16 Things Men Want (But Are Too Shy To Tell Women)

There are some common misconceptions between gals and guys that lead men to feel frustrated and misunderstood. A recent online survey asked, “As a guy, what do you wish girls knew?” Here are the top 16 responses.

I’m ok with not knowing much about my friends

“​​I don’t know what they’ll do in the future, I don’t know that much about their romantic life. They don’t know anything about me. Sometimes guys spend time around each other and don’t get too mixed up in the past or the future. This concept blows my sister’s mind.”

“And I don’t want to know. It’s so intrusive to me, and honestly, why would I care who has how many kids now or how their last date with whatserface was?”

We appreciate compliments too

“That sometimes a hug or nice compliment can mean a lot. We can ride that wave for quite a while.”

“I’m in the same boat. I’ve received maybe three compliments in my life, and one of them wasn’t even from the girl directly. My friend told me, ‘Some girl in my class thinks you’re cute.’ I don’t even know the girl, he could’ve just made it up. I still ride that high.”

No, we don’t want you to play hard to get

“I’m not going to chase anyone. If she says no, I’m backing all the way up.”

“I recently found out that someone I asked out a few months ago was really into me, but when I asked them out, they plain rejected me. Then they went crying to one of our mutual friends two weeks later that I had backed off and wasn’t talking with them more than cordially. They wanted me to pursue them, but I have no time for that.”

When I say “I don’t mind,” I really mean it

“Or sometimes, ‘I don’t care,’ means I care a little bit, but not enough to do anything about it, so ‘meh.’”

“People also want input, and someone being ‘I don’t mind’ all the time can be tiring, and the other person can feel responsible, even if you don’t really mind. There’s a good middle ground to have here.”

Spending time with my friends doesn’t mean I’m avoiding you

“I really like to hang out with my friends because I love them. Not because I don’t want to spend time with you.”

“I really like to hang out with just me, by myself. Not because I don’t want to spend time with my wife.”

Men like romantic gestures

“A girl came onto ME at a library once and asked ME out to dinner. She slipped her number on a bookmark and put it in one of the books that I was checking out. It’s still the most memorable thing a woman has ever done when communicating with me.”

“I was working one day, and my girlfriend showed up and wanted to go to lunch. Not uncommon, it’s a good time to be together as I was going on break, and she had the day off. She came across a florist on the way and bought ME flowers. She said she liked them and liked me more so they should go together. Not many women would think to get flowers for a guy, but her sentiment and totally being out of the blue, I’ll always remember.”

We need hugs too

“A girl in my class hugged me on my last day at school before moving, and I still go back to that from time to time.”

“I got my first boyfriend in high school by walking up and saying, ‘You’re really cute. Can I have a hug?’”

Its ok to make the first move

“Guys can be shy too. Come talk to me instead of staring at me.”

“This! If I had not asked my boyfriend out, he admitted to me that his shyness would have completely deterred him from asking me. The rewards in life are worth the risk; your ego can stand being the one to ask. As much as I had wanted to finally be the one asked out, it worked out so much better the way it did.”

Silence can be a good thing

“Just because I’m not talking, it doesn’t mean I’m not enjoying my time with you.”

“I knew I was going to marry my now wife when I realized that the ‘awkward’ silences in our relationship weren’t awkward. We can be completely tuned into each other without talking. Nothing is more reassuring in our relationship that when we’re just quietly hanging out, and she just leans against me.”

Men need just as much support as you do

“Guys are usually worse off than they are expressing. I will usually say I’m okay, even if I’m not, and usually deal with those issues on my own, even though having some help would probably be better. When I express I am not doing well, I am usually in a pretty dark place.”

We’re not always hitting on you

“No, I’m not hitting on you. I’m asking if you’re ok because you fell down the stairs…”

“So accurate. One time a woman dropped her keys in a parking lot. I chased her down with her keys. ’Miss? Excuse me, miss?’ Turns around. ‘I have a boyfriend.’ ‘Yeah, and I’m married, but you dropped your keys.’”

We aren’t great with hints

“Subtle hints don’t work. STRONG hints don’t work, either. Just say it.”

“My wife said she wanted to go to the Art Institute for her birthday. So we went to the Art Institute. Crazy how communicating gets you what you want…”

Respecting our wishes is just as important as us respecting yours

“We are people too. We have the same feelings, fears, and dreams as you do. Our way of expressing ourselves may be different than yours, but we still experience the same range of feelings that you do. Please don’t treat us as something less than yourself. We feel just as much as you do, and we express it differently.”

We don’t all want to be the big spoon

“I haven’t really dated much, but I have a lot of close guy friends. As a small lady, I once told them that I would probably like being the big spoon more than the little spoon. My friends (who are all pretty tall) voiced their dreams of one day being the little spoon. We decided that if the bigger person wants to be the little spoon, it should be henceforth known as ‘The Backpack.’”

“As a very large man, being the little spoon is my favorite.”

Sometimes I just want to rest on my days off

“I’ve dated a lot of women who heard I had two days off work and took it as an invitation to make plans for us. Like yeah, I appreciate that you put all this effort into planning our time together, but sometimes I’m just burned out and need like two days of just sitting at home in my underwear watching tv.”

Manspreading has a practical purpose

“That when I sit with my legs spread, it’s because it’s comfortable, not because I’m trying to dominate an area or show off or anything like that. It’s simply because my danglers are more comfortable when they’re not being squeezed.”

“Also, body heat. Stuff gets uncomfortable and hot down there.”
