Global — Who hasn't wondered why the guy in their life just doesn't seem to do what needs to be done? Whether it's committing to a relationship or pursuing loftier goals. Well, actor and comedian Steve Harvey (The Steve Harvey Show), has written a tell all relationship book (from a man's perspective) on how men operate called "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" (2009), which has been adapted into the movie Think Like A Man. I'm pretty sure men from all over will be labeling him a traitor (as they did in the movie).
Mya (Meagan Good) grabs a copy of Steve Harvey's book in "Think Like A Man."
l. to r. Dominic "The Dreamer" (Michael Ealy), Cedric "The Happy Divorced Guy" (Kevin Hart), Bennett "The Happy Married Guy" (Gary Owen), Michael "The Mama's Boy" (Terrence J), Zeke "The Player" (Romany Malco), and Jeremy "The Non-Committer" (Jerry Ferrara).
This movie, like the book, advises women on what a man is thinking when he acts a certain way and how they should respond accordingly. He has termed women as "the cookie" and men the "cookie monster." The cookie is defined as either a "sport fish" (something for a guy to play around with then toss back when he is finished) or a "keeper" (the long term girl that could become a wife). To illustrate this, he has given each male type a moniker from the mama's boy and the dreamer to the player and the non-committer. The female types are just as interesting from the single mother to the 90-day rule girl, who says no to casual intimacy.
