Men. We may never understand the way they think. With their sneaker obsessions, secret double lives as online gamers, and–of course—their football gods, they are basically a different species. But what if you had the chance to look into the mind of a man? Some of the things they think about women might surprise you. We asked a bunch of guys the questions you always wanted to know the answers to and here is what they had to say:
What is one part of a woman's beauty routine that you think is ridiculous, weird or dumb?
“The amount of time and money spent on hair maintenance.” – Andy, 26
“Fake eyelashes” – Dan, 29
"Putting foundation on. It clogs pores and changes the color of her skin. I think more natural is better, blush is enough I think.” -Jason, 27
"Dumb that they get their nails done, I never notice" - Joe, 29
"I spend way too much time gyming, tanning, plucking and shaving areas besides my face to judge without being a hypocrite. I do, however, think it’s ridiculous when we're late getting somewhere because she couldn't finish doing it on time. Plan accordingly please." - Nate, 28
"I think painting your nails is silly. I have never seen a woman in a hot black dress and all done up and gone, 'damn, she would be so pretty if she had her nails done.' Just that they don’t look jacked up but even then, it is like number 12,233,453 on our list of 12,233,455 to check about a girl." – Alex
“Saying ‘I look like crap.’ while getting ready” – Will, 22
What is one shady thing you have done to get a girl in bed?
“Told her I was gay.” – Andy, 29
"Hard to say ‘cause I don’t think I did anything shady to sleep with them, but sleeping with or dating multiple girls at the same time is pretty shady, and I've done that." Joe, 29
"I don't think I've ever done anything that I consider shady just to sleep with a girl. That's just not my thing." Nate, 28
"I can't say I remember a particular time I was shady, but there were some times where I would see more than one girl I was interested in/talking /texting to… out at the same place. I would just flirt and hang out and kind of play their jealousy against each other. Ultimately resulting in me being with both at different times. Is that bad?" Chris, 29
"I overheard a girl that was having problems with her man or ex or whatever and what she was hating on him about. Then later when she was more drunk I talked about how I was great about those things (though not in so few of words)." – Josh, 28
Would it bother you if your significant other made more money than you? If so, why?
“Absolutely not, I'd like to be a stay at home dad.” -Andy, 26
“No. What I love the most may not pay the most in the world and what she loves may pay more. It doesn't matter to me.” – Nolon, 26
"Not necessarily, buuuut women in America are extremely vain and superficial....good chance they will dump my ass and work their way up the ladder. Cynical? Yes... True? Absolutely." -Chris, 29
“No, it would motivate me to make more money”- Damon, 31
"Not at all. I grew up in a two income household that both contributed to. I know I will be doing well, and if my wife makes more that's just a better life for my kids and my wife and I. Powerful couple." – Ryan
