Mature women dating

Updated on July 9, 2013

Women are from Venus and Men are from Mars, they say.

No doubt that men sincerely love their women, they pamper us, do anything we say to make us happy and satisfied. But due to some unexplainable reasons we constantly do things that irritate men. Sometime we do them on purpose, other time unconsciously but the result is the same, we keep doing things that men can't stand in relationship. But no matter what habits we can't stand about each other, we still incredibly attracted to each other.

Below is a list of most common women's habits which drive men crazy.

9 Women's habits that men find irritating or just don't understand them

1 Obsessing over weight

Most women are obsessed over their body and waight. Because we want always be perfect for our men, so they admire us and pamper us. But men don't want to hear us complaining about a few extra ponds on hips or about our cellulite, it seems like we always critisize our body, which is so wrong.

If you don't like your own body then why would your your man like it, stop eating your heart out and irritate your man. If you hate something about your body then improve it, start running or join a fitness club.

2 Gossiping

Women can talk for hours, it's our inborn skill. Also we like gossiping about everything and everyone around us, I call this habit curiosity. Men hate when we discuss out private life and relationship issues with other people and they also hate to listen about other people's dirty details, men just don't get why we do it.

3 Nagging

This is one of the most irritating habits women do in a relationship. But knowing that men hear only 10% or even less of what we say, it's not wonder that we keep repeating the same things 500 times. We do realize that this is not good and can only worsen the situation, but we can't do anything about it, till our dear man prove that they listen to what we say.

4 The silent tactics

Women can both be over talkative or stay silent, but not in a good way. It's very easy to hurt our feelings and while some women can debate for hours, other women choose a silent tactics. We want a man to figure out himself what he did wrong and to start a conversation about it, then we will take out everything what's on our mind.

5 Shopping obsession

Women have a kind of obsession of shopping. It doesn't matter what to buy, if we have money we will definitely spend them on some goods. We always lack of something, a new dress or a lipstick or a 15 pair of shoes, it's a disease. When we see “sale” on the shop-window our brain blocks and we can only think about discount. Many men are irritated about women who can't save a penny.

6 Trying to change men

It's weird but women try to change men all the time. They want men to be more attentive, more romantic, more intelligent, to do things exactly the way they do. When men ask what they did wrong , the answer is” I do it another way”. Annoying right.

7 Clingy women

Some women can't live a second without her men. It's flattering but there should be a measure, enough is enough. She doesn't let him hang out with his friends without her, or to go to a gym or to play poker with guys, generally do anything without her. Such clinginess will drive any man crazy.

8 Commenting during the movie

Women can't watch a movie quietly, we are emotional creatures and have to comment everything around, we just can't keep everything to ourselves.

9 Pet names

Not all man like to be called a weird pet names which doubtly exist. These pet names may not be appreciated as you think especially when you call him with these pet names in public.

No one is perfect, rather then complain and irritate your significant other, it's better to find a compromise and to support each other no matter what, sense of humor can solve many problems, keep smiling and remain yourself.

If you single over 40 and willing to feel all advantages and pitfalls of love and relationship, browse online dating site for mature singles, find YOUR perfect match, like I found mine.

7 phrases that men find irritating

  1. Honey, I'm not ready yet, wait!

  2. I have absolutely nothing to wear!

  3. Who called you?

  4. Do you love me?

  5. Honey, we need to talk!

  6. Tell me, what are you thinking about?

  7. I was thinking - let's get married?

      Mature dating sounds challenging and often is true of the points made here.

      Awesome, pretty much right on the dot. However, we both are to blame for inconsistency and for using words in a manner that intrudes on each other. I can't just blame women for my inappropriate words that I have said. I do see that women realize how they can make a man uncomfortable, and men can do the same. Great article.

      This is funny...for two major reasons. There's a lot of truth to this, AND men have a lot of things that irritate women. Ah, but maybe you've already written that hub as well. LOL! Very entertaining, Amanda!

      Very good counsel. Pet names do not make me happy either. Seeing that there have been prior relationships, I like to hear my name to make sure that the focus is on me, because the same pet names could have been used for other people, I suppose. Selfish? Insecure? I don't know. I just love my own name and I wonder if a man does too.

      I agree both sexes how their own personal annoying habits. Talking does a lot to help the relationship become what you would like it to be. Very interesting hub.

      I think both sexes have their drawbacks, the main goal of any relationship is to learn to cope with them and to enjoy each other with all advantages and disadvantages!

      Another one that could be added is using sex as a "reward" or lack of sex as a punishment. Many women drop men down their "priority list" once he is (emotionally invested). I suspect this actually common for both sexes. We try harder to impress "the new" than we do "the tried and true". It's like completing the probation phase of a new job... people go into "relax mode". They put more effort into (getting) something than they do in (keeping) something.

      If the relationship ends they go back to doing everything they can to attract a (new) person. This may include doing things they had refused to do with their ex! Generally speaking the first 6 months of any relationship are the best.
