I can't even remember if I've replied to this thread before, but...

Women aren't any more complicated than men; the idea that they are is a myth perpetuated by dudes who have difficulty communicating with women and can't admit that it's at least partially their fault.


Well, that in itself is admitting that, without learning something and changing their mindset, guys are not able to communicate with/understand women = women ARE complicated, TO men. Of course they look simpler to fellow women. I guess something similar would happen in reverse, if our one and only driving force was not simply... y'know ...

Personally, I think I understand women - sort of - mostly because I have lots of friends who are girls, and in fact I often relate better with girls than guys. Said this, my current girlfriend is the only one I've ever been linked with in a sentimental (and reciprocated) way, and by the looks of it she might as well be for the rest of my life (this is dangerous terrain I'm treading onto now though . Also there's a very Peter-Pan-ish part of me who is rather scared of me being actually saying - well, writing - this out loud).

In general, I'd say that what makes women more 'complicated' to us guys is that on average they act less on impulse, and are in general both more rational and less driven by ambition. Not to say that there are not ambitious girls, or unambitious guys! But for example, in my job (SCIENCE!), guys are the ones who will get excited more often over their job, and are more likely to talk about it outside the lab as well. Girls often divide themselves between multiple activities, can handle better their personal life and keep it separated from work, and in general, even when they do love their job (and most of them do), they are less blatant about it. To some of us men, this can look like a lack of drive. I think something similar applies to sentimental life - we are more likely to be more straightforward and think that subtlety is wasted time, so we can't read through girls very easily. On the other hand, girls are often scared by guys who are too direct in their approaches - while as a man, I can tell that that is probably just earnestness, and that smooth talkers are the ones who are more likely to be actually only going after The Prize, and nothing else.

Yeah, people is complicated. Wish I had understood as much when I was in high school.

I wasn't saying that women aren't complicated, just that they aren't more complicated than men. Men can be pretty complicated too. In fact, your post is a great example of that; for instance, you clearly have some complex thoughts about your relationship with your girlfriend. I find the fact that men constantly sell themselves short by saying that all they think about it sex etc. a little depressing, especially since the average woman thinks about/wants sex only a little less than the average man, it's just that we're societally conditioned not to express it. So, if men are simple because they have a sex drive, so are women.



Anyway, my post was more of a dig at the guys who constantly use 'Women are complicated!!!' as an excuse for their own failings more than anything; because yeah, sometimes it's hard to read other people, but that's a unisex issue and it doesn't often invalidate whatever the other person's problem was.

We're much more emotional... liking people is like an extremely annoying emotional battle and it's really annoying, trust me.

In truth Women are not that complicated its actually us guys that dont take their feelings into our view but instead many guys dont bother to care about their feelings, but women can sometimes be complicated since we guys are so simple minded and what not. that is why we MEN in truth i love women since i cannot live without love from them or their feelings. In all it is their feelings that make men confused that make then complicated, and that we need to take their feelings more serious and when one does that they start feelings alive.

though i say that but every women is different from others

I feel as if this is just another "why do nice guys finish last" kind of topic.



And to answer the real topic of this thread, is that women aren't complicated. You just need to understand us better, lol.
Actually I don't know.

~_~ I would respond the same way to a "Why are men so complicated?" thread.
Posted 8/4/13
Because that the way they like it. Makes for more drama.
