It’s our favorite time of the year—that’s aside from Christmas and the FHM 100 Sexiest Victory Party; okay, it’s our THIRD favorite time of the year! But who’s counting, right? What’s more important is it’s now February. The love month. The okay-lang-magwaldas-para-sa-date month. The only month men are allowed to be ultra-cheesy.
But do you have any idea HOW to be cheesy? Are you and your girlfriend/missus constantly bickering about your lack of romance? Do you attribute your singlehood to your lack of wooing skills? Well, we’re going to solve these all for you! FHM will be dishing out daily how-to-be-a-Don-Romantiko tips the whole month of February!
Gentlemen, welcome to FHM’s 28 Days Of Romansahan!
DAY #10: TURN IT UP, TURN HER ON!
We’re clearly past the era of mixtapes and holding up boom boxes under bedroom windows ala John Cusack in Say Anything, but making them chicks smile with the power of song will never go out of style. Here’s something that might surprise you though: Your ladylove might not really be into your tunes (and is probably just politely bobbing her head along to Jay-Z’s latest track).
Face it: your “Uy, pakinggan mo to” line serves only to validate your own taste in music, and chambahan lang if she ends up liking it. This V-Day, make her listen to what she wants to listen to—and here’s our handy guide to properly turning up the volume in the most opportune of moments. This is guaranteed girl-approved.
But first, here's a general tip to make your life easier: It wouldn’t hurt to have the complete discographies of Beyonce, Adele, and Rihanna on your iPod, guys.
WHEN SHE’S IN A BAD MOOD
Whether she’s throwing a bitch fit after a long day of work, or already on the wrong side of sanity from PMS, crank up some total feel-good guuurl power tunes. Catchy beats with a femme powerhouse vocal will make her feel like her spirit animals Queen Bey or Ate Lorde are personally cheering her up.
Lorde’s “Royals” or anything from her Pure Heroine album, for that matter.
Beyonce’s “Love on Top”
Adele’s “Rumour Has It” or anything from 19 or 21
Where to go if you hate people
This is your chance to get high
Admit it, you're both attracted and terrified of these women
Or how to actually be healthy and keep it that way
