It’s funny. When Jeff and I speak at marriage conferences, or when I speak at women’s events, it is extremely common for a man to come up to us with a particular LOOK in his eyes as he is about to open his mouth to say something. It is hard to describe the look, but when I see it, I know exactly what he is going to say.
The look is part grateful, part absolutely bemused and part the look of a man who is about to say—“I have to tell you something!”
Cue our grins. We already know where this is going.
“I read For Men Only.” (Or, “I heard you guys on a podcast” or “I was at one of your conferences.”) “And that thing you said about the open windows . . . !” If his wife is nearby, she usually looks at him with a huge smile. “I had no idea!”
So, to all my male friends out there, here’s a short version of a little tip that will yield BIG results in your marriage or relationship. (And frankly, will help reduce drama and improve the quality of any relationship, including with a daughter, female colleague, mother-in-law, and so on.) There are three simple things you probably don’t know, but need to!
