There are 5 things that men must know about (most) women. Women desire to “feel” these things, not just know them logically. In her book, For Men Only, author Shaunti Feldhahn goes into great depth addressing these five, and a few others men need to know.
Men must know that:
1. Women want to feel loved. Many women feel insecure about our love for them. There are two things we men can do about it. First, reassure her. In times of conflict with our wives, we should tell them we love them no matter what and that everything will be okay—“I love you. We’ll get through this.” When she’s upset, she usually doesn’t need space, she needs a hug and to be held. Second, pursue her. Women need to be pursued throughout the relationship, just as we pursued them before we got married.
2. Women want to feel understood. Women need us to understand how they think and feel, even though that is hard. It would help us to understand that most women’s thought lives are like computers, with multiple windows open and processing all at once. Unlike many men who can only process one thing at a time, women are constantly juggling multiple thoughts and emotions all at the same time. They’re complex! Be patient.
Here is the complete list of the 5 Things Men Must Know About Women. We hope these principles are transformational in your relationship with your best friend.
