16 Glimpses into a Man’s World Women Would Find Eye-Opening

Some parts of a man’s experience are a mystery to most women. Someone recently asked, “What aspect of everyday life as a man do you think would most surprise women if they experienced it first-hand?”. Here’s how 16 people answered.

How differently a group of men will behave when women aren’t present

That one is almost impossible to prove, too, because they can never see it in person.”

“I am one of the only women in my group of friends, and since I have been with my partner longer than I know them and they are good friends with my partner as well, they kinda see me more as a buddy than a woman. I’ve heard and witnessed some things I would like to forget.”

Going months without hearing a single compliment

Some girl on a corner complimented my suit once. I never forgot that. I felt like a rock star.”

“Seriously, and the ones we get, we remember forever. I recently got a different haircut I wasn’t sure I liked. And I walked into a restaurant I regularly visit, and the waitress mentioned she really liked my new haircut. I was on cloud nine for a few hours.”

How lonely the male journey can feel

It isn’t like I don’t have friends that I know would be there for me if I needed them. But the day-to-day? When I get home from work after a rough day? When nothing is wrong per se, but I just don’t feel good? Sheer loneliness.”

“Half the time when I try to talk about what’s bothering me, I’m told I’m complaining. The other half the time, I’m being ignored.”

People freaking out when you try to help someone else’s child

I take my kids to the park, and as they’re playing, I see a child fall off the swing. I was maybe 10 feet away and walked over to check on him and help him up. Mom came running over, screaming for me to get away from her kid… She seemed to calm down when my kids came running over and wanted to see what all the fuss was about.”

The lack of awareness of men’s mental health

We never really know when it’s too much ’cause we are taught to ignore it. I remember one time I broke my phone, and when going to buy a new one, I took a wrong turn that added like five minutes to my trip. I was so infuriated at myself that I had a breakdown in my car and even had to call out of work.”

“Everyone wants to talk about their problems. Nobody cares about yours.”

Going days without getting a single text from anyone

“The last text message I got that didn’t start with me reaching out first was Christmas.”

“The only person who ever reaches out to me is my mom. And it’s definitely not every two to three days”

Always having to make the first move

A cute girl slipped me her number one time across the bar, and I was in absolute shock and not sure If it was a joke or if I was on one of those hidden camera game shows.”

“ I had a girl and her friend approach me while I was at work and told me I was pretty. I wasn’t sure if she was making fun of me until she was already gone. Literally had never had a woman I didn’t know (or even that I DID know, honestly) approach me like that in my 24 years before that.”

Intimidating people you don’t know

This is an interesting one I can relate with. I hate going in the same direction as a woman on foot because I don’t want her to feel creeped out. (Though this feeling is definitely less unpleasant than the hypervigilance many women experience in that same scenario … )”

“I know, right? People cringe and actually cower, and I’m thinking, what the heck? I was smiling, wasn’t I? Aren’t old guys with gray whiskers supposed to be non-threatening? Yet another sad fact of life.”

Getting turned down all the time

“Honestly, I haven’t had much experience, but at first, I was extremely confident with it now, I expect it. I’m more shocked if things go smoothly.”

“I remember being super surprised at the reaction from a few women I politely told I wasn’t interested in them that way. Like over the top, going to make you regret saying no, you don’t know what you’re missing…etc. Guys are used to pursuing and getting turned down. Women, not so much.”

The positive attention you get when out alone with your baby

When I’m out alone with my baby, everyone (especially women) will give me attention and talk to me. When I’m out with my wife or when my wife is alone with the baby, nobody even notices her.”

Old ladies at the grocery store love a dad with a baby can confirm, and also the beach. My wife took the two older girls in the water, and I stayed under the umbrella with the 3-month-old. Not too many small babies on the beach and everyone was relaxed and happy, so a few people came up and asked how old or tried to get a smile(from the baby). They left us alone when my wife came back, though.”

Always having pockets to put your stuff in

I think about this daily as I shove all the stuff I need for the day into different pockets to keep it organized. I am constantly surprised by how much I can fit and all the different places I can put things”

The overall lack of fashionable clothing options

Sometimes I see women dress up in these outlandish hats and accessories, and I think that could be fun. But there is no outlet for men per se. I don’t care enough to go out of my way to pursue it. But it looks like fun too.”

“ I wish men could dress like Billy Porter without being ridiculed.”

How uncomfortable it can be to sit with your knees together

“Male anatomy can get squeezed between the upper thighs, and that’s mildly to moderately painful. Most men really must sit with their knees at least a little apart.”

“Manspreading is sometimes a necessity.”

How strong the average man is

Never Being The Victim

“I’ve seen threads on Reddit with women who didn’t realize the strength difference until something happened.”

“To be fair, even men are surprised by the difference in strength. I have women friends that do work out quite a bit, and I am close to their level without any workout besides jogging. I was very surprised and kind of scared at that point.”

People only reaching out when they need something 

Arguing With Strangers on Facebook

I had this girl who I texted with and chatted to last semester as we are both in grad school and in a lot of the same classes, and at first, I thought she was hitting me up because she was interested, then around winter break, I got nothing from her, and I realized that 99% of her texting me was about an assignment, quiz, exam, or project.”

“The thing is, I don’t mind helping someone. I think it’s cool to be good to others. But I just don’t like being used. If this woman was actually a friend to me, a real friend. I’d have no problem going out there to help her clean her driveway.”

Acts of service being taken for granted

Take out the trash, feed the pets, fix the fence, sink, toilet, wall, aquarium, take the dogs to the vet, pick up the kids, do the laundry, get food for the family, and eventually, once the dishes are left for so long they harvest baby flies, do the dishes because no one else will. It’s demoralizing, it’s exhausting, and I feel unappreciated. I’m done.”

I feel this too. I don’t know if it is all men or all women, but in my life, I feel like I do SO MUCH for everyone else, and no one does hardly anything for me. I feel pretty used at times. It is totally an uneven workload. I support that it is no longer the 1960’s so women don’t have to do all the cooking, cleaning, and laundry. So I do my half of all the traditional household chores, if not more, but I still do ALL of the traditional male roles.”
