The results are in and I want to share them with you.  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I know that you are looking to give a unique gift to the love of your life.  Why not pick one of the following 13 items and surprise your man with promise to renew an area in your marriage where it might have gotten a little…sloppy?

So here goes. Men like:

1.         A self-confident woman, one who is confident in her own skin. Whether she is wearing stilettos or Air Jordan runners, she happy with herself and life. A woman who exudes confidence is totally irresistible in her husband’s eyes.

2.         A women who treats men with the respect that they have earned. Nothing gives a man more self confidence than being treated by respect by the woman he loves.

3.         Consistent temperament. A man loves it when he does not have to guess what woman is going to show up in the morning. Men are not good at reading moods or trying to figure out what is going on in your head.

4.         A woman who maintains her intellectual curiosity by reading or learning new skills. Men love a woman who can establish creative ideas and give a new and fresh perspective. This shows that she will not get bored with life and it makes both of you happier.

5.         A woman who has high standards and maintains them. One who has good manners, values and does not waste time and money by being swept away by the latest fads. Instead, pursuing good values and growing in her faith.

6.         A spirit of generosity toward other women.  Speaking well of other women and not gossiping or be being “catty.”

7.         A woman who is supportive and encouraging. It is a known fact that men are empowered by their ego but a man needs to know that he has done well at work, cooked a good meal or is dealing well with a difficult life issue.

8.         Be accommodating. For the most part women are more organized and men and don’t like anyone messing with their plan or schedule. But men love it when women don’t freak out when things don’t go as planned and are flexible enough to live in the moment and go with the flow.

9.         Women who don’t obsess over their “getting ready” schedule or appearance. Men like it when we take care about how we look, but not when we need constant assurance that we’re ok.

10.       A woman who is health conscious and takes care of her spiritual, emotional and physical health.

11.       Women who ask thought provoking questions. Many women don’t want to ask the hard questions because are afraid of looking stupid. But many men love to be challenged by entering into interesting conversations.

12.       Women who don’t bash men. You know what I’m talking about.

13.       Women who do not manipulate through emotions or drama. Say it like you mean it with clear words that men can understand.

A marriage becomes strong and beautiful when we learn to understand each other’s needs and values.  Strangely enough, when we make a determined effort to become more loving toward our spouses…they will become more loving toward us.


Love is in the air..I can feel it.
