Want to know what makes a man’s heart tingle? It is the little things in life that a women does to make a man feel good about himself or about what he has accomplished that makes him feel like a man.
After being married for a while, I realized that men and women are similar to one another in a way that they both have feelings, even though they express them differently. Have you ever noticed why men don’t like to watch chick flicks with you? Maybe it is because they don’t like the way the emotional stuff makes them feel all glum inside.
When I first met my husband, I went over to his house for a visit. He was sitting on the sofa watching Lifetime Movie for Women. I thought that this was strange and so I sat down beside him without saying a word. I like that television station so I was not going to ruin it by saying anything until after the program. Once the program had ended and the curiosity had gotten the best of me, I asked the question that had been on my mind for a while. Was he really into this or was he doing it for my benefit?
The verdict was in and he replied by saying that just because he is a man, doesn’t mean that he can’t watch those programs. Did he cry? Nope, he got mad when the wife was beaten to death and the husband got off free until he murdered again. I learned real quick that this was his way of dealing with emotions even when it came to watching the chick flicks.
I learned a lot about men from him, more than I had in previous relationships and more than I had from my dad. I think that this has a lot to do with him being open with me and answering all my questions truthfully.
I discovered that men like a lot of the same things that women do. For instance, the next time you go shopping make sure to pick up your man a nice shirt or a pair of jeans that he has been wanting. Women and men are different when it comes to shopping. A lot of times, men won’t go shopping for clothes until he has not choice but to throw his old ones away because they have gotten holes all in them. Women on the other hand, will pick up things because she likes them. This doesn’t mean that men don’t want things unless they need them, they just tend to be more preservative like this. They would much rather spend it on the next football party or their truck. The next time you find something that you think that he might like, pick it up for him. Will he be thankful? Sure he will. He wants nice things, he just can’t bring himself to buy them.
Every once in a while, you should give your man a well deserved massage. I say well deserved because he works hard to bring up his family. This doesn’t mean that you should do this everyday but occasionally would be nice. I massage my man every Wednesday. This gives him something to look forward to and it also helps me to pin him down for a few minutes so that we can have a real talk about things in our life. He wouldn’t dare try to get up, if he does the massage would be over with.
Don’t gripe at him for wanting to run with the boys. I could understand if he did this all the time but occasionally is a nice thing to do. I think that every couple should have a rule to allow each other to hang out with their friends at least one night out of the month. My husband and I do this. He goes with the guys, while I hang out with the ladies. This is a great way to relax with other people other than your family. I don’t care what anybody says, a break away from the family can be nice. When you are around someone to much, you tend to get on each others nerves.
You should let your man throw foot ball parties at your house. Every Super Bowl, we have a huge blow out at the house. We also have one for the first game of the Oklahoma Sooner’s and again when the Oklahoma Sooner’s versus the Oklahoma State University. I wasn’t much into football other than the Super Bowl. My husband on the other hand, is a big fanatic. We compromised on a deal that said that when his buddies where over, if they are married then their wife has to be allowed to come or else they can’t come. My results were kind of fun. The men started bringing their wives and we would drink margaritas and shoot some pool while the men, were watching their foot ball.
There are a lot of things that you can do to keep your man feeling like a man without making him feel like he is tied down and can’t breath. Being married does not mean that the fun should have to end for either one of you and you should know this and make it a happy marriage.
