Things Women Do that Confuse the Hell Out of Men

Hanging with hoes
I didn’t call her a ho, you did; so why do you go out with her every Friday night? It’s always interesting when women bash their “friends” but they keep said friend around. Not only does it confuse us but it also makes us rather skeptical of your judgment. Birds of a feather flock together and if you’re calling her a jumpoff I’m wondering if you’re a little froggy yourself.

    Not all women

  • Mz NYC1124

    Men know women just a lil bit better than they believe they do , they just choose to ACT as though they r unaware . All a female needs is a man to treat her as a woman . COMMUNICATE !!! when she wants to talk about something u do thats bothering her , she is trying to address it with u because she cares and doesnt want this to hinder you guys progression in the relationship. Be considerate . Use ur brain atleast 75% of the time . Be Faithful and Loyal . Be SUPPORTIVE . Love unconditional. BE spontaneous . Atleast ACT interested in our girly things u really dont care about . Show her from time to time the things u did in the beginning to get her so that u can KEEP HER . This is all a good woman wants from a MAN and i guarantee she will treat u like a king and more . uhhhhh DUH !

    While I do agree that a persons occupation does not determine their worth as a person, anyone who is involved in an illegal venture(whether the "face" is legitimate or not)generally falls under the catgeory of a "bum". Illegal ventures are much too risky and put everyone connected with the person involved in that venture at risk. Why even consider the possibility of tying up your future(or present) with someone whose occupation puts you at unneccesarily high risk? Why run the chance of having children who might have to visit their father in prison?Or worse, in a cemetary? Why be with a man against whom you'rel ikely have to testify against in court at some point? I will give it to you that many of these guys have A+ business skills, but the application of these skills is the issue. Additionally, I dont feel that someone who would provide a steady stream of substances that are known to wreak havoc on mind & body & potentially end the user's life would be too far from the definition of a bum. At the very least, it shows a gross lack of regard for human life, and betrays a lack of fellow feeling and conscience. neither of which I would say are desirable qualities in ANYONE.

  • FemaleBOOTYInspector

    Women confusing men??? Stop the press!! lol!! What else new?? I just rather have a FWB( Female with BOOTY) than deal with all the other stuff!! Fellas, find u a chic with her own social life, her own stuff (female jargon: INDEPENDENT) no dating, "hanging out" and strictly sexual!! Make that known up front.

    All that drama, mess, "trying to figure her out" leave that for NEXT MAN to deal with!! ha

    • eve

      Stop going to the same places u find those women

  • CMARIE

    lmao!!

  • Elliott Green

    This post was ON POINT!!! I've been confused by the first one (Hanging wit hoes) my whole life! I never understood why a chick who claim she don't get down like that would spend her time hanging out with a chick or chicks who do. Whats worse is if your boys are known dogs she know damn well she's gonna have a problem trusting you hanging with them! I'm sorry but, the way I see it people are who they hang with. But that's just my opinion.

    Yeah I think the "I'm fine" one has reached the top of the list of the two words men most dread to hear. I was married to a wonderful woman for 11 years who passed away from cancer last year, and this was one of the biggest dilemmas I had in our relationship. When a guy says "I'm fine" to a another guy it means, "I'm fine. Everything is going to be okay." So our brains are programmed that way. When my wife would say, "I'm fine," literally 99% of the time it would mean, "I'm angry, and you should know why I'm angry and apologize for it." We guys we really are dense, our minds are programmed to want to think on the guy communication wavelength. I mean eventually I learned to reprocess and understand the woman communication definition on this, but then it would break down to:
    Me: "What's wrong?"
    Wife: "Nothing."
    Me: "No really, please, just tell me what's wrong? Can we talk about it?"
    Wife: "It's nothing."
    Me: "No really, please can you tell me what's upsetting you, because I know if we don't talk about it you're going to be really mad at me. I know there's something wrong I can see it in your face."
    Then later if I didn't finally succeed, usually I wouldn't, it was more a matter if I could succeed in guessing what was wrong or not, then she would be mad that "we didn't talk about our problems" haha.

