…Points. How to Score Points With Your Partner. You dirty-minded person. What did you think I meant?
Men. Mars. Women. Venus. You really should know the drill by now.
Men, every time you do something nice for your significant other, you get a point. One point.
- Giving Her Flowers = 1 point
- Giving Her a Car = 1 point
- Taking Out the Trash = 1 point
Little things are important to women, so don’t stop doing them…no matter how long you’ve been together.
This chapter includes a list of 101 Ways to Score…Points With Women. Here are a few of my favorites:
Hug her as soon as you walk in the door.
Give her flowers for no reason.
Hug her 4 times a day…at least. (I know by now you think I’m hug obsessed and that I added this in. I swear I didn’t. Tony—and anyone else reading the book—please back me up here.
Pay more attention to her than others when you’re in public.
Take short romantic getaways.
Women, don’t forget to say, “Thank you” and “Ooooh” and “Ahhhh.” Men need encouragement and appreciation for them to continue giving. Also, men tend to wait to do things until they are asked. But ask and you shall receive.
Here are a few ways to score points with men.
- If he forgets something, say, “It’s okay.”
- When he drives, say, “Thank you for driving.” That’s just good manners. Refrain from telling him how to drive, where to park, etc.
- You can also score points with your man, by…you know…”scoring” with your man.
Ladies, I think we definitely have it easier.
The author also revealed something that I found really, really interesting.
Men are afraid of not being forgiven, and that’s why when they screw up, they tend to get mad at you in return.
Women: Say “Thank you.” Be grateful for the little things.
Men: Just because buying a car and buying flowers are each worth one point, don’t think you get away with just doing the little stuff. Ok, well maybe you can. If it’s lots of little stuff.
