  1. This post has reall made my day! Here are my favorite points (and the ones I need to remind myself more often as well):

    I’ve got feelings too – try finding them
    If you think I’m a mind reader, I’m not: AWESOME!!!!
    I love seeing you naked. Leave the lights on sometimes
    Words like ‘Nothing is wrong’ just makes me frustrated: ME TOO!!!
    If you need some attention and I’m overlooking it, ask for it and I’ll be there for you: WHY DO I sometimes act as he should know everything?
    I like being touched
    And I love being groped
    And I really love you checking me out, with desire

    1. Another post that I’m so glad you enjoyed, Mariana.
      At the end of the day, guys like to be wanted just like you.
      They don’t want or need BS talk so just say it like is and be honest in what you say and elaborate about what you’re thinking.
      We’re simple creatures, don’t you think? hahaha

      1. Yeah, Martin! You’re right. This post reminded me of the book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. After reading this post it made me think that perhaps men and women are not so different… we are both humans, with feelings and emotions.

    1. Cool – I love Stacy’s site. Some truly great insights there and certainly recommended reading.
      So, I’ve listed 51 things that women need to digest and understand about what guys are thinking – what were the top 5 for you?

  2. The #6 is 110% correct. Sometimes, if not often, womens are like “Don’t do what I say, but what I ment to say.” Alright, how would we know what you would say, and not what you did? It’s quite annoying at times. With that said, nice list. Gave it a tweet :)

    1. Hey Marc – forgot to say thanks for stopping by and making a comment, so thanks :)
      Yeah, the mindreader thing still gets me haha
      Thanks for the tweet too

  3. I intended to hate this — because I usually hate such posts (and disagree with almost every point).

    You proved me wrong. I agree with almost all of them. And as a woman happily married to the same (amazing) man for over 27 years, I think I’m something of an authority. :)

    1. Welcome to you, Alison and thank you so much for a candid reply.
      It’s certainly OK to disagree with anything we offer in opinion and/or advice – that’s what a non-judgemental site is about.

      Even better that I hit the majority of points correctly, from a woman’s point of view. At least I’m learning some of the right things :)

      So now the question to you. Which ones didn’t you agree on. Those are the ones I’m more interested in knowing about and why you don’t agree too, if that’s OK to ask. Respect your reply.

  4. I loved 13, 26 and 39. Notice any pattern? I then looked for a just as good 52!
    Haha. I couldn’t find one, so I’ll just try adding one and you’ll tell me if I’m on the right path.
    52. Be feminine. Abandon yourself into the world we create for ourselves, and forget about everything else.
    Add 13, 26 and 52 together, and you’ll likely have some of your best time (with the right guy).

    I could probably expand this into a thousand word article explaining what I mean. Being feminine is just too complex of a subject to cover in a comment! It’s just like the “be yourself” tip, it can be misinterpreted in many ways! :)

    1. Ha so I got you stumped, hey, Andrew? :)

      Yeah it’s about keeping your space and remaining true to who you are, I think.
      As guys and gals, society places all this crap on us to be something we aren’t. I love being a guy, for all my failings. I also love being with a woman who can be a woman and not something she’s been told she should be like.

      Own your power, respect another’s power and act in harmony. It seldom happens which is a sad reflection on us as humans.

      Oh, if you’d like to expand in a guest post, we’d welcome you with open arms, mate.

  5. Hi Martin,

    I was thinking the same thing that your first commenter mentioned. How did you think up all these things. I like the one about dressing up and looking good for my partner. I sometimes fail in this respect because I can get lazy. Thanks for reminding me.

    I just met someone last year (our anniversary will be in May), and he is an awesome person. One of the things I love about him is his ability to talk about any issues that arise and to give me feedback. We work through any difficulties (not always easy, but we’re committed to each other), because life is just to short to worry about what will keep us apart. We are both searching and applying how we can stay together.

    At 60+ years, I think I’m finally in love for the first time in my life and really have an understanding on how to keep it moving forward. Great post, Martin! Sally

    1. Well, a huge huge welcome back, Sally.
      Fills my heart with utter joy that you’ve met ‘your guy’. Age doesn’t come into the equation. Gaining that level of love is worth the pain and past heartache, if you ask me.
      And all those 51 things come from my own historical experiences so I’ll wager the majority of them hold true for most guys. A great little roadmap for the ladies, if you ask me.

      Now tell me, where did you meet Mr Right?

  6. It must have taken quite some time and deep thought to come up with these 51 action points which looks like a comprehensive manual – it’s genious and I love it! My lips are sealed, adding anything to this list would be taking away from it.

    1. Haha thanks for your first visit and comment.
      Well, they didn’t take all that long at all to write down. I closed my eyes and write from history.
      Which one resonates with you the most though?
