Guys spend a lot of time trying to get women to like them. In fact, some guys spend pretty much all of their time trying to get women to like them. So it’s a pretty odd thing when there’s a woman out there that tries to get a guy to like her back, too.
But the thing is, a lot of women are crazy. I know me saying that is sort of like saying that there’s the sun in the sky; it’s not particularly groundbreaking to say something of that nature. Everyone knows a lot of women are totally nuts. But the thing is guys, even those guys that are totally desperate, get turned off by a woman that’s totally crazy. It’s just the way it is. Sure, there’s the occasional guy that likes hanging out with crazy women. In fact, I’ve even been accused of being one of those myself, but the fact of the matter is even I got tired of crazy chicks after a while. They’re just way too much to deal with.
What follows is a list of the insane things that women try to do when they like a guy and want that particular guy to like them back. Some of them might be considered kind of cute, but most of them are totally ridiculous and dare I say, completely crazy.
Here are 15 crazy things women do to make you like them.
15. Fake a Pregnancy
We might as well start out with a really good one. Since the very beginning of time, this one has been used by a certain class of totally crazy women to try and ensnare a man. Of course, this is totally wrong, and only complete psychos ever do this, but it still happens every single day. A woman thinks you don’t like her as much as she likes you, so she just tells you that she’s pregnant. Of course, she’ll have to deal with the ramifications of that later on; she’ll have to lie again and say that she lost the baby, but complete lunatics don’t usually go that far ahead with things in their thought process. This one is just so totally wrong that I don’t even need to explain why. Run like crazy if this ever happens to you.
14. Lying About Her Age
This could go either way. It could potentially be an older woman who’s lying to try and get you to be attracted to her but thinks that she’s too old for you, but it’s much more likely to be a younger woman, say, even one that’s underage, trying to tell you that she’s old enough to hang out with you. This one is actually dangerous, as we all know there are laws against going out with underage women, and rightfully so. Just like the pregnancy one, an underage girl lying about being an adult is someone to totally run away from. Of course, if she’s older, then it’s not that big a deal; it’s just kind of pathetic. But I have to be honest: I know a lot of people that would totally be into hanging out with an older pathetic woman. No joke.
13. Mess With Your Current Girlfriend
Okay, so this one takes it to another level. As opposed to you being a single guy on the prowl, you’re in a relationship. Sometimes, this happens for no reason at all; the woman is just totally into you. But more often, it’s because you slipped up and had an affair, and the woman decided that she wants to have you. The only problem is your pesky girlfriend. This one just doesn’t get the whole “affair” thing at all. The whole point is that it’s supposed to be a secret; her messing around with your girlfriend was not part of the plan at all. This type of women is totally scary and should be avoided at all costs. In fact, you’re probably going to have to blow it up and just tell your girlfriend yourself what has been going on just to get rid of the crazy chick’s ammunition.
12. Pretend She Likes What You Like
This one is much less scary than most on this list, but it’s still totally pathetic. A lot of guys actually like it when a woman is like this. Basically, no matter what you’re into, she pretends that she’s into it, too. So if you’re totally into World of Warcraft, she’s going to be totally into Worlds of Warcraft; if you like going to the gym, she likes going to the gym; if you party all the time, so does she; if you don’t party at all, then she doesn’t either. You get the point. All she exists to do is please you and make you happy. Now, this sounds fun at first, believe me, but as someone who was in a relationship with one of these types, I have to say, it’s not as cool as it sounds, and in fact, it really is more than a little bit creepy.
11. Try To Get Tight With Your Family
This one usually takes a little while, but sometimes, it starts almost right away. A woman, even a crazy one, knows that getting in tight with the family is where it’s at when it comes to snaring a guy. I mean, if the family likes you, then it’s going to be a lot harder for you to get rid of her, and it supposedly shows you how much she’s marriage material and all of that. This is okay if it happens naturally, if it’s just something that goes down in the course of a relationship. But if she’s all about meeting your family, and when she does meet them, she bends over backward to get in tight with them, it’s a pretty huge warning sign of what a complete and total nut job she may be. In fact, who am I kidding? She’s a nutjob.
10. Show Up Where You Work
Depending on your scene and how desperate you are for a girlfriend, this might actually seem kind of cute. Here’s a pro tip: It isn’t. If you’re at work doing your thing, and all of a sudden, this chick you’ve been hanging out with shows up just to say hi, this is a huge warning sign. At the very least, you’re hanging out with someone that doesn’t get boundaries at all, and at the most, you’re hanging out with someone who’s showing the tendencies of being a stalker. Do you want to go out with a stalker? Actually, some of you probably shouldn’t answer that; you just want anyone to give you attention. The bottom line on this is that it’s not cool for a woman to just show up at your place of employment without asking you if it’s cool.
