The End: Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man

As I wrap-up this book, Act Like a Lady: Think Like a Man, I am taking notes.  I am also noting that me, as described by Steve Harvey are not that hard to get or figure out but us women have to be smarter to understand a man is just a man it’s just that simple and we can never change them we can ad and make suggestions but at the end of the day they are just simple men.  They want a simple life with a little pleasure but who doesn’t want that. 

Chapter 3 is entitled the playbook: How to win the game.  I was thinking to myself what game is that?  Because, I don’t like to play games and just when I think men are simple creatures these are the games that we me ladies but already know the play book to survive. So, here it goes.

Section 9, Men Respect Standards-Get Some.  This was a good chapter to read because I want to know just how men respect standards.  So Steve says while men appreciate in when women let them know up front what they require in a relationship, I firmly believe women need to step back every once in a while and let the man show you what he’s made of- you know, prove that he’s worthy of your time.  OK, I can respect that and it is often times I do want the man to figure some things out, I don’t want to have to be the one to tell him everything.  Sometimes women can make it too easy for a man and I think that is what Steve was trying to say.  We need to just be a lady and let the man be the man. I know it’s hard because for so many of us we are so use to doing our own thing and letting men know what we like and don’t or get lost.   So what are these requirements?  Steve is suggesting that we offer up information on what we don’t like as to what we do like.  That sounds hard to men.  How do I do that?  It’s so easy for me to tell a guy what I like because I figure they want to know about that first.  Recently, I decided to add some items to my standards list and apply them to a recent date and it worked.  I told a guy if we are going on a first couple of dates TGIF Friday’s was not what I had in mind. Of course I didn’t say it exactly like that, but I did let him know I didn’t like that place in fact, I hate their food so much.  Now the true test was what was going to be the alternative restaurant to have dinner.  He picked Sweet Water Tavern and that was like 5 steps better than TGIF Friday’s.  So in the end the date was nice and I and I told him how nice the place was and that is the kind of places I like to eat so I hope he never picks a bar style like that again.  Section 10 was also a good one because I used this on my first date as well.  Section 10 was called: The five questions every woman should ask before she gets in too deep.  Question 1: What are your short-term goals?  Knowing what a man’s short term goals are important because these goals are simple everyday moves and steps that allow the man to reach and fulfill his long term goals.  His short term goals also means that we is working on something, that he is not a loser, my favorite word and that he is not settled with just what he has, that he wants more and wants to do better.  I give an A+ to short term goals but if I hear a man tell me that in his short term goal is to find a woman he can have a great friendship that makes me smile but it also depends on if they want a committed relationship as a long term goal.  Question 2 was of course, what are your long term goals? If he has no real long term goals he may not be looking to settle down or even get married in the future so I ask this questions right away.  I asked a guy once if he wanted to get married one day and that seems to be a long term goal in my mind and he said no.  I want to get married of course and should I stop dating him for that?  I don’t think so.  He may one day ass marriage to his long term goal and while I’m still getting to know him the short term goals are what I care about the most in a new relationship. Question 3, what are your views on relationships?  Men may think this is a trick question and Steve suggests waiting for this question after a new dates and I agree.  How I think men would answer this question is I think it’s not for everyone and it’s important to make sure you are happy in that situation.  How I would answer the question is to say I think relationships are the most important thing in life.  Whether it’s with a mate, family, or on the job.  Most people do not know how to build good relationships anymore.  I also think that men think a relationship in most cases men a committed situation, but it don’t have to be I would rephrase the question and ask what type of relationships to you have with the people you most care about in your life.  Their answer will show me if he loves the people in his life, care about them and care about the relationship its self.  Some men just throw away a good relationship because they are tripping but that’s their lost.  Question 4 is what do you think about me?  I am not sure if I have ever asked this question but Steve says before you have sex with them guy ask them this question.  You have the right to know what he thinks about you, more than just you are pretty and you are funny as the basic things you already know about yourself but you want to know what he think is about you to determine if you are someone he plans to continue to know and keep around.  He the guy tells you something like I think you have a bad attitude then that is something you might want to work on ladies, if he says you know I think we are smarter than you give yourself credit for that is some new shit…lol some shit that might put a smile on my face and hug him a little longer.  Question 5 is how do you feel about me?  Steve does not want us to confuse these questions.  He says that these questions have two different answers and should be cleared stated as two different questions.  So what is a good how do you feel about me answer?  I would say if a man told me he feels that I have a good spirit and when he is around him I make he feel like a better person.  A guy told me he thought I had a good spirit about me and that was something new but it felt good to know he felt that I was sweet and was brought good to his life already. 

