Valentine's day is just around the corner, and men everywhere are getting nervous. Girls, we have a hard time with Christmas & Valentine's Day. Sometimes it seems like coming up with a good gift is a matter of life & death.

I learned a long time ago that women want & expect things they don't ask for. We guys are somehow supposed to just "know."  We don't. Therein lies the problem. A British supermarket chain called Sainsbury's recently commissioned a survey to find out what women want most.


Here's the top 10....

#1.)  Cuddling with their partner.

#2.)  Comfortable underwear.

#3.)  Someone telling them they've lost weight.

#4.)  Making someone ELSE happy by giving them a present.

#5.)  Sexy underwear:  Which finished three spots BELOW comfortable underwear.

#6.)  Finding a bargain.

#7.)  Getting flowers.

#8.)  Getting a present:  Which finished four spots BELOW giving a present.

#9.)  Being told she looks younger than she really is.

#10.)  Getting a compliment from a stranger about how she looks.

I can't speak for other men, but I don't see any big surprises on that list.  The survey went on to list a top 50, and some of the other entries actually did surprise me. I found a couple things on this list a little troubling.

They would rather win an ARGUMENT . . . # 28 . . . than have a day at a spa, #31!

Maybe I'm being obtuse, but it's hard for me to understand why conflict would be regarded as a more favorable experience than a day of pampering and relaxation.
