5 Annoying Things That Girlfriends Should Stop Doing


You always want to operate your relationship on foundations of honesty, trust, commitment, and unconditional love. However, there will be some slip-ups. We’re only humans, right? Couples will go through rough patches and there will be some disagreements. A lot of times, miscommunication will be the primary suspect. However, there will be some special instances where one member of the relationship can just be really stupid. Here are a few examples of annoying things that girlfriends should never do.

1. Using “I’m fine” as an answer just to make a point

If you’re not “fine”, then stop telling boys that you are. Boys will believe whatever things that come out of your mouth. If you’re feeling upset or disappointed, then express yourself articulately. Stop hiding behind vague “I’m fines” while expecting your man to understand what you’re going through. It doesn’t work and it’s really annoying. It’s something a spoiled brat would say. Be articulate with your expressions and make sure he fully understands what you’re thinking or feeling at any given moment. Men aren’t mind readers and they will most likely only be paying attention to what’s coming out of your mouth.

2. Going through Emails, Website Histories, and Personal Messages

The best kinds of relationships are built on trust. The relationships where girls have to constantly snoop through their boyfriend’s files and message histories are incredibly toxic. There is no trust there. What’s the point of being together if you can’t feel like you can be honest with each other? Why would you want to be with someone who you can’t rely on to be loyal to you? If you feel the urge to snoop around your boyfriend’s private files, then maybe he shouldn’t really be your boyfriend.

3. Taking food from his plate without permission instead of ordering your own share

You’re not exactly poor right? There’s a reason why you ordered different food items too, right? If you wanted some of what was on his plate, why not ask him to split? Or better yet, why don’t you order some for yourself? You don’t understand how important food can be to some people, and maybe he was planning on eating all those fries on his plate, but you essentially took half without asking. That’s definitely not cool and it can be a spark for future arguments. Just stop doing it

4. Taking too long to get ready

The worst. This is probably the number one thing that gets on guys nerves. Boys don’t like having to wait around for you to get ready for dates. They love you for who you are and not what you look like. And besides, if getting pretty and putting on makeup is very important to you, would it kill you to start the process a little bit earlier? Guys value their time and when you’re being tardy, it may make them feel that you don’t value their time.

5. Asking annoyingly unnecessary and rhetorical questions

“Do you love me?” “Would you marry me right now if you could?” “Am I important to you?” It’s annoying. Yes, men like to feel needed every once in a while. But know that there is a limit to neediness. Stop asking him questions that you already know the answer to. You don’t need him to constantly reaffirm his love for you. Be a strong independent woman and make your man work for you every so often. You can have him express his love for you through other means, and not by answering rhetorical questions.
