My Mom would make this comment when she and my dad were married. I would look at her and think, not all men!
Not all men hit women, not all men cuss at women...but when it comes to everyday common decisions most men are alike! They are ready to protect their kids, family and do everything they can to provide.
Recently we had a couple move next to us. They are younger than my husband and I, but when we talk to them it is like a reflection of me and my husband! Her husband thinks and reacts to things just as my husband would. Then I started thinking, maybe my mom was right...maybe all men are alike in certain ways.

Well to an extent all men are a like just as all women are alike. We do have certain biological triggers and impulses that are all shared to a degree in normal people.
Like in men, the need to provide and protect, the willingness to fight for loved ones, our sex drive, our logical style of thinking, our lesser emotional involvement in everyday decisions, our lesser affinity for conversation, etc. etc.
Or in women, the need to care and nurture, the drive to be a mother, gentleness, ability to empathize, need to appear aesthetically beautiful than practically beautiful, to search for safety and avoid risk, the ability and need to care for the nest.
Ok I'm sort of just pulling these out of my ass, but I'm not far off and you see my point. So some things are biologically instinctive, but many things also aren't. Like just because one guy is a cheater, a lair, or abusive, doesn't mean all men are like that. Those are personality traits and aren't specific to the gender, just the person specifically.0
