Men are pretty infamous for putting their foot in their mouths. I can’t tell you how many women have complained to me that their man said something silly or offensive or insensitive and the poor guy has NO idea what he did wrong.
Well the truth is, woman make these same mistakes.
And men are just as aggravated by it! Here are three things you should never say to a man, especially if you’d like to see him again:
- You remind me of a man I dated (or ex)– No one wants to be compared to someone else, especially someone you had a relationship with. Men won’t forget a comparison, and instead of enjoying their time with you, they’ll wonder if you’re keeping score the whole time. Men don’t want to have to work too hard for anything, so if they even think they are in some kind of competition, they will not take it as a fun challenge but rather an annoying position to be in. Sports are the only time a man is interested in being competitive. When you compare to someone who didn’t stay in your life, you are essentially saying “You remind me of someone I don’t want to date.” Would you want to hear that?
- My ex was such a jerk! – Even if they were really bad don’t go there. You’ll have him thinking you blame others for everything and you don’t take responsibility for your own life. Or worse, he may draw the conclusion that you are bitter or that you ‘re still talking about him because you’re not over him!
- This one guy I slept with… – This could easily come up, especially if you are moving to get intimate but the past is over and men don’t want to know about your past lovers. It’s a huge turnoff. They will wonder if they are measuring up. And even if you’re saying something negative about a past encounter, they will wonder if you’re being critical of them too! It’s best to keep the focus on the man in front of you… or on top of you. 😉
