Yves's mission is to help women attract positive relationships by establishing personal parameters and greater self-worth.
This article is my tribute to all the devoted, decent, honorable and sexy men out there. Guys, you deserve major kudos for all of the wonderful, stirring and quirky ways in which you love women so incredibly well. We women love you and appreciate you. So, without further ado, here are some of our favorite reasons for loving men.....
#11 He Doesn't Pay Any Attention to the Directive, "My Eyes Are Up Here."
One weekend, my dear love came along to the hair salon with me. After I was cut and styled, I presented my beautiful haircut to him, angling my head just so. But his eyes were focused, well…down there, around the hip area, to be more specific. "Hey!" I said, "My haircut is up here, on my head." He grinned wickedly and said, “Yes my darling, but it all goes together so well.”
Frankly, that was the craziest thing I’d ever heard and I secretly loved it, though I put my hands on my hips in an unsuccessful show of disapproval. There was only one thing left to do... we both laughed and went in for the kiss. We may have put on a little show for the receptionists who were grinning like Cheshire cats.
Yes indeed, I am personally grateful for loving men who do not pay the slightest attention to useless, politically correct, unexciting directives from women. We ladies would be bored to tears if they did.
#10 Men Are More Romantic Than Women (Who Knew?)
Sociologists have studied romance: Their research has determined that men are more romantic than women, although women are more sensitive. Sociologists don’t know why this is so. For example, men are more apt to write beautiful poetry regarding their overwhelming feelings of love for a woman. Also, a man in love will rack his brain for a unique way to propose marriage, not to mention; men are the ones who buy flowers, chocolates, and tickets to pricey getaways.
If you listen to most love songs written by men, you cannot help but realize how sweetly idealistic they are, like when Jason Mraz sings, "I won't give up on love, even if the skies get rough....When I look into your eyes, it's like watching the night sky." Sigh. A man who sticks around through thick and thin and who thinks his lover resembles the night sky? Does it get any better than that?
Men also take longer to get over a break-up than do women. This is because men tend to isolate themselves and brood over a romance gone wrong, whereas women tend to seek solace from other women which helps females to bounce back more quickly. Also, the majority of newly single men admit to wanting their wives or girlfriends back. (It’s usually the woman who initiates the break-up.) Yep, when men get love-sick, they get it bad. When it comes to love, men are starry-eyed, impractical, romantic fools... and we women love them for that.
"When it comes to the heartache following a failed romance, men may actually suffer more than women."
— Journal of Health and Social Behavior

#9 His Favorite Halloween Costume: Dressing Up As a Woman
Men secretly love embracing their "inner femininity." It's true. Halloween is the one time of year when men can do just that, and no pant suits or skinny jeans will satisfy him. No way! He’s all about that frou-frou dress, the pretty wig, and the fake pearls. Sometimes he'll even go for the smoldering, sexy look. And naturally, his outfit isn’t complete without the high heels. You have to love it when he boasts about how much “prettier” he is than “that other guy.” "Well, OK," he insists, "Maybe I don't have his pouty lips, but just get a load of these legs, baby!" Your great big He-Man can hardly wait to practice his "womanly wiles" at the up-coming Halloween bash. I mean, really... isn't he the cutest thing?
#8 He Carries His 5-Month Old Like a Football
We’ve all seen him—the family guy with his wife, his 3-year-old, and the 5-month old all gathered around the table at the Cracker Barrel. The family is finished with breakfast and are now ready to pay the bill and head for the zoo. Family guy is in charge of the baby because mom is too busy rounding up the other kid and all the accouterments that accompany every child-friendly outing.
"No problem, I've got him," says family guy. Whereupon, he expertly hoists the baby out of the high chair and, in one fell swoop, tucks the kid securely under his arm, football style. And off they go! The baby, for whatever odd reason, generally looks perfectly comfortable. He doesn’t know he’s not a football, so what does he care? I don’t know about you, but when I see a man do this carrying-the-baby-like-a-football thing, I get this mushy feeling inside my chest and a big lump in my throat.

