Guys are already so weird about girl things. So why would they want to know everything? No, girls keep their own secrets and for good reason. Dudes aren't ready.

u/stylebender asked Reddit:

What are some "girl secrets" guys don't know about?

Here were some of those answers.

The Hair Is Everywhere


The weird stray hairs on your chin, neck, cheek. I had one on my neck that I never knew about until recently. I tweezed it off, and it was about 3 inches long. How did I not see this before?!




Lots of women don't primarily take anticonception pills because they have sex and don't want to get pregnant, but for various health reasons, e.g. severe acne, passing out from blood loss during period, etc.


No Sharing


I frequently have snacks in my purse. I don't tell because I don't want to share.




I was with someone and I reached around and unclasped my bra and did the thing where you take off the straps and then just pull the bra out of your shirt and my partner thought it was f-ckin' sorcery. The look on his face was priceless.


Check In


My friends and I in college would always use the restroom as sort of a half-time throughout the night

"How are you feeling? Do you think you're too drunk? Are you cool with that guy dancing on you? Are we leaving separately or together?"

That sort of stuff was always asked.


Notice Me


If I'm putting my legs in your lap it's because I just shaved and I want you to point it out because I took time out of my day to shave and be smooth for you.


Science: Fascinating, Yet Gross


A lot of women on their fertile days of the month have a type of vaginal discharge that's the consistency of a jellyfish. It helps to guide sperm from the vagina and into the uterus to hang out until an egg can come down and be fertilized.


Multiple Use


Bras do not get washed after every wear.


Painfully Obvious


When guys try to act cool in front of girls, it's painfully obvious and almost always goes awry.


For Me


Those long trips to the bathroom are meditative. A personal recharge. Check ourselves out, touch-up makeup and hair, examine our whole look, strike a pose or two. We are Rocky and we are Mickey Goldmill. Yes b-tch, you there, look at that hair. Your eyebrows are f-cking phenomenal. Insert a few selfies that you never end up posting, but are totally post worthy. I come out of that bathroom feeling new. I'm ready for you, world, you best be ready for me. Hair flip.

Also I just drink a lot of water.


Lube Lab


If we whip out lube, or ask you to use some, it is NOT meant as a slight against you or your sexual abilities. While we do self-produce lubricant, it is often times more pleasurable (for both parties) if a little extra is added. Also, naturally produced lubricant dries faster, and has a rather unpleasant feeling to it once it dries. I wish men would stop being so prudish or offended by the idea of lube.

MEN, buy some lube (or ask your girl to pick some up of her choosing)!! And DON'T BE AFRAID TO USE IT. Make sure it's one that is water-based if you're using condoms, and try to keep it as natural as possible (skip the flavored kind if you're using for intercourse).


Just Call Me Mary Poppins


I keep just about anything you might need during the day in my purse. Band-aids, pads, snacks, a vibrator, etc. I even found a mini water gun in there a week ago. Purses are f-cking magical.




Alright since no one else has brought it up and I have vaguely mentioned it --

Symptoms of premenopause don't always start in your 40s or 50s. It's not unheard of to begin in your 20s and its actually not super uncommon for it to happen in your 30s.

Hormones are weird, especially in women. And it's likely helpful for the hetero men here to understand a little about it if you intend to share your life with a woman, f-cking buckle in.

My mom started premenopause when she was my age, 30, and didn't actually go through it until she was ~55. So 25 years of weird hormonal things they never even tell us about.

I honestly didn't know about how this presents until recently when I starting showing symptoms.


So Scary


I know several women that, before they go on a first date with a guy, they'll share their location with a friend and text them that guy's full name... just in case.


The mark of a great movie is one that you can watch over and over again.

Although, it isn't only great movies that have endless watchability.

Indeed, sometimes the movies we find ourselves wanting to revisit over and over again wouldn't even come close to being on the list of the top ten best films of all time.

But whatever they may, or may not, lack in quality, it's the comfort of revisiting these characters, places, and adventures that make return visits mandatory.

Particularly when we're feeling down.

To this day, I get sad when I think of the show Freaks and Geeks and how it was unfairly canceled. Have you seen it? If not, you totally should. Many of the people on the show became huge stars.

Seth Rogen? Linda Cardellini? James Franco? That whole cast is a who's who of great talent. Oh, and the writing? Excellent. It's a show that's funny and has pathos.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor me_rebirth asked the online community,

"Which TV show cancelation are you still frustrated about?"

People Share The Best Research Rabbit Holes They've Ever Gone Down

Thanks to Google, many of our life's questions can be answered with the click of a button.

But in the digital information age, most of us are never really satisfied with just one definitive answer. Sometimes, there is more to learn as the revelation of one thing can lead to many more inquiries.

Say you're watching a show and one of the actors look familiar but you can't quite put a name to the face. So you IMDB the show and you are finally able to identify the actor after being distracted by the frustration of not knowing who they were.

But then you look at their long list of credits and discover other actors you didn't know were somehow associated with the previous actor in question. So you do more digging.

Such is the phenomenon of going down the proverbial rabbit hole.
