-Actually using "dis" or "dat" or "wid" or any other form of language like that.
-Not giving any real info about yourself (ie, "I like to have fun")

-Any demands that she needs to be respected. Its not that I don't know how to respect a woman, but I've always been of the mind that a person who is respected doesn't need to demand...they know what they are worth and when they don't need to put up with some one else.
