Don’t Be One Them: 5 Things Bad Boyfriends Do
No one’s perfect, especially when it comes to being a boyfriend. Everyone has a little slip up once and a while, but it’s the big slip ups that make some boyfriends bad boyfriends. It’s okay to have those few little moments where that sweet doting personality gets a little frustrated. Everyone had those days where no matter how much you want to be nice to your girlfriend, you just can’t. But making a habit out of these days can make a not-so-nice guy. With girls, word spreads like wild-fire and you’ll find yourself being a less than favourable person to date.
Here are five things you should never do as a boyfriend to keep you from being classified in the bad boyfriend zone.
5. Talk About How Pretty Another Woman Is
While your girlfriend is the girl you’re probably most attracted to, there are going to be times when you see an attractive girl. It’s okay to think other women are beautiful, but it’s definitely not okay to tell your girlfriend how beautiful you think other women are. Especially excessively. It can make women feel like you don’t think they’re beautiful, and that’s not a good feeling to have.
4. Flirt In Front Of Us
This is a huge no-no. You want to make your girlfriend feel awful enough to go and complain or cry to all her friends about you and give you the reputation of being a bad boyfriend, flirt with another women in front of her, or in front of her friends. This is an extremely low thing to do.
3. Constantly Brush Off Plans
If you change plans to hang with your girlfriend a lot, it can be really frustrating for her. Each time you make plans to hang out with your girlfriend, she goes through measures to set time aside for you. So it’s important that you do the same. Sometimes things come up, but if you’re constantly blowing off plans to hang out with her, you’re not being a good boyfriend at all.
2. Hang Out With Your Friends Over Us (When We Had A Date)
You made plans to hang out with your girlfriend a few days ago, and about an hour before you’re supposed to meet her, the boys text and ask if you want to go for a drink. And you say yes. A boyfriend who does something like this is generally referred to as a very bad name that won’t be included in this post because it’s an inappropriate thing to say. But this is something you should never do. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to hang out with your friends, and the best way to do that is to plan ahead so you’re not canceling plans on anyone.
1. Ignore Phone Calls & Text Messages
It’s not that you need to answer your text messages within five seconds of receiving them, but be kind enough to answer them when you have a chance. This doesn’t mean answering them one to two days later. Take the time to respond, because if you don’t your girlfriend will probably lose it on you, and you’ll have to deal with bigger issues. So call her back, text her back – just get back to her.
A bad boyfriend is usually the kind of boyfriend who doesn’t actually want to be in the relationship at all. So if you find yourself constantly doing any of the above, you should consider your relationship status and do you and her a favor. Or, maybe you just need to get it together and try a little harder. Either way, no girlfriend should have to endure any of the bad boyfriend habits listed above.
