9 Things I Don't Understand About Guys
Boys are . . . interesting.
I mean, I'm around them pretty much everyday because not only do I have brothers, but there are also guys at school. Being around guys has made me realize that there is a bunch of weird stuff they do that makes absolutely no sense to me.
It is so hard to know if a guy likes you sometimes. Because one minute this guy could be all over you, and then the next minute they're off clinging to some random person they just met. Or there's the flip side where they want to be around you constantly, text you at all hours of the day, and then you find out that they've been doing that to all of their lady friends.
Like how am I supposed to know if your little eyebrow wiggle signifies that you're being cheeky or if you're just doing that because it itches? Girls take vague flirtations and try to assume things, and guys are rarely direct when they flirt. So please, just make it easy and say, "Wow, you're pretty amazing. I like you." It would be so much easier.
2.) The Bad Boy Thing
I don't get why guys think they have to be these bad boy types and aren't allowed to show emotion. The minute I try to have a deep conversation with a guy, they completely shut down. It's like their mind cannot comprehend this weird thing that I'm trying to do. It's even more evident if they're in a group of their guy friends. Like if they're in their little circle of manliness, no emotions are allowed. I don't understand.
3.) All Them Smells (Please No More Axe)
Guys have two extremes when it comes to smell. Extreme number one is the "I haven't showered in weeks so I'm just gonna spray an entire bottle of Axe on myself and call it a day." Please don't do this. I don't get why guys think that a bottle of smell is going to fix their body odor. It doesn't. The other extreme is that they just haven't showered and they don't even bother with the Axe. This is almost worse because gross boy smell is one of the nastiest things ever. Walking behind someone who doesn't smell pleasant is definitely not my favorite thing to do on a weekday.
Please, guys, save us from gross boy smell. A guy who smells good is one of the most attractive things ever. Smelling nice is a win-win for you, so put the Axe down and find some nicer smelling stuff.
4.) The "Swag" Walk
I don't get it either.
5.) Ab Shots
Why do guys post mirror selfies on Instagram of their abs? Not only abs, but they also pair the ab shot with their face looking like they're squinting trying to read font size one in super bright sunlight. Is this supposed to be attractive? These kinds of pictures kind of make you look the opposite. Sorry to spoil your collection of ab shots.
6.) The Hair Flick
I'm pretty sure there are some guys who take their hair more seriously than girls do. And there are two different types of guys when it comes to hair. There's the group with the super long fringe in the front (like this Bieber gif of the past). These guys are constantly fussing with their hair, flicking it to the side so that it looks like it's windblown and luscious. Why even have your hair that long if you're constantly shoving it to the side?
7.) Fashion Choices
Please pull your pants up. Love, the world.
8.) Flexing. (Do you honestly think your biceps are going to make me love you?)
Going along with the ab shot pictures, why do guys think it's necessary to show their flexing muscles to the world. They'll go as far as to post gym pictures and bicep shots. Sure, a guy who's fit is pretty attractive, but I feel like once you've reached the point where you feel it's mandatory to send bicep pictures to your friends, it's gone down a weird path. Your muscles are not going to make me love you. Personality amongst other things does that, 'kay? Muscleheads aren't cute.
I'm just straight up curious about this one. Do guys even have sleepovers? I'm sure they don't do the whole gossiping about boys, watching chick flicks, and doing girly things, but do they even do sleepover things? Do they just sit there and discuss manly things like football? Do they eat their bodyweight in food? Do they talk about girls? Someone explain this mystery to me.

That is all.
