No introduction is really needed

to this story. I was just appalled last month when I was reading an article in some magazine from a man (naturally), who said he didn't know "anything" about making a woman happy.

Well, buddy, welcome to manhood. None of us men know "all" of the ways and things that we need to be doing in order to make the lady in our lives happy all of the time.

If "I" can just make my lady happy a decent portion of each day, then I am very grateful.

But in case I am tempted to backslide and fall back into just being a man with all of his faults and character flaws . . .I, along with you, gentlemen, have these . . .

"11 Things That Women "LOVE" For Men To Do"

to use to get out of trouble.


to see how her day went. I said it. Stopping, your ESPN SportsCenter, all BCS Championship play-back's, and anything else you might be doing when she enters the room. Take my word. She might not appreciate your stopping what you were doing right then, but in a few days, she will, like all women, notice and appreciate you putting her first.


Not glaring. Not staring. Just very attentive. Even if she doesn't have a word to say. Show her that you are genuinely-interested in what she has to say. Women "do" have opinions, men. Smart opinions. So learn to sit and look into her eyes. One more thing. You can tell a lot about a woman by how her eyes look. What do I mean? Wait and see.


So much, but allowing her to share her day or girls night out with you. Girls have a sharp sense of humor. They can make you laugh even if you are depressed. I promise you that if you let her do most of the talking, she will love you more.


To her. Do not use pointless analogies, metaphors, and foolish speeches. Women are highly-intelligent beings. They can handle big words. Just communicate in simple terms what you are feeling and why you are feeling that way. But do not go on and on. Find a stopping place for her to share her ideas with you about why you are feeling a certain way.


With your soul and heart, not as much with your ears. I do believe that many hot relationships start and continue for years by the man just taking time to listen. Besides if you are like me, I love a woman's voice. I mean I love the way they talk with a passion, and I am not boasting, but listening to a woman is a great pleasure for me.


Such as red roses will cheer her up and show her that you still think that "she is it." But if you cannot afford roses, let me reveal a great secret to you. "A heartfelt gift of one wild flower picked, is more priceless than a field of nurtured daisies."


With your wife or girlfriend. Making a woman happy is not complicated. Women love to laugh and just share their time with a caring companion. That does include a good laugh. Watch a comedy show with her. Take her to the movies. It doesn't matter. Laughter is vital to a long-lasting relationship.


With her when she is hurt goes a long way when it comes to making her happy. One thing any woman cannot stand is a distant, cold-hearted man who has taken her for granted. And he doesn't show any emotion--good or bad when it is her turn to hurt. Learn to feel her hurt when she gets hurt. If she weeps, weep with her. You are no less of man for it.


Together holding hands is not out of style, men. I know what I am talking about. You don't have to talk at all if you do not want to, only if your girlfriend or wife wants to talk about her dreams or feelings, but it's the being together walking in a nice, peaceful place that makes a relationship richer.


To her will make her day, or night, if you will just make the effort. "Hey, Ken, my girlfriend doesn't like poetry," you argue. It doesn't matter. She will love it if you tell her (and mean it) that a certain poem makes you think of her. Try this, guys and see if I am not right.


Like holding hands, is not out of style either. What's wrong with a hug when she gets home from her job or school? Nothing. Embracing is the body's way of expressing deep feelings for the other person. Put this one into practice.

Good day.

See you later.

Is this how you want the woman in your life to look?

      Well done, this makes such a nice change from the usual materialistic lists - and is far more accurate!

      Dear Catgypsy,

      You might send her an email and ask her if she feels lucky living with me . . .oops, hey! Best think it through. Lol.

      I'm the lucky one.

      And thanks for your super-nice comment.

      Hello, dear lupine,

      I admit it. I love and appreciate women. Respecting them, encouraging them and building them up is easy.

      My mom raised me while my dad was away at jobs he worked when I was a kid.

      My mom was a wise lady.

      Yes, I am biased.

      Dear Angela,

      Thank you for your uplifting words. I needed them. Love you for the words and being my friend.

      This hub was my heart-felt pleasure.

      Maybe a future hub, "11 Things That Men Love For Women To Do," is in the works.

      You are a man after my own heart -- and one of experience. These are truly things women appreciate. Most of the junk about what we like involves a wine label and how big a diamond is -- pure hogwash! You've done all womankind a service here and bless you! Best/Sis
