What makes a man happy

I wasn't feeling too good today and to counter that I decided to think about things that make me happy and so this list came along. Do not expect an intelligent view, after all it's just a guy's view on things ;)

Vladimir's "What makes a man happy" list

  1. Watching his team win!
  2. Vacation on a tropical island
  3. Driving a cabriolet on a long twisty road
  4. Drinking beer with his best buddies
  5. Solving technical problems
  6. Having no personal problems
  7. Being able to teach someone things he knows
  8. Having big goals in life and achieving them in timely manner
  9. New gadgets. And this.
  10. Practicing sports
  11. Being best at something
  12. Warm home or a hug on a cold rainy day
  13. His favorite food on the table after stressful day at work. Afternoon nap.
  14. Being in love with a woman who is enriching his life.
  15. If you are a girl or a woman and found this article because you searched for an answer, than your man is already happy for having you!


Not too much, not too little.

    Thanks Veladimir
    I haven't been in a relationship for a while and just fell in love with a great guy who I'd love to make happy. I feel he is broken hearted and needs some respect , support and love. I'm trying to understand his needs and help him feel better . We both love eachother , but I need to know more about men. The list was excellent . Thanks again.

    I'm impressed, I agree with your list being around my brothers and my father for quite a while. This will help me with my husband as I want him happy always.

    Thanks again.

    Great list! Pretty much what I would list myself. I don't practice sports any longer, as I don't want to risk breaking something, but I do exercise daily. Early each morning I go out for a brisk/fast walk and listen to music on my MP3 player. It is a great time to think about things.

    Thanks for your Amazing Grace theme and helping all us bloggers out.

    Right! Any woman in her right mind knows what makes a man happy. We, the girls, just can't cope with them all...especially when his team is losing. :D
    Same applies to men when they have to understand what makes us happy.

      Well don't call him every 5 minutes, but perhaps call him to fix or solve something! Men love to be able to do things like that. But make sure it's something he can really do! After it's fixed, praise him alot! LOL, ah, men are so simple, i love them so much!

    Just let them blow off steam, they'll come around and be their old selves again. It's probably not even what "what made them happy yesterday" but something else is bugging them. I have 3 older brothers, I've watched men all my life. If he's shouting in front of you, at least he feels comfortable enough to do so. I sound like Dear Abby or something! I'm just a lowly web designer... Love Vladimir!!

    Love it! I always look forward to your emails and visit your site often! You're great!! Love the list. As my fiance said to me last night after a meal I actually prepared "I'm so happy, dinner was great"! Men are really quite simple creatures!

  16. Jan 11th, 2009 2:19 AM

    I came to your blog for a list of WordPress plugins, but found this gem. Our lists differ only a little, and it reminds me I need to update my list. Thanks. Peace.
