10 Things I’ve Learnt About Men

1. Men Don’t Change

“Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.” ― Albert Einstein

Like a leopard that never changes its spots, I have learnt to accept that it’s never easy to change a man. If any, the change is normally temporary. Even if they say they will change, it’s highly likely they won’t.

2. Men Cannot Read Our Mind

“Men are from Mars, and women are from Venus”

Subtlety and assumption is never the way to approach your partner when you are in a relationship. Telling him exactly how you feel will eliminate all the frustration and arguments.

This is further proven with new research that shows many men in the world have discovered to their chagrin that men simply do not know what women are feeling. The study published by the Public Library of Science found that men had twice as much trouble understanding women’s emotions from their eyes as those of other men. Parts of the male brain tied to emotion also didn’t activate as strongly when the men looked at women’s eyes

3. Men Appreciate Woman Who Take Initiative

I’ve found that men, regardless of how successful, self-assured and brave, in general fear rejection. If you are a single lady, don’t be afraid to ask a man out. After all, you have nothing to lose. If you are in a relationship, it is nice for us ladies to the take initiative to plan a date, initiate love making or even surprise your man once in a while. But it’s also equally as lovely to be on the receiving end.

4. Men Don’t Like Feeling Jealous

I have learned this the hard way. Neither do I like the feeling of jealousy. But with women, when we are jealous, we tend to get more possessive and become more available to our man. Men on the other hand, well, they react a little differently. Playing the jealousy card because you want him to pay more attention to you is not going to work. Men usually feel it’s not worth the hassle. This leads us back to point no 2 – Just tell him how you feel. Games aren’t necessary.

5. Men Are Sensitive

A man is sensitive about being accepted just the way he is. Any attempt to improve or change him will make him feel vulnerable or threatened, as though you are trying to change him because he is not good enough.

 6. Men Appreciate Women with A Sense Of Humor

Life can be a pain in the neck sometimes. We women can sometimes get uptight and bothered by small details when really, as they say, “don’t sweat the small stuff”. It’s important to have a healthy sense of humour about life. It’ll make living more pleasurable and remember, no man wants to be with a naggy, humourless woman.

7. Men Are Looking For Women Who Retain Their Femininity

Don’t try to be “one of the boys.” Men have guy friends for that. Most men want women who are kind, feminine and gentle.

8. Men Want A Woman They Can Please

I’ve come to realize that men love to please their woman. Being hard to please is a major turn-off to a man. So ladies, when your guy does something special, tell him how much it means. Show thanks and you’re more likely to receive more of a good thing.

9. Men Want To Be Appreciated

Most men will do almost anything to win the appreciation and admiration of the woman they love. We just need to show appreciation for the little things our man does, even when they seem trivial.

10. Men Want Someone Who Is Supportive

Very often, many women tend to make a crucial mistake – we are quick to criticize.  No one likes to be on the receiving end of this. A relationship built on mutual support and great communication is what everyone seeks. Don’t be so quick to find fault, ladies.

What else have you learned about men? I’d love to hear.
