7 Ways on How to Annoy Your Boyfriend

Updated on January 25, 2012

The goal of every relationship is to have a happy and loving time. However, as women, we have a lot of power and control over our men - whether you know it or not. We have the ability to make them smile, or make them hurt.

One important ability we have is to annoy our men. This is important as men are quite annoying sometimes, too. But if you've never thought about this aspect of a relationship and need help trying to annoy your boyfriend, below are seven tips on how to start.

In case you haven't heard, annoying your boyfriend leads to better birthday presents... Google it.

1. Make him shout excitedly at a second hour of "Teen Mom 2"

I know my boyfriend absolutely hates to watch Teen Mom 2 with me. He'll put up with it and laugh when the characters on the show make stupid decisions, but the quickest way to annoy him is to not tell him that there are back-to-back episodes. This leads to him getting excited when the credits start rolling, only to become absolutely devastated when the second hour of the show begins.

2. Pretend you don't know him in public places

This one is rather fun. Sometimes when we're riding public transportation, I like to pretend I don't know my boyfriend - making him look like a stalker of sorts when he pulls me in for a hug, etc.

But after playing this game for about 5 minutes, boyfriends will tend to become annoyed. You know what they are like, ladies... Boys need attention.

3. Complain when there is nothing he can do about it

In an economy like the one we're all in right now, I know my boyfriend works incredibly hard to make a living and put food on our table. But a girl has got needs. Walking more than 2 miles in the freezing cold to get to the train - only for another hour commute to get to downtown - doesn't make a girl happy.

Here is when I like to complain... and what makes this annoying situation number three, is that he can't do anything about it. Very annoying, indeed.

4. Demand to buy things he cannot afford

Birkin bags, BMW 5 series, Cartier bracelets, expensive dinners... all these things I know he cannot afford. But I would like them, and so I ask my boyfriend (from time to time). Boyfriends absolutely hate it when you ask them for things they know they cannot afford.

This is an excellent method to annoy that boyfriend of yours.

5. Force him to be your mannequin and make-up model

Since my boyfriend and I live together, I haven't got that many faces to try new make up techniques on - I mean, I have my face and... that's it. So, sometimes I like to use my boyfriends eyes to try new mascaras and eyeliners.

He hates this.

Its fun... But very annoying, I would assume.

6. Play "The SIms" nearly 24 hours a day

My favorite computer game is "The Sims". In fact, I have a tendency to play too much, sometimes. My boyfriend is patient with me when I get into these phases where all my time spent at home will be behind a computer playing with my virtual Sim family - which, by the way, is just my boyfriend and I and our son and a few extra virtual babies. Sometimes our weekends will be spent at home just to allow me to play "The Sims".

On these weekends, my boyfriend will just stand in the corner of the living room occupying his time by putting tiny golf balls into a fake cup... Boring!

But one of the fastest ways to annoy a boyfriend is to be TOO geeky - like me... when I decide to play "The Sims".

Oh, don't even get me started on "Diablo II"... Oh Em Gee!

7. When it is designated "nap time," Stay awake...

When my boyfriend is sleepy he likes to take naps and I know that he likes to hug me while he sleeps, so we'll designate certain hours as "nap time". However, sometimes I'll decide to watch a soap opera on the computer or play video games, or play a game on my cellphone - placing the phone right in my boyfriend's face while he sleeps. This annoys him and is a sure-fire way to annoy any boyfriend.

Try it. Use his face as your cellphone's backstop while he sleeps, and you'll understand what I mean.

      This is awful. I was hoping this would be a satirical piece clearly outlining, and exaggerating, things you really DON'T want to do to/with your boyfriend. Rather, you come across as a whiny 15-year-old who's so insecure with your relationship that you actively test it by being obnoxious all the time. This is not funny and you're not cute.

      Try considering his feelings and needs for once. He'll graduate from girls to women soon, with or without you. Don't be the ex that he and his new lady laugh about while actually enjoying their time together.

      By the way, one way "on how" to annoy your readers is to include useless and redundant words in the title of your post.

      Hahahahaha.... I might do all these things to make things more exciting. Just for kicks, but I wouldn't go that far. Maybe a couple of those suggestions. Up and funny. :)

      Damn, and I just want my gf too do other guys in front of me, when she thinks I am asleep. But then again? I would NEVER even look at another girl, or flirt with another. A gf that's a goody 2 shoes, is no picnic. :(

      I guess this would be useful if you desperately need to be single.

      Good stuff! I would just like to add these: Describing chick flicks in detail, explaining the background of every contestant on Project Runway and forcing him to decide which shoes go better with your outfit.

      Your BF seems like a great guy. Give me his number. I'm sure he will finish with you in no time. He deserves better.

      Pretty good article when you are in need of a good laugh. But gee... I wish my girlfriend will stumble across this hub and try pulling the tricks on me. I know exactly how to counter them all. The last time she acted like she wasn't too proud of me in public, i got me a girl who was on the spot and you can guess who ended up getting annoyed.

      Try these tips, but make sure your boyfriend's name is not Larry. Hahahaha

      voted up and useful!

      Thanks for the funny hub! I'm not sure I would want to annoy my man (need to keep him on board) but appreciate the feelings of exasperation with them. Women rule!

      that's sick.

      i don't get it.

      i'd never want to annoy my fiancé.

      why is everyone getting into this? if you love them, why would you want to annoy them. Love is all about building the other up, supporting the other, etc but making life a pain by coming up with creative ways to annoy him doesn't seem befitting for a loving relationship.

      Sounds like you girls are lucky to have the men you do! and perhaps don't deserve either.

      Oh that's funny! My fiancé would be sooo frustrated at me!

      Sometimes when he's on his laptop doing something (and completely ignoring me) I'll just make whale noises, kinda like Dory on Finding Nemo. He finds this very annoying, but hey, it keeps me entertained. It's what he gets for making me watch Glee when I greatly dislike that show.

      No 3 would definitely annoy me the most. Guys are about getting things done and it annoys us when we are not able to get things done. And to have a girlfriend complain about it, and not being able to do anything about it, that's REALLY annoying!

      Thanks for making me laugh...I didn't realize there were so many obnoxious ways to annoy a man. The only thing I do is talk on Facebook. My boyfriend HATES it! He gets so mad and starts going off about how I "talk to my electronic friends" more than him, which is ridiculous. I am on Facebook, but when I come home from work, I can check the history on my computer and find that my boyfriend has actually been looking on my Facebook page. Can a man explain this to me? :)
