Ok let’s be honest here.
Women are fantastic, intelligent, magical creatures of light and love. Well, most of us anyway, most of the time. As fabulous and magnificent as we can be, there are times when women say and do the wrongest things – myself included! I’ll be the first to admit that as a woman, I say a lot of things that men probably find absurd. It’s not as if I do it intentionally. I don’t exactly go out of my way to complicate things for the opposite sex. It’s just that our minds are wired differently, in as much as our role in the society is different than the guy’s. It is almost as if women have their own language, a hidden culture of implied complexity and severity, and it’s the job of men to decode us.
Let’s not get into the why of it, as we may never end. It’s a girl thing, k?
At any rate, it certainly wouldn’t hurt for us women to do what we can to help the men in our lives understand us better. God bless ‘dem boys; they stick with us despite our occasional nonsense. Here’s a quick list of some of the ridiculous things that women sometimes say or do.
- “Nothing’s wrong, I am fine!”
OMG this is such a classic line! I am not sure how many times I have said this in my life but seriously guys, take a hint. When we girls repeatedly say that there is nothing wrong, trust me, there is definitely something wrong. Do not ignore us. Let me say that again. DO NOT IGNORE US. Instead, ask us how you can improve our day. Also, be careful when were PMS-ing, because this will definitely lead to a loooong night of tears and bitterness. Best thing to do is to make the conversations short and sweet and just get us some chocolate, or give us a back massage. 😉
- “Do I look fat?”
This is another classic girl question. Most likely, this means, “I’m feeling a little insecure at this moment, so regardless of what you really think, tell me I’m beautiful.” This question is definitely a trap, and it is definitely screaming for attention. In this case, honesty may not always be the policy. Choose the path of least resistance and just give her a compliment. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it will save you a lot of trouble.
- “It’s totally cool if you hang out with your ex”
Ok first of all, if you have someone in your life, this is a big NO! Its just plain unacceptable to hang out with your past lover even if your present girlfriend says it’s ok. We don’t need to spell this out for you boys! Whatever you do, don’t hang out with your ex. God help you if we catch you.
- Go have fun and do whatever you want. Its ok!
Now, this is another trap. When we say this, it really means that you should not go out but instead, just pet us and love us. I repeat, do not go out and have fun.
- I will get ready quickly. It will only take a minute.
I don’t know what the problem is, but women can take forever to do anything. I seriously think men know this. Women do take forever because they put an effort with their make up, dress and accessories. Guys, when this happens, find something that you can do and just appreciate the effort.
I know there are still various statements that we women say and the list can go on and on. But please do not hate me as we can never deny that we have said these phrases at least multiple times in our lives. I know it takes two to tango in a relationship or in a date, but always remember that we do make mistakes and it serves as a learning curve for us.
