All women will one day go through the eternal struggle that is trying to understand men.
Sadly, gender biases are real, but coming from a man, it seems like women give themselves extra hurdles that don’t really matter in the quest to understand the way we think.
Here are some things you could do to get to know us better:
Learn to Differentiate Between Being Serious and Talking Nonsense
A big part of being a guy is our ability to tell jokes and talk nonsense.
We are proud of that ability.
However, I have often seen women mistake light comments that should be jokes as serious statements or intentional swipes of personal flaws.
This dilemma opens the door to a series of useless and confusing arguments.
Ladies, use context clues.
Dissect the context of conversations and the tone in which we speak.
If an honest statement comes up, you should immediately feel it the way we say it.
Don’t be upset with us as we can always be joking.
It’s our trivial way of having fun and passing the time.
However, a mature man knows how to differentiate between situations in which this type of behavior is appropriate or inappropriate.
Here’s a secret: Men would say the craziest things just to avoid arguments.
As we are in confrontation with nature, we don’t like to argue about things we don’t care about, because we know it’s just a temporary temper tantrum.
If you changed your argumentation tactics, maybe we’d stop lying to you about where we were yesterday.
It’s not that we don’t care about your feelings, we’d rather not deal with your reaction.
Stop driving us crazy, it’s not like stopping an increase in behavior you don’t approve of.
In 2020, everything can be explained calmly and fairly, in a civilized way.
Our friends are our main core.
We are rarely able to run things without their company or input.
You might hate them, but they’re a centerpiece to day-to-day operations.
We’d rather hang out with ONLY our close friends than deal with a bunch of promiscuous, self-loathing women, so relax when we tell you “we’re with the boys”.
Regardless of how you feel about his friends, learn to differentiate that, at the end of the day, the collective opinion does not represent who we are.
They don’t care
It is scientifically proven that women are beings motivated by emotions, but men, on the other hand, are not.
The things we really care about are precisely defined and only a few things outside this realm trigger any emotion.
Don’t be upset if we don’t mind.
We’re not idiots, it’s just that there are other things we’d rather spend our energy on.
