The Most Painful Things A Man Can Say To A Woman
Why can’t we just be more like (insert other couple here)
If you want us to be more adventurous, more affectionate, more romantic—terrific. Let us know. But don’t phrase it as “we should be more like (insert name of couple you’re friends with).” Then we will just become subconsciously bitter toward the female in that couple. Really, comparing us to another couple makes it feel more like something is wrong with our relationship, rather than there is just room for improvement. But, if you have a couple that you want to be like, then we feel like you have been analyzing a lot more about our relationship than you’ve been letting on. You may say you just admire that couple because they’re more romantic, but we’re going to analyze the rest of them.
