You remember the playground rhyme: “Sticks and stones may break my bones. But words can never hurt me!” Well, that is SO not true! Ladies – here are the five things you should never say to a man – unless you want to get on his nerves. This intelligence comes from MSN Lifestyle:
The first no-no: “That looks cute.” Men want to look handsome, great or stylish. They never want to look cute. That’s a word that should only be used for puppies, toddlers and Hello Kitty merchandise. Men are supposed to be your protector and your rock and the minute you say “cute,” they'll never wear that shirt or hat or whatever it is again.
Another thing no guy wants to hear: “We need to talk.” The instant you say that, their brain goes on the defensive and they'll do whatever they can to get away from you and the dreaded “conversation.” Bottom line: If you want to discuss a delicate topic, take them somewhere they feel comfortable. Like a sports bar. Then tell them how you feel. They won’t be happy to have “the talk” then either – but they'll be less likely to run.
Another no-no statement: “It’s just a game.” It’s never just a game. Sports are a major part of their lives and their team’s successes and failures affect their mood as much as anything else. Saying “it’s just a game” makes their passions seem trivial and unimportant and they’re not. At least, not to them.
Also, never say: “Nothing’s wrong.” If there was nothing wrong, your arms wouldn’t be crossed so tightly your head’s about to explode. Men are not mind-readers. They don’t know whether you’re upset because they left wet towels on the floor, or forgot your birthday. Tell them what’s going on and don’t make them guess – because they’ve got a pretty vivid imagination.
The final comment no man wants to hear: “Do you think she’s pretty?” If a beautiful woman walks by – or pops on the movie screen – the answer’s going to be “yes.” Just because we appreciate the scenery, doesn’t mean we think any less of you. So when an attractive woman rears her head – if you don’t want to know the answer, pretend you didn’t notice and we’ll do the same.
