I asked my girlfriend to tell me some of the things that annoy her, something that I do; I asked her to be completely open about everything. This is what I’ve learned.
My last article was about “annoying girlfriend habits,” it made a lot of girls think I’m biased towards my gender. I think men are perfect; I don’t, I can say this myself that men have their flaws and that’s where this article comes from, I asked my girlfriend to tell me some of the things that annoy her, something that I do, this is going to be an article on “annoying boyfriend habits.”
Here are eight annoying boyfriend habits that girls hate.
8. When they act too, “alpha.”
Women hate it when men think they run the show and start working as it. Every relationship is about equality; no man should have any authority over the woman they’re dating, that’s not what love is, and that’s not how relationships work.
Relationships require a constant and equal amount of effort from both sides; men can’t say they’re taking the lead neither can women; it’s about being fair. So for the men who think they’re above women in something, they’re not.
7. When they start keeping checks
Every woman wants to be free; no relationship should have tests and boundaries, that just suffocates people. This is very true, and some of my guy friends do this with their girlfriends, they keep a constant check on their girlfriend’s activities, who they’re hanging out with, what they do in their free time, everything is kept a close eye on, this is something that girls hate.
This just shows the girl that you have too many personal insecurities and that you can never completely trust her with yourself.
6. When they don’t like shopping
This is a little different for me personally because I love shopping. I love accompanying my girlfriend whenever she wants to shop. I love picking out her dresses for her, but most men don’t.
One of my friends waits outside of the mall in his car while his girlfriend is shopping inside, according to him it’s an annoying thing to do, and he doesn’t have anything to say about what she’s buying, this annoys the hell out of his girlfriend. Girls love it when their men take part in their shopping activities.
5. When they’re too picky about food
Guys, if she’s cooking for you, appreciate her and appreciate the food she cooked for you. Some men are super critical of the food, they start acting like Gordon Ramsay, and that hurt the girl’s feelings because she put so much effort into cooking something for them and they still aren’t satisfied.
Be content of the things she cooks for you, be appreciative, and cherish what she’s doing for you. I hated my dad because of this; not one day was spent in our house when my dad didn’t say something horrible about my mother’s cooking. If it is so bad that you can’t eat it, quietly tell her you’re full, just don’t hurt her feelings.
4. When they don’t listen
I try my best not to do this, but I still do sometimes, I recently bought the new next-gen GTA V, and that’s when my girlfriend felt like I wasn’t listening to her and she got distraught. Girls love to talk. Naturally, they love to share the highlights of their days, they love to talk about their friends, their family, their fights, they just want to share everything, and they want their men to take an interest in what they’re saying.
Most men don’t; most men would either nod their heads while watching their favorite game or just say yes to everything. I’m still not perfect at listening; I always try my best, though.
3. When they have too many female friends around
This is one thing that’s common for both genders. Just as men aren’t okay with it when their girlfriends have a lot of guy friends, women aren’t okay with it when their boyfriends have a lot of female friends.
It’s not about trust, it’s not about insecurities, it’s just very natural, and even the coolest of girlfriends are going to have a problem with it, if not now then maybe a few months from now when she can’t keep it to herself anymore. It’s because our partners are critical to us, and we just can’t take any chances.
2. When they stare at other girls
Women are naturally more possessive than men, women who genuinely love their men can’t make it if they show more attention to other women or stare at other women, it just hurts them because they want all of his care and love, they want him to stare at them and only them, this is one thing my girlfriend taught me very well, and I don’t do it anymore.
Some guys would be like, “boys will be boys.” Still, no, that shouldn’t be the justification for anything, if you love your girl, don’t make her feel like someone else is better than her, she should be the prettiest and hottest girl in your eyes.
1. When they don’t pay attention
My girlfriend goes to a lot of lengths to look pretty for me, the way she dresses, the perfume she’s wearing, the color of lipstick, everything. And when I don’t pay attention to her, it upsets her because she made a lot of effort for me. Men, pay attention to your ladies, don’t make them feel under-appreciated.
