Can I just tackle this head on? Well, I’m going to anyway. This ^ is bullshit.
Admittedly, it’s not ‘completely’ untrue, but it leaves out a detail so important that if a guy took this at face value he’d likely fall out of favour with the opposite sex.
Allow me to explain:
Girls (or the vast majority of us) like guys who are able to suffer in silence. Note the word ‘able’. We don’t like incessant whining or endless complaints about trivial matters like ‘the bagel man not having your favourite bagel’ or ‘the donut you just ate making you look fat’.
I’m not saying don’t mention it, I’m just saying don’t whine.
But, and this is where the advice above rings true, we do like it when you share things that you wouldn’t tell anyone else.
There are two parts to this:
1. The fact that you’re sharing something personal shows you trust us and that in turn makes us trust you.
2. If you’re usually quite a reserved person, then this shows you value our presence - resulting in brownie points.
We want to be special. And while that sounds extremely selfish, it’s true. If you’re going around proclaiming your feelings to the world, that’s not what we’re talking about here and it’s not going to work in the way you want it to.
