27 Aspects Of A Man’s Life That Women Are Completely Unaware Of

How much effort we have to put into dating. We’re expected to make the first move, plan the first date (and probably subsequent dates), go in for the kiss, hold her hand, invite her over, etc. If we do it too soon, we risk coming off as a creep and ruining it. If we do it too late, we risk coming off as unconfident or uninterested, and we ruin it. Plus, the threshold for too soon/too late is different for every woman, and you don’t have any way of knowing what it is until you go for it. Sure you could ask, but guess what, a lot of women are turned off by that too, and you have no way of knowing until you go for that either.

That we just like being alone sometimes. My girlfriend blames me for not giving her enough attention or not loving her as much as I should, but god, i just want to sit and watch tv without paying attention to anything else for once.

Behind all the macho, behind all the alpha male wannabe impulses, and behind every emotion-burying look we give off, men want to be loved just like women do. We want to be complimented. Even though we may put on a show about how we don’t care about all of that “mushy stuff,” if you give it to us in just the right way, we’ll melt right into your hands like putty. It’s society that says we’re not allowed to feel, not us men, but we all play by society’s rules to some extent.

When you look at her face and try to imagine how her boobs look like.

We spend a huge amount of time and mental energy on how to fix stuff. Even if it’s not broken. Or if it is only hypothetically broken. Or if it could potentially be broken. Not just things, but also interactions with people. We’re always trying to fix something.
