“I hated this when I was a teenager. People automatically assume the worst about me when I was around a girl in any capacity because they “know what teenage boys are after.” I even have similar assumptions being made about me now as a guy in my mid-20s.

No, you don’t. You don’t know me, and you should stop projecting your crappy teenage behavior onto me. Every young person with a Y chromosome is not some soulless monster. Don’t make these assumptions about me and just accept the fact that when you were younger you were just a crappy person.”

Those “Locker Room” Talks

“Walk around at night without a care in the world, unconcerned with our safety.” Said one. 

“Yeah, I find when I’m walking around downtown I’m low-key assessing everyone I walk past to see if they’re a threat or not. Might be slightly paranoid lol but you always see shady people like that.” Another added. 

Talking About Irrelevant Stuff

“Talk about stuff other than what we are doing at the moment. When I play golf with boys, my wife wants to know all the latest news about their kids. We guys just talk about how we messed up the last hole and where the trouble is on the next hole. And then laugh at each other for missing a 3 ft put.”

Amazingly, this reality doesn’t enter their psyche. It’s fascinating.”

“That any man looking in your direction at the gym is a creep that wants to harass you and make you uncomfortable. I’m sure there are creepy guys at the gym, hell there are creepy women at the gym, but the vast majority of folks are simply wanting to work out in peace.

Funny enough, I find motivation in the strength/form of others, so I find myself admiring how much work other people do to achieve what they have, that’s why I like to pay attention to those around me. I’ve learned to fix my form on so many workouts just from paying attention to how experienced gym-goers do things.”

We Judge On The Basis Of Looks Only

“Men judge on looks only – personally I am multi-sensory. Yep, looks are important but more than that it matters what women think as well and whether they actually think freely as well as their actions match their thoughts i.e. I judge the entire person.”

We Lose Stuff Every Now And Then

“Only go after the most shallow definition of “hot girls”

Most men actively avoid the “Instagram baddie” type because we know the women who fit that stereotype of conventional attractiveness are usually… lacking everywhere else because they can essentially coast through life on looks.

Give me a cute 7 with a good personality and smile over a boring 10 any day and yes I’ve been with boring 10s, this isn’t just projection.”

We Keep Looking For Fights
