    When I talk to my girl friends, they always seem to stress over the smallest of things. Like their hair and stuff lol. But when I talk to my guy friends, they're so chilled? Generally, they have this attitude where it's like they make you feel so calm, whereas when I'm talking to a girl friend we talk about stuff and it leads to all sort of stressing stuff. So why is it that you guys are so chilled about life? And us girlies tend not to be this chilled :cool:

    I suppose you could say there are more expectations forced upon girls, we are taught to act a certain way and even restrain ourselves to a certain extent. There are lots of pressures that come with being a woman, I think it's quite a complex issue.

    I think the behaviour is innate most of the time and not socialised. Because girls of almosr all cultures are said to act like this

    Yep as a girl I always tried to adopt the male attitude towards life, but crazy-stressed moments seem unavoidable!!

    People always say I'm laid back but the truth is I just don't care about 1/2 the meanless crap they do.

    My female friends claim their eyelashes are important. They are not. No man ever has gone "I won't date you because your eyelash is too big".

    Men just care about less stuff then women do. The hobbies we do have, be it sports or games, tend to be competitive and long term meaningless.

    I disagree, most cultures are still largely patriarchal. Women are not born insecure or anxious, these are not innate 'qualities,' these are things that can account for female behaviour.

    I disagree. I certainly don't aspire to be what society expects of women. I am not a collective entity, for what society perceives women should behave like. I just act like me :ahee:. You only start truly living life when you stop pleasing people.

    Not insecure or anxious, but more "feeling" instead of "thinking". More emotional then logical.

    To a certain extent, but not always. So you'd argue men are more logical than they are emotional?

    In general. Not denying there's logical women and emotional men. I'm just talking about general trends which is all you can do when talking about large groups.

    And there aren't on men? Social pressure weighs down on men too.

    This is so true. A bomb squad and the army were at my local shopping centre because they thought a bomb had been planted in there. I was freaking out and wanting to go home but my guy friend was so chilled out and telling me not to worry. We were standing across the road from it and he didn't even care! I managed to drag him on a bus anyway.

    This is quite a generalisation. More importantly, men might be equally as stressed but choose to hide their emotions as they're socialised into doing that etc.
