See below from Chapter 3 “What Women Really Want”
“A woman wants to be reassured every day that she is loved and adored, and she needs his words and intimacy as proof. Showing appreciation of anything a woman does in the home is also decoded as an expression of love, and love implies a man will share his resources with her. In divorce cases, women regularly say that men take them for granted and never show appreciation of their efforts in the home. This is because a man feels that his efforts of being the main breadwinner (as most men still are), fixing broken things around the home, solving problems or changing light bulbs are sufficient proof of his appreciation and love.”
“Women believe that if a man really loves a woman, he should show it every day with his words and actions. This is a difficult concept for a man to grasp because he shows the expression of his love by “doing things for her”.
“The man’s brain is organised to measure his self-worth and contribution by what he does or achieves, not by what he says or feels.”
