What do Women Want?

“How to handle a woman?
There’s a way,” said the wise old man,
“A way known by ev’ry woman
Since the whole rigmarole began.”
“Do I flatter her?” I begged him answer.
“Do I threaten or cajole or plead?
Do I brood or play the gay romancer?”
Said he, smiling: “No indeed.
How to handle a woman?
Mark me well, I will tell you, sir:
The way to handle a woman
Is to love her…simply love her…
Merely love her…love her…love her.”- Frederick Loewe, from the musical Camelot

For some men, relationships with women can be frightening to a certain degree. You want to please your lady, but her interests may be very different than your work buddies. I belive guys who grew up amongst sisters have an easier time relating to women, because they are less afraid. They already have a brother/ sister relationship. It can be a whole new world of communication for some, since men and women do differ in desires and even in communication. However, it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you think. I included the lyrics from “How to Handle a Woman?” from the musical Camelot. Arthur is asking Merlin for advice on what he should do with Geneviere. Basically, Merlin’s advice was to be yourself and simply love her!

Here are some ways you can show your affection:

  • Show her that you really care:
    A woman likes to feel appreciated. Tell her all the things you enjoy about her often. If you can’t muster up the words, send a note in a text, or email, or even the old fashioned way, a letter or car.
  • Fill her life with surprises:
    Be spontaneous at times! The dull and the routine life of a woman can make her really depressed. She expects her man to be full of surprises. Take your woman for a surprise vacation and they will love it. Plan all things ahead and just take her there. She will cherish that for a long time.
  • Cook for her:
    A woman would love it if you cook her breakfast or a meal. Let her rest for a day and cook the meals yourself. If you haven’t had much experience cooking or don’t have a whole lot of time with your work schedule, get a crock pot and try some easy and delicious crock pot recipes. Check out
