So you’ve been on datepositive.net for a while and you’ve started dating?
That’s great. If you are looking for a relationship, either short or long term, it’s worthwhile addressing one of the things that can quickly destroy a good thing – complaining, better known as nagging.
This week, datepositive.net will take a look at the things women complain about in regards to men. Firstly though it seems that men do think that women like to complain or nag. I am pretty sure that isn’t true and would like to suggest that the solution is we all try to complain a bit less and try harder to make a partner’s happy, then that’s a good start.
Remember, complaining or criticising can destroy a good thing, so try to keep your relationship a happy and nag-free one.
Too much swearing: Women are guilty of this too. But it seems that some men use really bad language too often in front of women and for the most part most women don’t like it – especially if there are kids around.
Helping with tidying up or housework: OK, so you are just dating and it’s still a pretty romantic time. Nevertheless, if you help around her place a bit, you can show that you’re a team player and and care about her, especially at the end of a long day.
Expecting her to tidy your place: Connected to the point above is expecting your girlfriend to tidy your place. If you have had a really busy time and she wants to help out, that’s one thing. But dating a woman in the hopes that she will tidy your mess or cook for you is a big no-no.
Leaving the toilet seat up: This is an old one and it is usually number one of most people’s list. It’s not just that the seat is up, sometimes a guy’s aim isn’t quite right and the splashing is off-putting. Women particularly don’t like the seat being left up at night when the might use the toilet in the dark.
Leaving your clothes all around your room: Expecting a romantic and hot night with your girlfriend? Don’t expect her to be too thrilled to go into your room and find your stuff everywhere, or dirty dishes lying about. Take time to tidy up a bit – it doesn’t have to be perfect – and she will be impressed.
Bringing dirt into the house: This is usually about not wiping feet and/or leaving shoes on. More and more this is an accepted form of behaviour now when entering someone’s house. So if you’ve been hiking, gardening or messing around in the garage, give your shoes a quick wipe.
So guys, check out this list and give it a bit of consideration. Women hate to nag, so don’t make it easy for them. Keep the criticisms out of the relationship and love is sure to grow.
