NEW DELHI: Not to generalize, but every gender has some traits that the other one dislikes and though pop culture and society often term women as complex creatures, sometimes it can be difficult to understand what men don't like too. So, here are some of the things that even though the man in your life might not tell you but he's not particularly fond of. Check out.
Trying to change them
Most men follow this rule in their minds, if it's not broken, don't fix it, hence if you have committed to loving him forever and accepted him then there is nothing that can be gained out of trying to change things about them. Be it his dressing sense, music taste or his friend circle, all these things are what he has been comfortable with throughout his life and trying to bring a change in that would be like trying to create chaos in his paradise.
Long phone conversations
Long talks over phone calls are fun when one is in the initial or as they say the honeymoon phase of their relationship. However, often some women don't realise the end of that phase and that there's no use to carry on talking on the call for hours. Ideally, any normal conversation between two people, even if they are in love, should only last for 5-10 mins unless there's actually something important to talk about. Though men might not say but it's a fact that they certainly don't like hour-long phone conversations.
Struggle for power
Unless a man is trying to compete, power struggles are often a big turn-off for most men because a woman earning more, being better looking or more educated is not what's really a subject of intimidation. More times than people would admit the reason for a troublesome relationship or breakup is the power-struggle dynamic among the couple.
Emotions are a way to express what one is feeling inside and help the other person understand that. So it becomes a major turn off for men when these emotions are used as tools to manipulate their feelings. Also, men are known to be not good at interpreting signals which does not mean they can't communicate. An honest way to go about caring for someone you love is by being forthright about the things you need.
After constantly receiving mixed signals, at times, most men are left flabbergasted. It confuses men when women act coy, rather than being all romantic and cute. It's not to say that men can't handle complexity but when it's in regards to asking a woman out, for them, it drains downs to either yes or no. So, even a subtle hint would go a long way for those women who want a guy to approach them because pretending not to care while also wanting him will only chase him away.
