# How much men And women know each other!

1. Jul 24, 2005

### Lisa!

Sometimes I can't understand men at all and I think that's because of my lack of information about men's characteristic in general! But I notice that men even have more trouble understanding women!

Now I want to ask men how much they know women in general and vice versa!
For example what's more important for them in a friendship or relationship?
What do men/women look for in a partner?
How can you win their hearts?

(If you can't understand what I mean that's your problem! :rofl: Any dirty humorou wouldn't welcome! )

PS:I started this thread mostly because of men! I noticed that most of men around here will be a loser if they ever want to impress a woman!

The ideal woman

Honest, but can be a at times

Can cook as good or better than me.

Hates buying clothes, but is well dressed.

Can talk intelligently, but can talk silly

Can be quite

Can be romantic

Must love animals

Must like the country side

How did score Isla?

Must like quiet nights in

1. Women like to chat over a cafe latte and moan about the lack of men in their lives.
2. Umm, I guess 1. covers the essentials

I beg to differ! I am the man all my female friends come to for advice about their relationships, they are proof that women dont understand what men are thinking! (mind you one or two of them are so stupid i dont know how they remember to breath!!!!)

Correction on 2. -

Women like to chat over a cafe latte and moan about the men in their lives. 1 + 2 covers the essentials.

I hope everyone realizes that I am being facetious.

Some of men know!
Maybe taht's the reason! How can you have a good impression on awoman when you don't know what she likes!

What women want? I reckon its a sensitive guy witha good sense of humour but most importantly someone that can look after her.

### Lisa!

arildno And Astronuc, everything has its own price!

And everyone, please stop discussing about who understand the other one better.It won't help at all. Some men understand women even better than other women and vice versa!

To be honest, misunderstanding goes both ways.

In my relationships, I simply talk and listen. I ask questions. I don't guess what another person, male or female, is thinking - I ask.

I never played games.

Net result - I've been married 23+ years to same woman. I still ask questions and avoid assumptions. Presumably, my wife got what she wanted.

Actually, she got more than she bargained for.

Nope. It is the truth. Whether it is painful truth to you or not, it matters to me not. I am used to it.

19. Jul 24, 2005

### Lisa!

Used to what? I don't think there is any woman like that. And I think if a woman would be like that, she'd be like !

### darkar

Wow, this is a good piece of advice!

### Lisa!

Partly kidding, wolram you were joking about the ideal woman because you thought there were no such a woman ! Although all of them sound like paradoxes and it seems that no on can have these characteristic at the same time!But I think some women are like that. The only problem is that you may not be their kind of man!

I'm always honest because I hate lying. Of course I could be a good liar, If I wanted. :grumpy: But I ca tell the truth in a way that everyone would accept that I'm right and I can get them to do what I like most of time!

I usually don't cook because I think it's a waste of time! But I'm a good cook.

I hate shopping especially shoes, but everyone says I'm well dressed.Ah I have problem how to reject their requests when they ask me to go shopping with them! :grumpy:

That's me.

You mean quiet?

If I could stop laughing!

They're better than most of humans!

If it would be beautiful and full of flowers and trees!

I didn't get it!

half the time women don't know what women want, and that's a fact. Or if they do, they change thier minds frequently. I've gotten the respose of "you should know" to a question of what they mean or what they are thinking- not from the woman I'm with now, mind you- but I've heard that frequently from women, which is crap because no one is that attuned to someone else, and if they are, they need some time apart.

simple:
someone who will challenge me but also accept me for who i am if i don't go for it. also a girl who is the equivalent of a 6' 215-220lbs muscley handsome devil who can hold a conversation on many different subjects.

what women want:
-- resources & committment of resources
-- earning potential

what men want:
-- "reproductive viability" aka youthful looks, sex, etc

^ (not what i say, it's the consensus among relationship scholars)

This is the main problem. I have no duty of having to impress any woman. You and all females are like standing in the highest tower of a castle, waiting a handsome man to come and rescue you. I am not going to be as ridiculous as it. On the contrary my tower is as high as all of yours. I am worth of such tower too, and I am worth of having a woman rescuing me from there. Why the hell do you wait for someone and do not run behind him when he likes you?. All women do that. I claim for iguality of sexes, so we must be equal also in this.

And I don't know whom are you referring when you mentioned the word "loser". As far as I am concerned, it would be very stupid if you dare to judge me about what would happen in that situation, because you scarcely know me.

I have noticed that most men want consistency, they are creatures of habit.
Most men don't like to be "mothered", but like the feeling of being cared for.
