Rate this book. Clear rating Steve Harvey, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment. Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is a book by Steve Harvey which describes for women Harvey's concept of what men really think about love, relationships. Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man is Steve Harvey's book to teach women how men think. You can use that knowledge to secure a man.
Whether or not we need to discuss something important or just feel like talking to the men in our lives, Mr. Harvey says men are uninterested in talking to us about our feelings… our female friends are in our lives for this purpose. My imagination began to get the best of me, as I started to envision such a relationship… wife comes home from work, gives her husband a quick peck on the lips and runs for her cell phone to tell her closest female friend all about her day.
Is that what living with another is supposed to be about, Mr.
Furthermore, is this what women are rushing down the aisle for? Women need to understand that regardless of your busy schedule sex needs to go down, and regularly, or else you are sending him into the arms of another woman, explains Mr. And here is the biggest excitement of it all!
The most disturbing part of the book is his discussion on self worth. After reading that very statement, I threw this book into a bonfire.
Well, in my mind I did. Harvey, you have thousands of women around the country hooked on the ideas in your book, and I can almost guarantee that not one of those women is one step closer to a relationship because of your outdated ideology.
Ladies, have confidence in your own personal abilities!!! And you, in the meantime, win the ultimate prize of maintaing your dignity and self-esteem, and earning the respect of the man who recognized that you were worth the wait.
The first step, I think, is to get over the fear of losing a man by confronting him.
Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man
Just stop being afraid, already. The most successful people in this world recognize that taking chances to get what they want is much more productive than sitting around being too scared to take a shot.
The same philosophy can be applied to dating: Because that fear can trip you up every time; all too many of you let the guy get away with disrespecting you, putting in minimal effort and holding on to the commitment to you because you're afraid he's going to walk away and you'll be alone again.
And we men? We recognize this and play on it, big time.
It is your right to expect that a man will pay for your dinner, your movie ticket, your club entry fee, or whatever else he has to pay for in exhange for your time. SVU look like counting lessons on Sesame Street.
So women need to realease themselves from the blame of a cheating man's actions-just do that for yourselves. Because holding on to that baggage can be paralyzing; it can cripple you and keep you from performing in your next encounter. You simply cannot drive forward if you're focused on what's happening in the rearview mirror.
Tell him straight up: I need you to be the head of this family. Don't hate the player, hate the game. When a man approaches you you're the one with total control over the situation-whether he can talk to you, download you a drink, dance with you, get your number, take you home, see you again, all of that.
We certainly want these things from you; that's why we talked to you in the first place. But it's you who decides if you're going to give us any of the things we want, and how, exactly, we're going to get them.
Where you stand in our eyes is dictated by YOUR control over the situation. Every word you say, every move you make, every signal you give to a man will help him determine whether he should try to play you, be straight with you, or move on to the next woman to do a little more sport fishing. I became the man she needed me to be because she had sense enough to have requirements-standards that she needed in her relationship in order to make the relationship work for her.
She knew she wanted a monogamous relationship-a partnership with a man who wanted to be a dedicated husband and father. She also knew this man had to be faithful, love God, and be willing to do what it took to keep this family together. On a smaller scale she also made it clear that she expected to be treated like a lady at every turn-I'm talking opening car doors for her, pulling out her seat when she's ready to sit at the table, coming correct on anniversary, Mother's Day, and birthday gifts, keeping the foul talk to a minimum.
These requirements are important to her because they lay out a virtual map of what I need to do to make sure she gets what she needs and wants. After all, it's universal knowledge that when mama is happy, everybody is happy. And it is my sole mission in life to make sure Marjorie is happy.
This, I think, is a great analogy for how men seek out women.And we men? If you're going to get into a relationship with a man, you should know what his plans are and how they fit into the key elements that make a man—who he is, what he does, and how much he makes.
Act Like a Lady? Think Like Myself!
Some of them have as many women as some of my celebrity friends, and the women they run game on are just as fine as some of the supermodels clinging to the arms of stars.
Does he want a family?
These next two questions should be asked after you've been talking and dating for a while. If you are a fine piece of ass and don't mind fucking often you are a keeper.
