Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with wanting to show your man you care. But how much is too much when it comes to nurturing and loving your man (especially before youâ€™re married?) Here are eight things that you should *never* do for a man you love:
1. Nurturing his boo-boos. Did he scrape his knee? Or cut his finger? Itâ€™s one thing to empathize with him but when it comes to you cleaning his cut, putting antibiotic cream on it and placing the Band-Aid on his sore, you’ve gone too far. As someone whoâ€™s done it before, I wouldn’t recommend it. Emotional boo-boos? A different thing all-together, as are legitimate trips to the hospital. Those, you should step up for.
2. His man-scaping. Itâ€™s one thing to take a shower together but itâ€™s another to personally help him with his grooming by shaving his man-parts. This is absolutely off-limits and is something that he should be doing for himself. Also: gross.
3. Cutting his toe-nails. They make nail salons for a reason. Thereâ€™s no reason you should be cutting a grown manâ€™s toenails.
5. Pay his bills. You should never be paying your significant othersâ€™ bills with your hard-earned money. Period.
6. Pay for too many dates. I usually offer to pay by date three or four (that’s just polite) but when a guy is asking you to come out of your pocket on a consistent basis when you *know* he has no issue paying for dates with other women, there’s a major issue. If he can afford all of these other things, he can certainly afford to foot the bill from time to time.
7. Schedule his appointments. Youâ€™re neither his wife nor his secretary so no, you arenâ€™t calling his doctor to schedule an appointment unless itâ€™s for the two of you.
8. Clean his house. In addition to not being his mother, caretaker, nail technician or secretary, here’s another surprising fact: youâ€™re also not is his housekeeper! Thatâ€™s right, if you two live together, itâ€™s perfectly fine to take up your end of the housework. But if you find youâ€™re doing most of the work inside and he isn’t even servicing the outside of the house as needed, then it’s time for a chit-chat. But consistently cleaning up behind a man is something you should never do â€“ especially if youâ€™re not married.
