6 Secrets Men Rarely Tell

10 months ago

What do we know about men? They will always help a damsel in distress; they love football; most of them are exquisitely handsome with a beard. And that’s it — at least according to most girls.

Bright Side would like to share some secrets told by men themselves. Painfully.

6. They need moments of doing nothing.

It may sound unexpected, but they don’t always want to be at the head of things, making serious decisions and being responsible for the consequences. Now and then, men just want to have some time for themselves to enjoy moments of peace and quiet.

5. Men don’t notice trifles.

Men think globally. Just accept it, and don’t try to make them pay attention to little details. Maybe you should even follow their example because women often concentrate on trifles too much, which takes away all the joy from a situation as a whole.

4. Nonsensical thoughts are a great rest for the mind.

Can you imagine that men don’t actually spend each minute of their lives thinking about how to pay the mortgage, provide for their family, or save the world? It turns out they quite often think of some nonsense.

3. They have fears too.

​​​​​​Men are involuntary victims of the hero image created for them by modern society. It compels them to keep a straight face in any circumstances, which is hard because they fear the unknown as much as anyone, doubting their decisions and worrying.

2. They appraise every passing woman.

A man will always stare, evaluating a passing pretty lady. Mankind exists, in fact, thanks to man’s ability to appraise women by their looks, choosing the best one to become the mother of his children. It’s in their nature, and it can’t be avoided.

1. They appreciate support.

Men need emotional support as much as women — it’s important for anyone, anywhere. The hectic pace of today’s life and emotional stress don’t make any difference between genders.

In 13 years together, married for 11, I have never, ever seen my husband ogle another woman. I don't think for a moment that he never looks, it's just that he has never done it in such a way that I am aware of it in any way, shape, or form.(& I am an extremely vigilant person that is typically hyper aware of my surroundings) He has never made me feel "less than" because he just HAD to stare. I still am in awe over the things that set him apart from other men, and he is a very masculine man, not a passive, "Yes Ma'am!" beta type one might expect by my limited description. He just respects me as his wife and knows he would only be making his life harder by triggering any insecurities in me that checking out chicks would cause to surface. Plus, he knows if he just has patience, most times I'll end up saying she's super hot 1st, I like girls too.....A LOT. lol


well, women look too, they just have the capacity to take a "picture" with their eyes, thus saving the image for a long time, so they do not have to stare, just a quick look will suffice, men, on the other hand, have no such mechanism, so we have to stare for a while to take it all in.
