Communication between the sexes has always been a gray area, mainly because men often do and say things that women can’t understand. But that has to go both ways, right? There’s bound to be things sisters do that drive guys crazy—and not in a good way. So we called in Anslem Samuel, who pens a popular blog on life, love and relationships called NakedWithSocksOn.com, to help the ladies out. He polled a bunch of brothers to find out how women confuse them. Here are the (sometimes hilarious) results:
“I hate when women ask me about their weight and when I suggest solutions they act like I’m calling them fat or something.”—Richard, 28, single
Anslem says: Point blank: don’t ask questions if you can’t handle the answer. Most men know to fudge their response to such a setup question, but in the rare case that a man says yes, why should he be labeled “mean” for voicing his opinion? You asked! Besides, if this is your man, he’s going to love you and your lady lumps just fine.
