A Dummies Guide For Men Who Don’t Know How To Treat A Woman

Ever wondered why it is difficult for another to treat a fellow human being right? While some may choose to ponder on these, it might interest you to know that as surprising as it sounds, there are men who genuinely do not know how to treat a woman.

Below are easy guidelines to help you:

Treat her like a human being “with a touch of extra”

As much as some would prefer not to admit for the sake of patriachy, almost everyone can admit that there is a “spoiling silly” gesture that comes with loving a person in a special way. This translates to treating the one you want with love and care. Now apply that with a touch of extra and go out of your way to make her smile.

Be thoughtful and sensitive

Yes, there are times men make comments such as “we are not magicians to know what you want; women need to say these things.” Yet, there is a general agreement that the heart grows fonder on thoughtful gestures. Don’t wait until she says them. Pick up conscious and unconscious signals. It might take a while but trust the process.


Compliment her

Men may not know this but there are women who are tired of being told how beautiful they look. But not from the one person they love or the one person they really want to hear it from. Go all out, notice the little things – hair, makeup, shoes, earrings, styling. Also, make sure they are sincere.

Listen and Communicate

There are postulations that men don’t take the thoughts and opinion of their women seriously. Because they have a different makeup and motive, they do not realise that a woman craves and deserves attention. She wants to know that you care about her entirety; her career, friends, opinions, emotions, fears and ambitions. Show that you are thoughtful and sensitive by listening, contributing and communicating.


Respecting her means respecting yourself as well. Respect her dignity. A man who respects his woman would never cheat on her. Respect her decisions. Respect her needs and wants. The level of respect you have for your woman will be evident in the way to treat and communicate with her and about her.
All that pretty sums it all up.
