Sometimes they do! It's always worked to tell them what you want. I think men want to make women happy and please them. it's a lot easier for them to give you what you want if you tell then what you want. It's also very important to thank them when they give it to you. Men are amazing! I suggest you look within your self and find out if you think your worthy of having what you say you are wanting and if your willing to acknowledge the men in your life for the things they ghave givien you and how great they are.

What do women really want? apparently, women with a college degree want a stable husband, and the rest want...something different. While the debate muddles along the statistics continue to "tell the tale"..................................
In 2004 there were 5,080,000 unmarried couples in America.

Most younger Americans now spend some time living together outside of marriage

Over half of all first marriages are now preceded by living together, compared to virtually
none 50 years ago. (Bumpass and Lu, 2000)

Between 1960 and 2004, the number of unmarried couples in America increased by over 1200%

About a quarter of unmarried women age 25 to 39 are currently living with a partner and an
additional quarter have lived with a partner at some time in the past.

41% of American women ages 15-44 have cohabited (lived with an unmarried different-sex partner)
at some point. This includes 9% of women ages 15-19, 38% of women ages 20-24, 49% of women

In addition recently released stats show that(in the interim of the survey) a full 90% of women with college degrees
that had given birth were married....compare that to the birthrate of the un-marrieds.
.
(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Cohabitation, Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage in
the United States." Vital Health and Statistics Series 23, Number 22, Department of Health and
Human Services, 2002.)

The number of unmarried couples living together increased 72% between 1990 and 2000.
(U.S. Census Bureau, 2000)

The number of unmarried couples living together increased tenfold from 1960 to 2000.

Most unmarried partners who live together are 25 to 34 years old.

Slightly more than 8% of coupled households in the USA are cohabiting heterosexuals.

Women's median age at first marriage rose from 20.8 in 1970 to 26 in 2004; men's rose
from 23.2 to 27.

In 1960, there were 90 married couples for every cohabiting couple.

There is one cohabiting couple for every 12 married couples.

By the year 2010, if the present trend continues, there will be 7 married couples
for every cohabiting couple.

1 in 3 single women choose to live with their partners before
marriage, compared to 1 in 10 in the 1950's (Whitman 1997).

Living together unmarried is more prevalent on the West Coast than anywhere else in the country. About
half of married couples living in the West of all ages lived together before married. By contrast,
for example, only 25% of the couples in the South lived together (Gallup Poll, Dec. 1997)

Democrats and liberals are significantly more likely to have lived together before they got married than
Republicans and conservatives (Gallup Poll, Dec. 1997).

Cohabitation is far more common in other countries such as Sweden, Denmark, Canada and some
Latin American countries (Seltzer, 2000, Hall & Zhao, 1995).

In England, 70% of single women choose to live with their partners
before marriage, compared to just 5% in the mid-1960s.(Ciavola 1997).

In Sweden there are a little over two married couples for every cohabiting couple.

50% to 60% of couples coming for marriage in first world countries are
living together before marriage (Cherlin, 2002, Seltzer, 2000; Teachman, 2003).

More men and women are moving in together, sharing an apartment and a bed without
getting married first and doing it more openly today (Waite & Gallagher 2000:36).

Nearly 50% of those in their 20's and 30's cohabit (Bumpass & Lu 1998;
Bumpass & Sweet 1995; Sweet 1989). Cohabitation has become the normative experience today.

The median duration of cohabitation is 1.3 years (Bumpass & Lu 1998; Wu 1995).
(For an overview of the length of cohabitation of those who visit this site, see the
"Cohabiting Couples Survey" on the bottom of the Home Page.)

Long-term cohabiting relationships in America are far rarer than successful marriages
(Bumpass & Sweet 1989: 615-25).

Couples who are less educated, have a low religious orientation, and less economic resources
are more likely to cohabit (Seltzer, 2000; Amato, Johnson, Booth, & Rogers, 2003).

Low levels of religious importance/participation are related to higher levels of
cohabitation and lower rates of subsequent marriage (Markey 1999; Krishnan
1998; Lye & Waldron 1997; Thornton, Axinn & Hill 1992; Liefbroer 1991;
Sweet 1989). (For an overview of the religious faith of those who visit this web site,
(See the "Cohabiting Couples Survey " on the bottom of the Home Page.)

Cohabitation rates are 8.2% for Mormons, 20 to 24% for Protestants, 23.1% for
Catholics, 32.5% for Jews, and 44.8% for nonreligious Americans (Mims 1999).
The probability that the first union takes the form of a cohabiting arrangement is highest
for Jews and lowest for Mormons. Although a Jewish upbringing is associated with
marrying at a later age, the probability of early formation of a union, broadly, defined,
is the same for Jews and Catholics, and is only .3 points below the estimate for
mainline Protestants (Lehrer 2000).
(For an overview of the religious faith of those who visit this web site,
(See the "Cohabiting Couples Survey " on the bottom of the Home Page.)

Cohabitation rates are 4.1% for those aged 15-19, 11.2% for 20-24, 9.8%
for 25-29, 7.5% for 30-34, 5.2% for 35-39, and 4.4% for 40-44 years of age
(Natl. Center for Health Statistics, 1995). The Census Bureau finds that
cohabiting is most popular in the 24-35 age group, with 1.6 million couples.
The next highest number of couples -- 931,000 -- are in the under-25 age group.


Those not completing high school are nearly twice as likely to cohabit as those
completing college. Some 30 to 40% of college students are cohabiting at any
given time. 41% of women without a high school diploma cohabit whereas, 26%
of women with college degrees cohabit. Marriage for cohabitors is positively related
to higher levels of education and economics. (Qian 1998; Bumpass & Lu 1998;
Johnson 1996; Thornton, Axinn, Teachman 1995; Willis & Michael, 1994)

I don't think it is possible is it? I mean everytime I come up with the "right" thing, they change it and make it "wrong" to keep me off balance. Come on ladies, isn't this how it works sometimes?

Okie dokie smokie Yes i believe a man does know what a woman wants,Men are like a light switch,they can turn you on with there high voltage or they can shut you down like a dead battery and they know exactly what to say if a woman is sad or if a woman needs cheering up or if a woman wants to be hugged or loved ,men do know what a woman wants,but what a woman wants is a whole different ball game

Most women think they know what men want and they post ads like
"like to fish, can operate a chain saw or a motorcycle." Pulllease.
If we wanted a buddy, we would stick with the guys. It women who dont take the time
to learn men or worse yet, feel like they "know" what men want...not.
Dating is a lot like fishing. Ten percent of the fishermen catch 90 percent of the fish becuase they
study what they are angling for. Most women haven't got a clue about men.

The world is littered with statistics, and the average person is bombarded with five statistics a day1. Statistics can be misleading and sometimes deliberately distorting. There are three kinds of commonly recognised untruths:

Lies, damn lies and statistics.
- Mark Twain
This quote from Mark Twain is accurate; statistics are often used to lie to the public because most people do not understand how statistics work.

Yes some men do care, I for one have to please before being pleased, and that is a fact, and I do not mean that in only a physical way. So there must be lots of other ones out there, just find us. lol
