  • Demonization of each other, and lack of empathy between the two genders. You're getting increasingly more misunderstandings between men and women because increasingly, neither gender cares about trying to understand the other. You don't understand how something, or someone, works? If it's disposable, and you can just pick another shinier, newer model up off the shelves at any time, then who cares? Why bother getting to know how it works, trying to understand it well enough to make things work better or to fix things if stuff goes wrong? Everyone just does the easy thing, the same thing that everyone else does and that everyone else encourages them to do. Dump it, him or her in the trash, and go out to buy a new one. Because in the age of consumerism, everything and everyone's disposable. And if you've got any misunderstandings with a person, even if they're supposed to be your 'one and only true love', then just the same as if you're got misunderstandings with your smartphone, you're supposed to just toss it, him or her away flippantly, without a second thought or even a hint of regret, and move on to the next one- because it's newer, shinier, more progressive, expensive and even more disposable, which automatically makes it 'better'.

  • Hmm i would say the misunderstandings stem from lack of communication. I have noticed women or more likely girls will tend to jump to conclusions that do not exist. Guys will do the same but will disregard emotion as being unimportant.

  • Lack of communication , lack of trust and no love and respect. Unable to understand the other persons point of view. Unable to make adjustments and compromises.

  • Women have ZERO logic when it comes to arguing, and their pride is too big for them to admit when they're wrong and to say sorry.

      I could say the same thing about pride when it comes to a lot of men and don't generalize people.

  • How about the option for 'All of the above?'

    Also to add to the list:

    1. Different functions of the sexes
    2. Personality and Mentality
    3. Character traits
    4. Selfishness
    5. The inability to listen
    6. Always talking over each other

    5 & 6 ties into improper communication skills that tend's to be very dangerous, because this applies to everybody they talk to, not just guys.

  • It is definitely lack of communication. But the most important part of communication. Listening. Like the old saying goes... God gave you one mouth but two ears. So you should listen twice as much as you talk. That's where true understanding lies. The listening within the communication.

  • I think all of them partially.

    First of all lack of communication, sometimes we express ourselves in different ways that's why we need to help each other understand what we really want. If we don't tell them what we want they will never know why we feel upset (Same goes for men).

    The truth is that our thoughts about opposite sex's thoughts and actions may be far from truth. Thus we should talk, even about the things that we think we shouldn't talk about, because of our pride or fear...

    Lack of communication can cause playing mind games in some people which can be very exhausting.

  • Misunderstandings in general are usually caused by lack of communication between people. And different ways of expressing feelings sometimes can influence but based on different characters.

  • find out what your personality type is and what your love language is, and then go from there!
    Everyone is different and don't assume someone is doing something to purposely make you angry. Usually they do things because they are just like that, it's just who they are to not understand feelings, and to be logical. It's just who they are to be introvert and want to be by themselves, it's just who they are to not want to spend time with you and want to spend time alone. Remember this!

  • Shitty communication skills.
    For example, if you like anal and your girl doesn't, just give her a surprise one night.
