When you are fresh and young in love, then everything is likely to feel absolutely blissful in the relationship. You are going to see a lot of your partner’s best traits, values, and characteristics. This is often what is referred to as the honeymoon phase of a relationship. However, the deeper that you get into a relationship with one another, the more that you’re going to start to notice EVERYTHING in the relationship – both the good and bad aspects of it.
You are going to start taking notice of the fact that your man isn’t as perfect as he seems, and that he has a few bad traits and habits that you wish you could fix. He never washes the dishes after dinner. He forgets to take out the trash sometimes. He asks a lot of rhetorical questions. These are pretty small stuff that you might be able to look over and just ignore. And the truth is that he has a few grievances about the way that you would be conducting yourself in the relationship as well.
Here are 13 things that all men secretly wish their girlfriends would stop doing:
1. You are always on your phone when you’re on a date with him.
Whenever the two of you are on a date, you always have to make sure that all of your attention is on him. It would really hurt him and upset him to see that your eyes are practically glued to your social media feeds.
2. You nag and complain all of the time.
It’s okay to have certain grievances and annoyances in a relationship. That’s a part of it. However, sometimes, there are just some things that aren’t worth getting upset over. And you shouldn’t be nagging him about them all of the time.
3. You make him wait around for you to get ready.
Whenever you tell him that you’re meeting him at a certain time, then make sure that you actually follow through on your commitment. If you show up late or you make him wait for you, you are essentially telling him that his time isn’t as important as your own.
4. You don’t let him help you.
He loves you and he’s in a relationship with you. Allow him to help you out with your problems every once in a while. That doesn’t mean that you’re not independent. It just means that you’re letting him into your life.
