Things Guys Do That Girls Don’t Understand

10 Things Guys Do That Girls Don’t Understand


Men really are from Mars.

1. Saying the word “dude” or “man” after every other sentence.

“How’s it going dude?” “Where have you been, man?” It seems as though men use these words more frequently than any other words in the English language.

2. Refusing to express their feelings.

Unfortunately, there is a stereotype that if a man displays his feelings, he’s weak. However, this is very untrue. Many women are attracted to sensitive men! Nobody is a mind-reader, and we can’t fix any problems if you don’t communicate. Speak up.

3. Constantly needing to turn everyday activities into full-blown competitions.

Everything with men seems to be a competition. Who can eat the hottest hot wings? Who can score the highest on a video game? Who can find the best parking spot in the parking lot?

4. Not answering text messages in a timely manner.

Texting a quick response only takes a few seconds. It’s especially confusing to women when they see their guy active on social media, yet he hasn’t responded to their messages. Yes, we may be reading into it way too much, but we’re emotional creatures. We’ll settle for a smiley face or unicorn emoji. Give us something!

5. How they are always hungry.

A guy can eat three hamburgers, and ten minutes later when his friend comes by with pizza, he’s somehow hungry again. If only women could eat half as much as men can.

6.  Why they hate shopping.

How many times have you heard a man say he hates shopping? Ask a man to go shopping and he will roll his eyes, groan, and come up with a million reasons why he can’t go. Mention BestBuy, and he’s the first one in the car. Hmmmm….I thought men hated shopping.

7. Why they assume women have absolutely zero knowledge about cars.

Every time a woman is broken down on the side of the road, men automatically assume the woman is in desperate need of help. In reality, many girls are great with cars and know exactly what they are doing. Not every woman is a damsel in distress.

8. Why they describe every one of their ex-girlfriends as “crazy.”

I don’t even bother asking men why their previous relationship ended anymore. Ninety-nine percent of the time, the answer is, “She’s crazy.” How ironic that every woman in the world is completely nuts.

9. Why they’re obsessed with sports.

I know that if any one of my guy friends were to miss their favorite team’s football game, they would be emotionally distressed. Why are guys so infatuated with watching other guys tackle each other over a ball? The worst part is that guys continue to discuss the game days after it is over. And when the season ends you’d think someone died. It never ends.

10. Why they refuse to order “girly” drinks at the bar.

If the drink is pink or blue, served in a martini glass, or comes with a little umbrella, most men won’t go near it. The chances of men ordering a Cosmo or Sex on the Beach is slim to none. “I’ll just have beer, dude.”
