10 Rules Every Guy Needs To Know
August 4, 2011
All of you male creatures out there – don’t you wonder from time to time what women really want? Do I see a slight nodding? If yes, this might be something for you.
Rule No.1 – Be a gentleman.
We just like these guys we normally only see in movies. They are always on time, they pick it up when we drop something, they give us their jacket when we’re cold, they compliment us, they make sure we feel good, they send us flowers, they are always the first apologizing after an argument, they hold up the door for us, they are educated and behave well, they are loving and attentive…Oh boy, I guarentee you: That’s the dream of all women on this planet.
Rule No. 2 – Be creative.
Guys are like TV shows. If we don’t get entertained enough, we just switch the programm. Yes, we need some times for ourselves but if we like a guy, we want to share our life with him. However, our time is precious and we hate spending friday night on a boring date. There are plenty of possibilities out there, aren’t there? Why can’t you guys just be a little creative instead of taking us to the movies with dinner afterwards for the 10th time? Just one hint out of hundreds: We love walks in the park in winter.
Rule No. 3 – Don’t show off.
Big time. Either we like you from the start or we don’t. Why do guys always think they have to prove how strong, smart, attractive, fit, talented (the list goes on!) they are? We know already. And if we don’t – we are just not into you. And that’s it.
Rule No. 4 – Make us laugh.
Big time again. We don’t want these boring guys who don’t get a joke even if it’s standing right in front of them. Everyone has bad days but we just need guys who make us laugh. Either to make us feel better or to make us feel even better. Either way, a boyfriend with great humor is like the brandnew Dolce&Gabbana purse: Hard to get but once we have it, we’ll never let it go.
Rule No. 5 – Chase us.
Some so-called experts say that these days, a guy doesn’t have to do the first step. They say boys like it if we are being a little more agressive with our flirting. But that’s just not how we ladies like it. We like being chased by a guy, we feel special and just wonderful, especially if we like that dude. Most of us are still raised with the old-school style, so we are just waiting for the guy to do the first step. So guys – go get that chick!
Rule No. 6 – Do sports.
And I don’t mean you gotta look like Arnold Schwarzenegger. But it’s just not very attractive if the only sixpack you got is six bottles of beer. Exercise is important for a healthy lifestyle and being healthy and fit is really important to us ladies. So go running, swimming, hiking, there are plenty of possibilities. Just be fit.
Rule No. 7 – Be nice to our friends.
That my friend is just very important. To get this straight: If we had to choose between our boyfriend and our girlfriends, we would always choose our girlfriends. Men come and go. Girlfriends stay. Sometimes a life time. So think twice how you act around them.
Rule No. 8 – Listen to us.
That’s another rare but extremely popular trait. We need a guy who understands us. Our dreams, hopes, fears…sometimes the best you can do is bring us a big cup of hot chocolate, sit down next to us, and just listen. No interrupting – and no clawing at the remote control.
Rule No. 9 – Tell us what we want to hear.
We rarely do things in front of guys without thinking or a meaning behind it. If we take a guy to our dancing class, we want to be admired how well we do our dancing. If we show him new dress we bought (with a possibility we bought it because we thought he might like it), we want to hear how beautiful we look in it. And to be honest, we just do, don’t we? (;
Rule No. 10 – Don’t act immature.
We had to deal with guys with minds of 5-year-olds already. Once in a lifetime is enough, we don’t need to do that again. So show us that you are enthusiastic about something a little more mature than a digger. Thank you, we really do appreciate it.
