Perhaps we could cut down on the casual shoes, but then we wouldn't have the fun of shoe shopping would we?
“I don’t understand their attitudes! Everything is good for, like, the first three months, but after that, it’s a whole different ball game!”
I met a guy at a bar once, I wouldn't call him a friend of a friend, more an acquaintance of a friend. He was ridiculously drunk and getting on everyone's nerves. Having no emotional attachment to the guy, nor any desire to be attached in any way in the future, I told him to go sit down. He looked straight at me and said "I don't like you." I told him that was fine. My point? This guy and I are never going to date or be friends or even like each other. Had I had even an inkling of desire to ever be in his good graces, I wouldn't have told him off two minutes into meeting him. When people start dating, they put their best face forward. Later on their true self comes out more. I don't know if it needs to be as extreme as the question makes it sound, but it's bound to happen to some extent on both sides.
“I don’t get why girls say one thing and mean something different. Like when they say, ‘You can watch the game,’ and then when you do, you get in trouble.”
Ever see The Breakup (or even the previews for it?) The scene where Jennifer Anniston tells Vince Vaughn "I want you to want to do the dishes." Her words are the funny way to say it but what she actually means is "Of course you don't want to do dishes, no one wants to do dishes, I don't want to do dishes but I do them because they need to be done. I want you to be willing to do the dishes because you know it'll help me out and make me happy." We want you to be willing to skip the game to spend time with us. We want to be more important to you than the game. But we want it to be your choice, we don't want to be the bitch who wouldn't let you watch the game.
“What I don’t understand is why girls really, really, really want that nice guy, but once they find one, they can’t date him because now they need a jerk.”
I'm gonna throw this over to Yahoo! Personals and dating expert April Masini because she says it better than I ever could...

Like Ne-yo says in "Miss Independent" there's something about someone who wants you, but doesn't need you that's much more appealing than someone who never says no.
“Why do girls not like other girls when they first meet them? It’s as if they have to prove themselves to each other before they’ll consider them acceptable to hang out with.”
I've always gotten along better with guys, always, my whole life. I used to think it was because I was rather tomboyish. In high school I realized that my "nemesis" was a girl who was a whole lot like me, we even had crushes on the same guys, and that was the reason we didn't like each other. Bottom line, girls see each other as competition.
