Guys, What's the Most Feminine Thing You Do?
Here's a question, guys: What's the most feminine thing you do? Some of the best answers we've heard are a guy who loves shopping and gets upset when no one notices his new clothes . . . a guy who has such long, thick eyelashes that women always tell him they're jealous . . . and a 6-foot-2 guy who skips to work in his suit every day because it makes him feel like he's in a musical.
1. I have long, thick eyelashes. Women tell me all the time they're jealous of them.
2. I truly love shopping for clothes. And if I wear a new shirt to work and no one notices, it bums me out.
3. I am 6-foot-2 and wear a suit . . . and I skip down the street to work every day. It makes me happy and feels like I'm in a musical.
4. If I'm feeling really stressed out I'll buy a pint of Ben & Jerry's and watch an episode of "Grey's Anatomy".
5. I really like cuddling . . . but only when I'm the little spoon.
6. I order girly drinks at bars. I just like how they taste.
7. Sometimes I like taking a bubble bath with candles when I'm not feeling well.
8. I always sit down to pee. (Reddit)

6. If someone looks bad in a photo, don't tag them on Facebook. (News.com.au)
