Below, find perspectives from single, divorced and married men on common relationship issues: On why women should "stroke his ego": Single man:' Cater 2 U' [by Destiny's Child] should be on every woman’s playlist and kept on repeat…They knew that no matter where a woman was in life, she should always be able to cater to her man’s needs — prepare his meals, draw him a bath and massage his feet every now and then."Divorced: The lesson is this: once couples understand each other’s insecurities, the dynamics of their relationship will change for the better and love will flow naturally.It possibly alludes to the exact opposite, that he possesses an inner strength to make the intelligent decision to exit the situation."On why men lie: Single: "It’s risky for men to be straightforward with women because the truth doesn’t always yield the results we are intending, and when we are being direct with our women, our messages can sometimes go in one ear and out the other.So lies are perpetuated to get our women to listen to us."Married: "I really don’t think any of us want to know the 100 percent truth about our significant others."On why men cheat: Single: "I saw a joke that said, ' A man can cheat on his woman and sleep like a baby in the same bed next to her, but will feel bad about getting a haircut from someone other than his regular barber,' which I found to be hilariously funny and true."Sometimes, as men progress in life and in their careers, we are exposed to a new supply of women who weren’t previously available, so we feel the need to explore these potential new mates that are now accessible."Divorced: "Simply put, cheating is the result of lust; when it comes to a woman, a man is a natural predator.He stalks his prey and pounces every chance he gets until she either gives in or ignores his every advance.We don’t get together and hold these types of conversations like women do, so this is a platform for that,” Gateau, 32, said.As owner of Bed-Stuy yogurt shop Brooklyn Swirl, Alerte said he and Gateau would talk to several female customers each week, many of whom would question the different perspectives the two friends have to relationships.
