We all do things that sometimes annoy our partners whether we know about them or not. Little annoying things might not seem like a big deal to us but our partners notice and sometimes, it affects them more than we know. Open and honest conversations are crucial in every relationship but most times concerns are harder to voice than we think. But you all should fear not: we are here to tell you all about those annoying things you keep doing that might turn your man off. Here we go!
1. Stop talking about your ex
Seriously girl! Leave the past in the past and get your head together for the exciting present! Talking about your ex will not only turn your new man away – it will also leave you wondering why he did so. Keep your new relationship going and talk about ex to your girlfriends not your man.
Put the phone down and step away. That text number 100 is not necessary, trust us. A guy who is interested in you will not be waiting forever – he will be calling and texting you right back. Learn how to take a hint and don’t be that girl his friends call ‘a psycho stalker’.
3. Looking like a drag queen
We all want to look pretty for the person we like. However, overdoing it with makeup won’t do you any good. To be fair: guys will say they adore the ‘natural look’ without knowing how much work goes into it but keeping it casual is the best way to go!
You are correct: you are not in school anymore but being late to meet your guy might become a major turn off. Your time is as valuable as his! Unless you were working your magic on that ‘natural look’ and it got too much – come to your date on time.
5. Being a child
Men like when they have someone to take care of but girl, you’re a grown up! Your man should not be dealing with all of your problems. If you don’t know how to do something Google might be of help because helplessness is never attractive.
6. Taking someone’s identity
Not in a theft kind of way but in a ‘I want her life’ way. We admire other girls and their lifestyles sometimes but your admiration should be in check. If you are trying to be someone else you are betraying the first rule of successful dating: be yourself.
7. Giving him your all
Your life should not stop spinning just because you got a new beau. Guys scare really easy and seeing you being so available all the time might lead him to thinking you have no other life going on. What in your mind is ‘being a good girlfriend’ for him is a scary thing!
8. Expecting him to pay for everything
Are you a grown up? Do you have a job or some sort of income? Then you can at least offer to pay for yourself. Expecting him to pay might turn him away to someone who is more considerate about finances than you are.
9. Being a blabber mouth and telling all
No one likes a gossiper. To you it is a good girls nights out with a lot of talking – for him it is an idea that when you two are done you will be discussing every single detail of your relationship with your friends. Let the private things be truly private.
10. Forgetting to shower
Take care of yourself girl! It doesn’t matter if you have been at home for three days and he unexpectedly came to visit you: a shower is mandatory no matter what. Men fall in love when they pass a great-smelling woman. Don’t let your body odor ruin your relationship.
