Giving advice to OTHER men, on women
That's funny ... ironic "funny", I mean, (though I did chuckle)
As if ANY man ever had a clue what women are about ...
But, I suppose, I have learned a few things
Very painfully learned ...
But NOTHING is absolute with women ... nothing is empirical
So, I won't call my tidbits "advice", but rather "observations" ...
That's as close as I can come, (or ANY man that I know, for that matter)
OK, here goes - Firstly, LISTEN ... REALLY listen to her
That is, for me, the key to any relationship
But if you really listen and respond with care to what a woman is saying
Then you're off to a good start
We all tell little lies at times, for the sake of kindness
But strive to be forthright and true, always
Or it will shatter the bridge before it's barely built.
MAKE HER LAUGH ...
A sense of humor will take you a very long way with most females
And it doesn't hurt your OWN well-being, either
To be positive, up-beat, happy, and funny.
Yes, the old-fashioned, hold-the-door-and-lay-down-the-coat romantic
(Unless she doesn't LIKE that sort of behavior, of course).
Attention to little romantic details like your anniversaries ...
I mean anniversaries for EVERYTHING
The day you met, the day you first said "I love you"
The day you kissed, held hands, met her best friend, went to a concert
Every little special moment you can remember ...
The moments that put that "Awwww!!" look on her face
Flowers, chocolates, a four-leaf clover ... be creative.
Be careful with your words ... they hear EVERYthing
And they remember every little promise and special comment
Even though YOU may not think of it the same way.
Find her likes and dislikes, and write them down, if you have to.
PDA's - just DO it!
Hold her hand in public, don't walk in front of her but beside her
Brush the hair from her eyes, give her quick, romantic kisses
Little through-the-day massages of her back or shoulders.
Avoid looking at other women at all costs!
Be valiant and chivalrous, and cook her dinner sometimes
Ask her how her day was ...
Tell her how beautiful she is and compliment her
NOTICE the little changes she makes in her clothes and jewelry
Discover her dreams and make them yours
Leave your arm around her, even if it falls asleep
Know the details of her childhood ...
Don't kiss her ONLY when you want to be intimate
* MAKE LOVE to her, don't just "have sex" *
Don't be satisfied until SHE is, (and learn how to nibble)
Learn how to have mutual climax, (you'll thank me)
Learn the special places on her body that make her crazy
(Nape of her neck, behind her knee, her ear, under her arm, palm of her
Hand, dimples on her back, inside her thigh ... there are MORE!)
Find those places and make love to them with your hands and mouth ...
Tenderly ... write naughty words there in cursive with your fingertips
Make pleasing her in bed your most important job!
LEARN what she likes and doesn't like, and be attentive to it ALL
Learn how she likes to kiss, and do it for hours
Kiss her everywhere ... and savor every inch
Kiss her with some of her hair between your mouths
Kiss her upside-down, (trust me ... it's amazing!)
Taste her like she's the most delectable, expensive candy you've ever had
And then share it with her ... in a kiss
NEVER let her go to bed or say goodnight ANGRY or unsatisfied
Find out what makes up her "Knight in Shining Armor", and BE it
DO. NOT. CHEAT. EVER ...
If you can't be faithful, you should not be with her ... period.
Jeremy Piven once said, "The Fidelity Bank and Trust is a tough creditor,
"If you make a deposit somewhere else, they close your account ... FOREVER!"
Learn it. Remember it. LIVE by it.
Make her smile ... make it be your smile.
Love her fearlessly, proudly, honestly, loyally, and DEEPLY.
Dance with her at unusual times ... even if there's no music or dance floor
BE CLEAN, take care of yourself, wear what she likes to see on you
Be polite and caring, and make sure others RESPECT her
Always, always make her the most important thing in your life
And make sure she FEELS that way
Don't be possessive, but be protective
Don't be forceful, but be assertive
Don't be angry, but be passionate
Don't be weak, but be tender
Don't be crass, but be sensual
Don't act stupid, but make her feel intelligent
Don't act like a loser, but let her win
Don't act indecisive, but let her choose
Don't act foolish, but let her guide you
And most of all ...
Treat her like the princess or queen that she DESERVES to be!
I know this isn't everything, but it's a good start
Besides, I'm still learning ...
And NO ONE will ever learn it all ...
Such is the sublime and wondrous enigma called WOMAN ...
And we wouldn't have it any other way.