#7 He Defends His Mother To the Death
Nobody, but nobody can say anything remotely bad about his mama or there will be hell to pay. I don’t care if she was less than perfect. His mom is “sacred ground” and therefore “off limits.” Taking shots, even little shots, at his mom is hitting below the belt as far as he is concerned. His conviction is as such: “She took the time to put up with my constant shenanigans and I don’t know who else but my mom would have tolerated. ”Well," you gingerly offer, “Didn’t she hit you with the fly swatter kind of hard sometimes?” His answer: “Hell yes, she hit me; I deserved it. She loved me and that’s why she did it.”
By this time, we wives or girlfriends get the distinct feeling that we're treading on shaky ground by having said anything about "Mom." The hurt look in his eyes is letting us know that we might want to stop while we're ahead. And that's a good thing. Everyone knows.... if he defends his mother, he's going to defend you too. Hooray! Another wonderful reason to appreciate your loving man.
#6 He Gives You the "3-Legged Chicken" Look...Instead of Getting Angry
You know "The Look." It’s the face he makes when he’s too perplexed to speak; the Look also translates to "I've got your number, woman." He makes this face when we've just said something completely outrageous and inappropriate; It was probably a bald-faced lie, such as: “It was on sale and we can’t live without it,” Or “I think the neighbor is a CIA agent; he has beady eyes and that outfit he wears is too obvious.” This said as his wife peeks out the kitchen window, at our neighbor, who always wears Bermuda shorts and a Hawaiian top whenever he waters the grass.
It is then that you get "The Look," the one that suggests you have turned into a 3-legged chicken. No jury would believe you if a judge looked at you the way your husband is looking at you right now. You'd be found guilty as sin. Five years of community service, minimum. You might as well have said, “I can fly by flapping my arms."
In the Words of Atticus Finch
"I proved him a liar, but John (the judge) made him look like a fool. All the time Ewell was on the stand, I couldn't dare look at John and keep a straight face. John looked at him as if he were a three-legged chicken or a square egg. Don't tell me judges don't try to prejudice juries."
— To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee
But you love him for it. He doesn't yell or say something mean, even though you just said or did something that makes you seem like a lunatic or a liar. Instead, he peers at you quizzically, maybe over his glasses...as if to say, “Huh? On what planet does anything you just said make any sense WHATSOEVER?” But he doesn't call you mean names—or fume about the bill (too much).
Let's be real ladies. If he acted the way we just did, we'd make sure he'd hear about it for weeks to come. No way would we let him off the hook that easy. We'd give him "The Look" all week long. (The Look is not gender specific.) Not to mention we women have memories like elephants, which means we're going to file away any transgression for later use. But not him. He's going to forget about it. Our sweet man will sigh resignedly, shake his head and return to his newspaper. He loves you anyway. He really is the kindest man in the world.
"Mom, are you kidding me right now???"
#5 There Is Still A Boy Inside the Man
He wears silly hats and ridiculous make-up in support of his favorite sports team whenever he attends major league games. At home, he wears his jersey shirt and yells at the TV, along with his other Big Kid friends, like when the referee calls a foul. He fumes, “Is he blind?” He rants. He raves. He gets riled up just like he did when he was six. The other boy cheated. He'll be sorry.
And then there are the times when his young niece or nephew come to visit and your Big Kid is the first one out the door. It's time to play! Yippee. There they are—one big kid and two little ones', just a' rolling around in the grass, as if life can't get any better. Pure unadulterated fun, plain and simple. Now your guy has got hold of the garden hose. Anyone who comes within shooting distance is fair game. He, his niece and nephew are blissfully drenched, muddy, and happy. They're in heaven. Life doesn't get any better. Your good man knows how to take care of business, but when it comes to play, he's a still a boy inside of a man, and you wouldn't want him any other way.
