It varies from person to person, however on average guys approach the world from a more logical and analytical view, while girls will often respond based on feelings and emotions. I'm not saying that being emotional is bad, however when someone wants advice they don't want to hear how other people feel, they want to know what other people think. In addition to this @AdamThomas is right about men needing to initiate for dating, so most of the dating advice that a man will give comes across as more active while often women will be passive. All that said. these are just generalizations and any woman could be analytical and offer great advice, just like any guy could give emotional opinions, I'm just saying that most of fit the stereotype.
I think it's equal except for when it comes to practical dating advice.
All a girl has to do to get guys interested is not be weird and not be ugly as fuck. Girls can be completely passive in the dating game and still have plenty of male interest - whether it's from the guys they want or not, it's better than none at all. I see girls say that they've been rejected loads of times or that they gave up approaching men after being rejected so much, then when I ask them how many times it's like 1-2. Makes me laugh because I've lost count of how many times I've been rejected, and if I were to give up after the first I know for a fact that I'd still be a virgin. So their advice is usually along the lines of "don't change, just keep doing what you're doing and the right girl will come eventually, if they don't like you as you are they're not worth your time, just be more social" and my absolute favourite: "it will just happen".
As we know men are expected to do pretty much everything: approach the girl, ask for her number, ask her out on a date, make the first move for a kiss or whatever, initiate sex etc. And a man who doesn't know how to do any of that and never figures it out usually ends up being a virgin because unless he's attractive it's very unlikely that a girl is going to pursue him. I was a shy kid, and I used to get "friend-zoned" all the time because of that, and also because I was skinny. So I had to hit the gym, grow some balls and learn how to talk to women. For a man in that position the worst thing you can do is follow any of the advice that women typically give because you'll get nowhere.
Nothing "just happens" for men. My gf had a one night stand with a friend before she met me and she says that she regretted it and didn't mean for it to happen, she says they got drunk and "it just happened". It made me laugh, and she was shocked when I said the dude would have been planning to fuck her the whole time.
I really think it comes down to the question and the type of question.
Girls seem to be better at the behaviour-understanding questions and the dating/flirting questions. Guys seem to be better at answering the "how to keep healthy" questions.
concidering this site is mainly female-based, and most questions from females are directed to guys. So less guys to answer a question = bigger chance of a guy getting "most helpful answer". While less guys asking questions, more girls answering -> smaller chance of "most helpful"
I think women are more likely to click on Most Helpful. A lot of guys, esp younger ones, won't bother. It also depends on the person. for instance I really only am interested in the womans answers. I usually only even look at questions posted by women. sometimes one posted by a guy will catch my eye but very rarely. So 99.999% of the time my MH will be a woman
Guys are fixers and problem solvers. If we see something is wrong, we want to do something about it. We take great pride in having the ability to put things right. This can lead to 'white knighting' and the desire to come charging to the rescue where it's not wanted.
guys give shitty advice when it comes to pussy (at least me, I really have no clue about cats. I see it equaly as people don't always answer your stuff in a objective way and some just answer stuff by the way they feel or feel at the moment
It depends on the issue. A question where a woman is clearly overthinking and getting emotional, men are better. Men have a more direct approach to matters and women can tangle themselves in knots.
Women tend to be better at the emotional and support questions. Like abuse or rape or something; I tend to think with 'damaged' people they need a gentle approach and sometimes men's directness can come across a little TOO direct.
Sometimes I do think guys can be better at giving advice. They are often more logical and better at telling "the truth" without being vague. Many guys think more logical than girls, that is just how it is. Genes.
But at the same time, I do think girls can be better as well, but in the end it depends on the question and the situation.
It really depends on the topic. A man can tell you more about how to catch a specific fish and how to select the proper tools for a DIY project, while women can tell you how to properly apply foundation and how to deal with emotional situations. Every person is different, therefore, they give different advice. So, with that in mind, I chose option C.
So far the guys here I have met are nice and they have a lot of wisdom. Girls do too but no offense i'm kinda more interested in hearing what guys have to say. But it probably depends on my mood too. XD
