We’re all busy, so any time you can knock a few things off the to-do list is a good time. Not only do we want to save time, we want to save mental energy—something we spend a lot of on our men, and often, don’t need to. The reality is, we’re more sensitive than they are. It’s the curse of being mutli-taskers. We are also multi-thinkers and are aware of everything, at every moment.

Here are 6 things we put way too much time into for our guys that we just don’t have to…

    This is one of the dumbest lists I’ve ever read. I honestly don’t think you should force or push anything on anyone but in a serious relationship these things are key!!! If the author is referring to a casual dating relationship then yes these are good tips to keep in mind. But let’s just say you stop showing him concern, support, attention and it’s your long term man or husband, this list will have him laying under some other woman!!!!

    #7 Eyebrow arching. Unless you have a set of Al B. Sure’s, men don’t care that much about your eyebrows. Just keep ‘em relatively neat.

    Here it is girls. In the bedroom, be enthusiastic and enjoy yourself. Be clean. We never, never want to smell anything, except light perfume. If things start to heat up, excuse yourself and go clean up. When guys compare notes, clean is always high on the list of attributes. And yes, we guys also need to practice the same behavior. Other than that, don’t ask us what we are thinking! It probably isn’t about you. Don’t hang on us. Give us some space and we will probably keep you around. Don’t criticize our friends. They are not in competition with you. You will get your share of our time. Remember, girls come and go, friends are forever. Love you all! Really. Some of you make it hard though.

    Uh, “your stems”? Seriously?

    This is probably the most sexist article I’ve ever read

  • Truthbetold

     “Since we’re natural caregivers”
    Well, I’m not. Does that make me any less of a woman? I think not. I, however, think that the “author” of this piece of junk is so incredibly let by oldfashioned stereotypical gender roles that I am beginning to wonder if Ms Jaustin isn’t on the payrole of some conservative “we like out women barefood and pregnant” type of group. How sad, how hilariously sad.

    Yea not all men are the same n there are plenty out there that are wonderful to their mates
    i never knew a guy could be so selfish until a close family member of mine died.he came over to see me n console me.or so i thought.
    He ate the little food i had n soon wanted to have sex.i couldn’t believe it.i told him i couldn’t.This piece of boy left pissed off n refused to come back.
    I broke it off w.him immediately.never wana see him again.Too selfish for my beautiful self.

     There are men who would quickly love each other if
    once they were speak to each other; for when they spoke they would
    discover that their souls had only separated by phantoms and delusions.

    As a guy, I’m interested in anything my girl has to say and everything that’s going on in her life, specially if it’s an event she feel is big.  I’m just absentminded and sometimes forget to make follow up questions, so I’m grateful and appreciative that my girlfriend gives me updates on her life’s happenings.

     “(Hopefully men don’t read this article, or they’ll begin paying attention to your stems, even if they didn’t before!)” Seriously? What are we, blind? We notice these things.  We just don’t think it’s THAT important.  We know our girls have more important things in their minds.

    I keep up with Madame Noire, but I gotta say, all of y’all’s articles on men are offensive generalizations.    I am a feminist man, but I will admit it’s pretty hard to treat a woman as an equal, as she deserves, when a lot of you out there are still writing articles such as this that perpetuate misconceptions about men as testosterone-driven machines that “go straight for the goods”.
    As a magazine for strong, intelligent black women, I would expect more from you.

    Women, stop reading these articles and just love your man.  If he’s a good man, he’ll love you back.  That’s all you need to know.

      I think you are absolutely right!  However, you may be a caring man… not all men are.  There are many men who do “go straight for the goods”, or that fail when it comes to caring about their woman’s feelings.  I’m just sayin… you may be one of those guys who falls into the “great” 10% of men!  That’s good for you, but not everyone is like you.  Keep up the great work :)

      After reading this…I’m pretty sure I’m more of a “man” in my relationship than the gentleman I’m dating :). All the attributes they described as being “masculine” is one of the (many) reasons people tell me that when I date men, they are not quite sure what to do with me. Which begs the question: Are these behaviors or attitudes restricted to men or just certain types of people with personalities that we have attributed to masculinity.
