Ep. 93: 6 Things Women Need to Know About Men: Suzanne

Ladies, do you wish someone would have told you the things you had to learn the hard way about men? I don’t know about you, but I wish I’d known the things I’m going to tell you when I was first married. If you know how men think, and you become fluent in their language, your marriage or relationship will be exponentially stronger.

So for those who have a strong desire to understand men, I’m going to discuss in this episode six things you need to know about men that will change the entire course of your relationship.

IN THIS EPISODE:

3:00  Men are easy to please and quick to forgive

3:30  Men are simple and have far fewer needs than women do. Respect, companionship and sex are the basics

4:15   A man’s identity is inextricably linked to his ability to provide and protect

5:00 When a woman makes considerably more than her husband it’s a tougher road for the marriage.

6:20  Since women are not wired to provide and protect, their reaction to being the primary breadwinner is very different from a man’s

7:15   The result of a shift in economic power usually shows itself negatively in the bedroom

8:30   Men can only concentrate on one thing at a time

9:00  The truth about “multitasking” is not superior

10:20  The fact that men can only do one thing at a time is something to admire

11:10  Men need time to process their emotions. Leave them alone while they do

13:15  Men don’t like to fight with women

15:29  Learn to talk less and move slower

16:50  Men don’t just want sex—they NEED it

17:20  A married man whose wife doesn’t like sex or who won’t have sex will either seek it elsewhere or suffer in silence

19:40  Men have a physical need for sex that women do not
