Have men you just met called you “baby” or “sweetheart”? A woman finds this behavior annoying. Using pet names without knowing your name is cringeworthy and disingenuous. 

Anger Management 

Have you ever been called “cute when you’re mad” ladies? This seemingly innocuous comment frustrates a commenter. It minimizes and devalues your rage. T

Respect Her Knowledge 

Men are known to be dismissive to women about “masculine” topics. One lady said a male coworker asked her about soccer after she displayed interest.

Avoid Childish Behavior

Double Standard 

If you raise an eyebrow, guys may tell you to “calm down.” For calm women, it can be frustrating and make them feel unimportant.

Invalidating Feelings 

“That time of the month.” Some men find it innocuous, while women find it frustrating. It devalues their ideas and reinforces the damaging perception that women's emotions are illogical and reliant on their menstrual cycle.

Invasive Behavior
