Chris Bundas –
I hate to break it to you ladies, but us men can’t read your minds. However, one thing we do know is that women wish we were more educated when it comes to the fairer sex.
So here is an attempt to school us boys on things women wish we already knew about them. Hopefully this new found enlightenment will provide the guidance you need to stop screwing up with your significant other… or at least a little less.
In response, askmen.com questioned many females and asked the ladies to come up with a list of the ‘Top 10 Things They Wish Men Knew’.
Now, if only we’d known all this before our last girlfriend dumped us… It’s okay bud, we’ve all been there. Just learn, move forward and try and hang on to the next one!
10. Don’t Try To Impress Women
Women want to be impressed but probably not in the way you think. Things like swearing, fighting and drinking are more for impressing other guys. Yea sure, they may make you seem tough, and possibly like a TV show character a womsn may want to watch, but definitely not date. If your primary goal is to act like a brute when the lady you’re into is around, trust me… she won’t be around for long.
9. They Don’t Shave Their Legs Every Day
Male or female, we all have body hair. By the time we’re old enough to vote, our bodies are pumping out all kinds of hair in illogical places. And when you cut it, it just grows back! Society decided to tell women that they weren’t allowed to have leg hair and the ladies have been quite polite about it. For that, you owe them one, especially given the uncivilized fur that’s covering your legs. But just like you skip leg day at the gym, women tend not to shave their legs when they don’t have a compelling reason to do so.
8. When You’re Mean To Her…
When you were just a little boy, the accepted means of interacting with the opposite sex was by teasing, name-calling and toy-stealing. Now that you’re all grown up, nastiness and name-calling has no place in flirtatious conduct. The friendly teasing thing you’ve got going on with that cute girl you keep randomly running into… That’s totally ok, but there’s a big difference between being a naughty charmer and a huge impolite jerk.
7. Most Girls Don’t Care About Money
For a lot of guys, there’s an assumption that women are only interested in rich guys, and the richer he is, the more interested she’ll be. Truth be told, there’s a chance your average girl may prefer the rich guy over the homeless guy. But just like you’re interested in more aspects of a woman than just her bra size alone, your bank account doesn’t necessarily matter to her. If you’re a girl’s type, she’s going to be interested regardless of your dolla, dolla bills y’all.
6. You Better Introduce Her As Your Girlfriend
Ok, so you’re over at your girl’s place. You’ve been exclusive for a few months now and you’ve each deleted your Plenty Of Fish accounts to prove your love. Then her friends show up, and she says, “Hi guys! This is my friend, Brad.”
Hurts, doesn’t it? Now you’re wondering…. “Am I too ugly?” “Did I say something wrong?”
See what I’m saying here! So when you’re introducing her to your friends, you introduce her as your girlfriend. And if you’re not sure about the status of your relationship, then it’s probably time to have that conversation…
5. Keeping Secrets Is Cheating
When your cute ex added you on Facebook two months ago, you didn’t tell your girlfriend. Then when she liked a couple of your statuses and you liked a few of her pics back, still… you said nothing. And then it continues on and on until now, when you’re meeting up with your ex for coffee to ‘catch up’. Guess, what, pal? You might not have crossed the line, but there’s a reason you’re not telling your girl — you know that she wouldn’t take it well. Although you may not be cheating-cheating, you’re still cheating. Relationships are built on trust. Maybe it’s time to own up to some of that hazy behavior if you want to keep your girl in your life
4. They Worry If You Don’t Text Them Back
Text messages are a funny thing… As meaningless as they sometimes seem, they secretly are so full of meaning. When you get a “Baby, what’s wrong?” text or a “Why won’t you pick up?” text, and you choose not to answer… you’re sending a message that says they aren’t important. Be a gentleman: If she texts you, just text back. (but not while driving for f#^k sakes!)
3. They Are Self-Conscious By Nature
Women can be very self-conscious — constantly bombarded by images of unrealistically beautiful women in magazines, movies and on billboards. Every time you’re around other girls, there’s a good chance your lady is thinking, “Uh oh…” That doesn’t mean you should stop talking to the entire female species, but knowing women have this worry is something worth being aware of. Best advice; don’t simply accuse her of “making a big deal out of nothing!”
2. The Way You Write “I Love You” Matters
If she says, “I love you” and you say, “Me too,” chances are, that’s not going to be the end of the discussion. Similarly, if she texts, “I love you,” and you text back, “Luv u 2,” you’re going to get a phone call! While this is just a minute detail to you, it speak volumes to her about how committed you are to the sentiment, and in this case… not a hell of a lot. If you love her, don’t skimp… Use all the letters!
1. When She’s Mad, She Wants You To Give Her Attention
Yes, it’s extremely counter-intuitive, but when she starts cursing at you, she really wants you to kiss her and tell her you love her. And when she ignores you, give her attention. Fights and spats are mended with the admission of wrongdoing, forgiveness and sweet, sweet make-up sex!
