What Women Really Think About What Men Are Really Thinking

Oh you men...

Years of exposure to 20th century media has taught women a lot about what men are thinking. The fun thing about it is that we've actually come to view men as complete stereotypes. We think we understand them, but do we really? Women are portrayed as complicated, deep creatures too complex to be understood by any man, whereas men are simple creatures. The following male myths are commonly proportionated throughout society. Which do you agree with? Which are patently false?

  • Women think men are always thinking about carnal pleasures, because we have been conditioned to think that is what men think about. Apparently a man cannot breathe without thinking about his next conquest.

  • Women think that men are all afraid of commitment. In spite of the fact that some men are downright clingy and will declare love after 5 minutes (because men are actually capable of falling head over heels in love the same way women are) we will still be surprised if a man actually proposes.

  • Women think that men are all ego. The idea of a non competitive man is foreign and strange to us.

  • Women think that men enjoy bar fights and brawling. Good men hit other men in the name of justice. Bad men hit anyone for the heck of it.

  • Women think that all men want is sex. If a man approaches us and is friendly, he must want to mate with us. Quite often this is actually true. The rest of the time, it is not.

  • Women think that all men enjoy danger. The notion of a man who would rather not throw himself into a volcano out of a helicopter whilst diffusing a C4 bomb is almost unthinkable.

  • Women think that men don't need reassurance in relationships. We are the needy ones, they can get by with an occasional dog biscuit and a pat on the head.

  • Women think that men think that we are insane and irrational. Men who do understand us must be gay.

  • Women think that men hate shopping, with the exception of tool and toy stores. (This may also actually be true.)

  • Women think that men should be seen and not heard.

  • Women think men are obsessed with power, unlike us women who never struggle in cold war style for many years, jostling for position as the alpha female.

  • Women think men aren't really thinking. We think they want a sandwich.

Just another boring male... 7 years ago

"Women think that men are all afraid of commitment." Unfortunately, in my experience, I have typically found that this is a line that comes from women that have very few qualities that a man would want to commit to. Sadly these women have a very low self-esteem. There was once a girl in my life whom I would have married immediately if I had had the financial capability to actually offer her something (as in - a future). We eventually broke up, and the next guy in her life felt exactly the same way, and fortunately for him - he WAS able to propose to her within months of meeting her. Some girls simply have what us guys are looking for, some don't. "Women think that all men want is sex. If a man approaches us and is friendly, he must want to mate with us." I've approached many women in my life & been told immediately to "F^&* Off!" Very few of these women have I ever actually been sexually attracted to. Sometimes I just want a light for my cigarette, sometimes to know the time, or when the next bus arrives. I've stopped talking/approaching women in nearly all scenarios in my life now. It's just not worth it. "Women think that men don't need reassurance in relationships. We are the needy ones, they can get by with an occasional dog biscuit and a pat on the head." What's even worse is that many believe that saying "I love you" a million times a day, makes up for the lack of "actions" that would suggest they love you. "Women think that men hate shopping, with the exception of tool and toy stores." This belief actually stems from the fact that men don't often like to shop for clothes. The problem here is not men - but the fashion industry. Men's fashion is crap. Simple as that. Women are catered for to the extent that shopping for them is like sending a kid into a candy store. For men, there are hardly any stores, and the stores that do exist all sell the same thing (which is crap), and will continue to do so for the next 5 - 10 years. "Women think men aren't really thinking. We think they want a sandwich." Sometimes it's so sad how women perceive us, that there's little else worth desiring than a sandwich.

'Just another boring male'... thanks for your comments and sharing your perspective, it really seems you need a hug... this article was written mostly tongue in cheek.. it is easy for us to perceive others as being little more than cliches, but I think deep down we all know that it's not true.. we're all more than the cliches say we are, men and women alike.