#4 He Is the Famous Barbecue Master!
The fire grill is his domain. No one else is allowed to touch it. It’s his baby. His steaks have to be grilled just so, with tender loving care. You can’t just flip them any old way. The timing is crucial and his barbecue sauce is specially made... a touch of this, a spice of that. His grilled pork chops are his pride and joy. Sometimes he even wears his special apron when he grills. It reads, “Barbecue Master, King of the Grill.” It has to, of course, because he’s an awesome grill chef (if he doesn’t mind saying so himself).
He is a "Master of Fire." Oh, yeah! “Crank up the music and bring me a beer, little lady.” Little lady?? (This is where Barbecue Master has apparently channeled his inner John Wayne) He goes on to brag, “They don’t call me Mr. Barbecue for nothing.” We women smile appreciatively. What we're thinking is, "Woohoo! So far, I've got out of cooking three times this week... I’m shooting for seven."
It's an American Thing
"Globally, it seems that this gendered division of cookery (barbecuing) is an American phenomenon. Across cultures, women generally do most of the cooking, period. In some parts of the world—such as Southeast Asia, Malaysia, Serbia and Mexico—you will see female street vendors selling grilled food."
#3 He Is Not Offended By Chivalry
Like when he insists on doing that gentlemanly thing of walking nearest the traffic, on the sidewalk, when you’re together, or in taking your hand and leading the way around a crowd that might otherwise jostle you rudely. Or when he buys you a sweet little bouquet of flowers, just because. And remember the time he snuck out of work because you were sick with the flu, and he stopped by the grocery store to pick up chicken noodle soup, orange juice, tissues and Nyquil, even though he had to rush like mad to get back to work on time to meet his client? You weren’t even married yet---just dating---but he called you every 2 hours to make sure you were doing okay.
And when he finally proposed several months down the road, he got down on one knee and made the sappiest, sweetest speech ever.....and the look on his face told you everything you needed to know.
A good man is not offended by a little chivalry. Nope. He simply requires some encouragement now and again. After all, he's smart enough to know that his thoughtful gestures translate into your appreciation and affection. (Hey, he's no dummy.) But more importantly, he is a gentleman because he loves you, not because he has an agenda... and that's why you're head over heels in love with him.
"88% of Americans cited love as a “very important” reason to get married, ahead of making a lifelong commitment (81%) and companionship (76%)."
— Pew Research Center
#2 The Way He Holds You When You're Sad
You simply adore him when he pulls your body closer and cradles the back of your head, as his fingers stroke your hair ever so gently. And he murmurs, "I'm so sorry you have to go through this.” You lean your head securely upon his chest while you cry softly and listen to the beating of his heart...sure, steady beats. You feel reassurred, knowing you will get through this sad, sad time. He kisses the top of your head. His arms encircle you more tightly. "I'm here," he whispers. He gently lifts your chin with the tips of his fingers. His eyes search your face with infinite compassion as he wipes the tears from your eyes. Patiently, he cradles your body. He comforts you. You know he isn't going anywhere...and you love him more than ever.
#1 He Is Forgiving
You said something horrible, something totally uncalled for. The hurt look in his eyes is killing you and you know that if he walked out the door right now, you wouldn't blame him. You went too far this time. If he had said the same thing to you, you’d probably pack your bags and never look back. But not him. He has no intention of leaving. Through bad times and good times, even if you've wounded him deeply. He is with you for the long haul. There is no doubt in your mind that you don't deserve him after what you just said and you feel even worse for the knowing.
When you act like this, sometimes he wishes he didn't love you as much as he does. But the truth is, he really can’t imagine life without you. To your credit, you are so very sorry and horribly ashamed. Finally you approach him. “Honey, please forgive me. I was wrong. I despise myself for hurting you. I don't know why I said those awful things." He pauses, looks away and downward for a moment, the longest minute of your life. Then he looks at you...so very sadly, and he reaches for you as he whispers, "It's okay. I love you.”
