E VERYTHING YO U NEED TO KNO W ABO UT MEN

AND RELATIO NS HIPS IS RIG HT HERE

’ve made a living for more than twenty years making people

laugh—about themselves, about each other, about family,

and friends, and, most certainly, about love, sex, and rela-

tionships. My humor is always rooted in truth and full of wisdom—the

kind that comes from living, watching, learning,

and knowing. I’m told my jokes strike chords with people because

they

can

relate

to them,

especially

the

ones

that

explore

the

dynamics of relationships between men and women. It

never ceases to amaze me how much people talk about relationships,

think

a

bout them, read a bout them, ask a bout them—

even get in them without a clue how to move them forward.

For sure, i

f there’s anything I’ve discovered during my journey

here on God’s earth, it’s this: (a) too many women are clueless

about men, (b) men get away with a whole lot of stuff in rela-

tionships because women have never understood how men

think, and (c) I’ve got some valuable information to change all

of that.

I discovered this when my career transitioned to radio with

the Steve Harvey Morning Show. Back when my show was based

in Los Angeles, I created a segment called “Ask Steve,” during

which women could call in and ask anything they wanted to

about relationships. Anything. At the very least, I thought “Ask

Steve” would lead to some good comedy, and at first, that’s

pretty much what it was all about for me—getting to the jokes.

But it didn’t take me long to realize that what my listeners,

mostly women, were going through wasn’t really a laughing

matter. They had dozens of categories of needs and concerns in

their lives that they were trying to get a handle on—dating,

commitment, security, family baggage, hopes for tomorrow,

spirituality, in-law drama, body image, aging, friendships, children,

work/home

balance,

education.

You

name

the

topic,

somebody

asked

me about

it.

And

heading

up the

list

of topics

women

wanted

to

talk

about

was—you

guessed

it—men.

My female listeners really wanted answers—answers to

how to get out of a relationship what they’re putting into it.

On those “Ask Steve” segments, and later, through the

“Strawberry Letters” segment I do on the current incarnation

of the Steve Harvey Morning Show, women have made clear that

they want an even exchange with men: they want their love

to be reciprocated in the same way they give it; they want

their romantic lives to be as rewarding as they make them for

their potential mates; they want the emotions that they turn

on full blast to be met with the same intensity; and they expect

the premium that they put on commitment to be equally adhered

to,

valued,

and

respected.
