Men can be vocal about what they want from their significant others, sometimes expecting them to anticipate their needs or indulge their desires. Yet, they don’t always express what they would like to do with their partners. So, here’s a list of things that your man might like to do with you, in regards to entertainment, sex, and hobbies, that you might not have thought of.
When love seems eternal, some men like to signify that by having the both of you mark one another with a token of affection, like an image or name written on the other person’s body. The latter idea is kind of a terrible idea, so even if your man doesn’t want you to tattoo his lips on your hips, or put his initials on your body, a lot of men simply enjoy getting tattoos with their significant other and hitting up the tattoo parlor together for a quick thrill.
With all the focus on bedroom skills, sometimes it seems like men forget the fact that the majority of the time they spend with a woman will occur outside of the bedroom. As the saying goes, “It’s not about who you want to spend your Friday night with but who you want to spend all day Saturday with.” That subtle difference is what separates the women you like from the woman you’ll love. For this reason, I want to highlight 11 things men love about women that have nothing to do with sex.
11. Memory – I don’t know how or why, but women remember everything. It’s like an entire region of their brain is dedicated to remembering trivial facts. This same region of a man’s brain is dedicated to remembering sports facts and is generally useless when it comes to things like holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, and pretty much any and all relationship milestones.
10. Non-Linear Thinking – As a continuation of point #1, women can tie issues together that a man would never think to tie together if he was left alone in a room for a million years. As you may have observed over the years, men tend to argue in the confines of the here and now. Women tend to argue within the confines of the here and whenever they feel like. Women aren’t going to let a minor thing like making sense stop them from connecting the current issue to an issue that occurred in the past (that you forgot about) and an issue that might occur in the future (that you haven’t done, yet).
9. Multitasking – If men have a list of 10 things to do, they tackle the first thing, then the second, and so on and so forth. Men aren’t about that doing two things at once life. If women have a list of 10 things to do, they tackle all 10 things at once. This would make the average man’s head explode. Women know this (see point #2), which is why they win 95% of arguments with men simply by confusing us by bringing up more than one issue at a time – even if the issue she brings up has nothing to do with the current argument. In other words, women are mental ninjas.
8. Strength – Most men are physically stronger than the woman they date but women possess a different type of strength. The ability to have kids is the most obvious, but men also tend to give up fairly easily if they don’t feel like fully investing themselves, even if it’ll hurt them in the long run. For example, a former cell phone company (who shall remain nameless) used to screw up my bill pretty much every billing cycle. I charged this to the game as a part of doing business. One month, my girlfriend at the time found out about this and she took it as a personal affront. Next thing I know, she goes all Rambo III on them. By the time she got done with her bill-collector cursing out vendetta they ended up paying ME money just to get her to stop calling. Basically, a woman’s strength is magnified by the fact that everyone is scared of an angry woman.
Have you ever noticed that the day you swear off men, the day you decide to dedicate all your attention to your career/social life/whatever—men come swarming to you? It’s not bad luck. And it’s not just you. There’s a psychology behind men being attracted to women who aren’t into dating. Let us break it down for you.
We’re already working so hard to find men/impress men/get men to commit/keep men. We don’t need any more work on our plate as it is. So please, stop wasting your energy on these things that men don’t even notice, or worse yet, don’t want!
Agreeing with him all the time
Men (the ones that aren’t narcissistic) can’t stand a woman that agrees with everything they say. When he asks you where you want to have dinner, it’s because he genuinely wants to know (so don’t say, “wherever you want to go”)! When he picks at you about something, he wants you to fight back! A man can tell immediately when a woman is just agreeing to appease him, or make him like her. And it’s a turn off.
Insecure because you don’t have big boobs, commercial-worthy hair or an impeccable sense of style? Don’t worry: when it comes to looks, men can actually be more perceptive than you think. There are plenty of small, seemingly unattractive details that men love.
Sure, a hot body, gorgeous face and easy-going personality win a man over. But don’t fear if you gain a few lbs. once in a relationship, or if he sees through your “cool” demeanor. There are a dozen plus surprising things that make men fall even more in love with us, without us even trying.
Nails Done, Hair Done, Everything Big? What Men Love and Don’t Care About When It Comes To Your Appearance
Whoever said that women only get dressed for women was only halfway correct. We do consider, when shopping or getting dressed, how our appearance will measure up against other women’s: is this dress unique, or have I seen it before? Will I look as slim as my super slim friends while wearing this? Do I pull off this hairstyle better than that other woman? But the only reason we do this measuring, is to determine how noticeable we will be to men. One woman standing alone in a room of men obviously is the bell of the ball. But add a bar full of ladies that spent two hours on their appearance, and you have to know what your competition is. So: what do men actually notice? And what are we just wasting our time on and, as that anonymous person put it, just doing for the ladies?
