Steves dating rules

A lot of women don’t know that if you don’t sit your guy down and talk to him about what you want, if you don’t make it a requirement …

I won’t go into one of the many rants I have stored up on how damaging the mere premise of Steve Harvey’s Think Like A Man, Act Like A Lady book can be to women attempting to maneuver through already confusing dating and relationship rituals.

They are from all walks of life — ballplayers, actors, truck drivers, insurance salesmen, guys I worked in the factory with when I was at Ford motors, and my father. e Harmony: So how are you friends reacting to your giving away their secrets?

I found that we teach this thought process to our sons. Steve Harvey: All of my friends are really cool with it.

If you don’t have any standards and requirements, any parameters set up in your initial dating experience, then a guy just starts exacting his will and you end up not getting what you want. e Harmony: If there is one piece of advice you could give to men and women looking for love, what would that be? What you have to do in the meantime is stay in the ready-set position. The first three chapters of the book explains how men are.

A woman should never be afraid to say what she wants, what she is looking for, and if a guy doesn’t want to do [what she lays out], let him go about his business, because we are going to be doing one of two things with you: We are going to be playing with you, or we are going to be planning with you. Steve Harvey: It is my firm belief that God has created someone for everyone. Why would God having created your soulmate never allow you to meet him/her? It was really eye-opening for me to put the words on the page and share the chapters with my wife.

I was very careful in constructing this book to make sure it had no color to it and that is the beautiful thing.

I am talking about a subject I am an absolute expert on and that is manhood. I don’t know a man who is, but I am an expert on manhood. I don’t care how much we make, what we do for a living, what our religion is or what color we are. So when I sat down to write this book, I wrote it from the standpoint of what I was an expert at and from where I had the greatest source of information — and that was all of my friends who happen to be men. It is real conversation from a man who has no ulterior motive other than to tell them the truth.

I sat him down and told him and he said, “Oh, okay. So many women are going through this thing: He hasn’t asked me yet.

That is cool with me, too.” He went out and showed up the next Saturday with the ring. Have you told him what you have to have to be happy?

Once you know how a man thinks, how he processes information, his thought patterns, then you can make a decision.

A lot of times you can make the most out of a man if you understand what makes him tick, what drives him, and what he has to have. I expose to women what drives men, how men love and what men have to have.

It is still love, but it is not as encompassing as a woman’s love.
