Ladies! What would you change about your man?

Is there something that you would change about your man? Do you have a gripe about your man? Let's hear about it now, however small it may be. The thing that I would most like to change about my man is that I would give hgim the courage to say those three words, I Love You, "spontaneously" without being prompted. I know he does love me but he never says it without me having to ask him if he does. He will then say something like, "Of course I love you. You know I do!" Why don't men realise little things like saying I love you mean so much to a woman.

Wouldn't change him now, would've changed him back in the day... When he screwed up our entire relationship and made me crazy. I love him and am slowly getting over the hurt, but life still tastes bitter sometimes :( Other than THAT..... I just wish he was a little neater! and cared that we have ants!

Do you think we have to put up with what we have and not at least try to make our men more considerate?

actually, my man's a lot more considerate these days. he knows if he ever pulled any of the crap he did in the past, he'd be a very unhappy fella.

I like this post. It gave me an idea to assessed my man attitude. Well, I guess one thing I wish I would wanna change into my man: his passiveness. He is not the romantic type but I guess I fall in love with him no matter how blunt he is. I want to see his sweetness. If he is jealous he didn't talk just end the day not talking to me. I want to see him speak out his jealousy because in that I will feel that he wants only me in his life.

Hmmm. Do you deliberately try to make him jealous? I think I would be very careful about doing that. I would hate it if my man gave me cause to be jealous and I don't think I would stay with him long if he continued to try to make me jealous.

I think the thing i would change about my beau is that he would not say I LOVE YOU also. I knew he had some past issues and did not pressure it out of him and i my self would not say it outloud so he would not be put on the spot. he has always shown me that he loved me but i finally asked him if he did. he said of course i do how could you not know that. we have only stared to say it to each other. but we have been together for 7 years now. I also wish he would be more social, my friends dont know much about him except what they hear from me. when we are together we just like to stay at home and be homebodies.

That is what I mean. You had to say it first so it was you that prompted him to say he loved you too. It is good to hear that you are now both saying "I love you" to each other. One thing I learned a long time ago is never to put your man in a position of having to say "I love you" when he is with friends or within friends earshot. Men HATE that!

Well if ever i had a man for me, then i would change my man from being a boring as's to a romantic and sporty man, i hate men who lie in their bed like a frog and really act so very unenthusiastic.I would love my man to be romantic and respective towards love making, not that i am mad for love but i know after sometime men leave intrest in making love with their wives and the hunt out for nothing.

This is so true. It seems that men take women for granted once they have "won" their hearts.
