When building respectful relationships, you must consider redlines that may attract or repel others to you. While people have different things they dislike, certain behaviors and traits evoke adverse reactions from men. A community of men on the internet feels a heads-up on these traits, which could give you an edge on how best not to break the character code when dealing with their kind.
Men are known to be bold and aggressive if needed, and many of them say there’s nothing they hate more than someone who speaks behind their back, as it could be an act of cowardice. An insistent user on an internet thread says they “dislike people who constantly talk negatively behind other people’s back.” Another man replies in clear words, “Two-faced people disgust me.”
Although ego could be attributed to most men, some say arrogance pushes them to the edge of proving a point when dealing with anyone with a superiority complex. A participant in the conversation says arrogance is a symptom of the mental stagnation of the purveyor.
Hostility, when it is unnecessary, is one of those things some men say they cannot tolerate. One man says hostility could indicate an underlying inferiority complex needing a cover-up.
Several men say they can’t stand a constantly negative person. One contributor says constant negativity soils the joy in the atmosphere and should be repealed as it could be contagious.
Someone explains that some people are contractual to order, saying they love to go against norms to be the perfect contrarian, even when their actions contradict eco-friendly attitudes. Buttressing the point, a second person says they knew someone who had eaten in a lobby and decided to leave his trash behind, even when he had to walk past a trash bin. “I instantly disliked him,” he adds.
Only Wanting to Talk About Self
Men say they dislike self-obsessed people and only want the conversation around their subjects of interest. “I usually avoid interacting with people who only want to talk about themselves,” a contributor chimes. Another says self-obsessed people are a bore.
Maltreating People on the Lower Rand
A man says he dislikes class treatment. “Treating wait staff, janitors, and people with similar professions poorly is the one attitude I can’t tolerate from anyone,” he clarifies. A second person suggests the comment is highly underrated.
“Too Quick” to Be All Buddy-Buddy
Yes, men love friendly people, but not people who seek intimacy too quickly, as one man says that could be a sign of a manipulative person. However, a second man argues people are sometimes friendly and fun without ulterior motives.
Bragging to Undermine
Everyone dislikes people who reduce their achievements to rubble, but men hold more dislike for them. According to one commentator, the kind of people who, no matter what you’ve done, they’ve done something ten times cooler” is not to be friends with. Other men affirm their agreement with his take.
Pets and wildlife animals share the planet with us and are irreplaceable parts of our ecosystem. People on the thread say animal cruelty is a turn-off and that they would instantly dislike anyone who mistreats animals.
Some people on the thread state that the ‘me’ syndrome is a complete turn-off. If people are deeply into themselves so much they can’t see through the perspectives of others, they become unworthy of meaningful relationships.
Racial Slur or Victimhood
Someone says they’ll gravely dislike a person “If they bring race into everything,” suggesting their dismissal for anyone quick to hurl racial slur or play the victim card even when the conversation isn’t steering in that direction. A couple of other people say they also find it annoying.
