Men, we love you. We do. And we couldn’t live without you. But there are just some things you need to learn. So, we’re breaking it down and letting you know what women really want…
Tip #1: When we’re lying in bed and I’m snuggling up to you, I’m actually looking for chit chat, pillow talk, an adult conversation – NOT the bone 🙅
Tip #2: If I am venting or complaining about something unrelated to you, stop what you’re doing, listen, and let me continue without interrupting. Don’t offer a solution, don’t list off all the steps on how to fix it, because I DON’T CARE. Just validate me. Let me know that my feelings are real and that they matter, and then ask if there is anything YOU can do to help. I may be completely wrong about everything, but all I want is for you to ask how you can help.
Tip #3: If I ask you if this bathing suit looks good on me, tell me it does. When I get home from the salon, compliment my new hair. When you look at me, pretend I’m the same woman that I was ten years ago (because, helloooo, I am). 🔥💃
Tip #4: My period is NOT your inconvenience, and my period is not the reason for my mood. You have no right to be annoyed that I’m bleeding for seven days straight. And don’t you dare tell me that there are “lots of other things we can do” during this time. Instead, empathize with me – please.
Tip #5: Be aware of what’s going on in our children’s lives. Come home from work early one day and offer to take them to one of their after-school activities. Take an unexpected day off to show your commitment to our family. Offer to help every now and then. Seriously. Only every now and then, that’s all I’m asking for! 🙏
Tip #6: When I ask you a question that has to do with future plans, don’t hesitate, don’t contemplate, don’t grunt and say maybe. Say: “That is an AMAZING idea. I love that idea!” There’s nothing more attractive than a YES man. 😍
Now guys, we’re not saying you’re bad people. That’s not it at all. We just want to help you. And that’s why we’re sharing these tips. You are welcome 👍
