    I like to write hubs about the sexes and differences, but according to some men the most difficult thing is women. Some men believe women get preference in society and men can be held back due to them. Of course I like to say behind every great man is a woman and behind every fallen man is also a woman. I still believe it is a man's world. For men who think women hold them back, children do that to women so it's pretty equal in those terms. Great question, I'll be following it...

    Picking a major sport team to follow. Think about it you have to be able at a moments notice defend their standings, why they made the draft pick they did, be ready to armchair fire the coach or manager, and make trade decisions. Pretty tough job is you ask me. Especially when you support the Padres and your co-worker is a die-hard Yankees fan.

    The easiest thing about being a man - well I'll get back to you on that cause - gone fishing

    The most difficult thing about being a man is living without a woman smile

    You cannot cry as you want to. The easiest think would be you'll be less responsible for your act.

    Most difficult ....hmmmm I would have to say the pressure of being the bread winner, and being "marketable" . Being single at 43 and being a poor student, I do not have much "game" and find that most women seem to want financial solvency.

    The easiest thing. I can go camping in the woods by myself, and don't have to worry about being abducted, kidnapped, raped, or any of the other ways women have to constantly be vigilant.

    I would have to agree with simon peter...the hardest thing above and beyond all else...is living without a woman.

    try to be honest in a relationship and speak your mind. we are so politically correct these days that telling your wife anything that isn't considered proper can get you in a lot of trouble. the other thing is how we get blamed because some women dress like hookers or get plastic surgery to look better. too many times i've heard people say it's because men only want perfect women or some such thing, it's crazy. i don't know any men that want plastic women or model like skinny women.

    Man cannot give birth as compared with woman. But then I think it is always a balance between man and woman. Certain thing man can do that woman cannot. It is always fair between man and woman.

    I think the most difficult thing about being a man is to tame yourself - to learn to be able to control your powerful instinctive surge and especially aggressive hormones. I think self-control is by nature more difficult to men, than women.

    I am a woman, so I am guessing wink

    Well let me start by saying, I am not a man. LOL

    But to me, in my opinion, based on my fiance'... I'd say that the most difficult thing is growing up. I'm not bashing men! I'm just saying that when a boy hits that age, all day they think about sex and I would have to say its hard to get past that! I never experienced it but I heard from a bunch of guys that its a very hard time. They have to pretty much control themselves.

    The easiest thing about being a man, I'd have to say, based on me being a woman, is not baring children!

    Being honest and selfless all the time is really difficult, while listening to bad thoughts and follow accordingly is the easiest and the weakest part of life.

    In my oppinion  , I  think that emoting for men is the most difficult thing to do , showing weakness  or fears is a no no ,   we were raised to not cry , not  feel much at all.  And for some , the breaking away from that is the hardest thing to do.......The easiest thing for men however  , is our simplistic emotional levels.  No one realy expects us to be very  helpful , very  insightful or anything , its great!!!! Ha.
