What Turns OFF Men?

Updated on May 25, 2012
Source

Scene 1

Ms. XX moves into Mr. XY house. Finds it utterly cluttered and messy. Her first reaction is "Eww, XY here's the Swiffer please clean this mess." Mr. XY is just not happy. He finds the mess extra close to him and wonders WHY he has to clean it ALL. Being it first time; he will do it. But, since he has a habit of being messy he DOES NOT like to be reminded constantly. Mess was his friend, his companion and now that Ms. XX is in his house, it will be a BIG adjustment for his mess and himself.

While XY is cleaning up, XX goes and starts to clear off XY's toiletries in the vanity area. XY is eyeing her suspiciously and hurries in to the site. To sound pleasant, he asks her what is she doing and XX very sweetly says, "Oh, honey don't bother. I will make space for my makeup et. al. You just continue to clean up your room so, that I can settle my stuff in there as well." XY is not happy. He breathes a deep sigh and continues clearing up his first love, the mess.

Living room furniture was very old. XX brings in her leather couches and sweetly calls an organization to pickup the "old ragged furniture" which is actually being donated and XY is being told that he is gaining good karma points for doing it. XY bids them a teary bye-bye and is not happy.

Scene 2

The couple go shopping for dinnerware and grocery. XY is aimlessly moving the cart where-ever XX wants him to. He has no interest but, gotta make their house a home now!

There is cooking by XX and XY is very happy to get home cooked food. YAY! But, after the dinner, he is gotta do the dishes. He just shudders and aimlessly puts the dishes in the dish-washer. XX is not happy since; they have just invested a good amount in those dishes and wants them to be laid down properly. She says sweetly, "Let me show you how to put them in the dishwasher." XY is very happy to get off the hook. He quickly moves to one side and then starts fidgeting in his pockets. XX is not happy. She waits up for him to stabilize and keeps staring at him. XY can feel something penetrate in him. He stops it and pays attention.

Next day after dinner, XY is supposed to load the dishwasher and he is under pressure 'cause he has to be efficient especially since; XX is watching her keenly. He is not happy.

Scene 3

Dishes are set in the dishwasher and it's ON...Phew! XY is already exhausted!

But hears the television sound and comes into the living room. He finds XX sitting comfortably and engrossed in a show. He thinks, "hmmm, now how can I get hold of the remote so that I can switch the channel?" Any amount of pleasing and cuddling with XX did not work. He had to give away his remote control. XY is not happy.

Scene 4

XY and XX have plans to meet XX's parents for dinner. XX is happy yet anxious and is uttering a list of TO-DO's to XY to which he is hardly paying attention. He has been asked to dress up formally. XY is not happy. They reach XX's parent's home and XY is adjusting his tie and his pants nervously. XX asks him to cut it off.

The dinner go well except that XX is way too perky and XY cannot match with her energy. Thus, is quiet most of the time and is missing his home, his TV.

Dinner done, they say their bye-bye's and reach their home. XY like a kid, jumps for the remote and starts watching his show. He has been interrupted by XX to come and change since; the formals could get crumpled. XY is a kid, he is not happy but goes to change in order to avoid making a scene.

Scene 5

XY's quota of TV is done. He comes to the room to find XX chatting with her girl-friend and giving her every bit of juicy detail. He is not happy and has a frown on his face. XX feels it and cuts down the conversation and eventually hangs up.

By now, we all know what TURNs-OFF Men.

Men and Mess are synonyms. They LOVE each other and below are a few pointers to avoid making them tick off.

Top Turn-OFFs in Men

  • When asked to clean the mess
  • When their space is taken over
  • When asked to help out
  • When asked to clean themselves up
  • When their remote is taken away
  • When his girl is spending a lot of time with her GF and giving in all details.



