50 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

50 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

Yes, there is a list! A well protected, closely guarded document that goes beyond ‘what to wear on the first date’ and delves deep into the things that really matter to the tough ones. Men chase women and women woo men, that’s the way it has always been. But does that have to be so black and white? What about all the shades of grey i.e. those things that men hide when chasing women and the things that women must know when on a men-wooing spree. Now, this is not some ‘out of worldly’ info that was left on earth by the Martians! This piece, my dear friends, is a compilation of things that your men won’t share with you, for reasons aplenty, but expect you to know. Look at this piece as a storehouse of Grandma’s Secrets; and trust us, they know it all. After all, the subtle art of seduction took roots ages before we even walked this planet. Go on now, read the following pointers and try to understand what are the things guys wish girls knew. From space to sex, we have it all right here.

Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

1. Asking girls out is a big deal for us. So, just because we are acting cool doesn’t mean we aren’t shivering inside. It won’t hurt to appreciate the effort.


2. Going on a date is a 2-way thing. Taking an active interest in helping us decide the place would go a long way in letting us know you are in.


3. Yes, dolling up takes time and is really flattering but please, please be on time. We may not say this up front but being late isn’t fashionable and no, it isn’t sweet either; no matter how you look.


4. Also, being ‘fashionably late’ isn’t every guy’s thing. More often than not, we like people, including us, to be on time. Especially when we come to meet you!


5. So you are a vegan..big deal! I like my meat and you going all “Eww..” doesn’t add any feathers to your ‘green’ cap. Just let me keep my choices.


6. We aren’t all pigs. And even if we are, we don’t go out with Miss Pigs. So freshening up and smelling nice for a date won’t hurt. But please, hold it on the makeup.


7. Don’t be an open book. We like a mystery.


8. Ex-talk is a turn off; even worse than bad breath.


9. Keep the conversation alive. Unrequited flirting never turned on any sensible guy.


10. We don’t ask a personal question on dates. And while asking about our best friends is ok, whether or not we get along with our dads is really none of your business on the first date.


11. Reach for the bill but don’t pay. We’d like to be with women who are independent but establishing our chivalry is equally important.


12. Eat as humans please; we don’t date birds. Getting too finicky about food is not classy anymore.


13. Future talk on the first date should be restricted to career and general fun things. If you discuss marriage and kids, don’t be surprised if there is no callback..ever!


14. You want me to listen, pay attention to me too. My game talk is as important as your girl talk.

15. Drink. Don’t get drunk!

50 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

16. Guys don’t dislike sharing food. It is just annoying when you order a healthy salad only to dig into our fries and desserts the moment they arrive. We won’t judge you for eating.


17. ‘Am I looking fat’ is a double-edged sword. A ‘no’ is never believed while a ‘yes’ would only be another soup; please spare us the agony.


18. Shopping is our hell. And asking us for opinions that you know you wouldn’t agree with is hardly an ego boost. Also, a little secret – guys don’t get colors. We don’t know teal from turquoise or steel grey from metallic grey. There are 7 colors in the rainbow and that’s where it ends for us.


19. We like our space. We love you but we love ourselves too. So, frowning upon that little beer time with the guys or a little quiet time on weekends or even a while longer in the bed alone is a human rights violation. We don’t frown on your shower time, you don’t get to frown on our ‘lone time’.


20. If we like you, we would want you all to ourselves. You talking to anyone else is out of the question. It isn’t a way of getting our attention; it is just making us insecure and we don’t like being that way.


21. When we love, we love. Screaming ‘I love you’ from rooftops or whispering sweet nothings have to be a one-time thing; real men have other things also on their minds.


22. Yes, we try to impress you, but to an extent; after that, it is full-on moves. So while a lunch date could be an attempt to get your attention, a long drive after dinner is a pretty straight “your place or mine”!


23. Do you want to gossip? Bring it on! Just don’t expect us to participate always.


24. Feel free to compliment us as much as you like. We love to hear how well we are doing; it does the fragile male ego a lot of good you know.


25. You may be a sucker for romance novels and the stories they tell but in the real world, if you like a guy, you can tell him that.

50 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

26. What shopping is for you, driving is for us. It’s not about getting from A to B; it’s about a guy and his machine bonding.


27. Speaking of machines, our first cars and bikes ALWAYS hold a special place in our hearts. It doesn’t mean there is any less space for you in there.


28. We know our machine and we know our directions; even when we don’t. No back seat driving, please.


29. Just like you can’t tell us what your friends talk about, we can’t always tell you what we guys talk about. It does not equate to hiding things from you.


