Day Late and $1 Short- That’s That S*** We DO Like!
I love to see people flourish. I really do. I took it upon myself to poll some friends about things that women do that we (men) like. If you have a man that’s cool, you can add these things to your arsenal if you haven’t already done so. Single ladies need to use this list for when that time comes and some things can be used in the courting process. Men get bored easily, and since I want to minimize the amount of DMs/Text/Calls from my friends with bad luck with men, I decided to compose 10 items that should assist you in that department. Read, study and execute.
Display some form of wittiness
We are not asking you to be witty all the time, just show some signs of wittiness to let us know that you have a dope sense of humor. I have made some superficial follows on twitter solely based off of how her picture looked and this was a HUGE mistake. Some women were blessed with thirst-worthy appearance and #dassit. I applaud you for using this to your advantage. But this is where Instagram comes into play for you all. The homie @TheRockWell said, “Instagram is the mecca for women who should be seen and not heard,” and I couldn’t agree more.
Your response to the “thirst”.
Loyalty. Even the most secure man can have his moments of questioning. It’s rough out here for a man in a relationship and his girl is on Instagram. Real life creeps come out. “See Instagram is worse than any other social network, simply because it’s ONLY pictures.” – @RDizzle7. This man is correct. I’ve witnessed comments range from “You are so beautiful”, a cat straight out post his number-HIS PHONE NUMBER- to “Damn I want to eat that ******”. Home of the creeps. That alone will drive a boyfriend/boo insane. I won’t put all the blame on the women, because I’ve seen all the variety of thirst on a non-scantly clad picture, which is in fact sad. It’s best just to say nothing and not entertain the comments. Because IF you don’t post a universal thank you and tell certain people, you going to get the “HOW YOU KNOW THIS DUDE” talk with this face:
Accept his shortcomings.
When WE agree to take it to the next level, you are signing up for this “trip”; you’re not a victim, you’re a volunteer. So if you are going to dwell in the past over how many people he has slept with, or his communication skills make this known prior to escalating the relationship. Certain things, such as communication, are imperative to a solid relationship. That’s something well worth the argument, but don’t try to change a man for YOUR personal liking and not for the GREATER GOOD of the relationship. When I was in my EMO state of mind, worried about dating again, someone said “You told me everything that you were/are frustrated with, but I think that’s what makes you who YOU are.” She doesn’t know, but that was the best piece of advice that I have gotten in 2012. *cues Kanye West – Everything I Am*
Eye Contact in Public
This is my personal favorite. Women are not usually the predator when it comes to showing interest in a guy. Nothing strokes my ego more than getting chose. Stop light, girl with the two-toned weave at the drive-thru, or the gym. I LIKE GETTING CHOSE! When a women holds eye contact for exactly 3 seconds, that’s a woman that knows exactly what she wants. Some men come across this predatorily act and get scared because of the aggressiveness. Not I. You have to master the 3 seconds though. Anything more is just plain creepy.
Smell sweeter than a plate of yams, with extra syrup.
If you don’t have a distinctive smell right now, you need to get one. This is an extremely underrated feature that ALL women should have. My favorite smell of ALL time on a woman is “Winter Candy Apple” from Bath & Body Works. This girl wore it my junior year in high school, art class, 2ndsemester 2004. How do I remember all this?! Because that’s how good she smelled and that scent is something serious! Find you a dope lotion/perfume concoction and stick with it.
Get in that kitchen
We are not asking you to be Paula Deen out here, just be ABLE to prepare a solid meal. If you don’t like cooking at all, and that’s one of the prerequisites to get to his heart, this is a case where effort is rewarded and not overlooked. Show him that you are taking interest in what he likes in woman. After all, we ARE looking for wife qualities and by you displaying interest in something that you have no interest in doing says a lot. If you can’t cook, please don’t do your trial meal on a hungry man. If you make me wait ALL day to eat and your meal is WEAK, I might not communicate with you for at least 2 days. Don’t play with me, girl.
Chillin in our balling shorts
Don’t get it twisted, we love seeing you prance around in those little shorts that you should have given up years ago, but we also like to see you in our basketball shorts. It’s something about you lounging around in them big a** shorts with a small tee. You all take the BEST shorts too. Won’t touch those weak a** FinishLine shorts that we own. Your eyes seem to be on the fresh Jordan shorts that happen to be one of our favorite pairs. I had a debate on twitter about women wearing shorts from an ex, and I originally thought “Hell No”, but after a few more responses, I realized that they are only shorts and over-looking that will save from wasting energy on her past. Keep wearing them shorts girl, because they are going to end up on the flo…nah I’m working on my image.
Stroke the Ego
Men are not compliment driven like women. It’s not even close, but we do like when our egos are stroked. If he has been working out, tell him that you notice his shirts are fitting tighter. Cats LOVE compliments about their physique. If you tell him his shirts are fitting a little snugger after two days of working out, he is already thinking about his progress after about 2 months. Then you just created a monster. Him hitting the weights will work in your favor as well when he tries that move Ving Rhames had Jody mama in from “Baby Boy.” I’m chilling, though.
Look good for your #him when y’all step out
This one pissed me off to the max. I cannot stand to see women post pictures going out with their girls and look immaculate, but when I see pictures of them with their #him they don’t look as good. Who are you trying to impress boo? Them or #him? Why don’t you put forth the same effort when you are going out with the only person you claim you are trying to impress? You may not have noticed it, but I see this on my Instagram on a weekly basis and it has happened to me before. Look your best for #him. Few things are greater than seeing your girl after she is getting dressed and you not wanting to go anywhere because she is looking so good. Take care of home ladies.
Randomly burst out singing, dancing, twerking or all three. Men LOVE to be able to come in contact with the silly side of a woman. We are not getting any younger and it’s always dope to be able to take a shot from that fountain of youth. Nobody likes the uptight chick that claims you “play too much” when you are just trying to lighten her mood and put a smile on her face. We appreciate that woman that we can engage in silly activities with and enjoy random moments. Hit me up if you enjoy fist pumping to “We Found Love” by Rihanna with the windows down and disrespectful levels. I’m dead serious.
I gave you the blueprint ladies, now follow it. Do you have questions, concerns, or cuss words? Tell me things.
