12. “Men also need a massage”
It is a woman’s dream to have a man who’ll be easy to give her massages; when she comes home after a long day, he rubs her shoulders, massages her feet, tends to her tension when she is pregnant. Men have tensions too, let your feminine hands detonate those bombs of tension.
13. “Men also need a spouse who initiates sex”
It is often assumed that men think about sex constantly and so it is up to the man to initiate sex. But lady, your spouse will love it when you take control once in awhile.

15. “Men also need that surprise phone call or text”

18. “Men also need financial gestures”
It is expected that the man is to be the provider, with many women saying ‘His money is our money, my money is my money’.

19. “Men also need to be asked ‘How was your day?”
Women expect the man to want to find out how their day has been and if they are OK. But lady, do you also seek to find out how your man has been and is?
20. “Men also need rescuing”
Men are expected to be always strong, to man up, to keep it together and to have the answers. But sometimes men lose their way, men get beaten down by life, sometimes men need saving. Lady, if you expect him to be Superman to you, be Superwoman to him; he is only human, no matter how tough a face he wears. Be each other’s support system.
