Believe it or not, men are simple creatures when it comes to certain things. What a man simply wants is to feel pride in what he does and who he is with. You can withhold money, a promotion, and friendships, but the minute you start trying to mess with a real man’s pride, that is when the primitive beast will come out.
Never try to make a man beg for something he has earned or truly wants, not if you truly value that man.
Dr Flavius Akerele III
