The Truth About Men; The Secret Side of the Opposite Sex

The Truth About Men; The Secret Side of the Opposite Sex

Ratings: (0)|Views: 126|Likes:
Men don’t have glass heads.  What’s going on in there? Do they mean what they say?  And what are they not saying? Why does anyone in a relationship with a man have to spend so much time wondering what things “mean”? Is it good that he called instead of texting?  What does it mean that he introduced me to his sister but not his mother or his best friend?  Why hasn’t he said anything about my birthday yet when it’s two weeks from now?Finally, a man who knows what’s going on in there has written a book to decode men for you. It’s rich with insight and action you can take today to make your relationship better tomorrow.  Smith’s fascinating, sometimes surprising topics include:--The Subtle Art of Hooking Us (men really do want to be in committed relationships, even if they don’t always show it) --Beauty Matters (but beauty may not be exactly what you think it is)--Beware of Titles (why you shouldn’t label yourself his “girlfriend” until certain conditions are met) --Sex is More Powerful than an AK-47 (but it doesn’t always have to be a home run)--Mean What You Say (and why sex lies are always—always—a bad idea)--Know how to Listen and What we Care About (it doesn’t matter if you buy the yellow pillows or the blue pillows but that doesn’t mean you don’t matter) Any man who picks up The Truth About Men will nod in agreement, and any woman who puts its insights into practice will have an instantly happier mate and a stronger, longer relationship.

ET’S START WITH
a simple truth. Men don’t want to feel likethey’re being hooked, especially in the beginning of a rela-tionship. This has something to do with our innate desire forfreedom and our need to feel like we’re in control. Not to say that we’re not open to the idea of settling down and being satisfied ina monogamous relationship with you, but the second we detect that these are your intentions, we either stop returning yourphone calls or start figuring out ways to escape without hurtingyour feelings. Understanding the basics of how we think in thissituation will go a long way toward producing the results that youdesire. So don’t judge what follows as being po litically incorrect 
THEFIRST
THE SUBTLE ART OF HOOKING US
There’s a big misperception that men never want to be incommitted relationships if we can help it, and that we prefer tohave the freedom to date a harem of women. Not so. We want tobe in a committed relationship, but it has to be with the rightwoman at the right time.
