So do you agree with the statement? I read this in a book and well i think it could be true that we women only wants too be loved. we want to feel that we are loved by our partners... and we thought our love is enough for the men.. when in fact they crave and needed to be admired more than loved...? your thoughts please! =)

I don't agree. I don't want only to be loved and I am sure that most women want attention most of all. BTW: I also want to be admired. And I am sure man need love too, although I do believe women have an other idea about what love is as men, generally speaking, see as love. There are enough women who need to be encouraged by their husbands as well. What men need is attention, a lot of it. As soon as you tell them how great they are or how strong they are willing to do everything for you.

thank you for your response wakeupkitty. I want to be loved as much as i want to be admired, and to be given the attention. but I'd say you are correct with what you said. men need attention too. most of the time they sure make you feel like they lack the attention and would try to get as much as they can. haha doing silly things and stuffs to get a woman's attention.

I beg to disagree with that. Of course men needs love too, maybe some men just don't express or show that they need love but we all need love to be happy. That could only be true for young men like teenagers or young adults.

hehe thanks for your answer/response to the discussion. well according to the author, men needs admiration more than love. they need to feel that they are admired - for their skills, good qualities and so on. =)

I would like to dis agree with you. Not all guy sought to be admired. Some of us are satisfied knowing that we are loved and being taken care off. Also there are some woman who sought to be admired more than to be loved. So i think the quote that you had mention applies for both man and woman.

I think women need to be admired too. If a woman doesn't get the attention she longs for after awhile, she'll end up seeking it out. I know that when I'm with someone, I still like to get attention. I like to be admired and told I'm sexy, beautiful, etc. I make sure to give the same to my partner. It's nice to hear how wonderful you are every once in awhile!

I think everyone needs to be loved. We all need love. Admiration is part of love. So, I guess we do have common interests when it comes to love. In my case, I want to be loved and be admired. And if i love someone, I truly love him with all my heart.

I'm a man and admiration means nothing to me. It is important to lots of people including women. Why do you think women spend so much money trying to look beautiful?? They want to be admired.

I am not so inclined to believe this statement. I think that everyone needs love but the way that they need it can be different. I myself like to hear my husband say I love you and he knows that when I make him coffee that I love him. He does not need to hear it as much but likes to see the actions I do out of love. I can admire people but not love them or feel anything even close to love.

Hi! I think that both men and women needed to be loved and they needed to be admired for their efforts. Love and appreciation both are very important for every human being so that she or he could feel motivated to accomplish his or her tasks and jobs in hand. I being a male wish to be loved and admired for my actions and kind words of appreciation do wonders to me and boost my morale. Words of appreciation make the same affect on my wife and she equally desires to be loved and cared like me.

I somewhat agree! Women really needs love and also some admiration since admiring them also makes them happy and realize that their partner doesn't stop admiring them just like when they are still dating and getting to know each other. And also for men they also need love since even though how hard looking a men is they still a have soft part on their heart which needs love especially the love of their partner/family. =)

Partly true, for it is the authors opinion, that was based on his experience I guess. But for me, I need affection rather than admiration. I am not sure about men, but maybe. Well, I'll try to observe. If I can't get the answer I will ask. I just hope I will not be embarassed, lol.
