When it comes to speaking to the ladies, choice of phrase is vital. Girls over think everything, and even your simplest comment could turn into the main conversation the next day with her girlfriends. Essentially, talking to a girl can kind of turn into walking on eggshells – you don’t know how she’ll take anything, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. There are grenades everywhere in the female mind, and here are the biggest comments to avoid.
1. You Lost Weight
To a guy, this seems like a great compliment! You think you’re complimenting her physique and making her feel good. Unfortunately in some cases, this phrase only provokes the girl to wonder if you used to think she was fat. When it comes to weight, stay away. It’s a lose-lose situation either way.
2. Your Friend Is Smokin’
To a guy, this just seems like a normal statement. To a girl? Either she knows her friend really is a hottie and doesn’t want you to be interested in her, or she thinks her friend is average at best and assumes you have a thing for her. Feel free to talk about the smokin’ celebs, but stay away from home turf where things get personal.
3. Are You Wearing Makeup?
Goodness, this one just boggles my mind. Assume 10/10 times that the girl is wearing makeup. First off, it’s obvious when a girl is going au naturel. Second, girls try to make their makeup look as natural as possible. They don’t cake it on to shout “HEY I’M WEARING MAKEUP!” They wear it so you think they’re just flawless and naturally good looking. This is a loaded statement to say to a girl, because you’re essentially hinting that you can tell her face is painted on, which is what we strive not to do.
4. I Wish You Had Bigger Boobs.
So do we. Don’t make us feel worse than we already do. If we could all be Pamela Anderson’s, we would. Love us with our B cups!
5. I Wish You Had A Bigger Butt.
See above. We all wish we had the J.Lo or Kim K gene, but we don’t. Not all of us can be big booty judies, where would the fun in that be?
6. Wow, You Got All Dressed Up.
Girls put tons of effort into their outfits when they go out. It’s a rigorous thought process, and we leave our closets looking like the ending scene of a bad war movie. We get all dressed up to impress you and to make other girls jealous. Don’t point it out, we already know we got dressed up. Plus, this statement always comes out with a negative connoation.
7. I Didn’t Feel My Phone Buzz.
Yes you did. Our world is 100% reliant on technology, and everyone is best buds with their cell phone. We know you felt it.
8. I Don’t Know, You Pick.
Biggest red flag of a statement. This comes across to girls as A) you don’t care enough about her to make a choice and you don’t think it’s a big deal or B) she thinks you’re a coward because she wants you to take control, but you aren’t. This is also circumstantial however if you’re in a long term relationship and are used to splitting decisions 50/50.
9. It’s Not You, It’s Me.
Well buddy, if you’re leaving a girl it obviously is her. You’re choosing to leave her behind, which automatically makes it about her. This phrase just makes what is bad seem worse. Be a little more honest, open, and original when deciding to use a phrase like this.
If you didn’t honestly hear what she said, fine. But if you purposely aren’t listening? Big issue. Don’t be with a girl who you try to tune out, and don’t lead a girl on if you aren’t interested in what she’ll say. It’s been said that “huh” leads to breakups, because that’s when guys start to care less about what you’re saying. All girls know this, and now you know that we know.