Section 11 is The 90 day rule: Getting the respect you deserve.  This chapter was hard for me to read because it is true we should enforce the 90 day rule and I’m in the process of dating two guys right now and the 90 rule is hard but it’s important.  First of all I don’t want to be sleeping with everyone who takes me on a nice date I want them to know that what’s between my legs is the best thing in life and it isn’t free.  Plus, I don’t know what their attentions are yet if they want to be with me or just sleep with me.  This is also hard because you have to actually date the person in those 90 days.  Do people know how to date anymore?  I would like to be on a date twice a week, it can be anything it can be a free date, a cheap date and whatever date but as long as we are getting to know each other and spend time with each other that is important.  So how does the 90 day rule work?  Ladies, the man has to prove that he deserves the cookies.  In 90 days he needs to be putting out his best and making you feel that you he is capable of the job and that you picked the best person for the job but he must know he is not the only one for the job that out of a pool of candidates he was the top but not the only one, that was funny but it makes sense.  A man will respect you if you tell him to wait.  Steve says yes they can wait and I think they can wait too.  Steve offers some great 90 day rule activities that should take place so that you can get to know him and know what ya’ll have in common. Going to dinner and movies all the time is not telling you much about the person but if you do activities that allow the two of you to get to know each other then he is showing you that he is willing to do anything just to be with you and when the time is right he is enjoy every moment of you.  I like that Steve! 

Section 12: If he’s meeting the kids after you decide he’s the one it’s too late.  I do not have any kids but I refer to my mother on this chapter.  I knew my step father ever since I was six years-old.  My mom was a young mother and put me first while she was in school so my step father knew from the beginning that I was a priority.  I remember many dates they had where I was with them.  Even weekend trips, I was right there.  I wonder if my dad was ever like not again why is she is?  Lol but I look back and I should have been there for most of the trips and dates because he was getting to know my mother and she was not this single mother he needed to know what else she brought to the table.  It’s been over 20 years now and I love my step father and we have a great relationship I call him dad no questions asked.  I think because my mom brought me around he was able to get to know me too and build a relationship with me.  Steve is saying that when the ladies don’t bring the guy around you don’t even know if he will get along with your kids but you want to date the dude? That doesn’t make sense and it don’t.  Your kids should be important to you enough that you want to know if this man is not only right for you but your kids.  Section 13: Strong and Independent and Lonely Women.  This was another section that I took notes on as well and will refer to more than once.  There are women who are successful and doing their thing, and that is great but those who are looking for a man forget that a man still wants to be a man and give them everything.  Just think about it, you may think you have everything but you don’t you don’t have a man, now do you so allow the ma to be a man and still take care of you and do all the things that he can do for you.  From the beginning, women are taught to be strong and independent, meaning don’t let people walk all over you, be strong so that you are not viewed as weak.  It does not mean be so strong that you make your man weak and don’t be too independent to the point you push the right one away.  Everyone wants love, even Oprah!  Those women who be little their men and have this “I don’t need a man for nothing” attitude end up being the ones that are lonely.  Steve says don’t stop doing your thing but work on being a lady and he gives a few examples of how to be a lady in all areas.  Section 14: How to get the ring.  I am nowhere near that in my life but it was interesting to read.  Those women who are in relationships that are waiting to get married, Steve offers more helpful tips, the first one is to set some requirements and set a date.  If you living with him have his kids and do everything a wife would do?  He is not going to rush to marry you.  I think I knew that already.  Men view marriage differently than women and one thing I do know you can’t rush a man to do anything.  Steve wants women to continue to set some standards until they get the ring and then walk down the aisle.  Tell him that you are not going to wait around forever and if you have to threaten that you will leave to test him, then do so because if he has done all the things with you like a husband would do then they don’t want to risk losing you.  The final Section was 15: The quick answers to questions we want to ask.  Some of the questions I couldn’t believe women wanted to know but there is one I just needed to know the answer to, does it matter if your woman likes sports. I never really knew the real answer.  I use to have a boyfriend who would never want to come over and watch football games on Sunday at my house because he said he knew I didn’t watch football games, but I still wanted to see him.  I never understood why he just didn’t come over, but months later he told me that because he didn’t want me to just be sitting there and not understand the game, ask all these questions he just wanted to do “him” and watch the game.  I was bad for a moment but got over it because he was right.  I would have had so many questions and he just wanted one day a week to be a man and do something he liked for just him.  So Steve’s answer was if I don’t like sports, go do something else.  I finally got the answer, thank you god!

