How Little They Know About Their Friends
Women find it weird how men can be friends yet know nothing about their friends. But one user explains why this happens, “If we have a couple of things in common, we are basically best friends. We see no need to ask about the small details.”
Watches Movies With Zero Context About the Plot
Men are also okay watching movies without reading the plot or watching episodes randomly rather than in order. They are also comfortable watching a movie midway with no questions asked.
Apprehensive About Receiving Gifts
“Can I not gift guys things for fun?” wonders a lady. “It happens so rarely that we don’t know how to handle it,” answers a male commentator. “And we don’t know if there’s some hidden message,” adds another.
How They Make Friends With Everyone
It’s amazing how men don’t stay strangers for long. Sometimes, one conversation about shared interests is all they need to become friends.
Say “It’s Not There” When He Is Looking Right at It
“I genuinely do not understand it,” says a husband who has constantly said an item was not there, only for the wife to find the said item exactly where they said it was.
How Guys Go From Fighting and Suddenly Back to Being Friends
It’s a thing. Two guys could fight one minute and then laugh like best buddies the next. “I think it’s because a good chunk of guys don’t care enough to hold grudges,” explains a post.
Responds to the Least Important Part
Interestingly, what’s important to women is quite different to men. So women find it annoying when men respond to the least important parts of a conversation. But as one user explains the indifference, “We respond to the part that’s interesting to us.”
The coordinated handshakes between men baffle many women. “(It’s a) lifetime of practice,” explains a guy.
Uses Shampoo as Body Wash
Why do men use shampoo as a body wash while there’s soap? “Because it is soapy and smells nice,” answers a commentator.
Act Different Around Each Group of Friends
Women also do not understand why men act differently when with different groups of friends. The reason for this behavior, according to one commentator, is, “We (men) take in a situation and generally conform into one attitude because that’s the norm for that specific group.”
Throws Dirty Clothes Next to the Hamper
A guy explains why you’ll find a pile of dirty clothes on the floor with the hamper next to them, “I want to wear the clothing again. If it goes to the hamper, I’ve admitted defeat and will have to wash them sooner.”
Brain Goes Neutral and Not Think About Anything
It’s unthinkable for women, but men’s brains can go neutral where they think about nothing. Absolutely nothing!
Hate to Use Lotion or Chapstick
Men will complain about dry skin and chapped lips yet say no to lotion and chapstick. Why? “I hate the greasy feeling of that stuff,” points out a user.
Take Too Long in the Bathroom
Lastly, women wonder why men spend at least half an hour in the bathroom. But as it turns out, “It’s another world. You get to be alone with no one telling you things to do or asking questions. It’s our safe space,” explains a guy.
