50 Things Women Want Men To Know

Updated on August 9, 2013

Communication is crucial...

Attention Men: This is your resource guide to help you understand women.

Will women and men really ever fully understand each other? Probably not.

Both genders are amazing and offer their unique perspectives to a relationship.

Wouldn't it be nice if we had the chance to actually comprehend what our partner is saying?

Whether it's with action or key words that are on the sly and not actually straight forward.

I hope you take these useful tricks of the trade into consideration.

Men and women might never fully understand each other, but the important thing is that we never give up trying.

Disclaimer: This list is all in fun, yet factual. A sense of humor and an open mind is required before proceeding to read.

Feel free to share your tips and tricks of the trade in the comment section below.

What Women Want Men To Know...

  1. Contrary to rumors, gossip or however else you might have heard it...we don't read minds. We are not psychic. If you want or need something you should ask. We prefer not to assume.
  2. Get yourself acquainted with "The Look." You were probably familiar with this practice while you were a child and your parent gave you "The Look." Well this gesture never goes away. So prepare yourself and as always have an escape plan ready.
  3. Trust us multi-tasking is possible. Take baby steps...if you focus hard enough you could do two things at once. Follow up with three and work up to ten.
  4. Fact: Women get the last word. There are no ifs, ands or buts. Consider the alternative if she doesn't. Not worth the hassle.
  5. Proceed with caution when you hear the words "We need to talk"
  6. We will always ponder why Menopause, Menstruation and Mental Breakdown all begin with the word MEN. Any insight on this dilemma would be appreciated.
  7. When you are tongue tied for a response, "Yes, Dear" always seems to work best.
  8. Even if you burn a meal we will still eat it because you prepared it.
  9. Bodily sounds are not acceptable and blaming the kids or pets doesn't work.
  10. Partners might be the "last to know," but when we find out you best run for the hills because your life as you know it will never be the same again.
  11. Fact: A cocky, know-it-all attitude truly gets you nowhere.
  12. When a women asks "Does my butt looks big?" DO NOT PAUSE, just answer QUICKLY. There is never a rewind for this moment.
  13. Using a cute kid or adorable puppy as a decoy to attract women is a great plan and works! Just be sure you have permission to use either if they aren't yours. Bail is not part of the package.
  14. When women say "I'll consider it" just forget you asked because chances are the answer you want won't be flowing from her mouth.
  15. Fact: Watching the movie Brokeback Mountain will not make you gay!
  16. There is nothing unmasculine about asking for directions while driving. It's more honorable to ask and arrive at our destination safely.
  17. FYI: Common colds have a duration of 5 days. You are not doomed or dying. Nonexistent whining would be appreciated or at least keep it to a minimum of a few times per day, not hourly. Further proof why women give birth.
  18. It's OK to share your feelings, concerns, worries and it's OK to cry. Please don't sob as often as Speaker Of The House John Boehner!
  19. Being competitive is fun. Being overly competitive makes us want to kick you in the nuts.
  20. FACT: PMS is the real deal. There is no way around it. You can't avoid it. Yes, you should walk on eggshells. On the bright side...PMS doesn't last forever and we will be back to normal in a few days. Just imagine PMS as a hurricane. The storm is approaching, the eye of the storm causes havoc. There is always sunshine at the end of a storm.
  21. We appreciate that when we are singing off-key to our favorite songs that you don't ridicule us. Even if we ridicule you.
  22. FACT: Size really doesn't matter. It's how you use it that does!
  23. Playful flirting with other women is OK. Just remember whatever you can do we can do better!
  24. We appreciate you trying to always solve our problems. Just keep in mind we usually don't want you to, we are just venting and most likely the remedy is already in the works.
  25. FACT: Playing dress-up with our clothing is a major concern that should be addressed.

More Things Women Want Men To Know...

26. Some women are OK with you having a good friend of the opposite gender. Just don't let those some of us down.

27. Heads up: You should never, ever spend more time in front of a mirror then us. Ever.

28. FACT: Over-inflated egos and an abundance of self-confidence is a total turn-off.

29. Substance abuse of any kind is unacceptable, unless we are also abusers. If so, we should plan a trip to rehab pronto! Enablers aren't healthy for a relationship.

30. We appreciate it when we feel appreciated since we do appreciate you and mutual appreciation is vital for a healthy, appreciative relationship.

