Relationships can be difficult. You need to have lots of patience and resilience with one another in order for it to work. Miscommunication can often be damning for even the strongest kinds of relationships. Men and women will always be different. It’s hardwired into their respective DNA’s. The best way to keep your relationship healthy is to have plenty of understanding for one another. Whenever frustrations arise, try to understand their perspective on things and be more empathetic. For all the ladies who are confused about why their boyfriends are angry all the time, maybe this list can help you out.
These are 14 things about relationships that really frustrate men:
1. Not Being Given Enough Attention
Don’t be fooled by a rugged and macho exterior. A man will also need attention. Think about it, a man would never willingly go into a relationship with someone unless he craved for attention from their significant other. Some men need attention more than others, it varies really. But you should find out how much attention your man needs and find a way to maintain the harmony in your relationship.
To some men, yes it’s cute to have a playfully jealous girlfriend. It’s a nice feeling to be wanted. Then again, there are just some girls who get overly crazy jealous to the point where it actually harms the relationship. Don’t fall into the trap of constantly needing your man to have his eyes only on you. He also has friends, hobbies, and aspirations that are worthy of his attention.
3. Not Getting Enough Alone Time
Your boyfriend loves you. Don’t worry. It’s just sometimes he also needs some time to be with himself. Being around people for prolonged periods of time can be quite suffocating. Sometimes, a little solitude can be healthy for mind and body. Just let him be if he wants to have his alone time with video games, or when he wants to work out at the gym. You don’t constantly have to be clinging to his side.
4. Persistent Nagging
Guys can be very frustrating, even they know that. So it’s perfectly understandable for girls to be constantly showing their frustration everyday by nagging and complaining. However, it sometimes gets to the point where it no longer helps your relationship. Persistent nagging and complaining can come off as very annoying and confrontational. Call your man out when he’s doing wrong but don’t be the constant nagger.
5. Financial Worries
It’s simple truth. Being in a relationship can be a huge blow to one’s bank account. Constantly having to pay for dates, gifts, and shared utilities can add up over a period of time. It’s not like there’s a quick fix for this because money problems are serious issues. Just make sure the both of you are both completely honest with each other about your financial situations.
