To read through guys’ answers to girls’ questions, go here.
We all need a little help understanding the opposite sex. It all started in the garden (now we here) when the first man and woman ever created looked at each other and thought “I like you, but what is going on?” Since then we’ve been trying to figure it out.
Thankfully, we are good friends here at Side Hugs and do everything we can to bridge the gap between Adam and Eve.
One guy asking questions sorted himself into the “especially confused” category of guys. I’d like to dedicate this blog to all of the “especially confused” guys out there.
What is a good first date?
“A good first date is a guy finding a good environment to do two things: get to know a girl and make her feel honored/cared for. If a guy takes me anywhere with those two things in mind, I’m in!”
Would a girl say yes to a date even if they knew nothing will come of it?
“Yes, I’ve been guilty of this! I think this happens for two reasons:
1.) The girl just wants the attention and to simply go on a date.
2.) She is afraid to say no (this is me).”
What’s the best way for a guy to approach a girl he likes—should he be more straightforward about his intentions right off the bat? Or more subtle?
This perfectly sums it up:
“If you like her, tell her.”
What is the number one thing I should be picking up on to know if a girl is interested?
“She keeps conversations going once you start them. If it seems like she’s just ‘conveniently’ always in the same places as you.”
“Pay attention how/if she engages you in conversation. Is she comfortable with eye contact? Is she quick to ask you questions and laugh at your jokes, no matter how lame they are? Does she *linger* around you? Pay attention to lingering. That’s important. (Pro tip: Touch may not be a good sign. If she’s TOO comfortable with you, you may already be in the friend zone. Sorry buddy).”
But we really don’t know:
“I can’t even speak for myself on this topic, let alone girls everywhere! Sorry, Charlie, good luck to ya.”
What are the most attractive personality characteristics in a guy?
“Hard-work, humor, someone willing to have REAL conversation. Studs with these things and a sweet smile and love for Jesus and people make me MELT.”
Why do a lot of girls start out seeming nice but are actually crazy?
“LOL. We are complicated humans and it could be one of two things:
1.) The girl hasn’t matured enough/isn’t actually in a place to date yet.
2.) She’s not actually crazy, she just has feelings and you weren’t the right person to appreciate those feelings.”
Why do girls go to the bathroom in pairs?
“I think that as a girl, I’ve been conditioned to believe that going places alone is unsafe. “What if I go running and get abducted?” “What if someone tries to murder me in the parking lot?” So, why not travel in a pack?”
Or Harry Potter?
“Are you a HP fan? The famous trio are in the bathroom for some privacy when Hermione reveals Moaning Myrtle’s existence. That’s what happens when girls go to the bathroom in pairs. We go for privacy and to reveal secrets. We talk about the good/bad/ugly of the night. Things make more sense talking to your gal pal than when you are consulting the soap dispenser.”
“Why not? Life’s more fun when you travel in pairs. But really, what if I’m going to check my makeup or something and need someone to tell me if I look okay or not?”
Well, there you have it! A small, small glimpse into girl world.
