2. Men take things literally. If you say don't buy me a present, to us that doesn't mean buy you a present. If you say you don't care (even if you do) it means you don't care to us. Say what you mean for the love of god.
Sorry, ain't gonna happen, women aren't wired that way. That's one you guys are just going to have to live with.
3. Men need more alone time than women or we go clinically insane. For some it's a trip to the garage to work on the truck / car. For others it's a good video game or sports match. Don't think this means we don't like being around you. Many times some of us need a few hours by ourselves. Don't worry your pretty little head you will see him again!
Then just say something like, "I need to clear my head for a bit. Would you like me to pick something up for you on the way home?" Women get that, and it kills at least 5 birds with one stone, and a guaranteed way to keep us from hasseling guys about it.
Your # 5 is what your checking other women is to us. There has to be a compromise there.
6. Men don't like when women make everything about them all the time. They like to be included in things and feel emasculated otherwise. (for another definition of emasculation please see #5) If he comes home and starts talking about how *snip* his day was, don't chime in and one up him. We hate that. This is one time a man will think you don't give a (snip).
We generally take that as an invention to do so, but I can see your point on that one.
17. Some men like to wrestle around with you. They really don't mean to hurt you, they probably didn't realize they where pushing or pulling too hard. Let them know but please don't get mad for it. You where having fun before it happened.
What happens is we start to feel like maybe the guy doesn't think we are being feminine enough, so we have to show that we are girly and dainty. Its not really about getting hurt.
#22 We can respect that as long as you respect that clothes and shoes (not the shoes for me but for many women it is) are the same for us.
