It’s easy to get caught up in a relationship, but it’s important to remember that the people around you aren’t as invested in your relationship as you. They love you and care about you, but they don’t care so much about the details of your personal life. Here are four annoying habits your friends might notice, but not have the heart to tell you about.
1. You complain about him all the time
Constantly complaining about your boyfriend signals a problem and it doesn’t necessarily mean that he is the problem. If you decide to take your complaints to social media, you are taking your private problems into a public forum. This is not only bad for your relationship, but other people will find your posts annoying. Other people don’t want to hear your constant complaints about your boyfriend.
2. You gush about him all the time
Constantly gushing about your boyfriend can be as annoying as complaining about him all the time. It’s great to have a boyfriend who is kind and generous, but bragging about it daily will start to wear on people. Have other things to talk about besides your sweet boyfriend making you a sandwich or changing the oil in your car.
3. You cater to your boyfriend
It’s nice that you want to do things for your boyfriend, but ignoring your own life to make sure he’s content can actually be annoying to the other people around you. If a friend asks you out, but you’d rather sit and wait for your boyfriend, you are putting him ahead of yourself. Most women realize they are not the answer to their boyfriend’s happiness. Sitting around and waiting for him to return, cleaning up for him and acting like the doting girlfriend is going to get on your friends’ nerves.
4. You think your boyfriend’s word is gospel
It annoys your friends when you go to them for advice and don’t listen to what they say. When your boyfriend gives you the exact same advice and you act like it’s the wisest thing you’ve ever heard, it becomes even more irritating to your friends. It’s not only annoying to the people around you, but offensive as well. If the only opinion that matters is what the man in your life gives, it’s better to just ask him and not waste your friends’ time. This annoying habit may result in you losing friends.
Having a boyfriend can cause some women to act in a way they normally wouldn’t. These habits can drive the people around you crazy and want to spend less time with you. If you notice any of the annoying habits in yourself, it’s time to change them.
