The battle of sexes has been raging on for thousands and thousands of years…it has stood the test of time and is showing no signs of slowing down. Men honestly believe they are faster, smarter, and stronger than women…which I can kind of agree with on the faster/stronger part but on the smarter….mmm probably not lol but anyways I thought a good topic for today’s blog would be things men ARE and ARE NOT good at…
Men are NOT Good at Expressing Themselves
Lawd, lawd, lawd…whoever came to this conclusion ain’t never lied! And any woman who has ever been in love knows this to be textbook truth. Personally I am as dramatic and expressive as they come (if you haven’t already guessed that) and it burns me to the core when I have no clue what my significant other is thinking. At any given moment there are 5 ideas, 4 to-do’s, 3 errands, 2 reminders, and a partridge in a pear tree flying through my mind…and from my understanding, men have the unique ability to sit back, relax, and think about nothing!! What?! Nah…someone better teach me that Jedi mind trick because I would love the opportunity to sit and think about nothing (I low key think that’s just a lie they tell us to get us to shut up and stop asking them how they feel). But in any case is it really their fault they don’t express themselves well? From the time they are small they are told not to cry, show weakness, or talk about their emotions (Unless it is anger -_-). So basically man up and shut up! In any case I have come to the tragic conclusion that pulling feelings out of the male species is like pulling a half priced 100% Remy bundle out of a hoodrat’s hands…Meanwhile, men continue to look at us like Kanye when they hear those four dreaded words “We have to talk.”
Men ARE Good at Pest Control
I have a phobia of ALL things creepy crawly! As a matter of fact, we as WOMEN have a phobia of all things creepy crawly. We jump on couches, scream, flail our arms, and act a complete fool when you even mention us and a cockroach in the same sentence! I hate insects so much I even went as far as jumping out of a moving golf cart (back when I was a leasing consultant) after a Kamikaze cicada threatened my life and flew full speed at my head…YES, I was driving it. Yes, there were prospective residents on the cart viewing an apartment. And NO I did not care about their well being…it’s a cold world and sometimes you must look out for numero uno first! But anyways the fact that I have a boyfriend puts him on official pest patrol, day and night! Matter fact if your man don’t kill bugs GET RID OF HIM…cause he has just let you know that it is every man for himself and you may not end up on the winning side!
Men ARE NOT Good At Facing Rejection
By age 15 most women have been hit on by a dude w/ low self esteem. The exchange of words goes something like this:
Jerk: Dang, baby…you looking good today. Where yo man at?
Woman: **rolls eyes and continues to walk while ignoring the ignorance***
Jerk: Forget you! You ugly anyway…
I’m ugly now? Hol’ up my boy…two and half seconds ago I was “…looking good today” but because I didn’t delude you in your feeble attempt to get my attention I’m unattractive now?! Wowwww! You mad and it is not my fault. Matter fact, you just made yourself look three times worse than when I ignored you. Smh. Oh well…
Men ARE Good At Making Us Laugh
One of the things I love about my man is his ability to always put a smile on my face. We can be in the middle of a serious conversation and he will quote one of our favorite movies and I will burst into laughter…There is nothing like a man who can make you happy. Then there are the times when you are angry with him and you are dead set on being mad…these are the times where we DON’T…WANT…TO…LAUGH. Like when you unknowingly go to sit on the toilet and he forgot to put the seat back down and you fall in -_- UGH! Then he tries to make a joke that you don’t want to laugh at because you just sat your bare behind in toilet water…but you know it was slick funny and you end up like…
WHY ARE THEY SO GOOD AT THAT?!
Men ARE NOT Good At Comforting Us
There are very few men who are good at giving comfort. Women are natural comforters…especially to our children. Baby get’s a boo boo…we kiss it. Bae get’s laid off…we encourage. That’s just who we are and what we do. Unfortunately, after all the women and some of the men were created God ran out of the “Comfort” ingredient…and now we’re faced with the awkward situations that happen after we have a moment and they sit there trying to figure out what to day/do like…
We understand that they don’t know what to do in these situations but at least they try though…right?
So there you have it…my list of things that men are and are not good at. Sorry I had to pick on y’all but the women’s list is coming soon…I promise. Let me know if y’all want a part 2!
