|Don't be like this guy! Have some fun dude!|
If you are in a relationship. You know all about both sides of this coin. You do some things you want, and you do some things you must. But just because you are doing things with your significant other that you may not enjoy all that much, does not mean that you can't find ways to have some fun or "entertain yourself" during said activities. Tonight, I will devote my forum to the men. So guys, here are some tips on how you can "entertain yourself" while doing activities with your girlfriend, wife or female friends.
Let's start at the make-up counter or make-up store. Think Sephora, MAC or any make-up section at a place of purchasing. As you may know, it takes some time for women to pick out their make-up selection as they must make sure that the color looks good with their skin texture. This is perfectly fine as no one wants to have bad make up on when they go out.
Guys, here is what you can do to provide yourself with some amusement. Take one of the samples of eyeshadow she is not using, and start applying it to yourself. This allows you to share this wonderful experience with her and it shows that you are down with the make-up thing. She will either laugh with you about this, or she will slap it out of your hand and wipe it off of your face in embarrassment.
The next logical place she will go to is the eye-liner section. For all of you who do not know, eye-liner is that thing that looks like a colored pencil, but it is very short. When she is applying the test liners, grab one that she isn't using, get a piece of paper or a receipt from your wallet and start writing with it! Even if you know what it's supposed to be used for, do this anyway. You're a guy, so you can act as if you had no idea of the pencil's purpose! Are you seeing the fun yet?
Here are some things you can do in the clothing section. If your girlfriend is anything like my sister, she will have to look through every, and I do mean every article of clothing available to make sure she did not miss anything. Well, this is a great time to ask her what each article of clothing is that you are currently viewing. Not only will you find out what a romper or maxi-dress is, but you will greatly increase your fashion knowledge. You may also be told to go and look at something else, away from her, if she gets annoyed with your trolling antics.
If she does send you away. Feel free to have some fun with the sales associates. They deal with so many tiresome, rude customers during the day. This is your chance to put a smile on their face, and a imprint into their memories. Ask one of them to pick out a awesome outfit for you. When they find something, if you are one of great boldness, try it on! You and the associate will have a grand time laughing your butts off, your girlfriend, on the other hand, may assume the face palm position.
If you haven't mad her too mad, she may take you to the "beauty supply store" for the final segment of this outing. The first thing you will notice as you walk in is all of the many wigs for sale (you see where I'm going here right?) . Let her look through what she wants to look through, get your butt to the wigs, and try on those wigs! If you can find a sales associate on the floor, ask (with the wig on) "Does this make me look hot?" Eight times of ten, they will say yes. Then find your girlfriend and ask "Can I get it pleeeeease?" Once again she will either laugh, or roll her eyes and think "Why did I bring him?"
Once you are done, wrap up your day and make her happy with you again by taking her to a nice lunch or dinner. No pranks here, you have had your fun for the day. Now, take some time to just enjoy her and her companionship.
Now ladies, I know what you are thinking: "Where is this guy!? I'm going to find him and give him and tell him personally what will happen to him if he even thought about doing this with me!!" I want to encourage you to rest and take a deep breath. Next Friday, with the help of some of the lovely women in my life, I will bring you things that you can do to entertain yourself when your guy is doing stuff that he enjoys! So be sure to come back and see what I have in store for you next week!
