Men and women often come from different planets regarding communication and understanding. While we share this world, sometimes we speak different languages. This is especially true regarding the complexities of the male mind.

Here are a few things men think is hard for women to understand

We Don’t Keep Records, We Live

Women, accustomed to organization and detail, may struggle to comprehend this seeming lack of memory, interpreting it as forgetfulness or disregard. 

“When you ask me how my day was or what I did today…nothing in my day usually stands out as special, so I just don’t remember. I usually don’t remember what I do; I just live.” Said one. 

“I can 100% relate to that. My mother always asks me how school was, and I have nothing to tell but if I don’t tell her anything, she will keep trying to squeeze something out of me.” Another added. 

We Don’t Keep Checking You Out 24/7

Most women think men tend to check women all day long. A user says, “I’m seriously not checking you out whenever you walk by the office. I turn my head for near everything that enters my periphery; you’re not that special.”

It’s Not You; It’s Us

A simple message emerges in a world filled with obsession: respect the need for space. Sometimes, it’s not about fixing things or trying harder but simply allowing someone the time and space they need to process and heal.

“When we say we need time or space, that’s exactly what we need. It’s not code for “you need to try harder.” Said one. 

“Coming in late, but this. I said this to my ex because mentally I wasn’t doing the best, so she thought the best thing to do would be to come to my house to cheer me up.” Another added. 

Love You To The Moon & Back

The depths of love sometimes defy words. Here, two voices echo the same struggle: expressing their profound love for their families yet finding language inadequate. “It is hard to explain how much I love her and the kids to my wife. I feel like words are not enough, and I work a lot, but I wish my feelings could just be transferred so she understands…” Said one. 

We Need You To Make The First Move, Sometimes

The unspoken desire of men for women to initiate romantic advances often creates confusion and missed opportunities. Women, unsure of their partner’s true feelings, hesitate to act, leading to a stalemate where neither feels comfortable taking the first step. 

“I don’t always want to be the one that initiates intimacy. It makes me feel like a creep.” Said one. 

“Man, that resonates in my 7-year relationship. I don’t think I need more than one hand to count the number of times she initiated lovemaking. I miss the feeling of being wanted.” Another added. 

The Specifics Of The Nod Code

A silent language of greetings, the “nod code” holds subtle nuances that not everyone grasps. 

“The specifics of the nod code. It’s easy to say “up if you know them; down if you don’t,” but the exact meaning of the downward nod is hard to translate. It’s seeing them, acknowledging them, and saying that neither of us has any issue with each other.” Said one. 

“It’s a social construct, and it really irritates me when people don’t respond to a nod, or they just completely ignore me.” Another added. 

We Can Be Best Friends & Have No Idea What’s Going On In Each Other’s Life

Best friends, companions through thick and thin, yet mysteries remain. Men are comfortable maintaining a good friendship without knowing everything about them. 

“Why, I don’t know what the hell my best friend is up to in life, even after hanging out with him all day.” Said one. 

“I have friends I have known for 20+ years, and I have no idea what their job is. We live in different states, but keep a group chat going on Slack. I don’t ask. My wife thinks it’s hilarious.” Another added. 

We Can’t Read Your Minds

The expectation that men should automatically understand women’s unspoken desires can lead to frustration and resentment in relationships.  A user says, “1) That I am simply not clairvoyant.  You need to tell me what it is you really want.  2) If you’re disappointed in something, say so. I can take it – as long as it’s not #1.”
