How to Avoid Things You Don’t Want to Do… With Her

A lot of being in a relationship is about compromise. However, for men, compromise often means that they should shut up and do things her way. Somehow it doesn’t seem fair, but it’s just one of those cold hard facts we have to deal with in life.

Of course, the more serious the relationship is, the more you have to compromise, or more to the point, do things you’d rather not do.

Below are some suggestions on how to get out of some of the things she may want you to do.

Talk about your ex-girlfriends

A lot of women want men to talk about their prior relationships, but men don’t want to go there. I don’t know why they think this is an appropriate conversation, but they do.

In fact, they’re usually more than happy to tell you about their past relationships too. This is a delicate subject and should be handled with as mush tact as possible.

Simply tell her that you’d be happy to discuss your past relationships with her, but you don’t want to use that kind of language around her.

Go shopping

Women know men don’t like to shop, but they often times insist that you go with them when they want to shop. There’s an easy solution to this.

Get her a gay friend to take shopping with her. Warning! Make sure he’s truly gay and not bisexual. You don’t want to take any chance of losing her to someone “more sensitive” than you are.

I really think that women honestly believe that men enjoy the chick flicks. The problem is that if you tell them that you don’t like those kinds of movies, their feelings get hurt. I know, it doesn’t make sense, but don’t even try to understand. Instead just realize that this is how it is.

A good way to get out of going to a chick flick is to tell her that you have to work late. It helps if you can act really disappointed that you can’t go. Then, you can always suggest that she go and have a good time anyway.

Suggest that she go with her gay friend.

Clean the house

Men sort of already have the advantage in this scenario already. Because men have been deceiving women for years and purposefully don’t do a good job at cleaning, they believe that men truly have the inability to see dirt.

Therefore, if you continue the charade and do a poor job, she’ll stop asking you to help.

Go to church

Going to church isn’t a bad thing, but a lot of times church is at the same time that a great game is on TV.

Even if there’s no game on TV, Sundays should be for sleeping in – not for getting dressed up and sitting still for over an hour.

You won’t be able to get out of this every Sunday, so use this excuse sparingly and save it for the best games.

Tell her you’re sick. Yes, it’s very underhanded, so make sure you apologize to God.

Visit her family

It’s not that you don’t like her family, it’s just that – oh, who are we fooling? You don’t really like her family. When you’re planning an outing to visit her family, you can have a friend call you close to the time you’re planning on leaving.

Then you tell her that your friend is in crisis and needs to talk to you and you feel that you should be there for him. She’ll understand as women do this for each other all the time.

She’ll also be impressed that you care about your friendship with your buddy so much.

This may not work all the time, but you may be able to get a lot of mileage out of it if you tell her that this is really a rough time for him.

Get married

If this is truly a serious relationship and you really care about her, there is probably no sure-fire way you can get out of this one. However, you can delay it for a while. You can tell her that you want the day to be perfect for her and that you want the huge traditional wedding.

However, this will take time to save up money. If she insists that it doesn’t matter, tell her that she shouldn’t sell herself short and that she deserves it.

This won’t work forever, but it’s a good delay tactic and you’ll also get extra “points” for wanting to make the day special for her.

Have children

This can be a touchy area. Most women want children and they often want them before men are ready. One thing you can do is to arrange a day for you and your mate to baby-sit your nieces and nephews. Make sure that there are at least four of them. I found that odd numbers work best, so it’s best if you can make it five.

Try to see if you can get the brattiest ones. Also, to ensure a disaster, bribe the children ahead of time into being bratty. If you can manage it, try to get the kids for a full weekend.

If they’re really bratty, their parents will love the break. This should at least turn her off to the idea of children for a while.

As you can see, sometimes there is a way to get the act of compromise to go your way. I like to call it “the art of compromising”.

Sometimes you have to do things that you don’t want to do, but the gay friend is an essential part to any successful relationship. As long as she has a gay friend, she will probably do a lot of the things that you don’t like to do with him.

This is almost fool proof when it comes to shopping.
