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.
