I'm married - obviously not dating or looking to date.
I'm definitely a member of the been there / done that club AND believe it or not, I still get hit on. (Yeah, baby - she's still got it!)
Guys, this is for YOU...
At this point in my life, I've figured out that you man folk don't get us women AT ALL.
I'm sure you've all realized that men & women do not think at all alike. With that in mind, someone needs to let you know the things we know that there is a difference between what we women view as cute or cool and what comes across as creepy....
Second creepiest thing to me - Winking & shooting your finger at us - totally creepy - completely uncool and downright dorky! Find another method!
Also, winking can go either way depending on the wink & the accompanying look.
|You think hot. We see THIS|
For immediate conversational purposes, we care that you're straight, employed & have a car to drive yourself where you need to be... (not living with mommy also a plus)
If you get beyond that and there's chemistry - the rest might be cool - otherwise it just sounds kinda creepy and desperate.
Don't EVER tell us you're superficial & will trade us in when we're 40 for 2 - 20 year old's!
You may be joking - but our brain immediately fast forwards to that time & we see ourselves 10 (or how ever many) years older, 20 lbs heavier with 2+ kids, bills to pay and then the jackass strands us to runs off with his hot 20 something. Even if she was totally smitten, those words are the kiss of death, I assure you.
|You have amazing child bearing hips...|
We also don't care about how many conquests you have under your belt. Save that for the guys. We really don't want to know. Not only do we NOT want to hear about it - but we think it's gross & creepy. (and secretly wonder if there will be STD's involved)
Since I've been happily married for quite a while now - I felt it was time to pass on this plethora of womanly insight to the men who may be reading.
Please fee free to pass this information on to the single men you may know who may desperately need it!
To my single ladies, you're welcome! If anyone's going to put it out there - you should have known it would be me!
