easy peasy.

My bible circa ages 16 - 19, also known as Cosmopolitan, has found it was back into my life.

I boycotted it after five consecutive months of my boyfriend claiming that the "man manual" was 100% false.

Living with four other girls has placed issues of Cosmo on my coffee table a few times already this year, but until the boy pointed out that the "man manual" was fairly accurate, I never bothered to pick up a copy.

(I knew my ex wasn't normal. I think that in order for the "man manual" to accurately profile his needs and wants, he'd have to actually be considered a man.)

This month, the "man manual" included a page listing the four things guys judge girls for. They included, and yes - were limited to: friends, cell phone usage, drink of choice, and laugh.

Can this be true? Is this all a girl really needs to do to blow a man mind?

Okay - I won't text message while we're hanging out, i'll laugh at all your silly jokes, i'll order a fine pilsner or a gin and tonic, and my friends... although I can't change them - are just as likable as I am.

How simple minded.

I feel like if it were that easy, there wouldn't be books like He's just not that into you, or movies/shows like Sex and the City.

Or maybe it is that easy, and thats the problem. Maybe all the lovely single ladies are thinking wayyy too far into what a guy wants.

So girls, try this: learn how to make pancakes, put your cell phone on silent, laugh a lot, and drink gin.

And let me know how it works out - incase my future with the boy ends abruptly.


  1. Sounds like a plan. As one of the aforementioned guys, I'm curious to see how that works out.

  2. Out of all those, laugh is really the only one I care about. I've heard some annoying laughs in my day, but a pleasant laugh is like music to me ears. Plus I like to make teh ladeez giggle, so it's all good for me.

  3. I agree. Guys are always bought with food. Sad, but true.
