Romancing A Guy? Really?

August 15, 2009

I hate to harp on Glamour Magazine (well, not really, I actually enjoy it), but c’mon, this month’s issue has an article called “The Real Way To Romance A Guy” (Its on page 178). The title alone undermines the entire credibility of the article.

Ladies, it’s time to face reality: you don’t romance a guy! Guys romance women, not the other way around. Somewhere along the line, someone erroneously applied the golden rule to intimacy, and it stuck. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” That works in the business world, and it may work in a friendship, but between the sheets (or anything that would get you there), it’s not gonna fly.

Read any woman’s mag, and it will tell you that women love the drawn bath, flower petals, perfumes, long massages, tender notes, and the list goes on and on. And men get that. But we don’t do it so we can get the same treatment in return. We don’t want to have the same thing done unto us. We do it because we want to have ourselves “done” in return.

Here’s a tip, a little insight, if you will, into what a man would like. Lets say you have just put the kids down to bed, and you are fairly certain they are now sleeping. Your man is downstairs watching TV, or maybe you are the one watching TV and he has just finished putting the kids to sleep (for women, that’s a good gig, if you can get it). Anyway, when the two of you are finally alone on the couch turn to him and say “You know, I really don’t have it in me to have sex tonight, and SportsCenter is going to be on in about 15 minutes. How about I just go down on you really quick so we can catch the scores before going to bed.”

Trust me, that will get his attention, and he’ll be wrapped around your finger for good. Bottom line: you don’t romance a man, you “hook” him.

Good Luck.
