5 Signs You're a Nag

Updated on November 28, 2010

I don't want to make a blanket statement and claim that all women nag, but, at some point, most of us will get involved with a male who brings the nag-hag out. We may have been perfectly laid back with other men, but something about some men in particular drives us to turn into our mothers. This is usually a good indication of incompatibility, but few people realize it until the nagging evolves into a worsening relationship. If you're a woman who does these things it's time to re-evaluate your relationship. If you're with a man who never does anything he says he's going to do, it's time to find a new man. And if you're a man who simply hates doing anything you promise to do, it's time to grow up! The following 5 Signs You're a Nag are intended to help you help yourself!

1. Every question you ask starts with, "Why haven't you...?"

Ladies, I know it's annoying when he continuously "forgets" to put the seat down (or at least improve his aim) but if you've spent more time asking him why he sucks so badly at this (and other things) than asking him how his day was, something is wrong here. Clearly, he's either doing this to wind you up, or he's just that socially inept -- in either case, a new man is probably in order.

2. You repeat each question three times, in growing increments of volume.

Hey, I'm not judging. In fact, I'm pretty sure the reason you end up doing this is because your cowboy is upping the volume on the telly each time you ask, leaving you no choice but to holler. Get clever, ladies... remove the batteries from the remote before you ask him a question, cos you know he's way too lazy to get up and walk two feet to do it the old fashioned way.

3. You remind him to take the trash out 10 times between dinner and bed.

Like I said, I'm not judging. I know the reason you're doing it -- cos he won't take the trash out if you don't ask him 10 times. He'll promise, but he won't. Eventually you'll get tired of this kind of thing and you'll either just do it yourself, or you'll find a man who does what he says.

4. You send 5 texts during the work day to remind him about your anniversary dinner.

Ladies, if you've got to remind a man about this more than once (or at all, frankly) he's not that into you. And you surely shouldn't be so into him, because he doesn't deserve you! If you have to text these things, something is wrong!

5. You spend more time making demands than you do making nookie.

Erm, exception being making demands whilst making nookie, which can be perfectly sexy. Anything else, however, is not. If you spend most of your energy following him around and complaining about where he last left his socks, you're not going to be in the mood for naughtiness later. Everyone argues or nags once in a while, but if you do it more than you do, erm, other things, something is wrong!
