12 Things To Never Say To A Woman During An Argument

May 17, 2021

People argue. It’s normal. But hey, when you’re arguing with a woman, here are 12 things you should never say.

Well, unless you want your head on a stake…

1. Calm down.

The only reason you should tell a woman to calm down in a argument is if you want her to get angrier. Even if she’s not calm, find something else to say. But, calm down? Just start digging your grave.

2. What do you want me to say?

If you don’t have anything to say, just be saying you’re sorry.

3. Are you on your period?

This one is worse if she’s actually on her period. Here is a list of things you should never say to a woman on her period.

4. I told you so.

This one is worse if she’s in the wrong. Just take your win and smirk in your corner. If you say “I told you so”, you will awaken something within her that you didn’t know existed and end up being the one apologizing.

5. My ex never did this.

Just start looking for a new woman.

6. Nothing.

You can’t just keep quiet o. You have to say something.

7. Is that why you’re crying?

This one might seem like it’s fun to say but this is how villains are created. She might not stop crying immediately, but she will definitely poison you.

8. I’m not in the mood for this.

So, she’s the one that is in the mood for argument abi? Abi!?

9. You’re being too emotional.

Please don’t say this.

10. You’re overreacting.

I feel like I shouldn’t have to tell you this one. It’s up there with “Calm down”. Just avoid it, and your generations will be spared.

11. I don’t care.

If you find yourself saying this during an argument with a woman, just know that your village people are on your matter, and they will not relent until they have finished you. Nobody in their right minds would say this to someone they care about during an argument.

12. OK.

This is the equivalent of leaving her on blue ticks, or replying “k” to her messages. She will eat your head off.
