3 female habits that kill relationships

16 February 2016, 12:21 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Sometimes women use tactics that destroy relationships. Here are some.


Losing an argument; cry! He is not agreeing to your side of things; cry! You want things your way; cry! You do not want to explain yourself; guilt trip, then start crying!

All of the above scenarios are a tactic that is generally used by a lot of women, they look like they are working at the time but they will eventually make you lose. It will become so expected in your relationship, the moment you actually do want to discuss something; he shuts down because he thinks or knows you will cry to make it go your way. It will reach a point in your relationship; he will reconcile this habit to being a childish trait of yours that the guy will no longer want to be with you. This is when a man will tell you, ‘I came into this hoping for a woman but it seems you are a child in a woman’s body. I need a real woman to be my partner, and wife.’

What will you do about it? Nothing because the damage is already done no matter how much you cry you have changed.

Using sex as a weapon or bargaining chip

‘We can have sex if you agree to….’; or ‘Help me with this and we will…’; ‘Get me this and we can have sex…’ No matter how many times you tell women not to use sex as a tool, only if it is a game the two of you play or are in agreement with. For example; your man offers to help you with dishes because he wants to have the fun stuff afterwards. That is different but if for every situation; you have to bargain or use it to make him do something, you will eventually lose. It becomes boring and tedious and it eventually leads to someone seeking out. Why should he not be with a woman chasing him and offering it on a platter when you are always giving him a hard time?

Using private conversation to get him to your side

Maybe he told you something personal about his family, or work or boss, or whatever it is. You know it is meant to be kept between the two of you but wait until you want something to go your way. Maybe it is that brother you do not like visiting or the friend that you do not like but now you know he is cheating on his wife because your man told you. Now in order for you to get things on your footing; you use that information to make your man do what you want or say by making things uncomfortable. You do not necessarily say it but you do slip ups as a threat if he does not agree until he does. That is the last time you will ever hear your man tell you anything, trust me. That is when a few years later, women complain about how their man never opens up to them. You forget what you did a couple of years back.
