    1. You're listening, not hearing
    There is a major difference between hearing and listening. Unfortunately, you have not grasped the concept and your girlfriend is tired of explaining it to you. The basic premise is simple: When you hear her, her voice is audible. You can make out sounds and words. When you listen to her, you understand and acknowledge her.

    A look of apparent concern combined with the occasional nod will not appease her forever. You must drop everything to pay attention to what she has to say, even if you don't think it's important. If it is important to her, it is important period. So listen up.

    2. You're gushing compliments
    Do you compliment your girlfriend more out of habit than out of sincerity? For instance, when you pick her up to go for dinner, do you find yourself exclaiming, "You look great," every single time -- without really looking at her? If so, then you are suffering from knee-jerk compliment syndrome. Break the cycle of dull compliments now while you still have her in your life.

    If you want to keep her happy, vary the routine. Mix it up every now and then by paying attention to the little details. Her hair, her jewelry, her outfit. Keep track of changes and let her know when you spot something different.

    3. You're focusing entirely on her body
    Now and then you may want to compliment her on something other than her appearance. Ration the booty comments or else risk being associated with men who focus on nothing but sex. Do not give her the chance to consider for one second that your motives are insincere or simply physical.

    Even if she is a sex fiend, slow down in order to gain her respect. Focus on qualities like her intelligence, opinions, ideas, and values. Interact with her, and compliment her occasionally on something she says or does. Let her know that she is not just a sexual object to you. (In an ironic twist, you may get more sex!)

    4. You turn into another person in front of your friends
    Do you have a habit of acting differently with your woman when you are around your male friends? This is a classic bad "guy" habit and perhaps one of the most difficult to break. As men, we often feel it is a sign of weakness to show affection to our girlfriends when our buddies are around. Since when did loving your girlfriend out in the open become an emasculating experience? Why do we need to dis our women to demonstrate our worth as a man to our friends? If you want to hold on to a good thing, drop the act now. A real man is not ashamed of his affections.

    1. Leaving the toilet seat up isn't that big of a deal. But leaving skid marks in the bowl is a problem.
    2. Really loud snoring. I know women are sometimes guilty of this, but it seems like men are the champion snorers, especially after they have been drinking.
    3.Yucky toenails. Not taking care of one's feet in general.
    4. The joke about men refusing to ask for directions when they're lost is totally true. Hate that!!!

    This illustrates a key point for the opposition: women have no fucking idea what they fucking want.

    The title clearly states that men "listening, not hearing" is a "habit women hate". The supporting text goes on to suggest that men need to listen more instead of hearing. WTF???

    Y'know, if the women could read a damn map, we wouldn't have this problem! Actually, seems women spend a lot of time complaining about driving in general, but every time you ask "who's driving?", the male gets voted in!

    And for the record, I get more bothered when the toilet lid is not down! That's the gateway to the sewer, folks - close that thing!
    Remember that episode of "Seinfeld" where the toothbrush fell in the toilet? If the lid is down - not a problem!
    People complain about the dog drinking out of the toilet? If the lid is down - not a problem!

    Most men subscribe to the "fire and forget" school of toiletry... basically meaning, once that sucker's launched, it's on its own. Originating asshole (the ACTUAL asshole, not the asshole it's attached to ) should not be held responsible for subsequent actions. And stop looking in the toilet bowl. That's gross.

    2. Really loud snoring. I know women are sometimes guilty of this, but it seems like men are the champion snorers, especially after they have been drinking.

    Oh, yeah, hey, lemme just turn down the volume switch on this TOTALLY INVOLUNTARY ACTION.

    3.Yucky toenails. Not taking care of one's feet in general.

    Hell, I'm right with ya on this one. Ewwwww.

    4. The joke about men refusing to ask for directions when they're lost is totally true. Hate that!!!

    Actually, this is not technically correct. Men have no problem whatsoever asking for directions when we're lost. What men refuse to do is admit we're fucking lost in the first place. Men are *never* "lost". Unscheduled sightseeing tours? All the time. Just wanted to circle back and see this spot again 'cuz he thought he saw Elvis? Been there. Relax and enjoy the ride, because we know exactly where we are: we're right here. Lost? Never.

    K, all done now. [img]smile.gif[/img]
