Weekly relationship hints to help you make your girlfriend or wife ridiculously happy.


What women (including your girlfriend) want

What turns women on? Men have asking themselves (and each other) this questions for eons. If you’re in a monogamous relationship (which we assume you are, since this is called Make Your Girlfriend Happy and not Make Your Friend-With-Benefits Happy), it turns out there are a number of things that are scientifically proven to turn women on. This week, MadeMan.com published a list of the the top nine reasons why women are attracted to men. Frankly, they’re superficial, but also bang on:

  1. Piercings, tattoos, and scars: No scars, no proof, tough guy.
  2. Money: A reasonable amount is what they want; it’s a validation of your status.
  3. A deep voice: That guy who does the voice overs for movie trailers must be cleaning up.
  4. Height: Not much you can about this. And don’t even try lifts, Tom Cruise.
  5. A V-shaped torso: There’s the gym for that.
    # Sense of humour: You’re already one step ahead as a subscriber to this newsletter.
    # Emotional appeal: In short, you > bad ex-boyfriends.
    # Smell: Lay off the cologne and try bathing on a regular basis.
    # Confidence: Be bold, be daring, be swashbuckling.

While you might not yet be part of the HGC – The Handsome Gentlemen’s Club, you can always improve. All of these traits are great in and of themselves, but what this list really boils down to is that a woman wants to feel secure, protected and prized – and you can do that even if you weren’t born with a baritone voice. It’s up to you to ensure your style, attitude and actions make her feel special. In the end, that’s worth a whole lot more than a tattoo.

Fine, what they really want is jewellery…
