Bad social habits are those things we do that can be particularly annoying to those around us. They demonstrate a lack of etiquette and show that we’re not quite as cultured as we should be. Needless to say, they affect how we’re perceived by everyone around us and can affect our ability to make new friends and whatnot. As such, it is important for us to avoid certain bad social habits.
Having said that, it’s really not quite possible to avoid something you don’t know. That’s like swinging an ax at a tree in the dark. So, we’ve taken out time to get together the bad social habits you shouldn’t be found with. They are:
Sending unsolicited lewd pictures to female friends
Compared to everything else on the list, this is perhaps the worst thing you can do. Not only is it considered an extremely bad habit, but it’s also considered sexual harassment, and it can get you in a lot of trouble if you get caught. That is beside the amount of discomfort it can cause the recipient. No matter how close you think you are, never send these types of pictures to your female friends, especially without consent.
Being too loud
Usually, you’d describe a charismatic person as that guy in the room with a nice smile and a booming, yet heartwarming voice. However, there’s a difference between being charismatic and just being plain annoying. You’ll be crossing the line when you’re constantly being excessively loud in public gatherings.
Playing music on speaker
You really don’t need to make everyone listen to your music, no matter how good you think it is. Next time you’re on a bus or in a class where the teacher isn’t around yet, or any other form of public space, keep your music to yourself. If you really do need to listen to something, use a pair of earphones.
You can’t go to a restaurant and eat in a manner that makes people become embarrassed to be seen with you. So, one bad habit you should always strive to avoid is eating poorly. This includes everything from talking with your mouth full to picking droplets of food off the table and even cleaning your hands against your clothes.
Always talking about yourself
No matter how interesting you think you are, there’s someone who is relatively more accomplished. As such, you shouldn’t be talking too much about yourself. Besides the fact that it’s a bad social habit, it can get quite boring to listen to.
