Most people think that Mondays suck because someone doesn’t like their job or they don’t want to go back to work. I’m pretty sure that’s not the reason at all. The reason is weekends can be incredibly fun, incredibly busy. There’s usually running around, alcohol and just good times. So on Monday morning when that alarm clock goes off and she’s thinking about the dress she wore or the good times, all she wants to do is lie down and rest.
Not because she hates Monday but because she’s coming off that weekend high. So whether you’re her boyfriend, her husband or just a guy that wants to be more here are some tips to make that Monday go by just a little bit faster. Tips to make her Monday just a little bit better.
Five- Smart phones make being romantic and chivalrous so much easier in the 21st century. Women love food and what do they love more than food? Free food. I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again, romance isn’t about how much money you spend, it’s about the impact of the gesture. A ten dollar gift card to Starbucks or Chik Fil A sent to her phone at 4am so she gets it as soon as she wakes up is going to make Monday so much more enjoyable for her.
Four- Being silly takes the edge off not just Mondays but any day if the week. I’m not talking dressing like a clown or being a joke but just making her laugh. A funny text, a funny story. Laughter is good for the soul.
Three- Take her to lunch. Even if she tells you my Monday is crazy and I can’t leave, just bring her lunch. Drop it off with a hug, a short note reminding her she’s the truth and let her go back inside. While she’s sitting at her desk rubbing her eyes she’s going to smile knowing you care.
Two- Gossip. Now I know it isn’t tactful for a man to gossip but women love a good story. Calling her and telling her about a co-workers affair or a fight someone had over the weekend. It’s like a soap opera but real life. Conversation rules the nation!
One- Let her know you’re cooking dinner. Her favorite meal or a version of it. Ask her to stop and get wine so she feels involved.
Bonus: Tell her you love her but only if you mean it.
