You Must be Getting Your Period: The average menstrual cycle lasts between 3-5 days, so shame any one of you who pull the hormonal card the whole month through. Yes women’s emotions may be heightened during certain key times, but there is no such thing as being too sensitive. If you don’t believe us, just take one look at corporate America in the past two years.† The recent financial crisis has proven that those allegedly female qualities, like being intuitive, insightful and compassionate, are more valuable in business than ever before. Now there’s one to grow on.
You Look Fine: There is nothing worse than being told you are mediocre and that’s what this four letter word insinuates. If you really want to compliment a woman, raise the bar a little and be specific about what it is that you love about her. “That dress makes your back look perfect,” “the color highlights your eyes,” or “those boots show off your incredible legs.” Of course, if that is not the case, be honest (gently) with us and not fearful of our reaction. Good or bad, both are better to us women than being plain, old and average.
