25 Things Ladies Do That Turns Guys Off But They Probably Don’t Know

Most women actually believe a man should be okay with everything about them and what they bring into a relationship.

What they don’t know is that men have lot’s of reservations but instead of voicing out, they rather bow out.  If you want to keep your man, then note these things.

1. Long Fingernails.

Women will say they dress to impress, but with fake long nails? That’s something most men hate, we love it natural and will be better if you grow your own nails and shape them properly. Keeping it too long doesn’t look nice to us and worse of all, it gets in all the wrong places when we’re making out.

2. Perfume Overdose.

Trying to smell like heaven becomes hell when it is abused. It will be better to tone it down.

3. Being Too Desperate.

That practically scares the hell out of us. Relax let’s move the relationship one step at a time.

4. Being Dumb.

No man will want none of that. It is not always about our opinion, we sometimes want you to argue and make some intelligent submissions.

5. Talking About Your Ex.

Now that is a direct turn off for us. There is no compromise with this.

6. Being Cheap.

Not necessarily about sex but when you don’t know where to draw the line between being overly friendly with guys or walking immediately to any man who calls you. That’s being cheap and it is a big turn-off for most men.

7. Being Like His Mother.

Trying to take charge of everything in his life like you gave birth to him is something no man likes and it is a big turn off. Little advises are welcomed from time to time but when you take it to the next level where you want him to do as you say, get angry and tell him off for something he didn’t do or giving him a list of dos and don’ts.

8. Being In Charge In The House

In his life, you’re his partner, not the president and not the queen, using princess and queen is just literal and doesn’t mean you should act like it and treat him like a slave.


9. Being Rude.

Obviously, you should know.

10. Chameleon Lifestyle.

One minute you’re nice, the next minute you’re angry and you apologize, yet within a twinkle of an eye, you’re at it again. No man likes that.

11. Playing Hard To Get.

By now you should know most men hate this and the reason why you probably lost a couple of good guys. If you like him and he comes forward and you’re single, what stops you from accepting his proposal? Remember, whiles you’re playing the cat and mouse game with him, another woman is ever ready to take up the position.

12. Gossiping.

It is negative for us, outright. There is nothing more embarrassing than having people tag your woman as a gossip who can’t keep her mouth out of other people’s business.

13. Being Late At Everything.

Now that gets on our nerves. We understand a woman takes time to dress and make up, but knowing this, we expect you to start early and finish early, not to wait till it’s almost time to leave then you start taking the whole time in the universe to get ready.

14. Being A Copy Cat.

By this we mean you shouldn’t try to do what your friends do just because you’re with them. Be yourself and stop trying to copy everything they do, it doesn’t make you stand out.

15. Not Offering To Pay.

Now, this is the hottest debate ever but what you should know is that men see women to be cheap when they don’t offer to pay, they see you like some hungry woman who just wants food to eat. It is important to know that, being an independent woman starts when you start paying, that’s what earns you the respect.

Now don’t even go there, you can play along or bounce.

19. Excessive Makeup.

The thing is, we like makeup but when you go overboard, it makes you look like a masquerade and it scares the living hell out of us.

20. Pretending To Be Someone You’re Not.

Being yourself is very important, trying to be someone you’re not will definitely betray you one day and it wouldn’t look good. Why force that accent when you know it’s not natural? Why pretend you’ve lived abroad when you’ve not gone beyond the shores of Ghana? Doesn’t it occur to you that the truth will come out one day?

21. Being Helpless All The Time.

Every man needs a helping hand one way or the other and so when you’re always helpless and he has to babysit you all the time, be ready to lose him.

22. Body Odor.

We don’t even need to let you know this, you should know it is repulsive and nobody needs that.

23. Virtually Designing His Schedule.

When you have to decide everything for him like where he is supposed to be, how he’s supposed to do his thing etc. No man wants that. It feels like a noose around his neck.

24. Mouth Odor.

That’s not something anybody wants. How is he going to kiss you if you have that smell oozing out of your mouth? It prevents him from getting up-close and personal with you.

25. Telling Your Friends Everything That Happens Between You.

That act is very childish and no man wants that. As a matured person, your relationship should be private. If you run to your friends at the least issue, it’ll make your man lose interest very fast.
