10 Annoying Things Guys Do That Drive ALL Girls Crazy

10 Annoying Things Guys Do That Drive ALL Girls Crazy

We can't live with 'em, but we can't live without 'em!

We all have guys in our lives; whether they're friends, family or significant others. They impact our lives on a daily basis. They make us happy. They make us sad. They annoy us. They make us angry. They make us feel special and make us feel like we need to improve ourselves. But, overall, the thing that sticks with us about guys is the annoying little things they do.

Here’s a list of some annoying things guys do, so you know you’re not the only one thinking these things are annoying.

1. You send them a text and they don’t text you back.

I can understand if they’re busy, they can text you back later. But, we all know the guy that won’t text you back. Right in the middle of a conversation, you send a question and BAM! They quit responding. Nothing is more annoying than being in the middle of a conversation and then the conversation being killed.

2. They stand you up.

This doesn’t always mean you were at the place waiting for them and they just didn’t show up. Being stood up could mean you had plans and for some stupid reason they just bail out. This is annoying because you plan out this time to hang out with this young man, and then you end up spending the evening on the couch.

3. Give stupid reasons why you can’t hang out

“I have to work in the morning,” “ I was out late last night,” “I’m tired” All of these quotes are reasons why guys say they can’t hang out with you. So girls reluctantly try, try and try again, to plan an evening out with a guy they know. Stupid reasons are also sometimes a way they can get away without saying what they really want to say. Instead, just be completely honest, girls would take it better if you were.

4. Act like a lady, But know like a guy

This is one of the most annoying things about guys sometimes. They want you to look and act like a lady, but yet they also want you to know everything a guy knows. They want you to know how to fix a truck or all the different types of fish you can catch. They want you to dress in a nice dress, yet yell at you for wearing a dress when you’re going fishing. They want the best of both worlds and you never know what world they want you in.

5. They talk about trucks ALL the time

Yes, girls sometimes enjoy talking about trucks, and the latest truck you say, the modifications to do to the trucks, how to fix the trucks and anything else. Talking about trucks is a good thing for a short time, but if it’s constant it gets annoying.

6. When they flirt with a lot of girls

When guys flirt with a lot of girls, It’s annoying because you can’t tell if they actually are into you or just being nice. This makes it a problem because if you read the situation wrong you will get hurt. When guys flirt with a lot of girls sometimes you get attached and then you scar yourself when that guy is jumping from girl to girl. It’s OK to flirt with a lot of girls just make sure it’s flirting with a friend not a future significant other.

7. When they think you can’t do what you can cause “you're a girl”

When guys act like girls can’t do something because they’re not a guy or they aren’t strong enough or they don’t know enough, it’s annoying. Yes, I am a girl, yes I can carry my own feedback. I can change my own oil, just because I’m a girl doesn’t mean I can’t do all the things you do!

8. When you’re only texting friends

This doesn’t happen all too often, but it’s super annoying when guys only want to text you. They seem like your best friend over text but as soon as you ask to hang out, they always have an excuse. You could be at the same event with him, walk right by him and he pretends not to know you. He will immediately text you with some lame excuse as to why he didn’t say hi or why you guys didn’t hang out.

9. When they think dipping, smoking, vaping and drinking are cool

Smoking, dipping, vaping and drinking are bearable, they aren’t good for you but we (as women) can deal with them. Everyone has their own bad habits, but what is annoying is when guys act like it’s cool. Girls don’t find smoking, drinking, vaping and dipping cool. Guys, you don't need to “show off” with these habits, you can do them without making a big deal about them.

10. When they think they know everything

When guys act like they know everything sometimes it's attractive, cute and sweet; but other times, it’s just plain annoying. When a girl begins talking about something and a guy chimes in to correct her or add more, it gets annoying. It’s OK to let your girl know more about a topic than you.

Both guys and girls do things to annoy each other, but in the end, this list is a few things that guys do that OVERLY annoy woman. Men are a joy in our lives, and we wouldn’t be able to live without them. The annoying things that men do, just add a layer of interest to our lives.

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend's Mom

A simple thank you is not enough.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.

I’d Much Rather Celebrate Valentine’s Day With My Single Girlfriends Than Any Guy

Bring on the pizza and ice cream because Valentine's Day is Girls Only this year.


Being single during any time of the year is difficult, but it can be even harder with Valentine's Day quickly approaching. People either love it or love to hate it. It's a day filled with dramatic romantic gestures, carefully planned dates, and an abundance of roses and chocolates. Well, at least for some it is. The pressure to have a "Valentine" as well as have the perfect evening is so high that in my option it completely takes the fun out of the day. So this Valentine's Day, I won't be stressing over the perfect outfit, restaurant or date. Instead, I'll be deciding if I should have another slice of pizza while my girlfriends try to figure out which cheesy rom-com we should watch next.

I don't hate Valentine's Day, I actually think it's really romantic. I think it's great that some people find happiness in grand gestures and extravagant presents. When I feel about someone strongly enough, I'm sure I'd do the same, but as of right now I don't. I don't want to be someone valentine or worry about finding the perfect gift. I want to focus on myself and just have a fun night with my girls. We worry so much about what everyone has to say about the things we do that often times we don't make any decisions for ourselves. Be a little selfish and do only what you want. Order too much food, break out the wine, and enjoy a stress-free night with the people that mean the most to you.

You will find me on the couch with my sorority sisters most likely catching up on "The Bachelor" or ruining our diets with dollar store sweets. And yes, I know there's an unofficial holiday already called, "Galentine's Day" (which I will be celebrating too) that's for ladies celebrating ladies. Who says you can't do it two nights in a row? Who says that Valentine's Day has to be a day spent with a romantic partner?

This is me telling you to take this day to have some fun and ignore the pressures society (and ourselves) put on ourselves constantly. Surround yourself with the people who support you; the ones who stick around through it all and love you unconditionally. If you still want to stay in the festive mood, you can exchange valentines with your friends and treat each other with chocolate hearts. And if you want to celebrate Valentine's Day with your significant other, go ahead, I'm not stopping you.

So, no matter what Valentine's Day for you is, celebrate it however you want. Dress up to the nines and have the night of your life. Stay in, order takeout, and fall asleep watching a movie. Hang out with your girlfriends, guy friends, or both! It doesn't matter how you do Valentine's Day, but rather who you spend it with.
