What Men Really Want But Will Never Actually Admit Out Loud

A lot of the time people like to assume they know exactly what men want and care about. It is not uncommon to hear a group of women saying, 'Oh, men only want this.' Obviously, though, there are plenty of things that women don't actually understand about men, just as it goes vice versa. There is no simpler gender, all humans are complex and capable of having deeper wishes and dreams. And that 'one thing' that people often say men only care about... well women care about it a whole lot too. And that's the tea.

On Reddit, men are sharing the things they actually want, but don't often get to say out loud, and it's surprisingly wholesome.

People Show The Things They Can't Get Rid Of From Their Exes On TikTok

Getting over a relationship is extremely difficult. Hey, sometimes I even struggle to get over a very brief hookup or a singular date that probably didn't even go that well in the first place.  The point is some people get easily attached to others, and then it makes it a bit harder to move on. There aren't really guidelines on how to behave after a breakup. You could get salty, or try to move on really quick, or just make sure you have a man in every one of your Instagram stories.

On TikTok, people are sharing the things they couldn't get rid of from their exes, and I understand, because some of these things are just too useful to throw out.

Man Forces His Girlfriend To Wear A Tampon To Bed, Comments Erupt With Differing Opinions

A woman's period is always a touchy subject. A lot of women are taught to feel ashamed of this totally natural part of life. We hide our tampons in our sleeves as we walk to the bathroom and wrap our pads at least 4 times with toilet paper to make sure nobody knows we are, well, women. Periods are definitely more normalized today than they used to be, but we still have a long way to go in terms of educating the other gender.

It can be really annoying to have a period and ruin your sheets and/or underwear. If you're sleeping in someone else's bed, is it only fair that you wear something to prevent the breakout bleeding? It's a dicey topic.

I'm getting sick of stained boxers and stained sheets so I asked her to put a tampon in before bed.

Guys Expose Times They Were The One To Friend-Zone A Woman

People often say that men and women can't be friends. A lot of the time it isn't accurate, there are plenty of male and female friends, but there is an ounce of truth to the idea that one person usually has to put their foot down and friend-zone the other person in order to go in the friendship direction. I think it is just a natural human instinct to consider something romantic with someone when you first meet them, even if it's just a single momentary thought that leads to nothing.

Men are revealing times they friend-zoned a woman on Reddit, as well as how the women responded, and it's definitely eye-opening.

People Admit Times They Were Completely Oblivious To Someone Flirting With Them

Flirting is clearly a skill. Some people excel at it, and some of us prefer to just make people fall in love with us slowly by having them get used to our awkwardness. It might sound ridiculous, but you'd be surprised at how often this tactic can work. Another skill though that we don't talk about enough is the ability to tell if someone is flirting with you. Sometimes our confidence is so iffy that we can't possibly imagine someone is actually coming onto us, and then it leads to a lot of missed opportunities.

The Worst Possible Ways People Have Been Rejected

We're always told to put ourselves out there and shoot our shot in many aspects of life, especially when it comes to finding love. Because you'll never know until you try... right? Confessing your feelings to a person you're into unfortunately doesn't always go as planned. The people of Reddit have spoken about their worst rejection experiences on a thread, and boy, these are tough to swallow. Whether these stories date all the way back to the middle school days or take place in the spectacularly awkward now, they're all pretty cringe. Regardless, I personally think you should still bellow your feelings from the rooftop because no regrets, that's why.

Being in a relationship can be very difficult sometimes. You want the best for their partner and you want to support them unconditionally, but they may not have the drive to go after what is good for them. At some point it becomes very difficult helping someone who won't try and help themselves.

On the 'Am I the A-Hole' page on Reddit, and guy is asking if he is the A-Hole because he is done giving his girlfriend free-bees because she won't try and find a job after years of being unemployed. Is this the best way to motivate her? Who knows? But how long can you support a fully functioning adult before you go insane or broke... or both.

Women Reveal How They Managed To Become Significantly More Attractive

Having a glow-up can take a lot of work. For some of us, we have to grow into our features.

Man Refuses To Attend His Brother's Wedding After He Finds Out It's With His Ex-Girlfriend

A lot of thought goes into planning a wedding, or just even deciding to marry someone. It's not usually a spur-of-the-moment decision. You have to send invitations, secure some best men and bridesmaids, and then make sure people sit with other people that they don't despise. Also, generally speaking, not everyone you invite will want to come, can you blame someone for refusing to attend?

What if it's your brother? What if he's not coming because you're marrying his ex? Is it justified then?

On the 'Am I the A-Hole' page on Reddit, somebody is asking if he is the A-hole for not wanting to attend his brothers wedding with his ex-girlfriend.

Red flags are the little things that we come across every day which can make or break the way we see somebody.

On TikTok people are sharing the weirdly specific red flags they try to avoid in men. And rest assured, these are definitely weird and specific.

Telltale Signs Your Guy Friend Wants To Date (Or Sleep With) You

When I'm into a dude, I can't hold back. I straight up let them know and see where it goes from there. Alas, not everyone is as direct as me. Some of us are shyer, while some of us are flirty without ever talking about our feelings outright because what if it totally destroys the friendship?! I totally get it. Putting yourself out there with a good friend is scary y'all. It's also hard to tell when a friend is coming onto you, or if they're just being friendly because that's what friends do. A Redditor recently launched a thread asking women how they could tell when your guy friend is just trying to be your buddy, or if he wants something more, whether it be to date you or sleep with you. Instead of starting Reddit threads like this, can we just be honest about what we want? Till then, scroll down for these eye-opening responses, and let us know if you agree.
