I don't know if it's only me, but it seems to me that guys get away with making mistakes *early on* more than women do. In the sense of if a guy unintentionally messes sth up, the woman will still be willing to discuss it and let it go (as long it's not something severe). But if a woman untentionally messes sth up (also as long as it's not sth severe) and the guy gets even slightly hurt, he runs away immediately and doesn't want to discuss anything.
I'm not only talking about personal experience, but also some others I've heard. It's like we're expected to be fully aware of everything and knowing everything from the get go. Like guys expect us to be seemingly perfect initially. It's just not fair.
