The other day, I was in the bathroom when one of the light fixtures above the mirror fell off, crashed to the ground, and shattered everywhere. It scared me so badly I screamed! As soon as my husband heard the noise, he came running to see if I was ok.
As soon as he saw broken glass everywhere on the bathroom floor, he told me, “You go out of the bathroom. I don’t want you to get hurt. I’ll clean this up.” I tiptoed out around the broken glass, while he went to get a broom.
This is one of the many things I appreciate about men. Whether it’s broken glass that needs sweeping, a jar that needs opening, or a spider that needs killing (or gently setting outside without killing), they are right there, ready and willing to help.
I’ve never understood people who say things like “chivalry is dead” or “there are no good men left in the world.” I see good men everywhere I look.
I appreciate men like my husband, who wants to do everything he can to make me happy. I am constantly blown away by his love and generosity.
I appreciate men like the ones I’m dating (I’m in an open marriage), who enjoy pleasing me — in and outside of the bedroom. These men are kind, committed, honest, and loving. They genuinely care about what’s going on in my life, and actually like listening to me talk (even when I’m rambling on and on about nothing…).
And, I appreciate men like you reading this right now, who loves and respects women, and who wants to form real relationships with women.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from spending time with men, it’s that you guys are woefully under-appreciated for who you are and everything that you do!
Your good deeds get overshadowed by the violence and misogyny perpetrated by others.
Your struggles get dismissed with comments like, “Yeah, but look at what women have to go through!” As if the problems that one group of people faces somehow makes it ok to ignore or brush off the problems of another.
So, I’ve decided to start a new tradition here at The Art of Flirting: Man Appreciation Monday.
Every Monday, I’m going to sharing something that I appreciate about men. It might come in the form of a specific story from a man in my own life (like my husband cleaning up the broken glass in the bathroom). Or, it might simply be something that I love about men (because, seriously, you guys are pretty great 🙂 ).
I’m going to start by saying how much I appreciate you for reading my blog, and listening to what I have to say about women.
I’ve actually had some people say things to me like, “Wait, there are men out there who actually care what women think?”
Of course you care what women think! So many of you men are dying to know what women think, what we feel, who we are, and how you can understand us better — all because you want to unlock the secret to making us happy.
In many ways, you men care more deeply about making a woman happy than you do about your own happiness. And I believe you deserve appreciation for that — and for all that you do!
Thank you for being who you are.
Happy Man Appreciation Monday!
