|Why don't guys take me seriously?|
Well, obviously nothing says, "well-adjusted and low-maintenance," like soliciting advice for a girlfriend image campaign. Let's get started.
In relationships, as in life, looks are everything. You should dress in a manner that allows some part of your undergarments to show at all times, that way your guy will be reminded that you don't always wear clothes, and, in fact, your clothes could fall off you at any moment, because you are too distracted by your lack of drama to worry about them. So that people know you are wielding your feminine wiles ironically, and not buying into traditional relationship gender roles, wear at least one article of clothing that is an unfeminine non sequitur, like a hard hat.
Next, repeatedly tell the guy how much you like sex and having sex and how he can't handle all the sex you want to have. You should preferably do this in public, like on a crowded bus, where people can't possibly avoid thinking about how lucky your guy is to have a girlfriend who is clearly so enamored with amorous encounters. Don't forget to punctuate your erotic monologue with pressured, nervous laughter, the siren song of seductive women throughout history.
Finally, to prove how interesting you are, tell several long, pointless stories involving mutual friends. Maybe recount the time you all went to Trevor's house, but then Trevor wasn't there, so then you went for pizza instead. Guys are always interested in the day-to-day activities of others, particularly when there is no perceivable conflict that would require them to join the conversation with a useful suggestion. What? Stacy didn't text you until after Brianna had already called? Definitely close with that. You have to leave him wanting more.
Whatever you do, don't be sarcastic. That is such a turn-off. Now, for the love of all that is holy, both of you get off the bus.
