5 things women want in men

Nairobi - Not need, but women need men around us because they make
us feel good, make us better, and they bring us gifts. But at times for us
women it gets to a point where the material stuff does not matter but what he
does when you take everything else out of the equation. Last week I wrote about
men we lower our requirements for. These are the ones;
He wakes me up to take
off my make-up
Girls can get home at times and just forget themselves. We
get home and we just fall asleep. This man knows it is not good for me to sleep
with my make up on. He can just put me to bed like every other guy but he takes
the risk of me lashing out and ensures I wash my face before I sleep. When I
wake up in the morning he is going to have his breakfast ready because he
remembered something important.
A man who knows not to
shout at me because I am a terrible driver
Do you know the first rule of alcoholics anonymous? You
cannot fix it, if you do not admit to it. I am a bad driver. My sense of
direction makes a compass look like a grid lock. The reason why the men around
me are patient with me is because I admit to it and not get mad when I am given
direction. You do not have to have a shouting match with your man; men are
patient as long as you allow them to be.
He remembers when am
sad at the supermarket and gets me that chocolate I don’t need to eat when am
on some diet but the diet does not matter to him.
Women stress themselves over things they need to eat and how
they need to keep in shape so that they age like a certain Ms. Angela Basset.
To most guys who love their women the last thing on their mind is your diet but
just how to make you feel good. Chocolate or some other favorite works. That
man will get it for you and when you are done eating he will still be there
when you rant about eating it.
He knows when am tired
Tired to cook, tired to do laundry, tired to clean and tired
to even go to his house on foot. He will figure it out because it gets to a
point my brain just stops working and someone else needs to figure it out and
not because I am pregnant. I am just tired.
He agrees with me
because this is not the time to make a point
Maybe I am talking about my family or my job or client or my
boss. There are just times we do not need you to give a solution but just to
listen to a stupid hypothesis and when we wake up in the morning and realize it
was dumb; you just need to get me coffee or nod. A nod is good. You can make a
point but that will get something thrown at you.
Do not stick around for a man who does not make you feel a
special type of way. Men are there, you just have to learn to let go of the
wants and get the needs first. It is all about hierarchy and what you put
