How could a guy get pissed at a girl whoâ€™s just spent the whole day giving him what he wants?
1. Donâ€™t Fear The Damsel In Distress Act
â€œWhenever I want a guy to do something, I put the sweet on and act innocent. Iâ€™ll do just about everything except bat my eyelashes â€” but it works! Even though Iâ€™m not naÃ¯ve, Iâ€™ll act that way and put a little extra sugar on everything I say and do toward him,â€ says Erin.
2. Bring Backup
â€œMyÂ boyfriendÂ loves surprises (even though heâ€™d never admit that), so I always come prepared. If I want him to go out with me and myÂ girlfriendsÂ one night, or if I want him to help me clean the apartment, I make sure to stop and pick up something that heâ€™ll reallyÂ loveÂ â€” or something that heâ€™s been hinting that he wants. Thereâ€™s no arguments, no huffing and puffing â€” just a little surprise and then heâ€™s in my pocket,â€Â says Lisa, â€œSeriously, it doesnâ€™t get any easier than that.â€
3. Make Him Think The Idea Was His
â€œMy mom let me in on a secret when my husband and I first startedÂ dating. She said that the best way to get through anything was to make him think it was his idea. Youâ€™ve got to be coy, but whenever I want Jed to do something,â€ says Hannah, â€œI make sure he thinks he came up with it â€” even if he knows he didnâ€™t. The fact that Iâ€™m conceding (and letting him think heâ€™s won) is the best way to get through everything.â€
4. Go Old School
â€œCall me crazy, but I just ask nicely â€” like,Â really, reallyÂ nicely. If my guy knows that itâ€™s important to me, I just tell him how important it is and then I promise to make it up to him afterward,â€ Tara says, â€œHow could a guy say no to that?â€
5. Kill â€˜Em With Kindness
â€œOh,â€ says Morgan, â€œI make sure to butter him up well before I ask him to do anything. So it doesnâ€™t look too obvious, Iâ€™ll start much earlier in the day and just make him feel really good about himself. Then, when heâ€™s all buttered up, Iâ€™ll let him know that weâ€™re going to spend the weekend with my parents! How could a guy get pissed at a girl whoâ€™s just spent the whole day giving him what he wants?â€
6. Lean Inâ€¦ For A Kiss
â€œThereâ€™s nothing sweeter than a long kiss before asking for something,â€ Meagan jokes, â€œItâ€™s kind of my way of saying â€˜Yes, I need something from you, but Iâ€™m not gonna fight you for it.â€™ I think a guy can appreciate that â€” and uh, who doesnâ€™t love a hot, steamy kiss?â€
7. Give One, Get One
â€œI go first,â€ Brittany says. â€œIâ€™ll make dinner for my boyfriend and then heâ€™ll take the lead and clean up â€” without me having to nag. Or Iâ€™ll buy him dinner and then the next time we go out for a date, he picks up the check. I think by seeing me take the initiative first, heâ€™s more likely to realize that he wants to do something nice in return. Itâ€™s give one, get one, but for relationships, ha!â€
