Mysteries of the male mind revealed by Rev Run and Tyrese in new book 'Manology'

Ever wonder about what is going on inside a man’s brain when it comes to dating and relationships? A new book by singer Tyrese Gibson and Rev Run of Run DMC offers insight to the inner thoughts of a man's mind, life lessons and how to find happiness in your relationships.

The book called "Manology," came about after an unexpected disagreement between the two music stars on whether or not marriage is truly meant to last forever. This morning, Tyrese and Rev Run talk with Soledad O'Brien on “Starting Point” to further discuss some of the secrets of the male mind and ultimately help both men and women be more successful in their relationships.

Tyrese, a single dad of a five-year-old girl, admits that he is still hesitant to settle down but the book has advice that can help him and other men “in transition” figure out what their next move is. The Grammy-nominated singer adds that he believes in “getting things out of your system before you finally settle down.”

Rev Run, a married father of six, says the biggest mistake that women make is trying to bring a man into their life before they have their own life.

“The self-love is what you need to have," he says. "Once you create the self-love then you can go out and find love. Many women get lonely or needy and I like to tell them that just because you’re boyless doesn’t mean you have to be joyless.” He says when women create a life built around self-love it is viewed as highly attractive and “that’s how Beyonce got Jay-Z...her being busy and her also being feminine when she was with Jay is what closed it.”

The book also discusses women who share too much information too soon. Tyrese says that when women first meet a man they should “shut up” and stop “spilling your guts over exposing too much information about things you went through in the past.”

He explains that when a man first meets a woman he likely thinks of her as an A+ and by going into multitudes of details about disfunction, infidelity or other situations in your life, “you’ve now devalued yourself” to a D-.

    Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on this excellent blog. Some tips i would tell people will be to give up the actual mentality that they buy now and pay back later. As a society all of us tend to do that for many issues. This includes holidays, furniture, in addition to items we would like. However, you have to separate your own wants out of the needs. When you're working to raise your credit score make some sacrifices. For example you can shop online to economize or you can visit second hand suppliers instead of costly department stores to get clothing.

    These two men are right, women just let it all out, start talking about past relationships and men play on that. Alot of men just want sex and not a serious relationship, but men will play the game to get what they want.
