We all have many expectations from one another in every relationship of our life. Especially, with your spouse, your expectations tend to be much more as compared to those you have with others. As long as they are real and practical, they can still be fulfilled to keep your loved one happy. But, what if you feel that the expectations are getting way too demanding to even consider, let alone fulfilling them? Guys. We love you, but some of the expectations you have of us, girls, range from bluntly absurd to rather mean. Just like you, we’re face the same limitations that are posed on us by being human.
If you stop expecting these 11 things, our whole relationships may go onto the next quality level!
1. We cannot look hot without taking no time to get ready.
Do you realize that even those “effortless, I just got out of bed look” requires hours of careful preparation – blow dry, face tone, mascara, bronzer, etc. Don’t pace nervously around the room, sighing for the tenth time, looking at your watch and moaning: “Are you ready, yet?”. Most of us were not born so naturally good-looking as you are. So sit down and wait if you’d like us to look gorgeous as hell.
2. We can’t be skinny and curvy at the same time.
Yes, most of you want a girl with “that” perfect body type – slim, but not skinny; soft, but not fat. With curves in the right places and zero anywhere else. Sorry guys, but your ideal body expectations are surreal for 99% of female population. Appreciate the body we have and we will love you that much more.
3. We won’t stop dating other people unless we are official
Just too many guys these days falsely assume that while they are still playing the field, hooking up, and going on dates with other girls, we would show the outmoded notion of chivalry and sit at home, patiently waiting for your call. That will likely not gonna happen until we become official. Until you are clear about your expectations, we will continue keeping our options open!
4. We won’t stop being friends with our male buddies
Yes, we are together now and we may be in love, but that absolutely doesn’t mean we should banish our male friends. They have been around for decades before you, supporting and helping us expecting nothing in return! If you expect that now you will be the only man in our life, you are very wrong. Having male friends for a girl is all right and you should deal with it. Men are 50% of the population and some of them are friends with women.

5. We can’t read your mind
As a man, you are likely not used to spilling out all your feelings and troubles. We get that. You are not used to complaining. You don’t want to appear weak and so on. But if something really bothers you – we want to know! We can see you are being passive-aggressive so something must be wrong. Yet, in most cases we cannot read your mind and magically guess the reason. Instead of playing an evening game of charade with questions like: “Did something happen at work yesterday?”, “Did you fight with Joe?”, “Is your Mom feeling well”? and so on, just tell us what’s wrong! We’d really appreciate that.
6. We can’t call you less and more at the same time
Yes, you don’t like us to be that annoying gal who rings you up ten times a day and texts in between the calls. Sure, no man likes overwhelming attention. That makes you feel creepy. Yet, at the same time, if we do not call you often enough, you just assume we are not that into you. Work with us to find the fine line that is not too much, not too little, but just right.
7. We rarely make an exception in our rules for you
Most of us have these small rules when it comes to dating: “no kissing on the first date”, “the 5 date rule”, and so on. Those rules exist in a woman’s mind for a reason. We don’t want to feel cheap or used. We don’t want to get hurt or become too close before we get to know each other well enough. If you are, indeed, “worth it”, we’ll break the rules without any extra encouragement from your side.
8. We can’t be casual and emotional all at once
Guys, we sometimes don’t mind having just a casual physical connection and not being in a relationship. Yet, if you “don’t really look for a relationship right now,” then we don’t really look to deal with your emotional issues, go to brunch together or give an advice of what to say at a job interview. If this is “just sex,” just have sex with us, but don’t bring in your emotional baggage and false expectations in tow.
9. Talk to me about everything, but only what I like
We agree that discussing shopping or household chores, is not exactly what men want to talk about. In the same vein, talking just about sports, the latest gadgets in the market and discussing the horsepower of different vehicles, are not exactly topics most women have any interest in. Basically, men want to talk more about only what they want to talk about. They partially shut down their mind processors when their wives want to discuss something, that is or isn’t necessarily a girly topic.