    This being said we had a great relationship and loved each other very much, it's just probably the biggest difficulty in which men and women have trying to understand how to communicate with each other when we have very different communication programming in our heads. "I'm fine" I think is the biggest one.

    • eggplanttony

      Sigh, when they're gone you even miss them saying, "I'm fine." heh. Please don't take this as me criticizing my wife, it's just an example of laughing at a foible that really has a lot of truth to it. We didn't fight often but I'd say 90% of the times that we did this is exactly how the argument conversation started. I miss her so much everyday, haha even the "I'm fine"

  • MerkPhilly

    Most women are bi-polar and dont even know it.
    I cant stand a wishy-washy chick that's always on an emotional roller coaster.They b1tch about wanting good men when they themselves aint sh1t.The majority of the time a women wants the EXACT OPPOSITE of what they say.
    Most women I know personally aren't good ones and dont deserve a good dude,they like being cheated on and gettin dumped and played.If a women says "I cant find or looking for a good man" then I already know she isn't sh1t.

    • eve

      Alot of young woman do want a good man and when they do find they freak because they have been hurt at one time or more so men need is patience and show them u r a good man

  • WiseWoman

    No. 2 RULE – when you want to have your friends around, play computer games all night and you know your woman is tired or wants a bit of you and her time… then tell you friends within reason 'it's about time to leave'.
    Don't wait for you woman to start stomping around in the kitchn, slamming things done, giving the evil eye… being sarcastic or other to take the hint that your friends have out stayed their welcome.

    No. 3 RULE
    Man up!

    I'm at work now – and cannot write the rest of the rules…. you men are very lucky that i don't have the time at the moment

    • S H

      @Wise Woman-What does 'Man up' mean? When should it be time to 'Woman up'?

  • WiseWoman

    I agree on SOME parts. Now 99.9% of the time when a man asks a woman what wrong, its usually before she has asked him to do some, tired of chasing, or he has said the wrong thing to upset or hurt or. Some men don't think when they do things or say things… but now means their lack of consideration should be a defence.

    It's true… some men don't care… women are far more attentive toward their men then men are to women… so we will get upset when we are NOT GETTING BACK WHAT WE DESERVE! PLAIN AND SIMPLE!.

    NO. 1 Rule – If you have to ask you women, 'whats wrong baby'… you know you have done something wrong.
    If there is really not you have done, consider yourself lucky this time!!!!

    • S H

      @Wise Woman-What you posted is utter drivel!

  • Monique

    I'm with you Jae. I have a friend that was a hoe. But she never changed how everyone else was around her and now she is the reformed one. Now happily married and a Minister to boot. Funny how things can change.

  • doubledip recession

    Why the endless talk about hoes? Many of you women don’t even expect to get paid when you get horizontal!

    And dating bums!that’s 100% accurate. What is up with a beautiful looking lady out with a loser on food stamps with pants hanging…how do you look at the guy & think I WANT SOME.

    This soooo true. I think I'm really a guy in a woman's body because these are just a few of the reasons I've never had any sister friends. I don't get half the stuff we women do, but I am guilty of saying "I'm fine" when I'm seething inside.

  • MATHMATICS

    Prince Edward you dIidnt hold a gun to these women heads either .. most of these broads.. if you ask them do they believe in God they will say yea .. i believe in Jesus.. AND I GO TO CHURCH too..
    these chicks will say IM TRYING TO FIND ME A GOOD MAN IN CHURCH.. (THE BIBLE SAY LEAVE YOUR LEGS CLOSE UNTIL THE CONTRACT IS SIGNED)
    IF YOU ASK ME THE BLACK CHURCH IS FULL OF HOES .. THE BLACK CHURCH IS SUPPORTING THE FILTH ON THE RADIO YALL BE IN THE CLUBS FRI AND SAT NIGHT .. AND THEN IN CHURCH ON SUNDAY .. ITS NO WONDER BLACK YOUTH OUR LOST. MALCOM X SAID IT BEST WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE YOURSELF…

