There are a lot of guys out there that don’t get enough credit for being a gentleman and doing unexpectedly nice things for women (whether it's their girlfriend, a girl they’re casually talking to, or their wife). However, there are plenty of things that guys do that annoy the crap out of girls. Trust us, you don’t need to ask your girl if this is true (unless you have an hour or two to spare to hear her rant about your annoying habits). And she might not even tell you anyway, because she likes you, and wants to be nice. But here at The Richest, we are totally impartial, and will give you the honest truth.
So if you’re looking to improve your relations with that special girl in your life, you’re in luck. We’ve put together this list of 15 things guys do that really annoys girls, so you can see which habits you can work on a bit and why they’re so annoying to your girl. Of course, not all guys do every single thing on this list. But if you’re a guy, you’ve gotta admit you’ve done—and still do—a few of them.
15 Forcing Her To Like Your Bro's Girlfriend
In an ideal world, all girlfriends would get along perfectly with their boyfriend’s best friend’s girlfriend (are you still with us?). Note the word “ideal.” It’s just too bad that things aren’t always ideal. This is a fact of life that everyone needs to accept. Otherwise, disappointment will ensue. Sure, Angela might be a nice girl, but is everyone friends with everyone else who’s nice? No. There’s more to a friendship than just thinking the other person is nice. If two people have hardly anything in common, then attempting to force them into a friendship with each other is just pure torture.
14 Forgetting Anniversaries
It’s one of the classic things that annoy girls—forgetting anniversaries. In fact, it’s not just forgetting anniversaries that annoy girls, it’s forgetting their birthday, forgetting Valentine’s Day and so on. Why is this annoying? Well, many girls typically place importance on these days and when a guy forgets, it makes it seem as though he doesn’t care (about her, about the relationship). Women usually look forward to these special days and—whether it’s right or wrong—they expect something (a romantic homemade dinner, flowers, a gift).
13 Wearing Too Much Cologne
Women love the smell of cologne, but not when a guy sprays the entire bottle on his body just before meeting up. It’s annoying to girls because it’s actually inconsiderate. High scents cause many people to be uncomfortable and may even give them a headache. Not only that, but when guys do this, it comes across to a female as though they’re trying too hard (and chances are, that’s the case… unless they accidentally spilled a bottle of cologne on themselves).
12 Saying She’s PMS-ing When She's Mad
11 Your Place Is A Mess
Many people are under the impression that a room says a lot about a person. That’s one of the reasons there was that show on MTV back in the day called Room Raiders (remember that?). The extent to which a room actually says anything true about a person, their life or their personality is debatable. What does a messy room (with dirty laundry, papers and dishes everywhere) say to a girl about a guy? For starters, it says to her the guy is messy (that one’s obvious). And if a guy is messy, a girl who’s looking for a long-term relationship will worry that their future house together will be messy, too (yes, girls actually think about this stuff). It also makes girls think that the guy’s life is probably just as disorganized. Finally, it shows the girl that this guy just doesn’t care. He should at least have the courtesy to clean his room up a bit if he’s expecting company. It’s like showing up to a date with uncombed hair and teeth (nasty).
10 Staring At Her Body
Here’s another one of the classic things that guys do which annoys girls. Of course a girl likes it when her physical beauty is being acknowledged, but there’s a time and a place for everything (and there’s a creepy way of acknowledging beauty, as there is a way that will get a positive reaction). Girls hate it when they’re talking (especially if it’s about something serious) and a guy’s eyeballs basically do a back and forth between her chest and her face. Girls are a bit easier on their long-term boyfriends with this, but if a guy just met a girl and is already doing this, he can start preparing for the angry goodbye.
9 Questioning What She Buys
Unless you’re the one footing the bill, don’t question the stuff a girl buys. Girls have their reason for buying that expensive nail polish and that book they could probably just borrow from the library (just as a guy has their reasons for buying those expensive headphones and yet another pair of sneakers). If a girl is working for her own money, it’s up to her what she does with it. If guys stop questioning girls about things like this, girls will also stop questioning guys about his purchases (well, they’ll ease up on it, at least).
8 Taking Forever To Reply To Her Texts
Nothing irritates a girl (or anyone for that matter) more than someone who takes approximately 55 minutes or longer to reply to a text. Everyone knows that everyone else has their phone on them at all times (unless their job is super strict). What’s more irritating is when a guy is responding to texts then a girl asks a serious question and the guy doesn’t respond for hours (or days). They know you saw the text and they know you’re avoiding them.
7 Talking About Your Ex
If you’re gonna talk about your ex, don’t forget to include all the good memories you guys had together and the intimate conversations you had!
6 Telling Her She Wears Too Much Makeup
So, a girl wears mascara, concealer, foundation, eyeshadow and a bunch of other makeup items that guys didn’t even know existed. What’s a guy to do? Well, we’ll tell you what they most certainly should not do—tell the girl she’s wearing too much makeup. Girls can wear whatever they want, whether that refers to clothing or makeup. Of course, if a guy should let a girl wear whatever she wants in peace then the same thing should apply vice-versa.
5 Telling Her To Smile
4 Getting Grossed Out At The Word “Period”
This is one that every girl can agree on. When guys get grossed out at the mention of a girl’s period, it’s annoying to her. It makes her think that he’s as immature as one can be. Periods are a natural part of a woman’s life. And they’re something that guys should be grateful for (especially if they don’t want a bunch of kids at the moment).
3 Checking Out Other Girls
We all have eyes; so naturally, our eyes will land on people (including those of the opposite sex). Most women won’t have a problem with this when it involves the guy they’re seeing and a random female. But, they will have a problem if the guy is staring down an obviously attractive woman. Worse still, is if a guy positively comments on another woman’s looks (whether that’s in person or on social media).
2 Putting No Effort into Date Plans
Okay, not all guys suck at planning dates. There are some guys who really are like Channing Tatum in The Vow (planning all the special dates he had with his wife who lost her memory). But, there are some guys who will say that they want to go out then when asked where, they’ll say, “I don’t know,” or “You choose.” Or, they’ll just suggest yet another restaurant and another movie (AKA the most overdone kind of date ever). This type of non-effort annoys girls. You know what girls really want? They want something new, something exciting or something romantic (or a combination of these three things).
1 Asking To Put Stuff In Her Purse
For many women, their purse is like a gamer guy’s PS3—cherished and their life kinda revolves around it. Women carry just about everything in their purse: makeup (in case they need a touch-up after the rain falls), a nail file (because they never know when they’ll break a nail), pads/tampons (that one’s a given), painkillers (see previous item), phone charger (they need their phones so they can text their BFF every detail of their life as it happens), some form of entertainment (book, iPad etc.) in case her phone dies or her charger gets lost or stolen, lotion (this is a thing only girls will understand) and so much more. Between all of that stuff, do you think there’s any room for her to keep a guy’s stuff? No, there’s not. Girls hate it when guys ask them to carry their stuff around. It just adds weight onto their arms and what makes it more annoying is that the guy rarely uses the stuff.
