What do guys want? I'll tell ya!

Christina Aguilera told us "What a Girl Wants" but who's gonna tell us what a man wants? It's a question that has been baffling women for centuries. The more we try to figure out the answer, the more confused we get. What exactly do men want? Everyone has their own ideas, opinions based on experiences. The conversations take a pretty wild turn when discussed by women over a bottle of wine. I figured I'd bypass the ladies go straight to the source. My friend Curtis is a real ladies-man..well, he was back in the day. He's engaged now. He loved the ladies and the girls loved his smooth charm, laid back attitude and that pearly white smile. I never got under his spell so to me he was just a cool dude who I can say anything to, do anything with and just be myself around. He shared his words of wisdom with me.

"Guys don't care if you talk to other guys. We don't care if you're friends with other guys. But when you're sitting next to us, and some random guy walks into the room and you jump up and tackle him, without even introducing us, yeah, it pisses us off. It doesn't help if you sit there and talk to him for ten minutes without even acknowledging the fact that we're still there. We don't care if a guy calls you, but at 2 in the morning we do get a little concerned. Nothing is that important at 2 a.m. that it can't wait till the morning. Also, when we tell you you're pretty/beautiful/gorgeous/cute/stunning, we really do mean it. Don't tell us we're wrong. We'll stop trying to convince you. The sexiest thing about a girl is confidence!!! Yeah, you can quote me. Don't be mad when we hold the door open. Take advantage of the mood i'm in. LET US PAY FOR YOU! DON'T "FEEL BAD" We enjoy doing it. It's expected. Smile and say "thank you." Kiss us when no one's watching. If you kiss us when you know somebody's looking, we'll be more impressed. You don't have to get dressed up for us. If we're going out with you in the first place, you don't have to feel the need to wear the shortest skirt you have or put on every kind of makeup you own. We like you for WHO you are and not WHAT you are. Honestly, i think a girl looks more beautiful when she's just in her pj's. or my tshirt and boxers, not all dolled up [this is very true ladies]. Don't take everything we say so seriously. Sarcasm is a beautiful thing. See the beauty in it. Don't get angry easily. Stop using magazines/media as your bible. Don't talk about how hot George Clooney, Brad Pitt, or Matthew McConaughy is in front of us. It's boring, and we don't care. You have girlfriends for that. Whatever happened to the word "handsome"/"beautiful"? I'd be utterly stunned by a girl who greeted me with "Hey handsome!" instead of "Hey baby/ stud/ cutie/ sexy" or whatever else you can think of. On the other hand i'm not saying i wouldn't like it either ; ) Girls, I cannot stress this enough: IF YOU AREN'T BEING TREATED RIGHT BY A GUY, DON'T WAIT FOR HIM TO CHANGE. DITCH HIS SORRY, DISGRACE-TO-THE-MALE-POPULATION BUTT, AND FIND SOMEONE WHO WILL TREAT YOU WITH UTTER RESPECT!!!!!!!!! Someone who will honor your morals. Someone who will make you smile when you're at your lowest. Someone who will care for you even when you make mistakes. Someone who will love you, no matter how bad you make them feel. Someone who will stop what they're doing just to look you in the eyes...say "i love you" and actually mean it."

I stumbled across this the other day. It's about 4 years old. It kinda made me regret losing touch with C. It's been almost 2 years that I've seen him or talked to him. Pretty pathetic huh. I'd love a good conversation with him right now. We had the best talks and laughed so much at the stupidest things. People watching with him was a hoot! Whatever happened to not looking back, right?