This was the last blog entry for the book and I really enjoyed it.  Steve has gotten lots of media attention based on the book and I think its good read for those 21 and older and for all races.  It is one of those books that I can put in a reference category.  Stay tuned for what’s coming up in April.

Jealousy Set The Fire: The Ending

By Chapter 62, Thandy and Dr. Gabrielle have blended their families.  The boys are living with him not their mother maybe for some type of comfort due to the divorce.  During dinner, Dr. Gabrielle tells Thandy that he is taking her to the Medical Association Ball, an event that only whose who attends.  The limo arrives to the house and to her surprise its the Governor Sloane, who is a dear friend, his wife and her good friend Philly, the one who kept her grounded and told her to leave Dr. Gabrielle.  They all show up and they head to the ball as the black elite of Atlanta.  Everyone is amazed that Dr. Gabrielle brought a woman that was not his wife Etienne.  This made Thandy a little nervous and even more when some of his crazy old girls were there, even Angel.  She talked to the doctor and Thandy and he told her he would tell her all about things later.  There was no later, Thandy wanted to go home right away.  By 5:00am, the home was on fire.  Thandy and Dr. Gabrielle attempted to get everyone out including the maid but when the doctor realized Thandy was still stuck inside he ran in the burning home. Thandy was OK, but Dr. Gabrielle died.  He died trying to save his family and those he loved the most.  After the boys were treated by a doctor, Thandy and the kids headed to a hotel where Etienne and Sloane met then up there.  Etienne felt so bad for her because she knew her and her ex really loved each other.  Etienne gave her some money, for whatever reason but it seemed like a thank you gesture for taking care of her won kids.  Sloane and Thandy tried to help the police figure out who set the fire and Angel came to mind.  At the funeral of Dr. Gabrielle it was a very emotional one.  Thandy felt it was important for everyone to know how much she loved him.  She was later arrested and at her trial she pleaded guilty and was given life.  Thandy felt sorry for her and knew that she didn’t want anyone to die as she stood and told the court.  It had been a year since Dr. Gabrielle died and Thandy and her daughter are visiting the grave sit.  Thandy learned soon after the fire that she was pregnant with Dr. Gabrielle’s child. It was a cold January day  and it was her son’s birthday. 

