UGH! 10 Things Men Do That Drive Women Nuts
“Are you mad?”
Women understand that men ask this question as a preemptive attempt at avoiding a fight. They want to show that they care and that they pay attention to our reactions. But, men can become so obsessed with avoiding a fight, prying, “Are you mad? But seriously, are you mad? Hey, baby…are you mad?” that they actually cause a fight! Women need a moment to think about why they are mad, and find a way to phrase it. Of course the seconds right after we have a reaction are going to be emotional, and irrational. Most of the time, the fight wouldn’t have been that big of a deal if you’d just given us five minutes to listen to our own thoughts. But, instead, you push us until we explode.
