Women are called the “fairer” sex for a reason, they are inherently capable of being more dainty and pleasing than the “grosser” sex, the men. As the saying goes, girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice, which is why they are perfectly complementary to men.
Men get turned on at the drop of a hat, and most women know that it does not take much for them to have a man jumping the hoops. But as humans, men are just as prone to being repulsed by certain tendencies in women which induce a complete turn off. Here are a few of them.
1.) Giving him the silent treatment
Most women have a tendency to use “silent” treatment when they are hurt or angry about a certain behavior in their man. They put on a cold front and refuse to reply in a normal manner.
The usual reply to all the queries that a guy puts through would be a pert “nothing”.
It is but obvious that this can be highly irritating . A man would be much happier if his woman is willing to talk out the issues instead of starting a cold war.
2.) Being overly possessive
Men are usually the “chasers” and they like to stay that way. If a guy finds out a girl is “chasing” him, he is bound to lose his interest in her. To keep the guy interested you must remain to be a challenge.
If you get overly possessive about him it would just turn him off.
3.) Nagging him
There is something about men that gets women to nag them especially as the relationship ages. Most men complain about the hard time they have contending with the continuous complaints and scorns that their wife dishes out in the name of self improvement.
Women on the other hand have no clue what the fuss is all about, after all they are only trying to “improve” their man.
4.) Being a female chauvinist
“Women are better than men!”
A man and a woman are made in the image of God as the Bible puts it. And it’s quite obvious that a man needs a woman to complete him and vice versa.
In spite of this there are certain people, in each sex, that end up becoming chauvinistic.
A feministic attitude, or a bossy nature, in a woman is what men find extremely irritating, and it’s a big turn off. Many feminists would like men to conform to certain unnatural standards that are completely contrary to a manly nature.
A woman who depicts such an attitude would soon find her man running away from her.
5.) Comparing him to other men
Comparison never feels good.
Avoid comparing your man to other men. Never compare him to your father, brother(s), relative(s), colleague(s) your boss or your guy friends.
A statement like, “My dad is so good at this; he would have repaired this sink in no time“, is not very reassuring and not something that your man wants to hear when he is trying his best to fix the sink.
Even though you may not find anything wrong with that statement, for him, it rings in the message that you don’t find him competent enough.
6.) Downplaying his physical attributes
Consider this statement: “Oh, your fingers are so small and soft!”
This statement might seem utterly harmless from your point of view, but for a man, this can be devastating. Most men want to appear manly and want their girlfriend to see them that way. A comment like the above will make him feel that you do not consider him man enough and will put him off.
7.) Commenting negatively on his driving skills
“Concentrate on the road please!“.
“Next time, let me drive!“.
“You drive too slow“.
“Are you sure this is the right route?“.
Statements like the above can shut down a man.
Men pride themselves on their ability to drive and get you places. This plays on their primary need to be in control. So comments that even remotely imply that he is a bad driver will not go down well with him.
To his male brain, you telling him that he is not a good driver implies that you don’t feel safe with him and that you don’t trust his abilities as a man.
8.) Not acknowledging his body as sexy
Just like you want your man to get ‘turned on’ by your body, he wants you to get equally ‘turned on’ by his body.
If you do not show any signs of getting turned on, his own interest in you will start declining over time. So never shy away from complimenting your man’s body. Shower his body with kisses, caresses his body and show him that you do get turned on by both his physical and mental attributes.
But then again, you don’t need to fake it. If you don’t feel turned on by his body, you might as well call the relationship quits.
9.) Not valuing his solutions
“That’s a lame solution, I have a better idea!”
Men pride themselves in offering solutions to problems. So constantly rejecting his solutions will not go well with him. At some point he will start to feel remorse and the sense that you don’t find him competent enough.
10.) Looking at other men in his presence
A subtle glance is fine, but outright staring at other men in his presence will make him feel disrespected and turned-off. This is similar to how a woman might feel if she finds her man checking out other women in her presence. So avoid this at all costs.
These are some things that can act as a turn off to most men. Women can come up with an infinite list of things about men that turns them off, but the fact remains that men and women complement each other and its beauty is most evident in an intimate, and healthy, relationship.
