Nowadays, women spend a lot of time over-analyzing the male psyche. Their tight-lipped approach towards relationships and dating is what drives women mad and gives them endless excuses to spend their weekend over a cocktail with friends discussing why men drive them crazy.
The male mind is a mystery, and to help understand men, we have mentioned some things that men secretly wish women knew when it comes to dating and being in a relationship.
Keep on reading to understand the male mind better!
1. Obsessiveness is not tolerable
It’s okay to be jealous sometimes to make the other person feel important and desired. However, going through your man’s personal belongings while he is busy in the shower is too obsessive and not tolerable.
2. No PJs, please
Pajamas should definitely be banned as soon as high school ends. No man wants to come home after a long day at work and see his girl walking around in Looney Toon’s pajamas.
3. Keep your bathroom business to yourself
The bathroom is a holy area. Whatever you do in, there is your business unless you are showering. Men do not want to know about your bathroom business at all.
4. Know your worth
Men desire women who are self-assured and extremely confident. When a man talks to a woman who is self-conscious, insecure, and doubtful, it makes him lose the respect he has for her. Never even weaken your self-worth as a woman.
5. Stay in control of your emotions
Being so angry that it comes to a point where all you’re doing is screaming and shouting out of despair will make men lose all the respect they have for you.
Slamming doors, throwing stuff away, and showing that you are very aggressive really ticks off men.
6. Speaking of street language
Listening to a woman speak as if she is a part of some ghetto gang is not at all attractive and is very disappointing. It does not make you sound cool and lady-like.
7. Don’t change your likes and dislikes
Men appreciate a slight conflict of interests, and it is normal to have different hobbies, likes, dislikes, etc. No man wants his girl to become the exact opposite version of himself.
8. Avoid bringing up your ex
Even if you are just trying to make a point on how your current boyfriend treats you better than your last, bringing up your ex is not a good move. It makes men go crazy, and it just turns them off.
9. Men love seeing you without makeup
Yes, men love makeup on their girls when they are going out, but they also appreciate your morning face without anything on. It makes them feel closer to you and also makes you look cuddly.
10. Try to not compete with our friends
Please avoid being jealous if your man wants to spend some time with his friends. This is not personal, and friends have a different role than you do; avoid comparing yourself to his friends.
11. Getting mad at pointless things makes you look dumb
Men simply question your intelligence if you start to get mad at silly and stupid things such as losing your keys or not finding your favorite coffee mug.
12. Say thank you sometimes
It won’t kill you to appreciate your man’s sweet gesture every once in a while. This applies to men as well; avoid taking things for granted.
13. You have flaws
Men know that no one is completely perfect, and if they are willing to accept your flaws, why don’t you accept them too. Also, if he accepts your flaw,n you should accept his flaws instead of constantly nagging him about it.
14. Avoid fighting over stupid things
Such as the fact that he left his socks in the drawing-room or if he forgot to send you a goodnight message.
15. Stop caring about his ex
If your man’s ex still texts him, then stop fighting with your man about it. He loves you and is with you; you don’t have to be so insecure all the time.
16. Have goals
A woman without any goals, dreams, or desires sounds boring and disappointing, so make sure you have some goals and plans.
17. Take care of yourself
Please do not neglect your physical appearance and try to stay in shape to seem more desirable.
18. Stay supportive
Everyone makes mistakes so accept your man’s faults and stop criticizing.
19. Say “I Love You” when you mean it
Avoid saying these 3 words every 1 millisecond as it will become a phrase without any value.
20. Have some “Me” time
Do not revolve your life around your man and instead take care of yourself and have some hobbies of your own.
21. Avoid constant messaging
Messaging constantly when your man is away gives birth to insecurity and self-doubt.
In the video below, Dr. Antonio Borrello talks about what to do to stop anxiously waiting and worrying about the texts from your partner and make your love life peaceful:
22. Keep your relationship private
Avoid sharing your problems on social media and instead, grow up and solve it like a mature woman.
23. Avoid gossiping
Instead of focusing on others and their lives, focus on your life, and make it more interesting.
24. Stop changing your mind
If you decide to do something, then hold on to that decision and avoid self-doubt from creeping in.
