Guys, my apologies with the female focused articles lately, but with menopause being such a hot topic lately and my being pregnant it was inevitable. Allow me to make it up to you with this series dedicated to helping you keep your honey happy. After all a happy wife = happy life, right?! These tips are applicable to your girlfriend too…Unless you want to STAY single.
Over delicious Chinese cuisine I asked my husband, “Ry, what is your secret sauce for keeping me so happy?”
Here is what my man had to say. These tips are in no particular order.
Secret sauce #1: Be a gentleman! No matter how funny you think your burps and farts are, they are NOT amusing to her. Plus, you don’t want to open this door. Why? Watch this video.
And guys, don’t just be a gentleman to your special lady, treat all ladies with respect and dignity. Open their doors (especially car doors),follow her up the stairs and lead her down,always walk closest to the curb,women should enter and exit the elevator first, don’t swear, pay the tab and be a generous tipper, don’t leave the bathroom toilet seat up and more importantly don’t leave the bathroom stinky.
My wife’s biggest pet peeve is when I try to share my attention with her and my phone. She named my phone “the other woman” – ouch! I’m in training with this one. She’ll patiently wait to finish her thought until I “put her down”. Do yourself a favor, and put “her” (the phone) down and give her your undivided attention.
What if your woman is not used to this treatment? You’ll need to rewire her to start expecting it, because you love her and she deserves to be treated like a queen. Jessica doesn’t even try to open doors anymore, because she knows I’m going to get them for her. We were at Lumes having Sunday breakfast a few weeks ago and afterward we walked out to the truck and I opened her door. An older lady saw it and she was smiling ear to ear and said “What a gentleman, I never see that any more. You keep that up, she’s a lucky girl!”
My beautiful wife had another great point about how your relationship will benefit by you being a gentleman…
Jessica Zirbes: “What do women struggle with the most? Self-esteem. So by you treating your woman like a queen, she will start to feel more confident and loved. Ryan and I get looks all the time as I wait by the door for him to open it. I feel so special!”
Love is an action word…DO IT…Tell her …Show her……Everybody wins!
I left a few off this list as a test, gentlemen what did I miss?
