At the end of my last blog about common mistakes men make in a marriage or relationship, I promised the ladies would be next! Brace yourselves … here are the top mistakes women make in a marriage or relationship:
- As women, some of us tend to be what are called “Go-oners.” A go-oner is someone who tends to go around the same block a few times on a subject to make sure she is heard. By the way, there are men who do this, but it tends to be a female trait. Women need to learn to reign themselves in when sharing details if they want their mate to hear their core message.
- Women have a tendency to ask their mate advice and then not take it. Most likely, we are gathering information so that we can make an informed decision ourselves, but once in awhile, we need to just take our mate’s advice.
- Some women have a habit of chasing their mate once he has stated he needs time to be alone and sort things out. The more a woman chases, the more her mate will close himself off, for a longer period of time.
- Many women fall into the role of “Mom” and become what’s called a “helicopter mate.” This is someone who hovers over her partner reminding him to do things over and over again. This habit turns the dynamic of the relationship from an equal partnership to more of a parent/child relationship.
