Giving your man a make-over
No matter how well-packaged our dolls come to us, Mr. Wonderful is guaranteed to have at least one bad habit, flaw or idiosyncrasy. But suggestions about him behaving badly translate to being b**ched at. And you know what happens to a man who feels nagged – he turns off his henpecked ears. So how can you give your man the minor makeover he needs?
If he is fashion challenged, forget about his favorite cotton T-shirt, or that you’ll always have to go shopping with him. What you can change is his bas hair or too much aftershave. All you got to do is say something like “I am really turned on by guys with long hair and goatees.᾿ If he still wants to impress you, trust me, he will grow that goatee so as to turn into your dream guy.
If your man’s sin is ogling women, then you can never change the fact that he finds other women attractive. But what you can change is his staring at women and commenting about their body parts. The remedy to a pop-eyed dude is simple: Ogle other men in front of him and see how he deals. What an ogler needs is a good dose of his own medicine … over-medicate him!

What are you looking for?
Then we have the porn addicts. What you can’t change is the fact that looking at porn turns him on. But you could change the fact that he keeps it stashed somewhere in the house. Let him know that it’s not the fact that he gets off on porn that bothers you but the fact that porn is in the house (women just don’t want to be confronted with it.) Better still, tell him his porn habit kills your libido.
Some dudes just have horrible manners in general. Trying to change the fact that he was never taught proper etiquette and that you will have to play coach will be kidding your self. But there is still hope. You can change his belching in public, not introducing you properly to friends or his terrible table manners.
To build a mild mannered man, baby steps are the key – “Will you hold my coat while I slip it on?᾿ Then move to simple seduction: “You are so sexy when you escort me through the door.᾿ Never put him down in front of other people and when possible, use humor to clue him in.
You can also make him a deal. When Charles’ girlfriend realized that her nagging about his manners started blowing up into full-blown fights, she bribed him – “I will start wearing those sexy slit skirts – the ones you can make out my thong panty line – if you promise to be on your best behavior when we go out.᾿ What can I say… bribes work for me … worked on Charles too.
If he is a slob, then you can’t change the fact that tidiness is not his priority and that you will have to police him – always. Women are usually happy when the house looks like a maid just blew through. Shedding bits and pieces of your clothes in the whole house definitely won’t jazz her. Try placing a basket strategically by the closet or bathroom to catch those dirty clothes or whatever.
If he is still tossing things down and you feel that house work is never going to be divided evenly, hire so help and see how quickly the bickering will go.
Let’s hope he is the kind of guy that picks up on hints.
