National Boyfriend Day: Decisions a man needs to take in a relationship
First Published 3, Oct 2020, 5:02 PM
Today on the occasion of National Boyfriend Day we look at the seven important decisions a man needs to take in a relationship
When it comes to giving a gift, it has to be a very thought out decision, almost like answering multiple choice questions with negative markings. While today your girlfriend might be happy with a teddy bear and chocolate as a gift, tomorrow only diamonds or a trip on the weekend can make her happy. If men spend too little on a gift, they are called misers and stingy and if they spend too much then termed as trying to show off or buy love with money.
You may have heard of gangsters coming up with this – Your money or your life. In desperate situations like these most usually prefer to part with money. But in the case of men in relationships, married or single the single most difficult choice they keep having to make is between their mother and their girlfriend or wife. Side with the mother and he risks being called a mama’s boy or tied to mama’s apron strings; if he supports his girlfriend or wife the man gets called a traitor, hen-pecked husband and more. Sigh!
Eyes only for you
Face it guys, when you are in a relationship or are married then being single sounds like a much better prospect. Case in point, there is this beautiful girl walking down towards you and you cannot help but appreciate the beauty on those two legs but how to do it when your GF is looking? Many men have fallen victim to the roving eye and many relationships have been broken because women caught their men gazing/gawking at another woman in their presence.
Difficult choices to make dear men. When you are single and uncommitted your friends are the only gang you stay with. A change in relationship status for you then becomes a whole lot of difficult to please both parties. Gone are days of guzzling beer with friends and those impromptu road trips, now your priorities take on a different avatar – shopping trips and movie outings, no talking to girlfriends, and limiting the male company you keep. How do you do it, men?
To shave or not to shave
Even your facial hair has a lot to do with whether or not you get the girl to go out with you. Remember the time when you and your friends used to play ‘longest beard first’. Yeah, well that’s history for you if your wife/gf prefers a clean-shaven man. I am sure your mothers will also be happy with this. But then you have hit the jackpot of girlfriends if she likes you with your beard and stubble and plus No shave November becomes a celebration of sorts.
The fat question
Yeah, that’s an absolute tricky one. You need tact and smartness to wriggle your way out of this one. If you think honesty is going to get you brownie points, think again. If you think flattery is going to get you in her good books, oh boy! that going to backfire really bad. If you can squirm your way out of this one, dear men then you are on a roll.
To fart or not to fart
We have saved the most important decision for the last as men can truly test the status of their relationship and comfort levels if you are confident enough to fart in front of your girlfriend and live to laugh about it. Yeah, bodily gasses are the one true test of love. You fart you lose.
