So basically it`s awful to have a girlfriend who`s neat, takes care of herself, wants to be comfortable, remembers things about you, and wants to talk to you?
Hmm. Well if all these things are so horrible that they make you unhappy, why are you even dating this female?
By the way - I don`t know about you other I-A-B females, but I know for sure that most of these don`t apply to me. Not ALL, just MOST. I`m willing to admit that sometimes I can get emotional or want to look nice for the person I`m dating... But wow, these are all extremes and just stupid stereotypes.

"StarDagger, why would you be "the" man? Each of these woman has 5 or 6 other men who will tend to her if you will not.

There are 3 billion men on the planet, you do not have to deal with the loser ones!"

I like you! I agree, women should not be with men they do not get along with, I was merely stating that I prefer women who do not do the things in this list. There is certainly a list of things that guys do that women do not like, and they should find men who do not do those things.

Keep on being You!

S*D

Btw, I also do not organize my hubby`s things where he cant find them, and it does not take me eons to get ready to go out somewhere. I do not feel its necessary to put on makeup to go to McDonald`s lol. That being said, I love makeup but go with the less is more approach..it doesnt look as though i`m wearing it, tho i`m always told i dont need any. Most of the things listed in that article describe the prissy shallow airheaded types really. I know a male friend who dates these uber-female types and i can never stand their presence lol, nor would i make friends with one. Their whole lives are credit cards and making cute (creepy) photo collages of themselves and a boyfriend they`ve only been dating a month. You know. the types who call cars "cute".

I can agree with toiletries (i have dozens, i`m sadly addicted to perfume, lotion, and lipgloss lol) but indeed while my hubby complains, he also loves to smell the scents on me ("mm you smell good!") and would prolly be disappointed if i stopped using them and let my appearance go, as Jinxie said. Also shoes.....lol every woman i know loves shoes. We love them. I dont know why. But i DO disagree with the crying all the time (uh no) and only caring about whether something is pink or not instead of its working qualities. I have never once called a car "cute" opr adorable. Some women may fit this list but as some said, men also can do alot of these things and are just as annoying.

I especially hate it when my GF disdains Star Wars and laughs at it. that really aggravates me.

about the martyrdom -- my mom does that:

"You`ve NEVER done the dishes. Why do I have to do it all the time?"
"... I did the dishes three hours ago."
"No, you`ve NEVER done the dishes in your whole life."
**later**
"I`m doing the dishes right now; could you acknowledge that and not tell me that I`ve never done the dishes again?"
"SHUT UP, FFS!"

I admit, as a woman i am guilty of 1,3,4 and 5. The rest is the boyfriend.
Also the whining only happens during the dreaded cycle. Chick flicks however, are about as entertaining to me as watching an atom video.

I think one of the weirdest things women do is go see a sad movie and cry through the whole thing and then buy the DVD so they can cry again later. For men feeling sad is the exact same thing as feeling BAD. We don`t like it and we avoid it as much as possible but women are drawn to pain like moths to a flame.

so when I decided to not get dressed up as usual and not make too much effort before going to the local bar or movies my bf says poo like "your going like that?" or "do you need to put your makeup on?". No i`m not an ugly beast...but some guys get used to and like their gf looking a certain way a.k.a HOT! and when they decide to relax once in awhile we are left open to comments and sideways looks. So its an hour to get ready or shut up and be happy with us in trackies and bare faced all the time!

...I know women who do these things, and I`m glad I`m not one of them. Happy at home with non-gourmet food and I`m always punctual. Haha. Hate phones, but I love pillows. Just on the couches though. So I can throw them on the floor if I want to sit on the floor. Haha. Item relocation is such a bother. I end up so confused when an item isn`t in its original place..

This is sooo outdated. how bout the things girls are doing now. (I do not do these things but my roomates do...crazy)

1. facebook stalk ppl they DONT know,
2. make up nicknames for everyone and everyTHING, yes, even ur little peter over there
3. get drunk and call 500 times just to say I love you and have you tell them you love them (guilty)
4. have no concept of money and take the stance that "he`s the boy, he should pay for everything"

There are many more....there needs to be a new 2010 list!

I didn`t take offense. I find it hilarious.

I will agree with you about how annoying some *people* can be. And I am thankful I don`t have some of the traits other *people* have (not to say I don`t have any bad traits at all).

That`s better.

I`m confused as to why you take offense to that?

If a woman possesses these traits, she is probably spun and drive you nuts.

