Let's Start 

Lesson 1: Mr. Fixit and the Home Improvement Committee

The most common complaint women have about men is that men don't lesson here the completely

Ignores her when she speaks to him or he quickly assesses what's troubling her and then offers a solution to make her feel better he gets confused this health when she doesn't appreciate it she just wants empathy but he thinks she wants solutions to stop giving unsolicited advice show compassion and listen to your partner

On the flip side, Men complain that women are always trying to change them she thinks she is caring for him while he feels he's being controlled instead he just wants her acceptance she presumes a man doesn't know what to do and he can't do it on his own men want to prove their competent by achieving things themselves

You may have noticed by now that John Gray the author of this book tends to stereotype genders ignoring the fact that people are unique regardless of their gender, we'll discuss this at the end of the Article

Lesson 2: men go to their caves and women talk

Men and women cope with stress differently, men become focused and withdrawn whereas women become overwhelmed and emotionally involved during these times, men feel better by solving problems while women feel better by talking about their problems, in times of stress men will retreat to their caves he becomes quiet Mull's over a solution and then gradually comes out of his cave if he can't find a solution, he'll do something to forget his problems like watch TV or play a video game he needs space women on the other hand feel better by talking about their problems, she wants to express herself and feel understood before finding solutions a woman will appreciate a man if he truly listens.

Lesson 3: Men, unlike rubber bands and women, are like waves.

A rubber band is a metaphor for the male intimacy cycle men get close pull away and then get close again men have an instinctive urge to pull away from time to time, this is commonly misunderstood by women especially when they try to share their feelings, but their man pulls away, however, a man should at least reassure their partner of when they'll come back
a woman is like a wave, a woman's self-esteem rises and falls like a wave men can get confused and frustrated thinking that they've made her upset, let's return to lesson one don't give unsolicited advice during this time also after listening to a woman, don't expect her to feel better straight away

Lesson 4scoring points with the opposite sex.

No matter how big or small a gift of love is for a woman it scores, just one point but in a man's mind a bigger gift means more points, let's say Danny raised his income from $50,000 to $100,000 to support the family to him that may be worth 50 points but to his wife, that's only one point likewise, if he bought an expensive car for his wife as a gift of love it would still be worth one point no matter how much he paid for the car this can explain why men get confused when their wives aren't satisfied giving your wife two kisses - hugs and a compliment could score you many more points than if you were to buy her an expensive watch

The last lesson, Lesson 5speaking different languages.

Honey are you okay I'm fine so she says, she might be fine but she might not, when a guy says he's fine so to fully express their feelings women speak poetically use superlatives metaphors and generalizations.

Men mistakenly take these expressions literally and miss understand the intended meaning, so what should you do look deeper, what is the underlying issue here's an example, Sally says the house is always a mess Cecil, replies are you kidding me I always clean the house and before I'm finished you mess it up again.

Now this is a bad way of responding because what she really may mean is I need to relax today, but the house is messy I'm frustrated and I need to rest, you clean a lot for me but for today could you please offer to help clean part of it try not to take everything literally especially when emotions are running high otherwise, you'll get frustrated, another example Sally says you don't love me anymore.

But what she really may mean is today I don't feel loved I know you love me I'm just feeling a little insecure at the moment would you reassure me of your love don't expect to be perfect at reading women straightaway it takes time and effort to get to know how your partner behaves.

Before you go it's up to you on how you decide to use this information. this book was published in 1992 by John Gray who apparently has little credibility. the book is rated three and a half out of five stars based on 3400 reviews and a hundred and fourteen thousand readers on Goodreads.com.

Which is considered low on this website in the day and age of the feminist movement many argue that the author is a sexist pop psychologist who pigeonholes people into gender stereotypes and NER forgives worthless advice, whilst I do partly agree that's not to say we should ignorantly flush it all down the toilet? this book has genuinely helped me in my relationship regardless of your gender here are five important points that everyone can benefit from

  1. : don't give unsolicited advice
  2. : understand people need space sometimes
  3. : listen to people when they talk
  4. : it's a little things that count  
  5. : when someone is upset don't take words literally, try to understand the underlying issue