That was the end?  Dry right?  The ending seem rushed and weird.  My feelings on Thandy is that she was a smart woman but she let a man twice take her around the world and back.  She had a bad habit of falling for men who are about themselves first and her second.  She lost a great job a home in Chicago and some stability for her daughter.  Now she has a ex husband who is in jail for life raising a daughter going to college and a little boy by a man who was married and now is dead.  What more pain could she bring on to herself.  I thought the relationship with her and her mother would develop more and they would talk but it seems as though they talked through Montana.  So this whole time it was her grandfather who called her his January Girl, besides her birthday being in January, it was never explained why the book was called that.   Over all, I like the connection everyone had, how it all came to a end later but I like to learn something from reading books and I learned that you can never truly have something that was never yours to begin with.

Tomorrow, the first posting for Act Like A Lady: Think Like A Man by: Steve Harvey.

He wants a future with the mistress

Etienne is settled with the money Dr. Gabrielle gave her but she wants a better life for her and her boys.  Dr. Gabrielle calling Thandy has got her a little unfocused but she is thinking about why he even called and why know he is acting like he care more about her than ever.  Back at work, Thandy is tough as a boss and even tougher as a black woman in charge.  At a team meeting she challenges her employees to do better and make company numbers.  One of her employees, she suspects is misusing company funds and for awhile had the suspect investigated.  To her discovery, she was right he stole $3million instead of suing him; she gave him another chance and made him pay it all back.  He did.  She has minority and younger clients in mind to replace him.   Dr. Gabrielle has been making a real life for himself.  Being a surgeon had given him some perks including membership at a prestigious golf club that many years ago didn’t accept blacks not even his own father whom was a surgeon as well.  Back at the golf club, Dr. Gabrielle is playing cards and drinking with several other black doctors, the governor and his favorite bartender.  Dr. Gabrielle has a private evening with all of the men.  One of his surgeon friends is having problems with his pregnant girlfriend who left him and Dr. Gabrielle is missing Thandy bad and trying to figure out how to show her he really loves her.  For the first time in the book, Dr. Gabrielle lost a patient.  He performed his normal incredible surgery but after he thought it was OK the man’s brain continued to bleed and he died.  The patient was very much loved by his family and his wife really loved him.  He had a tumor in the brain.  Dr. Gabrielle makes a big decision in his life.  He decides to head to Chicago and win the love of Thandy despite the heavy snow stormed that locked everyone in their home.  He shows up on her doorstep reciting Shakespeare.  He invites him in after feeling sorry for him.  He tells her he is sorry that the divorce is going through and he wants a life with her and he asks her why she leaves.  Thandy wants him to know it has nothing to do with him but that she was happy with having her own and being a mother to her child and providing the best for them.  She knew that allowing him back in her life would make things worse.  After a pot of coffee and lots of talking she finally sees a new Dr. Gabrielle in her eyes.  They fall asleep.  Montana was stuck at a friend’s house because of the snow storm and when she gets home she sees Dr. Gabrielle appear, her mother is sleep.  Dr. Gabrielle talks to her and gets to know her but she already figured who he was, the man several years ago that drove them to North Carolina, the man who impregnated her mother and the man who her mother ran away from.  Dr. Gabrielle tells Montana that he loves her mother and wants to be in both their lives. 

