The Best Way to Keep a Man is to Let Him Go (among other things)
by Joyce Fields

THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK

What is the reaction that you want to get from your man?  The answer to that question should determine what you will say or do.  If you don’t have time to think, it probably would be better if you say or do nothing—for the time being.  You can always say or do something later—after you’ve thought about it.

In many cases, after you’ve thought about it (or slept on it), you will find that it’s not worth saying or doing anything about.  But, if it continues to bother you, then you must say or do something.  Be careful.  Be smart.  You can also consider writing him a note, telling him what happened, why it bothers you, and what you would like to see happen as a result.  Hopefully, he’ll respond in a positive manner.

You should know your man, so act accordingly.

ALWAYS BE A LADY

There’s an old saying: “Be a lady in the parlor and a tramp in the bedroom.”  I’m going to talk about being a lady; I’ll leave you to your own imagination about being a tramp in the bedroom.

“In the parlor” is addressing when you are in the company of, or can be seen by, others.  Ladies are respectful of themselves and others.

Ladies don’t get drunk in public.  Ladies don’t insult their men (or their children), especially not in the presence of others.  Ladies are not loud and boisterous.  Ladies make their men, children, and others feel good about being in their presence because others know that they will be treated with class, dignity, and respect.  Ladies have a positive reputation.

When you don’t act like a lady, your negative reputation precedes you.  Everyone is nervous about what you may do or say.  Eliminate the mystery and apprehension.  Act like a lady.  Be a lady.
