What Men STILL Think About Us (UGH)
Admit it, ladies. You often love the fact that you are about as mysterious to us as the Loch Ness Monster. Mystery, however, is a double-edged sword.
While it can be fun watching us flub and flounder trying to figure you out (like when we want to please you), there are still some not-so-great stereotypes floating around about the fairer sex.
Are they true? You tell me…
1. The Greener the Green-Eyed Monster the Better
I didn’t want to believe this one, but after having a couple of women come down on me about it, I’m inclined to join the ranks of the believers. Apparently, women really get bothered when their man doesn’t get jealous. I was told in no uncertain terms by one young lady, “If I was going out for a night on the town with girlfriends, looking all hot, I’d be a bit annoyed if my guy wasn’t a little jealous.”
This was a shock to me, since I regard jealousy as an almost useless emotion. But clearly, I was mistaken in my attempt to engage in a debate with her as her two friends chimed in with a well-timed, “Me, too!” and an emphatic, “Exactly!”
They went on to say that they secretly enjoyed the thought of their man feeling those pangs of jealousy when another guy not-so-slyly checks her out.
Wow. Who knew? I’m now a believer.
2. Bad Boys Are #1
Sure, women say they want nice guys. Women don’t want nice guys. For as far back as any guy can remember, the guy who worked hardest at being an a-hole was the guy who had a constant rotation of delightful women. The “Bad Boy” had all types of women. The nice girls, the not-so-nice girls, the nerdy girls, the sorority girls, the professional women, the shy women – this guy manages to get them all! And even when ladies realize that this guy is kind of a jerk, they STILL stick it out with him in hopes of “changing him.” Does the nice guy stand a chance? Yes, he does. Eventually after “Bad Boy” has drained the trust out of every women he encounters, THOSE women finally settle for the nice guy.( GalTime question: Does age matter in this one? )
