“Men are from Mars, women are from Venus” implies that men and women are from totally different planets. How extreme can they be? Well, men will always think that women are complicated species while women will think that men are too simple. Here are the 15 things women will never understand about men.
1. Men are unable to remember details
Well, to be fair, the way men emphasise on ‘details’ are different from women. Don’t expect them to remember which ear rings you wore on your first date or when was the first time the both of you held hands because they are only great at remembering sports statistics or the number of girls they have dated.
2. Men are so in love with gadgets and sports
I can bet that men impulse buy more than women do. Maybe it’s because of peer pressure. For gadgets, they will pre-order and make sure they get the latest phone immediately after launch. Jersey is a fashion to them – they have a full collection of jerseys of their favourite sports team and they won’t let you touch any of them!
3. Men treat their cars as (more) important as (than) their wives
First, they need new tires, which then mean new rims. Then they need to get seat covers and LED headlights, and subwoofers and blah blah blah… wonder if they will spend as much on their girlfriends/wives?
4. Men cannot multitask
For many of them, eating popcorn and watching a movie at the same time is about as far as they get. It’s pretty uncommon for men to be able to juggle four to five tasks at the same time. But when they set out to do something, they will give it 100% of their attention and make sure it gets done right. This, we shall give a little bit of credits to them!
5. Men forget about sleep and food when they are on video games
Men will probably think that we are missing out all the excitements but the point that we couldn’t understand is about the way they value "excitements". They are willing to give up sleep and food for the "excitements" of attempting the highest score on the chart. Someone please tell us why?!
6. Men feel that shopping is a torture to them
Women see shopping like an enjoyable experience and happy that "I saved 50% on these outfits". On the other hand, men’s logic will tell them that "You would have saved even more if you didn't go." Guys, it’s the satisfaction of owning the things that we like that counts! Wouldn’t this way more exciting than playing video games at home?
7. Men like to keep everything to themselves
Maybe they think that women don’t have the ability to keep secret. So men prefer not to reveal all their ups and downs to their girlfriends/ wives. Come to think of it, if they continue to do this for a longer period, there’s a high chance that they will convert all negative emotions (such as sadness, embarrassment or jealousy) into anger. Is keeping everything to themselves still a wise move then?
8. Men can sleep through a crying baby
Sometimes we really have to salute them. Once they get into their deep sleep, nothing can wake up them. Not to mention a crying baby, I bet even earthquake also will not affect them. I wonder how they manage to do that!
9. Men are not observant
When you are not in a good mood, they couldn’t feel it. When you are sick and your face look pale, they didn’t notice. When you are struggling to carry a large and heavy grocery bag, they didn’t realise that you actually need some help. So what do they actually observe?
10. Men can’t pee straight into the toilet without missing
You know, the seat is pretty gross! Please be considerate when you are using the toilet. AIM PRECISELY!
11. Men are so obsessed with boobs and long legs
It’s because they don’t have them that they like them so much. But warn you! If you’re too obsessed and keep staring at them, you might end up getting very harsh remarks from the girls.
12. Men behave like a baby when they are sick
Men regress to their age of 5 (or younger) when they fall sick. It always seemed that men are just not strong enough and really just want to be taken care of while they're sick. To a certain extent, they complained so much as though they were giving birth to quintuplets with how much pain they were supposedly in.
13. Men always think that women are complicated
Most men seem to find women to be complete mysteries. They can never understand why ‘yes’ implies ‘no’ or why ‘I’m okay’ implies ‘I’m in a bad mood’. A lot of complications come from the fact that women tend to ‘think’ with their hearts rather than with their minds. They tend to become emotional very fast. Emotions make women more complicated. When men put a little bit more effort to understand women, then every woman will seem a bit ‘less complicated’.
15. Men act differently before and after marriage
Men can do anything for you when they are dating you. But the opposite case happens when you got married. They take for granted that their wives will take care of everything. But bear in mind, as children come along they need to be cherished and loved but this should never be more than your wives. Why? Because when they're grown and gone, it's back to just two people again. So, please treat your wives as the most important person in your life and love her more!
Even though gender equality has come a long way in the past decades, there are some things that will still remain mysteries. We are different individuals – we think, analyse and act in our own ways. This makes each and every one of us special!