30. Being cute or a little silly at times is fine. Being cute and silly all the time is lame.


31. Don’t play too hard to get or you won’t get anything!


32. Remember that male ego? Well, it DOES NOT like being compared to your ex-boyfriend or other male friends! In fact, comparing ‘present’ us to the ‘past’ us isn’t pretty either.


33. Face it... Porn rocks!!!


34. Men live for 2 things – catfights and girl-on-girl action.


35. We know all humans fart; we just choose to believe that women don’t. Please let our Utopian world be!


36. Game time is our time. Once my butt is parked is parked on the couch with the TV in full view, don’t expect me to budge till the game is on.


37. If we stammer or seem to be suffering from spoonerism while talking to you, it means we really like you.


38. Miniskirts vs brains?? Brains win!! Though miniskirts put up a darn good fight.


39. ‘Fine’ & ‘Whatever’ are not the words you end conversations and/or arguments with.


40. Most of the times we don’t mean to hurt you. Even when we do, we end up doing things wrong.
Guys never kiss and tell...is what we’d have you believe.


41. Guys aren’t psychic; subtle, strong or even obvious hints have no effect on us. You have to say what you want to say.


42. Sex? Hell Yeah!!

50 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

43. Even better when you initiate.


44. Contrary to popular belief, sex is not the only thing on our mind; there’s food too.


45. If you don’t like my mates or family, don’t give me a tough time about it.


46. Guy’s night outs are just as important as girl’s day outs.


47. Toilet seats are not complicated pieces of engineering… if it’s up, put it down!


48. Fit women are a turn on; female Arnie’s? Not so much.


49. Anything said six months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All comments become null and void after seven days.


50. Brad Pitt gets paid to look good. We do it for you. Appreciate the effort!


And now that a fair amount of relevant information has been passed on to all the willing readers, let’s talk commandments.

The 10 Commandments

Thou shalt not play word or mind games with us.
Thou shalt not interfere in the beer & sports time
Thou shalt respect the time I spend with ‘the guys’
Thou shalt not hurt the fragile male ego. It’s FRAGILE!!!
Thou shalt not use tears as weapons.
Thou shalt not ask us questions through the bathroom door.
Exes are in the past and thou shalt keep them there.
Thou shalt refrain from using us for making others jealous. It isn’t cool!
Not all guys are jerks!
Checking out other girls doesn’t tantamount to cheating on you.

Men aren’t as complicated as they are made out to be. Just a simple willingness to dive into that beer filled brain, weird as it is, is enough to give you insights into a male mind’s functioning. Don’t believe us? Try the above points out and be as subtle as you can be. Drilling your guy with direct questions can never get you anywhere!

  • This list is very gender stereotypical.

    For one, I don't care for shopping nor do I ask if I'm fat or care about marriage or kids any of these 'girl' thoughts or questions. I don't care if a guy loves his car or wants to watch porn or hang out with the guys. I don't play mind games with anyone or use tears as weapons.
    And what is this girl talk or gossip you speak of? My female friends and I talk of dinosaurs and taxidermy.

    On the flip side, I know plenty of dudes who couldn't care less about the game or cars. Not every guy's favourite drink is beer and a lot of them I know aren't always thinking of sex or food.
    I'm guessing you'd be surprised to learn dudes are generally the more sentimental ones in relationships. There's been surveys done to test this.
    Many many emotional guys. All the dudes I know tend to be the more emotional ones. Hell, a friend of mine has the worst case of baby fever and marriage I've ever seen. He's even worse than the movies!

    And no, none of these dudes I speak of are gay.

  • Based on my long term relationship with my boyfriend I have to differ. Some of these points may be valid for you personally, but doesn't serve well as a generalization.

    3 &4. My boyfriend is ALWAYS late and almost always makes me wait on him when we are grtting ready to go out.

    6. My boyfriend takes me as i am. There are days i can't be bothered to care and he doesn't think twice about having me on his arm. But there are days i really put effort into my make up and he always compliments it.

    7. I opened up to my boyfriend very early in our relationship. We skipped a lot of the bull shit chasing that can sometimes happen at the beginning of relationships. It made us stronger, faster.

    8. My boyfriend i openly discuss our exes. Past relationships is how we develop what we currently want in our relationships. We share our experiences and discuss how that shapes us as a couple

    11. We usually go dutch in dates. Occasionally he treats me. Occasionally i treat him. His ego is hardly damaged

    12. While no, im not afraid to order a lot of food, sometimes he orders stuff i didn't know i wanted. And he takes this into account while he orders.

