Us women have to put up with a lot of weird sh*t from men. Sometimes, it seems that they're just completely oblivious to what we want and need, but we just can't figure out how to say it. Luckily, we can all vent about it on Reddit. Here are some of the things guys do to seem sexy, when in reality, they just aren't.

u/Ulcrar asked: Women of Reddit, what is something Men do that they think is sexy/attractive but really isn't?



What makes them think this is a good idea?

On dating websites, post photos of them posing with at least 8 scantily clad women who work at the tropical resort that the guy is staying at.

"See what girls I can pay to stick around me, be thankful I might bone you."

FieserMoep

So disappointing.

Going to into great detail about all the things they're going to do when they get you in bed, and then doing exactly zero of those things.

Don't bring me into the bedroom thinking I'm getting an evening of pleasure when the reality is 10 seconds of jackhammer that's only enjoyable for you.

"I'm going to roll you up in a blanket and feed you pizza."

Alkuam

Yes and yes.

If you have to constantly tell people how big of a deal you are, you're not a big deal. Also don't be a jerk to the staff.

pantsRrad

Yes please. If you're awful to hard working people who just do their jobs, you're awful in general. Such a turn off.

Talk about toxic masculinity.

Dated a guy once that took the masculine thing too far. I couldn't call him cute without him flipping out. He wouldn't ever call anything cute either. Wouldn't even run his hands through my hair because it was too girly.

Guy I'm with now falls asleep playing with my hair and it is HEAVEN.

This is weird.

Giphy

Order my food for me. Not in a cute, I know what she wants kind of way but a dominant a-hole kind of way.

I once was taken on a date, he insisted in driving and drove like a jackass there and back, blasted the same T-pain song over and over, then as we proceeded to order, he ordered everything for me, from the water to my horrible salad. I STILL PAID HALF THE BILL!!!!! One of the worst dates ever. 0 out of 10 would recommended dating this guy.

ChayoteSoup

So annoying.

Being overprotective in a cringy way. I have nothing against a guy who is considerate but I really don't need someone who wants to punch every other guy that just looks at me (or even someone who makes sh*t up like "I heard these strangers over there talking about you" and frowning at them).

Like wtf dude, make me feel safe if you want to but don't make me feel like I'm made of glass.

med1a

YES.

Trusting you know what your girl wants is not the same thing is telling her what she wants.

One is knowing her well enough to give her what she wants the other is doing what you want and telling her she should 'lighten up and give it a try'.

purplestationary6616

We see right through it.

Lying to make themselves look smart. The truth will come out. And when it does, they will look like a dumb*ss.

I was in a relationship with a guy way before all this metoo and the mentioning of red flags. I knew he was lying but I was so sucked in and people just kept saying to give him a benefit of the doubt. He lied about SO MANY things. Like buying Christmas gifts for me and my family and the gifts breaking in the mail. He made my cry at least once a day then broke up over the phone with me.

He knocked up some girl and got married a week later. He's a scumbag with two ugly kids and she's a MLM consultant.

DameNaggySmith

Let's be real, they probably can't,

Talking about how they can "take down" someone. Okay you do that..

krasavetsa

Oh god I HATE when men tell hypothetical stories about the type of guys who would get their a**es kicked if they dared to disrespect them. It's not making you look like a hero, just a violent jack*ss.

QueenBumbleBrii

That's uncomfortable.

I had an ex that would put on his "sultry" voice and tell me it's time for bed.

It really came out sounding creepy and not a bit romantic.

Physically, we had good times but I had to cringe past his verbal intro.

Agreeable-Landscape

I don't think anyone feels comfortable with that.

Giphy

When they stare at you from across the way and don't stop.

I don't feel comfortable when that happens.

RosenrotEis

YES.

Physical violence/fighting. Last thing I want on a night out is for you to get in a fight. It's just a mindless display of testosterone. Give me a man who walks away from a fight any day.

ronald482

No means no.

When they try to "win you over" after you've rejected their advances.

It has never once been attractive behaviour, only really weird for me. But then again I'm not attracted to men so perhaps that's just a me thing. Maybe some guys can make it cute by just showing they won't leave you right off, the ones I've encountered just sort of seem to be pushing themselves on me and I'm not a fan.

LostStripedSock

That's not confidence.

Giphy

Talking about HoW I DoN't CarE ThAt I DrESS wIErd, YoU'Re sO LuCKy To EVen bE WiTH ME when they actually have very low self esteem and push people away because their insecure, but come off as cocky and "confident", and dress funny to stand out and seem like they "aren't like other guys".

dropdead-demigod

WTF?

Trying to have sex with me but judging me if I have sex with them on a first date.

I don't have time for that game.

Do you have something to confess to George? Text "Secrets" or "🤐" to +1 (310) 299-9390 to talk him about it.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
