Things That Guys Think But Never Say

There is a lot that goes on in a guy's mind, but not all of them you can say to girls. Sometimes it's just better when things are left unsaid and you only allude to what you want to say without actually saying it. Here is a list of  the things that guys think but never say.

15) "Why do you wear so much makeup? "

It's actually a compliment, but if you said it to a girl you don't know how they would take it. You would be surprised at how many guys would go for the girl that is naturally beautiful over the one that has tons of make-up on. 

14) " I wish you would make a move"

Even today guys are always the ones that have to make a move on a girl. We do it when we have plenty of drink in us so there is no fear. Even if a guy thinks you like him, he will always have that doubt in the back of his mind that he will end up looking like a fool if he goes over and gets rejected.


13) "Your friend is hot"

We know when it's crossing the line, you can say that a celebrity is hot because you know you will never meet them, To say it about one of their friends, will just make her insanely jealous. It's only physical attraction so for all he knows she could be a bitch.

12) " I would rather hang out with my mates"

Sometimes guy's  need to just hang out with their friends, but they don't want to upset things and so they stay in with their girl. It's ok to blow them off every now and again, but a guy needs to see his mates just as much as a girl needs to see her besties.


11) "I'm actually broke"

When a guy's pay for a meal usually he is just doing it to be courteous and a lot of the time he is actually broke. If a girl offers to pay her share of the meal, guys will always be grateful.

10) " I'm so immature"

As the saying goes "boys will be boys" and no matter how grown up they get, there will always be some immaturity in there. As much as we put on a front of manliness, once we get with our friends any maturity we have goes out the window.


9) "I have no idea what you're talking about ?"

From time to time our minds wander and we zone out, but we will never say it to a girl. We will just politely agree with them even if we have no clue what they were talking about. We'll never let her know that we weren't listening and will deny it to the end.

8) " Why do you bitch about other girls so much"

Guys don't really understand why girls bitch about each other so much. If guy's have problems with each other they usually say it outright. We just leave you to it because we don't want to put a spanner in the works.


7) " I don't know what to do when you cry"

Guys don't deal with drama well and if a girl is crying, sure they will comfort them, but inside they have no idea what to do. We're not used to this much showing of emotion, so if we act kind of weird you will understand why.

6) " I don't know which looks better on you"

Girl's insist on asking guys what outfit looks better on them, usually we pick on instinct and don't have a clue when it comes to women's fashion. It's like asking a monkey what dress is better, whichever one has brightest colours, I suppose. 


5) "That dress does make you look fat"

We may not have a clue about which clothes are better, but we can tell when a dress doesn't suit you. You don't always have to wear a tight dress, we're attracted to a girl that wears an elegant dress, that makes her look like a woman.

4) " I actually don't want to watch a chick flick"

Sometimes we just have to compromise and say that we "don't mind" when really we would rather watch anything else. They're not made for guys so why would we want to watch them. We might even say that we actually like them, but really we're just humoring you.


3) " I get really jealous when I see you with other guys"

If a guy likes a girl of course he is going to get a bit jealous when he see's her with other guys, it's only natural. Even if you have been together for a while, there is always that seed of doubt that is planted in a guy's mind.

2) "I don't want to meet your parents"

It's nothing personal, it's just when a guy meets his girlfriend's parents, it's grounds for a thorough examination of your boyfriend credentials. The family can make or break you,  so we will try and put it off as long as we can.

1) "Stop stressing out so much about how you look "

It is a lot easier for guy's in all fairness, but girls do seem to obsess over how they look. Especially when you're going out for something, girls will always take ages to get ready. It's just one of those things that guys don't understand.
