3 Things To Get You Out Of The Doghouse
Okay guys listen up! Sometimes you do stupid things that really piss off your wife – don’t feel bad, you’re only human. But when your wife is boiling mad and makes you sleep on the coach, then you know you have to do something big to get back in her good graces. As a guy, you probably have no clue what to do and the last thing you want to do is piss her off again. So we’re here to help you get out of the doghouse once and for all! Here are three useful tips on what to do to make an angry wife a happy wife again:
1. Say how sorry you are and that you made a huge mistake
The first thing you need to do is give her a sincere apology (even if you think that you are right). She needs to hear how sorry you are and that whatever you did was a huge mistake. This should be done after you’ve both cooled down, and you need to be sincere about it because she’ll know otherwise. Women can spot liars a mile a way, so you need to really own you apology. Just remember to always say you’ll fix your mistakes and really try not to do it again.
2. Go out of your way to pick up the slack with chores
Once you’ve said you’re sorry, show it by going out of you way to lend an extra hand anywhere you can. Even if your wife doesn’t give you explicit directions to take out the trash or wash the dishes, take the initiative and do it anyways. By picking up the slack and helping her out with chores around the house (that she normally does), she’ll see how much you’re trying to make her happy and this will get you out of the doghouse a lot faster.
3. Give her something on her Amazon wish list
Every woman loves getting gifts, so why not surprise her with something from her Amazon wish list? She’s probably added tons of things for herself, but hasn’t bought anything in forever, so surprise her with a touching and meaningful gift. And since it’s on her Amazon wish list, you know for a fact she’ll love the gift!
By no means can we promise that the advice by Kristie R. will assure that you’ll get out of the doghouse – but hey, what do you have to lose?
