How do men understand ‘romance’?
There are a lot of magazines, newspapers and online resources about how men can learn about women for better understanding and accepting them as they are but there are few resources for vice versa. There is said that men only need 2 things: food and. I don’t agree with it. Men want more than these elementary things. They want a woman to serve, to cook, to take care of them, just like his mother does. They want that their woman to be a lady in the society, At least this is a saying of our country which, from my experience, it’s true most of it.
What do this means?
Well, it means that a man wants a smart woman by his side when they go out, who can have intelligent discussions and arguments so he can be very proud of her when meeting with friends.
He wants a great housekeeper so their house to be clean all the time, to have good meals and all the clothes clean.
And not the last one, I don’t really know the exact meaning of this. I only can guess. In my opinion that, just like a pro ! What do you think?
Regarding the title:

Women are from Venus and men are from Mars, aren’t they?
