What drives you CRAZY (not in a good way)?
We all know someone who does that one thing that drives us up a wall. He might not be doing anything else that irritates you except for this ONE thing.
Trust me, we ALL know that guy. Unfortunately, people don’t always know when they are being annoying or frustrating… unless you say something to them. And even then, talking about it doesn’t always help the matter.
Chances are, you have been in a situation where you have tried to reason with a guy you're dating, whose bad habits drive you up a wall and suddenly, you snap.
Maybe he leaves a conversation without resolving an issue or perhaps he gets condescending and defensive when you try to talk to him about a touchy subject.
Whatever the case may be, you probably feel like you are stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Do you snap at him and risk ruining your relationship or friendship, or do you hold it in and hope his annoying traits stop bothering you? Either way, you are kinda screwed.
Sure, there are more tactful ways to bring up someone’s annoying habits besides accidentally yelling at them, but then you still have to deal with the aftermath of it all.
As I say this, you are probably thinking that it is just better to pretend it all goes away, but there is a MUCH better solution to dealing with a guy’s bad habits.
He might have a few bad habits that drive you insane just because of the type of person he is, but he also has a whole other set of traits based on his zodiac sign. Before you roll your eyes and tell me, “yeah, yeah his sign sure makes a difference,” hear me out.
We all have different personality traits depending on which star sign we were born under.
According to this, his actions might be driving you crazy because of his zodiac sign, which means you might have an upper hand if you know how his mind works.
So, read below to see what men with each zodiac sign do that make you totally INSANE, as well as how to help them fix it.
Aries men are better than everybody else and they know it (Ha!), but that doesn't excuse the fact that he can sometimes act like a total asshole. His dominant personality attracts almost everybody to him, making him that one person you know who really does have 100 friends. However, his social nature can sometimes turn into something that borders on aggressive, making it impossible to reason with him.
Instead of getting angry at him, which believe me, he has no time for, speak to him like an adult. He would much rather you tell him what bothers you so much instead of beating around the bush. Honesty and maturity go a very long way with an Aries and in the end, it will end up strengthening your relationship with him. Start acting fake and you will lose a great friend.
You would have MUCH more success arguing with a brick wall than trying to get through to a Taurus man. His stubbornness can be so bad that you might consider forgetting all about what made you angry in the first place, just so you don't have to deal with his attitude anymore. He takes a lot of pride in his intelligence and his ability to be persuasive, but that can often turn cocky very quickly.
The strategy of a Taurus man's position in an argument is to win ... period. Just dropping the issue only means that he wins the argument faster. So instead, knowing exactly what you want to say to him and sticking to your guns is the best way to make sure that his stubborn attitude doesn't drive you nuts. He'll also respect your perseverance and strength as a person.
Gemini men are crazy fun people to be around, and they love getting out there and doing some of their favorite things with their friends. You might have already noticed this, but typically, a Gemini man is not very good at making decisions. He can be SO indecisive that it can feel like pulling teeth when you try to make plans with him.
It might be because he wants you to agree with what he chooses or it might just be because he has no idea what he wants to do Friday night, but either way, it drives you crazy. The worst thing you can do is put a Gemini on the spot or force him to make a decision. Instead, try to make plans together that you can both be happy with so that he feels like it isn't completely on him to make the decision. Baby steps are how you will win him over.
Trying to cheer up a Cancer man can be an almost-impossible feat. With such a pessimistic outlook on life, it is no wonder that this can be one of the moodiest signs.
He might try to convince you into thinking that his pessimism is just him being a realist, but it isn't; he's just being negative. It can be especially hard to get him to cheer up when he gets into one of his moods, which can put a damper on your night.
Instead of giving up on him, though, try to get him to talk about what is making him act this way. He knows how to get in touch with his emotions, but he might need a little extra help seeing situations in a more positive light. Giving him a reason to smile can be exactly the kind of pick-me-up he needs.
Leo men can be a lot of fun to hang out with and can bring a lot of excitement into your life. That said, if he has a choice between Netflix and chill and going out to that new bar, he will choose to stay at home nine times out of ten. This doesn't mean that he's boring to be around, but it does mean that he can get sucked into his laziness pretty easily.
He might try to persuade you into thinking that he is just a laid-back guy, but in reality, he's just plain lazy.
