I don’t know if I’m noticing because of my age, or if there really is an abundance of these “What men want” “what women want” articles. After scouring the internet for the most common themes here are a few points from both sides:
1. Women like their men to buy them presents just because.
2. Men lie to you to make you feel better about yourself. “Does this outfit look okay?” ”Yeah poop, it’s lovely”
3. Women like hearing sweet messages whispered to them when they least expect it, “Oh you, I just adore you.”
4. A man wants a woman who is playful (such as playing sports and what-not)and super sarcastic.
5. Women don’t like it when men complain.
This is all bullshit.
My sex doesn’t have anything to do with how I respond to this. My ability to empathize and use reasoning do. In short, I’m a human before I’m a vagina.
A. I make my own money, if I want something I already have it. If I don’t, it’s because I couldn’t swing the Benz payment. If you go and get it for me then I feel obligated to get you something in return, which is pretty shitty of you because I’m already short on funds, way to be an asshole.
B. The only time I will ever ask if my outfit is okay is if I don’t know the dress code. I don’t give a shit about your attire, if you want to dress like Lloyd Christmas go right ahead. I didn’t consult you when I bought the clothes, obviously I already like them, your opinion doesn’t matter. BUT, if something is glaringly obvious, you’re supposed to be my friend, “Hey, you have something in your teeth” is greatly appreciated.
C. I can’t understand hot breath and hisses. I fucking hate it when somebody whispers to me. I have to say “What” or “huh” about five times before I just start pretending I know what you said. Don’t do it.
D. I find it pretty hard to believe everybody likes playing sports and dating a person who is either a huge asshole or just joking all the time.
E. I LOVE it when the person I’m dating complains about something. Depending on how you do it, bitching can be a real bonding experience. Nobody wants to date a person who is thrilled with everything. “I fucking love the Kardashinanagins!” No, you don’t. Everybody hates them. Talk about how you secretly watch, because you loathe them so much you can’t keep your eyes off. That’s a god damned conversation right there.
These are just my thoughts on issues, and I am still single. So…
Maybe I should start playing tennis with my gear that somebody else paid for, while calling everybody a bitch, with my boyfriend whispering sweet nothings I can’t hear until he speaks up to praise my bad behavior, “My my, I just love the way you berate all my friends. No complaints coming from this guy.”