I assume that you are nothing like this? If so, then you should be agreeing with me about how annoying some women can be.

I feel sorry for some of the crap that women have to go through. I feel sorry about some of the crappy stuff that some men do. I can sympathize. In no way does my admitting this affect my standing as a man. Your admitting faults in some other women, should not affect your standing as a woman.

Be proud that you don`t posses these traits. I`m proud to not posses the stereotypical traits that men have.

At the same time, you can`t get mad at me for pointing out that some women are like this, for it`s true. If you disagree then it`s simply that you are closed minded, or you are actually like the list and are pissed off at being represented this way.

The list simply compiles a list of traits that men hate in some women.

For all intent a purposes, we are talking about women who are self centered and spun. A small percentage of the female race, but a section that is well worth warning men about.

You`re missing the simple fact that this is a list of things women do, that annoy men. That`s why it only talks about women.

Again, if you grab a list of things men do that annoy women, I`m sure you would see some of the same items. That does not, suddenly, make them untrue.

Also, I never said all women hate sports. I just said that it`s a stereotype that they do and so would make the list. I also said that I hate sports (and luckily, my wife does as well). But my individual feelings are not what the list is about.

It`s not a list of things that Pui does that annoys her boyfriend. It`s a list of things that some women do, that have be know to be annoying to some men.

If even one man has known a woman with these traits (And I can tell you that most men have met women with these traits), then it becomes a valid list.

Also, I would NEVER state that all women are like this. I know. I married a woman who isn`t.

That`s the problem. *Some* women do, Not all. Some men do it to. So why does it only accuse girls of these things?

Lol, you just keep coming out with more and more stereotypes. Lots of women LOVE sports. Some women dislike sports, but are not annoyed by them... infact, I don`t think I have ever met a woman who *hated* sports unless she was the attention starved kind. My boyfriend sometimes starts complaining that I am "ignoring" him too long by reading or something.

My point is simple: All these terrible traits go both ways. Both men and women do them. Some women do things that would typically be a male stereotypical thing, and vice versa.

Anyone who trusts stereotypes to help them in the dating world, or in the world in general really, isn`t going to get very far.

I couldn`t agree with you more. Communication is the key to a happy relationship.

I understand the reaction: "I don`t do those things", but the fact is, some women do. I`ve dated a few of them. So, again, this is simply a list of things that some girl friends do, that annoys some men.

If a list was written of things men do that annoy women, I`m sure sports would be on that list, even though I hate sports and I know a few women that love sports, it would be an accurate argument because there are men that watch sports and girl friends that are annoyed by it.

Everything needs a place or it`s just getting in the way or being messy. If there are so many toiletries on the counter that no one can use the sink, then some of them need to move. Same principal goes for anything else. Usually I ask my boyfriend nicely to move something himself, so he can put it away anywhere he likes and organize it whatever way he wants. Ah, communication and compromise. Amazing how that works.

Yes, when a women "puts away" my stuff in a brand new location, it annoys the crap out of me.

How would a woman feel if her husband organized her collection of toiletries an moved them from on the counter, to a shelf under the sink?

Honestly, it`s not the cleaning up, but the fact that it`s done as a passive aggressive way of saying that you don`t like the current location of the item/items.

genericuser:
I don`t see how any of these would make me unmarryable,
----------------------------------------------

Well, these are a list of things that men hate about women. Things women do, non-nonchalantly, that drive us nuts. If you posses several of these traits, your husband will slowly become more and more annoyed over the years. He will try his best to stand by you because he loves you, but the annoyances will eventually overwhelm him. Eventually, leave you for another woman and you will be alone with your pillows, counter full of lotions and organization skills.

It`s ok to posses a few of these traits, but if you have several, I`d recommend on working on it before getting married...

Most of that was true I have to admit in some way. Although, my boyfriend relocates things more often than I do, I rarely over dress, I don`t have a phone and I hate people who are attached to theirs, I rarely cry,I want to watch movies I want to watch once in a while, because sometimes you have to break up the sci-fi adventure routine with something with more plot than CGI,I love staying home, and guys are just as bad with fighting for the same and some other reasons (flat out lieing lol) but yeah, pillows, toiletries... that stuff is true

Guys: as a married man, here`s a bit of advice.

If you have a girlfriend who does more than two of these things, dump her, because she is annoying, unless the sex really makes it worth it to keep her around. When you meet a girl who does NONE of these things, marry her. That`s what I did. Well, OK, she`s late all the time but I can forgive her of that one.
