Tips for the Fellas

Haha, this is funny. Someone needs to do this.

I know what you’re wondering, Ava V., you write about dating all the time, but you never give any tips to men.  Well here’s one that’s pretty simple:

Want me to let you in on a little secret girls keep?  If you’re reasonably good-looking (not gorgeous more like average), you can get most girls to like you.  But how you ask?  Show interest.  Yes, it’s that simple!  Most any girl will look at you differently once you show interest, and will say to herself, “you know, he’s actually kind of cute.”  This happens so often, and to be honest it happened to me with a few guys (oh sophomore year…why was I always the one getting hit on by bouncers?).  They weren’t the cutest guys, but they were nice, showed interest, and most importantly weren’t creepy.  You must show interest without being creepy, which for some of you is probably a bit tricky.  So I’ll lay out some examples of what NOT to say for you.

1. If you think she’s cute don’t ask her if she works at the Foxy Lady.

2. Don’t ask her if she’s drunk yet.

3. Never text/call past 11 pm unless you saw her out previously.  Even still use caution.

4. Don’t ask her to go get scorpion bowls at 3 in the afternoon.

5. Don’t make animal noises in her presence.

Just remember if you’re not sure if you’re seeming creepy you probably are.  And if you’re still not sure email me (

P.S. All of the examples of what not to say came from text messages in my inbox.

    Maybe you should keep a list of missteps you see guys make. Then maybe youll start to see a pattern
