I’m sure there have been times when you felt unappreciated over the course of your long-term relationship. But if you confront your boyfriend about it, he might stop wanting to say “Thank you” at all. This time, we surveyed guys to bring you nine patronizing things girlfriends say that guys find irritating.
1. You say really condescending things, like “You should be thankful I’m with you”
“I know I asked her out, but she doesn’t have to put it that way!” Your boyfriend will be hurt when you say things that he can interpret as you saying, “I’m dating you to do you a favor.” Whatever your true intention is, it’s best for both of you for you to avoid acting arrogant.
