What Women Want

Saturday, March 13, 2010

So I gave some tips on how to keep your man happy... and now it's time for what the ladies want from the men.  
(Ok, at least this is what I would like and yes, sometimes get.)

#1 - The wake up call.  It's the first thing I hear in the morning... Feel Like Making Love (that is his ring tone on my phone and it plays..."Baby when I think about you, I think about love.")  He calls me every morning to say Good Morning.  I look forward to that call every week day (because I get to hear it in person on weekends) and it always starts my day off right.

#2 - The unexpected lunch date.  It's been a while since this has happened but it's the highlight of my day when I get to take a break from the craziness of work and enjoy a meal sitting right across from my man.  It doesn't matter if it's chick-fil-a, San Marcos or Cracker Barrel... I always have a wonderful afternoon after sharing a meal and endless smiles with him.  And if I'm lucky or have been especially good, we both take off the rest of the afternoon and enjoy a day of window shopping together. 

#3 - Roses.  Yes, I said roses.  The first date Terry and I had, he brought me a rose.  And for my birthday, he gave me roses.  I saved the first date rose and one of my birthday roses.  If I get any more roses, I will do the same and take one from each vase I get and save it with the others.  Drying them takes about a week but whenever I see them, it brings back memories of when and how I received them.

#4 - Huggin', cuddlin' and snugglin'.  Yeah, yeah - the passionate stuff.  To say "I love you" is one thing but to show "I love you" is another.  Not all women love to cook, clean, etc. but I do.  I'm a southern woman and that is how I was raised.  The men are the main provider and yes, I know women work, too.  However, it's my pleasure to cook a home cooked meal and have it ready when my man comes home from work.  The best feeling in the world is when he walks in the door and comes straight to the kitchen to me.  He hugs me, kisses me and tells me how good it smells.  Now I'm sure your asking, "what does this have to do with what women want?"  After our dinner, we always snuggle up on the couch and watch TV.  And if it's not a week night... I get the pleasure cuddling up in bed with him and having late night conversations.  That's the time that I love the most.

#5 - Make me feel like I'm the only woman on earth.  Before I entered into this amazing relationship that I am in, I use to go to dinner with my parents and stare at couples having dinner.  You could tell if the guy was in to the girl.  If he was staring off into outer-space and there was no conversation - I knew exactly what the poor girl sitting across from him was going through.  I've been there and it sucks.  But then to see a couple who are both staring at each other, smiling, laughing and talking... made me realize that was what I wanted to experience in my next relationship.  Fortunately, I got it.  Reread #2.  When walking together or standing next to each other... holding my hand or placing your hand on the small of my back reassures me that I am yours and you want no one else.  Making me feel like I am your possession and you would have no one do any harm to me makes me feel like I'm the luckiest women in the world.

To sum things up... yeah, we love the tangible things but it's the small things that we adore.
