What prompted the writing of Relationship Tips T. A. Griffin heard stories of loving relationships and abuses in relationships from friends, family, and coworkers (females), which prompted him to explore ways that men could develop healthful, loving relationships with women. It was not all about sex. Men’s relationships with women were fostered by what they saw as children. If the fathers, uncles, cousins, and other males they came in contact with treated women with respect, they too learned to treat women with respect. If there was abuse that was also learned, it became “follow the leader.” In 1990, T. A. began his literary journey of relationship tips by asking his female relatives, friends, and coworkers to give him their perspective on relationships with men and what could be done to foster a better relationship. Some of the key elements to a healthful relationship are the following: Understanding—men must clearly understand the nature and role of a woman as well as themselves Education—no matter what your station in life, you always have something to teach someone, and you will always have something to learn. Fatherhood—making babies is not fatherhood Don’t Compare—if you are always looking back, you cannot see what is in front of you Respect—before you can respect someone else, you must be able to respect yourself Remember—remember her birthday, her favorite color. It’s the little things that count. Don’t take her for granted—any man who takes a woman for granted is totally out of his mind Friendship—always be a friend with whom she can discuss her innermost feelings Criticism—the quickest way to get rid of a woman is to constantly criticize her. Constructive criticism is okay if done in a gentle and loving way. Read and ponder the tips as well as practice them, and you too can have a healthful, happy, loving relationship with the woman in your life.
