1. Not bothering to reply

Seriously, when a girl texts you something important, what makes you think that you look cool by not answering her? You are making her paranoid by failing to be by her side when she needs you. So, stop this habit right away. A man is never too busy; it always comes down to his priorities. You need to figure out an apt way to reply to her as soon as you can. It really isn’t hard. When you love someone, you know how to make time for them.

2. Too into your own thing

Guys, don’t make this mistake. Even when you are with your girlfriend, you spend half the time being too into yourself. She shouldn’t have to fight for your attention. As a boyfriend, it is your job to make her feel special and beautiful. A girl who is ignored by her boyfriend is not going to stick around for too long because she will eventually find someone who will pamper her and love her the way she deserves to be loved. So, before you lose out on a gem of a person just because you are too blind to see your mistakes, learn how to correct it. Give her your time, attention, and love – she will appreciate it.

3. Whining all the time

Do you find yourself whining all the time? Do you blame your girlfriend if you are having a bad day? Are you one of those stereotypical jerks who believe that taking out your wrath on your girlfriend will help solve your problems? If this sounds like you, you might need a break from relationships so you can work through these issues. No one deserves this kind of guy in their life. Life is beautiful, but only if you make it so. Choose to spread the smiles rather than sulk and whine.

4. Reminiscing about your ex

If you are still hooked on your ex, there is no way you can have a happy present relationship. While it isn’t bad to reminisce about your ex from time to time, constantly bringing her up shows that you have not yet closed that old chapter. No girl wants to deal with old baggage, and frankly, they don’t deserve the trouble either. So, it is up to you to understand that this is an annoying habit and is best avoided if you are now dating someone else. Know how to sort through things and live in the moment rather than dwelling on the what-ifs.

5. Emotional abuse

This one is a strict No-No! You need to know that abusing your spouse or partner doesn’t always involve hitting them, it can be emotional too. Not being with them when they need you the most or blaming them for their problems and being inconsistent is a form of emotional abuse. You need to know where to draw the line.

6. Too drunk all the time

Okay, we get it that there are a few problems where only alcohol is the solution. But, you need to know that you can’t be drunk all the time. No girl loves to date a guy who comes over drunk and can barely pay enough attention to her. A relationship demands trust, patience, and time. When you are always drunk, how are you ever going to take the time to invest in your relationship? So, you need to draw a line and respect it.

7. A flirt through and through

Guys, you need to know that flirting isn’t always good. You might do it for fun or just because you like to make your girlfriend a little jealous. Harmless flirting is alright, but being with someone who flirts with nearly every other girl can be annoying and terribly frustrating if you have a girlfriend. Put yourself in your girlfriend’s shoes and wonder how it would feel if she would flirt back with every guy who dropped her a ‘hi’. Hurt much? Exactly, you have been doing the exact same thing. So, turn the tables and stop flirting when you already have a beautiful partner right beside you.

8. Breaking promises

This one could very well be a deal breaker. You need to know that there is no fun in breaking promises. The fact that you are in a relationship with someone means that you should respect the promises you made to each other, and you should avoid breaking them. When you break a promise made to someone you love, you are breaking the bond of love and trust that ties the two of you together. The results are never good. Choose your promises carefully and then stand by your words. This is the key to a long and happy relationship.

9. Losing your cool

Do you tend to lose your cool quite often? This one is again best avoided. You should avoid losing your cool, especially with your girlfriend. She is not meant to be your punching bag. If you are in need of anger management lessons, seek them. In the end, being someone with a balanced temper is going to fetch you a lot more benefits. So, you should try and understand the need to stay composed. Does being angry ever solve a problem? It simply creates a ruckus, which becomes harder to handle.

10. Complaining about who they are

Do you complain to your girlfriend about who she is?

You’re too fat. You are too rude. You demand too much attention. You make me sad. Damn man this is a bit too much.

We have all heard these excuses and it says a lot more about you as a boyfriend than your girlfriend. She didn’t beg you to date her. You chose her and now that you are dating her, don’t complain about her being not what you thought her to be. She isn’t a thing. A person isn’t perfect, but love makes you fall for the imperfections. Remember that.

11. Not answering calls

Turning your phone off or not taking her calls doesn’t make you macho. It simply makes you more of a jerk and an annoying one at that. You never know how urgent the call may be and what she has to say. Unless you are really stuck in something, always take her call. Avoiding someone’s calls can make them feel unwanted and this will definitely have a bad impact on a relationship. If she is calling you, it is likely that she is missing you. So, talk to her.

12. Being indifferent

We have seen so many guys who are just indifferent toward their girlfriends. You don’t bother calling her, you don’t bother going on dates, no surprises, no beautiful messages. Do you still expect her to stick around? Stop being an annoying boyfriend and show her that you love her and make her feel that she matters. It isn’t that hard as long as your love is true.

13. Falling out of love

Guys who quickly fall in and out of love aren’t the best examples of a good boyfriend. It is important to know that love is more than just a temporary feeling for someone. If you fall in love with someone, make the person the reason for your smile. Don’t fall out of love like it is a phase. Respect the feelings that grow.

14. Melodramatic tendencies

Guys, don’t play the melodrama card all the time. If you think being melodramatic and cornering her with your words is diplomatic of you, it is probably not the best way to interact with your girlfriend. She can see through your pretenses and she probably finds it really annoying. So, try to make beautiful memories rather than cry and whine and strike a melodramatic mood.

Girls, don’t you agree with my pointers here about your annoying boyfriend? Budding boyfriends, now you know what not to do, right?

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
