How about the same rehashed, trite article you might find at yourtango.com written by someone who has on several occasions personally been freaked out by one or more of these things. It's all well and good having a woman telling other women how to avoid scaring men off but I think a man's perspective is golden. So here are 9 things I know for sure scare the sh@t out of most men.
1)Talking about having or naming babies.
|If it wasn't for that stupid blog, we'd all have names by now!|
2)Talking about Marriage and the future too often.
|Slow down, we just met!|
3) "Ladies Night."
When the specific words "LADIES NIGHT" are mentioned it has an ominous ring to it. In a man's mind, it means there is an issue in your relationship and the case is being submitted to a jury of her peers. Any of her friends that don't like you will now have the chance it plant an incendiary device with your name on it in her head. Ladies Nights can be especially ominous if a girl doesn't do them often, then after some kind of recent conflict or slump she suddenly goes on one. Ladies Nights can often be the precursor to impending doom so avoiding the specific phrase "Ladies Night" is a good idea. Otherwise there is nothing wrong ladies with chilling with their lady friend. In fact it should be encouraged. They are willing to discuss so many things I really don't care to talk about.
4) The phrase "We need to talk"
|We need to talk, meet me in interrogation room 6|
5) Saying "I love you" prematurely or all the time.
You shouldn't be in love with anybody after two weeks and you definitely shouldn't be in love with someone after 2 hours. If you think you are, feel free to keep it to yourself. To a guy, really strong feelings early on are signs that you might be the insane, overly passionate type. The type that might drug him and tie the both of you to train tracks in front of a speeding train just so that the two of you can be together forever. A guy is also afraid you will say, "I love you" around his boys because he is obligated to answer. The outcome will be a thunderstorm of ridicule from his boys once the girl leaves. Girls might say, if he loves you he shouldn't care but why make him go through such a thing? A guy also shouldn't have to tell you he loves you 10000 times a day in 47 different languages. It will become mindless repetition and a form of torture I'd wish upon no man. If he say he loves you once in a while and acts like it all the time that should be enough.
6) Excessive phone calls or texting.
|Maybe if I call him again he'll respond. 1000 is a round number!|
7) Profound, hormonally induced mood swings.
It's a simple matter of men failing to understand the mechanisms or reasons behind such things. Men can cope with a slow but consistent assent into a different mood. In fact, they can have the chance to stop whatever it is that they are doing before it gets to the point of no return. Mood swings are abrupt and insurmountable, more like being on a flat road and smacking straight into a mountain that appeared instantaneous with no warning. To go from happy and cheerful to livid and homicidal in space of five minutes is very scary. Those are the kinds of situations that result in her punching you in the throat, hitting you over the head with frying pan or "accidentally" lighting you on fire.
8) Having to talk about Ex's.
|Get over him! And I mean, "GET over him" not "RUN over him"|
9) A woman with no female friends.
It scares a man when there is an unrealistic burden placed on him. If a man has to be everything to a woman i.e her boyfriend, her girlfriend, her husband, her best friend, her activity partner, her confidant and her entertainment, he is destined to fail because no one person is that interesting or capable of being everything someone else needs. The reason we have many different friends in life is because everyone has something different and uniquely interesting to offer mankind. It is also the case that every man wants to be considered as an independent entity and not some appendage growing out of his significant other. Sad when a man stop being referred to as "he" and mutates into the collective reference "they."
