3 male habits women cannot stand
17 January 2016, 12:32
Nairobi - You are just sitting there with a group of friends, a local,
a pub, a fancy place, whatever; just having a good time. But there is always
that one man who likes to think he can give the rest of us (women) advise since
he has apparently been in a relationship with one ‘all his entire life’. At
first you would pay attention because what the hell, it is just a Saturday
afternoon and you are all just trying to have a good time. No need for drama;
but it sort of gets old and pretty much annoying.
‘Our relationship works because she does this’, ‘our
relationship works because she agreed on –something-eventually’, ‘even my
sister agrees’ this is finished by, ‘if you would do the same, he just might’.
Advice even though it is at times good naturedly given can ruin your chances on
something or with someone. Advice that tells you to behave like someone or act
like a certain someone is never good advice. Period! And when it is coming from
your man asking you to behave like so and so, then he is not your man. You can
ask him to go be with her.
Most men do not like
this, even me!
The thing is, I am not trying to date a man like you,
so….that is all irrelevant but because I am not trying to be rude I just shut
up. Not all women will want the same qualities that one man has. We might like
one or two here, three there or none from this one but you can never have the
whole package where each women is concerned. We are different, with different
want and needs. Once a man respects that, then we will get a long pretty well.
Assuming that you know
everything about someone because you know one from their species does not make
you an expert
The one who has a sister, a girlfriend, a wife, a host of
female friends; you are still not an expert of the next woman that you meet.
You might get off sounding offensive because of your generalization.
Let me give a perfect example. I was dating someone once and
he had a habit of telling me the outfit would have looked better if I had worn
it with some other thing he would mention. But do you know where? Not in the
house but while we had already left and in a matatu or our destination. I was
just like, ‘why wouldn’t you say something while I was in the house, next to my
closet, so that I could actually do something about it?’ So you spend the rest
of the day thinking, that you might have looked better if you had actually done
this. His excuse was, ‘I just did not want you to feel bad because I know how
my sister gets!’ I just told him, ‘from now on if you did not say something
before I left the house, then do not say anything at all.’