31. FACT: We do have the capability to retrain your brain. The left and the right side. Also everything in between.

32. We don't watch sports with you just for the eye candy. We actually like sports also. It's amazing to watch a touchdown happen during the 9th inning of the Stanley Cup Finals and a hole in one while watching a basketball game! Yep, no eye candy for us.

33. WARNING: Never, ever touch that last piece of chocolate. Ever. Never. Ever.

34. Going shopping with us gives you extra bonus points.

35. Texting us with bad news is a major reduction in points.

36. If you truly love your family you will have yearly medical physicals. Excuses never apply here.

37. Don't expect us to always be the conversationalist. On the flip side, do not talk as much as a woman. There is a gray area. You could find it.

38. FACT: Surprise gifts are always welcome.

39. If you should have a complaint, follow it up with a compliment. That makes the difference between a "lucky" and unlucky day!

40. Forgetting a birthday or anniversary is equivalent to 3 months of hard labor. We advise against it. Always have a back up plan to remember. Consider a tattoo on your forehead.

41. FACT: We don't really look at the size of your feet or hands.

42. You seriously didn't believe #41, did you???

43. We realize you'll never be perfect because in reality perfection is boring. But we will continue to try to mold you into near perfection.

44. Just like you need your space so do we. So we will agree to disagree that we both need space and during this "space" we will question why we actually wanted space.

45. FACT: "I have a headache" is not curable with Tylenol, but is with a cold shower.

46. Cold shoulders are not something we like to give, so try not to bring one on.

47. Scratching your private body parts is unhygienic and should never be done in public. Adjusting yourself also falls into this category. Get a room.

48. Yes, common sense is something we all have the capability of acquiring on a daily basis.

49. Contrary to what you've heard "swearing" is not a tool. So there is no need to use curse words while tending to chores.

50. FACT: You will never fully understand women, but never give up trying.

Treat a woman like the shining star she is...

    • tsadjatko profile image

      TSAD 2 years ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door

      Now this is a ruse if I ever saw one.

      Speaking as a man who has been to Venus (and Mars) investigating just why the genders can't communicate I have to tell you this is written solely for women. No real man can get past number one or maybe two before he starts experiencing deja vu, then anxiety coupled with confusion resulting in a blank stare and further reading without comprehension. DO NOT try to get your boyfriend or husband to read all 50 without providing immediate medical assistance experienced in symptoms of PSD.

      Any man who manages to read even one of these 50, I guarantee you, in his mind the first word he will utter is "but" followed by something like, but I did and that didn't work, or but I tried but, or but that's what I want her to know about men, but....but....but.

      So men, don't fall for this, it's a trap. 50 things is too much by 49 for any man to absorb, the goal here is to totally overload your mind and render you helpless to ever say to any woman the words...NOoooo, I don't want to!

      I am not impressed - most especially with this statement: "We appreciate that when we are singing off-key to our favorite songs that you don't ridicule us. Even if we ridicule you."

      To me, this 'harmless-looking' statement sums the whole problem with women!

      31. Is false we just don't do it in front of you.. Dangerous if you try to change us too much. You'll be with someone you don't even know anymore.

      35. Depends in situation. Sometimes notification is all that's required..major stuff is best to call. Good rule for both sexes

      39. Depends in whose wrong, if your wrong I'm right I don't have to sugar your ego. Woman up just like men have to.

      Hi Sunshine

      what a fabulous find and fantastic great must have and print checklist hub.

      Awesome, inspiring, not what I was looking for but definitely what I need.

      Love the butt tip and yes I fail every time but I do tell my partner that she has sexy buns front and rear.

      The bodily noises, yep fail that too and trying to blame our recently rescued black lab isn't working either.

      The piece de resistance of course is the "never understanding women but keep trying".

      Love this and must work harder at implementation.

      Thanks for writing this and giving us males a well deserved kick in the ass.

      Awesome hub. Voted up, ticked and shared.

      Great great hub..I really enjoyed it. My darling husband died many years ago and I miss him every single hour almost of every single day. However, he did once really take the biscuit when he rang me from work to ask what colour eye´s did I have...can you believe that one !! apparently he had been trying to describe me to a colleague ( we all worked at the same place) and rang to ask me that question. At first I thought he must be joking but he wasn´t. When he arrived home some hours later I was not in the best of moods and asked what on earth he was looking at when I thought he was gazing at me tenderly during intimate moments. His reply was that at such close range and without his glasses on , he couldn´t actually see very much anyway...this did nothing to placate the situation because he must have looked at my eye´s a million times with glasses in place and from a distance..hmmmm. He was very good at the " yes dears" though, and also had a great saying which was " I wear the trousers in this house....If that´s all right with you dear" Despite all that I loved him immensely and he was the only man for me ...ever. Great hub and a big vote up.

