49 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

Here are 49 Things That Girls Should Know About Guys. Read them carefully because these things can help you improve your relationships.

1. Guys aren’t psychiatrists, mind telling them what you mean?
2. Guys don’t like to be used as pawns in trying to make your friends jealous.
3. Guys tend to get serious with their relationship and become too possessive. Better watch out girls.
4. The biggest turn on for guys are the girls who workout.
5. Girls who don’t want to listen to the truth shouldn’t be asking any questions.
6. Ending a heated conversation with “Fine” or “Whatever” isn’t considered acceptable.
7. If you want sex, just ask.
8. Don’t expect guys to say as many sweet things as they do in the movies. It takes 10 couples to come up with one sweet thing that they put up in the movies.
9. Only models are able to carry off most of the stuff you see in fashion magazines.
10. A guy who likes you wants to be the only guy you talk to.
11. A guy would sacrifice his money for lunch just to get you a couple of roses.
12. Guys need to be reassured often that they’re still loved.
13. Guys don’t care about how gorgeous you are, it’s goodbye, adios, and sayonara if you’re being a bitch.
14. All guys are kinky and willing to try anything that you may enjoy, just let them know.
15. Guys are more emotional than you think. If they loved you at one point, it’ll take them a lot longer than you think to let you go, and it hurts every second that they try.
16. A guy would do just about anything to get you to notice him.
17. Guys do not look into minute detailing. So, if you gave up a quarter of an inch from your 20 inches long hair, don’t expect your guy to know that instantly.
18. Guys like porn!
19. Anything said six months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All comments become null and void after seven days.
20. “The game is on” will be considered an acceptable excuse to postpone any serious conversations.
21. Cooking makes a girl all the more attractive.
22. You can’t get mad if your guy refuses to hook up your “ugly friend” with one of his good-looking friends.
23. Nothing you will ever do will entitle you to operate the remote control, unless operating means handing it to him.
24. The only thing left to be said after sex is “goodnight.”
25. Video games have helped men develop awesome finger skills that only encourage them to play more often.

26. Critiquing a man’s driving is outright unacceptable.
27. Guys’ night outs are sacred events. If you ask any question about it, you’ll be castigated.
28. Believe it or not, 99.5% of the time men honestly don’t mean to hurt you.
29. Guys may be flirting around all day but before they go to sleep, they always think about the girl they truly care about.
30. Guys hate it when you talk about your ex-boyfriend or ex love-interest.
31. If a guy tells you about his problems, he just needs someone to listen to him. You don’t need to give advice.
32. Don’t hold it against your guy if he starts to cry after a good sports movie, and was laughing outrageously last night when the two of you were watching an emotional drama saga.
33. Leaving a message like “You know what?! Mmm… Never mind…” would make a guy hanging on to that thought all day long and reach a conclusion that is far from what you are thinking. Don’t ever do that!
34. A usual act that proves that the guy likes you is when he teases you.
35. Guys love you more than you love them.
36. No matter how much guys talk about hotness or sex appeal, personality is key.
37. When a guy says he is going crazy about the girl, he really is. Guys rarely say that.
38. If a guy starts to talk seriously, listen to him. It doesn’t happen that often, so when it does, you know something’s up.
39. A guy has more problems than you can see with your naked eyes.
40. Guys talk about girls more than girls talk about guys.
41. You like when your guy calls and asks you out for dinner and pays for you, right? Well yeah, guys like it once in a while too.
42. It’s natural for a guy’s eyes to wander.
43. It’s not that guys don’t want to make their girlfriends happy; it’s just that sometimes, they don’t know how.
44. A guy would give his right arm to be able to read a girl’s mind for a day.
45. Not all guys are jerks. Just because one is a jackass doesn’t mean he represents all of them.
46. When a guy sacrifices his sleep and health just to be with you, he isn’t doing it all for sex. It means he likes you more than you can imagine.
47. Even if you dumped a guy months ago and he loved you, he probably still does and if he had one wish it would be to have you back in his life.
48. Guys love girls with brains more than girls in miniskirts.
49. A guy would waste his time over video games and football, the way a girl would do over novels and make-ups.

34 Comments to 49 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew

  1. 1/5 of this advice is blatantly stupid and will undoubtedly cause you to screw up your relationships, should you choose to follow it.

    • I totally agree with Jensen. There are guys out there (like me) who hate po*n, will quickly leave if you ask for s**, are totally turned off by girls who are trying to be “sexy” &c.

      And i already know how to cook, and I do put down the toilet seat…..so there.

      However, I agree with 5, 10, and 48.

    • Agreed. Number 24 is dumb. I’m a female and I love passing out. But any guy I’ve been with always tries to talk and cuddle with me. Also, number 21 “I” love a guy that can cook. Number 35 is just retarded ..you can’t prove that about anyone, period. Number 42 is not just a one way road. Also, not ALL guys like sports.. I’ve met many who could careless. This whole article is a joke.

  2. The title should be “49 Things Insecure Guys Wish Girls Knew”
    Ex. Men don’t care if their girl is talking to another guy.

  3. This is probably one of the most stupid, sexist, and distasteful article/”list” I’ve come across on the Internet. I mean, who the hell is able to justify that [20. “The game is on” will be considered an acceptable excuse to postpone any serious conversations.]; [21. Cooking makes a girl all the more attractive.]; & [42. It’s natural for a guy’s eyes to wander.]?!?!?!

