You would hardly see a relationship that exists without mistakes; mistakes are bound to happen since no one is perfect. However, when some mistakes keep happening repeatedly it becomes annoying; if mistakes that should be easily avoided keep happening it can make one frustrated.
Every man in a relationship should be sensitive enough to know that some mistakes are way too costly and shouldn’t exist in the relationship else they would end up losing so many good women that care about them.
The following mistakes are mistakes most ladies out there would want her man to stop making; they should never exist in the relationship.
1. COMPLACENCYThis is one annoying mistake men make that should never be made. After all the care and attention a man gives to a lady when he’s trying to woo her, the moment he gets her, his approach changes; he begins to take so many things for granted forgetting that the same way he worked hard to get the lady should be the same way he should work hard to keep her; this is a frequent mistake so many men make and ladies are actually tired of being taken for granted.
2. NOT LISTENING TO HIS LADY
Complacency is one thing and not being listened to is another; a relationship exists between two people, no one forms a relationship with just himself. Being in a relationship with a lady means you ought to listen to her inasmuch as she has to listen to you. For understanding to exist in a relationship, both partners should be given a listening ear; so many ladies out there would complain of the fact that they are being sidelined by men and this is yet another mistake men make that women are tired of.
We are not in the 16th century anymore; inasmuch as I strongly believe a man is the head of a family, being over domineering wouldn’t help the relationship at all. No lady wants to be in a relationship that can be compared to a military training and that is exactly what some relationship look like. Most men would want their will and their will alone to stand in a relationship, but such acts only show selfishness and insensitivity on the part of the man.
4. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Inasmuch as this doesn’t exist in every relationship, it is still a regular occurrence in countless relationships out there. So many women are being abused on a regular basis and don’t know how to leave the relationship. Most men would claim it was a mistake and they couldn’t control their anger, but to call a spade a spade, this is one mistake that shouldn’t even be made in the first place.
Dating a man is one thing and dating a man that can be faithful is another. You would hardly see a man that can keep to a promise of being faithful. Most women are tired of moving from one relationship with a cheating man to another relationship with a cheating man; cheating should never exist in a relationship and it’s one stupid mistake women are tired of and would appreciate if men stop making; the recent trend among male celebrities is cheating on their partner and this has led to so many failed celebrity relationships.
6. INCONSISTENCY IN SHOWING CARE
Most men would show care to their lady today and feel it ought to last till the next week. Women have short memories when it comes to this; roses and candy might show her you love her today but tomorrow is also another day to show to that woman that she’s special to you. Men make that mistake of resting on their oars when it comes to showing care to their lady and that’s a very big mistake to make; every day is just another day to show care.
7. PLACING SOMETHING OR SOMEONE ABOVE YOUR LADY
What’s the need being in a relationship where you would be treated like second class material? Most women complain of being in a relationship where their man places so many things above them, including irrelevant things. For a lady to be in a relationship and not be a priority can be heart-breaking and this is another mistake no woman wants her man to make; a woman should always be a priority to her man.
8. FORGETTING HER BIRTHDAY AND OTHER IMPORTANT DATES
You may think that this is unnecessary but not in the world of a woman; every man should know that women are highly emotional and certain things which you may deem as unimportant are actually highly important to her. Anniversaries mark an important moment in the life of a woman and she feels it should matter to her man to; marriage anniversary for example is one thing women don’t take lightly; to a lady, forgetting dates like that means you take important things for granted. This is one grave mistake women would prefer their man don’t make.
Relationship is a serious work; you work to get it started and you work to keep it going strong. Certain mistakes show negligence and women are tired of negligence.
If most men out there can read this piece and take it to heart then putting a smile on the face of your lady would be such an easy task.
In the words of Shawn “the world would be a better place if we had better relationships”.
