A. What do men need the most? In a word, support. I surveyed 100 married men here are ten answers..
But just so you’ll know what you can do to save your relationship right now, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite quotes revealing what guys want their partners to know. And there isn’t anything they mention that you can’t do today… maybe even this minute.

"Help me be a hero to my kids. Speak well of me and the good things that I do. Don’t only speak about my shortcomings."

"When you tell me you’re proud of me it gives me a boost -- especially when I’m beating myself up, mad at myself for not being Bill Gates."

"Be my advocate, be on my side. If you think I’m wrong, try to guide me to where you think I should be. Don’t beat me up and drag me there."
