Men are exotic creatures with great upper body strength and a poor self-image that continually needs feeding and stoking. They have this strange blind spot when it comes to women, probably because they don’t pay attention when we talk. Even Freud asked, “What do women want?” And he had all those women on his couch telling him. So if he didn’t know, how can we expect the average man to figure out what we want.
Rule Number 11. Men find themselves the most fascinating subject of any conversation. Let him talk about himself, and he’ll think you’re a brilliant conversationalist.
Rule Number 13. Laugh at his wit, and he’ll admire your sense of humor.
Rule Number 15. Let him know you think he’s intelligent and he’ll be awed by your perspicacity, even if he can’t pronounce the word.
Rule Number 80. Men have always drooled over beautiful women, but there’s no point obsessing. There are plenty of women who starve themselves to perfection, work out every day and sit home every night, while at any supermarket you will find lots of women who are fat, feisty and married. You’ve got to keep things in perspective.
