Stop wanging my girly thoughts

News flash for the dudes out there, at least the straight ones: Your significant other is a girl. That means that, no matter how good she is with a chainsaw or a sewing machine, a front-end loader or a Kitchen-Aid, chances are she has girly thoughts. And because she likes you, she probably has some of these girly thoughts about you.

Because visual aids are so useful, I will offer an infographic of what girly thoughts look like:

That's right: hearts, rainbows, unicorns, glitter. You name it. A woman's girly thoughts are often accompanied by sighs and sweet, fluffy daydreams about holding hands, soft kisses and cuddling. Norah Jones is optional background music.

Guys, we throw out clues that we are having these thoughts. Phrases like, "I was thinking about you," or "I want to feel you close to me" are dead giveaways. If accompanied by a shy smile, pay attention. And do not, I repeat, DO NOT, wang our girly thoughts.

What do I mean, you ask? Let me demonstrate with a simple phone conversation in which a woman calls her beloved in the afternoon:

Man: Hey, what's up?
Woman: Not much, just wanted to say, "hi."
Man: Hi
Woman: I was thinking about you today.
Man (Beavis and/or Butthead start laughing in his head "huhuhuhuhuhuh."): Oh you WERE, were you? What were you thinking?
Woman (still oblivious due to pink fluffy thoughts): I was just thinking about you, and about how much I like being near you.
Man (Beavis screeching in his head "We're gonna SCORE!"): Huh-huh-huhuhuhuh. You wanna have sex tonight, don't you?

That boys, is wanging our girly thoughts. It's taking our pink fluffy, sigh-laden romantic thoughts and blowing them into oblivion with your heat-seeking missiles. Not OK.
