4 Things You Should Never Say to Your Woman
Are you noticing that your girlfriend or wife is less open with you or communicates less frequently than she may have in the beginning of your relationship? Is she the chatterbox type that is starting to shut down around you? Guys, you may be wondering why that special someone in your life is acting this way. Believe it or not, it could be something as simple as what you said to her. Here are just a few things that you should always steer clear of when talking to your significant other.
1. “How was it?” – Closeness is important and plays a big part in a healthy relationship. With that said, we’re not always going to be the best at the craft of love making. Guys should stay away from asking a woman prior to !ntimacy about whether it was good or not because she may not be completely honest with her response in fear of hurting her man’s feelings. Instead, keep it simple and tell her how much you enjoyed it. Let her open up to you on her terms.
2. “You are overreacting!” – The last thing you would ever want to do as a guy is to discount a woman’s feelings. We already know that guys are hardwired differently than woman and usually it’s women who are more emotionally founded. When you go as far as telling them this which essentially tells them either their feelings don’t matter or they shouldn’t feel the way that they do, it’s only going to make matters worse. Instead, ask her if she can help you understand her feelings and if there is anything that you can do to help her feel better.

3. “How much do you weigh?” or even “Do you want to work out?” – As an avid fitness enthusiast, I always knew that it was important for me to find a partner that is at least remotely interested in physical activity and working out. Among the almost obvious things to not say to a woman is the question of how much they weigh because this may bring out insecurities that she may have. What if she just isn’t a hardcore gym fanatic such as yourself but you really would like her to join you one day in the gym? How should you go about it? Deflect the attention to yourself! Tell her you’re going to the gym and ask her if she would like to hop along. More often that not, she probably won’t have a problem with it. I’m sure she’s proud of you for doing what it takes to stay fit!
4. “What’s wrong now?” – There are times when you will clearly know something is amiss with your lady. When asking her in this manner, guys can come across as confrontational. She may not even want to bother talking to you about it anymore after this and the last thing you would want is to have your partner holding things on the inside. This should never happen because in order for relationships to be successful, one of the most important things to have is an open line of communication at all times!
If guys stay away from saying or asking these types of things, they can save themselves a lot of headaches and aggravation in the long run. You do not want to shut your woman down from talking to you and by understanding that her brain is hardwired differently, you can keep her from shutting down that vital line of communication in your relationship!
