Men want love as badly as women do. Most especially Lagos men. They just might not always be as obvious about it. But generally, they want the same thing: friendship, companionship, chemistry. So why is there so much confusion and miscommunication between the sexes?

Rules. Some have been handed down through the generations. Others are ones we “see” to be true. And, of course, there are the ones written from our personal history.

There are some universal rules applying to men that you probably could find inscribed on the walls of caves from long ago. They still ring true today:

Praise

 Just like ladies, Men also adore women who shower them with adulation.

Nagging

Men hate it. Tell them once what you want. You have a 50-50 chance it will be done. Tell them more than that within a 24-hour period and it’s called nagging. Lagos men have little chill, therefore be careful and avoid nagging.

Crying

Men really hate it. Imagine you finally get him to have a serious talk and you start crying because you don’t like how it’s going. Well, girlfriend, you killed that one. If he ignores your emotions, Finish the talk, and then cry to the dog or whoever.

Where is this relationship going?

Really? Fine, you have to know what plan he has for the relationship but you don’t have to ask this too early. You don’t have to rush things. You just have to let is flow.

Food

Feed him! I suppose the cliché rings true. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. They find that women who cook are more sexy and confident than women who do not. Gone are the days of takeout menus. As a man ages, so does his palate. Nothing pleases a man more than a hearty home cooked meal made by the love of his life.

Be Naughty

Try not to let your sex life become lackluster. Ask him about his ultimate sexual fantasy and play it out. Turn up the fun by turning up the kink. Do something spontaneous like surprising him with sex. Psst. It’s good for both of you. It keeps the connection and relieves stress and tension. He’ll be putty in your hands. Cook a meal for him after and he’ll be so happy he might even cry.

Be supportive

You should stand by your man through thick and thin, especially when it comes to difficult life decisions. Support him in his decision. No matter how unpleasant it may be, your partner needs your support to help him through the tough times so ensure that you are there for him.

Show Appreciation

It doesn’t matter how little the effort is, make sure you show appreciation often

 Love

And more love. Tell him. Hug him. Text him. Laugh with him. Leave love notes in the bathroom or in his car. All the time. You’ll get it back in spades. It’s contagious and it keeps the special spark glowing bright.
