What Men Shouldn’t Say To Women

Updated on December 1, 2015

What Men Shouldn’t Say To Women

Everybody tells us that honesty and sincerity are the keys to a happy couple. But I personally don’t think so. If there is place where transparency is not recommended it is in a couple. Don’t get me wrong, I am not suggesting you lie to your partner. What I am saying is that sometimes you should learn to keep your mouth shut for the sake of romantic bliss. If not, think about all those instances when you said something –in good faith- to your couple in an effort to be sincere and all you achieved was a week sleeping on the sofa! Yes, there are several things that you should never tell her.

What Men Shouldn’t Say To Their Partner Regarding Other Women

1) If she asks you if a woman is pretty, you know already that you better not say YES, she is gorgeous. A better response would be “Yes, she is pretty but she has a very cold look, not very seductive or attractive

2) If she asks you what was your sex life like with your ex… please do not go into details. Do not even say it was good, do not say what you did or didn’t do. Better say, “Nothing outstanding or worth remembering” and change the subject quickly.

3) Never talk about your ex girlfriends or your ex wife. Whether you have some amusing story to tell, a nice memory or bitter recollections, do not talk about them with the new woman in your life. We all like to think that we are unique and even if we don’t ask you to be a virgin, we would like to think that we are the first, the best, the ONLY woman in your life.

4) Never talk about other girl’s qualities to your girl. Even if you do not mean it, she will hear that you are comparing her to someone else and worst, she is losing.

What Men Shouldn’t Say When She Does Something To please

1) Now my friends, please never criticize a woman’s effort to please you. Whether it is a dinner that she made for you –and went terribly wrong-,(this happens to me very often...) a new hairstyle that she tried for a date with you, or a love letter she wrote to you. Whatever she does to please you has to be appreciated even if the end result is less than good. After all she has spent all afternoon preparing that special recipe for you, shaving her legs, plucking her eyebrows and so on. So if you want a peaceful moment just be thankful for whatever she did and next time take her to a restaurant rather than let her do the cooking.

2) If a girl gives you a compliment, never answer with a “it’s funny how many women have told me that already” or she will be looking for the next door to exit ASAP. Better be humble or give her back an even nicer compliment.

3) Never laugh or make fun of her sexual fantasies. You are someone privileged to enter and be trusted into her fantasy world, don’t ruin it. If you are lucky enough to have her acting out YOUR sexual fantasies, never criticize her afterwards for it, even if your fantasy was not up to what you were expecting.

What Men Shouldn’t Say About Themselves

1) Please, do not play your insecurity crisis with your girl. Telling her that you are fat and ugly and you will never look like Brad Pitt will not gain you any compliments. After all, she is there with you because she loves you, or at least because she likes you. Playing the “poor me” won’t take you anywhere. It is true that women like men who can accept their faults but one thing is accepting your shortcomings and something different is to complain like a 5 year old about not looking the way you want to look or not being able to do what you want to do.

2) Do not make up long explanations for a bad sexual performance. If you had an “accident” in bed the last thing she wants to hear is a list of excuses of why your little soldier did not perform. Of course the worst excuse in the list of bad excuses is to blame her for your disappointing act.

How To Please A Woman In & Out Of Bed

How To Please A Woman In & Out Of Bed

Learn how to read a woman's mind and body, and your love life will sizzle! This sensual little volume reveals the secrets you're dying to know-and your lovers hope you'll find out.


About Everyday Life:

If a woman asks you what dress looks better on her “the red one or the black one?. Do not answer directly. Do not tell her which one you like better. At this stage, most women have already made up their mind but they are looking for reassurance on their choice. The best answer is to ask her which one she likes best. Ask her why she likes that one best –probably she’ll tell you because it goes better with her shoes and makes her look slimmer- Take advantage and compliment her choice of accessories to go with the dress. Something like “great choice, you’ll look fabulous” will gain you extra points and start a good night!

Do Not Go Silent

Unless you really mean it… do not go silent on her. When a man goes silent it is easy for a woman to feel unloved. She does not want you answering to her every thought but she wants some signs that you are listening to her.

The Difference In Satisfying A Man And A Woman:

How to satisfy a woman every time:

Love, caress, praise, pamper, relish, massage, savour, empathise, fix things, compliment, serenade, feed, support, worship, idolize, indulge, embrace, dream of, tease, gratify, forgive, soothe, tantalise, make her laugh, hug, kiss, console, phone, protect, spoil, embrace, charm, smooch, trust, defend, clothe, sanctify, hear, look at, listen to, befriend her, die for!

How to satisfy a man every time:

Arrive naked!

Some Men And Women Quotes:

"It is the woman who chooses the man who will choose her" Paul Géraldy (1885-1983) French poet.

"The cocks may crow, but it's the hen that lays the egg." Margaret Thatcher

"While farmers generally allow one rooster for ten hens, ten men are scarcely sufficient to service one woman." Giovanni Boccaccio (1313-1375) Italian poet

How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.” Oscar Wilde

“Every woman needs one man in her life who is strong and responsible. Given this security, she can proceed to do what she really wants to do-fall in love with men who are weak and irresponsible.” Richard J. Needham.

