Fishing For Men

As I read Steve Harvey’s assessment of men in Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man I felt a little sad. The men he described seemed so far from the wonderful people God created them to be. Harvey says that when men approach us they come in search of one thing—sex. This is an unfortunate generalization because there are many men who want more from a relationship with a woman than sex, like a life-long companion.

Nevertheless his lesson teaches women how to identify a man who views women as “sports fish” and wants to play from the one who is looking for a “Keeper” and wants to commit. I found myself letting out a sigh of relief when he said that we should let the players walk away. He, however, fails to differentiate the long-time players from husband material. In his scheme it seems that a long-term commitment is just as good as marriage. Not cool!

Then Harvey shows us how we can increase our chances of catching a man, which is strange because he says that we are the prey. But remember, we are learning how to think like…men. So, what kind of women do men consider Keepers? At this point, let’s default to a different source since the goal is marriage. The question then is, “What kind of women do potential husbands consider Keepers?” Psalm 31:30 says, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”
