  1. now I am curious..does this mean “feminine” or “only feminine”

    xx. Bags – actually this goes with no 2

  5. ok i can check only 3 or 4 out of these. what to do?

    A Cynic in Wonderlands last idea: Misadventures of the married kind – III: This little DeeGee went to the market….

  6. @ Aditya: Heh. I’ve written about ‘Communal looing’ before. And men do window-shopping too!! My dad can spend hours in a car showroom or a Bata store!

    @ Cynic: Fret over it. Call your girlfriends and ask, “Do you think he’ll notice?”. Get acne over it. Eat too much chocolate. And finally fall asleep.

  7. hehehehehe…enjoyed this post 🙂

    Some more could be
    Getting emotional over subtle, can’t be pin-pointed (or understood by men) but whole BIG issues
    Giggly pujama parties with just all kinds of chocolate and cheesecake for food
    Checking out other women walking into the party/store/restaurant
    Swinging between liking and not liking the new haircut!

  12. The boy needs to buy you the best Victoria’s Secret lingerie ever! because you deserve it

  13. You need to do a post on lingerie so men know what kind of lingerie woman like .

    • @ideafan: I think lingerie exists primarily for male pleasure. And no, I am not going to do a post about that. This is not a fashion/sleaze blog.
