Guys have plenty of misconceptions about girls. For instance, here are things men think girls really care about when in reality, they don’t.
These facts will surprise many guys. So, before you conclude she is not the right girl for you, make sure you can see things from her point of view.
1. Guys Are Often Concerned That She Is Not Close To His Friends
Your girl might not be too concerned about being too close to your friends. As a guy, this might throw you into a panic.
You might even conclude that she does not care about your life.
Many men expect that the girlfriend will develop a powerful bond with their friends over stuff like sports, video games, and alcohol. However, that doesn’t typically happen.
What most guys fail to realize is that girls don’t have the same expectations. For instance, girls don’t typically expect their men to love shopping as their friends do.
In other words, she does not care about bonding with your friends because she does not expect you to bond with her friends either. After all, her closeness to your friends has very little to do with the quality of your relationship.
2. Some Men Think It’s An Issue If She Often Works Late
Some guys often complain about their girls working late, thinking that this affects the quality of their relationship. As far as these men are concerned, this time should be spent building the relationship.
What such guys fail to realize is that girls care about building their careers as well. In any case, the weekends and other times together offer plenty of time for you to bond as a couple, which means working late isn’t such a big deal.
3. Some Guys Feel Bad That She Sometimes Can’t Handle Her Drinking
Obviously, anybody’s inability to handle their liquor all the time should be a big concern. However, some guys have a problem because their girlfriends can’t keep their drinking in control, even if this happens every once in a while.
Sometimes, a girl needs to let loose and forget all the difficulties she faces in her life. The problem is that guys will get upset when their girlfriends can’t handle their drinking even once and then do the same thing.
4. Guys Are Often Concerned That The Girl Is Taller Than Him
Some guys are genuinely bothered that the girl they are dating is taller than them. This is ridiculous because if the height difference was such a huge deal for her, she would not have hooked up with him in the first place.
In any case, there is nothing that can be done about this situation, although some guys tend to be very sensitive about it.
Insecurities are hardly ever flattering, and they can make a relationship weaker. So, guys dating women taller than them should not focus on height differences because girls don’t really care about this.
5. Guys Are Concerned That They Aren’t Macho Bad Guys For Their Girls
Geeky and nerdy guys often feel bad that they aren’t as macho as the bad boys they see in movies, and they think this is also an issue for girls. Some succumb to the pressure of being more macho and end up being jerks.
Such guys need to get that some girls are just not into macho guys, which is why they never hooked up with them in the first place. Trying to be macho only makes them less appealing to girls attracted to nerdy or typical nice guys.
6. There Are Guys Who Think Girls Care If He Has A Beard Or Not
Some guys think girls care so much about issues like the color of the t-shirt and how they shave their beards.
A few go to the extent of wanting to hear what their girlfriends think about this, forcing them to have an opinion about something they don’t really care about.
However, the truth is that a girl saw more than a beard or a hilarious taste in t-shirts in you before deciding to be your partner. Believe it or not, if your facial hair was such a big deal, she would have mentioned it already.
7. Some Guys Think That Girls Are Deeply Concerned When He Makes Less Money
Many girls earn a lot more than their male counterparts in this day and age, including their lovers. However, some guys still feel emasculated when the girlfriend is making more money than they do.
Strong, independent women don’t care about that, which is why they have no problem being involved with guys who earn less than them. As long as the guy is doing his best, the girl is okay even if he does not make as much as she does.
8. Some Guys Think It’s An Issue If She Does Not Text Back Immediately After Receiving Their Texts
Some guys get offended and even insecure when a girl does not reply to their messages instantly. However, girls don’t usually care about answering texts as soon as possible.
While healthy and open communication matters, nobody should be under the pressure of always being available to answer messages and calls. Sometimes, other things are taking up her attention.
So, it does not mean she no longer cares about you if she can’t answer your messages immediately. She could be in the shower or busy with something else.
9. Some Men Are Too Concerned About Her Monthly Period
Periods are absolutely natural, and yet some guys make a big deal out of them. To girls, this time of the month is completely natural, and a guy does not have to make a big deal out of it.
So getting grossed out seems immature because to girls, periods are very natural and normal.
10. Some Guys Think That Girls Will Care That He Has Female Friends
There are guys who think that they should never have female friends because they have a girlfriend. They think their partners would never entertain this.
While insanely jealous girls do exist, most ladies don’t really mind that their boyfriends have female friends as long as the girl understands that there is nothing more going on.
However, there are guys who avoid having female friends as a way to find justification to keep their girls from having guy friends because they are insecure. Insecurity breeds distrust, and that ultimately strains a relationship.
11. Some Men Think Girls Care When You’re Into Things She Doesn’t Care About
Guys sometimes fail to understand that their girlfriends can be indifferent to what they are so passionate about. There is nothing wrong with this, and it does not mean the girl does not love or care about him.
After all, there are plenty of things girls are crazy about that most guys would never care about. So, it is okay to pursue your passions, even if your partner might not be as interested in them.
12. Some Guys Think That Girls Don’t Like Being Involved In Particular Household Chores
Around the house, some responsibilities tend to fall on the guy. However, that does not mean that the girl would feel terrible if she had to them while you were still around.
Girls have no problem getting their hands dirty once in a while, and they can happily help out with ‘manly’ chores every once in a while.
13. Some Guys Think Girls Hate Being On Their Own
There are guys who seem to think that the girlfriend always needs company to be happy, whether it be from him, her family, or her friends. However, like men, girls also cherish some alone time.
We all have ways we enjoy our time alone, even when we are in happy relationships. So, just because she sometimes seems to want some time alone does not mean you do not measure up as her partner.
To sum up, relationship misconceptions will never end. So, if you are a guy in a relationship with that girl you love, make sure you know these things about her to enhance your relationship.
