18 Things That Women Think Men Like (But Men Actually HATE)

@armisan

1. PLAYING HARD TO GET

“As soon as a girl would play hard to get, I would just immediately assume they were extremely high maintenance and not even bother.”

2. TALKING. ALL. THE. TIME.

“Talking. The average woman speaks approximately 25,000 words a day. The average man speaks around 10,000 words a day. We can’t keep up, and we don’t want to.”

3. HAVING US SOLVE ALL YOUR PROBLEMS

“Having me solve all their problems. I get it, I’m a man. I like being helpful every now and then, but when you can’t open a can with a can opener it isn’t my job to do it for you.”

4. ALWAYS EXPECTING US TO MAKE THE FIRST MOVE

“Personally, I hate when a woman doesn’t initiate any sort of sexual contact or show any kind of interest in it. They say it’s because they want us to just ‘go for it,’ but if it doesn’t look like you want it the last thing I’m gonna do is ‘go for it.’”

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
