What Men Wished Women Knew

Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don't work.

Sometimes, we're not thinking about you. Live with it.

Anything we said 6 or 8 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.

Anything you wear is fine. Really.

Christopher Columbus didn't need directions, and neither do we.

You have too many shoes.

If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

Mark anniversaries on a calendar.

A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad and angry, we meant the other one.

You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done - not both.

You have enough clothes.

Mary!

This is right on!
Perfect!
No objections!


But there is one little problem. Even if all women knew all of the above, it would not change their behavior by one iota.

It’s not what we know; it’s what we act upon.

P.S. Men are the same way. : )

Sad but true, Mary and Vince!
P.S. I have a character in my new medieval WIP named Vincz. He has narcolepsy. Guess which one of the seven dwarfs he is.

Vince, I told you the men would get their turn. :)
