    Re: Valentines suggestions fella's

    One month shy of 43 years ago, I was so proud of myself for remembering my first anniversary. I stopped by Eckert's (drug store) and picked up the most expensive gift they had, a Water Pik (for cleaning teeth) and presented it to my bride, with a big smile. She looked at it, looked at me, and sweetly spoke, "Are my teeth dirty? Do I have bad breath?"

    The next year, I was mulling this over, while working as a land surveyor, along a county road, next to a cemetery. I saw a bunch of plastic yellow roses that had been tossed in the road ditch after a year or so of exposure to the elements. For a joke, I picked them up and stuck them in a 'No Deposit - No Return' Coke bottle and later presented them to my wife as a joke, so I could tell her that I had not forgotten, but hadn't been able to get her a present. She loved it...go figure.

    It isn't the present that melts us like butter. It is knowing that our guys love us and think about us that is romantic. It could be a little love note, or maybe stay home from work one day to spend the day with her. It's the personal things like the thought that we enjoy.

    Pretty much. My wife was just *SO* happy and grateful that I got the generator hooked up! Who knew?

    My wife gets angry if I get her gifts. Imagine the trouble I would be in if I didn't get her something she didn't want?

    Re: Valentines suggestions fella's

    Valentines, her Birthday and Mothers Day mean pampering the Queen for at least a day, usually a weekend. Gifts are not very impressive to my wife because she pretty much buys whatever she wants/needs so I usually just give her a shopping allowance for the holiday that she uses at her discretion because apparently I'm unable to shop for her taste.

    BUT, she starts her day with flowers, cards, at least some small token gifts that I think she'll like and a fancy home made breakfast in bed (last year it was lobster stuffed crepes, yes I'm a pretty good cook) and a Mimosa. Then we go shopping for the day at her choice of stores and in the evening we have a NICE dinner at her restaurant of choice. These simple jestures get me a WHOLE year of assorted meals in bed for no good reason at all (and my Bday and Fathers Day), a complete pass of any and ALL household chores and "intimate interludes" pretty much on demand. WELL worth the effort

    I save all my days for hunting season. The better I treat the old lady, the more time I am allowed in the woods without risking divorce.

    I listened to that last night while grading some papers. It was interesting. I was surprised at how many of the songs I had heard before on the radio.

    Managing your women is not rocket science. We might not understand them but it's easy to figure out what they need and the rewards are great!

    I love listening to guys talk about women lol. We are very simple creatures... treat us good and you will be taken care of. Do us wrong and life will be hell. Like the little blonde girl from the exorcist kinda hell. Nobody wants to see that side of mama.

    This is all true - except the "simple" part. I've been married to my wife for 33+ years, and I still haven't figured out her particular brand of illogic! The number of gauges and indicators I have to keep an eye on are exceeded only by those found in a nuke plant. The "fuel gauge" is the most important - if it drops (she's hypoglycemic), the mood index drops with it, and the grump index rises. And that's just the beginning!

    This....it's the gesture that counts; might not be even something for her, like toys or sweets for the twins, or even something as simple as printing & framing a bunch of old pictures, but everything adds. The important part is the "surprise factor" and the "thinking about you" idea.
    Last birthday took her and the girls to a big mall in Santiago (We were over there for Eastern), straight to a fancy artisan body care products store; place reeks of girly scents (I feel like being ran over, nose first, by a truck loaded with flowers) but endured the process (She knows I'm literally choking, and that's part of the gesture) of picking up a sizeable tab of assorted body creams, soaps, shampoos, etc., bag everything and make the girls give her "THEIR present to mommy"....could have bought a fully armed M1A Abrahams that afternoon, target-practiced in her mom's garden and get away with it!

    No, no, no... Women's thought processes are impossible for the male mind to understand because they are driven by emotion which is a tide with NO set clock attached to it. But they are SIMPLE creatures in every other sense. You treat a woman with respect, you SHUT UP and listen to what she has to say, you support whatever they "think" they want to do next (that is a WHOLE subject on to itself) and feed their sense of romance and you'll have a loving woman that will break her butt to make you happy.

    The ONE thing that will always get a happy outcome is DO NOT EVER contradict a woman. NOTHING will get you in the doghouse faster. Instead listen intently, tell her whatever is coming out of he mouth is brilliant, be sympathetic if she is complaining, say you are sorry PROPMTLY when it's your fault (and it's always your fault) and then just shut up and go away after giving her big hug/kiss and telling her everything will be just fine and you are with her 100%. 99.999999999% of the time they are just talking and NOTHING will comet of it, your ass will be intact and you will accumulate 1.5 trillion brownie points to be converted into good times at a later date!

    Trust me, I'm a NIGHTMARE of a husband and to hear my wife talk about me to her friends I'm chocolate ice-cream on top of donuts on top of creme brűlée

    "MANAGING YOUR WOMEN?" Every woman I've ever known thinks God put them on earth to Manage ME!!! I usually just get the hell out of the way and let nature take its course. Of course I'm not real good at marriage as my record will indicate, but I do know how to survive!
