BULLETIN: Guys, Women Hate These Six Things As Valentine's Day Gifts

THIS GUY IS ON THE LOOSE!

When this little guy with his bow and arrow

is on the hunt for victims, you can look out. And I'm talking to all the guys in our readership. Something mysterious happens to us guys before Valentine's Day. We go near-insane for a moment. Start acting a fool. Especially when choosing gifts for our 'honey's.' To some girls, us acting a fool may be a bit romantic. But face it, girls. There are some gifts we give you that thanks to our inability to think clearly. And out of sheer panic. We give you gifts that you really. Deep down inside. Hate.

Here are six of those dreaded gifts that I'm warning all guys to avoid giving AT ALL COSTS.

Anger for no reason

Guys, be smart. Valetine's Day is a special day for 'her.' A day that you need to show her just how much you love. Appreciate. And need her in your life. Do not be a jackass and show your angry side on this day. Well, on any day. Unless it's a case of have-to. Do not get angry at every little detail. Or the things your girlfriend or wife does that irritates you. Be cool. Stay friendly. Along with the candy and red roses, you being friendly and personable will be a wonderful way to say "I love you," to her on Valentine's Day.

Selfishness: Another disaster to avoid

take a good look at who's sleeping on the outside of this comfy tent. It's not the guy. That's for sure. It's his girlfriend or wife. What jerk would do this to the love of his life? A selfish jerk. That's who, and believe me, I've met and been around plenty of selfish jerks who actually think that God gave them their female companions to serve them as in being their maid. What idiotic logic. Guys, if camping is on your agenda for Valentine's Day, please be courteous. And giving. Do not bring shame upon the word 'male,' and make your girlfriend or wife sleep outside of the tent.

Laziness says to your girl, "I don't care about you."

putting this photo on my hub irritated me to no end. Just look at this lazy bum with the cigarette acting macho making his girlfriend or wife haul this heavy load. I don't know where this photo was taken, but whatever country condones this sorry treatment for females, is lower than low, in my opinion. Certainly no guy in this readership would stoop so low as to show your girlfriend or wife your lazy side--especially on Valentine's Day. Give your female companion a picnic. A diamond bracelet. A pet cat. But do not be lazy on Valentine's Day. It's her day. Do whatever she needs for you to do without being lazy. That is the smart thing to do.

Doubt planted in her mind equals future trouble.

the pretty girl to your right has the look of doubt on her face. Why? You can guess without having a college degree. Her boyfriend or husband told her some 'fish tale' about having to work late on a 'special project,' at the office and it was uncanny. Suspicious. How he chose Valetine's Day to work instead of being with his pretty girlfriend or wife. While he was talking to her on the phone, she heard in the background some of his buddies. Some giggling by some hot chicks. And this instantly made her doubt his word. From now on. Would you love for everything you say to your wife or girlfriend to be scrutinized? Well just be honest. Girls do not love to doubt you. Said another way, too much doubt and the will find reasons to leave you.

You drunk. What a Valentine's Day gift.

this chap is not a problem drinker. Nor is he an alcoholic. Funny how he looks like both. No, he is what we, in the "Valentine Gift Game," call a "power partier." He would drink all day if he could. And laugh. Tear up the bar with his party buds. But he has a gorgeous girlfriend he has been dating for three months. Until this incident, she hasn't seen his drink until he passes out. Or "his lights going out." She knew that he drank, but not an entire keg at a time. Guys, if you want to keep your gorgeous girlfriend or wife, it's simple. Keep the boozing and 'power partying' to a minimum. Dance with her. Hold her close. Whisper the things in her dainty ears she loves to hear. And the best thing. To be able to REMEMBER Valentine's Day the next day.

Pretty girl all alone. On Valentine's Day.

I saved the worst for last. Look at this pretty girl laying on the beach reading a book. To be cliche, what's wrong with this photo? Well, she is all alone. That's what. Oh she has a boyfriend. Maybe a husband. But on this particular Valentine's Day, their first together,which is supposed to be very special, he chose to jet ski with some drinking buddies a few miles down the beach leaving this pretty girl alone. Yes, alone. She never asks much of him. She loves him more than her own life. She adores his gelled-up hair. Even his messy van. And really thrills at keeping company with him. She had so many plans for this Valentine's Day, but she was left all alone. I ask you guys, "What red-blooded male, in his right mind, would treat such a hot girl like this?" I hope you don't do this to your hot girlfriend or wife on Valentine's Day 2012. Or guess what? You could find yourself all alone. One day soon.

Valentine's Day the way it should be . . .

"Surprise! Happy Valentine's Day!" The lucky man says to his wife, a brunette beauty. An expensive dinner. Wine. Red roses. The works. This guy knows exactly how to make his wife's Valentine's Day a memorable event.

