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.

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.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.

They get to witness the lead-up to the couple's important, deeply symbolic day. Sitting at the table in that context offers those industry professionals a glimpse of the mundane dynamics of couples before the big event.
