5 Things That Drive Men Away

5 Things That Drive Men Away

Every man has different taste when it comes to what they find attractive in a woman. One man may prefer tall girls while another prefers short. We also have men who don’t mind lots of makeup, while others simply enjoy natural beauty. But there’s a consensus when it comes to certain things men cannot stand about the opposite sex.

So ladies, if you find yourself doing some of these things, just remember that your guy may not appreciate them, depending on his personality.  It is time to discover the nice things that men appreciate and remember the things that will drive him away! 


1.Being too clingy or insecure

Desperation can be a little annoying. Even though your guy enjoys attention, being clingy can be a turn-off. There’s a thin line between showing eagerness for your new boyfriend and suffocating him.

If you display neediness towards a man, he may be repelled by it because it indicates that you are insecure in your relationship and, possibly, in yourself. It’s normal for you to feel some insecurity when you start dating, such as being anxious when your man isn’t around.

But, when you start asking probing questions concerning your man’s daily activities and whereabouts, it raises a red flag. The best thing you can do is to allow the relationship to unfold naturally instead of rushing things.


2. Losing your Individuality

Being trendy is one thing, but you shouldn’t follow every trend that hits the scene. For instance, men don’t like it when they walk into a room, club or party and see the same type of woman everywhere. I’m talking about almost every woman having the same look and style.

Being faceless or identical in appearance with almost every other woman shows a lack of individuality. Being true to yourself is an important virtue.

Also, don’t lose yourself in a relationship; women tend to sacrifice their individuality to endear themselves to their men. If you want to succeed in the dating world, remember that guys are attracted to individuality.


3. Being overly dominate or nagging

Men tend to dislike a woman who just doesn’t know when to stop. A woman who constantly dominates the conversation and doesn’t let anybody else speak up will drive a man up the wall.

What women should realize is that nagging doesn’t work. It might bring short-term results, but it does more harm than good in a relationship. When you’re always complaining and being critical, it creates more annoyance and division in your relationship.

When a man responds and reacts to your nagging, he’s only trying to get you to stop. Don’t be surprised to find your man reluctant to come home early because he wants to avoid dealing with the nagging.


4. Trying to be too independent just to prove a point

Being an independent woman is good. But at what point do you stop being a boss lady? Men can have the same problem. Independence is a desirable quality, but it can lead to a person seeming domineering over his or her partner if it’s a constant struggle.

Sometimes, it’s best to give a little and let the other person in the relationship be the boss. It all depends on your personality, but always being the boss can lead to animosity in a relationship from the other person.


6.Trying to please him all the time

You’ve probably seen this type of woman when you’re in the pub watching a game of soccer with your boys. She’s there being rowdy, drinking the men under the table, and even sharing dirty jokes.

She wants to feel like one of the boys. Men will not always accept you into their boys’ club just because you want to act like them.

They may just see you as an outsider. Men may not like it when you act manly, and so you should ensure that you are being yourself when you act like this.


Final Word

Now you know the 5 biggest confessions concerning things that guys might dislike in girls. Sometimes, you may know what annoys people and still do it. It’s hard to maintain a relationship, but you can make it easy on yourself by not doing things that men don’t like.
