You rarely call him by his real name

After dating for a couple weeks, you’ve completely almost forgotten what his real name is. Instead, you’ve switched to calling him “baby,” “babe,” “boo,” and every other pet name under the sun. Pet names are cute when they’re used in moderation but when you’re calling him your boo when you’ve only been dating him for a few weeks, now is a good time to apply the brakes.

    I only reached page 5 but these seem more like codependent traits than anything.

    The girl in the pic looks like a xhubby Rhianna

    Two words I wish would stop being used as slang, ‘thirst’ and ‘ratchet’.

    A third of these things on this list is what a woman is supposed to do…cook, going out your way for him, open communication? wth?

    • Kahekili

      No woman is ‘supposed’ to cook or go out of her way for a man.

      girl wives are SUPPORTED to cook. Girlfriends are supposed to make sure she eats and if he happens to be around while you’re eating there’s no harm in making him a turkey sandwich too.

      • Kahekili

        ‘girl wives’? Are there boy wives out there somewhere?

        If the girlfriend is eating, you think she should stop to make her boyfriend a sandwich?

    I went out on a date with a guy who was kind of like this. Every single thing I did he felt like he had to help me. He got out of his car and walked up on my porch when I was coming out of the house to walk me down the stairs, every single time I wanted to get out of my chair he was standing next to me with his hand out to help me out of it. I’m like dude, I’m not 85. I can make it, I promise.

    • NO-EL

      Where is he. That’s the type of gentleman I would like in my life.

      • NVAdamzz

        He’s here in Michigan. I’ll give you his number! Lolz!! I mean it’s one thing to be a gentleman. Doing things like holding the door open for me or things of that nature, that’s cool. However, I feel like he was trying too hard. Why would I need your hand for me to get out of a chair each and every single time I get up? I like a more laid back person I guess.

    • Kahekili

      That would get annoying fast. It’s one thing to be courteous, but another to treat someone like they are handicapped.

      • Babydoll 70

        I think it’s classy for a man to actually act like a gentlemen. I’d rather have that then have someone let the door slam in my face.

        • Kahekili

          That’s fine. I personally don’t care for all of that.

          • NVAdamzz

            Right, me either. The guy that I’m seeing is a gentleman but he doesn’t smother me the way the other guy did.

        • NVAdamzz

          I agree with @MorningRain:disqus. Just because I don’t like for someone to treat me like I’m decrepit doesn’t mean that I want or would allow them to be rude to me either. Be courteous, be polite, but give me my space too. There’s a balance and he just didn’t have it.

      That’s called being a gentlemen. It’s what men are supposed to do and it has nothing to do with an age.

      • NVAdamzz

        I agree that men are supposed to be gentlemen. In my opinion, he was just trying way too hard and what he was doing just was unnecessary for my personal taste.. I guess we just have different opinions of what a gentleman is.

    girlfriend does most of the stuff here, its annoying

  • E.C. from D.C.

    The overbearing one is not the girlfriend then (me lol)….it’s the boyfriend.

  • Thatgirl2013

    I actually like this list and agree with a great majority of it. Girlfriends act too much like wives these days. The thirst is real!

    Its called being d*ckmatized.

  • Ms. Kameria

    Some of these points aren’t “overbearing”, they’re just stupid and senseless.
