Nobody wants someone to constantly nag them about what to do, and how and when to do it. A recent survey by YourTango.com reveals that nagging is definitely a problem in most relationships. And the top 3 things that we nag at each other about most? The #1 object of nagging is attention-related, for example “pay more attention to me!” Housework is cited as #2, and “picking up your things” in as #3. I think that nagging is the result of frustration, when you feel that your significant other is not listening to you. Is there a better alternative?
Why do people nag their significant others?
Forty percent of men say it’s “habit.”
The #1 reason women nag is to “vent their frustration.”
Married women develop a different motivation to nag; #1 reason among the married set is “It’s effective: He doesn’t respond unless I ask multiple times.”
How did you figure out a way to have a ‘nag-free’ relationship?