He is the finest of men, a forgiving and loving person who is worth your admiration, love, and respect, forever.

Questions & Answers
Question: How do you know that you love the guy?
Answer: Because you have his best interests at heart.... because somehow, he makes you a better person.... because it is pretty much impossible to imagine your life without him.
Whatever you decide to do, if he does not make you a better person, and if you do not have his best interests at heart, and if you CAN imagine your life without him, then you are not in love.

Larry W Fish from Raleigh on March 17, 2018:

Yves (author) on February 26, 2018:
Your marriage of 30 years makes it easy for me to believe you can relate to this hub. Thank you for being a good husband. I appreciate that more than you will ever know.
So nice of you to stop by!

Yves (author) on March 20, 2017:
But that's a good one. Any man who can comfort a woman has my vote----and believe me, most men do not have all 11 traits and that's okay too! Thank you for visiting, Chris. :)
Chris Mills from Traverse City, MI on March 20, 2017:
I didn't recognize any of these guys until I got to number two. Tough one for me. But I did it. Thanks for sharing these thoughts. Funny at times, touching at others.
Yves (author) on January 18, 2017:
Thanks Nell. My favorite part is the pic of the little guy giving his mom, "The Look."

Came back for another laugh! shared across!
Yves (author) on December 12, 2016:
Ha! I might have to include an addendum: Wives, Please tell your husband how much you appreciate him!
Well Springboard, if you have 10 out of the 11 traits, you still get an A+, only because the Haloween thing is optional. Lol. Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from the great guys I wrote this article for. ;)
Springboard from Wisconsin on December 12, 2016:
Who knew my wife thinks of me this way? Wait. She does, right? Is this universal? lol. BTW, I DO NOT ever like to wear women's clothes just for the record, Not even on Halloween, That's just spooky. :)
Yves (author) on August 25, 2016:
You flatter me Laurinzo. Thank you for such a stunning compliment. I have tried responding to you multiple times, but the Post Comment button is not allowing things to go through---so here I am again trying again. Anyhoo....this article is actually my favorite. It is important to me that good men know just how valued they are!
LJ Scott from Phoenix, Az. on August 24, 2016:

Defending mother can never be a bad idea!(:
Al Wordlaw from Chicago on May 24, 2015:
Hi savvy, you are fascinating yourself. It takes a very classy lady to know "10 Reasons Why Women Love Men." I can appreciate those good reasons. They are very tasteful and of course, there are more surprising reasons why. Also, I think you'll love my hub "How To Make Her Feel Your Proposal." I try to give the guys good tips too. God bless!
Yves (author) on May 17, 2015:
Thank you. There are wonderful men out there, and I adore them. I am glad you found the post refreshing. I did too! ;)
Disillusioned from Kerala, India on May 17, 2015:
Very refreshing to read!
Yves (author) on May 16, 2015:
Oh, thanks!! I just love that sweet guy. I lucked out having him as my son. Please forgive me for bragging, but he spoiled me terribly on Mother's Day. I loved it.
FlourishAnyway from USA on May 16, 2015:
I'm back to say that your photo of you and your son is awesome! This is a great hub, Savvy! Sharing!
Yves (author) on February 03, 2015:

ezzly on December 27, 2014:
You will love it :)
Yves (author) on December 27, 2014:
Green hair?? Ha,ha,ha! Some priest he turned out to be, ezzly. I'll check out father ted. Sounds like loads of fun. :)
ezzly on December 26, 2014:
Thank you Savvy many happy returns I forgot to add the skirt was leather and he spray painted his hair green I wish I still had pictures too. You should check out a funny show called father ted on you tube, a comedy about irish priests!
