20 Things Guys Should Never Tell Their Girlfriends

Love & Learn 50

Kids may say the darnedest things, but guys? Guys are often worse.

I'm not sure if it's a tact gene that's missing from the Y chromosome, but most dudes I know are some of the biggest offenders when it comes to saying the wrong thing.

So guys, listen up: Here are a bunch of things you should NEVER say to your girlfriend.

1) "You're not the prettiest girl I've dated." So what if it's true? You may not be the hottest guy WE'VE dated, but we're not about to SAY so.

2) "You look like my ex." No one wants to be compared to an ex -- unless the ex is a model.

3) "You'd look better if [insert physical characteristic here]." Guys? We don't need to be told we should improve how we look. End of story. 

4) "That waitress/chick at the bar is hot!" We get it -- other chicks are hot. We also have eyeballs to see for ourselves. 

5) "My mom thinks you should [insert behavior change here]." We like that you've got a good relationship with your mom and all, but we don't need to hear what she thinks we need to improve.

6) "Your sister is a bitch." Hey, we're tight with our family -- family is off-limits. End of story.

7) "If you REALLY loved me, you'd [insert weird sex act here]." Guys, if you really loved US, you wouldn't say that kind of thing.

8) "Wow, you're a lot like your Mom." We may love our mother dearly -- but every girl has a secret fear of turning into her.

9) "I don't want to have sex tonight." It's a double-standard, we know, but it hurts our feelings to hear.

10) "We should go on a diet." We don't need you to remind us we need to drop a few pounds.

11) "Let's have a threesome with your best friend -- she's hot." Just, no. 

12) "This one time I [incredibly long, detailed story about a sexual encounter]." We know you've had sex before us -- but we don't need it rubbed in our face. 

13) "You're being too emotional." Guys, that's what we DO! We're emotional creatures! Leave us to it!

14) "There's no way that small shirt is gonna fit you." We don't need fashion advice from you, Mr. Potbelly.

15) "C'mon, I hate using condoms." Safe sex is where it's at -- you don't like it? There's the door.

16) "What's your (sex) number?" Not your business, thankyouverymuch. 

17) "You're overreacting." Trust us, we'll figure it out. Just let us vent.

18) "Is it 'that time of the month'? Because you're being a bitch." Guys, don't assume we're crabby because we're on our periods.

19) "You look really different in the mornings." Okay, so we don't wake up freshly showered with a full face of makeup. Sue us.

20) "It's a guy thing. You wouldn't understand." Actually, we probably do understand ... that you're a douche-bag.

I can't believe any guy who'd say these things to a woman he was dating would ever get as far as "boyfriend" status.

As far as number 6 is concerned...my sister really is a bitch but I'm the only one that can say that. Lol at least that's the way I feel about it.

"I think your boobs got smaller." Bad. Bad. Bad.

Maria Clarke

LOL!  I agree with all the comments!  And yes, if a boyfriend were to say any of those would make you stop & think.

Your better at cooking than my ex but she can * without gaging.

So of those I don't see a problem with them. Why would I want my boyfriend/husband let me walk out the door in a shirt too tight. My and my husband comment on hot women together. Some things we do overreact too then later we look like a fool when we have to bite the bullet and apologize sorry but if we can say no not tonight and he understand we should be able to take it when he say no.

I had a BF who told me that my hips were bigger than he was used to.....I told him that his D*%! was a lot smaller than I am used to......He shut his mouth after that!

LOL to Heather's comment! :) The whole saying "the waitress is hot" thing doesn't bother me. But, if it becomes excessive, then maybe I'll change my tune. I'm usually the one who will say, "wow, she's really pretty" or something along those lines. Of course my fiance usually doesn't argue with me when I do. Lol.

3 of those are actually forms of a abuse. So yeah..emotional and verbal abuse is a big no-no
