There are a few things a woman just never wants to hear... Men, be careful. Don't say it unless you really mean it. Be careful not to hurt her, but at the same time, it is always best to be honest. Women, don't be so easily offended. The truth hurts. If a man is being honest, at least he's not lying to you. Think about what he's saying and search his words for some truth.

You're not wife material

It's one thing to wait for the ring, but you'll be waiting a long time if he ever says you're just not wife material! If a man expresses this to you or anyone else, you should probably end the relationship as soon as possible. If you want to get married and he wants to get married, but he just doesn't see you as the "marryin' type", don't continue to waste your time or his.

"I couldn't see you raising my kids"

If a man ever says, "I couldn't see you raising my kids" that is probably the most insulting thing you can say to a woman. Even a woman who doesn't want kids would be offended. Biologically speaking, having and raising kids is just as much a part of a woman's identity as working is a part of a man's. If a man ever says he doesn't think you're "mother material", you can't move forward if you both want kids. Let it go and move on.

Too much makeup

When it comes to women and makeup, women are basically big girls playing in their mother's makeup. It's fun! Women like to experiment with new eye shadows and new brands of products and new techniques. But most men actually prefer the au naturale look. As long as the makeup is done well, most men don't say anything about it. But when it's overdone, it becomes a problem. Continue to be who you are (don't change), but you might try to scale it back every now and then.

Bad weave

For the most part, men don't really comment on a woman's hair. So when a man comments on a woman's hair, it must be really bad! Most men are too polite to say this to your face, but if a man ever indicates that your weave looks terrible, fix the situation ASAP!

"You're just like your mother"

Women tend to have a very love-hate relationship with their mothers. The mother-daughter relationship is a very difficult and delicate one. And no matter how much a woman loves her mother, one of her worst fears is turning into her mother. If you ever tell a woman she's acting just like her mother you better mean it as a compliment, not an insult!
