10 Things guys wish girls knew
There are so many things written about why guys don’t understand girls, but what about the reverse this? What don’t girls get about guys? How to understand men? To overcome this shortfall, we asked one of our male colleagues to let you in on the secrets of what guys wish girls knew and here are his heartfelt top 10:
1. We are not all the same!
Guys have no feelings, guys are all only after one thing. Not true ladies! We’re all very different and most of us are sensitive little soles, under that hard exterior that life teaches us we should have.
2. We need a chill out time
Guys need a bit of chill out time when they get home. OK, so you’ve got a lot to get off your chest, but just give him an hour or so when he gets in first. Let him mellow a bit before you tell him that you dented the car, again.
3. I haven’t done anything wrong!
What are other things guys wish girls knew? Well, guys wish that girls knew how to trust. Telling your devoted and trustworthy man, over and over again, that he’s been up to something, when he hasn’t, will eventually only drive him to do it! A man can have a friend who also happens to be female without it being anything more than a friendship.
4. That time of the month…
Men are not very good at understanding women’s mood swings, so when that time comes that you feel like a snarling pit bull terrier, don’t be surprised if he looks hurt when you snap at him. Men like stability and an even keel, the ups and downs of a lady’s mood will never make any sense to him.
5. We love you the way you are
Another thing guys wish girls knew: they love you even with no makeup on. Girls, you don’t need to ply on the makeup every day. Sure, it looks nice when you go out and guys appreciate the effort, but, they really do love you for who you are and not just for how you look.
6. Please, say what you really mean
One of the important things guys wish girls knew is that they aren’t mind readers. Guys aren’t very good at guessing, and reading what you think in your eyes is not really their thing. So, ladies, if you have something to say, make sure to clearly express it, just say it. Guys like it straight to the point and they have yet to develop the levels of telepathic powers that women seemed to have evolved.
7. Guys are just not as observant as girls
If you changed your eyebrows shape, you’ve done your hair slightly different, got a new dress or painted your nails a different colour, please, don’t be upset if he doesn’t notice. It doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love you; men just aren’t as good at noticing things like that.
8. If you really loved me, you’d…
Nothing is guaranteed to annoy a man more, than unwarranted emotional blackmail. Using the old ‘you don’t care about me’ ploy, except when it’s valid, will get you nowhere. Guys need to be in the mood for affection and remember, if a guy has something else on his mind, it’s a well-known fact that they can’t multi-task!
9. Guys don’t like girls who smoke
One of the important things guys wish girls knew is that they don’t like when girls smoke. This is a well known fact, according to surveys, most men don’t like women who smoke. So, ladies, quitting smoking can not only improve your skin tone and make your teeth whiter, but also can be beneficial for your love life. 😉
10. Don’t tell us all about your ex
Guys don’t want to know all the details about your past relationships. They don’t want to hear comparisons with your ex-boyfriends. Just skip these topics altogether. Make him feel that he is the one and the only.
