Men, more than women, are creatures that value their pride. Because of that, a seemingly simple comment from a girlfriend can hurt a guy’s ego so much that it’s nearly impossible for him to bounce back. With that, here’s a list of “9 things women say that can really hurt a man’s pride,” according to male survey data.
1. “So you only make $xx a month?”
“Sorry I don’t make much, OK?! Please don’t bring up my salary…” Even if he’s satisfied with the amount he makes, a dismissive comment from his girlfriend can attack a guy’s sense of self-worth. If a woman makes a higher salary than her boyfriend, she should consider the topic of salary taboo in future conversations.
