Women are more likely to tolerate men who whip out their organs and urinate along walls or under trees than an unfaithful man, while men would rather have a woman who nags but doesn’t dress indecently.
A new survey done by Ipsos Synovate reveals that the one thing women hate about men is their tendency to be unfaithful while what men hate most is a woman who flashes her skin! The report titled ‘Most annoying habits of Males and Females’ bears the findings of a survey conducted countrywide in June.
The survey polled 1,013 Kenyans aged 18 years and above in both rural and urban areas. The second most detested male habit by women is excessive drinking.
The tender sides of women was shown when as raping children or molestation come third as the most detested things by women.
Mean men don't have chance of ever getting a woman as stinginess was declared the fourth most detested habit by women.
So men better be prepared to dig deeper into their wallets to lure the womenfolk. The fickle nature of women is also highlighted in the study which reveals given the chance of dating a stingy man and untidy man, most women will opt for the stingy man.
Common sense would dictate that the woman takes the untidy but generous man, and use his money to keep him tidy!
Chauvinistic tendencies in men isn’t as bad as most people think since women would rather be with a chauvinist than a man who plaits his hair. Clearly, women want to be the absolute ‘woman’ in the relationship.
Contrary to popular belief, men’s legendary love for soccer ranked last in the list of thirteen most detested male habits. This should be taken as outright permission by men to stay out late and watch soccer.
Other annoying male habits were domestic violence abandoning family irresponsible behaviour in general. Others mentioned include ear piercing which is more associated with the female gender, sagging, homosexuality and polygamy.
Women in North Eastern province were unhappiest about unfaithfulness followed by Eastern and Western Kenya. Nairobi and Central provinces had the lowest incidence.
Research carried amongst the menfolk shattered the myth that men preferred scantily dressed women. About 45 percent of the men who took part in the survey said they hated indecent dressing. So next time a lady wears miniskirts, dresses with exposed slits or tight trousers, the boyfriend might smile but he will be generally uncomfortable.
