The other day I had a revelation. I’m getting a bit bored of my girly wailings about love and life and never understanding either. So what better way to figure out what boys want than ask one of them. What do boys actually reckon about love and attraction and all the complicated stuff that’s going on between people?
So with pride I present you my first ‘From A Boy’s Perspective’ guest blog. And feel assured these insights are invaluable. Use them to your advantage and read up on football. And behave like a lady. And learn how to cook. And shower for God’s sake. Read why below.
What’s the first thing that attracts you to a girl?
Confidence met with intelligence.
How do you know someone fancies you?
They make you food!
When do you feel most like yourself?
Being physical, experiencing and understanding nature, being with people.
What life advice would you give to your 16-year-old self?
Be confident in your own abilities, never be afraid of failing. Take time out to experience stuff. Never be afraid of asking what seem like stupid questions.
What’s the main difference between boys and girls?
Girls like shoes, boys like football.
What makes you fall for a girl?
Confidence, social proof - seeing that a girl has an active life...hobbies, talents, events, passions etc. The stuff you look for in anyone...
Do you believe in ‘moments’?
Every minute is a moment!
What things put you off a girl most? What’s a deal-breaker?
Messy room, just messiness in general. Lack of personal hygiene. Sofa sitting. Laziness. Lack of drive/ambition.
If you could go out with any girl who would it be?
Three-day-text rule. Yes or no?
Not text 3 days after meeting someone? Naaah, never leave it that long. 3 day text is a myth.
What makes the perfect date?
Food, drink, a touch of culture, laughter, randomness...
Beauty or Brains?
Style or Substance?
Can't have one without the other, m'fraid…
Blonde or Brunette?
Wife or Vixen?
