I’m not a comedian, but I heard this was Rock T’s Joke of the Day one morning when I was driving to work:

Q: What does Snoop Dogg say when it rains?

A: Fa’ Drizzle.

Super cheesy, I know, but he liked it. We were on the downside of THE argument and I was trying everything I could come up with the cheer him up. I’d bounced around to his favorite song, put on my shortest shorts, and I’d even tried to get him to jump in the bed with me. Nothing worked.

Then I pulled out the one joke that I always remember and he smiled. Not because it was funny, but because I was being so corny.

I’ve finally started to realize that my cheesiness is a sign of having my guard down and just relaxing. During so much of my day, I have to be “on” for work and my guard is up. When I get cheesy, he knows that I’m just being myself and he loves that.

#11 Let his mom be his mom.

First of all, she will always be better at being his mom than you will be.

Here’s the deal:
My “him” has a birthday coming up.

I’ve been debating what to get him for his gift.

He loves his mom’s strawberry cake.

My bestie tells me to make him a strawberry cake.

WRONG ANSWER! Go directly to jail. Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200.

That could only end one way. I’d end up disappointed because even though I can bake the heck out of a strawberry cake, he LOVES his mom’s strawberry cake. One of the creepiest things a woman can do is starting “mothering” her lover.

Besides, his mom has already raised him so all you need to do is love him.

#8. Say, “Help me fix this.”

I may not understand why men like space (or perhaps I just don’t want to face the fact that it’s just the truth), but I do understand this one and I’ve mastered it.

 

Men deserve to feel manly. It’s probably not politically correct to say things, but who cares. This is my blog and I know this one works. I don’t think you should run around asking your love to help you with simple and menial tasks, but if it’s anything that could possibly cause you to break a nail and your manicure is less than 3 days old, you should say these 4 little words:

 

Help

 

Me

 

Fix

 

This.

 

Pay special attention to the period after the word “this.”

 

The key to making sure your man feels loved is in closing your mouth and moving on to whatever is next on your agenda once he starts “fixing it.” Don’t tell him how you want it done. Don’t critique. Don’t give advice on it. Just zip your lips, move on and let him fix it.

 

Say thanks when he’s done and he will love you for it.

 

#7. Give him space.

This is the hardest thing in the world for me.

I love to talk.

I love getting attention from “my him”

I think that once we master this, we master our relationships.

I can’t really explain why it works, but it works.

#7 Way to Love Him….. Give him space. ┬áThat’s really all I can come up with, because this is one of those things that I just don’t understand, but since I know it works I try to do it anyway.
