The fact is, we'd love to know what has caused you to become unhappy with us, so we can at least consider making amends. And your unwillingness to illuminate us is both frustrating and counter-productive. Remember, men are generally not particularly intuitive and we need to be told things in a very direct manner — subtlety is completely lost on us.
So, the next time your significant other inquires about the icy treatment you're giving him, help facilitate the thaw and tell him point-blank what's on your mind. At least then there's the possibility you'll be able to satisfactorily resolve things and get back to what's really important in the relationship … makeup sex.
The above is merely the tip of the iceberg, and offers only a preliminary look at the things men despise. It does, however, offer a little insight into what behaviors to avoid, in order to encourage a harmonious relationship. Conversely, the information could also be used to effectively annoy the hell out of your guy when you feel he deserves it. But that would just be manipulative and mean. And guys really hate that.
