10 Things You Shouldn’t Say to Women

We all know that women are sensitive. But not always for the wrong reasons. People say things to women that if they looked inward, they would know is not appropriate… but they say these things anyway! Here are some things you shouldn’t say to your wife, girlfriend, sister… or any woman really…


Never tell a woman to relax. Unless of course she’s waving around a knife getting ready to cut off something very special to you….but otherwise. YOU relax. She is obviously dealing with some sort of emotion whether it be anger, sadness, insecurity, etc… and telling her to relax is discounting her feelings. And when was the last time anyone actually relaxed when you told them to?


EXCUUUSE ME? Do you have any idea what it feels like to be eaten by hormones all while developing a small nile river in between your legs? I think not. If you bled out of your beloved part every month for sometimes an entire week… you would understand.


Never say this… you obviously don’t care what she has to say, or you think her feelings are bogus… which is why you are trying to say I love you and get the fight over with. We will know you don’t mean it, and the fight will continue, probably with more intensity.


Now this one I’m on the fence with… if my fiance asked me if I gained wait I would really have to look at myself closely. He sees me everyday, so if I’m starting to gain weight I want him to tell me. But on the other hand, if someone who I havent seen for years approaches me and says this… I will probably be pretty upset. Not to mention, there are nicer ways to bring up weight gain than to tell me I look like I’m bursting at the seams.


Maybe because I AM angry you homeless stranger! One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone I don’t know tells me to smile. So because I’m a woman I’m not allowed to be angry!? My anger is not directed towards you… Maybe I just got pulled over, and thats why I have this scowl on my face. If I’m scowling, you can either ask me what’s wrong, or don’t talk to me at all.


OH god. This one! When you get into a small argument with your woman, don’t bring up how she “always” or “never” does something. You know good and well that is NOT true, and you do realize those words will explode this minor argument into a catastrophic event, right?


Yes, I can put away large amounts of food, especially during that time of the month… but please don’t notice, and if you do notice, please don’t scream it out in the middle of me scarfing down my carne asada nachos. Then I will just feel like a fat pig with jalapeños sticking out of my mouth. Say something nice, like “I’m really glad we can just go at a box of pizza with no shame.” Then that is connecting our fat ass-ness to each other.


When she’s doing something as simple as carrying a box…full of paper…Women are strong! Men have this misconception that women are frail and dainty, but in this day and age…. women are showing up and don’t need you to help ALL the time. Sure, sometimes it’s chivalrous if she’s obviously struggling… but if I’m skipping a long happily don’t gasp like I’m about to snap in half. With Crossfit ladies, and all of these other awesomely strong women out there, we don’t need you no’ mo! (Well we do, just not for that!)


When I give you a tidbit of information, don’t automatically think I’m telling a fib or I’m just misinformed. Even if the info is about sports, or some other predominately male pastime. Most women won’t comment on anything, especially not sports, if they don’t know what they’re talking about. And when you ask me if I’m Sure, it makes it feel like you neither trust, or believe me.


This one is not talking but, this is obviously another attempt to shut her up. She is not going to want to kiss you, and it will only make her more and more upset. She might even grimace at you with disgust and something like “Get those nasty lips away from me!” And continue her rampage.

So there are 10 things you should not say to a woman. We aren’t always mad, but when we are…it’s probably because you have done or said something ridiculous and stupid. So watch your tongue, fellas.

  9. When strange men tell me to smile on the street, store, etc I just want to punch them in the face! Some men think women are public property and that we owe them to smile, we owe them to talk to them on the street/store/any public place. I have been approached very rudely by men, ignored them and then been scolded by other men just passing by for not reciprocating! (Sorry, maybe slightly off-topic.. 🙂

    1. Hey Emily! Thanks for the comment which is definitely NOT off topic. We don’t owe them a smile. We don’t owe them anything! I totally agree with you.

    1. Hey Tony! Thanks for the comment! That post will probably pop up sometime next week! And let me just say, this list is merely a recommendation. If you know the woman some of these things might not even make her upset! For instance, sometimes I don’t get offended if my man tells me I can eat like a pig. Sometimes I do. You just need to gauge your woman’s mood and then you will know what to say. But NEVER, EVER tell her to relax. That one I can promise will make her upset. Unless of course you’re giving her a massage and saying “Relax, baby.” Then go for it!
