17 Embarrassing Behaviors Men Wish Their Male Peers Would Ditch

Men can be reluctant to share their thoughts and feelings, but there are some behaviors that they would like to see their male counterparts give up. An internet survey recently asked men, “What is something you wish other men would stop doing?”

Here are the 17 best responses:

Be Mr Tough Arrogant Guy when An Attractive Woman Is in Their Presence

“I used to love this when I did tree work. Nobody wanted to pick up any of the big chunks of logs, but when an attractive jogger goes by, all of a sudden, all this heavy stuff starts flying into the truck.”

“I hang out with many women, waitresses mostly, from work. The amount men who want to beat me up for being around these women is ridiculous. It’s purely platonic; they’re my friends, colleagues, etc.”

Hitting on Other Guys’ Girlfriends

“Some guys consider it a challenge, and it’s pretty messed up.”

“Had an ex that had a guy doing this constantly to her. Then went to him a year later because “fun to have new compliments.””

Insulting Their Friends to Look Cool in Front of A Girl

“Proper etiquette is for the boys to prop their dude up, not for him to push them down. If your friend and his crush are nearby, you treat him like the funniest, smartest, coolest guy in the group.”

“As a girl, this is the most unattractive thing a guy can do.”

Hitting on Women Non-Stop Who Clearly Are Uncomfortable

“My guys and I discussed this in nerdy hobbies like MtG, MMO games, and anime. Just a never ceasing desperation that detracts from their own hobby and pushes girls/women away.”

Not Washing Hands After Using Public Bathrooms

“I spent 30+ years in the restaurant industry. I’d be in the men’s washroom changing paper towels, changing the garbage, etc., and how many men didn’t just wash their hands after urinating but also after going number 2 was sickening. They would go back to their food.”

“I refuse to shake people’s hands. Totally disrespectful to use the bathroom, not wash your hands, and shake someone else’s hand.”

Approaching Women in Grocery Store Parking Lots

“My girlfriend mentions that guys – often way older – will try to talk to her and ask her out while she’s carrying groceries. She’s had to stop wearing headphones because guys will follow her, trying to get her attention. The worst was a guy knocking on her window while sitting in her car.”

“When I worked at Staples, a lady asked me to help her carry out a single package of printer paper to her car once. I was so confused, but she asked, so I had to. When she got in her car seat, she waved me over and told me a guy had followed her since she was at a different store in the strip mall. I knew exactly who she was talking about. Older dude would take cars from the garage he worked at, follow women at the strip mall, confront them in the parking lot, and ask to take their picture for his photography business or hit on them.”

Acting Overly Manly and Not Smiling

“Chill, man. I’m not trying to pee on your territory.”

“It’s legitimately difficult for me to maintain a smile. I always look like I want to eat your pancreas or something, so I don’t bother much.”

Joining Ml Ms and Being Really Vague About What They Do

“I don’t want an exclusive chance to gain you as a mentor; I sat next to you in pre-algebra and know that the concept of math escapes you. Also, stop renting luxury vehicles for a weekend and pretending you “made it.” Maybe I’m just a hater, but if your whole plan is to not just fake it till you make it but to “flex” till you make it, I’m not interested in whatever opportunity you’re trying to sell me.”

“I have a friend I used to be tight with but always with big money on his mind. Joined some business that teaches people about “financial management,” and now he only shares “hustle” motivation videos. He calls me to try and set up an appointment for no other reason.”

Peeing on The Seat

“You’re a grown man, lift the seat or sit if you can’t get all your dribbles in the hole.”

“I know aiming can be difficult at times. That’s why you lift the seat: if you urinate on something, it’s under the seating area you can clean. Leaving the pee on the seat is the problem, and people who don’t wipe it off are troglodytes.”

Being Afraid to Open up To Each Other

“Making adult male friends is such a chore.”

“I did that once and got bullied out of Twitter.”

Hitting on The Female Cashier that Is Less than Half Your Age

“I’m a cashier at a fast food place. Graduated high school like 4 months ago. Once, a man in his late 40s started hitting on me, noted that I looked vaguely uncomfortable, and explained that as a female fast food cashier, I would be hit on a lot and have to roll with it. I was just struck by how ridiculous it was that he knew that but somehow didn’t think he was the problem.”

“My dad has done this my whole life, making me extremely uncomfortable. Before I made no contact (for other reasons), I would attempt to stop him and apologize to the girls, but he would continue.”

Donating Thousands to Some Random E-Girl Twitch Streamer

“We like to make fun of those types of men, but I think it speaks to the crippling loneliness they must feel. The streamer saying hi to them may be the most intimacy they get; who knows.”

“Best to look at their life before we even judge them with some things, especially this type of thing. As you said, it could be out of sheer loneliness if they don’t have such a situation. Well, then things get weird.”

Being Lazy Dads

“Just because your infant calms down faster with mom doesn’t mean there’s no point in you trying.”

“The infant would calm down if it actually knew the father.”

Sizing One Another Up

“It happens a lot. You can feel it in their body language, tone of voice, and implicit behaviors, and it’s awkward and exhausting.”

“Be polite, professional, and prepared to kill anyone you meet.”

Be Unfriendly Against Other Men in Social Situations

“I’ve said hi to some dudes at bars when I am alone and waiting for a friend or some people, and almost always, I get the cold shoulder. I am an amiable and respectful person too, so I am not doing anything creepy: just saying hi and talking about some mutual thing. This one guy was wearing my home country’s jersey, and even he was cold.”

“I sometimes go to a bar for a meal on my way home from work if the commute is long and I don’t want drive-thru for dinner. I always try my best to avoid anyone talking to me. Just because I wanted some wings doesn’t mean I wanted to make friends. I hate how a bar setting makes people think they can talk to me like they know me. I often bring in paperwork, spread it all on my table, and pretend to be busy so I can be left alone.”

Teaching Our Sons that They’re Not Supposed to Have Emotions

“Emotions are physical and part and parcel of being a biological creature. Yet growing up, boys are trained to believe that having emotions is wrong. They hear people (their mothers) described as being “emotional” as if that’s a problem, difficulty, or foreign idea. When they’re sad, they’re told to “man up” or “be tough.” Being tough is important and can be learned along with learning how to process the emotional experience. When they have a sensitive detector for the emotions of themselves or others, they’re told that they’re “too sensitive.” In contrast, they need tools to use their sensitive instrumentation to their advantage.”

Talking About Women in The Nastiest of Ways

“I don’t have examples because I’m sure I’ve blocked those memories away. But I’ve heard other guys say some absolutely vile stuff.”

“I can’t have a convo with any of my coworkers (mostly older, married with families) without their eyes drifting away to ogle at every barely legal woman in the vicinity and making a comment about it.”
