The differences between guys are girls are not hard to spot. Girls have soft faces, painted nails, and more often than not, an affinity for browsing the aisles of Target to de-stress.
Meanwhile, most guys are scratching their beards and still think of “Target” as something to fire at.
Okay, that was a little unfair. I’m sure there are lots of guys out there putting in their time at that beloved retailer.
Maybe we’ve agreed to meet in the middle and shop together, but we still don’t understand each other. So I decided to survey some guys for all the “Confused Girls Who Want Answers” out there. You can categorize them in the general/dating/male grooming category.
How much time does it take you to groom facial hair? Is it uncomfortable having a scratchy face?
Most guys take about 15 minutes to shave and they experience facial discomfort (scratchy beards). Not to mention the dreaded “Neck Beard,” which—according to one miserable soul—feels like death.
What intimidates you the most about girls?
We confuse guys:
“Everything. Girls are so hard to understand (shocker, right?). So many emotions, and you never know what they are thinking. A girl could be upset because you forgot that you talked about the friend she mentioned once is having a going away party she has to go to, you didn’t compliment her on the new dress she picked she to wear for the date, or because there’s no ice cream left in the fridge. Who knows?”
What we don’t say:
“Their eyes. And denial. But mostly their eyes.”
We travel in packs:
“If they’re cute and in a group, that’s the most intimidating. It’s been that way my whole life. If they’re in a group but not cute or cute but not in a group, I’m fine!”
Seriously though, do lunch dates mean the friend zone? What about coffee dates?
Girls, don’t be alarmed if a guy you like asks you on what you think is a “friend zone” date. It’s all part of the process!
Is there an incredible girl out there that you are afraid to ask out because you aren’t sure if she’s into you? (Feel free to reflect here) It’s actually a dare not a question. Dare: Ask her out. In person. You can do this!
Lots of guys said they would go for it anyway! And we believe in this guy:
“Yes!!! I think she wouldn’t bat a second look at me. More than likely when I want to ask someone out, I find out they are already in a relationship or they have someone in their sights already. I want to ask her out, but…it’s so scary.”
What is one thing you would want your future daughter to know about guys?
Guys need some time to mature:
“We don’t know anything until we are 18!”
Watch out for this guy’s future daughter (we love this guy):
“If they do not treat her like the greatest human on the planet, they don’t even deserve for my daughter to look in their direction.”
Wait for a good one:
“There are good guys out there and bad guys out there. Most of them are bad.”
Dating as a millennial is hard. Guys and girls, we gotta stick together! Thank you so much to all the guys who participated! Look out for “Confused Guys Who Want Answers.”
