It is said that the way to a mans heart is to keep his stomach full and his balls empty. Is the statement accurate ? Men and women are welcome to reply.

From my experience, yes. I have been in a relationship for almost 11 years and I know how to keep him happy, it's pretty simple. 😋

Glad to hear and thanks for the feedback.

we are pretty basic and simple.


I'm not touching this one. 😄

farmboy2017 Level 7 Apr 16, 2018

Coward, could be interesting ?

@VAL3941 Or...cause for an indictment!smile001.gif

@farmboy2017 u got what is acceptable here figured out huh? lol

@jorj yeah, I kinda typically stay out of these conversations.

@farmboy2017 some people can't just move along but instead got to attack others for things they cut up and joke about. those types are hilarious, sometimes its worth puttin something like this up just to make them go insane...lol

@jorj thanks, that is the whole idea of the post.


Why is there so much freely given advice on the way to a man's heart, but I've never seen a statement similar to that for the way to a woman's heart?

vegn_atheist Level 2 Apr 16, 2018

A credit card with unendable funds, perhaps. Every man knows that.

Women are swayed by chemistry, and no amount of advice can help a guy with the wrong chemistry, except, "Find someone else."

@EdEarl Men don't follow chemistry?

Otoh can't deny your statement, all but one of my long term relationships involved sparks.

@Qualia Obviously I cannot speak for all men. Personally, I'm strongly attracted by vision, but I suppose we can include that in chemistry.

To paraphrase Anna Karenina, there are as many ways to a woman's heart as there are hearts. Just sayin'.

Tis easy...just make her the center of your universe.

Women are just to damn complex...they know where their heart is but damned if they are going to let you know how to get to it, unless they want you to.


Until the Coolidge Effect kicks in. LOL

VictoriaNotes Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

Sirry, have never heard of the Coolidge effect. I am from South Africa remember ! Lol


Do I get a prize ???

@VAL3941 I'll be happy to Google it for you. smile009.gif

In biology and psychology, the Coolidge effect is a phenomenon seen in animal species whereby males (and to a lesser extent females) exhibit renewed sexual interest if introduced to new receptive sexual partners, even after cessation of sex with prior but still available sexual partners.

*The original experiments with rats applied the following protocol: A male rat was placed into an enclosed large box with four or five female rats in heat. He immediately began to mate with all the female rats repeatedly until he eventually became exhausted. The females continued nudging and licking him, yet he did not respond. When a novel female was introduced into the box, he became alert and began to mate once again with the new female. This phenomenon is not limited to common rats.

The Coolidge effect is typically found in most animals"


So, you might want to add "novelty" to the list. I do happen to know men who have more depth.

Thank you for the insight. Now I know why some females call me a rat ?

@VAL3941 Lol, deservingly so? smile002.gif

@VictoriaNotes the rat proves that males in general are programmed that way so we can't help our basic instincts. many men try to act like they arent like that and im sure there are a few, very few, that arent but for the most part men do get excited for the "new". blame mother nature tho, not us. atleast some of us will lie about it to protect feelings of loved ones. smile007.gif ill never forget the Coolidge effect now, thanks for the lesson taught today.

@jorj Really makes Jesus look like an asshole, eh?

"But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Matthew 5:28

No Coolidge Effect, no porn industry. It's that simple. The CE should be taught in sex education classes. If a couple makes a decision to remain monogamous, this is important information to have. However, it's not a license to be unfaithful.

@jorj yip! See these foolish posts do have some merit !


That is a false statement. The way to a man's heart is directly through his chest.
Everybody knows that.

KKGator Level 9 Apr 16, 2018

Yeah, so the say if you were a doctor.

@FortyTwo That's quite true. However, it really does depend on what you've got on hand for "tools". smile009.gif

Damn ! I can't keep up with you guys.


Ahhh, certainly contentment, at least for an afternoon.
had food, been laid, now sleep.

Rugglesby Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

Good on you mate !


Might have some truth to it if he's missing a brain or can't cook.

Silver1wun Level 7 Apr 16, 2018

Well said ! Lol


The Mosuo culture of China is matriarchial. Men and women do not live together, even if they have a long term relationship. Both men and women typically live with mother's extended family. Men may visit their sweetheart at night, if she allows him. In this culture, the women may do what they like with a man. Her extended family helps with her children, and he helps with his nieces and nephews.

EdEarl Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

Sounds crazy to me ?

I watched a documentary on the Mosuo culture. It was quite interesting.


