Girls, we understand that you have expectations from your relationship.
You wish your boyfriend can sweet talk you when you’re down, whisper sweet nothings into your ear when you’re cuddling on the couch and be romantic.
I’m pretty sure you know by now not every guy is like that.
Sometimes, what we think is sweet in our mind comes out sounding, well, unsweet. For example, you’re my sweet little poo-poo. ‘Nuff said.
But it’s okay because here are 6 funny but true reasons why a guy who can’t sweet talk to save his life is possibly the best boyfriend ever.
1. He can’t sweet talk other girls
Let’s face it, sweet talking gets you girls. If he can charm you, he sure as hell can charm other women too. In Mandarin, we call sweet talkers 口花花, and you know what they call players? 花花公子.
So as far as you’re concerned, you should be happy no one will be interested in your “territory”.
Unless he’s incredibly attractive, then it can’t be helped.
2. He makes up for it by being sweet in his actions
Guys want their girlfriends to be impressed with them, no matter whether we say it out or not. Nothing makes us feel better about ourselves than managing to make you smile.
And to be honest, even if he can’t tell you something sweet that goes along the line of I miss you, he’ll send you home because he misses you. Actions speak louder than words after all.
3. You don’t have to sweet talk him too
I mean, an eye for an eye, right? If he doesn’t sweet talk you, there’s no reason why he’ll expect you to do it too, right?
Of course, if he’s sweet in his actions, you’ll have to be too. A relationship which takes lesser effort to maintain lasts longer after all.
4. You Always Get the Truth
If you’re fat, he’ll tell you that you’re fat.
No more beating around the bush, offering an apple and all that.
If you want a partner to be 100% honest with you, chances are you’ll find it in a guy who can’t sweet talk his way out of trouble. Oh, but the delivery might hurt. #JustSaying
5. He Has Other Awesome Qualities
Sweet talking is one of the easiest ways to catch a girl’s heart. Take that away and you’ll have a much harder time trying to get hitched.
So if your boyfriend, who isn’t able to steal your heart away with his conversational skills, still managed to snag you, the quality that attracted you to him must’ve been pretty awesome.
6. He’ll Try His Best to Make You Happy
Because he has a hard time sweet talking girls, he knows you love him for his other qualities. This makes him treasure you even more. And of course, since he has a hard time sweet-talking his way out of trouble, he’ll try not to get into hot soup in the first place.
So it’s all good.
