How to treat a girl
As an older sister, I felt compelled a few years ago, once my little brother hit puberty, to offer some words of advice to him about girls.
I had figured out some things that some boys just don't get about girls, and, as my brother isn't always the most perceptive of people, I figured I might try to prevent any awkward situations with girls for my little bro.
If these sound like they were written in early high school, they were. I don't claim to be an expert in relationships, but I know my brother better than anyone, and I know how girls work, and I know that my brother is like a lot of boys in the world.
Many times, boys (and men) will complain that they don't know what women want... so here are some tips to give you a good start.
Do's and Don'ts of Girls
·Don't be an asshole. Which may be hard for you. Haha.
· Don't over-flirt; teasing too much or playing hard-to-get messes with her mind. And no, it's not funny, you sicko.
· Don't pick up the girl late.
· Don't pick up the girl too early. Half an hour is too early! Ten minutes is good.
· Don't talk about other girls in her presence!
· Don't make the girl call you! It's no fun and it makes it feel like you're not interested in her.
· Don't yawn or look at your watch. Ouch. I mean, it sounds like an obvious "No", but it happens QUITE a bit.
· Don't try too hard; it's like you're trying to be someone else and you're taking her for a stoop.
· Don't let her do ALL the talking, even though we know you're the more quiet guy.
· Don't put her over your friends all the time, because then you seem obsessive.
· Don't have nothing planned, unless if you're just hanging out. Be full of ideas or else you seem like you are identity-less.
· Don't be too pushy or arrogant; that is such a turn-off.
· Don't be too touchy-feely that you can't take your hands off her; it's cute to hold hands once in a while, but it's kind of creepy if you're attached to the hip.
· Don't get anything too expensive, because in your teen years, relationships aren't worth all that money.
· Don't pick anything really serious or deeply personal to start out a conversation or to get to know her, because we all know how badly it can turn out.
· Don't be too forward! Although girls love it when guys make the first move, being too bold can freak a girl out!
· Pick up the girl from her house
· Be courteous and have manners (redundant for a purpose): open car doors, pull out chairs, etc.
· Pay for her things when you take her out! Unless if she persistently refuses financial aid.
· Give her a compliment every once in a while... but only if you mean it, of course.
· Call her! It makes her feel special.
· Make conversation; don't be an inanimate blob and just sit there.
· Listen to what she's saying! Don't be like, "What" after she's told you her life story, which she'll do at some point.
· Be considerate to her when you're around your friends; it'll impress her that you can still be cool when you're with guys.
· Put some effort into your wardrobe.
· Give her random things, even if they're little; burn her a CD, find something cheap and make some connection to her with it
· Be spontaneous! Call her at an usual time, tell her what you like about her out of the blue. You're good at being random, I know.
· Laugh at things she's saying if she's funny. I mean, if she's really not funny, then she'll get the hint, but hearing laughter is good for a girl.
· Tell her she looks good! But not if she looks like crap or she might not believe you. Well, sometimes; it takes strategy...
· If you're at a dance, dance, fool! You know what I mean; even if you're bad, a girl will dig it if you're on the floor. Bust out the worm!
· Get in good with the family, even if it's just being friends. Trust can't hurt. Talk to the parents, play with younger sibs, etc.
· Try to say what you think a girl wants to hear. Don't make it a big lie, but if you can get away with it, be her hero. Thus, the "Does this make me look fat?" question.
· Practice unhooking a bra beforehand. Just kidding.
· BE YOURSELF! *corny* Because you have such a good sense of humor that shouldn't go to waste.
SPECIAL SECTION: Kissing 101
· You can kiss on a first date, but no make-out sessions! That just indicates a fling/short relationship, nothing really meaningful. Unless if that's what you want. A second date is good for making out.
· Don't be a wet kisser!
· Don't lick her teeth or anything weird like that. Unless if she's that type of girl.
· Don't attack her face!
· Don't kiss her if you have eaten anything that would smell bad to her. Nothing is worse than bad breath.
