7 Ways on How to Annoy Your Boyfriend
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.
