A Guy Shares 12 Things You Should Never Text Him

Published

For better or worse, texting is a huge part of relationships nowadays. In fact, it can even make or break a relationship, especially in the early stages. That makes texting a critical skill for single women (and men) looking for a relationship. You want to avoid saying the wrong things, so you’re better off never sending a guy these texts.

Messages with countless pics

I get it, taking pictures of yourself with your fun is easy and fun. On the surface, it also makes sense to send pictures of yourself to a guy to help pique his interest. But there’s a limit to how many pics a guy will tolerate. Unless all of the pics you send him are super sexy and guaranteed to grab his attention, limit the amount you send over to keep him wanting more.

This might seem like an easy way to jumpstart a text conversation, but it’s not exactly endearing. You want a guy to think that you’re excited to talk to him rather than using him as a last resort because you have nothing better to do. If you want to start a text convo with a guy, start it with something interesting. Wouldn’t you want the same?

“Where are you?”

This text definitely screams clingy and way too involved, especially if it’s early in the relationship. Unless you’re in a stable relationship or you’re supposed to meet him and he’s running seriously late, there’s no reason to ever send this text. He’ll immediately think that you’re needy and looking to infringe on his freedom.

“What are we?”

Yes, this conversation needs to happen at some point, but you shouldn’t try to define your relationship over text. Honestly, if you text a guy this, you’re almost begging him to ghost you. Just wait until you’re hanging out with him and genuinely enjoying each other’s company to ask him where the conversation is going.

Nothing but emojis

Some guys might be different, but most of us aren’t huge fans of emojis. If you really like them, feel free to slip them in every now and then. That being said, texts three or more emojis and no words aren’t going to fly with most guys. There’s a good chance he won’t know what you’re trying to say with those emojis, making him frustrated and less excited to pursue the relationship.

“I love you” (if you haven’t said it before).

Of course, in a stable relationship, you should always text this to your partner. However, until you’ve said it in real life, you should never text this to a guy. I feel like I shouldn’t have to explain this too much, but nobody should be taking that step in a relationship via text.

A long, pointless story

If you have an interesting story that you’re dying to share with a guy, don’t text it to him if it’s more than a sentence or two. Texts are meant to be quick and easy. Guys typically don’t want to feel like they’ve received a reading assignment the way they did in school. Just call or a guy or text him that you have a great story to share with him the next time you see him. It’ll avoid a long text and give him something to look forward to.

“Why do you even like me?”

Honestly, this might be one of those cardinal sins in relationships. It’s something that you probably don’t want to say to him and you certainly shouldn’t text it to him. It just reeks of insecurity, which is a major turn-off. Plus, it’s such a negative statement that he might not even bother with a reply; he’ll just end the relationship right then and there.

“Are you getting my texts? Just checking.”

If it’s taking a while for a guy to text you back, the last thing he wants is you checking on him. People are busy and can’t always get back to you as quickly as you’d like. Just trust that he’ll text you back when he’s ready. Even if he’s in the midst of ghosting you, asking him if he’s getting your texts isn’t going to change that.

“We need to talk.”
iStock 000063408229 Small
Obviously, this can be a rather ominous statement, which is not what you want when texting a guy. If you “need” to talk to him, just ask him if he wants to get together. You can talk to him then or you can just call him and talk to him on the phone. Telling someone that you need to talk can be unnerving. Plus, if it’s something important, you probably don’t want to discuss it via text.

“I’m late!”

Even if it’s true, this is news you want to deliver via text. At a minimum, it warrants a phone call, but it’s probably an issue that needs to be talked about face-to-face. Let’s face it, anyone is bound to have a strong reaction to this statement, so texting doesn’t do it justice.

“I see you.”

If you see a guy out and about, don’t let him know by texting “I see you” if he wasn’t expecting to see you somewhere. It comes off stalkerish and a little creepy. Those are things you’d like to avoid when texting guys, so just walk up to him and say something like, “fancy seeing you here.” That’s usually a lot more charming than a creepy “I see you” text.

The Home Alone House Is Available To Rent On Airbnb, Ya Filthy Animals

Published

on

There are a million and one Christmas movies out there, but not one of them compares to the greatness that is Home Alone. It’s a total classic and still holds up more than 30 years later. If you love it just as much as me, you might be excited to know that the actual house used in the filming of the movie is available to rent on Airbnb.

The house is in Winnetka, Illinois. In Home Alone, the McAllister family lives in Chicago. The actual house is located in Winnetka, about 25 minutes away from the city, so you can do some sightseeing while you’re there.

Buzz is the one who listed the house. Hilariously, the Airbnb listing that would allow visitors to stay at the Home Alone house for one night only was apparently placed by Buzz McAllister, that little rascal. Many Christmases ago, the McCallisters went to Paris — well, most of us,” Buzz writes in the listing. “Though we’re older and wiser now (I’ve even got my own security firm), we’re never too old for holiday hijinks. So, while we’re away on vacation (all of us, this time), I’m inviting one crew of mischief-makers to let their inner eight-year-olds run free in my childhood home on Dec. 12.”

Your stay comes with all kinds of added extras to make it authentic. Not only will you be greeted to a “cozy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree” but you’ll also be treated to a “candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.” Oh, and Axl, his pet tarantula, will apparently also be hanging out (though hopefully in a cage).

The house seems to be a lot smaller than it was in the movie. I don’t know about you, but the Home Alone house always seemed like a mansion to me. Add to that the fact that the McAllisters seemed to host their entire family and it would have to be big, right? However, the listing only mentions two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms, which is kind of weird. Still, that’s plenty of space for me!

