They say that men are from Mars and women are from Venus, and sometimes, that seems true! Do you find yourself wondering what’s going on inside your man’s head? Or trying to decipher the thought patterns of the new guy you’ve been dating? Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a mind-reader! We’ve gathered ten interesting insights from real men about what goes on inside their brains:
“We only really think about one thing at a time” – Mark, 38
Women love to ask, “what are you thinking about”, when we’re eating dinner or watching a movie. The fact is, if I’m eating dinner, I’m thinking about dinner, or if I’m watching a movie, I’m thinking about the movie! We can think about deep things too, but it’s normally only one thing at a time.
“We don’t care that much about clothes and make-up” – Aaron, 35
Honestly, if a girl wants to get all nice and dressed up then I’m not complaining, but I don’t want her to feel like she has to do it just for me. Some girls wear lots of make-up and expensive clothes because they like it, but I also think a girl looks just as beautiful at home in her pajamas.
“We actually like to cuddle” – Tray, 40
I love to cuddle and sometimes I even want to be the little spoon! Cuddling is fun because it can lead to sex, but it’s also just fun on its own too, especially if it’s a cold night or we’re watching a movie. Everyone likes to be cuddled, and it doesn’t stop just because you grow up and become a man.
“We all really want to drink those fruity cocktails” – Al, 50
It’s so tough being a guy and being expected to always drink beer and whisky. Sometimes all I want is a delicious fruity cocktail! I also won’t say no to a nice glass of wine, especially with a good meal. I think we’re past the days when drinks had anything to do with gender—girls can love craft beer so why can’t I enjoy a cosmopolitan?
“Sometimes we just need to be alone—it doesn’t mean we don’t like you!” – Trevor, 41
A lot of guys like to recharge their batteries alone. So if we say that we need time to ourselves, or don’t feel like going out tonight, don’t take it to mean that we don’t like you. Honestly, it just means that we need some ‘me’ time. Pizza and a crappy movie is sometimes all I need to be back on track the next day.
