11 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

After my article detailing 15 things every guy should know and understand about girls, but somehow never do, a bunch of my guy friends started telling me things they wish girls knew about guys. So, here are 15 things guys wish girls knew.

Guys are much more straightforward than you might think.

Take what they say literally because they aren't intentionally trying to trick you.

It would be appreciated for us to do something cute once in a while.

We want them to do cute things for us, but sometimes they wish that care and attention would be reciprocated in a similar way.

Take notice in what he's interested in.

Even if they're something you're not a huge fan of, try to incorporate it into your conversations and activities you do together. He'll notice.

Don't be afraid to make the first move.

Guys can be shy too. Don't be afraid to show interest. It's easier to pay attention to him without seeming creepy than you might think.

Make it easier for guys to make decisions.

Answering "I don't care, you choose" doesn't always make the situation easier.

Don't be afraid to show him what you're passionate about.

Seeing you happy and engaged makes them happy. Don't be afraid to ramble and rant about something you really care about.

Don't care so much about messing up your appearance.

Guys would rather you live in the moment and get sweaty, muddy, or messy in general if you're having fun than you not being all in in fear of not appearing perfect.

Guys aren't mind readers.

If you want them to know something, tell them. It'll make everything easier and less stressful for everyone involved.

Humor is attractive.

Don't be afraid to be funny or quirky or disguise the random snorts that occasionally happen when you laugh. Guys like them more than you would expect.

Don't be afraid to have your own opinions, even it contradicts theirs.

Part of getting to know someone is knowing their stance on varying topics. Don't be afraid to let them know who you really are; they won't change their mind about you over something trivial.

Clingyness is an automatic turn-off.

It's one thing to be dependent on them, but when you take it a step further and cannot live without them 2 months into dating, they can get scared and run away. Give them their space sometimes.

Obviously, guys are a lot less complex than girls, considering there are 11 things on this list, as opposed to 15. So, this list ends here. Disclaimer: this is supposed to be a general list, and obviously not all guys are the same.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
