Cutting the Strings

I just finished reading this book titled Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man by Steve Harvey. Apparently this book has caused an uproar amongst men and woman alike. Man are upset about SH advising woman to make men take care of them, while woman finally understand why men do the things they do.

The book goes on to say that no matter how wonderful a woman is, if a guy doesn't feel secure in his manhood he will not stay no matter the circumstances. He also goes on to argue that men don't love the same way us women do, that because of this its easier for them to stray away and have an affair. He also offers some advice in determining a mans intentions by giving examples of things a guy would say or do if he felt you were a keeper vs something he can string around.

While I have mixed feelings about his suggesting we make men take care of us, I do however agree when he suggests we applaud their efforts. A simple thank you can go a long way. If he's genuinely deserving of recognition, give it. If not... give it anyway. Soon enough he'll live up to that superman title.