This can be incredibly frustrating if you are trying to make plans with him because chances are, he will make it THAT much more difficult to set up a game plan. The best remedy for this is to pull him off his ass every once in a while and force him to have fun away from his couch. He might be grumpy at first, but when he realizes how much fun he has when he's out, his attitude about trying new things might change.
Virgo men take a very methodical approach to life, making them one of the smartest signs. The more intimate details he knows about someone, the better he feels about opening up. He's are incredibly practical and loyal with a very solid head on his shoulders, but his serious personality can sometimes make him seem like a wet blanket.
Virgo guys may be serious, but that doesn't mean that they doesn't take criticism hard.
In fact, telling him outright that his kind-of-dull personality bothers you will only make it harder on your relationship. Instead, try to get to know him more intimately and learn what HIS favorite things are. That way, the two of you can vibe on a more intellectual level without making him feel like he's being a bore.
It might sound a little over-the-top, but a Libra man would much rather die than have a full-blown argument with someone, especially if it is with someone they love. He sees his relationships and friendships as equal partnerships where both people share the same interests and values. Unfortunately, you can't avoid disagreement forever, although he certainly tries.
It can drive you crazy when he pretends like nothing is wrong, especially when you try to bring it up to resolve it. Libra guys HATE confrontation, so if there something important that the two of you need to talk about, it's probably best to approach the subject lightly. Otherwise, he might refuse to bring it up again, even when he knows it's the right thing to do.
If you ever hear a Scorpio man describe himself as complex, what he's really saying is that he's a hypocrite. He isn't so great with opening up to people, even with those he has known forever, but that doesn't stop him from complaining about people not being honest with him. For whatever reason, this guy has issues with practicing what he preaches. He might have a hard time trusting people, but he can be dishonest, too.
The good thing is that he isn't afraid to hear the truth, even when it's not easy for you to say. Be upfront with him and tell him how much it annoys you when he deliberately keeps things from you, and tell him that you want to help him become a more honest, open person. The more he understands the situation, the better your chances are of powering through his annoying habit.
Sagittarius is a very likable sign. He will often act a certain way in order to keep his likable appearance up. Chances are good that his social personality caught your interest in the first place, but now that the two of you know each other so well, it's only natural for him to start acting like himself, right? Unfortunately, Sagittarius men hate the thought of anyone disliking them, meaning he might say anything just to keep the peace.
If he starts acting as if everything is fine (even when you know the two of you are having some differences), he is just trying to sweep his issues under the rug. Getting him to speak openly about what might be bothering him, and how to fix it as a team, will strengthen your relationship and give him a reason to stop making empty promises.
Capricorn can be a very condescending sign, so sometimes he can make others feel like their opinions don't matter. Chances are, you have had a disagreement with him that has turned into something much worse, thanks to his know-it-all attitude. He might not even be winning the argument, but his bad attitude says otherwise.
This drives you crazy because he often doesn't see you as an equal when it comes to settling disagreements, and he might even start "man-splaining" his side of things. The phrase "don't raise your voice, improve your argument" is the perfect way to deal with a Capricorn when he starts acting all high and mighty.
An Aquarius man's ability to not care about things (whether or not they're pretending) is almost so good that you forget how much it pisses you off. His aloof attitude often makes it seem like he has no emotion whatsoever. This might be a defense mechanism to ensure he doesn't get hurt, but it can also be incredibly frustrating when you are trying to get some kind of response out of him.
The best way to solve this issue is to NOT mirror his actions and tell him that you don't care either. You might have a good cold shoulder, but no one does it better than an Aquarius. Instead, express how you're feeling and let him know how important it is to talk through issues. If you are honest with an Aquarius, your disagreement will go MUCH better than if you aren't.
A Pisces man makes a great friend and partner because he is one of the more emotionally open signs. That said, he can often try to play the victim when things don't go his way. He might not outright put the blame on you during an argument, but chances are good that he will act like a martyr in hopes that you will be the one to forgive him instead of the other way around.
He might not be doing this on purpose, but after all of the time and effort he puts into his relationships and friendships, losing people can be hard for him to deal with (meaning he overreacts). Try to relate how you are feeling to how he's feeling so that he can get a better perspective and hopefully change his attitude for the better.
