How To Get Him To See A Chick Flick
I am a little confused why guys don't just bite the bullet and watch a chick flick with their lady. She would love it. And, would show appreciation in some way.
But, no one has ever accused us guys of being smart. Well, thanks to Cosmopolitan Magazine, here are some crafty ways to persuade your man to see a nice romantic movie.
Play down the mush factor
"Don't describe the film as a romance; call it a plot twisting drama," says Lorel Lindstrom, Ph.D., co-author of "Red Hot Relationships." Focus on the guy-friendly elements and he'll be more likely to bite.
Make an offer
Tell him you'll gladly hit the venue of his choice afterward. Lindstrom says that dangling the idea of a reward for making you happy ups his interest.
Keep your Hugh Jackman crush to yourself. "Men don't want to be compared to over-achieving big-screen versions of what a boyfriend should be," explains Lindstrom.
Bring it home
He'll be more likely to tolerate sappy scenes on the comfort of his own couch. Plus, it's easier to find a film at the video store that you'll both enjoy.
Good luck ladies!
