She’s gorgeous. Shes got a lovely skin. Why does she spend so much time to do her make-up? Why does she never mean what she says?
While there may be a laundry list of things guys do that leave ladies wondering, there are a few things that girls do that men can’t seem to wrap their heads around. As a guy with so much experience with girls, I’m gonna show you the mystery behind some of the things they are constantly caught doing that leave guys itching for answers.
1.) Taking Forever To Get Ready
When it comes to getting ready for a fun night out, they definitely like to take their time prepping for whatever shenanigans they are going to get themselves into. They want to make sure that they smell nice, that their hair is well-coiffed, that their make-up is perfect and that we’re wearing the hottest outfit. But, in-between that beautifying process there is much more that needs to be done. They need to make sure they have the proper pre-game music playing, especially when “their song” comes on. And obviously, they need the good alcohol set out for when the time comes to take that mid-hair straightening shot. Not to mention going around and asking all of their friends how they look. Basically, it’s a process…but they wouldn’t have it any other way.

2.) Losing Their Rubber Bands And Bobbie Pins
Okay, it might be nice if they keep hair accessories in one central location, but they’re hard to keep track of when they have hundreds and hundreds of them. My apologies if my hair band miraculously ends up on the handle of the doorknob, or collects dust somewhere in the corner of the room. Most of us would rather have their hair bands and Bobbie pins scattered around the place in the event they have of one of those hair emergencies. They never know where they might be when they need one.
3.) Having “Nothing” To Wear In Their Closet
This is their equivalent of guys looking at their video game collection and claiming they have nothing to play. There is no worse feeling than to stare blankly into a closet full of outdated clothing, wishing you had that new top from Urban or that gorgeous body-con dress from Nordstrom. Let’s be honest, we’re girls…and outfit repeating is out of the question. Nobody said it was a crime to try to stay in the fashion limelight, or vamp up their wardrobe. There’s nothing a little retail therapy can’t fix.
It might be one of the most painful experiences they meet besides childbirth, but it is completely necessary when it comes to grooming their selves. Sure shaving is always practical, but it’s nice to have that smooth skin for a little longer than a few days. Keeping up with hair growth can be exhausting and unless you want to see us with hairy legs, don’t roll your eyes every time they complain about the pain. If anything, they should be applauded for some of the things they go through just to look so smooth.
5.) Wearing Heels, Then Complaining About It
As a female, they are automatically planned to have an obsession with shoes. For any occasion that may come their way, they need a variety of shoes to choose from. They wear sneakers when they workout, sandals when it’s warm out, boots when it’s cold, and heels when we’re feeling extra fancy (and boys, don’t act like you don’t like them). They like the way heels complement their outfits and make their legs look miles long, so for us, it’s well worth the late night struggle when the time comes to walk home.
6.) Denying Compliments
Without a doubt, girls love compliments. But sometimes, they do like to keep up at least the slightest bit of modesty when it comes to receiving them. Guys may not understand this, but when a girl walks up to another girl and raves about how pretty she looks one night, she doesn’t simply say “OMG I know right, thank you” and immediately strut off in the opposite direction. It’s simply girl code to respond in a way that doesn’t leave us looking like conceded bitches (even if they do look really good). While a typical answer might be, “No way I look like I just woke-up, but you look amazing,” this is just their way of staying humble and ensuring more compliments from the said girl in the future. They keep up their reputation and their ego…it’s a win-win.
7.) Their Tendency To Say One Thing But Mean Another
Sometimes I sympathize with men when it comes to this because as a girl, I know they are all guilty of this at some point in their lives…maybe more. I know it’s confusing. Regardless, there are times when they want other people to test a situation for themselves, and not taking their own words for what they are. Sure for their birthday, they might say they don’t want any presence. But let’s be honest, who doesn’t want presents on their birthday?! Sometimes they say things they don’t mean because they don’t want to seem high-maintenance or needy. Other times it’s because we’re just trying to give you a hard time. Just kidding! We’re not trying to make their life miserable or reiterate that you would fail miserably as a mind reader, but all we’re asking for is a little-unexpected thoughtfulness here and there.
8.) Going For Bad Boys Over Good Guys
Every girl says she wants a nice guy but goes for the bad guy. Why? I’m just going to cut to the chase and say that bad boys can be intriguing and good guys have a reputation of being…well…boring. Some girls like how bad boys enjoy living on the edge and exploring their rebellious side. But for others, that can only go so far. Yes, girls do enjoy being with someone who can help them escape from their shells and have a little fun now and then. But other girls like guys who might not be as wild and adventurous. These so-called nice guys are typically well-mannered, respectful and have good values (not to say bad boys don’t have these characteristics, but we’re describing general types here). In the grand scheme of things, it all comes down to their preferences and what they like in a guy. Not all bad boys are strictly bad and not all good guys are strictly good. Everyone has their own little perks.
9.) Wearing Make-up
I appreciate when guys claim they prefer a girl who’s “Au Naturale,” but let’s be real…even at their most “natural” state, they are still wearing at least a bit of make-up. And if you’re one of those girls who’s reading this and shaking their head as if you don’t wear the slightest bit of mascara or tinted moisturizer before you walk out the door, I’m afraid you’re lying to yourself and everyone else. They like to call it the No-make-up make-up look. As women, they are gifted with the abilities to know how to make their skin bronzer, their cheekbones higher, and their eyes bigger and brighter (AKA they’re professional illusionist). It’s not their fault guys don’t realize they don’t just wake up looking like that.
10.) The Infamous Duck Face
Yes, they are guilty of using the duck face more than they should, and it continues to boggle men’s minds. But, it does stress their cheekbones and make their lips look fuller. It’s their way of being cute and sexy at the same time…or so they think.
