I think it is a great list. I am however interested to hear what the men think on the board. How would your list differ guys?

Well I can see that my list of 20 things to make him feel special did not go over very well here on this board so I guess it was my mistake to share it here ... so good luck to all of you who do come in and read it and enjoy it ...

I think a lot of marriages are in trouble b/c men are viewed as just sexual creatures (and women as just emotional). I've found out in my marriage that men are actually extremely sensitive, and dont even realize that the above list really matters to them.

Karen, that list reminds me of something I'd seen from the '50s! It was a list/description of a wife's duty/responsibility to make her husband feel good. Your list is sweet, but it's also antiquated. And it works BOTH ways!