You’ll have to be quick if you want to stay there. The house will open for booking on December 7 and chances are, the slots will fill up fast.

Greta Thunberg ‘Needs A Smacked Bottom’ According To Jeremy Clarkson

Published

on

Greta Thunberg is an environmental activist who isn’t shy about calling the bigwigs out on their BS. She’s outspoken, direct, and tells it like it is. Of course, that offends many people, particularly men with fragile egos, who feel the need to try and belittle her intelligence and infantilize her to distract from her actual message (which makes a whole lot of sense). Case in point? Jeremy Clarkson, best known for being the host of Top Gear and a Grade-A twat, has claimed that Thunberg “needs a smacked bottom” for… standing up for what’s right?

Thunberg makes some really good points. She’s been speaking out on the measures needed to truly save the environment for years, but it was her recent protest outside the COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland that really got Clarkson’s goat. In an interview with The Times, Clarkson said that he doesn’t understand the “Greta Thunberg phenomenon” and that she “needs a smacked bottom.” Uh, gross.

Apparently, he agrees with Thunberg’s stance. Thunberg called for “immediate drastic annual emission cuts” at COP26 and criticized the event as a “two-week-long celebration of business as usual and blah, blah, blah” used to “create loopholes to benefit themselves.” She’s completely right about that, and Clarkson himself admits that. However, he took issue with the fact that she protested at all, calling it “pointless.”

I guess we should all just accept that the planet is destroyed and get on with it? At least according to Clarkson. “I simply don’t get the Thunberg phenomenon. She has no knowledge of how the world works, no manners and no letters after her name because instead of going to school, she’s been busy sailing round the world so she can be mardy and abusive to grownups,” he said.

The idea that standard school = education is ridiculous. Clarkson is trying to delegitimize everything Thunberg is saying by insisting that the only way she could know what she’s talking about is… going to high school. Where environmental science isn’t particularly taught, certainly not on a deep level. See how he’s earned that Grade-A twat label?

Why is he talking about Thunberg’s “bottom” anyway? This is perhaps the biggest issue of all: why is a 61-year-old man talking about spanking an 18-year-old woman’s “bottom” as, I don’t know, punishment (???) for speaking out about climate change? “What she needs is a smacked bottom. Here’s a tip, Greta: lecturing me on what needs to be done is pointless. It’d be like standing in my bedroom every morning ordering me to wear clothes. I know already,” he said.

Clarkson decided to throw in some good ol’ xenophobia as well. Not one to be outdone by creepy comments alone, he then suggested Thunberg should turn her ire towards China, completely ignoring the fact that Thunberg regularly calls out ALL world leaders for not doing more about climate change. “What you should be doing instead is cycling to countries where people are perhaps less aware of what should be done. China for example. That I’d like to see,” he said. “Greta standing outside Zhongnanhai with her parka and her Glastonbury backpack and her microphone, lecturing the leaders about their policies on coal and trees and so on.”

He’s been facing understandable backlash about his comments. After the interview was published, people took to social media to express their very “WTF?” thoughts on Clarkson’s comments. “What is it about Greta Thunberg that makes all old guys get angry and defensive? Brilliant to see so many young people in Glasgow caring about this planet,” one person wrote. Another remarked: “There’s a creepy shivery dirty old man weirdness to Jeremy Clarkson’s attempt at humor this week in his rage at Greta Thunberg!”

How To Flirt WIth A Guy Without Risking Embarassment

Published

Showing a guy you’re interested in him without making a fool of yourself is a delicate balance. You don’t want to come off as aloof or make him think you don’t care so that he doesn’t bother to pursue you, but you also don’t want to fall all over him when you’re not even sure if he’s into you. Here’s how to flirt with a guy and keep it as chill as possible while avoiding embarrassment altogether.

Keep it casual.

This is perhaps the most important advice when it comes to figuring out how to flirt with a guy. Many men are easily scared off in the beginning so you want to avoid coming on too strong. You can do that easily by just keeping it relaxed. Instead of asking him if he wants to go on a date with you because you’re single and looking for your future husband (lol, I know it’s true), why not just ask him if he feels like hanging out on Saturday night or going to the greenmarket with you on Sunday? The more relaxed your approach, the less stressful it’ll be for you.

Read the room.

By this I mean you should feel him out to make sure flirting with him is even appropriate. If he’s a relative stranger, you probably want to make sure he’s actually single and open to dating before you start putting the moves on him. Pay attention to little details to make sure you have the all-clear before putting yourself out there.

Mirror his body language.

A good way to flirt with a guy is by mirroring the same energy he’s giving you. If he’s a touchy-feely guy and you’re into physical touch as well, feel free to put your hand on his arm if he makes you laugh or lean in towards him. Mirroring his actions will let you know that what you’re doing is appropriate while also showing your interest. After all, if you weren’t feeling it, you’d probably avoid any kind of contact, right?

Focus on the things you have in common.

If you both like some obscure band that most of your other fans haven’t heard of, connect on that! Tap into the unique things you connect on and really focus on that. When he sees that you’re into some of the more niche things that get him going, he’ll be way more likely to be into you (or at least be way more intrigued). It may seem like this isn’t going to get you a date at all, but it’s a great way to flirt with a guy, trust me.

Have confidence.
iStock 476468563
At the end of the day, showing a guy you’re interested in him doesn’t have to be embarrassing even if he’s not feeling the same. How’s that, you ask? You should have confidence. Know that you’re a snack and that any guy would be lucky to have you. Feel confident in your interest in him as well as your ability to brush your shoulders off if he’s not feeling the same. With an attitude like that, you really can’t lose.
