Top 10 Things That Make Us Women Angry at You Guys
Hi, my name is Stacey Hulett, born in raised in Sunny Florida. I just wanted to share my pet peeves to help out guys who are in a long term relationship, dating, or who actually proposed and got married.
1) Clean up after yourself. The FLOOR is not a garbage. Speaking of garbage, how about you take it out once in a while, too? Cleaning up also means not leaving the bathroom floor and sink looking like a barber’s shop. Also, what’s up with leaving empty beer cans on the couch? By the way, did you ever wonder how your dirty clothes and dirty dishes ever get cleaned? You leave your clothes in the hamper and your dirty dishes on the table, and I actually clean them. Just ONCE, I’d like for you to OFFER to clean the table or use the washer and dryer.
2) I’m not your bud, I’m your girlfriend/wife. Guess what? I don’t play “guess that movie quote”, don’t care about video games, and don’t see what’s so funny about that little brat who speaks like an Englishman on Family Guy. I like romantic comedies, NOT Star Wars or Die Hard. I like to see Brad Pitt; listening to you rave about Natallie Portman doesn’t do a thing for me. I think farts are disgusting, not cute. And I DON’T watch porn.
3) Cook. Just TRY. You’d be surprised how patient I could be if you at least attempted to use an appliance in our kitchen besides the microwave.
4) Do it now. There’s nothing more frustrating for me when I see you sitting around doing nothing when there are things to be done around the house- things that you take for granted that “someone else” will take care of it (me). Men are known for procrastinating and being lazy, and I won’t stand for it! Don’t tell a woman “later” or “tomorrow”. And If you really want to get into trouble with us, ask, “If it’s so important, why don’t you do it?”
5) Don’t ever ask me how much something costs. I like shoes. I like pocket books. I like moisturizer. I like perfume. I don’t ask you how much your computer graphics card costs or why you have 7 online subscriptions to websites, now do I? I work, so do you, live with it.
6) If we get into a fight, don’t just sit there and say “nothing”. You may think it’s the wrong thing, you may think I’m going to get angrier (I probably will), but say something. Stand up for what you believe in.
7) If I ask you to help me make a decision, don’t say “it’s up to you”. When I ask you which dress I should buy, which insurance plan I should use, what type of invitation I should order, or any question, do not respond with “it’s up to you”. That trivializes my question. By not answering me, you make me feel that my question is unimportant. I asked you for a reason.
8) Don’t tell me “I love you” at the beginning of a fight. Say it at the end, after you’ve fully outlined why you’re wrong, given a full confession, and promise to make amends. THEN you can say “I love you”, and I’ll allow you to watch your football game.
9) Comparing me to your mother or previous girlfriends. Don’t. You. Dare.
10) Don’t forget. Women know that men “forget” things they were not interested in, like doing a favor for my younger brother, your mother-in-law’s birthday, or picking up feminine hygiene products on your way from work. So when you forget our anniversary or birthday, it shows me that you don’t care about our relationship. Because if it was important to you, you would have remembered it.
