Top 10 Things Guys Do That Annoy Me

Hi readers!

If you’re like me, then I know you have said to yourself “God, I hate when he does that” or “He is really annoying me right now.” Come on ladies, I know I can’t be the only one here. And isn’t it funny that although the men in our lives do the most annoying possible things to us, we still seem to find them attractive, uberly cute and the most perfect human being we’ve ever seen. Almost as if no matter what they do, or say we will not allow ourselves to judge them based on those things. But, they sure do get under our skin and annoy the HECK out of us. I guess that’s what they call love, right?

But scratch the love part, we aren’t focusing on that today.
What we are focusing on is the 10 most annoying things a guy can do to either — A. Piss me off
B. Turn me off
C. Both A & B

Let’s get to the list! And before I even begin to start with this wonderful, creative and fun list, I want to point out that I am not bashing ANY GUY WHATSOEVER. So, before we start pointing fingers I want to make sure I cover my ground and save my ass. With that being said, let’s get started :)

1. If I text you a long message and you reply back “Ok” or “Oh”… There’s a problem.
2. You act one way through text messages, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.. But in person, you are completely different.
Example: “You’re so beautiful, I can’t wait to see you so I can kiss and hold you.” And then in person, none of that happens.
3. Liars. Enough said there.
4. If you like me, tell me. If you don’t like me, tell me.
You’d be surprised how much girls would be willing to keep a friendship, even if you don’t like them in that sorta way. Honesty is key here, and that is why we hate #3. LOL
5. Cocky < Confident
We get it, you are a man. But there is a huge difference between being a confident person, and being a straight up cocky person.
6. Manners. Please and Thank you’s go a long way. We know that your mama taught you better than that.
7. Respect. I’m taking it back to kindergarten, “Treat others how you want to be treated.”
8. Girls love to feel safe, and secure. But some guys take that a little to the extreme… Don’t be obsessive or controlling. We have a dad for that part, and that position has been filled.
9. “Send me a pic.” Ok– seriously, this needs to be stopped.
10. Don’t bash your friends or family. If you can say nasty and hurtful things about your family and closest friends, I could only imagine the things you say about me behind my back. Don’t be fake.

Ok guys, so there it is! The top 10 things a guy can do to annoy me (in no particular order) I’m sure the list could go on, and on… But I wanted to keep the list pretty short today LOL.

Have a great night guys,

Til next time

My brain has no heart. And my heart has no brain.

Your brain whispers, “You’ll be fine.”
And your heart whispers, “Don’t lie.”

It’s a constant battle between your brain and your heart. Aren’t we suppose to be on the same team?? Yet, they tell us two different things. Different opinions on all our life choices. Love, friends, career, and even family members sometimes! Should this really be a battle?
I’ve contemplated this issue in my head over and over again. I can practically drive myself insane in my own head. I think we all think about the same things, regardless of who we are, our personal preferences, or sexual orientation… WE ARE ALL HUMANS! That’s the wonderful, yet scary thing about love, it is not prejudice.

I am more infatuated with the mind games. And you ALL know exactly what I’m talking about. All those flirty emoji filled text messages, fav tweets and “liked” Instagram photos. No matter how we word it, or how we see it… It is all a form of some sort of mind game. My question is, why? Why do we put ourselves through that. Yes, granted.. As a woman, we need to play a little hard to get. If the challenge becomes too easy, what’s the point of trying right? My mama always told me “A girl worth kissing, shouldn’t be easily kissed.” And I have held that dear to my heart when it comes to a guy I am interested in. Let him take you on a date, enjoy a nice dinner, a movie, or whatever he has planned for you… But what I’ve learned is no matter how great of a girl you could possibly be, you’ll never be good enough for a man who isn’t ready. And that’s where we tend to get caught up and tangled in our emotions. We tend to fall for the ones who aren’t interested in us, and refuse the ones who are. You’ll end up disappointing yourself if you continue to grow up thinking everyone has the same heart as you do. But if you do find someone good enough for you, please hold on to them. And in return, be the best possible person you can be for him/ or her.
As far as I know, the only person I can control is myself. It has taken me a long time to realize that, but better late than never right? I’m focusing on being a good, humble person. Beauty on the inside, shines bright. People tend to notice those things, I promise… Remember that. Give this world good energy, there is enough bad people in this world.
Fill yourself with happiness, fun, laughter, love, friends, friendly strangers and most importantly is family. That’s my little piece of advice to you kids, but please remember… I’m learning too :)

Good things come for those who wait.

Til we meet again

Inside the mind of a woman

Hello lovies!

Okay, so lately I’ve been hearing so much complaining from all the men in my life about how difficult and confusing the mind of a woman is. That got me to thinking, are we really as confusing as men make us out to be? Are women truly that difficult to understand and please? Am I considered to be one of these “typical women” who can’t be figured out by a man because I’m from venus? So here is what I came up with…

I believe that every woman on this planet is uniquely made. We are NOT all alike, and if you believe that every woman is exactly the same.. You have other issues, my friend. But that doesn’t ignore the fact that I do strongly believe that many women share common similarities involving our actions, words, or sensitivity. All these characteristics may vary, but I will take you to the inside of the mind of a woman. It’s a scary place… You have been warned.

Every guy seems to think that all girls are all about the bigger, the better! Whether it’s a car, a ring, or a house. Don’t get me wrong here, we love a big car, big ring, and a big beautiful house… But what guys don’t seem to understand is that sometimes the simple, teeny-tiny things that you do for us, makes up for all the other big things that we could care less about. Ever heard the saying, “It’s the thought that lionroarsmall_grandecounts” well… It is true! A woman would rather you put a lot of thought into a special gift, than walk into a jewelry store and pick out a piece that’s the largest and most expensive.  Of course, I can’t speak for ALL women.. but I’m pretty sure I can speak for most of us (at least the ones with our heads screwed on right!).

I can’t emphasize enough on how truly important it is for a man to show his affection towards a woman he truly loves and cares about. Of course, this works vice versa as well because I know how important it is for a man to receive affection from his woman. This should be a key component in any relationship, but in this new generation of technology advancements and the ability to show affection in different ways because it’s not just physical now. Not exactly sure what I’m talking about? Think about it… Every woman loves to be mentioned in his Facebook status, his tweet, even his Instagram for #WCW (woman crush Wednesday). Social networking has really improved the ability for someone to show affection, who may not be so comfortable showing it physically. And guys, take notes here. Every woman loves this. No woman will admit this, but we love when you show us off and make us feel as if we are your “entire world” it makes us feel good about ourselves. Treat your woman like a queen, and she will treat you like a king.

Til next time,
