We need to talk!!!!
The statement that makes men quiver in their boots and sends them into an automatic anxiety spiral. It signifies extreme relationship danger. Actually, someone sent me an inbox message and said: “Hello Etemesi, you need to teach guys how to tackle the ‘we need to talk’ statement.”
So here we go. Whenever you hear this statement from your girlfriend, you know something bad is coming. Nothing good ever comes out of “we need to talk.” It’s the death sentence. In that case, it’s always advisable to respond in a sly manner whenever she needs to talk.

Here are some cool responses you can use.
1. Wait…… I have good news first.
It has been proven that women don’t break up with men when there are signs that show good things are about to happen. No woman will leave a man who is just about to have a major breakthrough in life. If she wants to talk, you can counter it with some manufactured good news first. It doesn’t have to be real. Just lie about something she can’t easily find out. This will buy you some time as you try to fix the main problem in your relationship
2. I am about to rush somewhere beb….i’ll be back.
By the time you come back, her attacks won’t have the same poison they could have had when she initially wanted to talk. She either will have calmed down or she will have forgotten some of the mean things she wanted to say to you.
3. Hey, I know things haven’t been going well for us but here’s what I suggest.
That’s right. Come up with a solution, a plan, even before she shoots out her issues. She’ll appreciate that and reconsider any stiff actions she was going to take. Trust me. Just hold her, look her deep in the eyes and have a serious look on your face when you are laying out your relationship troubleshooting plan.
4. No, we do not need to talk…….here’s what we need to do.
This is what a confident man who doesn’t give a donkey’s behind would say. After saying the statement above, do something dramatic, like scooping her with your strong arms and carrying her to the bedroom, or holding her by the waist then planting a deep kiss on her mouth. Thank me later.
Just say “okay” and accept the fate that’s coming your way. A word of caution though. Only say “okay” when you know you have messed up badly and have no defense. Don’t try to be a smart-ass when you have been a jackass. Face the wages of your sins.
6. I am not in the mood.
That’s right. You are the man here and you are not in the mood. This is what your polygamous great-grandfather would have said when his 5th wife tried to complain about being given less attention. It shows that you call the shots and you will talk when you are ready. Don’t come to strangle me if she breaks your stuff though. Haha.
