What not to do when in a relationship

15 June 2016, 14:06

If you have a man you want to keep by all means, then these are certain things you have to just stop doing.

Most men will not talk about this to their partners, but they really wish their partners would stop doing these 10 things.

1. Doubting His Dreams

Men want partners who will think that they are very smart, talented, intelligent, and will support their dreams. They want partners that will be willing to stand by them no matter how crazy their dreams may seem. No man wants to be around someone who is always scrutinizing his plans and looking down on his dreams. He expect you to be his cheerleader who will believe in his dreams against all odds.

2. Finding Faults With His Flaws He cannot be perfect every day 

No matter how he try, he can’t help messing up on some days. He really wish to be loving and sensitive, and caring every day, but sometimes he can’t help being human. Sometimes he forget to take out the trash, and other times he leaves his sweaty pants on the bedroom floor after jogging. That doesn’t mean he is deliberately sitting back, not trying to be a better version of himself. No, it only means that he is still human and not angel. You can always correct him lovingly, but he hates it when you keep harping about his flaws.

3. Being His Mother and Scolding Him, Sometimes men make mistakes

They could make decisions that prove to be the wrong decision on the long run. At those times, they feel vulnerable. The last thing men need is to be scolded again and made to feel worse.

4. Welcoming Him Home Without a Smile

To most of us, life is like a battlefield. Men go out with arsenal of war, expecting to fight the best way they could and win. They are not just fighting for themselves. However, they expect their homes to be haven. They expect home to be place of retreat and comfort where they can release stress. So imagine how disappointed they get when they return and are not greeted with a smile.

5. Smothering Him With Affection 

Men appreciate the fact that you love them , and you want to express your love at any opportunity you get. As you do that, however, remember that men are not exactly babies. They don’t need you monitoring us or stifling us with attention and care. remember that too much of everything is bad.

6. Not Trusting Him

Remember the point about men being humans and not angels? Let’s say he did something that made you lose your trust; please try and build it up. He hates having that feeling that you dont trust him.

7. Disrespecting Him

For most men, disrespect is the worst offense. Most men cannot stand a partner who belittles or speaks to them with disdain. Doing this will make him want to avoid you.

8. Using Sex and Food as a Manipulative Tool

Men don’t joke with food and s*x (if you are married) . They hate it so much when you use these things as grounds to get them to do what they initially didn’t want to do.

9. Discouraging Him When He Wants to Do His Own Thing

Even when married or in a relationship, most men still want to have that feeling of freedom. They need to spend time alone from time to time, and hate it when you discourage then from doing it either directly or indirectly.

10. Comparing Him Unfavorably With Other Men, Especially Your Ex

You know how you feel when you get compared to other women? Me usually feel worse. If you are going to make any comparison at all, make it in such a way that we are the better people.
