6 Things All Men Need To Stop Doing In Relationships

1. Staring at other women.

When you’re walking with your girlfriend and you glance to the right because the lady walking in the opposite direction has size D cups, that’s really f*cked up. Your girl may playfully slap you on the shoulder and say “I saw that” but deep down she probably feels more than just slighted.

Pay attention to what’s important to you. When LeBron James is about to take a free throw, he is only focused on the hoop. He is not distracted by any of the fans. Have you ever seen some of the women who have court side seats in the NBA arenas? Not to mention those Victoria’s Secret model lookalike cheerleaders who can flip and shake those pompoms. All I’m saying is, if LeBron can be surrounded by all those gorgeous women and still focus on basketball, then you can easily walk around the mall without being sidetracked by a cutie—even if she has a big booty.

2. Making a big deal when their girl goes out with her girlfriends.

Try not to complain when she hangs out with her friends. It’s not right to be controlling. She needs her s p a c e. If you limit her social life, she’s is going to be clingy and then you’re going to have a serious problem.

3. Acting lame in bed.

Women enjoy making love, and you must satisfy their needs. The one-minute thing is not going to cut it. Your neighbor’s need to know how great you are. So, if you require stamina, run 5km. If you need strength, lift weights. If you’re impotent, drink babba roots.

I’m not saying that you need to be a conquistador in bed, but I am telling you that you need to do a good job. Don’t take a lackadaisical approach and expect her to be satisfied. Would you like it if a woman turned you on and then left you with blue balls?

Incidentally, PLEASE do not ask her “Was the sex good?” You’ll never know the truth.

4. Making their girlfriends feel insecure.

Remember when your girl used to confidently wear a bikini to the beach? Have you noticed that she takes a little longer to remove the sarong these days? Have you observed that she strategically enters the water when everyone else is distracted?

Some women gain weight over time, even those who work out and diet. This can be very frustrating. So, try not to make cheeky remarks about her weight. There’s always the chance that some other guy is saying the right things to help her regain her confidence.

5. Telling her to calm down.

When another woman sends you a late night text, you’re in deep trouble, even if you haven’t done anything wrong. So instead of getting defensive, you need to allow her to vent. It’s in your best interest to cooperate and answer her questions over and over again “Who is this b*tch?” “Why is she calling you babe?” “Does she know you have a girl?” No matter how your girlfriend reacts, do not tell her to calm down, or else you’re really gonna see crazy.

6. Selective hearing.

I know you are more interested in talking about athletes that don’t give a shit about you, but trust me, you should make listening to your girlfriend a priority. She actually cares about you. If she’s telling you about her day, don’t sit there thinking about the starting line-up for the game on Saturday. Take my silly advice, don’t be the numpty who zones out of the conversations constantly. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
