10 Ways That a Man Can and Should Treat a Woman Properly

Ara is a journalism graduate from California State University, Northridge, who is always looking to explore his writing opportunities.

Introduction to the Female Gender

A woman is a human being just like a man is. And therefore, we have to treat them well. Women are responsible for giving birth to children and this is why the men are here on Earth. And since a woman is a human being, she deserves to be treated with respect, admiration and kindness. There are women in this world that are mean and nasty as well. Mean and nasty people exist in both men and women.

However, that does not give a man the right to abuse the woman and to treat her like she is an object. There are many ways that a man can treat a woman well without being too nice. Being nice is a great thing. The focus of this article is not going to be how to get a woman to go out on a date and start a committed relationship with you. But this article will focus on the many ways you can treat a woman well and treat her in the way that she deserves to be treated. So here are ten ways that a man can treat a woman properly:

These First Two Reasons Are Very Important to Remember

1. First of all, a woman is a human being just like you are

Just remember that a woman has her flaws just like you do. A woman is not perfect and that imperfection is all a part of being human. This first reason should be obvious.

2. Do not treat her as an object

Too many men once they meet a woman will focus on what they can do to get her to get into bed with them. Such advances show no class and that shows that you are not treating a woman as a human being but that in this instance, you are treating her as an object to be taken advantage of. There are too many movies these days that have sex scenes in them and sex is big part of many people’s lives. But if your only goal in life is to have sex with a woman, that is an unhealthy obsession with the human body and this is not healthy in the long term. An obsession with sex will end up causing you major health problems in the future and it may even lead to death. So do not take these risks and gamble with your life. Are you still not convinced of the dangers of unprotected sex? This next part is intended to be humorous as well as good advice. For those of you that are heavy metal fans, listen to the song Sexecution by the band Annihilator. Also, as an important side note, it is estimated that 1 out of every 4 teenage girls in the United States have at least one sexually transmitted disease!

Strategies 3-5 Are To Show Politeness, Class, & a Sense of Humor

3. Be polite

Women love men that are polite towards them and that’s one of the best ways that you can really make a good impression on her. Say thank you if you are thankful for something that she does for you. Be a good listener and do not under any circumstances interrupt her when she is speaking! There are few things more annoying to a woman than a man who constantly jumps in when a woman is speaking trying to tell them something. Do not interrupt her because that will show that you are rude.

4. Do not tell her dirty jokes or use dirty humor in your conversations with her

In our enthusiasm to communicate with others and have a good time, some of us will go over the top and use dirty humor to get our point across. But in the company of a woman, this behavior is unacceptable. Using foul language or dirty humor in front of a woman is a major turn off.

5. Have a sense of humor

A woman loves a man that has a sense of humor. Make her laugh by telling her funny stories and funny things that happened to you. You will be a much more pleasant person to be around if you can make a woman laugh.

Strategies 6-9

6. Smile at her and let her know that you enjoy her presence and company

A smile lets a woman know that you appreciate what she is saying and that you are interested in the conversation. A smile also shows that you are a person that enjoys being in the company of other people. Make sure that your smile is genuine and that you really mean to do it.

7. Offer to help her wear her coat or jacket if she is cold

If she is cold, offer to help her wear her jacket or coat. Doing so will show a woman that you care about her.

8. Ask her how she is doing if you sense that she is uncomfortable

If you sense or feel that the woman you are around is uncomfortable, then check on her and make sure that she is okay. Asking a woman if everything is okay with her or how her day is going will show that you really care about her well-being.

9. Do not try to ask her out on a date just after you have met her

Relationships take time to develop and because of that, it is not a good idea to ask a woman out on a date if you have just met her. Take the time to get to know her a bit. Only you know when the right time is to ask her out. But by asking her out on a date just after you have met her, this shows that you are rushing into things and pushing the relationship. If you try to rush into things, they usually do not work out well. Too many people rush into partnerships and they end up getting very badly hurt later on.

The Final Reason to Treat a Woman The Right Way

10. Give her a hug if she feels comfortable with that

When you are about to say good bye to a woman before departing, depending upon your relationship with her, you can give her a hug if she feels comfortable with that. But do not try to hug her if she refuses to be hugged. And make sure to not touch any part of her body that you shouldn’t touch. You can hold her close to you if you know her well enough. If you are not going to be seeing her for a while because you are going on vacation, you can consider making the hug a longer one. I love those long hugs because they make you feel so great!

This simple ten step process will help you to remember how to treat a woman the right way. Remember that she is just a human being and that she will not always meet your expectations all the time.

Thank you for your comment. You made some great points here about women wanting to be with the "bad boys." However, as I said in the beginning the article was not written for those asking relationship advice. It was just a general article about how to treat a woman. I agree that guys shouldn't be a doormat and let the woman walk all over them. Sadly, it seems like the nice guys get nowhere. I have something called Asperger's Syndrome which makes it challenging for me in terms of asking people out on dates. Once again, thank you for your intelligent comment and I'm glad you enjoyed reading this.

It's also important to realize that when it comes to women there is no "one size that fits all". There will always be women who actually prefer to be with "bad boys".

You can stick such a woman in a room with 5 guys and have four them drop to their knees extending her their heart while the fifth guy sits in a corner sipping on a cocktail acting as if she does not exist.

That will be the guy she wants to get to know!

She sees him as a "mystery", "challenge", someone who will make her (earn) his attention and affection. If she learns other women are clamoring to be with him that will simply bring out her competitive spirit.

Historically "nice guys" have been both baffled and frustrated with such women who routinely place them in the "friend zone" for being "too nice" while providing a shoulder for these women to cry on as they complain about some "jerk" they're madly in love with.

Oftentimes it's not until after these women have had a series of heartaches and disappointments with the "bad boys" that they consider giving a "nice guy" a chance. Thus the old adage: "Nice guys finish last."

The real problem is too often "nice guys" want to be with hot looking "bad girls" whose motto is:

"We adore those who ignore us and ignore those who adore us."

Ultimately the goal of every man and woman is to find someone who will love and appreciate them for who (they) are.

Be yourself!

If that doesn't work it probably means they're not "the one" for you!
