This morning I would’ve punched my boyfriend square in his jaw if he had been within punching distance; we cant actually see each other until the fourth of February, as I am on a trip per se. Until that time, we are communicating via phone. This little set up requires that he wake up an hour or two early to talk- today he woke up long enough to tell me he missed and loved me, then went right back to sleep. Because of this, I spent our designated talking time checking my email and Facebook. It may not seem like a big deal, and it’s not, however, it is one of those things that drive me absolutely crazy. So, to help you guys out there not to be like my boyfriend, here are four things you should avoid doing; so you wont drive your lady absolutely berserk.
This one should be obvious, but to many men it seems to not stick. We know when you are not listening, and saying “uh huh” every couple of minutes doesn’t help your case at all. It is more obvious then you know when you are not listening, so at least half listen to us, because yes it will be on the test!
Not Text Back
This one drives me absolutely crazy, and that is why it’s on this list, especially considering it clearly says that he saw my text. Half of the time, all he has to do is respond with a “sure,”okay honey,” or a “no not now.” Instead, you know what he says? Not a #*$*$ thing. Yet he wonders why I send him 50 thousand texts saying the exact same thing over and over again. So for the sake of your partner’s sanity, just text back- you don’t have to say a lot, just answer the question.
My boyfriend is the king at overreacting. I can say something that doesn’t make sense, or is not exactly what he wants to hear, and suddenly he is red in the face and the whole house is echoing from his yelling. So please, guys, take a chill pill and actually understand the situation at hand instead of letting everyone in the neighborhood hear your yelling.
Not Discussing Money Spending
This one really goes to couples who live together, both physically and financially. This bothers all women because for a lot of us, security is everything. Of course, don’t go over every pack of gum you buy. If it’s more than $60, you might want to let her know about it so she doesn’t freak out later.
My boyfriend has done all of these things at one point in time or another, and while it drives me completely and totally crazy, I still love him. He tries not to do these things because he knows it bugs me, just like I try not to flirt with the guy who makes my sandwich at Subway because it bugs him. Us ladies know you guys aren’t perfect, and we don’t expect you to be (at least the sane ones of us don’t), but for the love of all that is holy, if you know something drives us crazy, at least do your best to avoid doing it, or not doing it in front of us.
