50 Universal Truths About Men

  1. I find point number 2 interesting. Whilst it is very common for men to do just anything for sex, It very much depends on the man and the situation. I think a man who truly likes a woman will often delay sex in the early days of dating a woman. Why? Nervousness, not wanting to stuff things up, really likes the idea of a future with a women. In my opinion this often puts a woman in the position of wanting to bring sex into the equation before the man does. Often causing women to lead too much with sex, and give the wrong impression of themselves.

    Something else to think about is this, men reach emotional intimacy with a woman through sex, women want the emotional intimacy before they have sex with a man. Makes you wonder where, do strike a balance?

  2. During after work drinks, few girl friends and I were talking about husbands and partners yesterday.I mean 'what actuallt men thinking'..We talked about most of the things on the list…So that means we wifes do understand the facts about men…:)

  3. While some of the points are true, the article is obviously written by a woman. There’s too much emotion, twisted logic, and double talk to have been written by a man. It’s a woman’s best guess as to what motivates a man thrown in with some obvious statements. Waste of time.

  4. I was reading this and was feeling down. Then I read the second post ‘what an absolute teat’ and it restored my faith in humanity. Thank you captain just, my hero

  5. I realized this article does not say much about men, but rather tells a woman how to behave around their partner.
    Some points have this pattern :at first the arguement, then the mistake the woman has made.
    Some other points are not universal at all (when it goes about preferences).
    Some are simply idiotic and do not see the realtionship on an adult level(e.g. #35 and #43).

    And I’ld like to point out #21….is this woman this point refers to a dog or a toddler?
    And there are some points, which – rude spoken- tell women just to get their mind sorted
    (e.g. #44).

    IF this was written by a man, then only to make his life easier and not in order to make a better relationship…in my opinion

      1. I know! How rude and aggressive people seems to be on the internet. I’m a guy and a lot of this seemed true to me, but definitely not all of it. You can never expect that from a list like this.

  6. You're insulting all of the wonderful, intelligent, loving, kind and generous men I know and making them look like shallow idiots.
    So up yours Bob Grant God forbid any misled man or woman should take on your awful advice.

  7. stupid. I'm getting old and I can see by these comments, men have not learned a damned thing. If I had it do do over again knowing what I know now, screw men, I would live alone and FREE, without a man running my life and breaking my heart…..

  8. ”You may know fashion, but I wish you’d dress to please me, not other women.”

    Or maybe I dress to please myself? As an individual and equally valuable human being, I deserve to make myself happy as well.

    ”Cigarettes make any woman look cheap and easy.”

    Everyone has their vices. It is insane that you would attribute something as shallow as smoking cigarettes to being easy. (And there is nothing wrong with being easy, considering men are allowed to sleep around as much as they please without anyone deciding their value is directly related to their sexual history).

    ”I really don’t want to hear about any of your ex-boyfriends, regardless of the point.”

    I think an extremely important part of a relationship is to always review the past. We carry it with us every single day. If I was in an abusive relationship, hurt before, or had a difficult time with past relationships they will effect me today. I need a partner who is confident enough with himself to see it not as a competition, but instead an adult understanding of one another on a complex level.

    ”I want every man to envy me when we arrive as a couple. Please don’t let yourself go.”

    I think this is cruel. No one wants to see themselves deteriorate. It doesn’t make anyone feel good. Do not take someone else’s ageing issues and make it about yourself. How insensitive. Women, mostly, are very self conscious. Why would you make her beauty about you? Why does her entire existence revolve around making you look good?

    These were just a few I had issues with. I don’t like any of the comments that you have made. I find them all extremely sexist and self serving. Borderline disgusting. I agree with many of the comments made by others. I don’t think you have ever had a deeply successful and loving relationship before. It should be a partnership but it seems as if your patriarchal viewpoint is abusive and manipulative. I am a professional young woman and I think you are too deeply entrenched in a masculine box to even understand vulnerability and equality. Woman are constantly attacked on a daily bases – while men’s greatest fear is not being respected. I fear being harassed, raped, or sexually assaulted. The one place I should feel adequate, respected, and loved unconditionally is in my relationship. Your “universal” truths are unhealthy.

    1. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. I believe some of your comments seem to focus on a sense of how things should be.
      That a relationship is about equals.
      A relationship is about compliments. To pretend that a woman who smokes is simply a vice that has no effect on how most men would view that woman is…sorry…but naive.

      If you think it doesn’t matter whether a woman takes care of herself – then I’m not sure you know much about men.
      I would say something similar to men.
      For a man, don’t expect her to be your mommy. When there is some problem that you can solve, solve it.
      Sure it’s ok to share your pain, but don’t ever make excuses for your lack of accomplishing a goal that was within your power to accomplish.

      See, that’s not _____________ (pick whichever name you want to call it). It’s based on most women wanting to feel secure in a relationship.

      Perhaps that doesn’t apply to you.

      As a professional young woman, is there any chance that maybe you don’t understand men as well as you believe you do?
