    This is true to the point where the reflex is virtually uncontrollable. If a girl has a low cut top the first thing we look at are the boobs. Usually we can pull it off without them realising... i think
    No you can't. Ever.

    We know when a guy is checking us out. We know when a guy has 'subtly' groped us in a club. We know when a guy fancies us, it's not rocket science to work out.

    Also re the getting ready thing. I don't think guys appreciate how long it takes for hair to dry. Men can have a shower and go out within 20 minutes. Even if their hair hasn't yet dried it will do quickly and will look exactly the same. Left to dry on it own my hair takes a minimum of 3 hours and will always look lanky and straight, bleh. And also, don't whine about it because we all know you'd rather have a women who takes pride in her appearance than one who doesn't.

    But after a session at the gym you don't feel so tired that you just want to sleep. You're right though, men do usually do most of the work.
    I do But I suffer from dyspraxia which makes me constantly knackered, even when I've just woken up. I can't remember the last time I wasn't tired.

    Either way, I fall asleep after the act, much to the dismay of my fiancee :awesome: In all fairness I fall asleep watching TV so it should be expected

    Aww congratulations on your engagement! (This could have happened ages ago but I wanted to congratulate you anyway)

    Sometimes particularly active sex can take it out of you. It's cool. I'm sure she doesn't mind you falling asleep.

    November 2011 but thank you anyway

    Even if she does, I'm asleep anyway

    Some phrases. Men recognise that the term "bubbly with a pretty face" generally means fat, some women get this and others don't.

    Seriously never describe a friend as being "bubbly with a pretty face" to a guy.

    That we don't just ignore talented women and hire men instead; it's just women don't often even apply, and if they do, they normally bugger off after a few years to hatch their younglings.
    In all fairness, they're your "younglings" too.

    They're not mine.

    For some pretty sound reasons of biology, I won't be having children. Other people's children are not mine.

    I meant 'you' as in 'men'. Not specifically you. Men who are given a job are just as likely to become parents as women, it's just unfortunate that women have to take time off due to the physical aspects of pregnancy/childbirth/etc. Although the balance may change considering the fact that it's becoming more common for men to share in leave much more equally than ever.

    PMS does exist.
    We are widely aware of that, thanks.

    I beg to differ. A good hard kick to the balls would definitely be as painful if not more painful than birth. It can paralyze a guy with pain for days. Plus, women get all these hormonal releases to help them deal with the pain. We don't get any of that. I think people just say that because women do all the work in bringing the baby into the world (usually) minus the sex, so they deserve a little ass-kissing and validation.
    How many people have you heard of that have died from being kicked in the balls? Now compare that to the number of women that have died in childbirth. :rolleyes:

    No, they don't. They choose to. My mother didn't take a single day off work after either my birth or that of my sister.

    Not a single day? So she wasn't kept in hospital at all? Her labour handily fell outside of working hours? Fair play to her.

    Also, girls don't appreciate how hard it can be for a boy to piss in the morning straight after they wake up...

    Goes all up the walls and shower curtains and that.



    no worries hah!
    And that's why you piss in the shower.

    Also, I'm intrigued by how many women find it awkward talking about periods to other women. None of my female friends have much of a problem discussing it. :dontknow:

    This is something that might even be unknown to many girls but is certainly unknown to all men.

    The pain from having genital hair get stuck to the glue from the pad. Sometimes close trimming/shaving has its benefits.
    Or when you havent trimmed or waxed in a while/ when you've only just started and you've not got to the age where you trim, and blood gets tangled in it !! :puke:

    The legal requirement now is at least 2 weeks off. But the physical aspects are that often it's too much for a women to go back then, and they do have a legal right to at least 6 months should they want to.
    I don't think people should have a legal right to maternity or paternity leave at all; having a child is entirely voluntary and you shouldn't get special privileges for availing yourself of a voluntary choice.

    I disagree with practically all of employment law; in my opinion, the only 'employment right' you should have is the right to quit.

    Casting couch, I think. (google it)


    And I've got one.
    If I talk to you it doesn't mean that I have a crush on you. I don't think this applies to many people over 10, but boy, as a kid if you talked to someone of the opposite gender, bam, you automatically fancy them. Gah, so annoying.

    Most men have tried to suck themselves. If you know what I mean.

    Hah that made me laugh. In the same way it's obvious to you when a girl likes a guy, it's obvious to us when a guy likes a girl. It doesn't work the other way round, I'm afraid to say that girls are either clueless when it comes to this or deluded into thinking everyone likes them.

    You'd be the first man I'd met that actually had... We were all just bantering man, didn't you get the memo?

    :rofl:. Priceless.

    My one would be that you don't need PMS to be in a bad mood for no reason. Sometimes you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, this doesn't mean there's something wrong or that a guy has had any sort of complex thought at all, and pestering him with 'what's wrong/why bad mood/relationship talk' just makes it worse.
