If you’re a man you’ve come across the phrase “I wish you men would just understand us women” or something like that millions of times.
It’s no mystery that men have never been truly able to understand women. However, if you see yourself in a situation where you are damaging your relationship and don’t know what you’re doing wrong then this article is perfect for you.
We have compiled a list of X things you don’t understand about women. While we don’t promise that you’ll understand them better once you’re through this article, but this is just our attempt to help you understand women better:
#1 Women Don’t Do Makeup to Attract Someone
The biggest misconception out there among men is that women wear makeup to attract someone. No guys believe me it’s not true.
In fact, there are times when they wear it to simply because they like to. Some men complain about how they don’t find makeup attractive. Fellas, women do not wear it to impress you.
However, there are times when women doll up to look good and impress their loved ones.
#2 You Don’t Have to Fix It
It’s common for women to discuss their problem, especially with men they love. And men being men, they come up with a solution that they find most feasible.
Most of the times women just want to talk about their problems, they aren’t looking for solutions – all they want is to vent out.
Women just want to be listened to. In fact, offering a solution can even offend them so it’s better to keep your opinions to yourself unless asked for.
#3 They’re Not Fine When They Say They Are
Guys believe me when I tell you this – they’re not fine when they say they are.
“I’m fine” is a woman’s way of saying “I am not fine but I don’t want to create any drama right now… if you care enough for me and understand me then try to figure it out yourself. “
Sometimes they may even say it because you messed things up and they want you to realize what you did wrong without having to spell it out for you.
So the next time when she says “I am fine”, pay attention to her, and make sure that you are there to show that you care.
#4 What You Consider Flirting. They Consider Harassment
Comments such as “hey, sexy” especially when you do not know her are not welcomed by most women.
Women want to be complimented but you should choose your words carefully, especially when you’re talking to a stranger and you don’t know what kind of compliments they prefer.
Praise her by calling her pretty or beautiful before you two are comfortable enough to call each other ‘sexy’ and other such words.
There’s nothing wrong with the word ‘sexy’ but you need to know where to draw the line.
#5 Not All Women Are Crazy For Flowers
Movies may have taught us that women love receiving roses, and the majority of men do think the same way. However, the reality may be far from what the movies have taught us.
Girls love flowers but going to your girlfriend with just a bouquet is not the best option. Today, girls want to be felt special. You should do more for her than just bring her a bouquet.
A good idea is to pick a piece of jewelry with your partner’s name. It will cost you as much as a bouquet but leave a bigger impact.
#6 They Aren’t Gold Diggers
Several men perceive women as gold diggers and think that women go for a guy who has more zeros in the bank. This is nothing more than a myth.
Of course, there are men and women who prefer money and nothing else but we should never generalize it or judge someone without knowing them.
#7 They Need Love and Attention
Women are emotional beings and they want to feel loved and be cared for. Oftentimes, men get too involved in their work or daily routine and have no time for their partner.
This can make your partner feel avoided. Make sure to take out time for your partner and understand each other.
I hope this small guide will help you understand women more.
