7 Things Women Wish Men Knew

There are two kinds of men in the world: one who thinks he’s got women all figured out and one who has absolutely no clue what’s going on. Most, if not all, men go crazy trying to figure out what’s going in inside a woman’s head. There has been a constant pursuit of seeking and understanding women and what they’re all about. And a lot of men think that most ladies are just being coy about it and are intentionally keeping men in the dark.

Understand, though, that women desperately want to be understood by their men. It drives them just as crazy and frustrates them to no end whenever their men just don’t seem to get them.

Here are some things that women want men to understand about them:

1. Sometimes she just needs someone who will listen to her and not try to solve her problems for her.
Men, we know you’re all natural problem-solvers. That’s ingrained in your nature. You’re good at it. However, whenever a woman pours her heart out to you or vents her frustrations, don’t feel like you need to give her solutions to her problems. Most of the time, she just needs someone to listen to her. If she needs your help, she will ask for it.

2. Nodding and saying “Okay” do not make for good communication.
Communication is vital in any relationship and almost every woman is all about communication. Constant and open communication, no matter how ugly talking about the truth is, helps her feel secure about the relationship, whether you talk about serious matters or trivial things. Body language and one-word answers just won’t suffice.

3. Don’t make everything about sex.
One thing you men need to know about women is they love sex as much as you do. They’re just not as vocal about it but they do. And they don’t make everything they do for you revolve around getting some action in the bedroom.

They will appreciate it if you do the same thing. Just because you do something nice for her doesn’t always mean you will be rewarded in the bedroom. If you want to do something nice for her, do it with no strings attached. Do it just because she matters to you and you want to serve her. Period.

4. They also get anxious when you “perform” poorly.
As mentioned in the previous point, women love sex as much as men do, So when things don’t pan out when you’re doing your thing in the bedroom, she gets frustrated as much as you do.

If your health condition affects your sex life, she gets anxious and worried about it, too. If your physical condition is a concern, you might want to consider GAINSWave therapy or treatment. Talk to a specialist about it. Don’t be ashamed of it, especially if it will help make your relationship better.

5. They will never get sick of hearing you appreciate them.
Most men believe that women are such complicated creatures because they’re so hard to please. On the contrary, women are pretty simple. Just compliment her endlessly about the way she looks and you’re sure to make her day.

If she gets a new do or puts on a new dress or tries on new make-up, compliment her. Be as generous as you can with your praises. Make her feel that she is the most beautiful woman in your eyes. You will never go wrong with this one.

6. Men don’t need to be afraid of “the relationship talk.”
Men, whenever women say “We need to talk,” you get that look on your face as if you’re being sent to the principal’s office.

When your girl throws you that line, don’t be afraid. All she wants is to talk about your relationship more seriously. She needs to know that you’re taking it as seriously as she does and talks like this give her an assurance that you value her and your relationship with her.

7. Women still like to be swept off their feet.
The world we live in today has given such a great emphasis on gender equality. You have advocates for women’s rights and all that. However, despite all the “girl power” movement going on today, women are still women and they still want to be swept off their feet with acts of chivalry.

They are forced to step up and become strong because men have stepped back and faded to the background. This apathetic mode has made women take up men’s places but in reality, they would rather still have the men lead them and make them swoon. No matter how strong a woman is, she is still a romantic at heart at the end of the day and that is something that will never change.

We hope that we have given you a clearer understanding of what goes on inside women’s heads. Men, use this knowledge to your advantage not to collect as many women as you can but to treasure and protect the most important lady in your life.