Yves (author) on December 23, 2014:
Lol! Your brother's costume is one of the most creative one's I've heard of yet, ezzly. I would have loved to have seen it---and yes, I can believe it!! I think men like showing off their legs. I really rather endearing, which is why I had to include it in the list. Thank you for sharing the story and I wish you a very, Merry Christmas with lots of laughs and good cheer.
ezzly on December 23, 2014:
Ha ha I love this, particularly dressing up as a woman , why is this so popular with them ? My brother dressed up as a priest in a mini skirt one year can you believe it ? ,
Yves (author) on September 13, 2014:
Say Yes To Life, I hadn't seen your list until today (Sat). Good addition there!
Yves (author) on September 12, 2014:
Your heart is in snowboarding. Men or no men, maybe you should find a way to live where you can do that thing that makes your heart sing. You are in great shape. Maybe you should go for it.
Yoleen Lucas from Big Island of Hawaii on September 12, 2014:
I finally got to go to High Cascade Snowboard Camp for the first time in 4 years. It was a GREAT reminder of why I love men, with their playfulness and sense of adventure. I wish I could live there!
Yves (author) on September 12, 2014:
Hi Relationshipc....You've got a keeper!. I adore a man who can keep his calm and forgive. They're the best, ever. Thank you for stopping by. It's always a pleasure.
Kari on September 12, 2014:
#6 - Gotta admit that is true. If my husband reacted the way I did, I would feel hurt and upset. He's quite a man to be kind even in the face of my (sometimes) craziness. And of course, I love how forgiving he is too. I have never been as quick to forgive as he has.
Yves (author) on August 18, 2014:
Thanks a bunch, Rose. I'm glad you'll have some more time to spend on hubpages. Couples really need your expertise. I appreciate the compliment regarding me and my son, by the way. He's the sweetest thing. I just began working full-time myself, so I won't have as much time to spend on Hubpages either...but I'll be around. Thanks again for dropping by for a visit.
rose-the planner from Toronto, Ontario-Canada on August 18, 2014:
This was such an awesome article and I agree with pretty much all of your 10 reasons why women love men. This was a real pleasure to read. I love the picture of you and your son, it's beautiful! Take care and thank you for sharing. -Rose
Yoleen Lucas from Big Island of Hawaii on August 17, 2014:
1) Get a group of skiers / snowboarders / skateboarders together, and you experience the greatest vibe. Most people who engage in this activity are men.
2) Men are more adventurous. They come up with the greatest ideas, and when things go wrong, they know how to fix it and make it interesting.
3) Any effort you put towards looking attractive, they appreciate. They are far less critical than women.
4) Most men are good. Even the ones who appear shady can have positive qualities. Women often underestimate men's good qualities, assuming they lack self-control and have low morals.
5) Men help you push your limits. When you're afraid, instead of coddling you and adding to your fear, they help you face it.
6) Men love physical exercise. They go to the gym not to lose weight, but for the sheer joy of it. They truly appreciate when you pay them a physical compliment.
7) Men are less judgmental. If the woman simply enjoys life instead of constantly whining about her weight, her age, her looks, etc., he doesn't even notice. A boy 1/3 my age asked me for a date once!
8) If you accept men for who they are, truly caring about them and their interests, they'll accept you for who you are and are less likely to play games with you. It is an unfortunate fact that women often don't truly appreciate men; they use them, and then wonder why men use them in return.
Wow, that's 8. Here are the next two:
Need I say more????
Yves (author) on August 15, 2014:
How delightful to see you, quildon. I'm so glad you agree. The romantic things men do deserve to be recognized, so I'm glad I finally thought to write this hub article. :) Thank you for stopping by!
Angela Joseph from Florida on August 15, 2014:
You confirmed what I already knew - men are more romantic than women. I just never thought of all the ways. Great hub.
Yves (author) on August 14, 2014:
Hi Nell... I remember reading To Kill A Mockingbird a hundred years ago...and I never forgot the judge giving the juror the 3-legged chicken look. So I thought I'd include it, but with a twist. I'm thrilled that you found the hub funny. I hoped to get some chuckles! As always, thank you for stopping by, Nell!