9. Pretending She’s Totally Into Doing It
This, of course, is a total big one. How many times have you hung out with a chick for a period of weeks, months, or in some cases, even a few years, and had the sex be totally awesome, then after a period of time, have it just almost totally stop? Of course, in some cases, this is just natural, but in many others, the woman has just been pretending she was really into doing it with you, just until she got to the point that she could feel safe, and once she did, her true self came out. Unfortunately for you, her true self apparently is someone who doesn’t want to do it with you, and I mean she doesn’t want to do it with you at all. Well, at least you had a good time for a little while before you realized that you were getting played.
8. Acting Helpless
Alright, so there are some women out there who actually are totally helpless. You probably shouldn’t be attracted to women like that, but I can tell you already that a lot of guys are. There’s another type of woman, though, that’s not helpless but totally pretends to be that way to get your affection. You might say to yourself, “Why would a guy want to go out with someone that’s totally helpless?” and you would be right to think this. With that said, a lot of guys are totally into such things, and there are a lot of women that are more than willing to exploit it. This pairing is not usually one that works out too well when it comes to men and women as the guy that’s into protecting helpless women is usually kind of scary.
7. Pretending To Be Dumb
This one has a lot to do with the pretending to be helpless one, but there’s a subtle difference. While the fake helpless girl attempts to take advantage of a guy that’s trying to be all macho and come to her aid, the fake dumb girl is a whole other animal. This type of chick pretends to be dumb because she knows the guy she’s into actually likes that. Think about that for a moment. What kind of guy would actually want to date a woman that was really dumb, and then think about what kind of girl would know that about a guy and would want to be the girl for him? Both of these types of people are out there. If you run into either one of them, then it might be best to turn around and run the other way as fast as possible.
6. Getting Into Your Sports Teams
I had this girlfriend once. She was from San Francisco; I live in Maine. She came out for a while to hang out with me. It didn’t work out for a variety of reasons. One of them was that I didn’t like her a whole lot; another one of them was that she’s totally crazy. But I digress. She was a big sports fan and was really into the San Francisco Giants and the Golden State Warriors, but as soon as she gets out to where I am, she’s all into the Red Sox and the Celtics. She even bought a Big Papi shirt to wear. Okay, so let’s be honest: this is totally lame. Am I looking for someone who just wants to agree with me about everything, or do I want someone who has her own perspective? You don’t have to answer that.
5. Partying More
This type of women is particularly pathetic. This is not to say that all guys like to party a lot. The fact of the matter is, most guys don’t like to party much at all. With all of that said, though, there are a lot of guys that do like to party a lot, and there are a lot of women who try to fit in with them. To do so, they end up drinking a ton, and maybe even doing drugs to try and show how cool they are, so they can hang with the guy that they’re totally into. This never works out. For one, if someone doesn’t party too much and then tries to do so, it usually has disastrous results. For another, just like any of the other things on this list, it never works out in the long term if someone’s being fake and pretending to be someone they’re not.
4. Hiding Her True Feelings
A lot of women do this, and I mean they do this all the time, not just when they first meet you. They play it all off like they’re into what you’re doing or that the way that you live your life doesn’t bother them, when in reality, they’re totally bugging out about what you think and the way you act all the time. But they don’t tell you. And why is that, you might wonder? Well, they don’t want you to know what they really think because that might cause some sort of stress, or cause some sort of issue long term. Obviously, this is not a smart way to think about things. Being fake never works out in the long term. Sadly these types of women don’t get this because they tend to be fake all of the time, so how would they know?
3. Pretending She Likes Your Friends
This is another one that only lasts for a little while and never plays out long term. Of course, if a woman actually likes your friends, then it’s not any sort of real issue, but let’s face it: who would ever really like your friends? All in all, they’re just a bunch of total idiots; there’s no reason that anyone would like them, so you’re instantly suspicious of any woman that might say that she does. But still, a woman of this nature is going to go on and on about how your friends are oh-so-cool and attempt to hang out with you and them as much as possible, even though, in reality, she can’t stand any of them. Once you hang out for a while, you get to know the real truth: she can’t stand any of your friends, and how could she? They’re awful.
2. Laughing at Your Jokes
Okay, so sure, you’re pretty funny. All of your friends say so, and you know you are, too. But you aren’t a stand-up comedian, and let’s face it: sometimes your jokes kind of fall flat. Not to the chick you’re hanging out with, though. She’s all about how funny you are. In fact, she acts like she’s going out with Dave Chappelle when she’s around you. Everything that you say, she totally busts a gut over, and she makes a huge point to tell you how funny you are, and I mean, she does this constantly. This is all kind of charming, really, except for the fact that she’s being totally fake. If she’s fake in this way, she’s going to be fake in all sorts of ways; there’s simply no doubt about it. And come on, who wants to deal with that?
1. Forgetting Something at Your Place
This is an oldie, but without a doubt, a goodie: the woman who leaves something at your place. Sometimes, you might hook up with someone and bring them home only to notice that they left something behind. It may be a coat, or a scarf, or who knows? Maybe even some earrings. This might seem like an accident, but it totally is not. She left something there on purpose, all so she can come back and get it later. Women can be tricky, you know. You may have thought that guys were the ones that were the tricky ones, but no. Guys are more just straightforward players. Women are, without a doubt, the more tricky of the two.
