Oh, c'mon, how many times have you come across us complex beings and wondered, 'what the fuck does she want, anyway?' "She", could be your female friend, your girlfriend, your colleague or just someone you know.
Well, it's an old, and quite stale, in my opinion, joke that even god doesn't know what we want and all that crap. Well, let me give you a survival guide when you ask this question again.
In most cases, we don't quite want anything. Yes, we are complicated, but definitely less complicated than solving the Rubik's cube. So, instead of wondering why we are behaving in certain way, how about introspecting and asking yourself, "did I do anything?" and more importantly, "what was it that I didn't do?" Should you have done something to please us and not done it?
And how do you know that you were supposed to do something? After all, we never said anything explicitly, and since you guys are so practical, hints don't quite work on you, so why can't we just cut some slack and tell you in exact words what we want. Well, that is because, we love to feel special, and in most cases, making us feel special for no reason will earn you super brownie points. How about sending some surprise flowers to her workplace along with a hand written note? :D
Also, let me clarify one thing, we don't want super expensive stuff. (not that you shouldn't get us any, but.. :P) We'd be as happy with a Harry Winston as we'd be with a long stemmed rose or a two rupees ke roasted peanuts. Seriously. Just the way all these self help books tell you to do one random act of kindness to make the world a better place, these small random acts of love will make us love you even more. :D Sachhi. :D We just feel awesome when you do such small things because it makes us feel important.
Be Chivalrous. Yea, so we love it when men give us special treatment. And no, it has nothing to do with equality. Being chivalrous to someone you love is more of an emotional thing and equality debate is more of a moral issue. Let's not mix it. Just be nice, offer to pay (yea, even though i insist on paying for my own stuff, I'd be super thrilled if you pay for me) and don't be too stingy. It makes us kind of uncomfortable and you might lose out on some crucial points which may lead to second date.
Do not play too hard to get. We will take it as if you are not interested, and won't try further. Apparently, even though we tend to get emotionally involved too easily, we can handle rejection easier than you guys. We'll just move on :D At the same time, if the girl is playing a bit hard to get, indulge her. As I said, making us feel important is crucial to win our hearts! :D
Reply to sms/chats/tweets. That doesn't mean you stalk us, and read/reply to every frigging tweet, but when we send you smses, reply. If you don't you're losing out on points. Call us, but not every other hour - we will get bored, plus, we'll feel you're coming on too strong and are possessive - and you wont hear from us anymore.
Just as you need your space, and your night out with boys watching matches and playing games, even we want our time.. :) respect our privacy! :D Contrary to what you may want to believe, our world doesn't revolve around you, but it revolves around us. :D
Well, that's all I can think of at the moment.. go ahead, make that special girl feel special.. :)
