Women are complex and multifaceted beings. They are strong, resilient, and capable of great things. However, they are also often misunderstood and underestimated.
A netizen recently asked men, “What is something you learned about women way too late in life?”. We’ve compiled the best responses below!
They Really Appreciate Men Who Cook
“I learned to cook simply so I could prepare good meals for myself. Turns out that goes really far with women and it wasn’t even my original intention so it’s…. so… easy.”, said one.
“As someone whose boyfriend is completely inept in the kitchen, this is so, so true! Even just having a handful of recipes you can do well is amazing.”, another added.
They Just Want Us To Listen, At Times
“Lots of times she needs to be heard. She’s not looking for a solution, just a listener while she figures out the solution.
Now when she starts with ‘I have a problem’ I ask ‘Am I listening or am I fixing?’ and she’ll tell me what she needs. If she says listening, all I do is listen and ask questions. If she says fixing, I listen but offer solutions.”
They Are Humans, Too
“That they’re people too. Not that I objectified them, but I had them on a pedestal when I really shouldn’t have.
That mindset helps make it easier to talk to them.”
Like Men, They Can Sometimes Be Super Awful
“That they can be just as bad people as guys.”, said one.
“Yeah, I don’t know why people thought otherwise. Women can be mean but it’s more psychological and harder to overcome.”, another added.
Periods Aren’t the Same For All Women
“Honestly, periods aren’t the same for every woman, and how debilitating they can be!”
Their Definition Of ‘Hot’ Is Entirely Different
“For them, a guy being ‘hot’ is more of a holistic weighted net. As opposed to how we say it, which is just good looks.
They’re much more willing to overlook bad looks than we think if you’re doing well in other areas of your life.”
They Prefer Men Who Take The Lead
“That most women prefer a man who is able and willing to lead, make decisions and be resourceful. Also SOME like to be told what to do so they can hand over the burden of responsibility every now and then.”
Women Are Not Something You Possess
“That there is no such thing as stealing a crush. The girl in question is also a person who makes her own choices. It’s not as simple as her simply going with the biggest peacock tail waver.
If she says yes to you, odds are she would have said no to him and vice versa. Women are not something you possess.”
Falling In Love With Immature Women Is A Bad Decision
“Don’t bother falling in love with the immature ones. Seen so many guys fall in love with immature women and it ended so poorly.”
When They Ask You To Pick One Thing, Just PICK ONE!
“When they ask you to pick between two (or three things), if you don’t care about which one they choose, then instead of saying I don’t care, just pick one.
For example, my wife will ask what dress or shoes she should wear, and I used to say something like they are both fine, which only leads to more questions. Now I just randomly pick one and say that’s looks really good on you.”
Ones Who Believe They Never Made A Mistake
“Beware of any woman who believes she has made no mistakes that warrant an apology.”
“If they’re good-looking and fun to be around, they can lie about anything and people will believe them by default.”
They Don’t Like Us Being Pushy
“When they look like they are mad at you or frustrated or whatever. Don’t start pushing with ‘what’s wrong’.
Wait until her mood is better and if your relationship has good communication then she’ll tell you know herself what was wrong and what made her feel the way she did.”
If They Don’t Find It Funny, Don’t You Dare Laugh
“When a woman says something’s not funny, you’d better not laugh it off.”
Divorce And Absent Dads Are Horrible For Women
“Divorce and absent dads are horrible for women. When a dad says he’s going to pick up his daughter and doesn’t show up it crushes her for life. She waits at the front door and the jerk never shows up.
Unfortunately, no matter how solid you are and how trustworthy you are as a partner, she will always treat you like you are not there for her. If she invites you to do something and you are busy, she will hate you for it, just like she hates her dad.”
