Remember two simple rules: First, do not need to demand, and secondly, should speak directly, without using hints. No need to give orders, just ask, could a man give you a fragile lady small favor. For example, priobnimite husband and say softly, "Honey, I'm so tired at work and hungry, and you probably want to eat. Can you help me cook dinner? Together we can handle faster and then sleep well. " Colleague, especially if it has positioned itself as a strong man, you can say, "I'm so confused, because the project got too complicated, and I did not understand at all the intricacies. Could you help me a little bit, because you have more experience in such matters. " Then right and briefly express your request without using hints, as men often either do not understand them or pretend they do not understand.
In no case do not reproach a man when asked about something. Needless to say, that he would never do at home is not doing so could even pick up a child from kindergarten. If your request is made - must thank, because it motivates for further assistance. If you hear in response to failure without scandals and do not insult a man, or in the future, and he does not want to do something for you.
