Men are from Mars, and women are from Venus... or something like that.

It's all crap, by the way. All you need to do is communicate, but that seems easier said than done, doesn't it?

After Redditor ChadBrowGer asked the online community, "Men of Reddit, what's the hardest thing to explain to women?" the online community got quite candid.


"Sometimes..."

Sometimes I'm not in an emotional or mental state to be ready for the bedroom. I need romance to get me there sometimes too.

"When you ask me..."

When you ask me how my day was or what I did today, nothing in my day usually stands out as special, so I just don't remember. I usually don't remember what I do, I just live.

"I'm seriously..."

I'm seriously not checking you out every time you walk by in the office.

I turn my head for damn near everything that enters my periphery, you're really not that special.

"When we say..."

When we say we need time or space, that's exactly what we need. It's not code for "you need to try harder."

"My ex and I..."

Sometimes I'm just horny, but (in a committed relationship) sometimes I look at you and I'm just so in love that I want to be as close and intimate with you as I can, which is sex. My ex and I had different love languages, and she would worry that I don't love her as much as she loves me which was just crazy because I was head over heels for her at all times. Trying to explain that that really close, lovey sex was one of the ways I showed her exactly how deeply I was in love with her, but she didn't get it.

"It's just a physical response..."

Sometimes an erection just happens. We don't control the thing, It's a physical response that could literally be from nothing.

"When we say..."

When we say we don't care we really don't care. Yes we can have an opinion on something, but when we say we don't care that means our opinion isn't strong enough to sway us either way on something.

"I trust my friends..."

Sometimes (this is me personally so I can't say it's common) the struggle not to share emotions isn't as much the worry of backlash from society or friends, etc. It's more just a conflict within ourselves to verbalize and come out with it. I trust my friends with respecting how I feel, I just can't get it out because I'm fighting myself.

"How much..."

How much compliments mean to us. It's a different type of happy when a guy gets complimented.

"I really want to see..."

I really want to see if we'll get along well enough to date but I'm horrible at maintaining a conversation without being too "safe" or too "out there."

There are few things more annoying than when you are seeking advice and someone responds with a boring platitude that helps no one. Believe it or not, if you choose to provide advice, it needs to be specific to the situation and shouldn't be dressed up in trite phrasing. Does saying, "Keep your head up" actually contribute anything if that's all you have to say when someone comes to you in search of a listening ear?

But this goes deeper than just advice, to be fair. Some of us are sick of greedy corporations that stress the importance of being a "family" while refusing to pay proper wages. Still more of us are tired of people using certain language when other language can suffice.

After Redditor BensReddits asked the online community, "What is a phrase you absolutely hate hearing?" people shared their stories.

Dating is difficult––and truth be told, I don't know how anyone can do it right now, what with a pandemic going on and all. Just the thought stresses me out. Dating is especially hard for people who defy expectations in a heteronormative society. Take bisexuals, for example.

We all know someone who really cannot figure out even the most basic thing without copious amounts of help. But when you meet someone who is completely and totally past all help, how do you even begin to try to help them get along?

We're all well aware of the weird, horrible, predatory things men do when attracted to women. But what about when women are the culprits?
