Posted by editor On June - 18 - 2009

gillette presented this YouTube video on how to keep private area cleaner for guys:

I found it rather informative that they do their commercial with this kind of tips.
and what do other women think about whether guys should shave or not?

Female 1:
hairless is better. it feels better and looks better. my boyfriend use to shave, then he got lazy and quit. at first it hurt me when it started growing back…. like a bush burn.. yuck not fun.
so now im stuck with this fur ball…. or balls, lol.
Female 2:
yes, i love it when they shave cuz it’s cleaner that way and it feels good that way
Female 3:
I think it’s great when guys shave, it makes many things more enjoyable.

So what do you think?

Fireproof on DVD!

Posted by Smurfette On March - 27 - 2009

Do you remember Mike Seaver in “Growing Pains”, played by Kirk Cameron? I used to love watching that sitcom in the 80’s and Kirk used to be one of my idols!

Kirk’s most recent movie is “Fireproof” and I recently watched it on DVD with a couple of friends. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the movie turned out to be quite good. It has drama, action, and even a bit of comedy. For those of you who are married, this is a must see movie!

Women’s “Not So Secret” Dictionary

Posted by Smurfette On March - 17 - 2009

This post is actually more for the men. If you are having trouble understanding your lady. This dictionary might help you. 🙂  I had a good laugh reading this.

Nine Words Women Use

1. Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2. Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the football before helping around the house.

3. Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don’t Do It!

4. A Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer quickly to No 9 for the meaning of nothing.)

5. That’s Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

6. Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want to add a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’, which is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say ‘you’re welcome’ – that will bring on No. 7).

7. Whatever: Is a woman’s way of saying, “F– YOU!”

8. Don’t worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking ‘What’s wrong?’ For the woman’s response refer to No. 9.

9. Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in “Fine”.

Send this link to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

Send this link to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, because we know it’s true!

Someone blog about this in here, it reminds me of that movie called Monalisa Smile (2003) with Julia Robert, Kirsten Dunst and Julia Stiles in it.

I feel very lucky not to live in the 1950’s =) so I guess no one will be expecting me to function under those principals below for a wife, but it would be nice if one could, which I think would be pretty hard for current standard life-style having the fact that woman has to work also aside of house-wifing (for the lack of better term I like to call it that).

Want a healthy relationship? don’t see each other as a servant, just ought to help each other in order to establish a healthy and balance relationship. Women and Men both are created to be one in marriage as a harmonious companion – not like so men can be masters and women their forever servants/helper with a degree below them. eekk, I don’t want a man like that!

the-good-wifes-guide

well incase the picture above has a very small print I’ve re-write all the points here:

  1. Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and they prospect of a good meal (especially his favorite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.
  2. Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you’ll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people.
  3. Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.
  4. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives.
  5. Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper etc and then run a dust cloth over the tables.
  6. Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order and it will five you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
  7. Prepare the children. Take a few minutes to wash the children’s hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair and if necessary, change their clothes, They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part. Minimize all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet.
  8. Be happy to see him.
  9. Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
  10. Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first – remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours.
  11. Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.
  12. Your goal: Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order and tranquility where you husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
  13. Don’t greet him with complaints and problems.
  14. Don’t complain if he’s late home for dinner or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that day.
  15. Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
  16. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.
  17. Don’t ask him question about his actions or question his judgment or integrity. Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.
  18. A good wife always knows her place.

Well if a frog can lend a hand to a mouse which is a completely different species than it is, then we all can do much better for each other, right? well I hope so =)

How to calm an “angry” wife?

Posted by editor On May - 22 - 2008

Calm angry wife

Women in general tend to be more emotional and reactive than men. Especially in a household, husband and wife can get entangled over issues of little or non-critical importance. Not only this is detrimental to the marriage and unnecessary stress, it can also leave you bitter with one another.

So the question is: “How could you calm an ‘angry’ wife?”

Apparently this is quite a common issue in husband and wife relationship, and here are some tips and suggestions to calm an “angry” wife:

Here goes the list:

  • wash the dishes
  • flowers
  • be kind and sweet to her. Apologize for any wrong doings.
  • just agree with her, even if you don’t, be calm yourself. Two angry people only is going to end up in a big mess. Once the situation is calmed down then approach her carefully and let her know how you really felt. Good Luck to you and God Bless
  • If she said ” leave me alone” LEAVE HER ALONE. Do not force her to talk by asking the same questions over and over. She may just answer. And you won’t like the answer. Give her space and let her be angry. It is ok and healthy to be mad. She will calm down when she is done being angry. ( It has taken me a couple of days to get over being mad at my husband) be patient.
  • When a woman is angry: run. Run like the wind. I am not kidding.
