After years and years of living in coexistence, it seems that women will persist in being a constant mystery to the men that they’re around. Men never understand because maybe they’re just inherently illogical and irrational idiots who are only capable of comprehending things among themselves.
It seems that they never understand women in the way that women want to be understood. It’s as if there’s a secret language that exists between the two and only the women species are literate. Why is this so? Why are women so hard for men to understand? Especially when it comes to these common examples:
1. When women say I’m fine
When girls say I’m fine, they’re usually not. You should always take that answer or response with a grain of salt. While a girl doesn’t necessarily expect a man to be a mind reader, he has to have some sense of empathy and sensitivity enabling him to identify when something is wrong.
2. When women say that they need some space.
They don’t want space over a prolonged period of time. They just need some time to themselves to recollect and gather their emotions. Space also doesn’t mean that you get a free pass to cheat and be unfaithful. Just give your girl some time to breathe on her own and wait for her to come back to you.
3. Women aren’t just overreacting all the time.
They’re not. Women are just naturally analytical beings. They are reacting to situations just fine and it’s you who are underreacting. You have to approach every situation rationally and always try to take things from multiple perspectives so you don’t end up blindsided by anything or anyone.
4. Women know the truth ALWAYS.
They like to watch you squirm and catch you in your own web of lies. They will watch you struggle and struggle to struggle with the truth, but in the end, you will always end up on the losing side. They are also very good at telling when you aren’t being honest with them.
5. Women’s fantasies.
Women love fantasies. It’s why they’re always forcing you to watch every Nicholas Sparks movie that comes out. They want you to live up to their idealized versions of you. They want some spark and wonder in their lives. They want their life to resemble a fairy tale as much as possible and you can do that if you just put some more effort into it.
6. Women want to know how men feel.
Don’t settle for 3-word answers when she asks you a question. Let her know about your thoughts and feelings. Make her feel like you’re comfortable with expressing yourself whenever you’re with her and that you’re not ashamed of being yourself when she’s around.
7. When men don’t remember the significant moments or dates.
If your mind really is as dense as it seems, then maybe you should start writing things down so you’ll never forget. The important dates and moments are important for a reason. You should be able to remember your first date spot or the first time you kissed. These are significant relationship milestones that should forever be etched into your brain.
8. Free drinks don’t mean a free pass.
When a woman accepts drinks from you at a bar, that doesn’t mean she’s interested in you. It might just mean that she appreciates the drink. When you buy a girl a drink at a bar, don’t expect her to automatically go home with you at the end of the night. A woman’s love and affection are worth so much more than just a free margarita.
9. Women still appreciate the gentleman culture.
Chivalry is not dead and your girl is the first person who will attest to that fact. You should always be practicing the art of being a gentleman without fail. Simple gestures like allowing her to walk ahead of you, opening the door for her, or giving her your arm when crossing the street are very important.
10. Women will not love gifts.
It’s just that simple. Even when she tells you that she doesn’t want gifts for Valentine’s or Christmas, you still better get her that gift. It doesn’t have to be grand or expensive. It just has to be meaningful and given with love and utmost sincerity.
11. Replies during texting are mandatory.
Women don’t care if you’re winning that video game when she texts you, you need to drop everything and reply to her. She requires your attention and a true gentleman would never leave her woman in want.
12. A Ponytail Band on the wrist is just preparation.
A strong girl should always be ready to take on whatever obstacle is thrown her way. She never knows when she needs to get her hair dirty and tie her hair in a ponytail and that’s why she always has a band ready.
13. Women like asking men for advice on their outfits.
When a girl asks you for advice about what she’s wearing, then you should give her your honest thoughts. She doesn’t just want to hear you look great, babe! even though you don’t mean it.
