For this list, I interviewed 4 different girls. Here is a short list of 10 things that they came up with! Check it out, and pay close attention, all you men out there! This information is vital for all of you, no matter if you’re in a relationship or not!
Be A Gentleman
This includes holding open doors, offering to pay, holding the umbrella when it rains, or even doing so much as to go get the car when it’s raining. BE CHIVALROUS. I know that most girls say that they want to be treated equally, but that doesn’t mean they want to be your “bro.” They want to be treated like you cherish them as a woman, not just a person. There IS a difference, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise (unless they’re one of those feminist people who don’t shave anything, in that case, you’re on your own).
“sup gurl how u doen, letz talk l8tr.” NO, for the love of God, no. PLEASE, don’t speak like this to anyone. Not just girls. If you want to be taken seriously, don’t speak like your keyboard is having a seizure. Don’t abbreviate words, and for the millionth time, USE PUNCTUATION. Girls think that a guy who uses proper grammar and punctuation is sexy. Secondly, text her first. Not in every situation, but you should know that when you’re trying to impress her and give her the correct signals, she should see your interest. Be a man and press that send button. It seems like a stupid thing, but trust me, nothing makes a girl light up like seeing a call or text from the object of her affection.
If you take anything away from this post, please remember this: Nothing gets a girl going like a guy who smells amazing. Shower every day, or as frequently as you can. Secondly, stay clean-shaven. However, if you have a sweet beard or other facial hair, make sure you keep it well trimmed. Make sure that you take care of yourself, because if you don’t, why should she care about you if you don’t even care about yourself? WEAR DEODORANT. Every day. For the rest of your life. Make it a habit to brush your teeth, trim your nails, and maybe even use a nice splash of aftershave or cologne. It will not go unnoticed. She won’t be able to resist you.
Don’t Wear Workout Attire In Public
I can’t tell you how common this one is. Guys, if you aren’t working out, DON’T WEAR ATHLETIC ATTIRE IN PUBLIC. It’s a turn off. It makes you look like a slob, and it makes you look like you want people to think you work out. If you exercise as much as you wish to give off, the results will show by themselves. Wear clothes that compliment your body, and allow people to see your style, not the newest selection from Under Armour. This also includes athletic shoes. Now, I realize there are nice athletic shoes, but that doesn’t mean you should wear your sweaty, smelly, strangely colored running shoes. If you must wear an athletic shoe, make sure it is clean and matches what you’re wearing. In most cases, however, an athletic shoe is by no means recommended.
We get it, we aren’t always the most proper ones at the table either. That doesn’t mean that you need to eat like a pack of wolves, though. Chewing at a normal pace and keeping your elbows off the table are still good things to remember. Do like your mama taught you: Being polite at the table can help girls see that you’re trying to impress them, and you look like you have yourself more together. Be a man, not just a guy.
We’ve all done it; we’ve all taken a dive for the remote and wanted to turn to our favorite show or sporting event. Think before you change that channel. Talk about it with your friends or the girl you’re with, and see what everyone wants to watch. Maybe you can compromise! Don’t monopolize the TV time to just yourself. Also, if I had to make a generic stereotype, I seriously doubt she wants to watch the new DieHard movie with you. (But if she loves those kinds of movies – kudos to you!)
So, you’re walking out in public, maybe you’re on a date or running an errand with your girl, and all of a sudden, you see someone you know. When you start talking to said person, don’t forget to introduce your lady friend. Nothing is more awkward than looking like “THAT girlfriend” that has to stand there and act as if she’s just waiting for you to get done with your conversation. Show respect, be a gentleman about things, introduce her, and include her in the conversation.
Be More Understanding
We all know girls have that time of the month where they bloat, have massive headaches, cramps, and raging migraines. If you were in those shoes, I think you’d be a little flustered as well. Just remember: we have feelings, too, and while we are sensitive sometimes, that doesn’t mean you can just dismiss our feelings as being “over dramatic.”
Most people today have a phone or mobile device of some sort that have an auto correct program. Correcting a girl’s grammar is not the way to sweep her off her feet. Chances are, if she has an IQ above room temperature, she has already seen her mistake after she sent it, but she just didn’t feel like correcting it. Be nice, and stop caring so much. If it’s a pet peeve of yours, let her know gently.
Don’t be afraid to be honest with girls. There’s no way around the truth, and girls don’t typically like having things sugar coated. Even though a lot of times they seem to over react, you cannot let that keep you from doing your moral obligation to be truthful. Relationships are built on trust and honesty, not lies. Girls appreciate a man who can tell the truth, and who accept the consequences with dignity. Communicate with them, and you will see the benefits. When you’re more honest with a girl, she is much more likely to trust you and confide in you for all kinds of things. Lying is the absolute lowest thing you can do to anyone, so, please, don’t be that kind of guy.