      Hi auenni, No "misandry" here of any kind. If you read the disclaimer before you proceeded with the tips you would have realized that.

      "Disclaimer: This list is all in fun, yet factual. A sense of humor and an open mind is required before proceeding to read. Feel free to share your tips and tricks of the trade in the comment section below."

      If you aren't familiar with "The Look" be very thankful. "The Look" has been around since mankind. Parents give it, mates give it and even teacher give "The Look" no words are ever needed with it.

      Anyone who knows Sunshine knows that she spreads love, not hate. I hope you understand this article better now. Thank you for your comment which enabled me to explain myself to the ones who don't get it.

      this entire hub sounds quite misandry to me. for example 'the look'. maybe the writer can explain what that means? not everyone can interpret phases like that and i am not sure whether the writer wants to help men with their women or just write what she likes

      #4 is very true. And also, he needs to leave the house when you're pissed.

      Take space.

      #16, #17- and if I have a cold..you can still kiss me lol,

      #20..yeah and if he keeps track of it, he might know even before we do, in case we forget, why we're being biatches, ok nuff said.

      What a hoot! Love the ones about multitasking (my husband is incapable) and the word "men" in menopause, menstruation and mental breakdown -- makes you wonder, doesn't it? IMO there is a direct correlation! Voted up, useful and, of course, funny! You made my morning!

      Hi Sue! I knew others could relate to the chocolate tip. It's a fact...never, ever touch it! :)

      Dear Linda--

      A perfect accompaniment to Josh's hub on the guy's perspective... you are truly a dynamic duo!

      I am so grateful that amidst the funnier thoughts you included the importance of medical check-ups and taking care of themselves in #36.

      Having just met sweet josh, I have invited him to 'play' a role in my series... here's hoping!

      Great and a smile maker-- Voted UP & FAB. Hugs, Maria

      Hi Linda,

      "WARNING: Never, ever touch that last piece of chocolate. Ever. Never. Ever." Especially when we are PMSing. LOL

      Your daughter is a beautiful young lady.

      Voted up up and away

      Take care :)

      Very good thought Rajan!!! Could that be why the three of them start with MEN? Hmmm. Possibly not, but it could make us wonder. Thanks for the share and for fun comment!

      An awesome list Linda. About the no 6 point on this list. I think all the 3 things affect us men, therefore.... Just a thought..hehe.

      Up all the way. Shared on HH.

      I agree Alecia. If only they could experience it for at least one day then maybe they could understand PMS better. Great comment!

      Great hub! I think this is on the money. #20 is something I wish we could fully explain because it seems like so many men don't get the concept since they can't experience it.

      rfmoran, The brown or black shoe would apply to both genders...I've done that countless times! Good one!!! By the way I was born and bred on Long Island. Some friends of mine were just discussing Long Isand Deli's and Pizza Places on Facebook!:)

      For confirmation of #4, we have only to turn to episodes of "House Hunters" on Home and Garden TV. When couples buy a home from three choices, it's usually the woman who gets her way, no matter what house the man wants. Voting this Up and Interesting.

      Good and funny stuff. My favorite is when I'm asked "Should I wear the black shoes or the brown?" I respond, "the brown." Whereupon I am asked: "What's wrong with the black ones?"

      I've known my wife for 16 years and we've been married for 5 years. I know what you mean with the look. But I still have to master the subtle changes in facial tensions. And yes, when id doubt, Yes dear is a good answer - in my case it's Yes, Love.

      Wonderful Hub Sunshine, gave me a nice chuckle on a rather dreary British summer's day. I've recently fallen in love with a very special girl, so I'm making a checklist of these as we speak hehehe...

      Hi Linda,

      Very entertaining. Loved it from start to finish. Liked everything especially the 3 words starting with MEN-what a strange coincidence! Just like many here have said, the list has a whole lot of value too. Lovely hub! Thanks. And your daughter is very sweet. Sharing it across for the benefit of my friends on HP. Cheers, Rema

      woman needs dignity, respect besides accommodative nature. man must try to understand a woman, before he understands what he is ..good hub..mother is a woman..feminine..nature too..
