We all do things that irritate other people, right? But sometimes, there are little habits that seem to crop up on entirely too many of our first — and often last — dates with dudes.
Sometimes you can be with someone and all the stars align and you have mind blowing Samantha Jones-like sex. It's incredible. Sometimes you don't. Sometimes sex is so awful you're like, "Bro.

According to an article by iVillage, men hate it when you criticize other women, are too emotional, use sex as a weapon, and pretend to be virtuous.

Now, we applaud those ladies who truly are innocent and pure, but the rest should stop trying to water down their past. Women are allowed to have just as much fun as guys, and they should find a man who can appreciate that."
