To be one step ahead of men and their ways. Knowing what they want and need and giving it to them of our own terms.
Thinking like a man is thinking about Sex all the damn time and choosing our partners by body parts and physical attraction
I really have no idea, when I see the movie I will get back to you.
Clearly explains why I am SINGLE!!!! lol
I havent seen the movie yet but thinking like a man to ME means NOT being myself....thinking f*cked up and altering my heart and mind so I wont get hurt. Do you observe how easier it is for a man to go on from you after a breakup, than it is for you. The ones that actually felt emotionally torn as us...ummmm check out the suicide rate and who does it more... I mean why should i think like a man when I am a women. They aint trying think like me or put themselves in MY shoes with all my emotions &being considerate of my feelings from time to time in almost all my relationships (except 1). There use to be a time where a man would bring home the bacon for US woman to cook. Now we tooo bring home bacon and are cooking it AND doing everything possible a man typically wud do inna home when he is absent. Its a lot of pressure on us balancing thinking like them and have our natural thoughts as a woman
P.S-Forgot to add something. Thinking LIKE a man even proves to me that men and women arent really made for each other outside of procreation. It supoosed to be 2nd nature I would assume for you to think like yourself and your significant other to think like themself. It just seems to me that men have become the gods of the world that we worship, spoil, cater to.. We allllll want to go see "think like a man" to see if through the comdy if we can find a truth to get, keep, understand even more how they think. I kno already, but i will see it anyway ;)
I dont understand @Lotus saying men and women arent meant to be together other than to procreate. there are many many strong relationships out there between men and women. we always dwell on the negative and blame the men for our failures but we have to realize its as difficult for them as it is for us. i think both men and women dont try equally as hard to keep a decent loving relationship. And thats why divorce is on the rise. While we saying theres no good men, theyre saying theres no honest women.
This book/movie is just a mans perspective of hardships in relationships. It gives insight to what a man is thinking and feeling. Its not meant for u to glorify men, but instead to understand them. if women could see that we both have issues, maybe more men and women would work together to solve them.
Thinking like a man refers to thinking like a boy. Our generation of men arent really men but boys trapped in the "man" ideology. What makes a man are the mature decisions he makes everyday. If a majority of those decisions are the same ones that little boys make then... he is a boy. Plain and simple. I think that women should think like ACTUAL WOMEN and that will attract ACTUAL MEN. Trying to think like boys is just setting yourself up for failure. I think there should be something called MEN...THINK LIKE MEN AND NOT BOYS.
The book is based on one man's attempt to explain all men... you cant do that because of the different environment, mentalities and cultures that men exist in.
It means to think about yourself only-do what's best for you.
I like that last thing u said about 1 man trying to speak for all men, becuase thats true but I think Steve Harvey did a great job giving us the male perspective... but have u ever read the book or watched the movie? I dont agree with u that "think like a man" refers to boys. Its actually more about us as women only accepting & understanding a REal Man, figuring out what a REAL man is, and supporting our men as they step up and do what a mans supposed to do.

@Shakespeare V Eraepsekah--- anyone born with a penis & is over 18 is considered a man according to the law. They can buy cigarettes, vote, and if they committ a crime they will be charged as an adult not a juvenile b/c the legal system feels his character is immature and boyish . We can name call all we want. Plain and simple we are limited on quality men. Women are tthe new head of household cause in most cases they leaves his family for his OWN selfish pleasures while majority of women stay &raise their children ALONE. I think that in itself is being a woman, but I kno only a bitch runs from his family thats what i see many men do instead of facing his family issues with the mother of his children
@ Skyy----And yup times are changing.. Men(boys whatever) are no longer hunters, protecters and providers like generations before us. Look how even gay marriage is now legal in many states. I predict all 50 will soon and it'll become an option in other countries. And i do agree there are many healthy relationships with men and woman . But look at the statisics and the divorce rate. Yes we take focus to the negative ones when we bash heteorsexual relationships but its a unfortunate truth. But its the majority of cases. Living in atlanta these last four years i see waaaay more productive relationships amongst the gay community. I had a co-worker who was a man that treated his g/f and childs mother like CRAP. Once he got with a man he was helping pay his boyfriends rent helped him buy a car and everything and they even show public affection. Something he admits he never really did when he had a woman....

@Lotus, i guess that gay friend of urs didnt feel comfortable doing for his woman because he knew he was living a lie. ANd i can admit that there are lots of thriving gay relationships but i still believe in heterosexual love. I wish both men and women would both put in equal efforts to make their love work. most women i know are too proud and independent to put a man 1st in their life. And the men i know are too weak and ignorant to know when they found a woman worth being put first. I guess overall, we all have a struggle finding the right kind of relationships. we spend too much time in the wrong ones.
