WOMEN are natural nurturers, and when it comes to caring for their man, they usually assume this role with ease.
They will cook for him, do his laundry, iron his clothes, clean the house and ensure he is as comfortable as he can be.
When you ask why all the fuss, some may say they were taught to do this, while others will indicate that it's a sure-fire way to keep their man glued to them.
Relationship counsellor Wayne Powell concurred that one sure way to keep a man is to feed him, and explained that it goes back to the saying that a way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
However, Powell said that while looking after a man's domestic needs and preparing his food are great attributes, other things count if you expect to keep him and maintain his interest.
Below he tells All Woman six other means a woman can employ to hold her man.
1. Respect and ‘big him up’
"Let him know and feel that he is highly regarded by you. Avoid the temptation to belittle him, especially when his opinions are far different from yours," he said.
2. Support him
Powell said though he may have aspirations that seem unachievable, encourage him and praise his efforts.
3. Share interests
The relationship counsellor said women should join their men on some of their interests and make it a fun activity.
4. Me time
Powell said it is important that women allow their men time and space to go flex with the boys or chill out in their man caves.
5.Try your best to make him sexually satisfied
"Be interested, innovative and inviting in the bedroom; remember, men are visual beings," Powell said.
6. Be honest and dependable
Powell said to let your words match up with your actions and remember that your word is your bond.
