Men, women, gender fluid... we all have secrets to tell. When in the search for the love we will ALL play any game, choose any pawn. Bros put on a good facade of "I'm not hiding anything," but that's a secret as well. If only we could unleash our secrets, and just be honest. Gentlemen... you first.

Redditor u/mustafarangoon52 wanted the men out there to fess on a few things.... What are some "guy secrets" girls don't know about?



How do I look?

Giphy

If you compliment my appearance I will probably remember forever. I still remember when a girl in college told me I look nice with my beard when I first grew it out. I've had a beard ever since... Reddit

Straight Talk....

Your chances of getting what you want out of us are infinitely higher if you tell us directly. DepressedBard

I can vouch for this. I was upset with my SO for not picking up what I thought were clear hints, when he responded frustrated with, "I DON'T UNDERSTAND HINTS JUST TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT WOMAN!" He really helped me communicate better. I don't know why we grow up thinking we can't directly ask for things. Kris10tx

I'm Listening.... 

When people come crying to us, our first inclination is to fix the problem.

Since this is (often) not possible, lead with something along the lines of "Can I vent for a minute?" Or anything that signals to us this is just a time for active listening, rather than a problem solving session. realbadaccountant

Let me Breathe! 

When we want to be alone, it's not that we don't want to be around you, it's that we don't want to be around anyone for a bit. aestusveritas

I get this one way too well, I go through bouts where I just don't want to talk to anyone regardless of how close we are. Chimonakimi

Be You!

Giphy

We don't care how popular (or unpopular) you are with other women. So it shouldn't factor into how you value yourself when dating. Mongo0se

Discuss he Weave!

We really do think your hair is good. It looked good before and after you got a hair cut. If looked good curly and it looked good straight. It looked good when you woke up and when you made it. As long as its shaped like the hair we gave girls on stick figures when we were 5 years old, we think it looks good. banjohusky95

Beauty is Subjective...

As an older man, we don't expect you to look like a supermodel as we age together. Yes, at times I do see you as I did 30 years ago and every wrinkle and flaw disappears. Yes, there are times I see every wrinkle and flaw, and know how you got every one of them. They are beautiful too. Duesizzle

Gotta Eat! 

Often times, we genuinely don't care where we go to eat because we're just hungry and want food. Any food. As long as you eat some too.

I'm glad someone liked my toilet comment enough to give me gold. i promise to use this responsibly. Rabidrabitz

Stand Up Straight....

If we tie down anything in the back of a pickup truck or trailer it's physically impossible for us not to stand back and say "that's not going anywhere." Johnchuk

This is shockingly accurate. Might even be accompanied by shaking the object a bit, and looking at your friend for confirmation that he also saw how much it's not going anywhere. Komfortable

Oh the Pee...

Giphy

At the urinals we typically pee on soap bars, ice or plastic mats to reduce splash damage and smell. GuessImAUofTKidNow

Do you mean bar soap or a urinal cake? Because I've had the pleasure of never having to pee on soap or ice yet in my life. RaleighRedd

Just Ask... 

Guys also like to be walked up to and asked out. IAmMohit

My current girlfriend, soon to be fiancée, asked me out. We worked at the same company, and she just came up to me and said "hey justyburger, I think you and I should go get dinner tonight." I asked her who else was going, and she said "I think it'd be nice if it was just you and me." So yea, that was pretty cool. REDDIT

Aren't We All?

I'm secretly an emotional wreck, I just hide it. ShakaWTWF

:-(

Big hugs big fella. We have emotions too.

How ya doing buddy? spiegro

Show me the flaws...

As an older man, we don't expect you to look like a supermodel as we age together. Yes, at times I do see you as I did 30 years ago and every wrinkle and flaw disappears. Yes, there are times I see every wrinkle and flaw, and know how you got every one of them. They are beautiful too. Duesizzle

TRUTH FIRST! 

Your chances of getting what you want out of us are infinitely higher if you tell us directly. DepressedBard

The Nothing Box! 

Men have a box that our minds go into. It's called the "Nothing Box."

So next time you ask a man what he's thinking about and he answers with "nothing." There is a good chance he's telling you the truth. AmericanPixel

I hurt too...

idk if other guys feel this too, but I'm always afraid of accidentally making women feel uncomfortable in my presence, for example when i happen to walk in the same direction as a woman in front of me for a while. And I'm not even interested in women in the first place. juicydaddy69

Let me Speak! 

When people come crying to us, our first inclination is to fix the problem.

It's just flesh...

After a shower, we have no problem drying our balls and face with the same towel. Most of the time we try to dry the face first, then the sack. But sometimes we have to go back to the face. We just hope we use an uncontaminated part of the towel. prospecthummmer

Let me Be!

You Look GOOD.. Always!! 

We really do think your hair is good. It looked good before and after you got a hair cut. If looked good curly and it looked good straight. It looked good when you woke up and when you made it. As long as its shaped like the hair we gave girls on stick figures when we were 5 years old, we think it looks good. banjohusky95

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