Come to think of it...Men are harmless creatures 'cause their reasons to be ticked off are FEW as compared to the many ways they are ALWAYS happy and carefree :)

  • They are up to the point in conversation...sweet and brief.
  • Their last name always stays the same...FOREVER!
  • They are happy-go-lucky creatures...IF they are not invited to a party, the host is still their friend
  • They can survive in one pair of jeans even IF they are on a vacation.
  • Christmas time or any festival coming...no problemo! They can shop for 30 relatives in 30 minutes!
  • They really don't bother on how they look.
  • They can keep your secrets!!
  • They DON'T freak out IF they see a guy wearing a same shirt as theirs!






Every Conclusion should be happy

Men are as light hearted as Women are so, let's just not try to tick them off and vice-versa.

I wish all XX and XY's to unite and love by taking into account each other's fault's and compromise for life is short so, gotta make it sweet.

I have this wonderful song from Adele...One and Only!

Disclaimer:

These Turn-OFF's have been statistically researched and does not point to any MAN out there. Amen!

      I don't typically like generalities, but I agree that this is the standard view of men. Personally I am far neater, more organized and a better homemaker than any of the women I have known.

      As a man and a cat-owner I sometimes go away for a week and have women friends move in then to look after my Tiggy. Whilst I am very grateful for this when I get back I can never find anything because they all insist on tidying everything away and cleaning the rooms. Some things I never find again. I knew where everything was before, none of the clutter or piles of papers and books etc was causing any harm and when it has all been made neat and tidy I admit I am not happy! Up and Funny!

      Hi Sweetiepie,

      I am living in the sunny california and am fortunate to be enjoying the privileges of being an independent woman. However, I am referring to the rest of the world, dear where women are still not opinionated and men tend to lead the path.

      Cheers!

      Hi Ruchira,

      I guess you have never lived in Sotuhern California :). I am going to agree to disagree with you on it still being a man's world because I come from a culture where more women are getting college degrees, and more women are earning more money than men. A lot of women my age are not even getting married right away, and when they do they expect a spouse who will share in the house keeping. If a woman wants to clean up after her husband and cater to his every whim, she has the freedom to do that, but a lot of guys might find themselves eating take out alone if they want to carry on this way in our modern era. In fact I heard some guy complaining about how he could never find a nice girl, but it turned out it was because he was not willing to bend. There can be compromise in a relationship, but liberal feminist women do not bend to the whims of a man who is grumpy over his remote. We want a partner who actual reads online articles, and enjoys similar interests in TV shows. Or we tell him to build a man cave ( also known as a den), where he can go watch his football game undisturbed, just as we have our own space for art and watching girly movies. Ruchira so what I am not saying is ideals, this is how many of us Southern California women live.

      Ruchira 5 years ago from United States

      haha...Sweetiepie I love your ideals but, realistically speaking this is still a man's world...lol so, gotta bend and twist here and there.

      wishing you the best, my friend :)

    • SweetiePie profile image

      SweetiePie 5 years ago from Southern California, USA

      I am a feminist and a relationship critic. I am the single girl that says hold out for your happiness before thinking of that of a man. I am a nice person, but this is what I have seen everywhere, there are more articles about how not to turn men off than there are articles about how not turn women off. I think we should just think about being considerate to each other, and less hard on women who already have low self esteem issues. I see way too many women worrying about upsetting a guy in a relationship because of articles that say how not to upset the man. Oh and not that I plan on getting married, but the man will have to consider changing his last name to mine. It is a whole new world, and I refuse to live it according to antiquated ideals, and the man I am with would have to be a bit more humble pie than some.

      There comes a time when husbands and wives need to bend and do something for each other. I do not like the Super Bowl Sunday, but I cannot relate the number of time I have prepared husband's and friend's favorite dishes and sat it out with the other wives as the men howled and swore at the teams and players as if they were in the den with us. I tried for years to enjoy it, but I never did.

      One good way to deal with men who do not want to change things they need to change is to present a compromise when they ask their wives to change something, and they do ask or voice a displeasure about something! Smart wives can handle that like magic if they wait for the right signals--when he is in a good mood, when he is affectionate, when he REALLY wants her to change something, etc.

