Guys ask me all the time, “do girls act ditzy on purpose?” Although I’m not sure if it is on purpose, I do know that some girls do not act up to their potential. Some girls may be afraid to say something wrong or embarrassing, so they retreat to acting like they really don’t know anything. In reality, they do. Others may think that guys prefer to be the “intellectual” one in the partnership, and they therefore must act “dumb.” I’m here to say that neither of these claims are valid.
Don’t be afraid to say something wrong or embarrassing. Guys like girls who will talk to them. Really talk. “I like a girl I can have a real conversation with,” one guy said. Don’t worry about being wrong. Being able to talk from the heart makes your more genuine, more real. Guys like that.
“Others will look down on you if you act ditzy on purpose,” I was told. Clearly guys don’t dig the ditzy act, and they don’t think others do either. “I would rather spend time with someone who will be herself.” You are the most attractive when you act like yourself. Forget pretending to be someone you’re not. Guys don’t like it, and you shouldn’t either.
Don’t belittle yourself for a guy. Or for anyone. Show off how smart, quick, and witty you are. He’ll like you all the more for it.
“Be yourself. That’s the bottom line.” Hey, he said it, not me. Although I do agree.
Being yourself is your best act.
