7 Differences Between Men and Women


1. Men dress to impress women, and women dress to compete against other women

Men know women have a keen eye when it comes to style, sorry boys, but we do judge you for it. If you roll up in some crocs, khakis, and a salmon colored polo, the odds aren’t in your favor. Women find men more attractive who put themselves together a bit more. Us women though, we dress to compete against other women.

There are a lot of good looking people out there, and men have their pick of fish in the sea, but we have to dress ourselves in an “individual” way to compete against the other women swimming around. Think about it, men aren’t checking out the fashion blogger websites and instagrams, us women are.

2. Women expect you to read their minds and men expect women to tell them what they want

One of the best descriptions of this I have ever heard was, “women expect you to know they are thirsty and to bring them water without asking, when men are waiting for a woman to tell us she’s dehydrated”.

There’s this miscommunication and misunderstanding that happens between men and women because expectations are off. Now, I am not one to condone this catastrophic behavior, but have been known to definitely be one to play this card in my day. Guys, I realize we don’t make things easy on you.

But throw us a bone, as we have no idea what you’re thinking a lot of the time. Ladies, be more open with guys so they understand what you actually want or need. They can’t read your minds, so don’t expect them too. The last thing you need to do is get mad at a guy for not understanding what you want.

3. Women have a much harder time making up their minds about things than men

Guys, have you ever asked a girl what she wants for dinner? Debate done. But really, I mean, can anyone even deny this main difference between men and women? Anywhere from food, to clothing, to making any life decision, women are the most indecisive human beings ever compared to men.

4. Women start planning out their future with a person a lot sooner than men

Insert major eye roll here. Is this even a thing? I don’t know, but it’s so true. Men, I applaud you. Girls sometimes get a little crazy and are already thinking about the guy they went out with three times as their future husband and what type of flowers they will have at the wedding.

On a smaller scale, girls usually are thinking about getting into a relationship with someone they are dating a lot sooner than guys do. Men generally like to work on a date by date, day by day, type of basis. Girls are screenshotting, texting, group chatting, meme sending, telling everything to their friends, to decode if this guy is going to turn into a boyfriend or not.

5. Men think about sex more than women do

Okay, so this is actually scientifically proven, I can’t deny this fact. Sometimes I question it, but I haven’t been able to disprove it.

Men think more about sex, and think about it differently, for the most part. But science says, “men think about sex more than women do”. Difference, complete.

6. Girls like to start arguments to see how much a guy cares, and men don’t want drama… ever

Girls, I’m sorry to rat us out, but come on now. This is the definition of almost every fight we get in with a guy. We gage how much a guy cares about us by picking a fight with him. Men, just know, we do it because we don’t know how you feel, or are insecure about what “we are” so we pick fights to see how you are going to respond.

I say, “we”, but I would like to actually exclude myself from this fact, haha. Girls, seriously stop this behavior. It isn’t attractive. If you are insecure, don’t waste your energy on drama: it’s overrated, and the guy isn’t going to appreciate it. Men on the other hand will do anything to avoid drama.

It’s effing annoying to them to constantly be fighting, or arguing about stupid shit. Women start drama, and men like to end drama.

7. Women tell their friends every intimate detail of their sex lives, and men do not

I have had numerous conversations with my guy friends stating how when it comes to sex, they do not have detailed conversations about their sex lives with their guy friends. It usually goes, “we boned” and done.

Girls literally get into the nitty gritty details of a sexual encounter they had with a guy. Women describe positions, compare with other guys, talk about the good things, the bad things … Just absolutely everything. Ironically enough, you’d think it would be the opposite, but it’s not. Sorry boys.
