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."

LeaveForNoRaisin

"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."

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"
