They say men are like dogs, a fact that almost every woman comes to terms with at some point in her life. Just like cute and loving dogs which are sometimes difficult to do without even if they are wild, have poor grooming and diabolical behavioural skills as they will sometimes affectionately lick you all over before turning around and urinate in your favourite pair of shoe.
Just like dogs, the male DNA is either a wonderful partner or a loser. But in the end, the determining factor of what a man finally becomes is the kind of woman he chooses to settle down with.
Men are generally forgetful, untidy and a terrible timekeepers. They also suffer from serious bouts of selective amnesias, domestic handicap and will probably cheat on you given slight opportunity. But the good news is they can be taught new tricks. And while no man can ever be the ‘perfect man’, he can be taught to be a better man.
How a woman acts or what she is willing to put up with influences the way her man will treat her. For those wo men who choose to be the ‘good old wife’ who takes in everything her man throws at her, do not complain when he urinates at your doorstep.
If you do not want to be the long suffering woman who goes around spreading misery because her man is not treating her right, you need to train your man on what is acceptable and what is not.
The best way to train a man is not with sweet smiles and a docile personality, you need to be a b**ch. In every woman there is the ‘mad village woman persona’ who is harsh, bitchy and does not put up with crap. And this comes handy during man training.
So as a woman you need to get in touch with your ‘mad village woman persona’ and kick some butt. If you have a man, you need to train him on good grooming; you need to teach him on what time to come home by giving him a curfew. Also your man needs to know that unfaithfulness is unacceptable.
No man is born good, the secret to getting a good man is simple; sit on him.
