While reading in the May, 2006 issue of Seventeen magazine, I came across the What Freaks Him Out About You article on page 084. I have my own opinions about the issues the 'guys' brought up.
Andrew answers, "it's weird when a girl gets clingy in public and you've only been together for like, a week". That's funny. I happen to like clingy girls. I do not think they are 'marking their territory', but even if they were, I'd love to be marked! :-D
I actually agree with Paul, who mentions group trips. He brings up the bathroom thing, and I don't think any guy will ever understand that. I don't care about the toilet trips, they could be giggling and talking good about me, but the whole hanging out in packs is distressing. I prefer private one-on-one conversations.
I disagree with Devon completely. I think wedding talk is so cool, and you can really learn a lot about a girl when you hear about her wedding fantasies. It also lets me know we are the same track, marriage bound. After all, the whole point of dating is to find a suitable spouse. Your dream wedding? I want to hear all about it.
Ryan has a good point, but I'll take it a little further. Why drink at all? Are you nervous? Bad things happen to girls who drink, so don't do it.
Brandon is correct. If you've got to break up with a guy for me, I don't even want to hear about it. I agree with his assessment that it is a sign she will do the same to me for someone else. Also, I'm not competitive, and I would hate to be resented by some guy whose parade got rained on. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Chuck is absolutely insane. Any girl who is willing to cancel major plans to be with me is totally attractive to me. Old-fashioned girls were willing to give up everything about their lives to be happily married to their man. So, forget about college, your parents, and anything else that may bring us apart, and let's get it on!
Again, the type of girl Sean is talking about is so awesome. She knows what she wants and is willing to get it. If you are interested in me enough to do research, I'll be impressed. Just don't talk to my mom, she thinks I'm blond and took gymnastics. My Dad and sisters know me pretty good though.
James is right. But I'll make you a deal. If you need a hug, just start crying around me. Warning: I may start crying too. I hate to see girls cry, it breaks my heart.
I don't know what JJ is smoking, but it's guys like him who ruin things for others. For the record, if you want to do my dishes or tidy up my room, the jobs yours and I'll compensate you any way you want! These are awesome traits for wifes and mothers. It's what I refer to as the womans touch, and everything I have needs that. ;-) Of course, my dishes are always done and I already keep a clean house. Hmmm. We'll work something out.
I have one more thing to say about that article. What a hottie! Have you seen that sassy chick and the look she is giving us? I'd give anything for a girl like that.
