A non-question. You might as well ask "what makes a person happy?"
It all depends on the woman. One woman doesn't necessarily have anything more in common with another woman than a man has in common with another man.

Bullfrog!
What you said reminds me of a verse by john Prine in his song "Far From Me".

Well, I leaned on my left leg
in the parking lot dirt
And Cathy was closing the lights
A June bug flew from the warmth he once knew
And I wished for once I weren't right
Why we used to laugh together
And we'd dance to any old song.
Well, ya know, she still laughs with me
But she waits just a second too long.

What makes "a woman" happy-- there's the problem. What makes a specific woman happy is what makes her happy as a PERSON who happens to be female in her own unique way.

Me, for instance. Hate roses. Knowing that I don't like them and that their odor turns my stomach, now that's happy. Thinking about ME, and not "how I gonna make my woman happy".

Amos put happy industrious finger to hard-used, letters-worn-off keyboard on tired but faithful Mac and like a fiend addicted to words the same as some are addicted to absinthe (which does NOT make the heart grow fonder, only more sloppily affectionate) and typed with a fervor only equaled in 'what is folk?' arguments and threads in other other anal-retentive magnet subjects, "What I want to know is what possessed Adrien Beer to make a possessive form out of a verb, in the thread title, or otherwise abuse a poor little apostrophe that had done him no harm." and yet you ignored his odd period, lack of spaces and capitalization of the noun 'sex' (which was not used as a proper noun), and yet you might have just queried, "Adrien, why did you stick an apostrophe in 'its'?"--but you didn't.

He isn't perfect, but neither are you, so THERE, buster.

These threads give me the creeps too. It's a little like those 'how to get girls' books for losers who can't just force themselves to JUST be decent human beings... or a Bobert thread. Plus, you get people criticizing you for starting a 'thread like this'.

OK folks, lets all pretend he asked 'What Makes Your S.O. Happy?'
I don't know, cuz I ain't got one o' them SO thangs. All I can offer is this: Beer, I've seen your gardens. If she wants plants, give her plants!

From what I've seen at the local internet cafe, most people's S.O. these days is a laptop computer! Or an iphone.

Yeah, these threads on "women" (as if they could all be summarized somehow in a single definition) are a bit creepy, no doubt about it, Jeri, but they also offer an opportunity for some lighthearted banter and I don't think there's any real harm in that as long as it's not accompanied by bad intentions. Bobert, for example, needs to do threads about "womenz" now and then as a way of poking fun at himself and his ongoing life and thereby relieving stress. It's a form of therapy.

What would really offend you is the dog-eared books Shane has been studying for years on how to pick up girls. Now THOSE are CREEPY! Also, they don't seem to have done him any good...

Hawk, I'm not really very militant about this. Not even very serious.

I think maybe these threads reassure some of you guys. Maybe if you get just the right formula of flowers and chocolates, women will be nice to you.

Seriously, and I MEAN it: there's a reason she started loving you. Just remember what it was and honor it. Note that the flowers and chocolates, a dinner out or a romantic dinner you cooked won't hurt... unless she thinks you're feeling guilty about something which will get you a buttload of trouble.

For sure, Jeri. I understand what you mean.

I know exactly what it is that caused various women to start loving me in the past...and I know what to do to please them, providing I'm willing to do it...I'm not always willing to do it.

It's just that I don't actually want the complications of such a relationship in my life anymore, and I can't be bothered. I am not looking for "the right formuala" to find someone, because I'm not looking, period. I have no strategies in mind for that.

I prefer friendships at this point in my life, not love affairs. Friends are people I can have a good time with playing music or whatever, but I'm a free man when I walk out the door.

Sex? I don't worry much about that anymore. If I never have sex again till the day I die....okay, fine. It's a very enjoyable experience in itself, but it's not the key to happiness.

p.s. I would not have believed my present perspective on this prior to age 50!

Well, guys, I have this problem with sex. I take it way too seriously...and I fall in love with people. Then my life goes totally out of control and I end up in some romantic situation that drives me right out of my mind and everything "turns to shit", to quote Blake Madison or someone else like that. It's a frikkin' disaster. Every time.

That is why I think abstinence is the best idea in my case. I was meant to live either alone...or in a community of like-minded people like an ashram or something...but not with one woman.

"...my life goes totally out of control... "

hmmm... I guess that makes me wonder who tries to control what. But it is obviously better to NOT get serious and try living with someone, than to have tedious conflicts, no matter why they happen.

I know a woman who has much the same basic problem...she tries to "have a serious relationship" and issues develop. In her case, I am 82.537% sure that she tries to gently 'adjust' the habits of her intended partner....for his own good, of course. She is a very nice, giving, talented lady who has lived alone for many years, developing her clear ideas on everything from politics to what to have for dinner. I think she has just about decided that your way works best, Little Hawk.

I dunno if I am just totally lucky THIS time, or whether I learned some things from what didn't work before, but we 'make room' for each other's needs and adjust and listen.

There's no one 'right' way for anyone to live and relate to others, but my best answer to "what makes a woman happy" is to listen and learn and try to be aware, even during the inevitable disagreements.

Yes, Peter, that is what the experts refer to as "life"... ;-)

But it's not the only possible mode of life one can or should follow. It's just the most common one. I honestly think some people are basically meant to live alone, they're better off that way (in a psychological sense), and that I'm one of them. This is true of some women too, I would think.

Rap, you're stealing my thunder!

Hard learned, tried and true. Women want to be loved. They want every aspect of their world to be secured in and by the love of an honest man (assuming they are honest women). Some men view sex as a separate act or a "part" of the picture. Women view sex as an integrated part of the total experience. It is life and sometimes the bringer of life. Of course this is all ideal but it is what you aim for.

