Dear Men (yes, you),
I know you probably have been in a situation where you liked a girl, were dating a girl or were even engaged to someone and you followed her instructions to not do something and then were questioned for why you didn’t do that specific thing she told you not to do. Confusing right? Well, I am here to crack the “what women want” code for you on a couple things – what we say, and what we mean.
“I don’t like flowers.”
This is a classic. First off, I will admit I say this all the time. All of my friends say this all the time. However, there is nothing more sweet and simplistic than sending a girl flowers to her office or bringing them to her door. Every girl loves flowers no matter what she says.
“You don’t have to text me all the time”
Men, actually listen to this one. However, a sweet good morning/ good night text and maybe a couple during the day to see how her day is going does not hurt. Quite frankly, it’ll probably make her smile.
BUT DO NOT OVERLOAD. No one enjoys having their phone buzz every two seconds.
“You don’t have to buy me something for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Birthday or anniversary”
We don’t actually hate having to buy you presents or you having to get us something. Sometimes the pressure surrounding the holidays just wigs us out and we would rather a heartfelt present from you and spending time with you instead of trying to compete with the basic expectations of a Hallmark holiday.
“I don’t care where we go to eat”
Honestly sometimes we really have no idea what we want for food, but other times we will say no to everything you pick. I don’t really know how to tell you to win that one.
Ladies – do you agree? Gentlemen- I hope this helps! Let me know any other questions I can answer.
