7 hurtful things men shouldn’t do in relationships
It’s understandable that out of the billion men in the world, only a handful are actual Prince Charmings.
Men or women, we’re all human beings after all, and with that being said we carry flaws and mistakes, together with our other more desirable traits.
There’s no perfect boyfriend, especially when it comes to relationships. You must accept whatever comes with the whole package.
But of course, as a man, there are some actions and some lines that you should never ever cross. Below is a list of seven hurtful things that men should never do or should stop doing in a relationships:
1. Cheat on her
The number one mortal sin on every woman’s list. You should never cheat on your lady love. You could count off every excuse in the book but it will never justify this horrible action. Be responsible enough to secure yourself before going into a relationship.
2. Lie to her face
Never lie about the little things because if you can do this, it would be much easier for you to lie about the big things. In fact, why lie in the first place? Relationships are built on trust and transparency with no room for lies.
It’s acceptable to make mistakes at first, but if you keep repeating them and apologizing for the same things over and over again, then it’s a different story.
3. Ignore her feelings
Your girlfriend is there for a reason. She is your best friend, confidant, and the love of your life. She isn’t a blank wall you can talk to whenever you feel like it. She is a human being and her thoughts and feelings matter.
Every relationship is a two-way street and it’s not always about you. Respect her and her opinions, listen to her, and never ever ignore her feelings nor discount them as being irrational.
4. Hurt her heart
A true man never hurts his woman, physically, emotionally, or mentally. He would never dare to lay a hand on her skin, spat a hurtful word at her, or play mean tricks with her feelings. Unfortunately, there are a lot of men who are like this, so don’t be one.
If you find yourself having a short temper during fights, then practice your patience by counting to ten, shutting your mouth, or asking for some personal time.
5. Be unsupportive
As a boyfriend, you are supposed to be her number one fan. There isn’t an excuse in any book that would account for missed anniversary dinners, unattended birthday parties, or unanswered phone calls.
When you decide to be in a relationship, you agree to be there during the important moments. No matter how mundane the event might be for you. You should hold her hand and make her feel important.
6. Treat her as an option
A lot of people date for fun, but oftentimes, this kind of approach will leave a string of broken hearts. If you decide to be in a committed and loving relationship, then obviously you can’t treat your girlfriend as just another option.
You can’t go and meet other women and then come back to her when they drop you. You can’t spend time with her after asking everybody else and knowing that nobody else is available. You can never ever make her feel as if she’s just a choice.
7. Degrade her as a person
This is a cruel act that many people do and they oftentimes do this subconsciously or without being aware of it at all. Degrading your girlfriend can come in different ways. If you make fun of her dreams, nitpick on her actions, or insult her personality, you are already degrading her.
One might argue: but I’m only teasing her. There is a fine line between teasing and being downright mean.
