Listen ladies! Relationship wisdom from men

The men have spoken!


For a while now, women have wondered what it is that men want or prefer in relationships, why they behave the way they do and what some signs mean.

Well, a lady on Twitter by the name @Arp14_ asked men only to give women some relationship advice. They came through and dropped some wisdom.

Ladies take several seats and take notes of some relationship advice from a man’s perspective.

@pray4luve:
If a dude’s energy changes and he isn’t as attentive & caring, please be the Queen that you are and move on.
@BriantheBranana:
Your friends should never be treating you better/hyping you up more than the man you’re dating (meaning he needs to do better for you). Men can not be “stolen”, if they slept with someone else it’s because they WANTED to.
@TheFan4Life:
1. Keep your girlfriends out of your business. 2. Never compare your relationship to other people’s social media highlights. 3. Support his goals and dreams. 4. Set boundaries, standards and expectations from day one. 5. Pay attention to your senses. They never lie.
@talk_tycoon:
Don’t Take Relationship Advice From Your Single Friends and Family.
@hills_j:
Lay your standards out and don’t settle for nothing less from him. If he starts slipping check him. When we love you it’s nothing we won’t do to make you happy.
@natedaagreatt:
GUYS HAVE FEELINGS TOO. Sometimes we allow them to be suppressed but if we actually open up to you it means we trust you. Your response or reaction to that openness can either make us want you or throw us off.
@BBCinNoVA:
Giving him your love, body, and soul won’t keep him from cheating.
@Micael__Q:
Be understandable but don’t allow yourself to be disrespected Have some personal hobbies without having to include your bf.
@tinnyhefner:
Be more submissive. A real man wants a submissive woman. Starting arguments and being demanding is not the way.
@Mr_Brown_Sir:
Never sacrifice your sanity for the sake or idea of love for no man.
@QuestMalloy:
Don’t lose yourself in the relationship. You are still an individual, and should have goals and dreams that are not contingent on or subject to your relationship.
@rdrnd91:
Making a man feel greatly appreciate will get you EVERYTHING.
@yjhowler:
Find a man who IS the man you want, not CAN BE. Stop breaking your back trying to change us. We change when it’s our time.
@UsernameLos:
Simple stuff, if he’s not doing it then you aren’t the one and that goes for anyone. Stop letting people condition you for abuse. If you point out a behavior or how something mad you feel and their response is to argue/get defensive or cut off access to them just dead it.
@maraoh__:
Timing is very important. Find good moods to address anything on the mind.
@JoeMikeMarkz:
Stop forcing your man to get rid of his female friends.
@washingtondame:
Don’t believe who he seems to be until after the 3rd or fourth month. That’s his representative you’ve been seeing. It normally wears off around then and he can’t keep up the good guy act if it isn’t in him to begin with.
@TroyAdlibb:
Most of the time Men will show you their true colors, stop ignoring the signs when we present them.
@kito_hodge:
There is a time to talk and a time to listen. When your man is telling you something try to listen not actively respond.
@eqow_mclean:
You may be a good woman and still not be a good pair for him. That’s very ok. It doesn’t diminish your worth or mean you’re not good enough. Accept this and learn to move on from there and don’t push your goodness on him.
Straight from the men’s mind to your eyes! What you do with this information is wholly up to you.