This was the first holiday that Jack was going to spend with Thandy and Montana.  He stayed in Chicago during Christmas and New Years.  During this time, Thandy tells Jack of her past.  Yvetta calls Thandy home and was surprised to learn Jack was there.  Jack for the first time told her he loved her and didn’t want to let her go.  Thandy’s grandfather died in the hospital.  The man who called her his January girl was dead and Thandy and Jack headed back to Atlanta for the funeral.  Yvetta is getting to know Jack and Montana and dealing with the issue of not knowing who her real father is.  Thandy and her mother decide to let Montana see some pictures of Monty, her father and consider letting her see him in jail.  Yvetta thinks this is a good idea and she is starting to be a better mother and grandmother.   So now that Thandy and Dr. Gabrielle are together she decided to commute back and forth from Chicago to Atlanta until she decided what to do about her career and future.  Dr. Gabrielle is moving along with the divorce with Etienne and at the courts the divorce was final.  Etienne didn’t ask for more and no words were said.  After it was all said and done and Dr. Gabrielle was no longer married to Etienne, he walked out the courtroom and hugged Thandy to say it was over.  Etienne witnessed the hug and a part of her wanted to go up to them but a side of her understood the love they shared and walked away.  Dr. Gabrielle moves Thandy into his home in Atlanta just in time for his sons to visit and meet her for the first time.  Thandy feels comfortable in the home and thinks that they boys need to be comfortable as well.  The boys seem to love Thandy and ask her can they call her mom.  She by no means wants to replace their mother.  Montana brings up the fact to see her real father in jail; Thandy and Dr. Gabrielle tell her they will work on it.  Although there is a maid at the house, Thandy still wants to make dinner herself.   Dr. Gabrielle surprises Thandy with a sexy dress, the dress is for a ball that he is taking her too.  She is rather shocked maybe because she has never really been in public with Dr. Gabrielle.  Angel is back on the hunting game and heads to a conference nearby to pick up more men.  She games and lies don’t work, in fact someone recognized her and she headed home in disappointment.  Angel is so upset that Dr. Gabrielle left her.  She thought they could have a future together.  Her friend Stephanie was the real woman who was pregnant and her boyfriend is Doggie who works with Dr. Gabrielle.  Stephanie finally tells her that she knew all about Dr. Gabrielle and Thandy’s relationship but wanted Angel to move on and try to meet someone that is available to her.  Stephanie sees a bottle of pills and water and assumes Angel is trying to kill herself but she throws them away.  Stephanie mentions that she and Doggie will be attending the same ball Dr. Gabrielle and Thandy will be attending.  Should she have done that?

As her life spins out of control and her sexual escapades carry her toward a dangerous choice, Zoe is racing against time to uncover the source of her “fatal attraction” — as chilling secrets tumble forth from the recesses of a woman’s mind, and perilous temptations lead toward a climax that can threaten her sanity, her marriage…and her life.

Moving on without you. I can do bad all by myself

Thandy’s mother Yvetta is introduced in Chapter 14, and she is now living in Chicago.   Somewhat of a absent mother, Yvetta is not proud of her daughter’s affair with a married man for 10 years.  In fact, Yvetta likes Thandy’s sister much better, a woman who got married and had children and had a nice and peaceful life.

Thandy’s father is sick in the hospital and Yvetta visits often to care for him.  He forgets things sometimes like his daughter’s name and some key events in life, but he is doing well.  The relationship between.  Thandy has not seen her mother in years.  Dr. Gabrielle calls Yvetta to ask where Thandy is and she has no idea.  Grace, a good friend of Yvetta reminds her of what life use to be like.  The days when her husband was a decent working man and life was simple but she also remembers how Thandy was the out of control daughter and ran away from home with Monty after being caught smoking.  They ran to Atlanta.

Thandy and Monty married and had a daughter name Montana.  As Grace and Yvetta goes back in time about the pass, she makes a decision not to reach out to Thandy, to just leave her in Atlanta and not check on her  daughter and granddaughter.

Etienne, Dr. Gabrielle’s wife is convinced now that her husband has not only been having an affair with Thandy but with another woman as well. Based on trip records and the nights not coming home and the no sex after a year, she now knows.  Etienne seeks the help of a friend and a lawyer.  Wynn, the friend and the lawyer promise to help her but has no idea what’s going to happen  Lots of evidence has already been gathered that proves he was cheating.  To get away and get her mind off things after she filed for divorce, Etienne boarded a plane back to her hometown in Washington, DC.  Etienne’s father was a preacher.  She had a very conservative family and always took her academics seriously, nothing like Thandy.    Etienne’s mother welcomes her but wants to understand why she is divorcing Dr. Gabrielle.  While in Washington, DC, Etienne left her two sons with a girlfriend.  Dr. Gabrielle has called her mother looking for her and the kids but she didn’t want Etienne to know that.

