Inside the Mind of the Single Guy

For all you single ladies, have you ever walked into a room full of (or with at least one) single guys and wondered "what's he thinking?"?  Well I have.  Many times I have.

So let's see what the pros say is "inside the mind of the single guy"...
  • Real guys like real girls
    Just be yourself! 
    The first thing you need to know is that real guys like real girls. You shouldn’t pretend to be someone you’re not. Guys consider phoniness a huge turnoff.
  • Independent women rule
    For the single guy, the great thing about being single is his ability to have a full and rewarding life independent of a relationship; so it’s important for you to have the same. Be strong, independent, and fully in love with your own fabulous single life.
  • It's okay for you to make the first move
    There are single guys out there who might prefer that you make the first move. In fact, apparently a lot of guys report that they like it when a girl makes the first move. It lets them know she’s interested (and it’s a real confidence boost!). Just remember though, after you make the first move, leave the rest up to him. Guys want and need to be part of the delicate dating chase. If you do all the work, they’ll just stop chasing.
  • Physical intimacy means different things to different people
    One very crucial thing to know about some single guys is that sex and intimacy can be two different things. Sleeping with someone does not necessarily mean they’re looking to get serious with her. If you’re taking your physical relationship to the next level, you might want to have a conversation first to make sure your intentions and his are clearly stated. (FYI, I do not support this bullet point or what it is implying)
  • Most single guys are not marriage-minded
    The sooner you understand that most single men are not on the prowl for a wife, the easier it will be for you to relate to your date. Approach dating with the attitude that they just want to have fun and meet a variety of interesting people until they meet someone worth committing to.
  • Commitment is not a bad word
    When the right girl does come along, most single men are comfortable committing. By taking their time and really getting to know the women they date, guys again have the right idea. Take a page from their dating playbook and just have fun dating and relating! That way, when you do meet someone truly special, you’ll not only know he’s The One, but you'll be ready, willing, and able to commit because you’ve successfully played the field.
So there you have it.  Insight (cliff notes version) straight from the sourse - the mind of a single guy (via this article). Next time you go out lookin' for a guy, try these tips and see if they work.

Then report back to me because I'm uber curious!
