I've been told a couple times that girls need to appear weak like they need a man to do things for them. Is that true or is that just some of my friends being stupid? By weak I mean losing games, not being able to open bottles or lift things without their help.

No, I don't pretend to be "Weak" but if a man is around I may ask to him to open a door for me or a bottle, just so he can feel useful. Now, of course, I can do these things by myself but it gives him a chance to strut his manliness. If we are with a mostly male crowd playing a game, I would do my best to make him look good. There is absolutely nothing for me to gain by making him look inferior in front of his peers. And by doing that, I would expect him to do the same for me when I am around my friends. Basically, ask him to do something easy and thank him, then he'll feel good about himself and think you're great. And you're letting him take credit for doing exactly what you wanted. Haha =]1
