Ok females, listen the hell up.

10 Things You Should Never Say to Your Boyfriend

1) "My ex did the exact same thing!"

Whether it's a desirable resemblance (they both always hold the door open) or a less desirable one (neither one showers often enough), your boyfriend never wants to hear that he's anything like your ex. Ever.

You don’t want him to feel like you're always comparing the two of them, do you? Think about it: Do you really want him to imagine that he does other things just like your ex? Doubtful. Plus, he might think you're still hung up on your former flame.

Either way, a comment like this won’t do much for his self-esteem. So the next time you experience boyfriend deja-vu, keep it to yourself. [/QUOTE]

If you are going to compare me to your former...go back to your former. That way, you will compare him to me, and it will be a vicious cycle until you kill yourself.

2) "Helen's pregnant ... Shhhh" Remember on Sex and the City when Carrie tells Aidan that Miranda's pregnant but that he can't tell Steve? Remember how upset Aidan was to hear the incriminating news? Your boyfriend doesn't want to hear information that could get him into trouble. And even if he does want to hear it, he really shouldn't.

Don't burden him with someone else’s secret. And besides, if he does spill the beans, your friend is going to be mad at you, not him.

Along the same lines, he doesn't want to hear about your friend’s yeast infections, her irregular periods or her IBS. It's bad enough he has to hear about yours. [/QUOTE] I dont give a shit about your drama.

3) "When we're married/have kids..." It's natural to fantasize about wedded bliss and the three kids you and your beau will one day spawn — you’re only human. And sometimes you might even entertain this fantasy very early on in a relationship. But unless you want to scare him away permanently, keep thoughts like these in your head where they belong.

Even if he himself has thought about your happily-ever-after future, he probably doesn't want to hear it described out loud just yet. Wait until you're sure you're on the same page regarding marriage, kids, and the future of your relationship before you start prophesizing. A gut feeling probably isn’t good enough. [/QUOTE] Im married and I STILL dont want to hear about having kids.

4) "Do You Think She's Pretty?" When you ask a question like this, your boyfriend knows he can’t win.

If he says “yes,” you’ll probably get jealous and upset. You might even follow up with “Is she prettier than me?” Talk about a loaded question!

Of course, if he says “no” (and she clearly is pretty), you’ll accuse him of being a liar. You’ll wonder what else he’s lying about, even as you assure him you don’t mind if he says “yes.” Pfff…as if you’re that insecure!

Has he managed to convince you that he genuinely doesn’t find her attractive at all? You’ll wonder what his bad taste says about you.

See? [/QUOTE] You will never win with this one. Best course of action is to change the subject. kill yourself. Changing the subject could be assumed as "yes she is prettier".

5) "I'm fine" or "Never mind" Your face says it all. So does the fact that you haven't said a word in the past hour. And the way you snapped over the misplaced remote control isn't hiding anything either. But when he asks if you’re okay, you say you're fine. At this point, your boyfriend wants to tear his hair out.

Passive-aggressive behavior doesn't help anyone. First, you miss an opportunity to actually address what’s bothering you. You also bottle up your frustrations and create new problems. By the time you actually try to tackle what’s really bothering you, you’re both too upset about too many things to have a constructive discussion. [/QUOTE] Oh god this pisses me off. If nothing is wrong, stop acting like it. If something is wrong, and I have the god damn common courtesy to muster the breath to ask you "whats wrong", it would be nice of you to tell me. And if you say nothing, then I stop being curious and say "well stop acting stupid then". Obviously nothing is wrong, right? So you are acting moody because you are stupid.

[QUOTE=] 6) "I just let one go" In a man's mind, women only use the bathroom to re-apply their lipstick (or, at the very worst, pee). They know they're kidding themselves, but they really don't want any physical, verbal, or olfactory indication of the contrary.

Announcing your bodily function means he can no longer blame the dog. Suddenly, you're one of the guys, and not in a sexy, "I watch football and drink beer but I'm still a girlie-girl" kind of way.

Sure, he'll get over it. He may even laugh about it from time to time. But he'd still prefer that it never happened. So depending on how squeamish your guy is, you might want to wait till you're married to be disgusting.

Females dont poop. Scientific fact.

But if you do, dont forget to flush it, because if I come in there and see a really big turd, you cant use the excuse "it wont fit" when we are having drunk sex.

[QUOTE=] 7) “I’ll try anything once!” Because unless you really, really, really mean it, don’t get his hopes up.

Test me. If you say that, I am thinking of the most absurd, randomly fucked up sex act and I will videotape you as you do it.

My wife said that when we first started dating. She retracted it a few days after.

[QUOTE=] 8) “Are you sure you're okay?" (Repeatedly. Even after he’s told you he really is okay.)

Sometimes we’re thrown off guard when our guy is uncharacteristically quiet. We’ll prod and probe, hoping to get to the bottom of their issue (and too often, we're absolutely sure it’s something we’ve done). When in reality, there may not be a concrete reason at all.

