1. Guys Get Nervous Too

When you go on a first date with a man, you’re naturally nervous. You’re terrified in case you smudge your makeup on your way to meet him, scared in case the wind knocks your hair out of whack, and anxious in case you accidentally spill your Processo ALL OVER HIM.

Guys are nervous too, though. Sure, they’re supposed to be all manly, and surethey take the lead and choose where to go, and they even pick up the bill with an assuredness that seems to be out of this world. But underneath it all, they’re just as terrified as you are and every time they take a sip of their beer they fret that they’re about to spill it all over you.

2. Guys Love Compliments

Yes, everyone does, even guys. A good compliment said in the right time can be a real game changer. Guys actually crave compliments, and it’s not because they are attention seeking or needy, it’s because they just hardly ever get any. Of course, guys prefer different types of compliments than we, ladies, do, and things like: ‘Oh, you look pretty gorgeous today!’ will only make a guy feel awkward; but you can’t go amiss when you compliment his skills, talents, manly behavior or strength.

3. Guys Don’t Actually Want A Threesome

Yes, many guys will tell you that their ultimate fantasy is a threesome, with some of the more creepier ones saying they want a fivesome. They want you and some random woman you pick up on a night out, all together in one bed. Shoulders, elbows, and 6 knees; they want it all!

The truth, though, is that it really is just a fantasy. Guys love their women and they don’t want anything to mess up their relationship, and especially not a threesome. See, whilst it may seem enjoyable for him to be cavorting with another women, he’s actually more worried that you seem to be enjoying it. Poor guy!

4. He Thinks You Are Actually Fine When You Say You’re Fine

“Hey, you okay? I know we had a bit of an argument last night. I just wanted to text to see if you were okay and whether I should come round later. I love you. I really do, I mean it.”

“I’m fine.”

“Cool!! Does that mean I can go out for some beers with the guys tonight?”

After 40,000 years of evolution, guys still haven’t realised that “I’m fine” means “I’M SO ANGRY AT YOU!”

Apparently it’s a fault in their brain mechanism that only a super scientist could ever correct. But because such a correction would cost $56 billion, it’s never going to happen. Oh, guys.

5. He Can Actually Cook

Sure, he can cook. He can cook some excellent dishes, and can even make a buff soufflé.

He won’t tell you, of course. After all, he doesn’t want to get roped into cooking your meals for you. Instead, he wants you to wait on him hand and foot. He’ll even set fire to a piece of toast just to prove that he’s rubbish in the kitchen.

“I thought toast was supposed to be set on fire.”
