What is the secret to keeping the (allegedly) hairier sex happy? How can we possibly find out what makes the former residents of Mars tick? We have decided to investigate this – in the traditional list format favoured upon this day and by women's magazines when dealing with such tricky subjects. We know this much – it's certainly not a case of just talking to them. Get ready, prepare yourself for becoming irresistible...
2. I'm actually a little uncomfortable writing a suggestion for this - you never see tips for men to please women. Why should women change their wardrobe, behaviour or lifestyle to attract or keep men? That said, you really can't go wrong with the offer a bacon sandwich every now and then. Gareth
3. If I knew...I probably would continue not to do it. I was always very confused by the slightly breathless What Men Really Want! articles in women's magazines. It was always a case of not being fashionistas, not wearing make up, not hanging out in a group and certain alcoholic beverages being intimidating. I seem to recall beer being too laddish and red wine too sophisticated. What men want is for women to hang around alone, bare faced and in their pyjamas nursing a glass of white wine. Squeamish Kate
4. I have many wonderful men in my life, which is part luck, part deliberate strategy. There are different ways of pleasing each of them - one is always happy if I make him a cuppa while I'm making myself one. Another is pleased if I call him to discuss his latest article. The one I live with seems to be made happy by me picking my socks off up the bedroom floor and taking the rubbish out for a change instead of waiting for him to do it, but that may say more about my domestic habits than how to please him. There does, however, seem to be one thing I do that all the men in my life really like. Basically, it involves being myself around them, having intelligent conversations about things, asking for their opinions when I want them, and making sure they listen to people who have more to say than they do on topics they're interested in - from feminism to woodwork.
Men! So easy to please! Squeamish Louise