Nell Rose from England on August 14, 2014:
Yeah! what an amazing truthful funny hub! lol! I love the "3-Legged Chicken" Look!! LOL! Oh yes I know it so well! funny stuff, and I loved it, brilliant!
Yves (author) on August 12, 2014:
So right, breakfastpop. If we choose wisely, we get to enjoy all these fun reasons to love. Thank you for the votes. I'm happy that you liked all the reasons---they all speak to me, for sure.
breakfastpop on August 12, 2014:
I loved all the reasons! I say choose wisely and be happy! Voted up and awesome and useful int the right hands.
Yves (author) on August 12, 2014:
Ms. Dora, you're the sweetest woman. I appreciate your lovely comment and I thank you for the vote up. I'm glad this article made you smile. :)
Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on August 12, 2014:
These are all very delightful reasons. Thanks for the smiles and good feelings that come with remembering the experiences you describe. Also good information from the News. A very pleasant read! Voted Up.
Yves (author) on August 11, 2014:
Thanks Brie. I agree. Men need our support now and then.
Brie Hoffman from Manhattan on August 11, 2014:
Very nice article. It's nice to see men upheld for a change.
Yves (author) on August 11, 2014:
Hi DDE. As long as the man takes care of business and is serious when he needs to be, I don't mind him acting like a boy. He's just having fun. Fun is good! Thank you for commenting!
Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on August 11, 2014:
You chose well and I am surprised by these reasons and have noticed a few myself. Sure, a man would always have that boy in him and does not want a woman to see that part of him. Unfortunately he can't hide it.
Yves (author) on August 11, 2014:
Hi fpherj48...I love that your sons are your defenders. That's so sweet, isn't it? I get what you're saying, though... You're like, "Alright already."
I only have one son to defend me, so he's got to do most of the work. At least maybe your sons can take turns if anyone gets tired. Lol.
But seriously, thank you for all of your kind words. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that good men exist and I simply wanted to thank them and...to reassure single women that there's still hope. Also, thanks for the votes & tweets, not to mention the nice compliment about me and my son. :) I really hope your sons like the article!
Suzie from Carson City on August 11, 2014:
savvy......How I LOVE this hub.....you are such an excellent writer. As a mother of 4 sons, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a warm and positive dissertation on the male of our species. It's refreshing, to say the least.
I have voted this Up & out of sight......shared, pinned, tweeted, googled and sent to my sons who will LOVE you! LOL.
The pic of you (beautiful Mom) and your handsome son is precious. I'm blessed with 4 defenders and protectors......and a-HEM....sometimes I'd like them to lighten up a bit. I'm a little old to be babysat!!
Yves (author) on August 11, 2014:
Thanks FlourishAnyway! I have to say, I always enjoy your comments. By the way, congratulations on the new Toyota! How adorable that your husband turned it right over to you. What a living doll! Yes, you've got a good one...that's for sure. I love that you can relate to the football story. Seeing men carrying their babies that always makes me smile. Thanks for pinning & sharing. So very sweet of you. Yay!
FlourishAnyway from USA on August 11, 2014:
This was a terrific hub, Savvy. I especially liked the football hold (I remember the days when my husband did that with my daughter) and empathy. I am real high on my husband these days. He won a freaking CAR yesterday (2014 Toyota Camry) and gave it to me! Feeling lucky to have that man, yessirree. Voted this great hub up+++, pinning and sharing.
Yves (author) on August 11, 2014:
Right? Wasn't the baby the cutest? I'm glad you found the article savvy, Frank. I thought it was time to point out some great things about men, instead of taking them to task. Lol.
Frank Atanacio from Shelton on August 11, 2014:
savvy a very savvy look into the reasons why women love men..LOL I love the baby photo.. funny little guy :)
