â€¢ Learn how to ride. Men get tired of being on top all the time.
These are just tips, some extreme, some realistic. You get the point.
2. Home Cooking
Now I was going to say â€œfoodâ€ but that is too vague. Girl, get in that kitchen and cook a hot meal. No microwave, no frozen dinner, no canned food either. Donâ€™t slave in the kitchen for hours. Go to Barnes & Noble and get a Rachel Ray 30 Minute Meals cookbook and whip up a well balanced dinner: meat/protein, starch, veggie. No, it doesnâ€™t have to be every night, once or twice is good enough (if you arenâ€™t married or donâ€™t have kids). Ladies, you donâ€™t know how sexy men think walking in and seeing a woman from the back standing at the counter stirring something up. It drives them wild. Itâ€™s that mommy/nurturing complex. Cooking exemplifies how much you care about his, and your, well-being, strength and body. Believe it or not, it is a sign of love.
3. Take Care of a House
This may seem broad but, really, it means keep a clean house. There is nothing more disgusting than a nasty ass woman. This means dishes in the sink, crusty panties balled in the corner, magazines everywhere. Men notice everythingâ€”that snotty tissue that missed the garbage can?â€” everything. Most wonâ€™t say anything but they are taking notes. We on the other hand will walk in their house and let it be known, â€œThis place is a mess!â€ but they donâ€™t care because they know when they get married or move in with a woman, she isnâ€™t going to let the house get that bad. Ladies if you plan on moving in with a man be prepared to be somewhat of an interior designer and the woman of the house.
* Honorable Mention â€“ Conversation / Intelligence
When I ran this list down to a man friend of mine he agreed 100% but told me that he needs a woman with whom he can have a conversation. I thought that was implied but he assured me that it needed to be said. If your mate is in the world of business, you should know something about the world of business, read WSJ.com or the NY Times, have an educated opinion on politics, sports, etc. Challenge him on his views and donâ€™t give up so easily. Men like to know they are with someone that can make them stop and think. Another man friend told me that when he is meeting this one woman for drinks and dinner, he brings a post-it note and pen because she always hits him with something during conversation that he wants to go back and research.
I know folks are going to get on here and blast this list as a traditional, rigid way of women being second-class to men and not every man wants this blah, blah, blah. Look at this list as a foundation, a skeleton that you can build on any way that you want. However, try having a relationship where after bad boring sex, you heat up Chinese food leftovers that you two eat out the box ’cause all your dishes are piled up in the sink and see how long he sticks around.
