I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: communication can be hard sometimes, especially when you’re in a relationship. It can be difficult to figure out exactly how to talk to your boyfriend all the time, even more so when you get super comfortable with him and feel like you can say anything. News flash: you can’t. There are some things you should never say to your boyfriend. Like, ever.
In an effort to stop a potential fight or, worse, a potential breakup, I’ve put together a list of 10 things not to say to your boyfriend. I mean, unless you want him to get super annoyed with you. Then you can say these things. But if you’re trying to have a happy relationship, avoid these 10 statements altogether. Trust me, girl.
“If you loved me, you would know.”
Forcing him to prove his love for you by testing him on what your favorite color is? Bad idea. Don’t play games like this with a dude you’re dating.
You’re not fine. We all know you’re not fine. Like I said – don’t play games. If something is bothering you, talk about it instead of waiting for him to figure out because, news flash, he probably won’t.
“Your penis is small anyway.”
I don’t care if you’re joking, I don’t care if you two are fighting – unless you want to be responsible for making your BF completely self-conscious, don’t say this. How would you like it if he said “You’re fat, whatever.” Right, that’s what I thought.
“Do you think that girl is pretty?”
If you don’t really want to know the truth, then YOU ARE SETTING HIM UP FOR FAILURE. This is just cruel and a little manipulative. And it will confuse the heck out of your boyfriend.
“What’s wrong? Are you sure? Tell me what’s wrong.”
You can ask him what’s wrong once – but don’t bug him until you think he’ll cave. Dudes like space when they’re bummed out or angry. When he wants to talk, he’ll talk. But he’ll never talk if you continue to nag, I promise.
“I hate your friends.”
There’s being honest and then there’s just being mean. And insensitive. Don’t rip on his boys unless you have a legit reason, kay ladies?
“When we’re married…”
If you guys have been dating for, like, four months and talk about the future hasn’t really happened, just… don’t. He’ll most likely run away scared no matter how much he digs you.
“My ex used to do the same thing!”
Oh, cool. We all love being compared to the person who you’re no longer with for various reasons. Super fun.
“Do I look fat in this?”
Might be a guy’s least favorite question in the history of questions. Girl, you don’t look fat. Cut it out.
“Who just texted you?”
He’s allowed to get text messages without you looking over his shoulder to see who they’re from. Sorry, had to say it.
Do you ever or have you ever said these things to your boyfriend? Do you agree or disagree with these? What did I miss? Tell me in the comments!
