Women love silent treatment, which often seems like “standard practice.” However, men find it a huge turnoff. “It’s ridiculous and infuriating,” writes a guy who ended a relationship due to this. “Silent treatment is abusive,” reads another post.

Men also hate it when women describe their toxic traits as cute. “There’s a huge difference between being blunt respectfully and being a bitch,” shares a commentator.

One guy writes, “I acknowledge that you have been in a previous relationship where someone lied and/or cheated on you but don’t spend your life trying to catch me in some lie, so you can have your self-fulfilling prophecy that all men are liars.

“This is called DARVO: Deny, Attack, Reverse, Victim, and Offender. It is a common manipulation strategy of psychological abusers,” points out a user. 

Another user explains that it is similar to the woman saying, “I did something horrible which made you mad. Now I’m upset because you are mad at me, and you have to make me feel better.”

Men also share it is exhausting when they ask a woman how they feel only to get an “I’m okay” when things clearly aren’t okay. 

“I hate the phrases ‘I’m fine’ and ‘It’s fine’ because now I have to play 20 questions to figure out what’s wrong, or I’m the one who doesn’t communicate,” says a dude.  

Not Taking Accountability

“I cannot stand it,” says a user, “Especially when you hear them use their normal voice when speaking to someone professionally, and they go back to baby voice with you.”
