There are just some things that you should never, ever say to a woman. Lyndsay Rush from SheKnows put together a list of phrases guys should just stop saying, and we decided to rank them on our show.
5) Movie quotes
This doesn't apply when talking to all women, but save the obscure movie quotes for your buddies.
4) "Bros before hoes"
We're not exactly sure why you'd say this to your lady…you also shouldn't use similar things like bruh, brah, broham, etc.
3) Internet slang
Say things like amazeballs, awesome sauce, YOLO and we won't blame your woman for saying "BYE BYE."
2) "You look tired."
People tell Sheri this all the time. No, she doesn't want to hear it!
1) "Calm down."
Say this and a woman is guaranteed to do the exact opposite.
We also asked listeners in the chatroom to add to this list and tell us what else men should stop saying. Here's some of the phrases they came up with:
- "What have you done all day?"
- "You think too much."
- "You sound like your mother.”
- "Are you getting your period?" (In reference to a woman getting upset)
Also, don't tell a woman she can't do something. She'll prove you wrong every time.
*Don't ask women about their pimples, scars, etc.
*Heck, just keep your rude comments about a woman's appearance to yourself! One of our listeners said her husband asked, "When's the last time you had your chin waxed?"
*And for the love of all that is holy, don't you dare tell a woman that she's fat! Another listener said she's been told, "You have such a pretty face, you just need to lose a few pounds."
