15 Common Things Men And Women Don’t Get About Each Other

The notion that men don’t understand women and women don’t understand men is a common stereotype perpetuating misunderstandings and generalizations between the sexes. While it is true that men and women may have different perspectives and experiences shaped by societal norms and expectations, it is important to recognize that each person is unique. Communication and empathy will always be key in bridging this gap of understanding.

He Can Just Exist

Won’t Pick Up On Hints

A second user added, “Men don’t and will normally not pick up on your hints! I straight up didn’t realize a woman was flirting with me when she sent Snapchats in her underwear to me.”

Sitting In Peace

A third user said, “When men sit in their cars after a long day at work, we aren’t plotting anything. We aren’t up to something. We just sit in peace.”

Fear Of Balding

A top-liked comment said, “How excruciating period pain can be, but it happens so regularly that you can’t always take time off work, so you just have to get on with life while feeling like your insides are shredding.”

One user said, “Guys…You can use cheap shampoo because you have short hair, and that hair is always brand new and healthy! I need quality (expensive) hair products for my long hair because that hair is YEARS old!”

Fun Abuse

This person mentioned, “How men can physically, mentally, and emotionally abuse each other and find it funny. I’ve heard my boyfriend say some wicked a**** things to his friends, and they all laugh about it.”

Male Dominated Fields

A top-liked comment said, “How much it sucks to be a woman working in a male-dominated field. I work I.T., and this week had a man who believed I didn’t know what I was talking about and asked for a man to fix his computer.

Emotional Baggage

Someone added, “If men shared their emotional baggage with people, we’d be considered burden and weak. Nobody really wants to hear it, not friends, family, spouse, sh****t, even our pets will walk off.”

Clothing & Make-Up

A poster commented, “We, men, in truth, do not give a s****t about makeup or wearing the same clothes multiple times. Seriously stop obsessing over what you wear or that you have to put make-up on for us. I don’t understand the obsession.”

The First Move

This person said, “It is not only OK but welcomed for a woman to make the first move. Men are so programmed to think that making the first move is a scary thing, and the whole not being able to pick up on hints things doesn’t help. Make the first move. Rarely will you miss!”

⅓ Women

A commenter stated, “It’s really difficult for men to use real dating apps, not hook-up apps, but finding a date is really difficult. Especially when ⅔ of the users are men, and ⅓ are women.”

This person mentioned, “Being lonely as a man. I understand that women can be lonely too. I get that. However, all a woman has to do to fix her loneliness is to download an app or go outside. She will be noticed, however, for a guy. Unless the man is tall, rich, and handsome, once he is 30 and not married or has a long-term BF/GF, the loneliness can destroy you mentally. Women are noticed by just existing.”

Needs A Man To Be Taken Seriously

One user recalled, “The fact that women get talked down to constantly. It gets to the point that you have to have a man for them to talk to because, apparently, women don’t know s****t. I am way more technically and financially savvy than my male partner, but I still need him with me to be taken seriously.”

Personal Choice

Finally, a user shared, “We don’t care if you don’t like long nails or some other fashion decisions. Fashion is a personal choice, not always about seeking a relationship or a date.”