      Scenario:

      Husband: Honey, can we get started on our family now? I am ready for our son! Two years is too long.

      Wife: Yes, honey, but being pregnant would probably slow me down, and I probably won't have enough energy to pick up your clothes off the floor every day.

      Husband: I get the picture, babe. I can handle that. Deal?

      Wife: Deal!

      I think that women need to be careful about trying to change some things about there husbands, but, at the same time, they need to be careful, lest they become slaves!

      Ruchira, this hub is close to my heart because you have approved many things which I thought women would always disapprove. Like mess and same pair of jeans. Now I am clearly proud of it. Then shopping. I can always buy a saree for my wife in 5 minutes which is always better than what she buys in 5 hours. Ruchira, I think the people who are saree sellers must be the most patient among the male species. Thanks again for the wonderful hub. You've made me proud of my shortcomings(?). AwMen. Love you my very dear friend.

      Very smartly-written hub! You intelligently pointed out all the likes of men and certain things that turn off men in the form of short example-stories! I too have heard about such types of men and I totally agree with you. I would like to tell you that my father is different from other men- he likes to be neat and tidy-he dislikes mess, always lends a helping hand to my mother and let my mother chat with her sisters a lot and even tease him with affection. After all, they are a happily married couple for the past 29 years! Touchwood.

      Men are just wired differently from us gals, right? This is a fun Hub. I voted it UP, etc.

      This reminds me of a boyfriend I had in 2000. I HAD TO do some interior decorating, to the annoyance of his teenage-son who had been the decorator since the age of 4. Otherwise I would not have been able to stay 2 hours in that house. After 2 years, or let me rather say after the second holiday of 10 days - because I'd spent only weekends with them - I had enough of them.

      Men down here are weird... Most of them still believe women's place is in the kitchen and the bedroom. Their ego's cannot handle a woman with an opinion of her own.

      So I'll rather enjoy my single status and home where I can do whatever I like to do.

      Ruchira, I've voted this hub of yours up and well-explained :)

      haha Yes, Cindy. XY sure took LOTS of time to adjust when XX moved in :)

      who says moving in with an opposite sex is easy :)

      thanks for your voice and support :)

      Nice hub Ruchira. The metaphor was done really well with scenes...so true what Shakespeare said, we're indeed all just mere actors playing on the stage of life - men and women alike

      Haha, love the last part. Men are don't hold grudges too--at least from my observation of my husband. Friends can tick them off, yet you hardly hear them complain. Thanks for the interesting hub.

      Hi Ruchira, nice hub. I liked the point about taking a man's remote away from him; definitely a big "no-no"! Have a great day :)

      I love your points on why they are always happy and carefree. It is true they don't care if another man wears the same t-shirt. Although, I would prefer that once in awhile they wear a polo. Enjoyed the read and the smile in my day.

      HaHa..I got a kick out of reading this. Everyone needs their own space. If i were a man and this woman moved into my house, i would say, " Goodby, don't let the door hit you on your way out "..fun topic Ruchira..Cheers

      Very clever! I enjoyed the read. Men are certainly different from us, aren't they? I guess that's a good thing.

      I once met a man that didn't like what I did. He only asked me out the show off to his exgirl who was getting married shortly after dumping my guy. I dumped him as soon as I realized why he'd asked me out and that wasn't long.

      Your hub is great you nail that guy on his head. I voted up and awesome.

      Absolutely men are more carefree and easy going then women... that is why we, as women, should bow down, and clean up!! Men should always go watch tv, because the woman will do the dishes! Men should change their clothes as many times as they want in a day, because the woman will wash them. Men should sit in a recliner and complain that they're hungry rather than making dinner, because the woman will cook... just as soon as she gets home from work, she will cook, clean, and do the laundry! Don't you men worry about a thing!
