How to be a Good Girlfriend: Learning When to Say Nothing
September 10, 2009 at 1:24 pm 0
I’m not sure that I’m a good girlfriend all of the time…I do have my indecisive, cranky and grumbly moments, but most of the time I think I do a good job of being a girlfriend.

One little trick I learned to be a good girlfriend – sometimes the best thing to say is nothing at all. Like when your boyfriend is trying to do something and he can’t figure it out, that's a good time to keep quiet. It happened to me in Italy. I guess the way you fill up a car with gas is a little different than in North America, and it got a tad frustrating for him…I could see my boyfriends face looking more and more grumpy, he was scratching his head, he didn’t want the other people to help him out, he wasn’t sure how to get the money in the machine…. So instead of standing over him and asking him what was wrong I found my own fun…and started taking pictures of nearby cherry trees. It worked wonders. Five minutes later the car was filled with gas, the furrow in his brow was gone and we were on our way. Sometimes saying nothing is the best thing you can do.
