Most Helpful Girl
I love to be honest with guys, so I never tell guys "just be yourself" and whatnot. I see girls who do that, and I roll my eyes at it. It's too general, and if a guy is asking clearly that hasn't been working. I give advice based on my personal experiences and observations. I would never say act like a thug or @sshole, but there are certain characteristics those guys present that women seem to like and I tell guys to take those characteristics and then take the @sshole part out of it. Did that just this week with a guy here on GAG.
I think girls give generic advice because they don't realize how they are or what guys go through in trying to get a girl. If a guy is himself and himself is awkward, quiet/shy or whatever like that, yeah he's going to have issues unless it's one of those girls who loves those kinds of guys. I think girls just feel like guys are wired to just hit on whomever they like no matter what and take rejection, and that's not true. I like to give guys advice that will minimize their chances of rejection because I know I suck at handling rejection--like, it will bother me all day for two days at least and then sting for some more time and affect my decisions/actions going forward. I'm about lessening those experiences and risks, not just telling you to just go for it and deal with the fallout, basically.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
