A Redditor shared, “The hair, it’s everywhere! In the drain, in the laundry, and sometimes in the food I make. It’s everywhere, but you don’t see it until it somehow catches your attention.”

A Redditor commented, “At some point, they develop some sort of calming, gentle warmness. I didn’t see it until I was in a real adult relationship, but more than one partner just had an effect of almost untangling my brain just by their warm presence.”

This user shared, “Just how much the menstrual cycle affects them. I wasn’t aware of what women go through during their menstrual cycle, and it was really eye-opening after being in a few of my mature relationships.”

One Redditor said, “How fun they can make the small things in life. Ever gone out with your girlfriend to get Starbucks? It is such a fun experience. Just watching her making an effort to get ready for that small trip, hearing her talk about the most random things as you are walking, and then her ordering for you and her, customizing the drink in a way you didn’t even know you liked.”

A top-liked comment said, “How they pick up on little things, like moods, small items/details, conversations, etc. How delightful they are when they are happy.”

Small Things

This Redditor commented, “They notice small things. I was in a deep conversation with my first girlfriend and she told me I am into long hair girls. I didn’t even notice that (it was subconscious). I never sat down and wrote out a list of all the criteria of what I’m into.”


This user said, “How lively and affectionate they become when you make yourself available to them.”

Not Always Fine

A user also added, “Don’t take “everything’s fine” for an answer, be nice – but peel the onion. They hide the stuff that turns their heart black sometimes because they’ve been raised to keep the peace. Help them through it, and the sky’s the limit.”

One Redditor had this to say, “When you go out, how many people look/stare at her. The first time we walked in the park, out of the 100 people we passed, I’d say she got 85% of the looks. It surprised me and made me realize that if that happened to me, I’d be a lot more self-conscious, concerned about my safety, and half afraid to venture out alone.”

Toilet Humor

This Redditor added, “That they aren’t mythical creatures. You can treat them like normal humans. A lot of women are more crude and disgusting than men.”

Comfortable Living Space

Finally, a Redditor said, “Women have an apt for creating comfortable environments — they know how to turn a house into a home. The last woman I dated turned the place she rented into her own vibe within less than a week—paintings, busts, flowers, candles, music, etc.”When it comes to getting our first girlfriend or understanding women, Redditors were in for some surprises!
