100 Things All Women Need To Know About Men (According to 100 Men)

21. Nonsense behavior will cause us to pull back.

“We’re perfectly willing to invest, but nonsense behavior will, little by little, cause us to disinvest. That time you said you were upset and when I asked why, you said, ‘Guess?’—I pulled back a little. When you started crying instead of articulating your feelings? I pulled back a little. When you developed double standards regarding behaviors that are okay for you but NOT for me? I pulled back A LOT.”


22. Do not belittle our cocks.

“Unless the guy is super hung, any insinuation that his cock is even a little less than ideal in terms of size hurts a lot. Even some hung guys actually feel like their cock is too small.”


23. Say what you mean.

“If you say something we’re most likely going to take it at face value.

Example:

Guy: Hey babe I’m going to go play cards at Zach’s tonight is that all right?

Girl: Yeah, that’s fine, stay out all night, I’m going to bed anyway.

Guy: * Leaves after a hug and kiss *

* Hours later Guy gets an angry text because she wanted him to stay home with her. *

The guy was giving her the option to keep him home and she told him she was fine with it and she was tired.”


24. Mean what you say.

“This game of ‘know what I want without me telling you’ bullshit has got to stop. I’m not a fuckin’ mind reader. I’m not in a relationship/marriage to play mind games. Tell me what’s on your mind or how you really feel, the guessing games must end. Alternatively, if you would rather me not do something, don’t tell me, ‘No, go ahead it’s fine,’ than get pissed when I do it. Just tell me you’d rather me not.”


25. Stop hinting and just tell us what you want.

“Your hints are useless. Say what you want. Also, when we pee sometimes we still get some on the floor. Even as adults.”


26. If you want to see us happy, just get naked.

“Trust me, when a woman is naked, 99% of the time we are happy beyond compare. No matter what you think you look like.”


27. If you’re not interested in the sex, we’re not interested in the sex.

“If you’re not interested in the sex, we’re not interested in the sex. If you’re just going to lie there like a rag doll while we hump away, it gets boring real quick. Fuck, I could go service myself twice as fast with half the exertion if that’s all it’s about. And on a related note, don’t take masturbation personally. It’s a literal physical need for men. Imagine walking around for a week with loaded sinuses and being told not to blow your nose. That’s literally how it feels down there when we’re backed up. Let us relieve a little pressure and get off our fucking backs. It’s not about you.”


28. If a guy likes you a lot, he will make time for you.

“If a guy likes you a lot, he will make time for you. If you are getting a lot of maybes and excuses, just move on.”


29. It doesn’t feel good to have a partner that does nothing but take.

“When a guy is constantly doing all the initiating, all of the oral, and all of the work with no reciprocation, don’t act surprised when he stops calling. It doesn’t feel good to have a partner that does nothing but take.

I’ve heard a lot of, ‘Well, I do a lot! Like x, y, and z! Just because it isn’t in the bedroom doesn’t mean it doesn’t count!’ Yes. Yes, it does mean it doesn’t count when we’re talking about sex. Doing nice things outside the bedroom doesn’t translate into appreciation for what you’re receiving inside the bedroom.

It’s like giving a dog a treat three days after he brings you the paper. How’s he know WTF you just gave him a treat for?”


30. Bars aren’t the best place to meet the best guys.

“There exist men willing to have serious relationships with you…but those men probably don’t spend their time at bars chatting you up the first time you glance in their direction.”
