Guys: These Things Turn Women Off!

In Love & Sex by Meieli Sawyer Detoni

We're thinking.
It all started with a list: one by The Frisky, in response to a story by Women's Day that described things women do to turn guys off. In retaliation, they made a list of six things that guys do to piss them off... and now we're adding to the list ourselves.

This isn't a hate list, but a suggestion list. If guys quit doing things like mocking our reality TV habit and ordering for us, we'd get along better. Without further ado, here are our additions to the list:

1. Naming body parts and/or never ditching a nickname. Read about Jennifer Love Hewitt's "Pear Ass" saga, and you can probably say that this is one of the reasons for breaking up with Jamie Kennedy. Don't continue repeating nicknames you think are cute, when it's obvious your other half hates it, guys!

2. Saying "you look tired." No woman wants to be reminded that she's looking less-than-hot, and maybe she isn't even feeling tired. She might just not be wearing makeup, or she's in bad lighting. Not flattering.

3. Acting like we're dolls. You have a master's degree. So do we. Let's get on with it and come to the conclusion that we'll never know if we're intellectually level if we don't try. If you work in a technical job, explain it properly. Don't act like it's way too complicated for even layman's terms.

4. Buying food that only you like, knowing we don't. Picky eaters are bad enough, but having a live-in boyfriend who only buys for himself is even worse. The blanket solution for this one would be to keep us in mind regularly.

Are there any things that guys (or gals) do to make you crazy? Any deal-breakers or date-ruiners?

I added the "gals" part. ;)

I went on a dinner date once with some jacka** that tried to order my entree for me. I politely but firmly told him that if I can change my own oil I could handle ordering my own food. There was no second date.

Oh, please. Every single woman on the planet does this. I'm personally incapable of even visualizing the part of the store that holds canned bean dip, cheese puffs, cookie dough ice cream, or frozen pizza rolls. The only reason Mr. Snaps even goes to the store with me is to practice defensive shopping. :D

One of the things that drove me crazy with Yvette was that if we went to a restaurant she would order only a salad or something light like that then eat off of my plate. "Can I have some of that."

This isn't a "turn-off" (I'd be divorced) but I'm always astonished that men simply can't see things in front them. Dust, dog barf, that Seventh Day Adventist who collapsed in the foyer....they can't see it.

However, men can detect cleavage/hot wings from space. :confused:

Gotta disagree. Women don't balance checkbook registers. Wanna go shopping at Walmart - alone - with the checkbook. Generally treat the oven as a crematorium. Complain about hubby's driving, but have all the accidents. Think that cleavage is all that matters in appearance.

Think that cleavage is all that matters in appearance? News Flash, that IS all that matters, well that and the view while they storm away after you mention that they "Look tired". :D

LOL! I do our investments so you better believe I know where the accounts are on any given day. I clean my oven 'old school' since it's a million years old and I fear it's so-called 'clean cycle'.

Last night/afternoon Mr. Snaps apparently left a sack of mini-marshmallows out and the dogs ate them. I came home to various little piles of marshmallow dog barf. He literally did not see this until I pointed it out.

Men do not seriously believe that the future happens. Sure, in movies maybe but not in real life. This is why none of them get their hair cut without women nagging. :p

Annoying habits of the opposite sex are best avoided if they
never have a key to your house. Reason #832 I live alone.



Don't continue repeating nicknames you think are cute,
when it's obvious your other half hates it, guys!

I act like a complete moron when we go shopping and my wife still drags me along.

Reason #1 for me is that my money is my money. If I don't want to balance the checkbook on paper, I don't have to.

Money is a bigger problem between spouses than sex or in-laws. I don't think it's quantity as much as where it is and how it's used.