Men have bad days too — they can be moody, tired, or just generally not feel like talking. They’re only human! As hard as it can be, don’t read into it too much. Give him his space and keep yourself busy until he snaps out of it.

Ask him what’s bothering him over and over again and the only honest answer will be “You.”

If there was a problem I would tell you when you asked. In accordance with Thing # 5.

[QUOTE=] 9) “I hate my thighs” If he didn’t find you attractive, he wouldn’t be with you in the first place. Period, end of story.

Putting yourself down in front of him makes you look insecure, and just in case you didn’t know, men really hate that (see #6). Just like women, they’re usually attracted to self-confidence and put off by its opposite.

Think about it. Would you want to be with a man who constantly talked about how much he hated his calves or how he felt like a failure in his career? Uh, no way.

In addition, you’ll draw attention to flaws that he probably never even noticed before. No one else looks as closely at your body as you do. In all likelihood, you are your own worst critic. Don’t recruit him.

This.

If I didnt think you were attractive, I would have left you for that fine girl you asked me about earlier.

[QUOTE=] 10) "I hate your mom" Likewise for his friends, his siblings, his dad … even his dog.

If he really loves someone or something, don’t hate on ‘em. You may not get along perfectly with everyone in his life, but try your hardest to be diplomatic in your relationships with people he really cares about. Be open-minded about what he sees in them (things that may not be immediately obvious to you).

Maybe Deadbeat Dave is his oldest friend — the person he survived middle school with; the only person who stood by him when he lost his job a couple years back. Maybe despite his lack of attention to hygiene, he’s got a heart of gold.

If you love your man, you’ll trust his judgment.

And whatever you do, don’t ever make him pick a side. If it’s between you and his mom, you’ll lose every time.

This is true. Unless it comes to sex, then my wife comes first.

And, of course, I will add my own additions...

(11) "Please turn down the volume" If he is playing a video game, and the volume is loud, its for a reason. It could be to better hear an oncomming enemy. It could be because he dont want to listen to you. It could be just to better immerse himself in the game to make it easier to not listen to you. Whatever the reason, the volume is high, and it will not come down until he makes the executive decision.

(12) "How does this nail polish / make up / hair / shoes look?" Unless he is a closet homosexual, or unless you are trying on something from Victoria's Secret / Fredricks of Hollywood, he does not give two shits / a rats ass / a flying fuck about your clothes, shoes, hair style, make up, or nail polish, any more than you care about what video game he is playing.

(13) "I think I am late on my period" Oh hell no. You better slit your wrists and shove them up your vagina to make blood come out.

(14) "I'll be ready in " Bull fucking shit. If he gave you 12 hour notice to just go to the corner store, you still wouldnt be ready on time.

(15) "Do you really need another video game / hard drive / video card / ? Yes. He does. Because unlike females, who buy 50 pairs of shoes and use 2 of them while the other 48 just take up space in a closet / under a bed, guys actually use everything we buy. So much so, that we need new stuff because we used up the old stuff.

***True story, Im looking to buy a terabyte hard drive. My wife is pissed because she says "you have 2 other hard drives already". What she cant seem to understand is those are FULL. Used for backing up stuff, now they are full. She feels that in the spirit of fairness, she should be allowed to buy another pair of shoes. I tried to shut her up by using this analogy: If you have 2 full cups of water, but you have more water you need to hold, you get a third cup. In her case tho, she has 2 empty cups, and she wants a 3rd cup. She refused to acknowledge the awesomeness of this analogy and continued to bitch about me getting another hard drive***

And, finally...

(16) "Lets go shopping" I would rather drink snake venom.

Great list, And ladies. Violation of any of these rules is very serious. If you value your relationship then you'll blow him and pray that he doesn't leave you.

Everyone knows that women, while they don't like the sport, follow football (american football, not that sissy soccer crap the rest of you pansy world likes) minutes not normal minutes.

To be honest while I agree with most of the things said, and they got both ways, this is one I don't agree with.

Wanna have ear wrenching loudness? Sure do it, but have headphones for it. And the same way, when I will want the same volume, I'll do the same.

Yes, American Rugby. Why did we name it Football when it obviously barely requires the use of the foot other than to kick it occasionally and to run? We should have called soccer football. We have to be different, I guess.

Either way, a comment like this won’t do much for his self-esteem. So the next time you experience boyfriend deja-vu, keep it to yourself. [/QUOTE]True, although I guess any person wouldn't be too keen to know the simularities between this person and a lover's ex.

2) "Helen's pregnant ... Shhhh" Remember on Sex and the City when Carrie tells Aidan that Miranda's pregnant but that he can't tell Steve? Remember how upset Aidan was to hear the incriminating news?

[/QUOTE] What if you point out early in the relationship that you probably don't want kids? Either way.. planning your whole life (kids) is a nono.

4) "Do You Think She's Pretty?" When you ask a question like this, your boyfriend knows he can’t win.

