Because men want sex and everyone knows that. No one knows what women want, not even women.

I don't think of it as a matter of understanding the opposite sex. I would more or less put it as understanding each individual. We are all different and we all have different needs - some just more inclind to be generalized to a gender.

I know I've heard some of my friends, who are girls, say they do not understand men. Yet also say that women are easy to understand.

Behind every great man is a woman, behind her is his wife.

I don't mind women. Except the ones who use the cell phone while driving.

In my opinion, Women try just as hard as us guys when it comes to understanding the opposite sex.
However, I have no tolerence for women who ,think that men are as deep as their glass of beer, I think this is not true, in truth men hide just as much if not in some cases more than women, that is not to say that men are deep-thinking philosophy-machines all the time.

In sumise, Men can understand women just fine but only if a reciprical effort is made, "The Path to Love lies within Understanding, Can you Dig it?"

So fret not all those guys who think that your woman does'nt appreciate you, even they can be as shallow as the next drop of rain.

Love Razael

If women didn't want sex there would be no such thing as playgirl.

Yes, one of my teachers believes this and it is a very upsetting thing to deal with.


Different women need to be understood differently. stick with the ones you can figure out. If my father has taught me anything its how to read girls and act accordingly.

Most people who buy Playgirl are gay men.

Oh, those ones are fun. Especially when you start speaking outside their monosyllabic vocabulary.

As far as women understanding men and men understanding women, such a thing really isn't possible. One can never truly understand another fellow human being, hell, half the time we can't even understand ourselves.

narrowing it down to a catagory in which one has approx. a 50% chance of being is ridiculous. there are many people whose "gender identity" does not fit within these two, distinct catagories. Gender identity catagories are all just socially created and imposed.

i dont understand anyone...No one can be understood, most never understand themselves.

Seriously. I think women try to hard to understand men and try these little tactics to 'understand their man!' and men end up getting confused. O_o; Women are nuts. ^_^- -proud to be one-

girls are just as clueless (if not more clueless at times) about men as women are to men.

Generally the main reason they start having a difficult time understanding eachother though is because one or both of the partners or individuals is playing games (purposely not letting the other person figure them out).

Generally when both people are honest with eachother though they will be able to understand eachother just fine.

But heck, mind games can be fun. Also alot of times people like the thrill of the chase. And playing mind games with that individual is kind of forcing them to chase you around.

I quote a semi-famous film:

Girl: "How do you do it? How do you [portray] women?"
Man: "I think of a man, then take away logic and reason."

I've never heard a better quote.

I know I mean they won't shut up about their rights and how they;re capable of doing things and we let them do thing and then they b***h about how they do all thework and we're lazy and can't be supportive we help and then they do the women's rights crap again and they can do things too and it goes in that pattern forever unless you decide to stop caring which leads to Hell and if you can get through that the pattern stars all over again........ Also Bleys no one understands you fully and many don't want to since men don't care and you probably scare women like I somehow annoy them.

I was going to walk home one time after the cab dropped us off at my friend's house, but she and her roommate (guy) gave me cab fare home.

Screw being a gentleman :D

Men don't understand women because they never know when they're about to PMS.

Women don't understand men because they're not always clear about everything.

Every person I've ever met who buys Playgirl are men.

As for me...I've never had this "omg I don't understand women!" anymore than "omg I don't understand those guys!" problem. Men and women are equally unsensial to me.

What I don't understand is the labels and stereotypes our society bases gender roles off of...kinda like this thread.

because the emotional part of the male brain is less complex than that of the female brain..meaning female emotions are more complex than the primitive brain of most men can handle. :p

I can't stand all of this!!!!! -========- (Unleashes: Force of Demios on thread)

What most people tend to forget is that the human psyche is flawed when put to the closed spectrum, all this nonsense about Men's brains being smaller and women's I.Q being the same size as their bank balance is the kind of sexist drivel that caused me to blow-up a rather sizeable part of this trhead.

Face it, Human's are a flawed species who spend too much time thinking about what their friends or significant others are thinking that I tend to wonder how humans get anything done!

I'm sooo glad Im a Video Game Character!

Men undersantd women, women don't understand men... well just some.. for an example (cute one):

- A girl arrives next to the man and ask: 'Do you notice anything different in me? *looks at her shoes*'
- Men: 'Ah... no?'
- Girl: Are u sure?
- Men: Yeah u're normal!
- Girl: :mad2:

Conclusion: The man should said that she has a new shoes and cute ones...
Resumée: Why woman ask if they're different? They know that man never look at them?

I can understand women fine, I sit and listen to what they say, consider it all carefully, and in my head I hear what they're really saying.

"Blah blah blah, I want more shoes, pretty ones too, buy me them?"

I wear big Harley Davidson boots. Most people I know wear boots as well, including women. We all notice each others' boots because it is a point of mutual interest. Herein lies the key: mutual interest. Do you have it? If so you will click, you will get along and be on a great headstart to getting to know one annother very well. If not, then you have some tough times ahead of you and chances are that you may never understand one annother.

Someone mentioned individualism trancending gender, and I believe this is true to a certain extent. In most cases it really is all about the one person, since everyone is different in ther own particular ways, however there is merit in the cats and dogs theory. When a dog is happy and/or energetic it wags it's tail, when a cat is irritated and/or too relaxed to do anything it wags it's tail, ergo the two use the exact same signals but interpret them completely differently. When the cat wants to be left alone the dog runs over and thinks it's time to play, and when the dog is feeling playful the cat backs away thinking it's "me time" for the dog. That said, the same goes for men and women on a basic level. We all use the same basic signals, however they are interpreted differently, thus causing much confusion.

Example A:
Girl: Check out my new shoes, aren't they cool?
Boy: They look similar to your previous ones. They're shoes. Do they feel more comfortable? Are you going for a walk? How much did they cost?

Example B:
Boy: Check out my new tools, aren't they cool?
Girl: You have tools already. Do these ones do a better job? Are you going to make me something with them? How much did they cost?

In both cases the boy and girl expressed a need to show off their new things, however it is assumed that neither one grasped the essence of the interaction (the desire to share happiness) since neither one was truly interested in the items being displayed. The resulting misinterpreted signals have halted progress towards getting to know each other better. Thankfully, if you peer closer at the included spoiler text you can see the language that both genders speak fluently which enables them to move forward by instead argueing with one annother until they get the point through their thick skulls, however I digress.

There is no substitute for mutual interest when coming to know and understand annother individual, in terms of ease at least, but there are three more tools that can make the going much smoother for men and women everywhere and they are: personal interest, sincerity, and patience. Be it in terms of friendship or romance alike you must at least have the honest desire to get to know them in the first place and not expect it to just happen overnight.

I realise that I've gone way down into this and perhaps detailed what I believe after all this time on earth, and even that my arguments way heavily upon the relationship aspect of human interaction. As well, I've gone from claiming that generalisation is faulty, to then generalising, and then crawling back out of it. However, I still hold these things to be true, to me. You all have some very interesting insights. I've been trying to put my finger on this one, myself, for many many years.

EDIT: I'd just like to add that, imo, the entire concept that "Men are like this and women are like that and that's the way it is." is in fact the root of sexism and gender typecasting throughout history (use your own examples). In as much, though it may be great fun to poke at this topic, in our present day and age of presumed equality is it not then almost hypocritical to even conceive figuring it out?
