That we are PEOPLE just like yourselves -- not aliens from Venus, not lunatics, not half-wits, not things. We just view the world from a slightly different angle, which you may find interesting and amusing at times, just as we find the male point of view interesting and amusing.

Beyond that...you know the wise old saying, don't you? What does a woman want? To have her own way. wink

biggrin

Oh, that's just taking the easy way out. laughing

Seriously, though. Flowers, candy, etc., are no substitute for a meeting of minds and hearts.

Actually, the video is a decent start at an answer.

But I noticed that the original question was phrased in terms of how a man should talk. You could gather all the data and read all the books and learn to say just the right things. But if you say all the right things because they're the right thing then you might lose track of you. If she does the same thing and tries to do and say all the right things, then it'll be like a play about relationships instead of something real.

Well, I can't speak for all women, but I do love good food. Not really a sweet tooth though. ;)

Marge, my comment was intended in jest.

Since the thread is asking answers of the women, the obvious question I have is this: does the woman want a man like Joseph? Not that I am.

It just seems to me that not many women really think of St Joseph as an exemplar of a spouse they seek. That is, those that seek a spouse. It seems that it's always been the case, for likely two main reasons. Most men do not exemplify him as few likely can achieve the level of being a near perfect spouse & foster father. Could he have been a perfect earthly spouse & father? Or is it that women would rather have a much less perfect spouse but just with the attributes that would serve the woman well?

Now, the stretch question: what were the attributes of St Joseph?

Well, I thought this thread would really take off, with a lot of comments of what women want, but it hasn't.

To be more serious, I think women want someone who loves them as Christ loved the Church and as his own body. Women want someone who loves and respects them, not someone who looks down on them (benevolently or not.) They want to feel loved, cherished, protected etc. Maybe the thread didn't take off because all of this seems kind of obvious. (Well, it does to me anyway.)

St. Joseph's example is good, but he was not preserved from original sin. Christ's example is perfect. I think both men and women ought to imitate his example in marriage but since I'm typing on my phone, I'll leave it at that for now.

One last thing though. Look at how Jesus treats women in the Gospels. Even today it's a breath of fresh air. A man who imitated his example could not go wrong.
