Let’s get this right; both genders annoy each other on different levels. But despite the admiration men have for their women, there are things women do that drive men crazy if not away. This list aims to bridge the gap between men and women to improve communication, avoid misunderstanding, and expose any “taboo” issues that need to be brought into the open.
Being Too Cling/Desperate
Men need their space in a relationship no matter how much they love you. The smart woman knows that a man needs his space and doesn’t hold it against him. She’s confident enough to know that each person needs his/her own space to maintain a healthy relationship. On the other hand, jealous and possessive women are well known for their deliberate attempts to prevent a man from having any sort of privacy. Those are the women who think letting a man out of their sight is a mistake. They keep choke holds on their men and eventually drive them away. But if a woman can’t give the man a little space, either the relationship isn’t solid or she has some personal problems she needs to deal with. If it’s because she can’t trust him out of her sight, she doesn’t need that man anyway. Men don’t like women who are always clinging to them; they prefer an independent woman. Don’t show your man that you will die if he is not in your life. Give him space and go to him when you need him.
Wears Too Much Makeup Or Talks Too Much About It
It’s not that makeup isn’t interesting; it’s just that it usually isn’t all that interesting to people who don’t wear it. Guys don’t know the difference between blush and eyeliner. They have no idea which brands are the best. They can’t even tell your favorite YouTube makeup tutorials apart; they just know that every single video starts with a pretty woman saying, “Hey guys!” in kind of a singsong tone. When you tell your boyfriend about makeup, his eyes roll in the back of his head. Your man is entitled to his own opinion when it comes to your physical appearance. Some men get really irritated with too much makeup.
Being Too Needy
Of course, wanting a good hardworking man who respects women isn’t asking too much. But what about when it goes far beyond that? For some women, having a good man just isn’t enough. They also want a Lexus, two-story home in the suburbs, and a string of credit cards. When they don’t have these things, they moan and complain as though life is terrible. If the man dares to say something about how he’s happy with things as they are, he’ll be accused of being complacent, lazy, and lacking ambition. It’s fine to have goals and want some luxuries. But counting the blessings you already have never hurt either.
Talking About Other Men Or Exes
When a woman constantly talks about her ex, it makes the man feel like she is not over the ex and this is a major turn-off. This especially comes in when you start comparing your ex to your current man. Men don’t like to hear women constantly talking about other men. It’s not necessarily an ego thing. It’s just that each man wants to feel special and important to the woman in his life. Women don’t have to cradle us like babies. Nor do they need to be patronizing. But a woman would be wise to realize that the ego of a man can be fragile. Not talking excessively to your husband or boyfriend about how great you think other men are is one small thing that can go a long way toward healing the beleaguered black male ego.
Being A Drama Queen
Drama queens are always whining, pestering, or nagging about something. With them, nothing can ever be right. They pull all kinds of little tricks to get and control a man’s attention. If he’s watching television, she wants him to get up and put out the trash. When he has time off from work, she tries to plan each hour for him. If it’s bill-paying time, she’s crying about her car note being late. Another technique used by the drama queen is to play the damsel in distress to get a man’s attention. In this role, the drama queen says “save me.” Initially, it may make a man feel good to be the chivalrous knight in shining armor coming to the rescue. But too much distress can drive even the most loyal knight to ride off into the sunset.
Playing Hard To Get/Miscommunication
A man likes a woman who will challenge him but if he pursues a girl for too long he will eventually move on. Women expect you to read their minds like a psychic. We often have difficulty just figuring out what women mean with the words they speak. I think women are far more sophisticated communicators than men; they seem to be more adept at the subtleties of gestures, facial expressions, and body language. Therefore, men and women almost always suffer from communication breakdowns in relationships. Unfortunately, some women do not express themselves honestly and openly. It seems that they are more apt to use voice inflections and body language to communicate what they mean, even when the actual words they are saying convey the opposite.
