Things guys should know about dating
If I heard my friends were talking about me like that, I’d transfer schools.” So don't trash talk or put down other girls to seem cool. But there is a big difference between gossip and character assassinations.Guys certainly aren't impressed, but more importantly, you don't want to hurt others. You wouldn't like it if the gossip was about you.“I couldn’t believe it because some days my hair is jacked up.” Guys may not talk about their insecurities to girls, but they totally think about their appearance even if they don’t say it out loud. “I know girls get weird when they're on their period, but I don’t get why they have to act like I’m their worst enemy,” confides Sean.“I had to ask my mom to take me to the dermatologist because I was breaking out on my cheeks and back,” says Jay. “Sometimes, my sister acts like she wishes I were dead because I won’t give her the remote control, but all that’s going on is she’s PMSing.
