I will start this post out by saying that you should never change yourself for a guy. They AREN’T worth it. You should feel free to do you and if a guy doesn’t like that, then it’s his loss. But, sometimes, girls do things that they think their guy will like, even though they really don’t. A lot of girls tend to think guys want certain things, so they do them in order to “impress” them. And, even though it might work sometimes, a lot of the times guys just want you to be you, and not pretend to be something you’re not.
Sometimes, movies and TV shows portray romantic relationships in a very weird way. They show women as helpless and clingy people who NEED men to complete them. I know it seems silly, but little girls might be watching these movies thinking that this is what guys REALLY want. And, according to an AskMen Reddit thread, this is NOT what guys really want. So, if you think you know what guys want, check out these “romantic” things guys don’t really like, and see if you’re right.
Pretending To Be HelplessShahkabra said, "Pretend to be helpless and baby-like." Okay, I don't think ANYBODY likes these weird baby voices. But for some reason, some people do that to be "attractive." You don't have to be seen as "weak" just because you're a woman. You're strong AF and it's okay for people to see that, even guys.

Oversharing With OthersAwkwardnubbings said," I dated someone who was more interested in sharing with others that we were in a relationship than actually being present in the relationship. Like an over exaggeration of our romance. Selfies galore, it was exhausting." You might think your guy will appreciate all of the photos, but he might not. It's okay to want to document your relationship, but don't forget to actually pay attention to your bae. Image Source: iStock
Sending Too Many TextsHandshakeofCO said, "Send me endless emoji texts when I'm working. Like, I get it, you're into me. But please stop making me break my flow, and let me do my fucking job. Bonus when they get pissed after you don't immediately reply." It's totally cool to text your bae! But texting them all the time might interfere with their lives. Image Source: iStock
Playing Mind GamesGuyBanniester1 said, "Playing games. Most mature dudes don't want to chase someone around. Talking to women, they think this is normal dating. It's not, it's a waste of time." Honestly, "relationship games" are exhausting for everyone involved. It's easier to just be honest and communicate than to keep your partner guessing. Image Source: iStock
Acting Stupidquinten500000000 said, "Act stupid to get guys to help her. I've seen straight A students act like they don't understand a concept that they obviously understand so that they can give gad complex C students some rush of white knight pleasure." NEVER act dumb for a boy. You are smart AF and everyone deserves to know that! Image Source: iStock
Stealing ClothesOakenPRettyBoy8 said, "How about,stealing all your clothes and wearing them whenever. Like,it can be cute and all but don't just take what you want! Give me a heads up or let me give it to you. 3 gym shorts and 2 hoodies later." OKAY, wearing your BF's clothes is fun and cute, just be sure to give it back if they ask for it. Image Source: iStock
Calling Them...DaddyIjustateaburger said, "Don't call me Daddy. Ever." Okay, I don't mean to kinkshame here, but this is getting a little out of hand. Calling your BF "daddy" can add a weird power dynamic to your relationship. Just...try not to do it? Image Source: iStock
