As women, we want the world to think we fart fairy dust and smell like flowers 24/7. I remember my mother telling my father that women “don’t pass gas,” but when no one was looking that was a different story. There are just some things women don’t feel comfortable enough to allow the men in their lives to bear witness to. We should feel secure enough to know that if they’re into us ,they’ll take us for who we are. Even if our farts are silent — but deadly.
Dating etiquette tells us that during the first couple of dates we should probably order a smaller meal, all the while being cautious of messy foods. But if that man is really for you, he will encourage your appetite! If you’re hungry, there is nothing a few leaves of lettuce will do for you. Eat! You don’t have to be a pig, but don’t be willing to pass out for the sake of looking dainty.
Dumbing Down Your Intelligence
Society tells us that men want to feel needed and “like men,” but does this mean that women have to wear a muzzle to stroke his ego? There is a way to display your intelligence without coming off as a know-it-all. There is actually nothing attractive about a woman that has the knowledge but dilutes it for the company she keeps. There are other ways to make men feel like men. Let him do some handyman duties around your apartment.
I didn’t encounter this problem until I stayed in a co-ed dorm during my sophomore year. There were so many girls walking around with full faces of makeup — all day. First thing first, you shouldn’t deceive that man like that. If you feel as though he won’t like you without more than some mascara and lip gloss, this probably isn’t someone you want to associate yourself with. Not to mention keeping your makeup on all day is terrible for your skin.
Hair maintenance was also an issue. It is easy to want your hair to be cute at night, but during those overnight stays when you wake up and it looks a mess, who will be there to help you? Not him. Protect those tresses, even if it means looking a little goofy at night.
I’ve already told you that as college students, we are not getting enough rest. As silly as it sounds, don’t be afraid to sleep in front of him. Quit trying to look like Sleeping Beauty. Chances are you’re going to snore and/or drool and it’s going to get ugly. He may even get an elbow to the face, but who can blame you… you’re sleeping!
Working out with men can be extremely intimidating, so I can understand not wanting to work out with your boyfriend. But when it comes to all those other prissy woman excuses, that’s where I draw the line. Yes, he’s going to see you sweat. And yes, your hair will be out of place. I’m sure guys dig the disheveled look. He won’t love you any less.
I personally am in favor of letting it all out there when you’re really with someone. But that may be why I’m single. Awkward…