And when women go a little crazy and bang off the walls you give them latitude to do so. When it's personal, don't take it personally. When things cool down it will be better than ever.

An amazing thing is to watch hot passion and romantic love convert into family love. Things change and love grows. It becomes a bulwark for all of life's storms. It embraces children and your children's children. And the really beautiful thing is that the original passion is still there, banked against all the humdrum or panic and the least little breeze of romance can fan it to life.

With many people, hg, you don't see their dark side at all in the early stages of courtship and relationship. It doesn't come out and reveal itself at first...not until the relationship is well established. This isn't because they are consciously scheming to fool you...it's just the way the human ego instinctively works, that's all. It doesn't get around to revealing its nastier subconscious garbage until it figures it has already made it safely to home base.

This also happens quite a bit with marriages. I'll give you an example. I have a friend who married in his mid-20s after having had a very happy relationship with his girlfriend for several years. They got along well, the sex was apparently great, they had lots of fun together and everything was going fine. Then they got married. Much to my friend's astonishment, his partner suddenly ceased having any interest in sex or emotional closeness at all anymore (including on their marriage night). She became combative and negative and all the joy went out of their relationship.

Whatever her subconscious garbage was, it had succeeded in hiding itself very effectively until that marriage license was signed. Well, they stayed together in this loveless marriage for a number of years, but eventually divorced.

You may think it's easy to see a toxic personality from the getgo. It isn't.

Women and men both want to be loved. That's a given. Some, however, simply don't believe deep down that they really deserve to be loved or that they ever can be loved or that anyone else ever will love them. They don't think they're lovable! And they don't even believe it's love when they get it from someone, they think it's a strategy of some kind. That's where the problems are usually hiding...in their negative thinking about themselves and their trust issues with other people. Those problems generally go right back to early childhood experiences, I think.

Um. Little Hawk, I'm with hg here. Many a woman marries a man who turns out seriously flawed whether as a violent person or a cheater at taxes or a paedophile.

But if she is facing it clearly seldom has a woman NOT known beforehand that he was not kosher, so to speak. She may not know how very bent he is but in my opinion she knows he is bent.

Maybe it goes back to what Bill D said about the woman planning to "change" him.    But trust me: She knows.

I have to agree with you LH. And remember love, or even a heady lust, is blind. We don't want to see those tell-tale clues. We often don't listen to the warnings of friends and family. We WANT TO BELIEVE!

Borderline personalities are particularly difficult to spot. Chameleon is an apt description. They are usually completely hidden from themselves too. All too often, when the negative changes begin to manifest, they make a remarkable case that it is YOUR fault, not theirs. A true test of such mental illness is that it continues to progress in a downward spiral. It becomes the proverbial train wreck; you can see it coming but there is nothing you can do about it.

I think women may be (on average) a bit better at picking up those signals, Ebbie...or men (on average) might not be so good at hiding their dark side? I think men are often more surprised when their partner's dark side emerges than women are, because they never even saw it coming.

Well.....I can't say I know for sure, but I think it's more along the line of what Slag is saying: We don't want to see those tell-tale clues when we're in love with someone, and we make excuses for them, because we WANT to believe. That's one of the chief dangers of the whole process of "falling in love" as it is termed in our culture.

An interesting discussion about this thread with women friends last night (well, part of this thread, we were discussing Little Hawk's putative lonerdom, and they all agreed that it was a sham). But anyway, there was agreement that one thing that separates women from men is that once a relationship starts, women are more interested in giving it time to build; men will decide they don't like the long term prospects and go. There was an agreement that somewhere around one month into a relationship (especially after about a week or so of sex, so the man at least can say he had sex with her, and notch her up) is where this happens. (I'm just reporting this conversation)......

(like all these theories, extrapolation from insufficient data).

That other situation you allude to, Peter, where the man loses interest after about a month...yes, that's quite common. I think it happens because the man is basically just trying to satisfy his sex drive (whether he knows that or not), he's seeking short term entertainment in other words, but he definitely doesn't want the complex set of responsibilities that come with an ongoing relationship. Women, on the other hand, usually do want that set of responsibilities, because it makes them feel secure...and loved. In the case of the man, if he's the hit and run kind, it just makes him feel trapped...and probably bored.

That happens with a lot of men, specially younger men. It doesn't go that way with all of them, though, fortunately. Some men are genuinely looking for committment and stability in a relationship.

Freud gets sort of a bad rap because he said quite a few things that were pretty intelligent that are omitted, ignored, and apparently unknown by most "Freudians."

He also did not say many of the things that are taught as "core Freudian knowledge" - at least not in any of his seven books that I read as a teenager when I was immature enough to think "that stuff" was really important.

He was succinctly and accurately summed up by his daughter Anna, herself a quite capable therapist, when she actually did say "Daddy was a nut," althugh it's not compleltey clear whether she was referring to his work or to his "family life."

On the main topic of the thread, 5 things men should know about women adds nothing most should not already know; but does illustrate that mudcat isn't the only place talking about the trite and obvious.

What Makes's a Woman Happy?


A man who's not afraid to tell her that he Loves her.

A man who's not afraid to tell others that he Loves her.

A man who means those words, every single time he says them to her.

A man who says them to her often.

A man who finally works out that the only thing in life which truly matters is to Love and be Loved in return.

A man who finally realises that *true* Love is never one-sided.

And...a man who at last, opens his eyes, the ones he's been keeping so tight shut against his emotions and sees the treasure that lies waiting, right in front of him.

A Little Bit of Love











Failing that...a man who keeps her in chocolate...or indeed, covers her in chocolate.

But I don't think we should go there, because that should probably be in a different thread entitled 'What Makes a Man Happy'..
