Ten things that women do which most annoy men, from an online survey
1: Use sex as a weapon...some women do it and hold their gagging partner to ransom, if her demands aren't met or if he upsets her in any way, there'll be no fun tonight.
2: Talk incessantly...men can say what is required using few words, whereas a woman may divulge every tiny detail of her thoughts, often not only going all around the houses to make her point but frequently making detours to topics which bear no relation whatsoever to the conversation.
3: Shop til they drop...most girls love a good shopping spree, flashing the cash and credit cards all over the place and taking absolute aeons deciding what to buy while the time passes at a snails pace for the poor male in attendance.
4: Become too emotional...with the first sight of a few tears or sobs, the man becomes panic stricken, powerless to help and without a clue how to calm his female, he prefers logical problems that he can work out and solve.
5: Invade our personal space...i really don't understand the gripe with this one, i know we all need our own little space in life but having your woman around, even when she bothers you, is far nicer than sitting around on your own.
6: Speak in code...from asking what he is thinking to ensnaring him with theoretical questions, a woman can make her man ill-at-ease with her probing and delving, never saying what she really means.
7: Become needy...i think this springs from the conflicting female proclamations of asserting their independance and simultaneously demanding a protector, comforter and soul-mate, not to mention that scariest of words, commitment.
8: Act jealous...some women need constant reassurance that they're the only attractive female in existence and that your eyes could never, ever stray even for a moment. Any minor attention bestowed upon another woman can lead to the declaration of World War III.
9: Criticize other women...low self-esteem in women often comes from bitchy remarks or sly comments originating from other females, who all seem to say too fat, too thin, too tarty, too snobby, too this and too that.
10: Pretend to be virtuous...we all have a past and we've all fooled around, so why does she pretend she's only had 2 boyfriends in her life when really it's more like 22? It shouldn't matter and if pretending to be almost saintly impresses a man then she should be chatting-up the Pope.
