The ONE Phrase You Should Never Say To A Woman + Others To Avoid

Ladies, I’d love to get your thoughts on this and guys…PAY ATTENTION!!!! Apparently, THIS is the WORST phrase a man can utter to a woman. What is it? ONE WORD: SMILE. Bonus: if you add “you’d be so pretty if” before “smile,” you’re getting a DEATH STARE. Kinda like what’s happening in the video below.


Runners up – NEVER say these phrases, either:

“You’re just like your mother.” (You know what…anything that ends in “like your mother” needs to be on this list.”

“How far along are you?” (…um, I’m not pregnant.)

“You’re just a woman.”

“What’s wrong, are you on the rag?”

“That’s a woman’s job.”

“Calm down.”

“Did you take your meds?”

“Don’t you worry your pretty little head about it.”

“You’re not as young as you used to be.”

“A woman’s place is in the home.”


And feel free to share some others NOT mentioned here. 🙂
