Good guys avoid drama like the plague. Some men are a bit stupid and donâ€™t realize theyâ€™re getting involved with a crazy girl until itâ€™s too late. But if they knew then what they know now… Letâ€™s be honest, all women have it in them to go a little crazy if the right guy does the wrong thing at the wrong time. But those of you who tend to straddle the line between psycho and sane have to be careful not to scare off all of the good guys before you can lock one down. If youâ€™ve ever vandalized a guyâ€™s property, screamed at him in public, or waited outside his house with the crew from â€œCheaters,â€ this list of no-noâ€™s is for you.
Over zealous jealousy: The most common reason a woman goes mental on her man is because she suspects heâ€™s cheating. If this is what ails you, the problem is one or both of the following: a.) youâ€™re insecure and jealous, or b.) youâ€™re dating an asshole. If you have actual proof that your guy has cheated on you in the past, heâ€™s overdue for a dumping. But if your irrational jealousy has you trailing your guy with the headlights out every time he says heâ€™s going out with the guys, or peeking in his window while disguised as shrubbery when he says heâ€™s too tired to hang out, get a hold of yourself! Please know that you canâ€™t force your guy to be faithful to you any more than he can force you to stop planting hidden cameras in his bedroom. Jealous behaviors, especially when theyâ€™re unwarranted, reek of Fatal Attraction. So breathe easyâ€”it would beÂ pretty hard to build a future with a guy whoâ€™s got a restraining order against you.
Going through your guyâ€™s belongings: Your boyfriendâ€™s pockets, cell phone, dresser drawers, glove compartment, etc. are all no-fly zones. Unless your guy gives you permission, you donâ€™t have the right to invade his privacy. Maybe youâ€™re looking for suspicious phone numbers, but all youâ€™ll find is trouble. If you come across something fishy youâ€™ll have to ask him about it, which will trip his crazy girl alarm. It may turn out to be nothing but thereâ€™s no going back, youâ€™ve already violated his trust. So before you hack into your guyâ€™s email, remember that snooping is far more trouble than itâ€™s worth. If you want answers, just ask your guy. And if you canâ€™t trust what he tells you, then why are you with him?
Public displays of drunken foolishness: When out with your guy, whether alone or with a group of friends, remember that heâ€™s peeping how you carry yourself and represent for the team. Having a few drinks to loosen up usually seems like a good idea at first, but sip slowly and be sure that â€œloosened upâ€ doesnâ€™t turn into plain old loose. Dancing and having fun is all good, but drunkenly flailing about the dance floor while humping innocent party-goers is not a good look. Vomiting, crying, fighting, falling, passing out, and flashing or making out with strangers are also unacceptable. Most good guys arenâ€™t looking to settle down with a sloppy drunk, so avoid getting plastered and loosing your composure, unless you want to risk losing your guy too.
Confronting your man in public: A common hallmark of a crazy girl is that she fights with her man in public. Whatever he did, it canâ€™t be resolved in the middle of Best Buy. Even if your guy is flirting with a chick at the bar, screaming at him in a crowded night club will only make you look as stupid as heâ€™ll feel. If you and your guy get into an argument, keep it private. And while weâ€™re on the subject of fighting, please remember to keep it clean. Itâ€™s not OK to throw furniture, sharp objects, or hot grits at your man; being upset is no excuse to lose your mind. Any offense deserving of a third degree burn probably warrants a dumping anyway. So, skip the physical assaults and kick him to the curb (so to speak).
Choosing a good, trustworthy guy is as important as keeping your own deranged tendencies in check, so be sure that both sides of the scale are equally weighted. If you think itâ€™s your guy whoâ€™s driving you mad, remember that if you stick around and let some looser turn you into a lunatic, heâ€™ll end up leaving your crazy ass anyway.
