I absolutely LOVE the Thought Catalog. Its like a writer’s convention online!
Check out this post I found in which 19 guys share their inner feelings about relationships. Something that doesn’t happen often. Ladies take notes!
“Telling me that so many guys are chasing her or want to go out with her, that just makes me uninterested as it makes me feel inadequate because no one is chasing me.”
“If getting drunk and high is their only personality”
“Social media obsessed. Cant you just stop taking fucking selfies and stop updating your page for one outing. Instant mood killer.”
“People who pretend they don’t care about things to sound laid-back or cool.
“Besides smoking. If she can’t seem to remember anything I tell her, I take it as lack of interest.”
“What is it called in english when someone follows too much that thing about taurus, pisces and those others? yes, that.”
“Smoking. A woman can tick all the boxes I can think of, but if she turns out to be a smoker, I’m out.”
“Duck face photos online. Instant nope. ‘I’m a gifted photographer.’ Yep, So is every other girl I’ve seen with a camera.”
“Unfortunately I’ve discovered as soon as I hear “God/Jesus/Cthulhu comes first!” I have almost no interest whatsoever. I’ve tried to be more open minded about it but I just can’t.”
“I don’t know whether this would fall under ignorance or lack of culture, but I became suddenly disinterested in a girl a couple weeks ago when she said on the first date, ‘I don’t read.’ We were talking about our vehicles, and I mentioned how I drive a real clunker of a car named ‘Rocinante’ after the unreliable, overburdened horse in Don Quixote. She had no idea what I was talking about. Upon further inquiry, it came to light that she simply does not read anything. No books, no news, no research, no magazines — nothing. I read almost anything I can get my hand on, and I couldn’t help but lose nearly all attraction for her when she said that.”
“Posting photos on social media showing how cool they are because they’re always getting drunk. I don’t mind drinking, but I find it really immature when people do that.”
“Constantly apologizing for things, not because they did anything wrong, but because they are extremely insecure.”
13. Drama queens
“Drama. STDs. Mental illness. Presenting as weak or as a dependent.”
“When she shames you for being sexually attracted to her and wanting to be intimate with her(have sexual urges for her) or when she says “All you want me for is sex”. I don’t deal with that type of manipulation, and when it happens the love is gone.”
16. Sloppy drunks
“When she can’t handle her alcohol. My ex never knew when to stop drinking. She’d start acting like an 8 year old, would throw food at people, and would drool all over herself. And of course the night would end with her crying all night for 1-2 hours. Amazingly effective at turning me off. There’s a reason she’s my ex…”
“Finding out she doesn’t like kids. Was into this girl until I found that out, and instantly lost any feelings for her. (Well, mostly. She still has amazing cleavage, and I’m only human).”
“Anti-vaccine people. Happened to the last girl I dated.”
“Well as a vegan..”
