over!!
    I'm kidding!!
    You do whatever you need to do. Whether it's counseling, being naked for him when he comes home from being out, stocking up on toys, etc.
    My advice is to explore every possible option. God forbid you do lose him at least you'll know you did all you could.
    The physical aspect is so important. I don't know why so many people think it's not.
    Keep us updated Bonnie!!
