I had some extra time at work and found this blog.

It had a long list entitled "How to Love a Girl." It made me think of the ear doctor and I thought I'd share my thoughts with you (him). Next to each way suggested on the list of "How to love a girl" I've listed in parenthesis how he fulfills it. So here goes:

Tell her you think she's cool (He does this all the time)
Tell her why you think she's so smart (He's mentioned that he thinks I'm a better student that he is just because of the stories I've told him)
Tell her she's beautiful (Framed Note)
Tell her she's gorgeous (First email he ever sent me)
Smell her hair (Asked me why I smelled so good the other day)
Talk to her in movie theaters (this is all we ever do)
Tell her she's perfect (He doesn't do this, but I like that. It feels real)
Pick her up and pretend you're going to throw her in the river; she'll scream and fight you but secretly, she'll love it. (He play fights with me all the time and I do like it)
Hold her hand and skip (In public, at the mall)
Hold her hand and run (I don't like to run)
Just hold her hand (always does)
Pick flowers from other people's gardens and give them to her (We haven't been dating when the flowers are in bloom yet)
Tell her she looks pretty (everytime I dress up to go out)
Let her pay for stuff if she wants to but pay most of the time (he is PERFECT at this)
Introduce her to your friends as "that girl you talk about ALL the time." (Hasn't done this)
Sit in the park and talk to her (It's been too cold)
Take her to the library, and playgrounds, and train stations (I don't think there is a train station around)
Tell her dirty jokes (he's too good for that)
Tell her stupid jokes (check)
Write poems about her (I don't think he's much of a creative writer...although I could be wrong)
Just walk around with her (always)
Throw pebbles at her window at night (snowballs)
When she starts swearing at you, tell her you love her (I think I'd poke him in the eye if he did this)
Take her to shows of bands she's never heard of (not yet)
Hold her hand when she's sleeping (Yep)
Let her fall asleep in your arms (more than he'd like to)
Call her (we're all about text messaging)
Call her back if she calls you (always)
Sing to her, no matter how bad you are (Does car singing count?)
Carve your names into a tree (This pisses me off so I'd never want him to do it)
Get her mad, then kiss her (Again, I don't know how well that would go over)
Tell her she's The Best Thing That Has Ever Happened To You (almost a direct quote)
Refer to her as "love" often (cheesy...he calls me beautiful sometimes)
Give her piggy-back rides (or bull rides)
Whenever she wants to kiss you or hug you - when you guys are standing up - pick her up so she can (I'm tall enough, so he doesn't have to)
Give her space if she needs it (he's working on it)
Push her on swings (he would if there were any swings around)
Make up pet names for her, but cool ones, not sappy ones (hasn't done this yet but it's only a matter of time)
Tell her she's funny. And weird. And silly. (too often to count)
Lend her your cds (He has an ipod and I don't so this doesn't really work...but I bet he would.)
Use nerdy pick-up lines on her (He's all about being dorky)
ENCOURAGE HER AND HER DREAMS (Does an amazing job of supporting me with my grad school apps, even though he doesn't want me to go)
Hold her until she gets uncomfortable (He's the best at this)
Make sure she knows you love her. No matter what (No doubt in my mind)
When she can't sleep, spoon and tell her a story (I can't ever not sleep)
Read what she writes (He checks this blog daily)
Write letters to her (they're more like notes)
If she asks you to go to a show with her, go, even if it means a 5 hour train trip (I'm sure he'd do this...he'd even give up going camping with the boyz for me)
Watch her fav girly movie with her, as many times as she wants to see it. With her in your lap (Anne of Green Gables anyone?)
Take her to fun shops, and let her take you to some (we haven't been shopping together because I'm poor and shopping without buying anything depresses me)
Try to play guitar, just for her, even if you are horrible (he plays the piano instead)
Listen to all the bands she mentions (Incubus)
Don't tell her that her favorite bands suck (he's never done this)
When she's sad, hang out with her or stay on the phone with her, even if she's not saying anything (check)
Buy her ice cream (He got my favorite when I went out to meet his folks)
Look into her eyes (my favorite)
Slow dance with her, even if the music is fast (we are two dancin fools)
Kiss her in the rain (does the snow count?)
When you fall in love with her, tell her (check)

It is amazing how we are so different and so the same! It's great to be your sister!

Interesting list. I especially like "Tell her dirty jokes" and "Get her mad and then kiss her." Like you said, these would probably be better put on a list "How NOT to treat a girl."

Anyway, interesting blog - I'll have to keep visiting.
