You don’t pick up after yourself at our place

Actually, we really don’t mind if you’re a little messy. An empty beer bottle here or dirty T-shirt there—no problem. But when we start seeing pieces of you (literally) all over the place (pubes all over our bar of Dove, toenail clippings on the nightstand) we tend to go off.

 

You ask how much our new haircut or handbag costs

Yet conveniently don’t mention your sportsbook.com account or the $200 you lost on the NCAA parlay. If we are sharing a bank account, here’s something you should know: Reminding us when we’re in the throes of post-retail bliss that we just blew all our disposable income for the month is not going to endear you to us. The perfect boyfriend response: “Wow, [fierce/sexy/hot] new [haircut/handbag/lingerie item]!”Then wait a few days to bring up your financial concerns, by proposing we both start saving for something we want to buy together.

 

You talk to us as if we’re one of the guys

If you have any romantic inclinations toward us, please don’t call us by our last name. Otherwise we’ll assume we’ve already been relegated to buddy status and start thinking of you that way, too. Also, you’ll rarely find us holding entire conversations in Simpsons and Old School quotes. Similarly, we don’t talk in numbers the same way men tend to. We’re happy to see evidence of your improvements at the gym, but we really don’t need to know how much you can bench-press. No, the conversation doesn’t have to be all about us, but we do want you to shoot for topics of mutual interest.

 

You speak of the future vaguely

Men seem to have perfected a special way of talking about the future that makes it unclear whether we’re a part of it or not. Or maybe you don’t know you’re doing this? For instance, you frequently mention your buddy’s wedding in another state 6 months from now and you haven’t asked us to go with you. If you picture us in your future, try talking about these things in such a way that we’ll stick around for it.
