    18 Secrets Guys Wish You Knew

    It's funny, men and women have different ways of staying close. I'm thinking it's important to know what your guy or gal might be thinking as ways that matter to them on being close.

    Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.

    Hi, Chrissy

    Its so true! Guys hate all that mushy stuff, saying i love you five tiems a day, just so she knows. Guys, me included, like to do things to show our love. Like taking out the trash, or doing the dishes, especially when she is tired.

    I don't know why its so hard for some men to say those words? Whats the big deal? Hmmm, makes me wonder?

    Thanks, Chrissy!
