The classic phrase goes: “Men are from Mars, women are from Venus.” Many philosophical concepts can be interpreted from this, but all we need to know is that women and men are vastly different. Both sexes will eagerly admit that relationships would be much smoother if we understood how the the other sex thinks and functions.
“Why are men so sloppy?” “I can’t understand why he just won’t talk to me!” These are just a few of the head scratches that women often discuss over a Long Island Iced Tea.
So, I wanted to get to the bottom of it. I asked women in bars and all over the street what they wished they could comprehend about the male species. Then, I presented the concerns to a pool of men and asked them give me an honest answer. Yes, ladies, we have answers! Here’s what most women want to know from men to help women understand them better.
I wish I could know what causes a man to just turn off their feelings and go completely cold turkey on a relationship.
“Usually it will never be just one thing. Once we realize we’re no longer invested, it will be for multiple reasons. We have’t gone ‘cold turkey’…it takes time. We probably just [prolonged] the breakup because it sucks for us, too.” – Alex, 24
What’s so awesome about video games like Halo and Grand Theft Auto? I don’t get it…
“[We] can’t do that kind of stuff in real life! They’re a good distraction from a bad day. You know I don’t want to be bothered when there’s a controller in my hand.”
I just wish I could understand why guys can be so frustrating. If the trash is full, why do we need to ask for it to be done – I’m just using that as an example, though.
“Ha! We’re idiots. But we also aren’t mind readers. I used to wish that my ex-girlfriend would understand that about 98 percent of the time I needed for her to literally spell it out for me.” – Ben, 25
I honestly wish I could understand why it’s so hard for a guy to contact us after making a connection.
“We are waiting for them to do it, probably.” – Logan, 26
I would like to understand why some men won’t express themselves if they really care. Like why are they so hesitant?”
“We will for the right girl. Maybe she wasn’t with the right guy.” – Cory, 25
