-don't make us chase you because you're guys and you should do the heavy work- that's what you're here for.
- girls like wake up & goodnight texts even if we don't admit it
- we love when guys take initiative. it's kinda manly and is a progression from your boyish 'playground' days.
- if we work we want a guy who has a job too- because we definetly aren't paying for the date and we don't want your mom paying either.
- oh an while we are on the subjec of dates i, like most other honest girls realize that when you take us to the movies for every date it means 1- you dont' want to be seen with us ( other girls, your friends, etc) 2- you don't want to talk to us 3- you don't want anyone seeing that your hand is slowly making its way to our zippers.
- please don't use her emotions to make her believe that you like her more than you do because that's just plain selfish; not to mention mean.
-whatever her talents are appreciate them becuase she's probably praised you on your girft.
- if she loves poetry (wink, wink =)) take her to a cafe that hosts a poetry night. even if she never gets up to share her work she'll be happy to be in a place where people can take poetry seriously.
- for all the girls out there: feel free to give my brother and his friends advice

Of course I'll keep writing- thanks for the encouragement... I had no idea that people would actually like what I had to say so this is all really encouraging.
