It's a rarely talked about problem: Being a man is difficult. Sure, men don't give birth or go through puberty in the same way women do, but there are certain traits forced upon men that seem just a tad challenging, as evidenced by the men below.


Reddit user, u/justjuiced22, wanted to hear the hidden truths when they asked:

Male users of reddit, what is the most annoying thing about being a guy?

They Like To Be Told They're Pretty, Too

Getting very few/no compliments from my SO.

I want to be told nice things about myself too.

Aneides

Every. Day.

Giphy

I hate shaving my face so often.

I'd say get one of those home laser things, but apparently they're for every type of hair except male facial hair.

...also apparently not for dark skin, ya racist lasers

Vandechoz

Don't Be Afraid. What Could Happen?...Except Hearing No...

Always being expected to make the first move towards the woman.

We Have Next To NO Control Over It

The way pee sprays in unpredictable directions sometimes

Flex, Bro

Tough guys always looking for a fight.

There's a point in middle school/high school where other guys want to beat you up just for existing

Welp, Time To Go Die

Being the person to go check out the noise that just happened in a creepy place, to promptly be brutally murdered by some evil demon spirit

I'm Just Talking To Them!

People instantly assuming you're a pedophile when you try to talk to younger girls. Like can't I just be nice. Girls aren't judged when they talk to younger guys.

I remember coming to a crosswalk and waiting for the lights to change, the little 3, maybe 4 year old girl waved at me (she was right next to me, holding hands with her mother). I said "awe hello", and proceeded to look straight forward after that, waiting for the lights of course. The looks I got for just that were surprising. Like what do you want me to do, just ignore this little girl that waved?

EdisonClayton

Just. Constant. Shifting.

Always having to move my lil guy so it isn't uncomfortable

We're Not All Bruce Willis

Giphy

Baldness.

Some can make it work for them, but most can't.

Pitching A Tent Anywhere

Used to be getting random boners at inappropriate times.

Now, it's not being able to get a boner at appropriate times.

When you go on a job interview, the last thing you probably never think about is asking a question.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
