About once a week, I hear from a man regarding something I’ve written.
The latest submission explained very clearly one man’s thoughts about what men want.
What do you think? Here’s what he said:
I read your 101 things to do for your Husband. Nicely written – but purely from a woman’s perspective. Men don’t need any of those things – except – “Initiating intimacy” – that’s it. This really is all men need emotionally. This one thing alone tells men that my wife is in the right spot and loves me. Now, most women – including yourself, would think “how shallow, No, I wouldn’t want a man like that!” But the truth is, men were made to be tough and ignore a lot of things. But Physical intimacy speaks volumes to them. Since you are not a man, I can understand you not agreeing with me, or even understanding this perspective, but we men are designed to be able to “push” through the BS, and strive on. We really don’t need emotional support, but we definitely need physical intimacy.
I hope I haven’t lowered your thoughts of a man, but again, we men are highly efficient, taking the path of least resistance , in order to get to the final destination ASAP. We are Men.
In all fairness, he didn’t know that we got the list of 101 Ways to Respect Your Husband from research, from readers and their husbands, and from a well known acquaintance of mine, Shaunti Feldhahn. Her research says more than what he had to say, but I’m still seriously wondering what YOU think – can I trouble you to ask your husband what his thoughts are on this? Can you ask some of the other men in your life about it?
Can’t wait to hear what your reactions are to the above!!
Love to you,
