You’ll be surprised to know that, no matter how diverse their background, most men admit to having about the same dislikes when it comes to a woman’s behavior. We’ve narrowed the list of complaints down to 12 issues. But, don’t worry, ladies! There’s always room for improvement.
#1. Monopolizing all his spare time
Guys hate it when you expect them to dedicate every spare moment in their lives to being with you. Spending time together is great, of course, but don’t expect them to ditch their friends and their hobbies for your relationship. Your boyfriend is his own person after all. Word of advice: give him space and he will love you more for it.
#2. Too much emotion over the small things
Men hate drama. That includes tears shed over broken nails or heels, smashed perfume bottles or bad hair days. They can’t identify with your over the top emotional reactions, which tire them out. So, whenever you feel like crying or making a scene, ask yourself if it’s really worth it.

#3. Too much talk
Why can’t we speak only when we have something meaningful to say? Because the world would be very boring if we did. Nevertheless, most men hate it when we talk nonsense or giggle at the most insignificant things.
#4. Constantly keeping in touch
Yes, it’s sweet the first time you do it. It shows that you’re thinking about him. But nagging him all day, every day, with phone calls and messages is borderline stalker behavior. Trust him and give him some space.

Guys hate it when you pester them about doing chores around the house. They say you’d get better results if you thanked your man for helping out once in a while, instead of nagging him about all the things he hasn’t done yet.
Looking through his things or his phone without permission is a big no-no. He will trust you less and become even more secretive because of your misguided curiosity.
#7. Telling embarrassing stories
Would you like it if your man told people about your most embarrassing moments? I bet you wouldn’t. But some women get a kick out of downgrading their partners, and that’s wrong on so many levels. Praise him more instead. He deserves it.
#8. What are you thinking about?
This question drives men crazy. Crazy mad that is. Why would you need to know his thoughts at any given time? If he wanted you to know what he’s thinking about, he’d tell you himself.
#9. Too much makeup
There’s a very popular rumor going around that men like women in slutty clothes, with perfect makeup and flawless skin. Well, yes, healthy-looking skin is attractive, but not if you overdo it with the makeup to the point where you can’t tell what’s real and what’s not. In reality, men like authentic women.
#10. Diet talk
Guys are not interested in the latest diet fads or in your struggles with reaching the perfect shape. They like to see results. So, less talking, more doing.
#11. Being (fashionably) late
There is no such thing in a man’s vocabulary. Being late is disrespectful, no matter how you package it.
#12. Uncultured women
If you’re not interested in anything else except your Facebook or Instagram persona, you’re definitely not scoring many points with men. For them to find you truly attractive, you need to grow as a person, to show that you’re intellectually active. In other words, try to be a good conversation partner, not just a sex buddy.
