A couple we know recently got engaged via an elaborate proposal that had clearly taken Justin, the groom-to-be, an immense amount of planning and effort to pull off. A mutual friend, upon hearing about it, told him, “Good job. Only 9,999,999 tests left to go.” Laughing at his friend’s good-natured cynicism, Justin nevertheless realized there was some truth to the statement. He said, “She wouldn’t just tell me she wanted me to come up with something big like that. She said, ‘Whatever you want’ but I suspected that she didn’t really mean it. I wish she would’ve just told me. But at least I got it right this time.” Like most guys, Justin wondered: why do women “test” and “play games” with their men at all?
So read closely—and if you don’t think these reasons could possibly be true, just ask your wife!
