We have a few other books on our list to help new relationships, floundering marriages and build better communication for couples.
Veteran comic Steve Harvey dispenses more fodder than real world expertise on dating, marriage and communication for guys and gals. He list 5 questions every woman should ask a man that seem to me more like pickup lines for the world’s greatest liar.
He offer some sound advice by establishing these take away's from the book.
1. Dating is like negotiation, be prepared to walk away in fairly short order if you don't get your needs met.
2. Guys aren't interested in marriage so you have to state it's importance to you and your timeline.
3. Men can't be a strong partner until they are making money and have their own career identity straightened out.
4. Men need and carve sex (no surprise here). If you are serious about a relationship wait 3 months before having sex to make sure he isn't "just kicking it".
5. Look good and carry yourself well if you want a real relationship. Girls in short skirts get the wrong kind of guy.

If any one of these good books on relationships for men could benefit someone you know who is to cheap to buy it or seldom reads books here is an idea for you. Purchase the book and leave it lying around where your man, partner or significant other will be tempted to read it. Most books struggle to capture the true essence of male and female relationships. They often defy the sound reasoning used in normal human interactions when encumbered with an amorous relationship, cohabitation or marriage.
The nature of our relationships are too complex to clearly put them into words that everyone can understand. We could always use the old school method of allowing parents to pick our spouses since they can usually view them without the rose colored glasses that can impair the sight of young lovers.
