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.


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
