“Baaaabe, can we watch a girlie one tonight…?”
Or something similar, right? As men, we’ve heard it all before, said one way or another. Regardless, it’s the tone you have to pay attention too; always mushy, sweet, and somewhat seductive, isn’t it? It causes your mind to wander to that special place where the room fills with smoke and she bursts through the door wearing nothing but heels. Back on earth though, it’s not going to go down quite like that. Sure you’re still probably going to get to give her the business, but it’s a manipulation tactic. She uses this to make you think that by watching a stupid movie about a grimy pair of jeans shared by 4 chicks is the green light to boom-boom town.
There are two things you need to remember when she starts talking about watching a chick-flick. The first, and most important, is by allowing her this pleasantry from time to time, it keeps her from bottling up those negative emotions women often harbor towards men for doing typical guy shit; like going on river boat gambling trips, playing sports for what seems like forever to her, and leaving dishes out because, to us, doing them tomorrow is the same as doing them right away. The second is by having read this, you might be able to find a way to actually enjoy these chick-flick nights.
The trick to doing this is simple. First though, you’re going to have to realize you’re never going to score a complete win here. Remember fellas, in this situation, it’s the little victories we are going for. No doubt spending the next two hours teetering on the brink of suicide, watching some crap about what a girls vagina would say if it had a voice, doesn’t excite you. Find a little entertainment value in picking a flick with a hot chick, a funny plot line, a good story or at the very least an identifiable male character. It involves taking a minute to figure out what you enjoy in a movie. After that you have to find what movies offer you enough entertainment to not want to poke your eyes out, while still allowing your girl her – for lack of a better word – “moments.”
Here are some CAVE picks to help you along. May your next trip down ya-ya sisterhood lane bring some “happy endings.”
