Fellas, have you ever been with someone whom you ended up revealing something that shouldn’t have been said, or made a commitment you shouldn’t have made? These can put a really big damper on your relationship. If you have, take a gander and see if the slip up you made is here, and learn tips on avoiding a different one. If not, why not read on and figure out what things guys end up regretting saying or doing in a relationship, so you can avoid falling victim and keep you and your special lady on the right path together.
Has your gal ever asked you to go to the OBGYN with her? If you two are expecting, congratulations! You should definitely be a part of every phase. But if she’s only having a checkup, don’t go with her. It’s emasculating. Your guy friends will call you whipped. Why does she want you there anyway? What’s the point? Is it some sort of revenge for not having to go? Another problem is that if you hear and see your women’s special place stripped down to biological and medical terms, it may lose some of its mystery and appeal. Put this issue in its place. Otherwise, she may ask you to do all kinds of things you shouldn’t. Establish borders and she will respect you. If not, she’ll walk all over you.
Don’t take her to guys’ night out. It’s no longer a male bonding experience if your girlfriend or wife comes along. It undermines the entire point. You will definitely be called whipped. You and your friends won’t be able to completely be yourselves around her. In every relationship each person needs time apart to explore their own dreams, hobbies, interests and to be with their friends. And why does she want to come along? Is she the hyper jealous type? Is she too needy or clingy? The fact that she wants to tag along may be a red flag. Talk with her more and explore further. Don’t attend girl’s night with her either. This is female bonding. She needs to be the star, sip wine with her friends and gab. And they won’t feel comfortable with you around either. How can female bonding truly take place with a guy around?
Don’t pressure her into certain sex acts if you two are physical and don’t have her pressure you into any. Otherwise someone will feel resentment, guilt or regret. Instead, talk about and take baby steps up to it. Make sure each person is comfortable. And don’t do it if both of you aren’t 100% sure. By avoiding these common pitfalls you’ll be able to move forward confidently in your relationship and be able to establish healthy borders.
