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."

It's a career with long, laborious hours.

I hated science classes.

As soon as I could I ran.

But it follows me.

Because science can be downright disturbing.

That's why I blocked out so many of the details.

"What's the scariest thing that science has proven real?"
