Men have been trying to figure women out for centuries now. They claim that the female brain is an enigma, but we’re here to set the record straight and tell you why women aren’t that complicated after all. When it comes to relationships and what they expect from a man, it’s actually easier to please a woman than you might think. Women are not simple creatures and sometimes when they say they are fine, they really aren’t. Continue reading below to discover 6 surprising things most men don’t actually realize about women.
1. They Don’t Owe You a Smile – In the same sense that women don’t owe you anything because you were nice to them, they also don’t owe you a smile because you ask for once. This has been a sensitive subject as of late, but read us out. There is a notion that if a woman smiles when she is not feeling like it, it’s to stroke the ego of the person asking for the smile. When that happens, it devalues a woman and makes her a mere decoration.
2. Nice Guys Don’t Finish Last – There is this old saying that “nice guys finish last when it comes to dating.” But, that isn’t necessarily true. Sure, being a nice guy when you’re young doesn’t always work when you are trying to get the girl. But, as you get older, women are actually looking at the nice guys to have a relationship with. These are the men that don’t come with a bad boy reputation.
3. Don’t Say You’re a Nice Guy – We know we just said, Nice guys don’t finish last. But there is a difference between being a nice guy and saying you’re a nice guy. We all know that there are some not-so-nice guys posing as good men in the shadows. And because of this, women can tell when you are genuinely a good dude, or if you are playing nice to get what you want.
4. Effort is Everything – If you are in a relationship with a girl, whether it’s dating or just friends, all she really wants from you is some effort. Women give a lot of themselves in their relationships with their friends and family, and when it’s not returned, it can be a little disappointing. It’s not hard to show a woman you care by putting in a little effort. Something as little as an unexpected text can do the trick. Seriously, it’s really that easy. And, if you’re just getting to know a girl, there are other ways to show effort when you are interested in her. Like actually asking them on a date, planning something nice to do, and showing up on time.
5. Mom Talk – If you are a guy trying to get to know a woman, there is a good chance she is sizing you up, as well. And, you better believe she is paying attention to the way you talk about your mother. Women are taught that the way a guy treats his mother is a good indication of how he treats other women. There are exceptions for men who were abused by their moms, of course.
6. Players Get a Pass – Being a player is always right. But, what you have to always do is be honest about it. It’s hard dating, and sometimes the thought of being locked down to one person too quickly can be a little scary. Girls feel the same way. Just like you, she probably has a selection of guys that can take her out at any given moment. If it’s the early stages of the relationship, then it should be a given that you are both seeing other people. But, if she asks you, and you tell her that she is the only one, you better be telling the truth.
