10 Things Women Do To Drive Men Away

Does it feel like your crush, boyfriend, or husband is pulling away from you?

Is he acting suspiciously and ignoring your calls or taking too long to respond?

It’s possible that you’re not doing anything wrong, but then again, you could be doing one of these 10 things women do that turn man away.

Nobody is perfect.

As women, we have a very high image to respect.

Men’s opinions of us are shaped from birth by the women in their lives (ie their mother) and this image is definitely a picture of perfection.

We will never live up to that image, but sometimes we do things that push you away without realizing it.

What are you doing that might be making your man want to walk out the door?

Here are some possibilities.

1. Accusations

Wrongly accusing a man is the quickest way to drive him away.

If you’re constantly asking who he’s been out with, where he’s been, or why he’s been twenty minutes late, then he’s going to run away.

Men need the confidence to feel secure in a relationship.

If you don’t trust him, he sees no reason to stay.

It works both ways.

If you know he’s been cheating on you (you caught him in bed with another woman, found messages on his phone) then there’s definitely a problem, otherwise it’s better to learn to trust before dating someone.

2. Annoying Him

Do you bother him?

Does he get the warning three times an hour to take out the trash, pick up his shoes, wash the dishes or anything else?

Annoying him is the equivalent of treating him like a child, and I can tell you that if you annoy him, you will lose him.


Most guys get things done, it just has to be done in their own time.

3. Comparing Yourself With their Ex

Another way women use to push men away is by comparing themselves to their ex.

If you are constantly asking him “Was she prettier than me?” or “Am I better in bed than she is?” then you will push it away.

Let me be frank with you.

She’s an ex, he doesn’t want to be reminded of her and he doesn’t want to compare the two of you.

Never mind.

4. Belittling Your Friends

Men are very protective of each other, and their friends are friends for life!

You might not like his friends (this is perfectly normal), you might not want him to be around his old college buddies (bad influences), but you have to keep your mouth shut about it.

Unless he hangs out with his friends twenty-four hours a day and gets into his awful habits (unemployment, couch surfing, etc.), you don’t have much of what you’re afraid of.

Guys are guys and sometimes they just need to hang out with their pals.

Speaking ill of friends will drive a man away.

Your friends are like your family.

5. Disrespecting Your Family

This brings me to another point.

Men are extremely protective of their family (especially those who come from cultures that revolve around the family).

If you speak ill of his family, disrespect his family, or are rude to someone in the family (no matter how much they deserve it), you will drive him away.

Always be polite to his relatives.

6. Spinning Your Life Around them

Men are terrified if you turn your life around them.

Seriously, they hate it.

It makes them feel suffocated.

Firstly, he doesn’t want to be the center of all your waking moments (this takes away his own personal time) and secondly, making him the center of your life just shows him that you’re not safe enough. to live without it.

It’s scary.

Take your own life, he’ll like it.

7. Always Taking Control

Do you always have to be responsible?

Is your man left in the background while you plan your day, your week, your life?

Don’t be that woman.

I don’t care how Beta your man is, he still needs to be in charge every now and then to make him feel like a man.

If you always take charge, you’ll push it away,

8. You’ve Overcome The Emotional

At best, men aren’t very good with emotional women.

If you get too emotional about every little thing, he’ll want to run away.

Too far away.

You can’t cry every time you burn your dinner, you can’t lose your temper whenever you get stuck in traffic, and you can’t worry about it constantly during the day.

Stop getting emotional, he doesn’t know how to deal with it.

9. Disrespecting Him

If you are constantly disrespecting or belittling your man, you are pushing him away.

Nobody likes to feel degraded and nobody wants to feel like their lover despises them.

If you’re always telling him he’s worthless, believe me when I say he’ll walk away and find someone who really thinks he’s worth something.

10. Pushing Him Into Marriage

The biggest thing women do to push men away is try to push them into marriage.

Believe me, if he is ready for marriage, he will propose to you.

Don’t blame him for asking the big question, and don’t think for a moment that because you’re ready for marital bliss, he should be too.

Men know what they want and who they want, and they don’t settle for anything less.

Don’t push him into marriage, you will lose him.

It’s not always easy to know what’s going on in your guy’s mind, but it’s always a good idea to step back for a moment and think about how you’re treating him.

Always remember the golden rule: treat him as you would like to be treated.
