Accents are fascinating! They add a layer of personality and cultural richness to our speech. While most people find accents charming and attractive, some struggle with understanding them. 

A user says, “Accents. I don’t have anything against them. The problem for me is I have a hard time understanding what someone is saying. I tend to reply yes. Once, I had to go shopping for a whole day ’cause I couldn’t figure out what a girl asked me.”

MODELS OR MOVIE STARS

Movie stars and conventionally attractive women often trigger a strong emotional response in men due to factors like beauty, success, and perceived unattainability. However, not all men are swayed by these qualities. Some find them shallow or intimidating and prefer partners who are more grounded and relatable. 

A user says, “I do not understand what many guys find attractive about the ‘really hot’ women they go on and on about. I’m all for everyone having a type, but things like models or movie stars, I just don’t find that great.”

BEING CALLED DADDY

Some men feel uncomfortable with the term “daddy” due to its potential connotations. It can evoke feelings of creepiness or incest, as it blurs the lines between romantic and parental roles. Additionally, it may imply a power imbalance, with the woman adopting a submissive and childlike role, which some men find undesirable in a relationship.

A user says,”Anything that involves the woman referring to her man as ‘daddy’ or something similar. It doesn’t just ‘not do it’ for me. It’s actively a turn-off.”

They may also dislike the perceived artificiality of heavy makeup or find it unnecessary to enhance a woman’s natural features.

A user says,”I don’t like submissive women. I don’t want a person I have to treat like a child or tell them what to do. I don’t need her under me 24/7. I never understand why people want that.”

HIGH MAINTENANCE WOMEN

Some men find high-maintenance girls challenging in relationships due to the perceived imbalance in effort and needs. They might feel pressure to constantly cater to desires and expectations, leaving them drained and unappreciated.

A user says,”When you date someone, it should feel like they are a friend and a partner. Things flow easily, fights are infrequent, and little relationship ‘maintenance’ needs to be done.When you are with someone who is ‘high maintenance,’ it feels like you’re with someone who is your boss and a spoiled brat. Something is always wrong, and things need to be ‘fixed.'”
