Not All Men Are Created Equal

My best friend pointed out to me yesterday that not all men are alike. Some may get into the whole romance thing and enjoy planning a getaway weekend with their girlfriend or wife. For others, romance is a necessary evil -- something that must be done like taking out the trash or going to the dentist.

So why do we do something romantic for the woman we love? Well, you might be saying that by doing something nice for her, she will do something nice for you.

True (hopefully).

Or out of an altruistic sense you may just want to do something that proves that you really do love her. Regardless of the reason, the hardest part is figuring out what to do AND finding the time to do it.

For those of you who are married, you know that a committed relationship can be difficult to manage. Stress from work, kids, in-laws, and finances can drive the two of you apart. Getting caught in the daily routine can lead to something that adds on even more stress -- divorce.

So no matter what type of guy that you are, think about this the next time you lament about the lack of time you have to do something romantic for your significant other. A little time spent now will save you a lot of time later AND make you a hell of a lot happier.
