After Nima’s post last week on how to keep guys interested – deleshoon bekhad – I think it’s high time someone spelled it out for all the men in our lives who seem to only know how to complain about women.
“Women are so confusing.”
Big shout out to our joons who contributed via Twitter!
We’re sick of hearing about how girls are cray. So we’re here to help the boys out. Give them some of the basics so they can stop being so basic.
1. Ask her questions.
Yes, we already know you have a job (hopefully), and that you’re a potential catch. But don’t forget that you’re on a date with us… not with yourself. No hos to hear your life story on a first date.
2. Just be cool.
Dating is definitely a source of anxiety. Believe me, we feel it too. But can we not be Persian-old-school about it? If the point of dating is to get to know one another then why would you not keep it real? Forget about your “image” and the “game.” We’re not as interested in your house, car, or mom.
3. Bathe… and notice that we bathed too.
You are lying if you think there is no vanity in dating. We made an effort to look for nice for you. So notice. Say something. We notice you. And we say things…
4. Just be cool, part 2.
Basically, don’t be so thirsty. You don’t like desperate girls, we don’t like desperate guys.
5. Don’t be disrespectful towards your exes.
If we’re going to date you and for whatever reason it doesn’t work out, it will be a lot harder to not get crazy if we know how much sh*t you’ll be talking. Plus it’s tacky. Why does the “ex talk” even have to happen until absolutely necessary?
There you go, boys. The survey results are in. Not as hard as you make it out to be.
What dating tips are we missing?
