This, a thousand times this, always this. When women have issues, and they will, what they want is for YOU to listen to their issues, sympathise with their issues, reinforce them in believing that the issues are not their fault and most of all they want you to NOT fix the issues.
Other than that just find a good balance of doing what she wants you to do and what you want to do. If you only do what she wants she will think you are boring and weak and if you only do what you want you are an a-hole, so find a good compromise.
