15 Things Boys Do That Make Girlfriends Insecure
Boys, be sensitive of your girlfriends’ feelings. Always make sure to treat her like a princess and try your best to never make her feel bad about anything. Don’t ever allow her to succumb to her insecurities.
An unhappy girlfriend means an unhappy relationship for you. You don’t want that. Have some basic human decency and always try to make your girlfriend feel loved and cared for. Why would you want to be in a relationship with someone you don’t care about anyway?
There are things that you think you’re doing innocently that can hurt her. Be more mindful and allow yourself to act with more tact. She deserves more than how you’re treating her. Here are 15 things boys do that make girlfriends insecure.
1. Tell Them That They Need Better Makeup
A girl always wants to look her absolute best for you. If you tell her that she needs more work on her makeup, then that may lead her to think that you don’t find her pretty or that you’re ashamed of how she looks. Either way, it doesn’t bode well for her self-esteem.
2. Make Fun Of Their Eating Habits
If she has a big appetite, don’t make fun of her for it. She’ll end up feeling like she’s a fatty and that’s not a good thing. If she’s not eating much, then be sensitive with your remarks. She may not be feeling well or she may be feeling like she needs to lose weight for you. Don’t make fun of her for her eating habits.
3. Hide Your Phones From Them
If you hide your phone from your girlfriend, then that tells her that you’re probably hiding pictures or messages from her.
4. Make Fun Of Their Outfits
Like makeup, a girl will use her outfit as a way to attract her boyfriend. She wants to dress up to feel better about who she is and if you make fun of what she’s wearing, then that creates a dent in her confidence. – Continue reading on the next page
5. Refuse To Be Intimate
Your refusal to be intimate is an indication of disinterest. If she picks up on this, she will think that this is her fault. Your hesitation to engage in intimacy will lead her to believe that she’s not enough for you.
6. Tell Them That They Have To Lose Weight
This is a big one. It’s one thing to say that you want her to live healthier and encourage her to workout. It’s another thing entirely if you say that she’s just being fat and has to lose weight. Be careful how you phrase this kind of remark.
7. Hiding Her From Your Family
Family is important. Everyone knows this. She knows that your family is important to you. If you refuse to introduce her to your family, then it will make her feel like she’s unimportant in your life.
8. Flirt With Other Women
Nothing can break a woman’s heart more than seeing her man being intimate with other women. Stop flirting with other women and preserve the confidence and self-esteem of your girl. You owe her that much. It’s downright disrespectful to be flirtatious while being in a relationship anyway.
9. Cancel On Her Constantly
If you keep blowing her off to make way for responsibilities (however valid), it won’t make her feel good. She will feel undervalued and unimportant in your life. Always make sure you allot ample time for her and your relationship.
10. Tell Her That She’s No Good In The Kitchen
A woman always wants to be able to take care of her man. If you make fun of her cooking, it might seem innocent, but to her, you’re practically saying that she’s incapable of taking care of you in the future.В – Continue reading on the next page
11. Not Keeping Her Posted On Your Whereabouts
Don’t keep her guessing as to where you are at any given moment. Yes, you don’t necessarily have to be calling her every 5 minutes. But at least make an effort to let her know what your plans for a given set of time will be.
12. Take Too Long To Reply To Text Messages
Yes, you may be busy in a meeting or you might be working out. She should understand that. She just can’t help it sometimes. She’ll feel bad whenever you don’t respond to her messages in a timely fashion. It’s human nature.
13. Be Inconsistent
Remember that old Katy Perry song? You’re hot, then you’re cold. You’re yes, then you’re no. You’re up, then you’re down. You’re in, then you’re out. Yes. She doesn’t respond to inconsistency well when it comes to your relationship.
14. Refuse To Commit
Commitment is key in making relationships work. If you don’t let her know that you’re committing to her, that deals substantial damage to her ego and self-esteem.
15. Be Too Friendly With Other Girls on Social Media
It might be purely innocent on your part, but it’s not good for her feelings. She doesn’t like it when you’re being a little too friendly with other girls on Twitter and Facebook. It’s on a public forum and it makes her feel like you don’t care about whether she sees it or not.
