|10 Bad Habits No Grown Woman Should Have by Tombrown3(m): 9:49am On Dec 03|
We tend to outgrow the bad habits we developed in our younger years naturally. If those bad habits didn’t die off, society wouldn’t be able to function because we’d be a bunch of unproductive adult-children sucking our thumbs during meetings and biting our nails in the bread aisle. But, for some people, certain pestiferous habits stick around much longer than they should. These habits should never follow a woman into adulthood.
1. DATING “BAD BOYS.” You’re not a rebel without a cause. You’re a grown ass woman with a job, an apartment and plants. You can’t, in all seriousness, have a “BUT DADDY I LOVE HIM!” attitude and then go home and pay your electric bill. Responsibility and riding off into the sunset on a motorcycle with a greasy-haired convicted felon will never mix. The appeal of the “bad boy” should wear off at the same time you outgrow your training bra.
2. GIVING OUT A FAKE NUMBER. If you’re not interested in a guy and you don’t want to give him your number, then don’t. Turning someone down because you’re not interested isn’t mean, but deliberately giving the guy a wrong number is. So is giving him your actual number and then ignoring all of his texts. If you’re not interested, say so, and tell the guy to have a good night. If he doesn’t leave you alone, revert back into your gargoyle form until he gets scared and leaves.
3. TELLING YOUR FRIENDS EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR SEX LIFE. Your friends do not want to picture you bent over backwards doing the Chattanooga piledriver. It may have been fun to swap stories when sex was brand new for all of you, but its novelty has likely worn off by now. The devil’s business is a normal part of your lives and should remain largely private, especially if your partner isn’t comfortable with you describing every act in graphic detail over brunch using whipped cream and crepes to better illustrate your story.
4. EXCESSIVE SOCIAL MEDIA USAGE. Do you really have nothing better to do than spend hours digging through pictures and posts from people you barely remember? If your life is so boring that you spend most of it living vicariously though everyone else online, maybe you should get some hobbies. If a complete stranger can look at your social media profiles and quickly determine your work schedule, when you get your period, the names of every stuffed animal you’ve ever had and the consistency of your last bowel movement, you are giving out WAY too much information online. If you have enough time to do that, people are going to think you have no life.
5. NOT APPROACHING GUYS. It’s 2018. You don’t have to sit around in your tower waiting for some dude to come rescue you and take you to see a fruity opera. If you see someone who interests you, walk over to him and strike up a conversation. There’s nothing wrong with a woman making the first approach. That “women must be chased” BS needs to die in a fire along with lime-flavored candy and duckface.
6. NOT WORKING OUT. You don’t need to hit the gym so hard that you become a female version of The Mountain, but staying active is important for all adults. Spending all of your free time sitting on your butt shoveling sugar into your face is going to land you on an episode of My 600-lb Life. You only get one body, so make an effort to take care of it.
7. FAILING TO TAKE OFF YOUR MAKEUP AT THE END OF THE DAY. There is no excuse for this one. All you need is a makeup wipe or a bottle of face wash. Cleaning everything off takes two minutes tops. Your skin needs to breathe while you sleep, not suffocate under a day’s worth of makeup and other dirt and grime. Leaving makeup on overnight can cause premature aging, breakouts and defiled pillow cases, among other things. Just wipe yourself off. It isn’t difficult to do that in other areas.
8. COMPLAINING ABOUT YOUR BODY. If you wanted to annoy your friends and make your boyfriend/husband uncomfortable with your insecurities, then you succeeded. Otherwise, complaining about your body accomplishes nothing. There’s no point in comparing your body to someone else’s when they look a certain way and you don’t. We’re all different and our bodies will respond to stress and aging in various ways over time. If there’s something about your appearance that bothers you and you have the power to change it, then by all means, change it. Just don’t voice your complaints constantly to people who have already reassured you that no, you don’t look fat in those jeans.
9. NOT SEEING A GYNECOLOGIST REGULARLY. Lady parts, though awesome, need regular maintenance. It’s important to keep yourself informed on what’s happening down there, especially if you have a predisposition to things like cervical cancer or endometriosis. Regular check ups are good for your health and your peace of mind. See a good doctor regularly and make sure all of your lady machinery is in tip-top shape and ready to go.
10. STAYING IN UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS FOR WAY TOO LONG. Enough with the flimsy, BS excuses. You’re an adult, and you’re miserable with the guy. You don’t have to stay in a bad relationship the same way you don’t have to stand in a puddle of urine in the kiddie pool. Whatever your (disturbing) reasons are, you’re there by choice even though there are plenty of better places to be. All you need is enough willpower to walk away.

About that no 2
I actually prefer collecting the number cuz I don't Have time for long talk and would immediately delete it once I leave.
There are some that are still there,which I don't intend ever calling.
Its very stressing when you tell a guy no and he keeps disturbing your life

Allaboutkatiee:I understand you pattern, my sister had to change her main line cause of it. I blamed her for giving out the number in the first place, she learnt her lesson though.

Having low self esteem and resorting to the use of bleaching cream, ass pads, breast pads and not having a skill or education. These are the biggest turn-offs for responsible guys like me.

Ladies love talking about their sex life, from there they learn different sex styles and become experienced sexually, a problem shared is half solved, if you know, you know.
I don't understand, am I supposed to be approaching guys? please I'm not yet 30.
