Steve Harvey was on the Oprah Winfrey Show last Friday, telling her and co-host Gayle King how to think like a man. He was promoting his new New York Times best selling book, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man”

Here is some of the word of advice he gave to Oprah’s audience

“We’re very protective. We mark our territory. If a man loves you…he’s willing to profess it. He’ll give you a title after a while. You’re going to be his lady, his woman, his fiancée, his wife, his baby’s mama, something,If he’s introducing you after six months, ‘This is…Oprah,’ you should be standing there going, ‘This is going nowhere.'”

“Men don’t come up to you to just talk. We come up to you with a plan, We’re looking across the room at you, and we don’t care about your hopes and dreams. We don’t care about what your future holds. We saw something we wanted.”

“We’ve got to have your support. Whatever adventure we’re out on, whatever pursuit in life, we need your support. Then we need your loyalty. That’s your love. We’ve got to know that you belong to us, And we’ve got to have a cookie. Everybody likes cookies. That’s the thing about a cookie. I like oatmeal raisin…but if you’ve got vanilla cream, I’ll eat that too.”

“You’ve got sports fishermen, and you’ve got guys out there fishing to eat. You’ve got guys that are fishing to keep the fish, and you’ve got guys that are fishing to catch them, unhook them and throw them back,You’ve got to determine along the way which one of the fish you’re going to be.”

“We play on all of that. … We created the term ‘gold digger’ so you won’t ask us for nothing. We created the term ‘nagging’ so you can quit badgering us. These are terms that we created so you can require less of us.”

Steve also proposed a 90 day rule for women to sleep with men, saying.

“In 90 days they checked me out. They determined if I was easy to work with, if I got along well with others, if I showed up when I said I was going to show up, if I was worthy.”
