The “male ego” is usually the most sensitive aspect of a guy’s nature. The fact, that most men live in their “heads” accounts for the king size egos that they carry. Men are “mind” centric and usually have core issues with their “self image”. It would be impossible to find a man who does not feel touchy about his self image. Men, in general, are very egoistic – you can say it’s almost genetic.
Many girls fail to understand the “ego” aspect of a male nature. More relationships would be successful if a girl is willing to make “allowances” for her boyfriend’s, or husband’s, male ego which is bound to show up every now and then. It’s so easy to “unknowingly” trample on a guy’s ego. The worst part is that the guy with a hurt ego is bound to feel “resentment” towards you no matter how much he loves you.
It’s easy for misunderstandings to creep into a relationship when the girl says things that a guy is likely to misinterpret. So here are a few examples of things that guys don’t like to hear from their girl.
You should be more like that guy
Comparisons are best avoided especially keeping the “male ego” in mind. Just like girls don’t like to be compared to other girls, guys hate to be compared with other guys. Many girls tend to make this mistake when they are feeling pissed off about something their boyfriend did. The only problem is that the guy is going to remember your “remark” and he is going to hurt bad.
I am too busy to talk
Even if you are really busy, don’t say this to your boyfriend. Even the most “understanding” guy is bound to flinch when his girlfriend says she is too busy to talk. Relationships go bad over small things like this.
You are a bad driver
Most guys are very touchy about their driving skills. Here again, every guy believes that he is a “great” driver. So be very careful about your comments on his driving skills.
I love “so and so” (famous guy)
Guys hate their girlfriend going “puppy eyed” about an actor, or some media star. To swoon over “Brad Pitt” while in the company of your boyfriend is going to make him resent you, especially if he has a possessive nature – which most guys have.
