Men love their wives even if she holds the impact driver better than him. At least she knows which DeWALT impact driver is best. But kidding aside, there are some things that women do that some men hate. Let’s take a look at a few.
THINGS WOMEN do that MEN DON’T LIKE
1. The sense of time
If she tells him she’ll be there in a minute, it can mean anything. She either comes around the corner every second or is still looking for her car keys in the crammed handbag and only then is on her way. He likes to wait for her, but if she at least says how much late she is really coming, he doesn’t have to look at the door every few seconds like a lonely dog.
2. Correct your stories
If he tells an entertaining story in an illustrious group, he wants to tell it too. If she interrupts to make it clear that he was in 8th grade instead of 6th grade – or it was a perch and not a trout – she’s almost always right (which is pretty frightening). But that makes him look like an idiot. And it doesn’t usually matter for the story either …
3. Men are not mind readers
She is sad or angry and yells at him: “You know what you did!”. No, he almost certainly doesn’t know. If she doesn’t tell him, he’ll probably not figure it out for half an hour – if at all. And when he’s supposed to take the garbage down, it’s much more relaxed to say, “Honey, please take the garbage down.” instead of “The trash can is full again.”
4. A race just for fun
Women and men can do sports together – but in most cases, they shouldn’t. While she plays tennis “just for fun”, he wants to win. Exercising without being able to win or be better than the other makes no sense for men. When both go jogging together, he always has to be at the front door first.
5. Infatuation with accessories
A few pictures and flowers make a room comfortable – I agree. But the fun stops with the decorative pillows in bed, for example. Every night you have to take them down before going to sleep – and put them back on the bed in the morning. If he does lie down on a pillow, she pulls it away with the words “They’re not there to sleep.” Yes, but why are they in bed then?
6. TV multitasking
Men certainly make concessions when it comes to television programming. So you watch your wife to love “Desperate Housewives”, “Storm of Love” or “Sex and the City” – but please not at the same time. Even if she can follow all three storylines at the same time, he can hardly keep track of which station is being watched.
7. “Do you think I’m fat?”
One of the worst questions a woman can ask a man. There can be no right answer to that. If he says “no,” she still doesn’t feel better. And if he says “yes,” he’d better hide behind the couch. Plus, he almost certainly thinks his wife is pretty and hates it when she has self-doubts.
8. Mother him
It almost goes without saying that the woman takes on the role of mother. But if she treats him like a child, he is not very grateful to her. If he goes out with his friends and they chase after him to put a hat on him, he’ll definitely have to listen to it all evening.
9. Hairstyle fiasco
She comes home with a brand new, exciting, incredibly bold new hairstyle. Because she cut her tips. While she complains that the hairstyle is a disaster and the hairdresser has totally screwed it up, he probably doesn’t even see the difference from before.
10. Women and their “girlfriends”
This new word comes from the English and stands for a mixture of enemy and girlfriend. And let’s be honest – actually every woman has one. She is out with her “girlfriend” and as soon as she comes home she complains about her. Men have friends and enemies – why do women make it so complicated?
11. Suffering and complaining
Men are convinced that women must have a certain masochistic streak. They wear high heels (which men think is good) and complain all evening that they pinch. Men don’t do that. If a shoe pinches, they take it off. And when he knows you’re going for a walk, he puts on comfortable shoes. And with her statement “Not so fast, I have high shoes on!” do nothing.
12. “Never” and “Always”
Women may have a tiny urge to dramatize things. So if he just wants to go to the pub with his boys (!), She will say “You will never take me with you!” out of it. Of course he wants her around – just not …always.
13. Order is half the battle
Yes exactly, half of it. And half of it. Most men can be tidy, but the woman is usually responsible for the structure in the house. In their system, the socks find their place in the first drawer, the boxer shorts in the second and the scarves in the third. He then understands: please put your things in the closet. And a cupboard is a cupboard – whether in a drawer, door or compartment.
14. “Do you still love me?”
Is on the same level as whether it is too fat. What is he supposed to do besides “Of course I still love you.” answer here? For men, this question is an imposition. She just wants confirmation that he loves her. He hears the suggestion that it couldn’t be so – and that’s one of the few times when he can actually read between the lines …
15. Rolling around problems – without wanting solutions
Women tend to complain about anything. But all they really want is sympathy that the colleague always overshadows the lunch break, that the sister has a new pair of shoes in the closet and that her favorite trousers have become a bit tight. He is result-oriented and pragmatic. He’s looking for a solution. But she just wants to feel understood – if you say something, it is already half done. For him absolutely incomprehensible.
After marriage, a couple wonders if they made the right decision. But not everything is a bed of roses. Regardless, when you marry a person, you marry not just the good but the bad too.
