10 Things Women Will Never Understand About Men
Men and women have confused each other since time immemorial. At times, it truly seems like we are from different planets. However, even though gender equality has come a long way in the last several decades, there are some things that will always remain mysteries. Here are ten things women will never understand about men.
1. Poor Attention to Detail
When it comes to the little details, women are classically more attuned. For instance, have you ever asked a man to clean the bathroom, only to notice he didn’t clean under the toilet seat?
2. Emotionally Closed-Off
As the more emotional gender, most women don’t get why most men have such a hard time sharing their feelings with us. Sadly, this is largely a product of social norms dictating that men have to be emotional rocks.
3. Mr. Fix It
Most of us love it when a man fixes the car or kitchen sink. Unfortunately, they also typically feel the need to fix any emotion-related problems we’re having. Men are natural problem-solvers, but sometimes we just want you to listen, not try to make it better.
4. Easily Distracted
All of us can become distracted, but it seems to come more easily for men. That thing you asked him to do 45 minutes ago? He still hasn’t done it because he got sidetracked with something else.
5. Multi-tasking Mayhem
If it ever seems like men have a hard time multi-tasking, that’s because, in many ways, they do. According to recent research, men struggled more than women when switching between tasks. However, when it came to spatial tasks, men are actually more adept than women.
6. Finding Things
Is your man ever astonished that you can find the items he lost, even though you haven’t touched them? For some reason, women appear better able to keep tabs on every item in the house at any given time.
7. Dr. Mom
When a man is feeling well, he’s as strong and independent as ever. Once he comes down with something, however, all bets are off. He’ll often regress into a little boy who wants you to take care of him while he’s sick.
8. Closeness for All Occasions
Closeness is great, but for men, it seems to be a panacea. Whether he’s just been chewed out by his boss or his favorite sports team lost the game, you can bet that he considers love-making to be the best medicine.
9. Not Answering Calls
Many of us despise talking on the phone, but men can be much worse about it. Even if you’re the one calling, don’t be surprised when he doesn’t pick up or if he fails to call you back.
10. Minor Adjustments
Most women are baffled as to why men feel the need to adjust themselves so often. That said, we lack the same equipment, so this is something we can never truly understand.