If he says “yes,” you’ll probably get jealous and upset. You might even follow up with “Is she prettier than me?” Talk about a loaded question!

5) "I'm fine" or "Never mind" Your face says it all. So does the fact that you haven't said a word in the past hour.

[/QUOTE]Simply answer truthfully and speak your mind right then and there, or if your too emotional, say you wish to discuss it later "Yes, but lets talk about this later" or a simple "Not now, bugger off"

6) "I just let one go" In a man's mind, women only use the bathroom to re-apply their lipstick (or, at the very worst, pee). They know they're kidding themselves, but they really don't want any physical, verbal, or olfactory indication of the contrary.

Meh.

[QUOTE=] 7) “I’ll try anything once!” Because unless you really, really, really mean it, don’t get his hopes up.

Lol... agreed.

[QUOTE=] 8) “Are you sure you're okay?" (Repeatedly. Even after he’s told you he really is okay.)

Ask him what’s bothering him over and over again and the only honest answer will be “You.”

As with point 5. Either he should speka his mind or say that he wishes to discuss this at a later time. Regardless, there is no reason to ask again and again and again. Unless you want to piss him off. (even more)

[QUOTE=] 9) “I hate my thighs” If he didn’t find you attractive, he wouldn’t be with you in the first place. Period, end of story.

Putting yourself down in front of him makes you look insecure, and just in case you didn’t know, men really hate that (see #6). Just like women, they’re usually attracted to self-confidence and put off by its opposite.

Ugh, drama. If you were ugly I'd tell you or started to look unattractive, I'd tell you. Or I wouldn't if it didn't bother me (say , old age).

[QUOTE=] 10) "I hate your mom" Likewise for his friends, his siblings, his dad … even his dog.

If he really loves someone or something, don’t hate on ‘em. You may not get along perfectly with everyone in his life, but try your hardest to be diplomatic in your relationships with people he really cares about.

If you love your man, you’ll trust his judgment.

And whatever you do, don’t ever make him pick a side. If it’s between you and his mom, you’ll lose every time.

Simply accept each others personal needs, relations (friends and family) and such. She may think some of his mates are "wrong" and he probably doesn't like all of her friends/family/whatever.

How would she react if he said "Darling, your best friend? I think she's a cunt and you shouldn'thang out with her anymore...".

[QUOTE=NiteStryker;5214273]OThis is true. Unless it comes to sex, then my wife comes first.

I could get this the wrong way you know... =p

(11) "Please turn down the volume" If he is playing a video game, and the volume is loud, its for a reason. It could be to better hear an oncomming enemy. It could be because he dont want to listen to you. It could be just to better immerse himself in the game to make it easier to not listen to you. Whatever the reason, the volume is high, and it will not come down until he makes the executive decision.

Disagreed, tolarance is the ley. Accept some loud or annoying music and such. If it gets frustrating, get the volume turned down. I don't wish to hear some sobbing drama song/film at max volume. If it's a bit loud, fine. It would be better with the volume down but she has to put up with some level of annoying sounds from me/him too...

(12) "How does this nail polish / make up / hair / shoes look?" Unless he is a closet homosexual, or unless you are trying on something from Victoria's Secret / Fredricks of Hollywood, he does not give two shits / a rats ass / a flying fuck about your clothes, shoes, hair style, make up, or nail polish, any more than you care about what video game he is playing.

See beauty point earlier. Don't care, if you look horrible we wouldn't have dated you in the first place...

Incase she persists, perhaps ask her if the sound of the car or other machinery sounds good enough, which set of tools is more practical and so on. =p

(13) "I think I am late on my period" Oh hell no. You better slit your wrists and shove them up your vagina to make blood come out.

Ugh, we don't need to know unless you wish to hear about smegma...

(14) "I'll be ready in " Bull fucking shit. If he gave you 12 hour notice to just go to the corner store, you still wouldnt be ready on time.

Probably.

(15) "Do you really need another video game / hard drive / video card / ? Yes. He does. Because unlike females, who buy 50 pairs of shoes and use 2 of them while the other 48 just take up space in a closet / under a bed, guys actually use everything we buy. So much so, that we need new stuff because we used up the old stuff.

Lol, the answer to that is "yes". Firstly because men generally buy practical items so they aren't likely to buy stuff that they don't really need. And besides, he probably stopped asking this question regarding her shopping (shoes, clothing and such) aswell. If his shopping acts bother her... see if you can agree that neither will buy new hardware or other items...

(16) "Lets go shopping" I would rather drink snake venom.

Nono, tell her "deal, but I'l take the lead this time" and go looking for computer hardware, auto hardware and such. Walking between various stories and products that to her may look all the same.. spending time to make detailed inquiries about the specifications, quality, pricing and so on. Only to buy 1-2 products at the end of the day. ;)

Even better....say every thought out loud about what you are looking at, and then explain to her processor speeds and sizes and whatnot.
