12 secrets women wish you knew (guys alert please!)
A Caring Guy Is a Hot Guy
Women appreciate a guy with a sensitive side, especially when they're upset. Put your arm around her and hand her a tissue. Nurturing is a powerful way to connect.
Chivalry Still Has a Place
When it comes to romance, many women do like men to take a traditional masculine role.She's perfectly capable of pulling out her own chair or opening a door but if you see her hesitate, she might just be waiting for you to be the gentleman.
Dress to Impress
It's important to women from the first flirtation through the honeymoon and beyond. "You've got to figure out if there's a certain look that she likes. "If she likes a guy in tight jeans, you wear tight jeans."
Don't Try to Fix Her World
When something's bothering her, she wants your ear, not your advice. "Men feel the need to fix things because they are solution-oriented,". "But to a woman, really listening is a wonderful, wonderful thing that deepens the relationship."
Nodding Is Not Enough
Listening is important, but she also wants to know that she is being heard. Nodding along won't cut it. When she pauses, she's giving you a cue to respond in a compassionate, caring way. If she tells you that she is upset because her boss gave her a tough time, she wants to hear you say "I'm sorry that work was such a drag for you today." And remember: Resist the urge to offer solutions.
Performance Anxiety Is Shared
When you have an off night and can't perform, she feels bad, too. She might worry that she no longer turns you on and she will want assurance that that is not true. She will want to talk about what's going on and what you are doing about it, especially if it's a recurring problem. "It's a touchy thing for both of you,". "but talking about it is a plus."
Mirroring Is a Barometer of Love
Remember the saying "imitation is the highest form of flattery"? A woman often conveys how she feels about you by mirroring your moods and moves. She may order a meal that pairs with yours, wear your favorite color, or smile or cross her arms when you do. Mimicking is her way of putting you at ease and letting you know she is charmed.
Your Shirt May Be a Love Magnet
Does your partner curl up in your sweater or sneak into your work shirt? Some researchers have found that the scent of a man's perspiration has a relaxing effect on women.
Say It, Again and Again
Women like to be told they look nice, and they like a man who notices without being told. When she's wearing a sexy new dress, for example, she'll give you major points for saying how hot she looks, especially if you mention the dress before she does. If she's looking particularly attractive, if she has a new haircut, if she's looking more fit -- let her hear about it.
Don't Fear the Relationship Talk
When your woman wants to talk about the relationship, it doesn't mean you did something wrong (well, not necessarily). many women like to talk about the "state of the union" -- what's going right, what's going wrong, or simply what's going on. This is a good thing. An honest, wide-ranging talk can bring the two of you closer.
Look Your Partner in the Eye
You may feel more comfortable sitting side by side, but many women prefer face time -- and we don't mean the latest mobile video chat technology. women prefer their men to make eye contact with them as they're talking. And looking her in the eye during sex will deepen the relationship outside the bedroom.
Romance Is Simple; Keep It Coming
Romance is something she will always want, whether you've been together two months or 20 years. Flowers, an intimate dinner, a few lines of love poetry.might sound cliché, but most women appreciate such simple romantic gestures and often show their appreciation after the lights go down.
