Ten Things a Girl Should Never Say to a Guy

Guys can be pretty sensitive in certain areas, particularly any subject that could hint at him being anything less of a man. If you want your relationship to last and be healthy and happy, make sure you are aware of the ten things a girl should never say to a guy.

10 things a girl should never say to a guy

  1. “We need to talk.” This phrase causes immediate panic in any guy and will immediately put him on the defensive and make him clam up. If you are in a loving relationship you should be talking anyway and should not need to announce that you need to talk. If there is something serious that you wish to discuss, try and bring it into the conversation naturally, you are more likely to get a more open chat with him.


  1. “Man up.” Never, ever suggest to your guy that he is not a man, especially not in front of anyone else. This phrase is totally emasculating and should never be used if you want your relationship to continue. Your guy will feel completely humiliated, will find it hard to forgive and forget and may well start looking for ways to counter-attack and humiliate you. If you feel that he is not meeting your expectations, try and find ways to let him know in a sensitive manner without insulting him.


  1. “My ex could do it, why can’t you?” Comparing your guy with your ex is likely to be the kiss of death to your relationship. No man likes to be compared to another guy, particularly one that you have been very close to in the past. So bite your tongue and accept your guy for who he is and not for who he isn’t.


  1. “Your mate is very good looking.” This comment could make your guy feel very insecure as he may think that you fancy his friend more than you do him. Never flirt with his mates and keep your relationship with them on a purely friendly basis. If you want to say something, compliment your guy on having really good friends, he will be flattered that you approve of his choice of mates.


  1. “Never mind… I’ll do it myself.” Guys like to know that they are needed and usually love to do little things for you. Don’t deny him this, it is a masculine instinct to protect his woman. If you won’t let him help you with anything he will subconsciously assume that you don’t think he is capable of doing anything important.


  1. “Do I look fat in this?” This is a question that every guy dreads being asked. There is only ever one acceptable answer, so if he pauses before answering or says the wrong thing, it is likely that you will then be upset or feel insecure and uncomfortable. So the best thing is, just don’t ask the question and trust that his answer would have been the right one if you had asked it.


  1. “I can’t live without you.” Steer clear of this phrase particularly early on in a relationship, it will make you seem needy and clingy. If he is not ready to commit, you may well scare him off.


  1. “Notice anything different?” This is another phrase most men dread. They immediately go into panic mode in case they’ve not noticed your new hairstyle, new outfit or other change in your appearance. Accept that men don’t always notice changes and don’t put him through the agony.


  1. 9. “You’re so immature.” Sometimes we all act childishly, but being told so will make him feel as though he is being told off by his mum. He will immediately feel foolish and will be annoyed at you for making him feel this way.


  1. “Nothings wrong.” Don’t insult your guys intelligence by giving him the silent treatment. When something is not right with you, he will notice and want to help put things right. There is nothing more irritating than denying that there is anything wrong when there clearly is. Talk to him, it is better to get things out in the open than to keep things festering inside.


Always remember that men and women are different in how they see things. Your guy needs to feel like a man and want to protect you, but at the same time has many insecurities and need his own ego boosting. So make sure that you are aware of the ten things a girl should never say to a guy and your relationship should last forever.
