Guys aren't mysterious, but we try to act that way once in awhile because we know girls like that kind of stuff.
The thing to remember is that unless your man is a drama queen, there probably isn't much sub-text to what he says. Sure, what we say isn't always 100% what we mean but that doesn't mean you should be looking for hidden messages. Here are 12 things guys say and what they actually mean.
1. I don't feel like going out tonight.
I'm tired, please don't make me put pants on.
2. I'm hungry.
Guys are honest, he's probably just hungry. It happens when you haven't eaten in awhile.
3. That girl is just a friend.
Don't worry, we don't hang out on the weekends or anything.
5. You look hot in that dress.
Don't try to find any hidden messages, you just genuinely look hot. And yes, you look hot the rest of the time too in case you were worried.
6. I'm going out with the guys tonight.
I would enjoy an evening where I can fart freely and be praised for how loud my burps are .
7. I prefer the natural look.
I'll still have sex with you even if you aren't wearing makeup.
8. I'll call you later tonight.
Unless I fall asleep first.
9. I'm not looking for a serious relationship.
Don't try to hang around until he changes his mind, you will be very disappointed.
10. When you ask what he's thinking about and he answers "nothing".
I know it's hard to understand, but sometimes we're actually thinking about nothing. It's kind of nice, you should try it sometime.
11. I don't mind if you keep shopping.
As long as there's a "Boyfriend Chair" and I have my smartphone with me I'll be okay.
Canada's statistical agency released the data on June 16 to create a "portrait" of the "demographic and social profile of Canada's diverse LGBTQ2+ communities" — however, much of the data "[focuses] on LGB Canadians (lesbian, gay, bisexual), since Statistics Canada has been collecting detailed information on these communities since 2003."
There were 72,880 same-sex couples in Canada in 2016, making up 0.9% of all couples in Canada.
StatsCan said half of those same-sex couples lived in the major cities of Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Ottawa–Gatineau.
Between 2006 and 2016, the number of same-sex couples in Canada increased by 60.7%, compared to an increase of 9.6% in "opposite-sex" couples.
StatsCan said the increase "may be reflective, at least in part, of growing awareness and acceptance of sexual diversity in Canada."
LGBTQ2S+ hate crimes are on the rise in Canada
According to StatsCan's 2018 survey, LGB+ Canadians were both more likely to report being "violently victimized" throughout their lives and more likely to have experienced "inappropriate behaviours in public and online" than non-queer Canadians.
In 2018, LGB+ Canadians were "twice as likely" as non-queer Canadians "to report experiencing inappropriate behaviours" in the 12 months prior to the survey:
in public: 57% versus 22% of non-queer Canadians
online: 37% versus 15% of non-queer Canadians
at work: 44% versus 22% of non-queer Canadians.
Violent hate crimes against LGB+ Canadians were on par with violent racially-charged hate crimes in 2018.
Of hate crimes that targeted sexual orientation, 53% were violent crimes.
In comparison, 27% of hate crimes targeting religion and 52% of hate crimes targeting race or ethnicity were violent crimes, according to the data.
Further, according to StatsCan's 2018 survey, transgender Canadians were also more likely to report poorer mental health than cisgender Canadians.
They were also more likely to have "seriously contemplated suicide in their lifetimes."
Transgender Canadians were additionally more likely "to have been diagnosed with a mood or anxiety disorder" than cisgender Canadians.
The pandemic might have had a bigger effect on LGBTQ2S+ Canadians
StatsCan said that the LGBTQ2S+ population could have been "disproportionately affected" by job loss during the pandemic since a greater share of the communities' populations are between the ages of 15 and 24 — an age group whose employment levels "remains furthest from February 2020 levels."
LGBTQ2S+ Canadians also made less than their non-queer counterparts overall.
In 2018, 41% of LGBTQ2S+ Canadians "had a total personal income of less than $20,000" yearly, compared to 26% of non-queer Canadians.
In the same year, on average, queer income-earners in Canada made about 72% — $39,000 — of the average income of non-queer Canadians, at $54,000.
However, StatsCan noted that the income difference could partly be due to the large youth population in LGBTQ2S+ communities. Being enrolled in high school, CEGEPs or universities could reduce their potential income, the agency said.
In 2018, 33% of LGBTQ2S+ Canadians "found it difficult or very difficult to meet their needs in terms of transportation, housing, food, clothing, participation in some social activities and other necessary expenses," compared with just 27% of non-queer Canadians, according to StatsCan.
This is going to be a semi-rant and a semi-joke list considering that I have lived through all these failed date plans. Yes, it is true that my boyfriend and I have failed to fulfill these date plans below whether it be him saying "Ya I'll bring you one day" or us both agreeing that we rather stay home and watch Netflix.
I think all couples go though that "lazy phase" and even after that phase we still go through days were we say things but don't actually pull through. However, after dating for 4 years my boyfriend and I have overcome the phase of saying we are going to do something but never doing it. I can honestly say that we have done a majority of things on this list and they were truly spectacular.
So, if your boyfriend is ALWAYS saying "Babe, I'll take you soon I promise", but it actually never ends up happening be sure to tag him in the comments below and make this your official summer bucket list that you MUST complete this summer.
