Default Guys Life Advice

The last few months of my life has been a huge learning experience for me. I've realized that I've needed to take more advise from others, and that there are various things that guys ought to know to be successful in relationships, professionally, and in everyday life. This is aimed at guys specifically, though many of these can be applied for gals as well.

Relationship Advice: The best gift to give your crush is not material, if you want her to remember you then the best gift is simply being with her. Talk to her, get to know her, let her know you. Time together, even in a casual setting, is the best thing to get her to remember you.

My best friend told me this, as I recently came out telling him that I was interested in a friend of his girlfriend. Fully supportive, he shared this with me saying that this was the best advice he's gotten. And I've found it to be very true. Sure it's a slow and steady approach, but I'm making solid in-roads that I know will last in her mind.

Relationship Advice: Building on the last post, if you do decide to give her a physical gift, make it something personal that will always remind her of you. Don't go overboard, as you'll just scare her away. For example, since I'm good with woodworking and my crush loves Christmas, I made her two wooden Christmas ornaments, while the rest of my friends got store bought items. A good friend of mine with much more dating experience than me said it was a very smooth move. You don't have to make it yourself if you don't have the skills, just focus on the little personal things, not the price tag.

Know when to accept when you are wrong, it makes you humble. People in general will appreciate you more and have more respect and admiration for you for that.

Dress to impress. Jeans and t-shirts might be fine casual attire, but don't be afraid to class it up when doing something a bit more formal. Just goes to show you are respectful, and just makes you look better.

And guys, if you are going on a more formal date with your gf and you know she is dressing up for it, try harder than just a wrinkly button-down. Nothing annoys me more than a girl all prettied-up going out with a guy who looks like he pulled his outfit out of the hamper. Be classy guys, put on a clean shirt, slacks, and dress shoes. She's dressing up for you, dressing up for her is the least you can do.

Own a coat and tie.

This is mainly for the older guys here, who are beginning to come out of their parents' wing and form their own path in life. So as you probably know from my prior post I think a guy should dress well. In most cases, dress pants and a button down are all you really need, however there are cases where something extra is need, aka a coat and tie. Weddings, funerals, formal gatherings, professional job interviews, these are all cases where having a coat and tie will impress. Despite the stereotype they aren't too expensive, as long as you aren't buying some custom tailored italian cashmere money-pit. One thing I've found is that Goodwill and Salvation Army generally have plenty of high quality coats and suits at a fraction of the retail price. I went there this last Summer looking for 2 coats to take with me to college, and instead walked out with 4 suits and 3 coats, because they just fit me nearly perfectly and were a crazy good deal.
