No, really. Don’t do it.

It’s no secret men and women couldn’t be more different in the way they communicate. So whether you have a good thing goin’ or are single and ready to mingle, here are just a few things you should avoid saying to any woman.


Her: “Hey babe, what do you think of this outfit for my meeting tomorrow?”
You: “It looks fine.”
Her: *sigh, eye roll, returns to closet*

You’ve been here before. Needless to say, the word “fine” will never be an acceptable answer.

2.“Calm down”

Unless what you actually want is for her to spiral out of control, do not tell her to calm down. Don’t do it.

3.“Where do you want to eat?”

It is mind-blowing how many arguments have spurred from this simple question. Believe us, “hangry,” is a thing. So please just say where you want to eat.

4.“You look tired”

We get it, you’re simply making an observation. But how about observing how great her hair looks today versus those bags you’re noticing under her eyes.

5.“That tastes good, but you should try my mom’s recipe”

OK, so nothing beats your mom’s signature cheesy potatoes. What you don’t know, is that your girlfriend found the perfect Pinterest recipe that she couldn’t wait to whip up for you, so maybe grab a second helping and save the mom comparisons for another time.

6.Anything related to how she drives

So she has a lead foot and road rage. Don’t act like you haven’t exceeded the speed limit once or twice. And let’s face it… no one has patience during rush hour.

7.“You’re still hungry?”

Yes. Now move along, nothing to see here.

8.“You’re nothing like my ex”

Whether she’s better or worse (but hopefully better) your new girlfriend does not want to be compared to your last.


Congratulations. You just ended all conversation with this one letter.

10.“Do you need me to pick your fantasy football team?”

Yes, she watches football. No, she doesn’t need your picks. Now get a bet going and put some money in the pot.
