    This is so true and yet so unfortunate. Men think WE are the crazy and difficult ones but the fact is that they are the most insecure beings on the planet. I've dated for many years and have come to this conclusion. I've met many different kind of people over the years but have never experienced any Woman who NEEDs so much as a man does. Which makes pleasing them so easy. Just give em a good piece of ass on a regular basis, give em an occaisional compliment and ever now and then tell them something nice about their penis; you don't even have to mean it or enjoy it...they don't care as long as they THINK you are happy that's all that matters.

    It's actually quite a mindless task ladies.

    I made the mistake of telling my (ex) ONE time... "hey, she's just checked you out!" Now, he's with her, and I'm left thinking I should have kept MY mouth SHUT! ;)

    I was going to add before my fingers slipped that I got more ego pumps from a weekend fling than I got from my ex-wife from 13 years of marriage. No wonder the marriage went south. It's fine to inform us of our "areas for self-improvement" once in a while, but let's try to balance that out with a compliment from time to time.

    I'm surprised to NOT see a comment in this list pertaining to how INTELLIGENT a woman thinks her man is! Yes, we like men to be strong (unscrew this lid for me), attractive (to us and others) and sexually/romatically adept, but don't men also enjoy hearing how SMART we think they are? I absolutely love it when my husband "knows stuff about stuff", whether it be random sports trivia or the lyrics from a song I loved 22 years ago... and when I tell him this, he gets all gushy about it. Men are SUPPOSED to be smart out in the big, bad business world, but I think they'd also appreciate hearing it from their women. Guys opinions on this?

    Men love to hear how handsome they look. I always tell my husband what a great lover he is and how much I appreciate him. They need to hear this. Don't forget to tell him every day how much you love him.

    Like jhayward, I agree with most of the article, but again - I don't want to be misled. Honest appreciation and compliments go a long way toward making your partner feel loved, needed and wanted. Both men and women want to hear nice things about themselves - but don't overdo it - it will sound insincere, and your partner will wonder why you are blowing smoke up their rear end...
