5. When they constantly try changing them
It annoys guys a lot when their girlfriends try changing them, even if it is bit by bit. If it’s healthy change, that’s okay. My girlfriend wanted me to quit smoking, so I did, because it wasn’t good for me to smoke. That’s a positive change. A negative change is when they want you to think through a different perspective or be a different person or have a different lifestyle. It also hurts when they aren’t supportive of your dreams and visions and they want to constantly criticize everything.
6. When they don’t acknowledge their efforts
My ex used to ignore most of what I did for her, the tiny details meant nothing to her and all she cared about was the major chunk of it all, that used to hurt me a lot. Guys hate it when their efforts are left unnoticed and aren’t acknowledged. It is sort of impossible to get a guy who’s emotional and sentimental and knows how to show it, and it hurts more than anything to feel under-appreciated.
7. When they jokingly flirt with other men
Jokes are good but they can sometimes hurt. Romance plays a huge role in every relationship and if it lacks in one relationship, it should also lack outside of the relationship. A guy would just say that his girlfriend is “cool”, that she’s casual and herself around other men, but that does hurt them a little inside because of the “possessive” element. It’s the way they talk to other men, guys notice it but quietly get hurt by it because they don’t want to sound like they’re narrow minded but they’re actually just possessive because they love you, they want you to be that way with them and them alone.
8. When they talk about relationship problems in public/online
Guys hate it when their girlfriends discuss their personal issues with others, especially on social networks. It goes from being a counselling session to mere gossip and soon everyone starts giving him the looks because of some random fight he had with his girl. Fights are common in every relationship, and everyone has at least one confidant who they sometimes go to for help or advice, but they never spread their fights and issues in public.
