The 10 Biggest Secrets Women Don't Know About Men

It's often said that women are the more mysterious sex. Supposedly, some men try their whole lives to grasp female behavior, believing that their wives or girlfriends are just unendingly complicated.

It's often said that women are the more mysterious sex. Supposedly, some men try their whole lives to grasp female behavior, believing that their wives or girlfriends are just unendingly complicated. While that may be a fair assessment in some cases, that doesn't mean that men don't sometimes leave women scratching their heads too.

Women may like to believe that they completely know their boyfriend or husband inside and out. Just like women though, all men are different. Even if you spend years with one, some unanswered questions will linger. There will still a handful of things he does that makes any woman wonder; what's he thinking?

A man of few words - and that's a lot of them - is an even tougher nut to crack, try as women may. As women favour verbose communication, and men tend to be more strong and silent, it can sometimes feel like men and women are speaking completely different languages.

So what's he hiding from her? Even if a man did begin dropping hints revealing any of his little secrets, some of them are pretty tough pills to swallow. Women; if you're feeling brave and you want to be ready to approach your next date or partner argument with the upper hand, these insights could be good to know.

10 Adult Entertainment Is Never Off The Table


A lot of women are uncomfortable with their man watching explicit adult entertainment. There's the fear that a guy may be more attracted to an x-rated actress than his wife or girlfriend, that he may think that sex is really like it is in those videos, or that he may develop some kinky, unsavory tastes from what he watches.

As a result, some women might be tempted to ask their boyfriend or husband to stop viewing adult entertainment altogether. Sure, he may quit the habit for a while only to resume it after the argument blows over. Or he may just become sneakier about it so his significant other won't find out. Even if you do convince your guy to leave adult entertainment behind, he may become bitter.

9 They Always Like to Appear Financially Secure

Equality in all areas is still something that society is striving towards. However, some men just can't help but feel troubled and inferior if their girlfriend or wife makes considerably more money than them. Even if you two bring in about the same amount of dough, if a man can't manage his finances, he will go to great lengths to hide this information.

8 Men Hide Their Lack of Direction

Everyone has experience indecision before; switching a major a few times, trying out a job or two before settling on your current career. Men and women are both prone to the same indecision and confusion about their future - you're just not likely to hear men talking about it.

Like it or not, the world has a certain view of men and the way that they should act in any given situation. They're supposed to have all facets of their lives together. Anything that could chip that facade, such as contemplating changing careers or feeling directionless, would somehow make a man less masculine.

7 Men Need To Be Reassured About Their Looks

Few things are better in life than when your better half compliments you in a sincere way. It boosts your confidence, lifts your spirits, and makes you feel like you can conquer the world. However, you have to make sure that the affection isn't one-sided.

6 They Hate It When You Don't Participate

Generally, courtship rules as old as time dictate that the man chases the woman, who is a prize to be won. Today, everyone still believes in this somewhat outdated ideal; the woman waits for the man to text and call first during the early dating stages, and even typically allows the man to plan most of those first outings.

5 Men Have Sexual Fantasies Too

Yes, a lot of men are just happy to be having regular sex with an attractive woman, but that doesn't mean that there isn't more beneath the surface. Just as women have that perfect sex scenario that they would love to try out someday, guys do too.

4 Men Love Feeling Like Men

These days, when a man holds a door open for a woman, he could get one of two reactions. She may either thank him and go about her way or she may insist that she can handle it herself. While women are quite capable of opening their own doors (and pulling out their own seats, and fixing their own flat tire, and anything else), there's still something in good old fashioned chivalry. As long as it doesn't come with old fashioned sexism, of course.

3 They Need Their Space

Nothing is worse than two people who were independent with their own friends and hobbies when they were single discarding all of that after getting into a relationship. Whether you live with your love, you two see each other every day, or you're long distance and can't get together as often, you both need to have separate lives.

2 Yes, Men Think Women Talk Too Much

Do you ever have that feeling, when telling your boyfriend or husband about that funny one-liner your friend said last week or that crazy thing that happened at work yesterday, that he's tuned out and just isn't listening? It's more than a feeling.

1 Men Really Do Check out Other Women

You've probably heard that just because you're with someone doesn't mean that others stop being attractive. Still, girlfriends often get mad at their boyfriends for checking out that other pretty woman at the restaurant/bar/grocery store/etc.

Of course, women have wandering eyes too. It's part of everyone's ancient brain to seek out the best possible partner, but that doesn't mean your partner will act on it.

Of course, if it constantly seems like your boyfriend or husband would rather ogle women than spend some one-on-one time together, you should certainly bring it up. But a little glance at the barista or the waitress doesn't have to be the end of the relationship.
