How true is that quote?!? Now I can’t speak for every single woman out there, but I will go out on a limb and say that it is definitely true that a good majority of we women want our significant others to be able to read our minds. We want them to pick up on all of those words that we don’t come out and say. I realize it is ridiculous of us to have that expectation of our men, but ridiculous or not, it is what we want. “Why”, you men ask? I will try and explain why, but when I do you have to promise not to laugh or make fun of it, even though it will sound absolutely ludicrous to you…ready…no laughing…we want you to read our minds because we feel that if we have to tell you what we want, then it won’t mean as much to us when you give it to us. Example: If we have to tell you we want flowers, then when you buy them for us we will think you only bought them because we asked you to and not because you loved us. Another example: If we have to tell you that we want you to say we look pretty then we will think you are only saying it to us because we asked you to and not because you actually think it. Yet another example: If we have to tell you to buy us a diamond for Christmas then when you buy it for us we will think – we will think “who the freak cares if he only bought me a diamond because I asked for it – it’s a freaking diamond and I will take it!!!!” Okay, that last one was a bad example, but for anything but diamonds, what I am explaining holds true. As women we want you as our man to figure out magically what we are thinking and what we want, and then act on it. I realize it is a totally irrational request, but we are women, and we are totally entitled to have irrational requests because you men already think we are irrational anyway and we certainly wouldn’t want to disappoint you :). Plus remember:
“Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other is the husband!”
All teasing aside, there is some genuine truth to what I am explaining. The smartest thing a man can do for the women he loves, right after buying her diamonds, which is always the #1 thing he can do, is for a man to listen to those subtle hints his woman will drop and then pay attention and act on them. For example, your woman says “Did you see how cute the necklace was that Susy’s husband bought for her?” Interpretation – “Call Susy’s husband and find out where he bought that necklace and go buy it for me! But make it an even nicer one so that Susy will know that my husband loves me more than her husband loves her!”. Another example, your woman says “Babe, you don’t have to buy me anything for Christmas this year. I already have everything I need.” Interpretation – “If you are dense enough to fall for what I just said then you are in some serious trouble mister! Of course you better buy me a gift for Christmas, oh, and make sure it is plenty sparkly!” Yet another example, your woman says as you drive by a fast food restaurant, “Are you hungry babe?” Interpretation – “I am starving and if you know what is good for you, you will pull into that drive through and get me a combo meal. And if you don’t pull in it tells me that you think I am fat. So if you want me to know that you think I am skinny then pull in and make mine a super-sized combo.”
Don’t you see how easy it was to figure out what we really meant from all the subtle clues we drop? It’s a piece of cake. So for all you men out there who want to make your woman happy, I have just given you the secret to making that happen – #1 diamonds. #2 read our minds – the clues are there for you just like those bread crumbs that led Hansel and Gretel through the woods…all you have to do is follow them…Nothing to it! 😉
Last, but not least,
My wife suggested a book for me to read to enhance our relationship.
It’s titled, “Women are from Venus, Men are Wrong.”
And know that even though you are wrong, we still love you, because someone has to love you enough to help change you, and we women are confident that we can…even if it takes a lifetime to make that happen.
