It is not easy to know what guys are thinking. You may find it hard to understand them no matter what you do. You have to be willing to do what you can to make this worth your while. You want to into any relationship better understand men and all that they do and why they do it. This is going to be something that is worth your time because you will be closer to getting to know the mystery behind men and why it is so important. 1. Guys like to keep their feelings to themselves. This is something that will drive a girl crazy. She wants to know he is thinking so that she can better understand him and all that he is. It is not a good feeling when a guy shuts out his emotions and does not talk about what he is really feeling inside. This can be a very hard thing to deal with in a relationship and woman can get frustrated fast. 2. Do not let a man use his powers to change your mind. This is a very mysterious power that a man can have over a woman. They can make you feel one-way so that you change your mind about something that you want or need. This is not acceptable, but how do they do it? We as women need to stand up for who we are and let them know that they cannot make us change our mind and that we have the right to do what we feel we should. This will take care of the power trip that they think they have to be on. 3. Why don't men like to communicate? This is a very good question. Most women like to talk to their man and get a feeling of what is going on in their work and their other personal life. This is very normal and most men have a hard time opening up to their woman about what is going on. It is hard for them to sit down and talk about things that happen in their day. For most women they will let this go, but some like to push the issue and find out as much as they can until the man finally gives in or stops talking about it all together. 4. Men like to be alone. This is true for some men. They want to be by themselves or go out with their friends but do not give us as women a reason. This can be very frustrating because you are not sure what is going on and why the man is not home with you. Sometimes we just have to let the man have their space and give them the room to breath that they need. This is not unusual for most men that like to do things on their own without their girlfriend or wife hanging around. 5. The strong connection to their mom. This is something that can be confusing to us. Many men have a very strong bond with their mother. For some women they can appreciate this and even think that it is cute. However there are some that think it is abnormal and very mysterious. We have to appreciate the bond that is there between a man and his mother. This is something that should not be messed with and women have to let it go no matter what kind of problem it causes with the relationship. 6. Why do men forget birthdays and anniversaries? This has been going on for a long time. It is not all men but most of them. They have a short-term memory when it comes to these special dates. We should not over expect anything and be patient. There is no reason to get all worked up over their terrible memory. Just remind them and make sure that they give you a great present that you will love! 7. Men are not great housekeepers and this is no secret. However, we should not get on them every chance we get about this problem. We have to let them be who they are and just accept it. It is not their fault that they forget to pick up their socks or put their towels in the hamper. This is just something that we have to accept, but we may try and change their behavior and get them to finally pick up after themselves and help us around the house.
