For the most part, the male species is great. But sometimes, you wake up and realize the honeymoon phase is over. The honeymoon phase is often referenced in relationships when one becomes settled in a relationship and stops the gogo eyes and pet names. When the honeymoon phase ends, it’s really confusing. It’s not that the relationship loses its original luster…you just become comfortable.
The same thing happens somewhere down the road when you’re married. When everything was once sunshine and puppydog tails, you’ll eventually start noticing new lovely ‘man habits’ that you once ignored before. Listed below are examples of such ‘man habits’ and other manly traits I will never understand. Enjoy!
Their ability to forget important dates and conversations.
What has always baffled me is that men can sit and appear ‘all there’ when you remind them that they need to drive Sarah to school on Wednesday, but when Wednesday morning comes…the somehow have no clue. Not only do they forget important things, they somehow seem to recover from their premature dementia and have the knowledge of Rain Man when it comes to sports.
They act shocked when us women don’t understand their manly interests/topics.
Not only do men expect us to be up to date with sports knowledge and what’s all the rage in the workout world, they make things even harder for us by using shortened names or code/slang. “Durant was on fire in the Boston game last week.” I’m sorry, but I know a lot of women who’d be very confused by that statement.
Most men are clueless when it comes to fashion. I’m still amazed with some of the ensembles they come up with. Us women have the added joy of redressing our children after daddy thought a red, sleeveless Cars pajama top, tan and plaid pants, and grey slippers go together.
They forget where everything is.
Have you seen the remote? Do you know where my blue shirt is? Can you call my phone for me? I can’t find it.
The funny thing about a ‘man cold’ is that a simple cough or cold mean they have the plague. A once manly man will end up laid out in bed complaining every 5 minutes (just in case you didn’t notice they were sick) and refuse any medicine.
Sure men have heart appetites and are built bigger than us dainty women, but do they need to eat everything? When I say everything, I mean everything. If you think that your Applebee’s take out will be there in the morning to bring to work, you better think twice. If you are thinking of going back for seconds, that food is probably gonna be gone before you hit your main course. Also while we are on the subject of hunger, I’ve never understood men’s fast food choices. 2 big macs, a large fry, a McFlurry, and a diet Coke? Who does that?
Goodness, I could go on and on but I should really stop now.
How about you guys? Can you think of anything that baffles you about our male counterparts? Any annoyances? I’d love to hear!
