EVER wondered why people who say they are in love attach the term crazy to it? That’s probably because people in love usually do crazy things to maintain the emotional ties that exist between themselves and their significant others.
Women are notorious for doing the stupidest things when it comes to securing a love connection and below we highlight some of the craziest things they do for the men in their lives.
1. Empty their bank accounts: From getting him the flashiest car, to buying him the latest designs, some women have been extremely generous when it comes to bearing their men gifts. Some even go further than that and give the men complete access to their bank accounts, without any guarantee that the men will be committed to them for a lifetime.
2. Watch a match without having the slightest interest in the game: While there is nothing wrong in hanging out with your beau, some women will tell you that watching a three-hour Test match for his sake is like torture.
3. Isolate family and friends: Some women not only forget themselves when they hook up with a new guy, but they also forget their friends and families too. When the ultimatum is given to choose between the men and their families, many women choose the men.
4. Get a tattoo of his name: We’re sure you’ve heard that love can be painful, and this has never seemed more true than when we consider a woman who will tattoo her partner’s name on her body. Sadly, these tattoos often outlast the relationships.
5. Allow themselves to be punching bags: In some circles, a man is still expected to show his love by beating his woman. Unfortunately, some women still hold strong to this view and will give the men the benefit of the doubt when they profess their “undying love”.
6. Squeeze into a size ‘0’ to hear him whistle: No woman wants to look bad for a special date and so some, in a bid to look sexy, don’t have a problem squeezing into dresses two sizes smaller to get the attention of their suitors. Unfortunately, this sometimes works against them.
7. Have a child to keep him: Some women still believe that bearing a child for a man is the best way to keep him faithful or to make him commit. Even while not feeling prepared for a child, some take the plunge into motherhood for the sake of their man.
8. Fight for his love: It’s not uncommon to hear of a woman getting a serious whopping from another in a fight for a man. We’re still not sure why the woman should be the one wearing the bruises for the man’s indiscretion, but they do it anyway!
9. Fake it: Although many men would want to have you believe that they are the real Casanova in the bedroom, many women know that this is far from the truth. But in an effort to not burst their man’s bubble, many women have no problem faking orgasms.
10. Share him with other women, and go bareback: Some women go with the general notion that it is better to share him rather than not have him at all. Crazy is what they are! Still others, even while knowing the men are unfaithful, choose to adhere to the men’s wishes to have sex without a condom.