  • Janell

    The communication one is the biggest issue out of all of these that men probably have to deal with. I definitely do agree that women with that kind of problem should try a bit harder in communicating with their partner. I will also say that this issues does not always stem from the woman not wanting to communicate or even wanting their man to become a mind reader; sometimes women get tired of always bringing up issues that they have probably already addressed time and time again. No woman wants to become a nag. So sometimes we choose to just keep quiet.

  • soWhat

    These are indications that space it needed to see what is and what is not working. Everyone should be entitled to be happy and free in a relationship. If your not sure what your personal happiness is, maybe it's time to peacefully part ways. Relationships aren't a place for constant drama, life is too short and bullsh*t relationships are too long.

  • numero uno

    Sigh at not being able to read someones mind, COMMUNICATE! If I cant figure out whats wrong im only going to revert to previous arguments thinking your head is still there. We all got bummy days big deal.

  • Guest

    Sometimes you don't know a guy is a bum until you have a date with him, lol. I have had professional, seemed like he got it together, good looking guys approach me for dinner dates. Then you go out with them, when they are not in their office clothes and they look and act like rats (wandering eyes, forgot their wallet, etc.) Men play just as many games if not more than women so don't put it all on us. I even had a male friend tell me once that he purposely leaves his wallet at home on a first date to see if the chick will pick up the tab. Ninja please, don't ask me out if you are going to play games, lol. If you can't afford to fill up the tank, boo, you can't afford to drive it.

    • weethomas

      So if I filled the tank then I can immediately drive. . .

  • Curtis

    Women who ignore good guys, date bum ass dudes and then turn around and complain…never understood that

  • Anna

    Just wanted to say this….

    Hanging with hoes: Men hang out with hoes too! In the clique of men there is always a hound and you hang with him though.

    Delusions of grandeur: I'll give you that one.

    "I’m fine”… No you’re not: Usually this is how the conversation goes:
    He: You okay?
    She *visibly upset*: No, I'm fine.
    He *shrugs*: Okay
    *Chews on an apple and walks away.*

    Dating Bums: Don't we have to wade through the bums to find the good ones? It's not like men come with labels like "USDA Fresh", "Slightly Irregular", or even "Refurbished".

    #justsayin

    • whatevr

      The labels could at least help us out.

    • Taye

      Hilarious. ROFL @ usda fresh, slightly irregular, and refurbished

      I have been there like most guys wit the are you ok thing. As a guy we can be private wit our emotions sometimes so if you say nothing is wrong and it is obvious something is we figure it must be something you want to deal wit on our own. IF YOU DONT WANT TO DEAL WIT IT ON YOUR OWN THEN SAY WHAT IS WRONG. Its that simple.

  • a real man

    GUESS WHAT WOMEN? WHEN YOU HAVE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FEMALES IN THIS ARTICLE YOU SCARE EVERYONE AWAY FROM YOU.. NOT JUST MEN, BUT EVERYONE.. LIKE YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CO WORKERS… WHO WANTS TO BE THE PERSON THAT MAKES EVERYBODY MISERABLE? WHO WANTS TO BE THE PERSON THAT MAKES PEOPLE WANNA SLIT BOTH OF THEIR RISK AND JUMP OF A BRIDGE AT THE SAME TIME?

  • Tim

    I also cant stand when woman are like " Oh I don't want you to get me anything" (Valentines, Birthdays) Then get upset when you don't

    • Jae

      What is wrong with the "I" on your keyboard?

