16 Things Girlfriends Say & Do That Annoy Their Boyfriends

There are certain phrases or things that girlfriends might unintentionally (or intentionally) say that can trigger frustration or irritation in their boyfriends. These instances often stem from differences in communication styles and perspectives. For instance, when comments come across as nagging or critical, they can lead to misunderstandings and tension. Additionally, making assumptions about what their partner thinks or feels without direct communication can lead to frustration. 

Questions During Movies

To start, a user shared, “During the first three minutes of a movie, a new character comes on-screen. “Who’s that?” 

When Getting Comfy

A second user added, “I’ll sit on the couch, put my feet up, get comfortable. She’ll come in, sit down next to me, and then ask me, “Can you get my X?” where X is anything she could have gotten on the way to the couch.”

Asking Loaded Questions

This user commented, “Asking loaded questions like, “Which one of my friends would you want a 3-way with?” Yeah, I thought we were prepping a three-way. It turns out she was running out of ammunition for my demise.”

Angered About The Past

A highly-liked comment was, “Gets historical when angry. Not hysterical but historical. Brings up everything that you’ve ever done wrong. Having apologized for something in the past doesn’t count anymore.”

Won’t Text Back

One user commented, “Not being direct with me. If you’re pissed, and I don’t know why I’ll never figure it out. For the love of god, just tell me what’s going on…”

Falling Back To Sleep

A person commented, “My girlfriend will text me in the morning and say “Hey, what’s up?” When I respond and say something like, “Not much, how about you?” she’ll say, “Sleeping,” and proceed to fall back asleep for another 2 hours. Really grinds my Gears.”

Being Alone

A popular comment was, “She just doesn’t understand that sometimes I just want to be alone or not spend the night at her place. She gets upset and threatens to break up with me when I say I just want a night at my place alone.”

Unanswerable Questions

One poster said, “Questions like: “If you could change one thing about me, what would you change?” I could make you stop asking me dumb unanswerable questions.”

This user replied, “Her indecisiveness when it comes to food. I will literally eat anything at any time. I have no reservation about steak or pizza for breakfast. She, on the other hand, gets angry if I have anything other than “breakfast” food for breakfast and so on. She’s always like what do you want to eat? I’ll respond with 40 different places, and she’ll say no to all of them, then get upset when I’m like, I’ll just have cereal.”

Irrational Anger

A person said, “Doesn’t like that she’s overweight, asks me to help her lose weight, then gets angry when I tell her not to eat McDonald’s or candy.”

Bad Jokes

This user added, “My girlfriend thinks she’s really funny when she jokes about me ‘beating her’ in public (I have never even raised my voice at her–we have a good relationship) I keep telling her that someone is actually going to take her seriously and I’m going to get arrested or something. She insists that everybody will understand it’s a joke.”

Paranoid Of Other Women

An insightful comment was, “Being paranoid constantly about any non-related woman. I had so many friends that were girls. I understand the worry over exes, but if I’ve been best friends with someone for over 5 years, I don’t think they want me that way.”.

Losing Things

This poster recalled, “It’s small, and she never does it on purpose, but my girlfriend always loses the twisty ties for loaves of bread after the first time she uses it. Never in the garbage, floor, under the microwave, etc….. just gone. It seems like nothing, but it always happens, and I can’t stand it.”

Finally, a commenter said, “I can’t stand it when I come home, and she’s sitting on the couch, or in bed, and she’s playing candy crush. She’s probably been playing for an hour. I sit at the computer, and it’s “Oh, you’re not gonna sit/lay here with me?”
