Things men and women don’t know about each other?Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)

Oh my God...I found that list repellent.
The only thing on it to which I can relate is "we want you to make the first move."
As to the rest, it is why I have problems when males first try to get involved with me; they have obviously only known females to whom that awful list is applicable, and they invariably treat me as those females trained them to act, in order to get to the golden p**sy.

NO not all of us are such silly, unsexy (not wear sexy bras most of the time? WteffingF?) creatures as this list would suggest.


Ahem:

1. No two of us are the same: We don't all love to shop, drink cosmos and watch romantic comedies. While some men think that "you know one woman, you know them all," each woman has her own unique history and habits, her own endearing quirks and idiosyncrasies. Embrace them!

8 - We're not your mother: This should be pretty self-evident and yet men seem to frequently conflate their significant others with the women who raised them. We are not here to pick up after you, and we don't want to nag you about it—but we will if we have to. So don't make us.(this is a guess but very positive guess, You do not take me as the man child type)

10 - Sometimes we're in a bad mood just because: It's not "that time of the month," so don't ask. Our feelings are complicated and not completely subject to our hormones. (oh come on)

Women probably won't understand 'The Nothing Box'.

I find it pretty amusing that the first point is that NO two women are alike - they're all unique, you can't say "you know one woman, you know them all," etc. etc.

Then the lame fluff piece immediately starts claiming that women "all" want this, and women "all" do that, and we "all" want half your dessert, which is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard.

This lame 'article' sounds like something right out of Cosmo.

+1 (except for agreeing with #2, because I don't).

What I know about women = They are amazing.

What I don't know about women = pretty much everything else.

I think the lists are humorous and cover both sex's like any "POLL" would "generally.

Ladies, #1 pretty much covers anything you could possibly disagree with on the list,(we're not all the same) and I seriously doubt there are any women on here willing to say they are looking for a man child to care for and pick up after, and lets just say you've proven the whole "bad mood" things pretty good in your replies already so no sense in arguing that one either.

Now I'm not sure how many you would expect to be a perfect match for the list to be valid and acceptable but if even 1 fits to some degree much less 2,3,4, or 5 things it's not nearly as bad as some of you are making it out to be.

Can I say I find it *hilarious* that anyone could start their post with:


(kincsnincs) Cheatingatsolitaire, women actually do understand the "nothing box".


And yet ends his post with:


(kincsnincs) Incidentally, what's a "nothing box"? I am NOT going to watch a stupid show just to find out. Please tell us.


As if one could possibly claim (in the first line) that "women actually do understand" the exact thing that they then claim to not know what it even is in the last line.

You might as well be saying "I know all about money/currency and how finance works" and then say right after that "what are those little colored pieces of paper you gave that guy for?" As if you don't have time in your "busy life" to watch a short video that would explain (and yet somehow *do* have time in that same "busy life" to waste time on an internet forum spouting "truths" of your own... and then making it obvious you don't even understand it yourself).

That men and women really aren't all that different from each other, and we'd get a lot further with each other if we stopped obsessing over such an oudated belief that there is.

Yes, there are some differences relating to how we deal with our bodies and hormones, but most of it just facile stereotypes and preconceptions that rarely apply when you actually get to know somebody. There will always be exceptions to the rules.

Everyone is an individual. Treat them as such.
