Online dating coaches are increasingly commonplace now that TikTok and other applications with reels and videos have gained popularity. Many guys are taking their advice, and they have new strategies and words they may use to pull women in.

You are a human being with emotions so drop the tough guy facade and be yourself. Trying to act tough all the time without any reason for it is very irritating to most guys. You can barely bump into a guy on the street today and apologize and walk away freely without the other guy trying to act all tough and gangster and weird. Just be a human for 20 minutes, laugh, and shake things off. Life isn’t that serious.

3. Men Not Making Female Friends

In our culture, the When Harry Met Sally controversy has long since passed. A lot of men find it difficult to be women’s friends, and when they do, they often don’t respect their relationship.

Most men have complained about how irritating it is when they hear that it is impracticable for men to have close female friends. On an online forum, a man had this to say about the issue, 

“It irritates me greatly that so many men are unable to have female friends. My closest female friend is a woman. I have no sexual interest in her because she is married. My male pals often behave as though I’m attempting to hook up with her.”

4. Men Who Adhere To The “Bro Code”

Sadly, many guys still adhere to the “bro code,” and they expect other guys to do the same. Everyone may have a different idea of what this term means. On an online forum, somebody says they find it repulsive when other guys are “delighted to be of cheating, but they lose their minds if their spouse even so much as looked in another man’s direction.” Another person added, “Being proud of cheating yet expecting fellow guys to keep quiet about it because of the ‘bro code.’

If Bro Code means doing wrong and getting away with it, then it is a terrible and irritating thing to adhere to as a man.

5. Men Spitting All Over

We acknowledge that some people chew tobacco as a habit, but the frequent spitting even pisses off other men. Someone said on a platform, “Guys, sincerely, can you go fifteen minutes without spitting on the floor like you’re marking your territory?”

6. Laughing At The Hobbies Of Other Men

At some point, males concluded that specific hobbies or activities were more appropriate for women. Some men don’t want to drink and watch sports, so stop making fun of them!

In the comments on a platform where this topic was being discussed, a guy stated, “I get criticized for enjoying crocheting and baking. I’m done with it.” Another person concurred, saying “Real men do anything they want.”

7. The Misogyny Of Men Toward Women

One person said on the platform that they were brought up by a single mother and had a sister, making them more prone to witnessing men being sexist, condescending, and dominating toward women. This is a common issue, though, and guys shouldn’t need a sister or a wonderful mother to demand better behavior from other men.

8. Men Who Don’t Speak Out About Other Men

Men ought to start calling one other out more, even if it violates the “bro code” guidelines. According to an individual, their brother often complains about how guys won’t speak out if they see other men acting inappropriately. As already mentioned before, the bro code should not be used to pass over bad behavior. It is not worth it.

9. Men Who Think Being Nice Is Flirting

A lady is not flirting with you just because she compliments you or is kind to you.  A man once shared a story about how, while attending a bachelor party, and joked with the waiter, “After she went away, one of the guys says, ‘Damn, look at you flirting.'” No, I was interacting nicely with another human; I’m married.

10. Men Giving Unwanted Financial Advice

Today, when there are so many individuals trading in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and playing stock market games, you see a lot more men giving unwanted financial advice. “Hey dude, you should purchase Bitcoin right now.” Hey, no one asked you, bro, yes we all now know you know so much about cryptocurrencies, but we can now have a moment of rest? You should maybe wear a shirt that reads, “I am trending, I know a lot about cryptocurrencies too!”
