I think most women will agree with me when I say, men just don’t get it. When it comes to jewelry that is. Most of you guys can shower in 10 min, run three brush strokes through your hair, put on the closest pants and shirt near you and walk out the door. For woman, there’s and arduous and inexplicable ritual that we bind ourselves to every morning. You would too, if your appearance were judged the major part of every day. So, it’s a lot of time an effort put onto our appearance before even walking out the front door. I won’t go into the various steps woman go through because it would never end (and you wouldn’t quite understand why we do it), but what I’m going to give you is a little insight on how we choose our earrings for the day. Of course, all women are different when it comes to personality and style so before you step foot into any jewelry store read carefully!
Step 1: Ask yourself questions.
When you take her out does she wear earrings? Are they big noticeable hoop earrings or small studs? You have to know at least a little bit about her style before buying her any type of jewelry. The last thing you want to do is make her look like Nikki Minaj when her style is more simple, like Reese Witherspoon’s. This will help you narrow down the size and style.
Step 2: Pay attention
When you two go to the mall/stores, follow her into the jewelry store and watch what she looks at. Point out a few various pieces and listen to which type of style, color and size she likes. This is probably the best way to get her something she will actually wear and like.
Step 3: What’s the occasion.
Did you mess up? Do you want to surprise her? Is it her birthday or an Anniversary? A lot of this depends on her taste in jewelry, but it may be necessary to spend a little bit more in certain situations. If you messed up bad you might want to work overtime because to make her happy again you have to cough up some dough. If you plan to surprise her just because, I applaud you! What a great gesture! Make it something from the heart. The more thought that goes in to it, better.
You don’t have to spend too much but don’t be cheap. If it’s for her birthday or anniversary I hope you’re not reading this the day of. If you are… good luck (and finish this article before you run to the store)!
Step 4: Stepping into the store
You still might not have a grasp on exactly what she likes, so to be safe; do these things.
- Ask the sales woman to help you for a second opinion.
- Take like a few (maybe 5) recent pictures of her to show the lady how she usually dresses, so that she has a better idea of the type of girl you’re dating.
- Go to 3 different stores.
- Take one of her good friends.
- When in doubt, don’t do it! You don’t want to make the bigger mistake of getting her the bad gift.
All of these steps WILL hopefully help bring you a little closer to being the most thoughtful boyfriend ever, and help you sneak out to watch Sunday football with the boys!
