There is nothing more ghastly than makeup run amuck in the morning after spending the night together. Women tell me that they feel more pressure to settle down because they can't have children as easily past a certain age.
I don't feel pressure in that sense, but I do fear that my appearance and my "game" (not that either are working for me presently) will fade as I get older.
The best thing to do is to act like you have some experience, and not question anything.
I think back to the advice my dad once gave my sisters and me when he snuck us onto the "premium members only" tennis courts at this fancy resort at the beach.
Alcohol should be introduced into the relationship slowly, but if a drink or two takes the edge off, and wine adds romance it's fine. But the one thing that should never happen is excessive application: too much, too many colors, or if it's just a botched attempt at a good makeup technique.
I just think guys across the board are more sports-obsessed than women are. The entire shower apparatus is so slippery, and then you have soap all over the place. Plus, I do my best to keep my bathroom clean, but I don't think I'd ever want to have sex anywhere near something called "mildew." think you're crazy sometimes, but only because it makes things easier for us.But I've learned not to make things worse by suggesting that she's PMSing. If a guy feels like he does not deserve a woman or is not good enough for her, he will become jealous easily and worried that he's going to lose her to another guy.On the other hand, I admit that I have tried to make girls I'm interested in jealous on purpose before.We hate when you try too hard to be one of the guys. My solution is to try to get a place by the beach and do it out on the porch where you can see and hear the waves: Sex at the beach, but not on the beach. Sometimes, I just act like they have no chance, even though I might like them.It's pretty lame that my buddies and I invent words and languages and then giggle over them like schoolchildren. I openly flirt with other girls in front of them, and talk about how hot other girls are in front of them. It's nice to hear nothing but your lover's breath against the backdrop of the evening or early morning. It's peaceful to lie in someone's arms in the dark with great music or even the low buzz of the TV (although that tends to distract me) in the background.I think the old adage "Girls mature faster than boys" comes into play here.Commitment is a sign of maturity, and it just takes some of us longer. I know if a girl seems unsure of herself in bed, it gets distracting and starts to feel awkward.There are so many incorrect things I could say, from weak to gross to just downright bizarre. Honestly, sometimes a woman's anger does look hormonal.Last thing I need is to give this girl some material for a girls' night conversation. I have said something to a girl one day that she laughs at, but then a week later she bites my head off when I say the same thing.