"This one will do," says this happy guy with the pretty girl, who happens to be his girlfriend. She is happy because him loving a mattress is a sign that he has marriage on his mind.

VALENTINE'S DAY

IS APPROACHING

guys. To give you a 'heads-up,' in 2012, I thought I would just tell you in this hub that there are SIX THINGS YOU MUST NEVER GIVE YOUR GIRLFRIEND OR WIFE as a Valentine's Day gift. And when I say 'never,' I mean never.

Do not misunderstand. I am not here to tell you your business. Or tell you what you can or cannot do. But had you rather have a girlfriend or wife smile. Giggle. Praise you for the gifts you gave her or tear your head off when you foolishly give her one of the things I talk about in this hub?

You are a smart guy. Use your intelligence. Avoid the six things in this hub.

Thank you,

Kenneth Avery

Great guy advice, lol. Although the little dinner pic made me think, "Gee, I hope she's keeping track of where she's going with that knife!" (else it might be his last!)

Voted up, awesome, and interesting :) Thanks for the laugh.

A fun hub! Love reading our hubs, Kenneth:)

My husband and I veto Valentine's Day altogether. We decided that neither of us should feel compelled to do something just because it's a hallmark holiday...so instead little surprises and kind things for each other throughout the year has been our alternative.

Hello, Sunnie,

that is fine. Ive been so far behind that I may never catch up. The Accelerated Fibromyalgia and Neurothopy are really kicking me down, but Im fighting as hard as I can. And dear Sunnie, I see why you have the name, Sunnie...and this may be corny, but its from my heart, you make even my darkest day brighter just by your being on HubPages and YES, when you comment on my hubs. I Hope you have the BEST day ever.

My guy isn't a "gifter" for much of any "day" but instead all during the year when he sees something he thinks I'll like he buys it and gifts it right then. Makes a lot of Christmas, Valentine, birthday days all year long and I love it. Great and informative Hub, Kenneth. Voted up. Best, Sis

ahhh what great advice from a guy on how to keep a woman happy. That photo of the guy sleeping inside the tent while the girl is outside really cracked me up-- definitely ALL he's going to get in bed is sleep if he keeps up that behavior. Just wanted to add that in my experience, men totally under-estimate the power of flowers with women. Women don't need diamonds or expensive vacations. One perfect rose from the right guy is better than emerald earrings from the wrong one. Voting this one up :-)


kenneth avery profile image

kenneth avery 4 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama Author

May I say to you, robie2, "I love you for that comment." "I used to give loads of roses to the girls I wanted to date, but they only wanted the roses." That might be a good line from a romantic book or stage production. I agree with the one perfect rose from the right guy line too. I am so appreciative of YOU, robie2, and your insight to what I am really saying in my hubs.

Take care and Have a Great Day,

Your Friend,

Kenneth (who can only give Cyber Roses, due to the economic state that my wallet is in).

Hello, Dear quildon! Thank you so much for your sweet comment and votes that I cherish. I mean it. All of my followers are special. You included. I hope I can always make YOU and all of my followers KNOW that you are all appreciated and not taken for granted.

God bless you!

Hi Kenneth! Awesome Hub. Very True... Women expect Men to pamper them and make them feel special especially on a Valentines Day. Any gestures as you mentioned I would kick my Guy out any Day, even if it is not a Valentines Day. When I give 100% to my relationship I expect the same back too.


kenneth avery profile image

kenneth avery 4 years ago from Hamilton, Alabama Author

Hi, Dear Anamika, thank you for your sweet comments. And thank you for agreeing with my thinking on how women should be treated...those who DO love to have pampering, and we all know that there are some women who hate pampering. And men should know whom to pamper and whom to not pamper. Thanks again and visit with me anytime.

Hi Kenneth,

If I had a special someone, I would show him this hub. I know Valentine's is more for the woman but I think it should be for the man too. Voted up up and away!

Dear Sueswan . . ."Thank you, DEAR friend, for your sweet comment. Cupid may be scoping-in a special someone for YOU right now. You never know about this little guy with wings and bow and arrow."

Thanks for your votes.

Sincerely, Kenneth

Dear Kenneth

Cupid scoping someone special would be nice. Don't know if I can or should trust a little guy with wings and bow and arrow. ;-)

Enjoy your day my friend.

Dear Susan,

Well, he can be pretty accurate. Think about it. Look at Brad and Angelina. They are still together. Might make a gooc case-study hub: Cupid's Success Rate. But not for me. I have three hubs in the research stage and Im taking it easy today.

Thanks Susan for all of your sweet comments and DO NOT overdo at work.

Sincerely, Kenneth
