Ladies, apparently we annoy the crap out of men. Well, I never!
Nah, it’s cool, I get it. Women annoy men, men annoy women; all’s fair in love and war. But in case you ever wondered what the female species could possibly ever do to annoy men so much, I offer 6 of men’s biggest complaints about women from eHarmony.
Romantic movie expectations: Men are sick and tired of women expecting them to build big white houses with blue shutters à la The Notebook. According to the article, women have been so brainwashed to expect movie romance that we don’t recognize “real acts of love” when they happen – citing his replacement of your bald tires as an example. OK then, if a real act of love is tire replacement, then a real act of sex is folding laundry. Now we’re even.
Crying to get what we want: Put away those weapons of lash destruction, you She Devil! Men are asking we stop using our emotions as weapons because sad is not allowed. (And here you thought you were crying because he insinuated you were fat.)
We’re confusing: We say one thing and mean another; the men no likey. I have to wonder, if they know we do this, what’s the problem again?
Where is this going?: Ladies, how dare you ask where your relationship is going. He wants you to enjoy the now and hope that someday he’ll decide to put a ring on it before your biological clock craps out. Stop asking him questions; you’re stressing him out.
Stop it some more: Apparently men find a woman playing coy to be annoying and juvenile. How else are we supposed to be “a lady on the street and a freak in the bed,” huh?
Inquiring minds want to know: Men suggest we stop asking what they’re thinking and watch what they’re doing instead. Just so I understand…if you’re drinking a beer, you’re actually thinking about drinking a beer? Never mind, that makes perfect sense.
