Men can be crazy: From what they like about their woman to what they do with their friends. These are typical of most dating men raised in the hustles of Kenya. However, women are crazier- truth be told. Research has shown that women in some way love weird things.

One morning your girlfriend wakes up craving for “Mutura”, or some stone to crunch! I mean, by all means, how is that even logic? They are so spontaneous that you can barely imagine a quarter of what they may crave next: lotion? Or candle wax? You never know.

Most men would imagine that women love big things about them. Well, I come with the gospel about  the silent, unexpected things that women like about their men. These are safely tucked in their hearts or whatever it they keep secrets, because they find them sexy in a way.

But wait, these are the things that may have unexpectedly attracted your woman to you or better, are the only things keeping her around you! God bless weird.

The girlish, feminine side

Sissy, or so they call it. Leave alone the gay type, that’s another story for the future. But sometimes men behave in a way that leaves one wondering: hardcore girlish nature of some actions. The sissiness (sounds wrong) is is mind boggling. Yet such things could probably be attracting your woman to you. The massage, doing nail polish for her...Sometimes, dropping the tough guy thing that you have, and being tender with her. Crazily unbelievable..

Men’s smell

Of all the things, probably the weirdest. Talk of all expensive perfumes and colognes. Yeah, they work for most women. But, your own body odor is the real deal bro. Your woman could be in love with your scent and you don’t even know about it. According to research, this body odor is a thing among women. American researchers tell us that a man’s natural scent can turn a woman on mara pap! I rest this case.

Telling your secrets

Opening up? Sorry, not so much for us men. We have a problem with secrets. Men keep things from their women, instead they choose to drink over it or better, tell it to his kitchen cabinet. Here some news, which you can toss around if you want: When you tell your woman about your secrets, the confidence she has on you is likely to grow. She will see the bravery that comes with it, the research says and perhaps the sexiness.

Your manners as a man

Which one are you? There is the bad boy syndrome which by the way , I fail to understand. We can argue about it for ages. Are you a disciplined chap or are you all over the place leaving careless marks? Women will note how you respond to a waiter in a restaurant, how you talk to that ‘donda’ in a matatu. Whether you have any flirty tendencies with her friends. They may not tell you this, but playing it cool, when you should, definitely keeps her around. Being decent is something women are attracted to. Roughness has a place to some women, but not as much as decency.
