Boys require a minimum consumption of beer to function.

#letsbefrank, us guys are a different species. I’ll always treat you like the babe you are, but now that you’ve met another guy to spoil you, I have to share.

I’m sure he wined and dined you until you said yes. But now it’s time for you to impress. I can help with that.

Shopping, espresso martinis, puppies and maybe a tropical island… These are just some of the things I know you babes enjoy.  But us guys? Well, let’s just say that kissing in the rain, in a boat, on a lake, may not always be our cup of tea (or coffee).

As you know, I love to make your life that little bit easier. So here is an insight or 6 for you about what men want. Don’t worry, I won’t tell him I told you.

1. Harden up.

Take a trip to your local hardware store to please his masculine side with all kinds of tools. #letsbefrank, neither you nor I would know the difference between a shovel and a spade. However, can I suggest the garden section, as we both know we’re into all things natural.

2. Get wild.

Leave the comfort zone (and shower) at home and go camping. But let him drive. And set up the tent. Perhaps offer to make dinner while he does all things manly and rugged. At the end of the day, you get to kiss him under the stars. And he gets to scrub you in an outdoor shower/lake/puddle. #letsbefrank

3. Ditch the diet.

I love making you glow, but I can only do that from the outside. What happens on the inside is all you, babe. Eating healthy is great, but ditch it once in a while for a manly meal. Head to a burger bar or a steak house, tie your hair back and dig in. He’ll probably pass out soon after from excessive (delicious) greasy food consumption, in which case, you will have ample time to watch The Notebook.

4. Have a brew of a different kind.

I’m no scientist, but I do know that boys require a minimum consumption of beer to function (except me, I only need you). I’ll let you in on a secret: breweries usually have pretty views, serve yummy food and there will probably (definitely) be someone there who can make you an espresso martini.

5. Take a ride.

Simple things entertain us. Like cars, for example. It’s a pretty safe bet that we’ll be happy with things that go, and go fast. Appeal to our inner Bond and book a ride in an Aston Martin or maybe even just a ute. Please our boy-ish side and look the part as a Bond girl* (*babe).

6. Get dirty.

It’s no secret that #couplesthatscrubtogetherstaytogether. There’s room for all of us in the shower, and I’d love to start a bro-mance. Not that you need an excuse to get naked, get rough, get dirty and get clean. But, I promise that once you do, it’ll be all smooth sailing with your lucky guy. Pardon the pun.

And that’s it… for now. I know I can’t always be your number one guy, and you might need another to treat you every now and then. So treat him back and afterwards, meet me in the shower (with or without him).

xx frank
