    Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

    What men really think about love, relationships, intimacy, and commitment

    Has anyone read this?

    It's by Steve Harvey, who I don't know much about, but I've heard good things about it. I've realized that I really just don't understand men. I expect them to act or think a certain way, and they don't. I just downloaded the e-book, and so far it seems really interesting and informative. Anyone else read/learned from this book?

    I don't like books like this.

    Basically, any book like this is written from one perspective... the perspective of the person writing it.


    Honestly, I've found that when you boil it down to one on one with a man, they aren't very different from women. Everyone wants to be loved, respected, and have our mate be loyal. Everyone wants to achieve our goals and be acknowledged for doing so. Everyone wants to pursue their passions and have their mate support them. These things are not unique to men, and they aren't unique to women.

    Men aren't very hard to understand, but they aren't "simple". In general, they mean what they say and expect us to say what we mean. And how they act toward you, is generally a good indication of how they feel about you.

    Each man has his own unique needs in regard to relationships and sex, and that varies between every single of them, just like it does for females. It's up to you to find out what YOUR man needs in regard to relationships and sex and go with that. There isn't a key to understanding men, because they aren't very mysterious creatures and neither are women.

    At least that's how I feel about it.


    eta: I think books like this just add to stereotypes or classify men and women in weird ways.

    We may all want the same things, but I find men and women show it differently. I know that one perspective isn't going to open up the world of men to me, but I figure hearing from one man is better than trying to understand it on my own. I take everything I read/hear with a grain of salt. The book seems interesting, and I like to get a perspective on men other than my girl friends'

    yea I hear you on that.

    I always just feel like books like this always sort of say the same thing, and it puts men and women in a negative light.

    Yes I read it, and it is interesting, but I'd say take it lightly and don't read it as a "bible" to understanding men. Read it as entertainment.

    Bottom line is you can't generalize men OR women. Every person is unique and as much as we'd love to understand men, you can't categorize a whole species of men and say "men are like this..."

    BUT, a book I really enjoyed and thought was SO TRUE was "He's Just Not That Into You"
    read that book!!!
