Why Women Love Strong Men
January 5, 2016
Hosted by Virginia L. Colin, Ph.D.
Today’s men have received so many confusing messages about what a man should be, they are often bewildered. Women are frustrated with today`s men who won`t make decisions and are oblivious to problems that need their attention. Many men feel that women have lost respect for them. What can men do to regain love and respect? What can women do to change the situation? Elliott Katz, author of “Being the Strong Man a Woman Wants: Timeless Wisdom on Being a Man,” shares insights on being a man that have withstood the test of time. Interestingly, the traits he learned about from fathers and other older male role models match the traits that he heard many women complain were lacking in men today – showing leadership, making decisions, and taking responsibility.
