Men and women have the same feelings, Why do we experience them so differently at times?
Maybe it's because women are receivers and men are givers. Women feel with our emotions; men feel with physical affection. Also when men are angry they might hide it or show it in a manner that is hurtful. When women show anger we may cry or let the person know that it hurts, and we want to come up with a solution to make it better to prevent it from happening again.
One pretty solid answer: socialization. Men and women are socialized from a very early age how to deal with their emotions. As human beings, we all feel and experience (for the most part) the same emotions in the same way - it's how we are encouraged or discouraged from expressing those emotions that differs from gender to gender.
Have you ever noticed that when young boys are being angry or loud, it's generally more accepted than if a young girl gets visibly upset? She's instantly told her behavior isn't 'ladylike' and that she needs to be quiet, effectively communicating to her that certain emotional expression is off limits.
Same with young boys, who become injured or upset and cry. We tell them 'boys don't cry' or "stiffen the upper lip,son" which tells him that his display of emotion isn't correct or acceptable.
We carry these gendered behavioral lessons throughout our lives and sometimes this can have incredibly harmful psychological effects.
Men tend to value opportunity more, while women tend to value security more. So high risk high reward situations that thrill many men terrify many women.
I hate to disagree with the premise of your ?, but Men and Women are as different as Cats and Dogs.
These differences go way beyond the different key hormones like testosterone, and estrogen. The whole mental process is view differently by each sex. Probably the biggest reason for divorce.
Yes, same feelings but about different passions and different perspectives. So it shouldn't be surprising they occur at different times.
