I've learned there are a lot more unhappy and confused people than I thought. That guys have a surprising depth of emotion and that a lot of girls have a surpring lack of. A lot of preconceived notions I had have been changed. Maybe most importantly: that the pain I feel is shared by many others.
Most Helpful Guy
What I have learned about women. I had gotten so much bad advise from women, that I had no idea what to do. I was taught they were all sunshine and rainbows. That all women cared about was finding a guy that would treat them well. Turns out they are just as shallow as us, except they aren't honest with men about what they really like in a man. I am still not sure if women understand it themselves, or if they are afraid of being judged for being honest about what they want.
What I have learned about men. I learned that most men have the same emotions I have, but won't admit it, because he will be made fun of and ridiculed for having emotions, by both men and women.
Neither gender feels free to be themselves and this has created mass confusion as to what the other gender is like. There are differences, but we are more alike than most people seem to believe.2
