How to Act Like A Lady.. Think Like A Man

Now I'm sure by now most of you have read or at least heard about Steve Harvey's best selling book Act Like a Lady Think Like A Man..I'll have to say I agree with some of his thoughts on man/woman relations , but there are still a few things that make me go Hmm...

Here are the highlights and the the Hmms...

  • Highlight-Every man has a plan: Steve believes that every man as he walks up to you, has already designed a plan for you . Either you're marriage material or a jumpoff., but I suggest you find out his "plan" before you get to...

  • Highlight- The cookie: Steve believes that similar to a job, men should have to wait at least three months to get the cookie/sex. He compares it to benefits on a job. You have to wait three months to evaluate his behavior and reward him...Definetely agree. Some women hand it out like gum to everyone who applies for the job..damn shame

  • Hmmm- You must have a title: Steve believes that a man must give you a title. Now this one is tricky because sometimes in relationships some things are every bit shades of grey and that goes both ways...

  • Highlight/Hmmm- Men cheat because they lack 1 or more of 3 required aspects o a relationship:Love, Loyalty and/or Support. Now this could be true or untrue for men.Sometimes men cheat for purely physical reasons. Women simply have to come to terms with that. It's not right, but there are some losers who can be getting EVERYTHING at home and still find a reason to step out...For women though..I think it applies

  • Highlight- Don't tell him you need to talk: Men shut down when you say this.Actually people shut down if you preempt a serious conversations like this. Just start talking..

For the rest, pick up the book ..Let me know what you think...

Keep in mind though it is just a book and Steve is just a man... Speak on it

I wouldn't buy it only because at the end of the day people are unpredictable. This book reminds me of the movie, "Two can play that game" and I think when women start relying on rules or guidelines to define their relationship....it plays out just like the movie except Morris Chestnut is not waiting at the end of the story waiting to forgive you.

I think that books that try to give women guides to love, being a groupie, etc... are setting up a big downfall. I like the quotes you posted from the book and it seems like some good info is in there but when a situation is playing out in real life, some women will revert back to the book's guides and think that things should be going a certain way.

I just recently read this book and feel really enlightened. Some of the stuff mentioned I already knew of, but I did learn some new things. I had a convo with a friend of mine that said:" The best way to understand a man and how he thinks is to hear it from a man. A woman can come close, but she's still not a man."

I gotta say that it was a good read and provides great guidance and insight into the male psyche.
