Does it make you happy to see your wife/girlfriend smile? It makes me feel pretty good and, on occasion, I may even get a special treat. (Dinner or even the remote control) Most of my friends try as hard as they can to do something special but, unfortunately, they're guys and guys don’t think like girls. So what ends up happening is their great idea ends up being rejected because instead of listening to the needs of the female, they listen to their own needs and think the female has to appreciate it, too. I have found that listening goes a long way. Women try to be subtle in conversation when they ask for something. They say, “This looks like something nice honey, I wish we could go,” when what they really mean is "I want to go." Unfortunately, men don’t know how to read between the lines and wonder why they may be sleeping on the couch in a couple days. Men do not realize that the argument that caused you to sleep on the couch had nothing to do with what was brought up, it was because you did not go. She didn’t forget, you did, and now you’re scratching your head wondering what the heck happened.
Listening goes a long way, so be attentive. I purchased a netbook for my girlfriend last Christmas, since she subtly asked for it a couple months before. After four or five months, she asked if there happened to be a small, cordless mouse that she could get to match the color of her netbook, since she felt it uncomfortable to constantly use the touch pad. Like a man, I had the fix, I had a cordless mouse in the closet and said "Here you go." She didn’t complain, but I could tell something was wrong a few days later; she was using the mouse, which was not only full sized and didn’t fit in her carrying case, but the mouse was left handed, too. (Man fix – “Here, I’ll switch the buttons for you”) I totally missed the part about it being small and matching the color of her netbook. For months, every time she used the netbook and I walked by, she didn’t say a word. What she did was the hum-hum thing, like she was clearing her throat. I didn’t get it, but that was her subtle way of showing disgust for my not listening. The problem is finally fixed. Choiix now has a small cordless mouse that not only fits in her netbook case but almost matches the color of her netbook. No more hum-hum, I now get a smile every time I walk by.
The Choiix Cruiser mouse is cordless, compact and comes in a variety of colors. The Choiix Cruiser mouse comes with its own mouse pad and stores the micro USB adapter conveniently inside the back of the mouse, so you don’t lose it when it’s not plugged into your netbook or notebook computer.
