7 Things You Never Owe a Man ...


No matter how long you've been dating your boyfriend, there are things you never owe a man.

Don't let him convince you that you're required to treat him a certain way when you're not.

Being nice is a choice, not an obligation.

Here are some things you never owe a man and should never feel bad about refusing to do:

1. Sex

It doesn't matter if he paid for your dinner.

It doesn't matter if he treats you like a princess.

It doesn't matter if you've been married to him for ten years.

Sex is one of the things you never owe a man.2

Whether or not you want to have intercourse is all up to you.

Don't get guilted into doing it, because you have no reason to feel bad for saying no.

2. An Explanation

When you turn down a "nice guy," everyone will be asking you why you would do such a thing.

However, you don't need to explain yourself to him or anyone else.

If you're not interested, you're not interested.

It's hard to explain that you just don't feel a spark, so don't waste your breath.

It's none of their business, anyway.

3. An Apology

You should only distribute apologies when they're genuine.2

Don't spit out sorries, just because you feel like it's the right thing to do.

Never apologize for standing up for yourself or for being a strong woman.

Other people might not be used to your personality, but they'll have to learn to deal with it.

4. Food

Even if you decide to marry a man, you aren't required to cook and clean for him.

Yes, it's always nice to take care of your true love, but you should be doing it because you want to, not because you feel like it's a requirement.

Your man is a big boy.

He can make his own meal if you're not in the mood to cook.
