7 Things That Push Guys Away ...

Throughout my admittedly extensive dating history, I've made some big mistakes and done a lot of things that push guys away.2

At the time I didn't realize it, of course, but looking back, I see that I was definitely keeping my now-exes at a distance by doing little things that are major dating faux-pas.

Luckily, I learned from my mistakes and am hoping you might, too!

Here are 7 things that push guys away.

Some I've done, some I've just seen, but all are bad news for your relationship!

1. Jealousy

This is a big one!

Of all the things that push guys away, jealousy might just be the biggest no-no.2

Hating on his female friends or casting dirty looks in the direction of the hot-but-innocent waitress will make you look totally insecure.

Remember, he's with you for a reason, and he's leaving with you on his arm, not her.

If you think you have valid reasons for feeling threatened, or if a girl's behaviour towards him (like blatant flirting) is out of line, chill out until you can get him alone, and have a heart-to-heart.

Explain your feelings in a calm, rational way and let him know that although you totally trust him, you're feeling a little bit doubtful about a certain girl or situation.

But never, ever demand that he stop hanging out with his female friends or show anger or envious behaviour towards another girl.

Trash-talking or hating on other chicks is not cool, and guys can't stand it, so just know that you've got this and be your fabulous self.

@Naomi Nelson, thanks very much! That's what I was going for!

I did every dumb thing ever. And that's why I'm single ha.

I agree with all of the above, but I think the paragraph at the beginning of the list is the most resounding . Just be yourself and be comfortable in your own skin. If he's worth it then he'll stick around.

When you like someone it's hard to detach yourself and not do all of this stupid stuff...but I love this article. Needed those words of wisdom🙋

Yeyy, I'm way too detached from the guys I've been with, that's probably why they keep coming, which is not good either… Actually IDK why I'm writing this, when should be studying xD

You don't have to worry about talking too much if you find a chatterbox like my fiancé! Sometimes I have to tell him to not say anything for a couple of mins lol! But I have to admit.. It did feel a little overwhelming at first.
