Konrad’s Korner: 6 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

Happy weekend everyone! The snow has fallen here in Nebraska and it has been beautiful! Walking to class in the cold has been… not so fun.  But as long as there’s snow i’m a happy camper.  

So i’ve mentioned before how Konrad {my boyfriend} is one of my biggest supporters in life and of my blog.  So I thought it would be fun to have a little corner for him to share his thoughts and insights.  I’ve always wondered what goes through a boy/man’s mind and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.  And Konrad was more than willing to write on Happy Healthy Vibes for me, so thank you babe : ) 

So without further ado… Meet Konrad:

My name is Konrad. I attend college with Marisa and we have been dating for 4 years, 10 months, and 4 days. She has asked me to come on here and give a little insight from a guys perspective. A few things you should know about me are, I am an electrical engineering major, I love anything that has wheels or electronics, and I play the viola and the guitar.  So anyways, on to my opinions about the world.

So here are the 6 things guys wish girls knew:

1. Guys don’t care if you talk to them first, or if they talk to you first. If the guy doesn’t walk up to you and say hello, that’s probably cause he’s shy or doesn’t want to come off like a tool, not because he’s not interested. Guys, unless already dating someone seriously, are always ALWAYS interested in talking to women. We have no issue with the girl being the first one to talk to us, text us, send a letter to us, send morse code to us, etc. It doesn’t diminish our ego or some silly thing that some girl wants to talk to us. 

2. You should never ever settle for someone that doesn’t treat you with the upmost respect. Every single guy has seen enough disney movies to know how to treat you right. And if they don’t, then you shouldn’t hang around. I constantly hear about girls complain about how all guys are jerks. And I’ll give you that, that lots of them are, but for every one that’s a huge jerk, there’s one that isn’t that you simply haven’t talked to, he’s probably even reasonably attractive, but he doesn’t have the guts to walk up to you and say “Hi, I’m Jimmy and I think your pretty”. So see point 1 about talking to these less rude gentlemen. 

3. Make-up is never required to go out and see your crush, boyfriend, husband, or even normal friends. I never expect Marisa to be wearing any and frankly I think she looks fantastic without it. I’m not saying you can’t wear make-up, I’m just saying you really don’t need it. If I can walk around and look like I do without make-up (see above picture, but beware its not pretty) then so can you girls. Guys rarely notice make-up unless its excessive anyways. 

4. In conjunction with #3 (no make-up required), the single worst thing you can do when dressing for any occasion is not try. If you show up to a job interview looking like you don’t care, then people see that and think that. And any date you go on is basically an interview.  Now that doesn’t mean that you can’t go to class in sweats or yogas. That just means you’d better rock those sweatpants. The more confident you are, the better you look, regardless of what your wearing. 

5. There are many video games in the world, there are many guys who play them. Guys love it when girls try to play video games with them, and try to learn them. It’s a major plus to see girls that make the effort to try and learn. Like its super cute to watch Marisa try and learn, and get frustrated or succeed in some way. It’s really enjoyable to share that with the person you love. 

6. Girls, Guys enjoy shopping when one key thing happens, TRY STUFF ON! If I get to go shopping with Marisa (which happens often) and she trys stuff on, it’s super fun! Shopping isn’t boring as long as we make it fun together. 


I hope everyone had a good weekend and enjoyed this post : ) Thanks to Konrad for being such a stud and wonderful boyfriend for writing!

    I love this! It’s always nice to hear things from a guys perspective.
    My husband and I always play computer games together. In the beginning I did it to be supportive, but I really enjoy it now.

      That’s really nice! I have never been a huge video game person, but sometimes I get really into it and it can end up being really competitive and fun : )

    I am struggling HARD CORE with # 2 right now. What do you do when you’re absolutely in love with said “jerk” — you two are best friends… Yet you know nothing more can come of it. It feels like: my heart was ripped out of my chest, chopped up, thrown in a stew, that stew knocked over onto the floor, proceeded by a dog eating it off the floor, then shitting it out outside, only to have maggots and beetles eat it. BAH HA HA HA HA!

      Haha that was quite the description! : ) I would have to say that you should follow your heart and you will find someone (whether it be said friend or someone else) who will treat you right and make you happy : )

    Love this and that you included your boyfriend’s perspective! I’m sure my husband would completely agree and love #5! When we first met in high school, I had him hooked when I sat down to play video games with him 🙂
