It doesnâ€™t matter how much of a gentleman he has been up until that point: if a man youâ€™re getting to know at a bar, on a date, or online says any of these lines,run â€”Â before he breaks your heart, or gives you the overwhelming urge to slap him.
I could never date a woman who earns more than I do
So essentially, this manâ€™s sense of self-worth, his sense of having an equal hand in a relationship, his sense of being aÂ manÂ completely goes out the window when your salary exceeds his. It wouldnâ€™t just bother him a little to not be able to treat you to nicer things. He is saying heÂ could not standÂ to have a woman make more money than he does. Forget if she is happy in her career: if it makeshimÂ unhappy, heâ€™s out of there. Pretty selfish when you think about it that way.
IÂ bangedÂ this one chick
Donâ€™t trust guys who say banged in seriousness. Plenty of guys use that term jokingly, but men who use it in casual conversation, in lieu of â€œhooked up withâ€ or â€œslept withâ€ have pretty degrading views of women. Think about that word: â€œbanged.â€ It implies asserting complete control over something, it can even imply causing pain to something, and it implies doing somethingÂ rapidlyÂ then moving on. Gee. What a romantic.
I donâ€™t find women funny
Science has actually found a connection between a sense of humor and intelligence. That study helps us make a quick connection to this next point: men who say women arenâ€™t funny are essentially saying women are not smart. To be funny you need to be astute, to pick up on subtle, unspoken connections happening around you, toÂ analyzeÂ people. A man who says a woman isnâ€™t funny is saying that a woman canâ€™t do those things.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas
Anyone who actually uses this saying as a license to cheat on their significant other, get arrested for indecent exposure, pick up a street walker, and gamble away money is someone who isÂ lookingÂ for excuses to behave poorly. And theyâ€™ll look for them Vegas or no Vegas.
I donâ€™t like to use condoms
This is not an excuse not to use one! I mean, try aÂ littleÂ harder like, â€œI just got all my test results back and they were negativeâ€ or â€œIâ€™ve never had unprotected sex before.â€ Iâ€™m not saying a women should consent to not using a condom for those reasons, but at least it shows that you donâ€™t think youâ€™re completely entitled to putting a woman at risk of painful and even deadly illnesses, all because you donâ€™t â€œlikeâ€™ to use condoms. Sorry, do you also not like the crusts left on your sandwich little boy?
My girlfriend/wife just doesnâ€™t understand me
Philandering men love to appeal to a womanâ€™s sensitive side when looking for a hookup. They know women like to analyze and â€œunderstandâ€ people and when they hear those little magic words, â€œMy wife doesnâ€™t understand meâ€¦â€ itâ€™s like a challenge to understand the guy. And somehow, in the process, he can try to seduce you. If this guy actually cared about his marriage/relationship he wouldnâ€™t be out telling strangers in tight dresses about his problems: heâ€™d be at home fixing them.
She was such a H*
Are some women, well, slutty? Yes. Does anything good come of calling them so? No. Only aÂ veryÂ angry manâ€”typically with anger against women in generalâ€”openly calls his ex girlfriend a â€œwh*re.â€
Itâ€™s just not something I liked to do
If this is a manâ€™s reasoning for not doing something for his ex girlfriend, that was important to her, run. Itâ€™s like the â€œI donâ€™t like using condomsâ€ line. Soâ€¦thatâ€™s it? You just donâ€™tÂ likeÂ to do it? It wouldnâ€™t have harmed you in any wayÂ tohave done it, itÂ definitelyÂ hurt your exâ€™s feelings that youÂ didnâ€™tÂ do it, and yet, you still didnâ€™t. All to avoid doing something you â€œdidnâ€™t likeâ€ to do.
So I just stopped answering her calls
Another non-communicator on your hands. You know all those guys who broke your heart and made you feel like you didnâ€™t matter when they just stopped responding to your texts and calls? Well just because this particular guy didnâ€™t do that to you, he is still one of them! He is the type who will avoid confrontation and open communication at all costs, even if that means making a woman think sheâ€™s done something wrong when she has not.
You wonâ€™t take shots with me? Lame
No buddy, whatâ€™s lame is you still think youâ€™re in the frat house. Why is it lame a woman doesnâ€™t want to take a profuse amount of shots with you? Because she wants to get a good nightâ€™s rest because she actually cares about her health? Because she wants to be a safe driver? Because she doesnâ€™t want to be hung over at work because she actually cares about her job? Hmmmâ€¦starting to think that whatâ€™s lame is that you, sir, do not care about any of those things. And youâ€™re in you 30â€™s or older. Enjoy managing a Sizzler forever.
FML, LOL, ROLF
Men who canâ€™t speak like grownups are not grownups. Itâ€™s okay to occasionallyâ€”jokinglyâ€”speak in Twitter jargon. But a guy who speaks like this regularly, and seriously, probably also still drinks too much during the week and â€œbangsâ€ chicks.
This one time I kicked this guyâ€™s a**
Good for you. Your intelligence has not exceeded that of a Neanderthalâ€™s. The thing you areÂ mostÂ proud of is being able to throw a punch, something cavemen could do. God forbid you, oh, I donâ€™t know, be a human being and control your animal instincts and use wit orÂ wordsÂ to assert your authority. Oh thatâ€™s rightâ€”you have no wit. Thatâ€™s why youâ€™re cranky and punching people.
I got hookups all over town
If a guy is telling you how he could get you into the busiest clubs, get you a tableright nowÂ at the most sought after restaurant, and introduce you to a celebrity this means two things: A) He is proud of some pretty stupid stuff and B) He is a major partier/playboy!
