I read this blog post over on EliteDaily and thought, wow, what an opportunity for some semi-satire…. I decided to stop at the first point, though, because it’s such an incredibly good one.
9. When you try to comprehend
Seriously. You’re always saying you can’t figure out what we want. Well, Pinterest. Even a cursory trolling of our Pinterest boards will tell you. Pinterest, then shop.
The Pinterest phenomenon is so cool. When I look at my pin board (don’t, it’s boring), I realize that yes, it’s not very big or very girly. But that’s ok, because anyone who wants to know about what I like will quickly discover that the fastest way to my heart is GS parts. Or whole GSs. We post what we like, simple as that. And I like BMW bikes. And VW parts. And watches with carbon fibre bits. And so on. A quick peek at my GFs’ boards shows the same thing – a very clear picture of their hearts’ desires, from hot pink hand-spun alpaca wool to kitschy dolls to AMC body panels. But it’s all there, out in the open.
How guys are missing out on this very clever method of getting to understand what women want is beyond me.
