Top 4 Complaints Men Have About Women
Published: Wednesday, October 19, 2011
1. Your expectations are too high
Ever heard of Prince Charming? Have you also heard that he doesn’t exist? A woman expects that her love story is going to be like a movie or a Nicholas Sparks novel. This isn’t real. While we women would say that we know that Hollywood does it up big and that it is all a fantasy, we might not even notice when our man does something out of love, like clean up the kitchen after dinner or wash our car for us. We expect the weak-in-the-knees kind of love and we often don’t realize all of the other great things they do for us.
2. You want to know what’s next
Women are always contemplating the future. What are we? Where is this relationship going? Men usually worry about where their next meal is coming from and that’s as far into the future as they get. Men don’t have the drive that women do to figure out the future right here and now, they just want to enjoy the ride and let the chips fall where they may. When a woman can’t settle down and enjoy the present as well, it can leave a man irritated and annoyed.
3. You think men are a work in progress
We see potential and what a man COULD be. When we date men and perhaps even marry them, we see their rough edges and think of how we can change or fix them to be our “perfect man.” Stop right there. Men are the way they are because they want to be that way! The hobbies they have and the company they keep were chosen because they love them. They don’t want to be fixed. Do these guys a favor and either love them the way they are or find yourself another man.
4. You play too hard to get
Women are told to keep a man guessing. Play hard to get so that men will pursue you because they like the chase. But men don’t want to chase you if you really don’t want to be caught. Be honest with your feelings. If you like a man, then let him know. If you don’t, don’t lead him on just for the thrill of the chase.
Now that you know some of men’s biggest complaints about women, try to steer clear of them. After all, you don’t want to give your man any reason to resent you in the future!