I am not sure how to feel about Etienne and her relationship with her mother.  Her mother seems caring as Etienne tells her mother about this affair her husband is having and even throws up in the bathroom, but it seems as though her mother wants her to get herself together and try to work things out and not to leave Dr. Gabrielle or better yet leave the lavish lifestyle behind.

The lawyer calls Etienne and tells her that Dr. Gabrielle is going through the divorce but wants to settle.  He offers her 5 million dollars and sharing the vacation home.  She thinks about it and up the cost to 15 million. 

 By Chapter 23, Thandy is living in Chicago and working on herself but thinking about how much she wasted with Dr. Gabrielle.  Thandy moved her and her teen daughter to a nice neighborhood.  She wanted to start a new life that did not include Dr. Gabrielle and one that her daughter could be proud of. 

Thandy has taken a new job that is promising and it is everything that sh was looking for.  As she gets read for her first day on the job in chapter 24, she is amazed that she is working at a fortune 500 company.  She does a lot of thinking almost second guessing herself.  She remembers the interview and he she was not going to take the job if it meant to leave Jack, just when Etienne calls, and tells her Dr. Gabrielle is seeing another woman besides them two and confirms a trip with another woman, Thandy takes the job offer and moves.  The new job came with great perks.  A driver, a office, a laptop and blackberry, 2 secretaries and a 7 figure salary.  She liked the perks but it was going to take some getting used to.  Let’s stop at  Chapter 26.  Next posting on Friday @ 10am.

Questions

1. Do you think Thandy will be happy in Chicago?

2. Why do you think Dr. Gabrielle had no problem with going thru wit the divorce?

Sexy Old Friend Piss in the Bed: Here Comes another Bad Boy

It’s been months since Danielle last saw Ron and now she spots him in the club.  She wants him back but it’s not a good idea.  Remember, she is still dealing with her daughter’s issues finding that her daughter lied, her daughter is pregnant and now living with the grandmother.  Renee has been going to clubs a lot lately seems like she is looking for a new man to get over finding her husband John in the bed with another man. 

Danielle is hitting the clubs hard too and she meets Chance.  The finest brother in all of ever-ever land.  She acts like this man is a prince in a fairy tale story.  Chance ends up working with Danielle at the hospital and she is turned on but the simple fact that he even has a job because we all know Ron didn’t’. 

By now I’m at Chapter 11 and Renee is just a freak but on to Danielle she thinks sleeping with Ron is going to get him back.  For some reason the love making was unusual.  She describes it as being rough, and too much.  When giving him a blow job he pushes her head down deeper.  What is going on here?  Oh no he didn’t, Ron leave right after fucking Danielle, she is confused.

Renee runs into an old high school buddy name Landon, she takes him home to sleep with him and guess what ya’ll the grown ass man pissed in her bed while he was sleeping. Yes I said it this grown ass man pissed in her bed.  He had the nerve to look surprised and run out the house.

Danielle’s new man Calvin is so sweet.  He is a real man, cooking for her, caring for her and really trying to take the next step but Danielle had her mind on getting back with Ron. 

Here comes Kayla and Nadine.  The other two ladies of the friendship circle.  Kayla is getting married but are the ladies really happy for her or jealous?  I can’t tell. 

Danielle is now dealing with three men by Chapter 15.  Ron the loser, Calvin her boo, and Chance the sexy guy working at the hospital.  She likes the thrill and excitement. I figure these women are in their 40’s; they need to get it together.  They all have kids and sleeping with everybody in sight. 

Danielle and Chance goes on a first date and that bad boy image creeps up and turns her on. She is describing how good the sex is and how much she wants it.  I can’t believe she had sex with him on the first night and Calvin is at home not having a clue.  I’ll stop at Chapter 18. 

Should Renee ask Landon to replace her pissy mattresses? 

Why does Danielle fall for the bad boys?
