“Men’s friendships. I know almost every detail of my friends’ lives and men don’t know the date of their best friends’ wedding.” 

“I feel like friendships between men are usually because of shared interests or a shared sense of humor, while women tend to have friendships with women who have similar personalities or similar lived experiences.

“If it is a public bathroom in a restaurant or bar, we do this for safety. Not that we think that there are men lurking in the ladies’ bathroom, but a lot of guys if they are eyeing you up use the opportunity when you are walking from your table to the bathroom to approach you. Their whole goal is to catch you alone. If you aren’t alone, then they typically don’t approach. Also, we chitchat and gossip in the bathroom with friends. We borrow each other’s lipstick or hairspray, and sometimes borrow a tampon if we have to.”

“Being mad at their SO because in a dream they cheated on them.” Said one. 

“My ex was perpetually worried I was cheating on her because she’d wake up during these dreams.

“Women, in general, can switch from “horny” to “Nope” just like that, like a switch. If some information comes up or the situation uncomfortably changes: that’s it. 

I mean: as a man, I can also lose the mood or rethink that making love with that particular person or in that particular situation is bad, it’s just a process. A long, non-fail-safe, bendy process.”

“I genuinely don’t see myself getting into relationships anymore because of this, women just don’t care about boundaries and I’ve been trying to see if I can just be gay at this point.” Another added.

A bit of an edge example, but I had an ex that would flip out if I liked another girl’s pics, yet she’d constantly upload selfies to get likes. This crap made no sense to me at the time.”
