Maintaining a relationship can be pretty challenging and this is sometimes due to the fact that men and women are different from each other.
This can cause some misunderstanding and confusion especially when one is too impatient to see things from the other’s perspective.
A number of men have taken to social media to talk about the things women get wrong about men and it is pretty eye-opening.
Here are 10 of the most popular ones.
1. Men like to snuggle
One man says, “For some reason, there is a majority opinion that enjoying those things makes you less of a man, but what is more manly than having a beautiful woman snuggle up to you in bed, that is the best feeling in the world.”
2. Men want to be hit on
A commenter said, “Most guys will be happy that you initiated.”
3. Men are emotional too
On the issue that woman feel like men are too emotionless, someone says, “Women need to understand that for some men it’s not a simple matter to access our emotions because we haven’t been trained to express and deal with them our whole lives like you may have been.”
4. Men want to open up but they want to trust you first
As an extension for point 3 above, men would actually be willing to open up if they know you are really listening and would truly understand. One says, “I also wish my girlfriend knew how much I wanted to share with her if I knew she was listening.”
5. ‘Nothing’ could mean ‘Nothing’
One big difference between men and women that often cause rifts is the issue of saying what’s on their mind. When a man asks a woman what’s wrong and she says “nothing,” there is almost a hundred percent chance that something is wrong. But the reverse is not the case with men. If you ask him what is on his mind and he says, “nothing,” he actually means it. One man says, “When you ask us what we’re thinking about and we say nothing, we mean it. Sometimes there really is nothing going on in our heads. Well, you are thinking SOMETHING, just not anything important or memorable.”
Men, what are the other things you wish women understand about you.
