Men are from Mars 10 Ways To Understand Your Man Better

Men and women are such an enigma to each other so here are some tips to help you understand the inner workings of a man.

  • Published:

Guys and girls are totally different, i mean besides the obvious. We handle and interpret situations pertaining to the opposite sex very differently and this causes chaos from time to time.

Understanding women is a task no man should embark on because its a lost cause, half the time ladies are controlled by raging hormones, but men on the other hand are much simpler to comprehend, with a lot of patience of course. Its also important to remember that not all guys are jerks and will behave badly just because your Ex did.

Here are 10 things to help you understand men better.

  • Sacrifice : If he gives up something to be with you like skip a soccer game, or an afternoon nap, he must consider you relevant enough so dont take his affection for granted. 
  •  Take it as it is : Guys are not one to blurt out how they feel about a girl because lets face it, alot of them are on the prowl for as many ladies out there as they can capture, so when he says he is really into you, chances is he is being honest.
  • Personality not looks : When a guy spots a girl, he is attracted to her by her physical appearance and no matter how how she is, it's her personality that will keep him or drive him away. So when you decide to look down on your Ex because you feel your replacement is not as pretty as you are, chances she has a better personality than you did.
  • Choice of adjectives : Guys have various adjectives and colloquialisms they use to describe girls from hot, to sexy, to set amongst several others but the rare time he uses ‘beautiful’ to describe a lady, he must really like her.
  • Just Listen : Not all guys will let their guard down and open up to you, tell you their problems. so when he does, be there to lend a shoulder, its not a time to wear your fix-it hat and proffer solutions just listen to him.
  • Leave your past in the past : It is and will forever be a turn off for you to bring up your Ex in a conversation with your present .
  •  Guys are like little boys : Just how little kids test their parents reaction when they are naughty, guys test a girls reaction. Its now up to you to call them to order and let them know how far is too far.
  • Be straightforward : Just as a guy who is really into you will wear his big boy pants and tell you upfront that he likes you, you also have to be crisp and clear to a guy. Tell him exactly what you want especially during a break up because he doesn't get the message, chances he’ll show up at your doorstep the next day .
  • Guys need their boy time : Being with their girlfriend works for guys, but they need to still be in touch with their guy friends, don't emasculate him by making him tag you along every time.
  • Intimacy : Sure girls like to be cuddled and held a lot but who says guys don't too. Guys don't like to do all the work, so one night, cuddle him ,make the first move in the bedroom, be on top for a change. Guys like a girl who goes after what she wants.
