They say men and women are so different in relationships. There are dozens of relationship books and theories surrounding our differences. Sure, we are different in many ways but here are some principals that may surprise you about many similarities.
#1 Both men and women get hormonal-induced mood swings.
Women may be under fire most because their ‘swings’ are predictable regularly by menstruation. According to askmen.com guys get moody as a result of hormones too. Their frequency isn’t predictable by a monthly ‘flow’ so there’s no physical proof that’s easily noticeable.
#2 A woman can be in the mood, just as often as a man…But …
Men and women both love sex. Thing is different people like different approaches. Many times, a woman won’t respond to the same way a man would when it comes to ‘let’s get it on’. What turns her on is different. There is a stigma that men like it more than women, but I guarantee if the process was gone about in another way, there would be a lot more shenanigans going on.
#3 Men listen to sappy songs, enjoy movies about love and like ‘cute’ things too.
Some share it with their sweethearts, others admire romantic things secretly. But it’s not uncommon for them to like the more tender things in life like their female counterparts. It’s just appreciated in a different way from them and they may not talk about it or express it in the same way as the fairer sex.
#4 Both men and women will say/do things to be with you.
There is a cliche that men tell women lies to get into their pants or date them. Well, the same is true for women. These cliches may come around because it is more common with one of the sexes. All that aside, women say sweet things or over commit themselves to men when they really aren’t ready too. They will claim they want a commitment or are in love but then run the other way. It happens all of the time.
#5 Being insecure or needy isn’t solely linked to one of the genders.
Women are portrayed as being needy and insecure a lot. There are articles in women’s magazines telling them men are sick of hearing about their insecurities with their bodies. But wait! It’s not just the ladies who need reassurance. A lot of men are very hard on themselves too. They just may not talk about it. Many men are insecure and feel need for a woman. The only reason why a man or woman may complain about their significant other being this way is because they aren’t needy or insecure at that time. Life goes through different ups and downs. For instance, a man or woman who’s always felt fine with their appearance or personality may need a confidence boost when they get older or after certain operations, child-bearing etc.
#6 Men want to get married and have kids just as bad as the women-folk.
He’s just thinking about it inside and wants to be the first one to bring it up. If you bring it up before he does, that could ruin his fun. I’m not speaking for all men or situations, but many. They aren’t in as much as a hurry as women, but even those who deny it, many times deep down want a wife and kids!
Well there we have it. Some misconceptions about the sexes. Sure, there are cliches for a reason, but from the research I’ve done, as well as people I’ve talked to these are all true.
