10 Things You Should Never, Ever Say to a Woman
By Sanjiv Bhattacharya
There are few guarantees in life, but this much we can say with certainty: The sun rises in the east, death comes to us all, and you will -- at one time or another -- suddenly find yourself in the midst of a blazing fight with your girlfriend without even realizing it.
Many of us have been there. One minute you’re having a conversation, maybe a minor argument, but that’s OK; it’s all under control. Then you say something -- a word or passing comment, something relatively harmless, or so you think -- and it sets her off. As soon as it leaves your lips, the air changes, and there’s no easy way back.
There are some things men should never say to their women -- conversational land mines that appear insignificant on the face of it, but are anything but. The good news is that we know, for the most part, what they are. Many men have suffered before you. It would be wise to heed their counsel.
1. “Are you really going to eat all that?”
3. “My ex used to … ”
4. “You always do that.”
5. “You sound just like your mother.”
6. “Yeah, she’s hot.”
7. “What’s up with your hair?”
9. “Is this your time of the month?”
10. “I love you.”
