5. Be able to have interesting conversations on any topic. This doesn’t mean that you have to be an expert in everything, but be willing to discuss unusual topics. Know nothing about fossils? Be willing to have her teach you what she knows, and ask relevant questions. If you try to learn something new each day, you’ll always have something new to talk about.
This is ridiculous! What kind of “geeky” advice do they think they are giving? “Treat women like humans.” It’s that easy.
I agree. These are things that guys should do anyway. The cooking one would especially impress me though. I think cooking is one of the most romantic things a guy can do for his girlfriend, but that’s just me.
ok, it may not be “geeky” but let’s be honest- how many guys do you see doing ANY of the things listed here. They may be things guys should be doing anyway- but I have met a lot of boring guys (and girls) that don’t know how to have conversation and truthfully a guy that is completely respectful of a woman’s intelligence and is interested in learning from her would be a rare find to me.
I keep saying it over and over again but I cannot wait until spring!
Next quarter I think I am going to end my undergraduate career with three months of artsy fartsy classes such as Acting, Gay and Lesbian Literature, The Philosophy of Sex and Love, and Critical Approach to Poetry
Erin, I’m taking the same approach with my schedule next quarter. Right now I’m leaning toward Creative Nonfiction Writing, European Studies, a journalism independent study and a theater or art class.
critical approach to poetry is like a junior high english class, but the people are even dumber. DO NOT take it unless you want to waste a quarter learning how to pronounce your own name. i also learned what a metaphor is. seriously, i took this class because i thought it sounded awesome and it’s just…so, so disappointing.
maybe it’s just my professor. but it is MIND-NUMBING.
I agree completely, critical approach to poetry is mind-numbing (but an easy A+), I even had a great prof, but she had to dumb it down for everyone else in the class except for a handful. ALL creative writing classes have been beneficial to me however and Emily- I am planning on taking a non-fiction this spring too! Also Erin, is your philosophy of sex and love online? because I have a few friends in that now and it seems like an outdated joke. I would be down to take an art class this spring, is art in your life (or whatever) being offered, yea?!
