    The one thing I don't understand about men is the way they think. It's been said that the female brain uses both hemispheres at the same time but the male brain can only use one hemisphere at a time.
    Men are supposedly more analytical and can separate emotion from intellect.
    As a female I have difficulty with that task. I'm not sure if this is an advantage for men or a hindrance for women.

    I can't understand the whole toilet seat thing. I'm more than happy to put the toilet seat down for my wife, but can't they see it when they enter the bathroom? I mean, you have to enter the bathroom and walk towards the toilet, wouldn't you notice the seat was up? It seems confusing to me that it would ever be possible to fall in.

      Ha ha, I think that's a bit of a myth. We just don't want to have to pull it down ourselves!

      As a female who has fallen into a many of toilets. (I have 3 brothers.) I ask you to go in the bathroom and sit on the toilet with the seat up. I gaurantee your  butt will touch the water and that's just nasty. Think of us not noticing the seat is ac

    Why men and women are reluctant to accept that there are some genuine gender differences when it comes to approaching life?
    More often than not disputes in relationships are the result of one person being disappointed that their mate (didn't automatically) see, feel, or think the way they do. 
    Having unrealistic expectations that everyone thinks the same way or values the same things is a major source of friction.
    For example in the movie: "The Breakup". Jennifer Aniston argues with Vince Vaughn regarding washing dishes. Eventually he agrees to wash them next time. Her reply is:
    "I don't want you to wash the dishes! I want you to (want) to wash the dishes!"
    In other words getting what she asked for is not the solution! She wants him to think like her so she doesn't have to ask him!
    She wants it to be (his) idea!
    Oftentimes we sing about the importance of "communication" and asking for what we want. However the reality is in many instances people feel like they shouldn't have to ask!
    Therefore even when they get what they ask for they still feel bitter.smile
    Maybe it's the having to (ask) that destroys the notion of "soul-mates".

    Truthfully, I have never understood the idea of "opposite sex." If men where the opposite of women, say, there would be huge differences in how their brains function. Remarkably, there are not all that many differences, just enough to make it interesting.
    This is why I find it exciting to meet a woman who has a degree and a job in engineering or physics, and other so-called male occupations, like the military. Or like Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of facebook. She graduated number one in her class in economics at Columbia University.
    But to the question: As a male heterosexual, I cannot think of a thing that stands out about what I don't get about women. But then again, I learned to listen to women at an early age. And I know when and when not to ask a question. And I really enjoy being allowed to sit in with a group of my female friends and just listen.
