Straight From His Lips: 8 Men Myths That Aren’t Always True

November 9, 2011  |  


I’ve heard that if you want to get misguided information about men, take all of your advice from other women. We’ve all heard women, young and old, offer their interpretations of male behavior.  Many of us have even conjured up our own hypotheses as to why they cheat, how much they don’t listen, and why they lack emotions. Although some of our information has come from our observations or witnessing shady men at inappropriate times, most of our advice about men comes from the rantings of other women.

Through experience with a variety of men, other women can definitely offer advice and do’s and don’ts when it comes to men; but, what better way to gain insight on men than by asking other men? Some of our interpretations are just as accurate as we assumed them to be; but others, not so much.

Here are 8 myths that most women either believe or have heard about men. Consider these eight men myths debunked by the men themselves.

    Dear Madme Noire, the ads are annoying, and can be easily bypassed, however, you’re pissing your visitors off with the insane amount of clicking just to navigate through  your site.

    I wouldn’t call these ‘myths’ so much as stereotypes. They aren’t false, merely true most of most of the time. Not all of the time.

    I don’t even know what to say.

    The biggest myth there is : A man can not love you and appreciate you for who you are. It is also impractical to believe that just because a man has good features, credit, personality traits, etc that he will be in search of other women.

    LOL at #4
    No matter what he says, he DOES care about your sexual history. Don’t believe me? Let it slip that you slept with the entire NY Knicks starting line up and watch him disappear in “the twinkling if an eye”……. and no you won’t be able to blame it on the rapture. LMAO
    This list has some serious hits and misses forreal. LOL

      Insecure men, care about your sexual past.  Most men I know don’t want to discuss it because they are in no hurry to discuss their past either, because in my experience women are more likely to hold your sexual past against you.  I can’ tell you how many women I have dated that wanted to not only interrogate me about my past but hold me accountable for it.  So thanks but no thanks, i don’t want to hear about your past unless it is relevant to our future together.

    On Men Like To Make The First Move, I have always told all women who asked me to go talk to a man if they feel him. Not only might you be passing on a chance of a lifetime, but it shows that you can take charge of a situation  when you feel strongly about it.
    On the other hand, not all women who approach guys necessarily want something out of it, and guys should be aware of this.
