The Species Called Men

Posted by CookieCrumbs Inc. at 7:00 PM

Sorry about the long absence girls. I have been finding my feet, I’m sure you’ll forgive me *puppy eyes* This post is as much to myself as to all the girls out there. I can be held guilty for not entirely practicing what I preach.

Men are from Mars, that’s the whole point. We don’t understand them much. 
We don’t understand why they don’t always say what they feel, why the leave the socks there, all smelly and dirty, in spite of a hundred odd pleas. 
We don’t know why they prefer not to cuddle during a Chelsea vs. Manchester United match nor do we get why they just shut down during a fight and refuse to talk. 
We don’t always understand what makes them tick.

While they try to figure out how our (girls) brain cogs work, let’s spend some time discussing some things that we do that are very, very pissing off for men.


I’m excluding fathers from the sample population for they remain mothers’ area of jurisdiction and also because daddy’s girls never have rules with their daddys :P


1) Nag, much?
Don’t. Just don’t. It’s difficult but control that tongue when you feel like telling him something over and over again just because he hasn’t done it yet.
Like for example, when he isn’t calling you enough, don’t nag about it and state the examples of all and sundry stating how much they call each other. I guarantee that whatever it is that you want from him will not get done. Unless you manage to irritate the crap out of him until he does it; he will resent you for this though.

Whining about everything from that girl you hate to the bad skin day you’re having to your chipped nail polish and undone presentation also is not going to have him looking forward to spending time with you.
Share, don’t suffocate.

2) Grow a sense of humor
Learn to see the funny side of things and don’t take yourself so seriously all the time. Learn to laugh at yourself even. Tell him that dirty joke you read yesterday and he’ll be proud of you. Trust me. Men LOVE women with a sense of humor. Why do you think Spiff and Red are so popular among the men?

3) Never compare. Ever.
“You know Sumitra’s guy? Dasarath? He sent her a bouquet of flowers from THE U.S! Can you believe it? Isn’t she lucky?” *looks pointedly*
I know you think you’re dropping him a hint but to him it sounds like you’re call him useless, inadequate and uncaring.  Don’t do it. Just don’t.

The better way to do it? Just go up to him and say it would mean a lot to you if he got you a rose. If you mean anything to him at all, he’s sure to get you a whole garden. How many times have we heard men throw their hands up in despair and ask ‘Why didn’t she just say so then?!” So just say it.

4) Show interest
My guy is a hardcore gaming addict. And all I knew about gaming was how to maneuver each car in NFS: Most Wanted and to blow up enemies in Blur. He listens to all the crap about blogging, something I love. So the least I can do is to read up on what God of War and World of Warcraft are and try to find out enough about gaming so that I can do more than just nod and look disinterested in the whole thing.

Same goes for work, friends, movies. Learn more about what he likes. Just like you want him to, with you.

5) Balance is the key
He goes shopping for kurtis and pumps with you na. Why don’t you watch that action flick he wanted to with him? It’s not about finding fight scenes boring, it’s about balancing out both your likes/dislikes.

When he goes out of his way to call you in the middle of an important project because he knows you’ll worry, ditch your friends once in a while and go out with him. Real friends would understand and he’ll only like you more for it, knowing that he’s a priority in your life.

The most important one:
All guys watch porn. All guys check out other girls. That’s how they are. That’s how men are made. Deal with it. It’s not their ‘fault’. So stop raising hell with them about it and give them their space and freedom. For isn’t it better that they tell you everything rather than doing stuff sneakily behind your back?
And if you can bring yourself to cater to reasonable fantasies, money back guarantee that they’ll eat out of your hand.

Like Chintan says, I know we like to analyze and over-analyze every single thing, over think each action and word and basically use our brains too much but when it comes to men, let’s just keep it simple, shall we?
If you need all this in no uncertain terms, go read this @ The Blunt Blog.

Note: The above are just examples I could think of based on my own life. Each scenario is different depending on what it is and who the guy is.

Agree with all of the five points. I've learnt them all in the three years with my husband, and these may sound silly, but they could really keep a marriage/relationship happy.
"daddy’s girls never have rules with their daddys" - that is so true!

*stands up on the bed and applauds*
*still applauding*
(m lying on my cosy bed after a hard day at office..thats why the extra dramatics)

blehehehehe
hmmm..i sooooo agree with all that you have said..
Every word is dripping with to the point accuracy and truth..
You know at times i wonder..we women actually complicate things for ourselves..men for that matter are a very simple species..understanding them is no rocket science..
Sigh..only if we remember this everytime we start acting all stupid and silly with them..

Every guy out there would probably show this post to his girl and say..
See see..just listen to PeeVee..
Khi khi khi..

Loved the post darling..brilliant it be..!

Cheers :)

After years of fighting and crying I have figured the golden rules :P Yes each guy has a separate set of "how to make him happy" and you learn by trial and error.. The points you mentioned will help keep the guy around till you find the "golden rules" else the guy will run away before that :D :D :D
What I feel is when we get into a relation we start treating the person as "mine" and start trying to impose ourselves on them.. rather see them as people, treat them like you would like to be treated and all is well.. Lets not suffocate the guy !

Sunitha on December 12, 2011 at 10:02 PM said...

nice post. Well. For some reason, I could always understand the guy's strain of thoughts easier than that of girls and these 5 points used to come naturally to me. And I almost need the same things back too..except the porn of course. (Like I can't stand any one nagging me or comparing me with anyone else and Sumithra's guy Dasarath ( something from Ramayana?) he he he

@ sumitra, thank you:) Maybe married people will have a better insight into how to live with them:)

@ meoww, awww, thanks love:D I know, right?:)
I'm off FB for a while :|

@ maithili, exactly:) we get hurt and then later realise what we do wrongg. So I thought why let the girls who are just getting into relationships suffer:)

@ kalpak, high praise, indeed, considering it's you:) Or are you just pulling my leg:P

@ Sunitha, well, some of us are lucky that way I suppose, we get through life without any blonde moments:)
Yes:P I just put the first name I could think of:P

Waah Waah Waah! Peevee!!!! Seriously achcha laga yeh mujhe!! :D :D We women tend to complicate things always...and I am so happy that for once, we have here something for for men here.... :D :D Hats Off!!!! :D :D

You are certainly making sense. They are Men! Act according to them and they like you more than anyone else.

Spaceman Spiff on December 13, 2011 at 10:46 AM said...

Err. Me? Popular among men? Umm.. Alrighty! :/ *scratching head in confusion*

But I don't think that's only because of the sense of humour. That's mainly because I behave more like a guy than a girl, so guys feel I'm one of them, be it my guy friends or my guy. Will you ever find a girl who actually encourages her guy to drink? :P But only so that he doesn't feel left out, ok!

And just like we have to accept that all men watch porn and check out other girls, they too have to accept that most girl nag. It's in our blood. The only difference is some women do it ALL.THE.TIME. And some, like me, don't bother even if he doesn't call for two days. And that'll lead to a round of "If I don't call for two days, you also won't call kya??!!"

Yup, guys definitely are a bit weird. :P

Yes, we tend to shut up during a fight.

I agree with all your points... But even after knowing all these, it is just so hard to follow these, being the species we are..;)
