10 Things You Shouldn’t Hold Against Your Boyfriend

"As long as you don’t feel suffocated, a little jealousy and insecurity is normal."

Let’s face it guys, no two humans are the same and same is the case with your boyfriend. He does not act the same way as you do and because of the differences, it can be hard to avoid arguments and resentments. Moreover, every relationship requires some sort of adjustments and compromises. On top of that, men are very dissimilar to women which is why we’ve hunt down a few things that you should never hold against your man:

  1. Forgetfulness

Men, generally, are forgetful creatures. Yes, they do forget things sometimes but you have to understand that a man has a lot of responsibilities and a lot of things on his plate. They do feel bad about forgetting things and most of them even apologize or make up for it later. It is never okay to hold a long time grudge for their forgetfulness because that’s something built-in, in the male psyche and you do not need to take it personally.

  1. Jealousy

Every man gets a little jealous and insecure every now and then. This fact can be attributed to their naturally protective and possessive nature. A little jealousy does not mean that he is trying to control you or trying to snatch your freedom, what it does mean, is that he is acting on his nature. Why would you hold it against him if he is a bit scared of losing you?

As long as you don’t feel suffocated, a little jealousy and insecurity is normal.

  1. Space

Men, sometimes, get exhausted from all the daily life stress and that is why, they need some time to return to their normal selves and most men do it by being alone for a while. So the next time he asks for a little alone time, do not hold that against him, he is not sick of you and it is not about you at all. However, if he wants to be alone for more than 48 hours, then your anger is understandable.В  – Continue reading on the next page

  1. Expressiveness

Men are naturally less expressive than women, but sooner or later they do share their feelings. It is never okay to hold this fact against him and it is worse to force him to share the things that bother him. With time, he will tell you everything himself.

  1. Support

Most men do not really understand the mechanics of comforting a woman. If your guy is like most men, there isn’t really you can do except cherish his companionship. If you are going through something and he is with you, then that means that is the best he can do. At least he is there to provide a literal shoulder to cry upon if not emotional support.

  1. Anger

Aggression is something that have been a part of man’s nature since the caveman times. It is merely an evolutionary trait and you should not hold that against him. Every man gets angry to a normal extent and the things he says during that aggressive phase, he rarely means them. So if your guy says hurtful things but to a limit then you should not hold it against him. moreover, even the tiniest amount of physical aggression should not be tolerated. Other than these things, aggression is normal for men.

  1. Work

Men are hardworking and if your man is really committed to you, he will work even harder to provide you with the things that you need even if you are completely independent. He’ll also work hard for his future with him. So, if he works too hard, you need to support him instead of holding it against them. At the end of the day, he is doing this for you.В  – Continue reading on the next page

  1. His exes

Every man has that one Ex in his life who pops up every now and then. You do not need to feel insecure about it and you don’t need to hold it against him. If anything, it shows that your guy is very hard to get over. If anything, you should feel proud being with a guy who is desirable by all.

  1. Family

It’s hard for him to be completely comfortable around your friends and family. But with time, he will be pertly comfortable being around them. Instead of holding it against him, just be patient and give him time. He will be okay in his own time. Moreover, if he does not introduce you to his friend and family right away, do not take it personally. He is just trying to make sure if you two are in a serious commitment. A mentioned earlier, men do things in their own time.

  1. Interests

Being a male, of course his likes are somewhat different from yours. He might not be interested in watching a romantic comedy with you just like you are not interested in going baseball with him and his buddies. Instead of holding it against him, cherish the dissimilarities. After all, similarities are boring. This way, both of you have your ways to blow off steam when you need to.
