**FACTS THAT FATHERS NEVER TELL THIER SONS ABOUT WOMEN**

You Can Not Chase Money And
Women At
The Same Time – Even when so
many fathers
have made this mistake in their
youthful
days they still end up failing to
tell their sons
that one can not hunt for money
and
women at the same time. It is
either one
makes money and then start
chasing
women or the other way round.
2. A Man Gets More Respect
Based On His Pocket – This
point is not trying to encourage
crime or ungodly acts in other to
make
wealth but to face reality. It is a
known fact
that both within the home front
and the
society at large, a man is
respected the more
according to how comfortable
and
financially free he becomes.
3. Women Can Make Or Ruin You
– So many
fathers even when they know
the truth of
the power of any woman, still
shy away
from enlightening their sons on
the critical
hidden powers a woman
possesses. From
the days of Adam, Samson,
Solomon, Abacha
and other notable men, we have
seen how a
man can either rise or fall
through the
power and influence of a
woman. A man
should therefore thread as softly
as possible
when dealing with a woman.
4. A Woman Can Smell A
Successful Man From
Miles Away – Women naturally
have an
hidden instinct of knowing a
man who is
successful or have the tendency
of being
successful in the future. So many
women
have stuck to a struggling and
upcoming
man against their parents wish
of marrying
an already made man. A woman
will say
things like “he has a bright
future”, “he has
potentials” or “he will be a great
man in
future”. Ladies who have uttered
such
words and stuck by their men
have never
gone wrong. Example is how
Michelle
Obama stuck with Barack
through thick and
thin.
5. A Woman Doesn’t Like A Weak
Man –
When fathers tell their sons
never to give in
to a woman’s pressure, they
mostly advise
their sons to be forceful on
issues to prove
he is the man of the house.
When in reality,
women prefer men who say less
and do
more, rather than the ones who
keep
talking but do less. The latter is
the typical
meaning of a weak man but
fathers always
advice to do such to prove he is
the king of
the house.
6. Women Appreciate Men With
Fatherly
Characters – Most men always
miss out on
this and as such never advise
their sons to
be a father figure to their wives.
Women are
best at doing this but every
woman wants a
man who sits her down to
advice her,
reason with her, give her
constructive
criticisms and above all, believe
in her.
7. It Is Easier To Catch A Cheating
Man Than
Catch A Cheating Woman – Most
men till date
don’t know that it is far easier to
get caught
cheating as a man than catching
a woman
who cheats. A woman can make
a man
‘father’ every single child she has
but only
her knows who the biological
father is,
while a man can hardly keep it as
a secret
from his wife when he has a love
child
outside the matrimonial home.
