OK, you understand what women want. You have tailored your image accordingly. You have chosen a woman. You have met her. You have dated her. You have romanced her. You have made love to her. And now you are in a relationship. Finally you can relax. Wrong!

Now the real work begins. Previously, you were in a situation where she saw you at your best. When you were meeting her and dating her, you made sure that your clothes were right, you were groomed and the mood was right. Your best foot was forward. She saw not you, but your best image. Now that the relationship has begun, you will be together more often and she is going to see more of the real you - your weaknesses, your insecurities, your bad habits, and if you are like most men, you may be in real trouble.

Now, more than ever, you are going to need imagination, spontaneity and leadership. You are going to have to continue to romance her. You must continue to be infinitely aware of the eight elements of what women really want and maintain your image accordingly. You are going to have to make sure that she does not become disenchanted with what she has. And don't forget - people are more apt to become disenchanted with what they have, than with what they don't have.
