Would You Rather Spend A Day At A Spa…….Or Win An Argument?
Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and men everywhere are getting nervous. Girls, we have a hard time with Christmas & Valentine’s Day. Sometimes it seems like coming up with a good gift is a matter of life & death.
I learned a long time ago that women want & expect things they don’t ask for. We guys are somehow supposed to just “know.” We don’t. Therein lies the problem. A British supermarket chain called Sainsbury’s recently commissioned a survey to find out what women want most.
Here’s the top 10….
#1.) Cuddling with their partner.
#2.) Comfortable underwear.
#3.) Someone telling them they’ve lost weight.
#4.) Making someone ELSE happy by giving them a present.
#5.) Sexy underwear: Which finished three spots BELOW comfortable underwear.
#6.) Finding a bargain.
#7.) Getting flowers.
#8.) Getting a present: Which finished four spots BELOW giving a present.
#9.) Being told she looks younger than she really is.
#10.) Getting a compliment from a stranger about how she looks.
I can’t speak for other men, but I don’t see any big surprises on that list. The survey went on to list a top 50, and some of the other entries actually did surprise me. I found a couple things on this list a little troubling.
They would rather win an ARGUMENT . . . # 28 . . . than have a day at a spa, #31!
Maybe I’m being obtuse, but it’s hard for me to understand why conflict would be regarded as a more favorable experience than a day of pampering and relaxation.
