Fairy tales have given us so many ideas about how girls should be treated. How the boys are supposed to give them roses on Valentine’s Day, sing them to sleep every night, kiss them in the pouring rain.

Don’t nag! Boys hate it when girls rant and complain. You’re wrong if you’re expecting him to humble himself while you berate him to no end. It’s an attack on his ego, so when there’s an issue you want to bring up, there are lots of ways to talk about it calmly, and have a discussion about it. Let him say his part.

Just as you’d want him to listen to you, you have to do the same for him. Cutting him off or interrupting him will hurt him more than you think; some guys will think you’re just not that interested in what they have to...
