Women Always Say Men Are Dogs, Well This is How You Can Treat Us Like One
Guys are fairly and relatively simple beings. I’m not saying that simple is the same as dumb, but I’m not saying that it isn’t either. If you want something from us, want something done, or just want something in general, you need to tell us directly. This way, you can avoid confusion, especially when you’re dealing with one of the two following types of guys:
1. Guy who pretends like he doesn’t understand what you want when you beat around the bush – This guy is either a smartass or a lazy ass.
2. Guy who just really doesn’t understand – This guy is naïve, clueless. Forgive him, for he knows no better.
When you are dealing with one of the two types of guys (which you probably will at least once in your lifetime), you have to be direct. This way, the first guy won’t have an opportunity to pretend like he doesn’t know what you are talking about, and the second guy will stop being a nitwit. Yes, there may be a chance that you get your perfect man who understands all your insinuations, allusions, and roundabout suggestions, but really, don’t waste your breath wishing. Guys are direct beings; if we want something, we will ask for it. If we don’t, we’ll say so. We very much appreciate the same in return. It will take a suave, understanding, and learned gentleman (such as myself) to comprehend your secret signals. So instead of “Does sushi sound good?” (which will warrant a “yes” or “no” answer, but will go no further, unless your man wants some), go with “Baby, do you want sushi? Because I do.” (which will warrant an action – that is, if your man loves you).
I’ve run into situations in the past when my ex-girlfriend would make a nonchalant statement such as, “Ohh, Vietnamese food sounds good”, without telling me that she was actually hungry (Yes, I know, I’m a dumbass.) And then hours later, she would get mad at me that I didn’t feed her 5 hours ago when she made that comment. Instead, if she had said, “Ohh, Vietnamese food sounds good. I’m hungry”, I would have taken her directly to the restaurant. But alternately, she ended up hungry, and it was all my fault. This could be a solution to a lot of small problems that you may be having with your relationship.
