7 Things Men Crave ...


Being the only female in a house full of males, I know of many things guys crave and they don’t all have to do with food.3

When I think of the word ‘crave’ I immediately think of things like chocolate covered cherries, dipping ginger snaps in melted chocolate, or just chocolate in general…all kinds!

Having a husband and raising two teenage boys has opened my eyes to a new world of cravings, from a male point of view.

Here are 7 things men crave, at least in this household.

7. Sports

It doesn’t matter if the sporting event is on television or at the boys’ high school;2

both seem to bring up the level of testosterone in males.

I’ve noticed that this isn’t only with the males living in this household, but a majority of the men in general.

They seem to thrive on the roughness seen in many contact sports.

I’ve seen men sitting next to me with a wild look in their eyes as they watch a heated play in a football game.

6. Action Movies

I have to admit, I do like a good action flick every now and then, but I also like to watch comedies and the occasional romance too.

My husband and sons live off of action movies.

The more explosions and shooting there is, the better;

in their eyes.

If they had their way, I’m sure action movies would be the only type watched.3

My husband used to work in special effects, so I’m sure some of his infatuation with action movies stems from being the one who once initiated the explosions in movies many years ago.

5. Soda Pop

Whether it’s called soda, pop, cola, or soda pop, it is preferred over water by my husband and one son.2

Many of the men I know will choose soda over juice, milk, or water.

I’m not sure if it’s the high fructose corn syrup that has them hooked or the fact that they can have some excellent belching contests when drinking carbonated beverages.

This seems to be a favorite past time for my boys and their friends.

Thankfully, they usually take this bonding activity outside and I don’t have to listen to the chorus of belches.
