Translation for Men
When you are watching Beauty and the Geek with your chick, do not turn to her and say "You could be on this show as either one hon--you would definitely win".
Your brain: I'm telling her that she is hot and really smart. I rock; I am so getting laid.
Her brain: So he's saying that I could be a pretty girl who gets lost in her own bathroom because she's so dumb, or I could be the really ugly and socially inept dork. Oh, this is just like the time he said he thought (insert actress name here) was cute. I bet she didn't even graduate high school. Of course he likes pretty-dumb girls like (insert ex-girlfriend's name from 10-years ago here). He knows how sensitive I am about being a dork--why does he bring it up...doesn't he get me at all? Oh, and I never did tell him that it wasn't nice to say his mom's stuffed-shells were the best he's ever tasted. It will be a cold day in hell before I slave in the kitchen making homemade pasta and sauce for him. That's it--No sex for him.
Study, learn, and don't do it again.
