6 Annoying Girlfriend Traits

Annoying girlfriend traits

I’ve been in enough relationships over the years to figure out which habits women have that will eventually begin to annoy the hell out of me, hence the term annoying girlfriend traits.

Considering we often spend the first few months of dating masking our real opinions about each other and the things we don’t love so much, the bothersome little annoying girlfriend traits sometimes morph into huge, pink elephants that make me want to walk away from the whole relationship.

So in order to help you figure out what these “annoying girlfriend traits” are, I’ve compiled a list of things that most women do in relationships that drive most men crazy.

Hopefully, rather than get angry with me and send me tons of hate mail, you will take the time to reflect upon and try to understand the male point of view and let go of these annoying girlfriend traits once and for all.

Annoying girlfriend traits #1

Punctuality issues

Why is it that most women I’ve dated had a problem with punctuality? Whether it was going out to a movie or preparing for a formal dinner, there I was, sitting in her living for about 45 minutes longer than I should have.

Of course, when she finally enters the room looking gorgeous, all that time spent flipping through channels is long forgotten, but after awhile, waiting around for a woman, no matter how hot, gets old.

Of course, I tried to compromise by lying about the time that we had to be somewhere, but they all still managed to disappoint me. I place a tremendous amount of value on my time, and when I spend a lot of our relationship waiting around for you, it will come to a point where I won’t even bother showing up.

Annoying girlfriend traits #2


It only dawned on me after my fifth relationship that when a woman asks a man to do something, she means ASAP, not tomorrow, not next week, right freakin’ now.

That’s not the way most guys work. First off, no one likes to be told what to do. Second, if we agree to do it, leave us alone. Give me some time to do it. I remember one girlfriend asked me to do something, and I said ok. After about 20 minutes (it wasn’t a time-sensitive task), she burst into the room again yelling about how lazy and unreliable I was. Huh?!?!?

You are not our mothers, nor do we want you to be. The moment you begin to nag us or complain about us, you take on the parent role and we take on the child role. No sexual relationship should work that way.

Annoying girlfriend traits #3

Irrational jealousy

It’s one thing to let me know that you get a little miffed about my checking out other girls, it’s a whole other ball game when you react irrationally or attack me for something I haven’t done.

A little jealousy is cute when you catch me checking out another woman and ask what I thought of her behind, but when you start interrogating me about whether or not I’d sleep with her, that’s when we get into “Crazy Woman” territory, and I’m not interested in that vicinity.

You’re beautiful and that’s why I’m with you, but if I spot a beautiful woman and look at her, it doesn’t mean I’m going to approach her or sleep with her, so get a grip. A casual glance is just that.

    These are spot on, I can’t tell you how many women I know who do these stupid things and then wonder why they got dumped. Kudos.

    Women are 90% like that. They should read your article and I believe they should do something about it bigtime.

    About number four…

    If a woman tells you that she wants to talk, it’s probabaly important. We understand that you enjoy “me time” (who doesn’t?) but we waited until you were doing something recreational– like flipping through a magazine or watching a re-run on tv– so the least you could do is listen.

    The rest are pretty spot on though. Good job :)

    This is sad but true. Us girls can be annoying in the same ways over and over again!

    To me the most annoying trait is not even on this list. My girlfriend calls me when I am in class, working at my job, or on the highway and expects me to answer her right away. If I don’t, she keeps redialing until I pick up. She even knows I am busy but doesn’t care. However this only applies to me and not to her. Can you sense the double standard here??? *mad*

  • Desh Boparai

    Another annoying girlfriend trait. When she scratches your arm or pokes your belly thinking its funny.

  • Emily.

    I don’t get how someone’s gender dictates how they act?

  • Jason

    It’s not based on gender, it’s just things that usually only girlfriend’s do. If one of the annoying girlfriend traits was “never takes out the trash” you wouldn’t expect it to be a girl would you?
