3 Tips For Anyone Dating A Man Over 50

Tip #1 ... Men Actually Love Making You Happy

That's a shocker, isn't it? But men really do want to make you happy. The key lies in knowing how to ask them for their help so they'll want to do anything for you.

The other key is not telling a man how to do what you've just asked him to do.

If you want help from a man, graciously and appreciatively accept what he does for you, even if it's not exactly what you wanted.

A man will feel beaten down by you when he thinks nothing he ever does is right in your eyes.

That's when he stops trying to please you and make you happy.

Tip #2 ... Men Can Only Focus On One Thing At A Time

Again, here's another area where we expect men to be like women but due to a part of our DNA that has been in humans since the caveman days, we are totally different here too.

For men to hunt, they had to focus on their prey and how they were going to bring this prey home as food for their family.

For example, if they started admiring the way the plants beautifully draped the entrance of their cave, they'd become the prey themselves versus the other way around.

It's in men's DNA that they can only focus on one thing at a time. Keep this in mind when you ask a man to do something, and then start piling other tasks on top of it. He literally can't.

Tip #3 ... It's Likely You Will Bend Like A Pretzel Around The Man You Love

So many women have told me how they lost themselves in a relationship trying to please the man in their life.

Why do you do this? Because your ancient ancestral grandmothers did everything to keep their cavemen happy so they would keep their families safe and protected.

Isn't it amazing how this little bit of DNA has continued to be part of your life thousands of years later?

Have a great week and let me know how these tips work for you.
