The Easiest Ways For Your Boyfriend To Earn Brownie Points

Men think we’re confusing, but it isn’t all that hard to make our day. After all, we enjoy the simple things in life. To please us, you just has to show us that you care. Here are the easiest ways for any boyfriend to earn brownie points:

  1. Post flattering photos of us online. We want you to brag about us. As long as the pictures you post of us on Facebook are cute, we’re going to be happy you’re showing us off to all of your friends.
  2. Randomly go down on us. When you’re finished, don’t ask us to return the favor or try to have sex with us. Just let us enjoy our orgasm and then tell us to go back to whatever we were doing.
  3. Bring us breakfast in bed. The only thing better than getting woken up with oral is getting woken up with bacon. If the dishes are already clean after we finish eating, you’ll get even more brownie points.
  4. Spend one-on-one time with our parents. We’re happy whenever you agree to spend the evening at dinner with our family, but it would be even better for you to go to brunch with our mom or help our dad around the house while we’re somewhere else entirely.
  5. Take us out on unexpected dates. Don’t take us to the same place we’ve been going every weekend for the past six months. Surprise us with tickets to a concert or reservations at a new restaurant.
  6. Buy us cheap little gifts. Buy our favorite candy from the store or pick a flower out of the grass. We’d rather get tiny presents all the time than huge presents on special occasions.
  7. Give us frequent massages. It’s rare to receive a massage that doesn’t lead to sex. If you rub our back or our feet without an ulterior motive, we’ll love you forever.
  8. Tell us you love us in detail. Instead of saying those three little words out of habit, actually sit us down, look us in the eyes, and tell us how much you love us. It never hurts to explain why you feel that way.
  9. Leave us mushy notes. You don’t have to write epic poems about your burning love for us. Just scribble “I love you” onto a napkin, toss it in our bagged lunch, and you’re golden.
  10. Bake us actual brownies. Dinner would be great, but dessert is even better. If you spoil us with something fresh out of the oven, then we’ll brag about you to all of our friends.
