Good morning, West Georgia!
Today, we talked about the 13 things guys shouldn’t say to girls, thanks to “The Dude” at CollegeCandy.com. A couple of these we couldn’t really say on-air for obvious reasons. There are things we all know are just “no-no’s” when it comes to how we talk to others. Of course, some are more obvious and generalized while others are very specific, a case by case basis if you will. And yet…some people just don’t know when to remove their foot from their mouth! A few might be a bit obvious side and some a bit more obscure, but they all boil down to the same thing: These things must never be uttered by any man to any woman under any circumstances.
Just to be fair and balanced (because that’s just how we are), we also talked about the 12 things you should NEVER say to guys, courtesy of “The Dude” at CollegeCandy.com. We’re driving down a two-way street when it comes to “stuff” you shouldn’t say. Now, to be fair, there are similarities to what a lot of guys are sensitive about and to what a lot of women are sensitive about. However, there are some differences. Have you ever realized you said something you shouldn’t have to your boy?
