Dear Girls,

  We love our boys.  They are sweet and wonderful and much better than we deserve.  But they’re stupid also.  Mostly ’cause they just never got the rulebook, the one that explains the silly things that girls want out of a relationship.  They mean well, but they just don’t understand.

  So.  In the last couple of days I’ve had a few conversations which have pointed out a couple of these to me.  I’d like to ask you for yours.  Then I’ll pick my favorites and post them all together in a journal entry, as sort of a cheat sheet for guys.

Thanks!

Marie

    This is more for long term relationships such as engaged (or practically engaged), married, ect…. I think it took about a year of living with Nathan to make him pick up on this one (and by “pick up on it” I of course mean I got drunk and explained very loudly and clearly what I meant lol).
    Just because you’ve “caught” us don’t act like you can’t lose us. Those little things that were important in the beginning of a relationship (think flowers just because, small touches in public that no one notices but us two, a kiss when you get home from work, cuddling ect…) are still VERY important. Yes we don’t need to hang all over each other all the time but still make sure you remind us that you care or we just might think you that you don’t.

    Embrace and accept the mood swings. We’ll both live longer.

    I’ve told you this one already but:
    Our notion of femininity lies somewhere between The Vagina Monologues and Beauty and the Beast, so good luck with that. Oh yeah and where we are in that spectrum changes.

    Agreed.
