Guys, we love you. You make our hearts swoon, you’re the fathers of our children, you are advisers, companions and friends, but there are certain gender-specific things you do that drive women nuts. For example, leaving the toilet seat up? We know this is a cliched male complaint, but seriously. It’s rude. Your momma raised you wrong if you find it hard to flush and lower before leaving the bathroom. With sweet smiles on our faces and love in our hearts, we present a list of habits, fashion decisions and other things you do that the world would (most likely) be better off without. We know the ladies at The Frisky agree with us on number one. Read their list of 19 other irksome male habits here.

  1. Scratching yourself in public.
  2. Whistling at us. This works for getting a dog’s attention, not a woman’s.
  3. Making dangerous gentleman’s wagers (this includes credit card roulette with our “joint” bank account and eating five pounds of steak to prove a point).
  4. Refusing to dance when sober… then refusing to leave the dance floor when drunk.
  5. Wearing any the following: cut-off jean shorts, socks with sandals, sandals with unkempt toenails, or Crocs.
  6. Shaving, waxing or plucking your uni-brow, back or shoulders and then telling us you didn’t. We can see the stubble, dude! Read Waxing Poetic About Waxing My Back
  7. Describing your bowel movements and/or trying to show us your efforts while they’re still in the toilet.
  8. Doing accents that aren’t spot-on.
  9. Referring proudly to any accomplishment you make in the virtual world, including the mention of Facebook friend totals.
  10. Thinking birth control is not your responsibility. Read 7 Ways Male Birth Control Will Change Everything
  11. Thinking that it’s not a meal if there’s no meat involved.
  12. Making bad household decisions, such as shoving sweaty socks under the couch, inviting the guys over to watch basketball without telling us and “pleaning” — cleaning something so poorly we’re prompted to say “Man, this was a piss-poor cleaning.”
