Reader Question:

I would like to know more about what women want in life?

-Nicholas

Dr. Wendy Walsh’s Answer:

Nicholas, you are as confused as the women themselves. Right now women are faced with so many choices — to marry or not, to live together, to have sex and date like a man, or to put education and career above their intimate relationships.

Here’s my advice to you. Make your own relationship life plan — and interview women until you find one who shares your plan. Bet you’ll find out that plenty of women haven’t even thought about it yet.

Oh, and one other thing: Women want to be heard and be given kindness and care. But not at the beginning. When you first meet, go slow and dole out your kindness carefully.