      I think it should be "what you shouldn't say to your significant other", cause reading all this i realized that the same should be expected of women as well! The end of the article was ridiculously stupid, and besided I don't find naked women attractive at all, i dont know why, i care more about her personality and I think when a woman has something on, then it always looks way more attractive. And by the way, many men like to be spoiled etc too!

      Worship and idolize??

      No too much of that on list. tease her instead! Flirt joke and then twist it on her so ur teasing her. Let her be playful back.

      Ive never seen a worshipping and idolizing a girl turn into a good relationship... Sorry things dont work logically like that here.

      Hahaha: I love Italian poets, always so lucid...

      Ryan: I think that there is a limit between being honest and being silly. Honesty is essential in a relationship, but excess honesty like admiting to your girlfriend that you are looking at other women because they are prettier, or making fun of her fantasies is just silly as it is a direct route to disaster. You can be honest and be tactful at the same time. It is all about finding the perfect balance.

      "Princessa", I have a lady friend by the same"nick name" nomenclature here in Santa Fe. She won't let any man into her life though! I've known her for years and she's very beautiful but non of us have found her anyone after we all (of course) have tried to woo her. She's a "good girl" but due to her provocative looks, still can't find anyone. (sweet article:)

      this hub is one sided... never meant to offend the author but, this will only make a woman think that her partner is showing him his true thoughts feeling and etc. even though it is not, and hello? you think it would always satisfy a man if you always arrive naked?

      i have to say i dont aggrea with most of what you say, i belive when asked by some one who loves you they want the truth, if you lie about it then they will always know then think there is something wrong with it.

      i think now and then it is correct to not tell your better half something but never to lie about it.

      except for that a great hub women never know what they rearly want but they expect you to know every time.

      "Whatever she does to please you has to be appreciated even if the end result is less than good."

      Let's try some good old fashioned egalitarianism here, shall we?

      Ladies, never,never,never criticize your man for not taking you out to the expensive restaurant you wanted to go to or for losing his job and being unable to provide for you in the manner which you'd like.

      Sound fair? Of course not. So why should we have to lick your boots when the "shoe is on the other foot"?

      "So... how can we satisfy a man? LOL I hope the list is not as long as the woman's ;-)"

      Here's an idea,it's really easy to grasp(LOL),I promise.


      Do you realize how many of these "do's and don'ts" lists written by women for men there are? Probably billions. They're always contradictory, and usually rooted in the woman's infantile and vain assumption that she "deserves nothing less than perfection" because she was born with a vagina.

      Let me extend a piece of helpful advice to women from a man,as a form of reciprocation,in light of the fact that you have been shovelling your "advice" at us by the truckload,MEN DO NOT LIKE WOMEN WHO TELL THEM WHAT TO DO.

      You have yourself a splendid day now,sweetie. ;)

      I'm starting to think that there may be hope on hub pages. This is the second actually helpful non-man-bashing advice hub I've found in two days. Granted, after the first fiew "men are stupid and clueless" hubs I read, I quit bothering.

      I found this helpful and entertaining. And I agree with SirDent, naked is OK, but it will take more than that. #1 on the list - sincere respect.

      I agree with your point about men not talking about their exes infront of you- Its probably the most annoying and awkward thing a man can do!! However, this works both ways- women shouldn't do it to men either!

      Yes honesty is the best policy, but I think often people mistake honesty for full disclosure. As you have suggested it is better if men do not go into all the nitty gritty details about their exs, and the same is also prudent advice for women. Great hub and I enjoyed reading it.

      Nice hub Princessa. I do hate when my wife asks me what outfit looks better. I haved learnt that if I do answer her I should be looking at her and her outfits and not the t.v. If I guess the wrong outfit and she says she likes the other one better I say I did to I just didnt want all the other guys looking at you.

      Princessa I agree with you 100%. It seemed to be incomplete, however. Why not write another hub advicing women ..'what / what not to tell men'. That would complete it. Thumbs up.

      I wish this hub is read by those who strongly believe that marriage is all about honesty and tranparency. It's high time they get to know how wrong they are.

      This is great because it's honest. We women like to pretend that we don't play games, or we just want honesty, but sometimes that's not what we actually want. It's true, women can be confusing sometimes.

      That doesn't mean, however, that men can't be JUST as confusing! We ladies need a hub now about what men mean versus what they say!

      I enjoyed reading this article. My husband is good about most of this stuff except number 1 at the very top. My husband will never, ever tell me another woman is pretty. Even if she is the prettiest thing walking the face of the Earth, he finds something wrong with her. I tell him its ok to think other people are pretty, but he still will never admit that another girl is. Its not necessarily a bad thing, but still a little irritating because Id rather he be honest but not take it to an extreme :0)
