14 Guys Share The Common Relationship Mistakes Girls Make

“Maybe this is more a dating mistake than a relationship mistake: Never suggesting plans or counter-offers when a plan doesn’t work for you. Otherwise, I’m just going to assume you’re not that interested in going out with me. So, if you are interested, please make a counter-offer or just suggest something you think would be fun to do next time we go out.” — bradradio

“A lot of girls don’t really bother complimenting their guy and it sucks ass.” — [deleted]

“Not being yourself, not being open, not being a friend first. I dated a number of women who hid stuff until we slept together and then dumped it on me. That was a drag and it seems really manipulative to me.” — CetteChanson

“Thinking that when we are a couple our behaviors will change. Or when we get married we will stop playing video games or hanging out with the guys. Nope, the dynamic we have when dating… it will continue.” — asedillo

“Assuming the worst. Communication is an imprecise art. Any given sentence can probably be interpreted in five different ways. I see many women who automatically assume that, of those five ways, he must have meant the one that is the worst. When we started dating, I told my wife, ‘If I say something and it can be taken two ways, and one of those ways makes you upset, trust me, I meant the other one. I’d never say anything to hurt you.'” — drsameagle

“My SO never apologizes for anything. She is flawless. It’s her worst trait.” — Cornelius280

“Not having a life outside of your SO. It’s healthy to have different groups of friends and different hobbies so don’t forget who and what made you happy before you were in a relationship.” — FarmerAndy96

“Not telling us what’s wrong. It’s a cliché, but it is so true. Like just tell me.” — PM_ME_YOUR_PLECTRUMS

“Having the PERFECT RELATIONSHIP fantasy, and the unspoken metric by which they judge a relationship and being upset when someone fails to meet the metrics they never expressed.” — cacophony_of_silence

“Not giving your boyfriend space. I can understand wanting to be with that person, but everyone needs alone time, whether it be a little or a lot. Not saying you shouldn’t spend time together, but every now and again when he gets in front of the console and/or goes hanging with the boys, let him be (provided he’s not doing anything too stupid). A couple hours apart won’t kill you. But my fellow guys, also make sure to spend time with your girlfriend, it’s a team effort.” — Alpha1645

“Girls, don’t be the type to threaten to end the relationship through a petty ultimatum. I guarantee you that if you hit the average male with a it’s either me or the video games, you’re gonna be disappointed by his choice.” — SalemWitchBurial

“Telling friends/coworkers only about the shitty things their boyfriends do then asking for advice and being shocked when they’re told ‘he seems horrible, dump him’ not only shocked but then actively angry that people would ‘misread’ the situation. The thing is if you want good advice a girl needs to include good things he does, bad things she does, good things she does. If people only know that he constantly shirks helping with the laundry but don’t know he’s working 12 hour days while she’s working 5 hour days then their advice is going to be based on the impression that he’s a lazy asshole that makes her do everything.” — jackfaire

“Women who think they’ve hit the jackpot by stealing some other girl’s man. If he’ll cheat with you, he’ll cheat on you. It’s just a matter of time.” — BlackDahliaWitch

“Needlessly playing hard to get, as if it’s some weird rule in a game. If you like someone or enjoyed spending time together (or even if you didn’t), be clear about it. It’s really that simple.” — hescrepuscular