    14. We genuinely take interest in each others conversations. Occasionally we do hit each other with "I'm sorry hin, i know thia topic excites you but I really dont care about it"and thats ok

    15. My boyfriend definitely takes care of my drunk ass and sometimes i take care of his

    17. When i ask how i look in something i want a genuine answer. Sometimes clothes aren't flattering, tell me!

    18. My boyfriend almosy always takes me shopping with him or we organize to do our shopping together. Its fun and having someone to help you pick items never hurts. I like my bfs opinions and suggestions and vice versa

    19. My boyfriend doesn't know what personal time is, he's either with me or with friends or with family. At the beginning of our relationship he struggled to grasp that i needed alone time to recharge

    20. Near the beginning of our relationship we had a plain discussion of "ok. We are now mutually exclusive"up until that point, yeah i was talking to other guys

    • 21. My boyfriend has no problem screaming to the world his love for me. In fact he probably says i love you 10 times more than i say it

      22. My boyfriend again had a frank discussion about sex. When each of us were ready for it. Yes he was ready sooner than me, but when I expressed that i needed more time, he didn't try and persuade me.

      23. My boyfriend is my best friend and im his. We gossip like 13 year old girls

      26. My boyfriend likes his car, yes, but he no car nut. He only drives us everywhere because i HATE driving

      28. Im a great co-pilot thanks very much

      29. My boyfriend and have mutual friends. My boyfriend pretty much tells me everything , play by play if i wanted.

      32. Comparing yourself to your past is how to measure growth

      33. While my boyfriend and I have been honest about our porn viewing we share similar views. Most of it is annoying and obnoxious and why watch porn when you have an amazing real life partner?

      34. No. Just no.

      35. Everyone farts, get over it

    • Great reply! The " checking out other chicks doesn't equate to cheating" i disagree with. I'm not stupid of course we all see beautiful people but if you're truly checking out another person you are scouting for options. You belong single. Period. That shit is not an excuse. Boys will be boys bullshit. Men are not boys and don't need more than one mate to satisfy them if they are truly into their mate.

    • @Engageme absolutely. My boyfriend and i can admit to each other that visually appeasing people exist but we aren't just walking around checking people out.

  • Great take and an entertaining list and I realize you put some thought into it but other than 42, and maybe 48, none of these things occupy space in my head. If it was that complicated I would have quit a long time ago. “Men aren’t as complicated as they are made out to be.” No, I am much simpler, primal and basic than this list.

  • So maybe half of these I wish girls knew. A little more than half are true.

    But a lot are just not true– at least for me they aren't. And I'd rather girls did not assume they're true. Gossip is not fun, catfights are just pathetic, and dont even reach for the bill; and I can't drive, don't give a fuck about sports, and don't have any guy friends.

    So, this list seems like more of a "what this type of guys wished you knew" list.

    • True.

      Remember, if all of this stuff starts really mattering to your guy, it's because the sex isn't good. Otherwise, 90% of it doesn't matter at all, and we're much cooler when approaching the other 10%. Also, it's been my experience that though it will not completely take away woman's need to obsess and overanalyze, it will definitely improve her frame of mind and lower the frequency and intensity (provided that you actually satisfied her) of the madness.

      So, for all of us, if we take care of biology, and do our best to be considerate of each other, we will be ok.

      Simple, but not easy...

    • True, this guy is tripping and needs to get laid. 60 Only really applies to those who are bad in bed, men or women. If you take care of each other in bed, solving the rest becomes easier. 60 issues magically drops to 6 or less. Doesn't mean men and women don't still have relationship needs, but issues are easier to address when you've directed that base drive where it rightfully belongs. It's easier to discuss things in a positive frame of mind.

      Abracadabra!

    • Yeah I have a list of maybe four or five dealbreakers and that's it. I'm pretty flexible otherwise.

  • Ehhh... Speak for yourself. Too long to read.

    I immediately disagreed with:

    Not being an open book - Get out with that childish shit.
    Not paying for the bill - Go all the way or don't go at all. Splitting the costs is the way to go.
    We live for what we make it to be, not for your 2 reasons.
    I don't like beer or 99% of all alcoholic beverages.

  • 10, 13, 19

    I've had friends ruin it with girls by doing those things. They go on the date. After never hear from her again. The fucking idiot thinks that's what girls want to hear. In fact had a friend ask a girl how many dudes she fucked before even going on a date with her. I've seen more guys fuck up on those steps than women. I've been on a lot of dates and no chick has ever asked me any of those questions.

    #19, girls definitely are more clingy than guys. But I've seen my friends and overhear other guys who are extremely clingy put their girls on a leash.

    I just think that is fucking weird and unhealthy. I get it but at the same time you are too insecure. To anyone who is dating someone who is clingy someone who can't breathe air without you definitely has mental problems. That is not normal. I just recently ended it with a chick who was borderline psycho clingy with me.
