OK, that's a good thing for you beginners to know, but now comes the advanced course for the brave.
- Fine~Smile big and kiss her while telling her that it's nice that we can see eye to eye on things this trivial. Leaves her stewing in her juices and wondering what went wrong.
- Nothing~Pat her on the butt and say, "That's my girl!" and walk away smiling. If she doesn't explode right there, you're gold. If she loses it, you'll find out pretty damned quick what was wrong.
- Go Ahead~See "Fine"
- Whatever~"I know it bothers you and I love and respect your feelings, but I'm happy that you've decided not to make this an issue." I guarantee that she will clear things up at this point.
- That's OK~"I knew it would be. I love you too!" Turn and walk away quickly.
WOW!~This one is a double edged sword. You need to reinforce the idea that you are that stupid and are either blissfully unaware of it or perfectly willing to accept it AND are proud of yourself. Look at her with love and tenderness and tell her, "I know, I am that great/nice/special/whatever and you're lucky I'm in your life. I feel the same about you." Walk away whistling like you're completely unaware that you've stunned her into silence.
DISCLAIMER: This is only a temporary solution to these 6 words or phrases. Women are smart and they network well, so you need to be wary and talk among your smarter friends
, or network yourself. This is an ever evolving process and if you let your guard down, they will win. You also need to be aware of the fact that they will withhold sex as a tool to weaken your defenses, but you have to realize that they have needs that have to be fulfilled too, like seeing your paycheck deposited in the joint account or that weekly/monthly night out with other friends. You need to realize that everything in a marriage is negotiable in some way.
