GET THE GIRL (in 5 easy-peesy-lemon-squeezy steps!)

I always like to have a good giggle when I hear guys complain about women and how we make their heads hurt. Us gals are actually so easy to figure out. So much so, that it probably makes the simplicity of our actions seem complex. 

My roommate and I always vent to each other about our girly trials and tribulations. We've come to an agreement that girls definitely aren't the most confusing creatures ever (perhaps men are the crazy ones), and here's why:

1. If you want to know something about us, just ask. 

So, if you're talking to a girl and want to know more about her, bite the bullet and ask. Girls are "taught," if I may, to be mysterious, to make the guy chase her, etc. She will probably be ecstatic to reveal more about herself and her story to you. 

2. Don't be crazy, and we won't be crazy. 

Luckily I haven't had too many situations to add to my Burn Book (just kidding- I don't own one), but holy cow, some of my best friends have. Use common sense when talking/interacting with girls. AKA- don't brag about how many girls you've been with, don't critique our looks, don't comment on our actions if we're a little moody every now and again (we ARE girls after all, hormones are a thing). 

3. When it comes to texting, don't play games. 

I absolutely hate texting unless, of course, I'm trying to get to know someone. Once I'm invested in a conversation and don't get a text back, I wait. and wait. and wait. 

"Should I double-text? No, Shelby, don't do it. GAHHH you did it, you idiot!"

This might not be what every girl thinks, but thoughts like this happen on occasion when I'm left in the dark. Don't beat around the bush, dudes. We just want to know you better! 

Don't waste my time. If you see things going downhill, say so- don't go MIA. 

4. Don't lead us on. 

This is straight-to-the-point. Don't seem interested in us and then go public with another relationship. 


5. Make an effort and don't go back on your word.

Sometimes girls feel so crazy for trying to initiate seeing their person of interest. Just invite them to do little things with you- they will be happy as long as they get an invite to hang out with you! Hello?!

While we're on this topic, if you extend an invite to see them, don't cancel once you've committed. It breaks down your credibility and accountability, believe it or not. The girl will probably say "No worries!" because they really like you....but it's not all hunky-dory. 


Be yourself. Do cute things. Say cute things, and VOILA. You caught a good one.
