Random Thoughts: I dislike it when men...

I am sitting at the airport, waiting for the nasal lady to announce my flight (do they go to a special school to learn how speak in that unintelligible manner?) and of course surreptitiously taking in the arrival of other passengers.  I have a lot of people to look at (including a girl who is wearing sunglasses indoors plus knee high boots while others are melting – it is possible that her body is here but her mind or whatever regulates her temperature is in a sunny place where it is cold) and that has somehow inspired this post.

I dislike it when men:

  • Have over-defined bodies and then wear really tight tops to show them off. Arggh! It seems that the favorite top for these body builders is the one in the photo above. Almost forgot this one...the guy that wears a net top. It is cut away such that there is 10% fabric and 90% body on display.
  • I was going to say: wear colored shoes ( I can forgive red trainers) but some guy just passed by wearing a lime green t-shirt , a pair of jeans and lime green trainers. Not a bad look.
  • Can cook. While they are great at whipping up a meal, they can also be great at criticizing whatever you put before them. “There is too much salt.” “Just a little bit of curry would have pepped this up.” “Are you sure you put in garlic?” “It tastes kind of bland.”  I am a good cook but like everyone else, I have my off days.  I like guys that wolf down whatever you put in front of them. It will be great to be with one that cooks and agrees to help out that way, the only condition being that he has to reserve his acerbic comments. I don’t want to know that the food is not to your liking.
  • Have more cosmetics than I do. I was once amazed by a guy’s collection which included nail growth cream, hair mousse and hair gel. For the love of all things good! While I do not want a guy who is a slob, there are 2 major things wrong with these guys: They are too “aware” of themselves and anyone that they are with has to be on point constantly. Just like the cooks, they point out ashy elbows, overgrown cuticles and lightly chipped nail polish. I am generally well groomed and again, have off days when I do not need the pressure of a perfect looking boyfriend who wants me to match him. The second thing is that they look too "done". The not a hair out of place look is not natural. 
  • Wear see-through outfits.  And go commando. Where do you want me to put my eyes? Abeg!  Or they wear head to toe white sheer linen and top it off with flaming red boxers or worse, boxers with cartoon characters drawn all over them. It is a violation of my personal space.
  • Think that it is sexy to show their workman’s cleavage. Cringe worthy!

Enough for now. Would be interesting to hear what the men have to say about what women do.

I almost missed my flight today because I was typing this…..I had to run to catch the plane! The price one has to pay for being a gbegborun and not minding their own business.


  1. LOL..very funny post..

    totally feel u about guys that can cook. My Hubby can cook somewhat..but he will eat anything I give him as long as it is not half cooked or burnt...and that is a big relief for me cuz like u i have my off days

  2. Nice one. I am with you on most especially the 'wear see-through outfits'. Wearing shocking bright shirts also do my head in. I can stand the cooks since I know how to turn a deaf ear to

  3. Wow! ...such a long (but, sensible) list.

  4. @ Aloted: That is a rare trait from a man who can cook. Lucky you!

    @ Ayodele: Thanks for stopping by. Have not considered shocking right shirts...I think I need to do a part 2, lol!

    @ rethots: I am glad you think so. Hopefully this will inspire a post about things that females do that you dislike. We live to learn everyday and it will be nice to get a man's view.

  5. ok lol..let me rephrase..all he can cook is eba, white rice and his delicacy asaro (yam porridge) and he pounds yam too. Anytime we want to eat asaro i make him cook

    so am guessing he doesnt really fall into that category of male

  6. the guy with loads of cosmetics may be in the closet.nice list.

  7. @In my head - Yay! to the prospects of Part 2. Someone needs to tell them lol! Whilst you are at it pls do include those thick neck bands they call chains.

    @Nonesuch - You!

    @ aloted babe that's a fine list you have there he's a cook alright. You should see my microwave eba...need I say more?

  8. Hehehe...i totally hate it when guys wear see through clothes!

    I'm blessed to have a hubby who thinks i'm the best cook in the world although he can cook..he hardly does anyway!

  9. Haha I hate it when men can cook too! And when they have more cosmetics than I do...infact I pretty much agree with your whole dog-on list!

  10. "Can cook" should go ahead and do the cooking instead of nagging.

    Let them show off thier muscle so they can stop blaming women for showing of thier cleavage

    Lol at almost missing yoru flight. Sorry o

  11. i think you were having an off day sitting at the airport.

    I can cook, i think, and dont complain about food, never ever as i only eat for sustenance. having said that, i wouldnt like to be taken for granted and given rice every day of the week.

  12. haha. If chicks get to show off cleavage, so should dudes.

  13. lol...builder's bottoms are a no no for me too

  14. if u've got something not nice to say about my cooking..........say it when i'm asleep

    i like to ogle the skin tight tops.....bring it on when u've got nice abs

    see thru on men is a no-no

    the crack of a butt is a BIG no-no

  15. This post got me thinking about something I have been wanting to say but never had the platform to say it.

    I dislike it when women do things that are stereotypically sexy. What do I mean? In some cultures, being blond, having big boobs, and wearing a wet tee-shirt is considered sexy.Thus all these features filters into the mainstream fashion and daily dress sense tip,reducing population I consider attractive (women who are just being themselves).

    I also hate it when I see people (men and women) take seriously, magazines that advice on personal issues like "sex tips" or "how to know your partners is cheating on you". These self help tools only enable more "in the box" personalities and responses.
    My two cents.

  16. That was funny Ayo, still laughing at work. Really agree with you esp the cooking bit. it really gets me when i slave all day (well not) to cook a meal and hubby says not enough salt or oil. ahhh it gets me and am thinking well cook it yourself next time!!!