  • Prissy

    Again some things make sense, then others don't make sense. Sometimes guys can be just as confusing. A lot of things they do make me sit back and scratch my head sometimes. Like it seems in 2011 the roles have reversed and the women are "acting" like men and vice versa. It boggles my mind how men always call some of us crazy, loud or even "fast", yet those are the kind of women I see (especially on my campus) that have boyfriends. The stuff men usually say (my guy friends, I hear them talking about women all the time), are not what they want, tend to actually be dating and showing off those women in public. Soooo I really can not take this list seriously. It all boils down to the personal opinions .

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=525241592 Alvin Anyiah

      Trust me prissy this list is pretty accurate. This is coming from a guy.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=525241592 Alvin Anyiah

      Also alot of times guys would date those type of girls you mentioned because they are the easiest. They do most of the work. For example SHE will come on to the guy. Therefore its all in the bag. Most guys wont turn down a girl esp when they are young.

      • http://www.facebook.com/anissapoore Anissa Poore

        Ok, now I am probably a lot older than the both of you. The accuracy of this list leaves suspicion in even my eyes. I agree with the "Jedhi mind reading trick-thing", but all the rest can very easily be the same comments women have concerning men.

    • http://www.facebook.com/simplydenice Sarah Denice Harris

      Prissy, I agree with you! At this point I am a graduate student, but even when I was an undergrad I had a man tell me, "I don't want to go out with you, or sit with you in public, because I don't want people knowin our business," but I would then see him holding hands, etc with a girl who had a horrible reputation. The females on college campuses who have little going for themselves do tend to have long-term boyfriends and what not, it's a strange phenomenon.

  • JustAshley

    None of these apply to me. I was going to say #5 applies but I've never dated an unemployed, gay, or homeless dude. LOL That's just crazy.
    *
    If I have a problem I will tell you.
    *
    Women who hang with hoes- are hoes.
    *
    Never had a f*ck buddy but I've heard this scenario from my male friends plenty of times. LOL Its usually the chicks who are convinced they have magic boxes that will hypnotize the man into loving them forever if they get some. Its laughable really. LOL

    • a real man

      YOU HAVE NEVER HAD A f*CK bUDDY?( YEAH RIGHT FACE)

      • JustAshley

        Don't be mad at me cause you roll with hoes honey. LOL

    • girliusmaximus

      That's not true. A "promiscuous" (that is the correct term) woman can sleep with as many men as she can handle and still have your back as your friend.

    • http://www.facebook.com/simplydenice Sarah Denice Harris

      LOL I agree with you 100%. I was once involved in a "casual" relationship with a male friend until I learned he was still in a relationship. His ex, girlfriend, or whoever she really was, wrote me an elaborate story about how this wasn't the first time he's done this, etc. I stopped messing with him and chose to not tell her the truth about our "friendship" because she was the type to continue dating this man. I will never understand why some women are like this.

    • Sofie

      I totally agree! A friend of mine once said, if you have a cheater on your hands -you know! No one has to tell you! You simpy go on denying it and you justify your denial with love, perhaps the financial stability that youre being provided with or your desperate need for a relationship.

    • Rikki

      You hit that one right on the head!!

  • QueSpr90

    I have to agree with the mind reading. Just tell me what's wrong. My not being clairvoyant shouldn't translate into my not caring about you because I don't "just know" what's wrong with you. Be a grownup and communicate.

  • http://www.angrylarry.com Angry Larry

    I agree with a few of these, particular the one about I'm fine, no you're not. My Ex was good at this. You ever been with someone and you gain this sense that something is wrong with them? I would ask "baby you ok, you seem upset" she would either tell me whats wrong or she would say she is fine. If I don't try to find out whats bothering her she will get upset with me and act like I don't really care about her. Yet if I keep pushing and trying to find out whats wrong, she gets upset and says something like "I told you I'm fine".

    Its a no win situation for us men and we have to just accept it, I usually just walk away and tell her "I'm here if you need to talk baby". That way she knows that I care and that I'm willing to wait until she is ready to talk.
