Congratulations! So, you have a girlfriend now which you adore and get along really well. Lucky you! But, just a fair warning, it’s not always sunshine and rainbows! With girlfriends come great obstacles and mild annoyances.
That’s why we came up with this list of problems every Malaysian boyfriend can relate to. And if you are someone’s girlfriend, take note and let your guy relax a little, lah!
1. Getting the cold shoulder for not answering texts or calls promptly
Sure, if you have a totally valid reason for not answering, you may still be able to talk your way out of this one. If not, be prepared to beg for your girl’s forgiveness! We sometimes can’t help it when we’re too focused on our DOTA game. Rank match ok!
2. Waiting for your girlfriend to get ready
You will definitely know by now that when a girl says “five minutes”, you have plenty of time to kill. So watch a movie, maybe two… what time did she say she’d be ready again?
3. When your girlfriend compares you to a movie character or their ‘oppa’ in K-dramas
Every guy knows this feeling all too well, especially when you watch her favourite Korean drama series with her.
When an oppa on the show does something ridiculously romantic, she gives you that look. Then, she will say, “Why you not like that, one?! You’re SO not romantic!”
4. Losing every argument you two ever had
Let’s be honest here. Whenever there’s a fight, girls are much better at it because 1. their memory is much more superior than ours (they’d remember what happened 2 years 54 minutes and 20 seconds ago and blast it all back at you).
Plus, whenever you think you’re about to win, they pull out the ultimate weapon of theirs: tears.
See what we mean?!
5. Forgetting important dates
Never, ever forget special dates like her birthday, your anniversary and Valentine’s Day! Unless you have a death wish! You better answer correctly whenever she asks you, ” Sayang, do you remember what day is it today?”
6. …Which means you didn’t prepare any presents
Once you’ve realised your inevitable doom because you forgot that oh-so-important date, this second question will put the final nail in your coffin; “Sayang, where’s my present?”
This question is sure to strike fear into your heart, especially when you haven’t gotten her anything because you forgot!
7. Complaining that you don’t bring her to ‘atas’ places anymore
We get it, the initial excitement from the honeymoon period has dwindled away. But, that doesn’t mean you should stop going to fancy places and pampering your girl! Remember to always keep the spark alive!
8. Feeling the burn in your wallet when there are special occasions
So you make an effort to bring her to the fanciest restaurants and venues because you don’t want to be labelled as kedekut. But, your bank account isn’t looking too good as a result. Guess it’s instant noodles everyday, then!
OR!!! Here’s a super hack: Just treat her to the same good food, at a good place, but for a much discounted price. Boyfriend hacks to saving money man!
