10 Things You Need to Know about Men

  • We want you to be our mothers. Men stay little boys all through our lives. We want to be hugged and cooked for, and we honestly don't mind when you remind us about stuff like dentist appointments -- it makes us feel taken care of. But there's a fine line between nurturing and nagging. No guy wants his woman following him around the house yelling, "Pick up your socks!"
  • We don't mind it when you dress us. When it comes to clothes, most men are clueless. We'd actually rather you tell us what to wear. Of course, if it's Sunday and we're sprawled out on the couch in sweats, we don't want to hear what you think of it. But if we're going out, we love the idea that you want to show us off. I always check with my wife [actress Heather Locklear] before I leave the house.
  • We're terrified you'll break our hearts. All men are afraid of getting too close, too fast. So, if we seem standoffish, it's not because we don't like you. It's because we don't want to get hurt. We're afraid of getting our hearts broken -- just like you.
