In America, we’re deluged with what women want out of men in everything from magazines to Rom-Coms. However, there’s not as much attention paid to what men want in a woman. This is a problem because a lot of guys are scared about being honest and a lot of women who give advice about this subject act like a woman is doing a man a favor just by being with him in the first place. This is a bad thing because it deprives women of the information they need to get the man they want. So, here’s the real truth you won’t get in a lot of other places presented in an unsparing way. Let’s get real: What turns men off?
1) Being Unattractive: Men are looks-oriented. In fact, it’s typically their number one priority. So, are you in shape? How are you dressed? Is it sexy or sloppy? Did you do your hair and your make-up? Looks aren’t everything, but they’re highly important to men. If you’re not attractive, you’ll have trouble getting men interested and if you let yourself go after you get into a relationship, your man is going to be a lot more unhappy about that than he will probably let on. A woman who goes from hot to not is like a guy who goes from millionaire CEO to broke and watching TV on the couch all day instead of looking for a job. It can be a deal-breaker.
2) Excessive Drama: If you’re with a woman, a little drama comes with the package. There’s going to be some crying, some overly-emotional reactions and wackiness you’ll almost never have to deal with when you’re hanging with guys. That’s okay. Don’t freak out because you cry on your man’s shoulder after you have a bad day. On the other hand, when this is overdone, it gets really old in a hurry. Guys don’t want to deal with screaming fights, baseless jealousy and unnecessary hissy fits. If a woman is attractive enough and good in bed, she can get by with being high maintenance for a while, but over the long haul, most guys would rather walk away.
3) Being Masculine: Unless a guy is gay, he doesn’t want to be in a relationship with someone who behaves like a man. He doesn’t want to be bossed around. He doesn’t want you making all the decisions. The moment he starts to feel like he’s struggling to be the more masculine one in the relationship, he’s going to start looking for the door unless he’s really desperate or really beta.
