Ladies, agreed?

Words can sometimes defy the meanings behind them. We might say one thing while actually wanting something else. It’s quite a paradox we present for our listeners by saying something what we want and intending to want something else. Now when it comes to men, there can be found quite a significant difference between what they say they want and what they actually want.

So here we’ve briefly made a list of 11 things men claim to be their wants and such, which actually have a different meaning hidden beneath them. If you hear a man say either or all of them, keep in mind what he actually means instead of falling for just his words, and choose to act accordingly.

  1. What they say they want vs what they actually want: “I’m just looking for someone who knows what she wants in her life” vs “I don’t know what I’m looking for in my life so I don’t want someone who’s as clueless as me.”

When a man’s unsure of what he himself aspires to achieve in life, he wouldn’t want to carry the same burden of someone else, someone who does not have any ideal goal themselves. It might make them feel like have to help them figure out their wants and how to achieve them…all the while they themselves have no time left for themselves.

  1. What they say they want vs what they actually want: “I hope to end up with a nice girl” vs “I hope I find someone who values love as much as the not-so-nice ones.”

Men might look for that ideal dream girls but that does not mean they’re eliminating the value of good sex from their bucket list of things they are looking for in that girl. They sure say they want some nice girl to go out with but look for the kind who’s all nice and sweet but still craves sex just as much as the not-so-nice or somewhat mean girls do.
