There a number of things which men do in a relationship which may scare the wits out of a woman without intending to. Do you do these things as well?

Men can do the weirdest and the stupidest things in a relationship and sometimes, without even intending to. They go over overboard, at times, and do certain things which not only makes the woman uncomfortable but also scare her wits off.

A lot of these things may not be done by every guy and not every girl feels awkward or scared at these acts but unintentionally, it has consequences for some women and they feel better off without the added pressure.

#1 Being overly protective

It is one thing to care for the woman in your life, to make sure that they are not left wanting for, and that you do everything in your power to make sure that they feel safe, comfortable, and secure in the relationship.

It is quite another when the guy overdoes it. The guy may have meant well but they go overboard and become too protective. They need to know where they are all the time, they need to know who the girl is hanging out with and so on. This becomes scary than safe.

#2 One-upping her all the time

There's something not right when guys presume some kind of superiority over women. It is simply stupid to believe that they are always better than the woman in their lives and that they have a right to correct them all the time.

Some guys, not all, do suffer from this malady. Their need to one-up their partners is so extreme that they simply cannot resist the chance. Every opportunity they get, they try to prove that they know better and that is when the suffocation starts.

#3 Being different around different people

We do behave differently around different people based on the kind of relationship we have with them and based on the context but the basic elements of our personalities do not change that much.

But some guys, maybe in order to impress the woman, change their behaviors drastically. They behave in one way in front of some people and quite the opposite in front of others. This extreme behavior is not only confusing but also scary for the woman.

#4 Pressuring her to hang-out

Guys do like to hang out with the women in their lives, in public. They do like going out, visiting a pub, hitting the clubs, so on and so forth. And they also like to have the women in their lives to be there with them.

Sometimes, however, they overdo this. They end up pressurizing the woman to go out with them all the time and every time that they wish to. This pressure, at times, gets to the woman and scares her as the pressure of socializing may be intense.

#5 Not respecting any of her friends

It is quite alright that a man may not like a lot of the girl's friends as it can happen in the opposite direction as well. But, in a relationship, one often has to make some compromises and effort and the guy may have to hang around at least a few close friends of her.

Sometimes, the guy simply doesn't put in the effort. He hates the girl's friends and he tells that to her outright. Honesty may be a good policy but it can really have adverse consequences on her self-esteem. If the guy does not respect any of her friends and constantly berates them, it becomes quite difficult for the girl to make sense of things.

#6 The need to be in touch constantly

If a man is in love with a woman, it is natural that he would wish to be around her, in close proximity to her, and would like to know if she is doing well or not. The need to be in touch, to some extent, can even be adorable.

A lot of the times, however, guys tend to go overboard. Their need to remain in touch turns into an obsession and they start keeping tabs on them. While this may not be done with an intention to invade the girl's privacy, it does become scary when certain lines are crossed.

#7 Being boring

It is extremely important for any relationship that the couple are of a similar nature. But it is also a fact that some people are extremely boring indeed (both men and women). While some have boring personalities, others can be boring because they are not compatible.

An adventurous relationship is always exciting for anyone but if, after some time, the guy starts showing a side which is incompatible with the woman, she loses interest in him. The relationship itself flounders. Turning into a boring person, through incompatibility, is a scary thing for a woman to face in a man.
