Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is a book by Steve Harvey which describes for women Harvey’s concept of what men really think about love, relationships, intimacy, and commitment.

He writes:

  • “The problem for all too many women who call in to my radio show, though, is that they just can’t get that reciprocation from men, and women then end up feeling disappointed, disenfranchised, and disillusioned by their failed relationships.”
  • “I teach them very quickly that expecting a man to respond to them the way a woman would is never going to work. They then realize that a clear-eyed, knowing approach to dealing with men on their terms, on their turf, in their way, can, in turn, get women exactly what they want.”

In his book, Harvey instructs women on how to be a “keeper” rather than a “sports fish”. He asserts that men are “simple”, and that women should understand that they can never be first in a man’s life without understanding and accepting that men are driven by:

  1. Who they are
  2. What they do
  3. How much they make

He says it’s “just plain dumb” to let a man lock you into a monogamous premarital relationship, where you share a bed, bills, and even kids. The only way to convert your “committed relationship” into a marriage is to insist on setting a date for the wedding.

Yes, Steve Harvey is a radio show and TV show host, but over the years he’s learned a few things about love. He advises women to act like women—and don’t give up your “cookie” too soon.

3. The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm

“Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision?”

This book shows how love is harder to achieve in the modern world. It helps the reader to understand how love can conquer loneliness and make one a more magnanimous person.

4. The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James

Perhaps I shall find out.”Regarded as Henry James’ finest work, Isabel Archer’s marriage to Osmond Gilbert leads to her suffering from a cruel and oppressive husband. This book portrays to the reader what it means to be a radiantly good person who falls in love with a terrible person.
