I, for one, have spent the better part of my life trying to figure out what women really want in a man. I'm not alone nor am I the only one that has been confused from time to time.

I think it dates back a few generations. Perhaps to my greatest grandpa who was a real caveman.

The first thing us guys need to come to grasps with, is we've made this too complicated. We have been over thinking things way too hard.

What keeps women happy in relationships? Believe it or not, it tends to be the little things that make women the most satisfied in relationships.

Dr. M. Gary Neuman, family counselor and author of Connect to Love, who, based on his research, gives some insights on what women want. Here are five very important elements:

  1. Time
  2. Appreciation
  3. Understanding
  4. More Fun
  5. Kind Gestures

I personally did some research of my own and talked to five different men that had been happily married for several years. Here's what they had to say:

  1. Give her a back massage once in a while
  2. Look at her when she's talking to you
  3. Just talk with her
  4. Give her a card that says, "I Love You"
  5. It's what not to do, DO NOT tell her how to drive!