The first time I got married I married a boy. Within the first year I realized my mistake and the second time I married a man. Huge difference. If I had wanted to be a mom I would have started from scratch not adopted by marriage. Everyman should be able to take care of himself, cook clean, pay bills and raise children equally. I'm not into spoiling people or being spoiled.
I know that's not very traditional. I'm very independent and love it when my partner is the same.

Ktcyan Level 7 Apr 16, 2018

So whdn it comes to balls, he must Masturbate ???

Consent is a 2 way street. No reason a man should be more important than a woman.

If truth be told a women is infinitely more important and productive than a man.


That's not the way to my heart. I can do those things for myself. I really hope most people see a Relationship has being more than that.

kenriley Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

As a dude, I have to eat almost every day. I have been on a nearly 10 year sabbatical from sex. So I feel the first part of the statement is true. Cooking together with a woman can be fun and lead to some spontaneous sexy times, but. If that happens and you have been slicing Habenero Peppers wash your hands thoroughly before any kind of foreplay!! The dash to the shower you might win. But a really really Hot woman will push you out of the way to get in.

Stevil Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

@Keyboard-Mama with the passing of enough time tragedies do turn into comedies

Maybe we shoukd try a " Start up " ?


We are simple beasts. Waiting on more comments on this post.......Could be good ....

Rudy1962 Level 9 Apr 16, 2018

I sure they will be as is the 1st reply.


I agree with the assessment that your post says you are a wise-ass kid without a sense of taste and a strong tendency toward machismo.

wordywalt Level 8 Apr 17, 2018

Who's assessment ? Whoever did not have to comment on the post.


If that's true, I have no heart.

Condor5 Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

Something keeps the blood pumping ?

@VAL3941, that's the other 'heart'.

@Condor5 So which one did you think the post was refering too ? Lol

@VAL3941, yes.


That may be enough for some men, but not for me.

wordywalt Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

So what mire do you want ?

@VAL3941 An intelligent, caring and sharing relationship in every sense. I am not an unintelligent animal who screws, eats, belches, and scratches his ass end genitals in public.

You missed the point of this entirely, sorry.

@OnaM Sorrybyou feel that way !

@OnaM ohferpetessake lighten up...he didn't even invent the saying, it has been around since forever!

@OnaM it is uptight humorless women like you that make it all uphill for the rest of us! How is it you can hurl insults at VAL3941, but nobody can point out that you have no sense of humor, you go ballistic on a "fellow woman" Hypocrite to the max!


I seem to find the men who want nothing more than a receptacle into which to pour themselves. In my experience, all you have to do is listen to them.

stinkeye_a Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

Many things said... have no longer meaning in today's society... I will like to believe I am more complex than that. Let them be moving forward.

Needs intellegence to move forward .

@VAL3941 following sayings don't give much to work with, I will say that was one of them. Sex and Dinner never been enough to keep me. More Complex than that.

@GipsyOfNewSpain These post make ys laugh though. That was the whole point. ( smile )

@VAL3941 smile back at ya!

@GipsyOfNewSpain Appreciated.


Not for me. Or rather, I should say.. while they are things that make me happy... they are not what I value above all else. For me, it's what I call "sparkiness"... seeing the world in a way that I hadn't seen before, an energetic enthusiasm for life, an intelligent and unique sense of humor... general ebullience paired with interest in others. That's what draws my ardor.

Anemynous Level 7 Apr 16, 2018

But what pkeases him ??

@VAL941 I am him. I was answering the question, which is not specifically about "pleasing". Abundant sex and food creates a kind of complacent comfort... but it is not the key to my heart. For my heart to get involved, another quality must be present.

Agreed but not an easy quest in this day and age. Too many self centred persons around.


I love food and banging and booze, but I'm not going to fall in love with someone because they do any of those things particularly well.

So you use it before you lose it ??

@VAL3941 It doesn't last forever, so why not? I'm a realist and I'm getting closer to not further away from pension. Might as well go out with a bang or two of three.

@ArthurPhillips I am already there. Life will get mor interesting for you from here on out.


My mothere said it was .....stomach full and glands empty.

I am younger than your mother. Lol


I’ve heard the way to a mans heart is through his stomach but hadn’t heard the balls part. Lol

Heart_Truth Level 6 Apr 16, 2018

Learn something new every day on this site.


I know a way out of my heart is some static expectations. Any dude I was with would have the same distaste for it. I need more random than expected to be in the kitchen or performing in some other way all the time. I need a guy that would find that dynamic only boring AF as well.


Stomach yes, balls no.

sassygirl3869 Level 9 Apr 16, 2018

Balls are more interesting ???

@OnaM true, but you must admitt these posts make us laugh .?


I Training!

Nothing has made me happy in the past, but I'm willing to try the experiment again...no wait, I'm not.