  4. This article pissed me off to no end. I couldn’t even finish reading. It’s the type of misogynistic shit I hate seeing. “Cooking makes a girl all the more attractive” “You can’t get mad if your guy refuses to hook up your “ugly friend” with one of his good-looking friends” “Guys may be flirting around all day but before they go to sleep, they always think about the girl they truly care about.” I’m so furious that a male or a female would think this is what anyone is really thinking and if you are really thinking this, you need to grow the f**k up. Not all women can cook or want to cook or really give a f**k if you think cooking makes them attractive. Also, guys should not be flirting around all day if they have a girlfriend. Just because they go home at night and think about you doesn’t mean s**t. Especially since if the girl was “flirting around” all day, the guy would be f**king pissed. This article needs to rot in the depths of s**t, delusional writing. It’s time we move on from this archaic bulls**t, don’t you think?

    • This article is called “49 Things Guys Wish Girls Knew”. Not “49 Politically Correct Things Feminists Want Men to Think”. If girls actually knew what went on in guys’ brains, they would be horrified. That being said, this article was actually pretty juvenile. I’m guessing whoever wrote this watches way too much TV and does not have enough real life experience. Not all men are dumb, immature, lazy brutes who have a hidden soft side if you look deep enough, aka Homer Simpson, Fred Flintsone, Peter Griffin, Ray Romano, Doug Heffernan, or any other iconic “TV Guy” out there. In real life, men are a lot more complex than that.

  5. I don’t care if a girl works out. Working out is f**king stupid anyways. Go outside. Go hiking. Go ride a bike. Just be active and you’ll never have to set foot in a gym. The gym is for vain people who care more about how other people see them than how they feel. Video games and football are a waste of time, novels are not. I don’t care if my gf talks to other guys because I’m not a jealous tool. So it’s cool for guys eyes to wander, but it’s not alright for a girl to talk to males?

    Pretty sure this was written by a twelve year old guy.

  6. LOL this made me laugh a lot is true, but its so general im going to guess this applies to more of the general population. As we all know this article would have to be somthing like 200 things guys wish girls knew, to cover the majority of world. Not every guy is the same but, I really hope no one takes this advice because a lot of it could ending up hurting your relationship

  7. Of course it isn’t 100% the accurate or doesn’t apply 100% of men …. but if you polled 20 men I guarantee the majority of them will agree with the majority of this list. Ladies you have no idea how a man’s mind works. Who you see is who we present to you because most woman can’t handle the raw truth about us. No matter how much we love our woman we don’t wanna hear about anything while the game is on, and even if we can cook we love and prefer for her to serve us. And we lie and keep things like porn etc away because we don’t want to hurt our woman, we only want to protect her…even when she begs for the truth our instinct is to lie to protect (and that applies to everything from cheating to finances to porn). And until you ladies start listening to post like this before you berate them, you’ll never get a man for yourself…you’ll always be sharing him

    • you lie because you don’t want to deal with the aftermath, not because you want to protect her. sounds like women need to be protected from YOU.

  8. I honestly never comment on posts, but this article is so rediculous I struggled to read past point 14 or 15. I find it hard to believe that whomever this was written by is over the age of 17 or has ever been in an actual long-term and meaningful relationship. Most of these points clearly are living up to gender stereotypes. People in heartfelt and truly loving relationships don’t dwell on if you’re “operating the remote” or cooking meals, it’s the matter of doing something nice and caring for your partner.

  9. Absolutely ridiculous. Men are not cookie cutter shapes, they are not replicas and they have different wants, needs, feelings, and opinions. This article should not be “49 things guys which girls knew” it should be “49 things i want girls to know because i want them to cater to what i want in a relationship”. This does not apply to all men and no woman should hold herself to these sub-par relationship standards. Ladies, no matter what some online article says, “the game is on” is not an excuse for anything. period. thats not “haha oh he’s just being a guy” thats a shitty human being ignoring another person because Kobe has a .383 Free Throw percentage, and a grown ass man should be help accountable for his actions. This article calls for a more submissive female partner in general, and its obvious whoever wrote this prefers the man to be the more dominant partner in the relationship, and thats not how every relationship works.


    this article doesn’t apply to everyone and not everyone should abide by it.

  10. I usually don’t reply, but just because there are so many negative comments on this article I’d like to thank the writer for a cool and interesting read. Not EVERY point has to relate to you, but most of them are funny because they’re true. This is not stereotypical or misogynistic at all. It’s the truth…. People go crazy and twist words to make this seem like a terrible list. If you don’t like it go live your negative life on your own…

    Thanks again!

    – A guy who wishes people didn’t over-analize every little thing… Live a little. One love.

    • i highly doubt you would be saying the same thing if you were a girl reading this and taking it as advice. its degrading, and im not over analyzing anything, i’m simply reading these CLEARLY (not) well thought out statements generalizing the male gender which are at the same time denying women any say of their own. im not even a feminist and i thought this list was ridiculous. in fact its so ridiculous this is like my third time commenting

      – a girl who wishes people weren’t so ignorant, and could try to see things from a different point of view

  11. I know a lot of guys the majority of these apply to!!

    They’re all in their mid to late 40’s and have at least one divorce. I used to see them at the bar daily. Glad I chose to use them as an example of what NOT to do in a relationship.
