I am wondering what are things (language points) that make you sound like a girl in Chinese? 

I guess 讨厌( tao3yan4  hate) is something make man like a woman, but don't know why, just girls will laugh when a man saying " 讨厌”, it's so interesting for me.

my teacher always said ”好的“ was exceptionally girlish, although I've heard guys use it too.


Another one is 陪


really? From my side i think 好的 is just a normal word, it's not girlish,陪 as well i think.

In Taiwan it's common to hear 對啊 as a reply, and it is used by both men and women. I would caution foreign males when using this as a reply, as it can come off very girly. When you do use it, say it with a neutral or lower pitch. Otherwise, you definitely will sound like a girl.
