Top 10 Male Traits Which Make Women Say “Why?”

otaku-figure-collection.jpg

When 8,500 Japanese women were asked what it is they found inexplicable about male behaviour, they came up with a list which might well be universal…

The results:

1. They spit on the sidewalk

2. They buy the stupidest of things

3. They tell barefaced lies

4. They contact you even after you break up with them

5. They think women who act like children are “cute”

6. They refuse to retrace their steps when they go the wrong way

7. They brag about health problems

8. They don’t throw out the rubbish in their rooms

9. They often respond absentmindedly

10. They drink canned soda/coffee all the time

    If it's man-made, its man-unmakeable.

    If it's natural, we're human beings, we WILL unmake it.

    I don't spit on the sidewalk, I hate it when men do that, my mate used to do it all the time, disgusting.

    "They buy the stupidest of things"

    2. "They buy the stupidest of things"Thousand shoes and make-ups are more of a stupidity if you ask me.

    3. "They tell barefaced lies"
    Aplies to everyone.

    4. "They contact you even after you break up with them"
    Needs some sandwich. :V

    5. "They think women who act like children are “cute”"
    No shit. Children ARE cute.

    7. "They brag about health problems"
    Hah?

    8. "They don’t throw out the rubbish in their rooms"
    What is concidered rubbish for them?I say their room filled with shoes are more of a rubbish.

    9. "They often respond absentmindedly"
    Well of course. This only applies when responding to women talking non-stop.

    1. They spit on the sidewalk - I've never done that and I think its gross. :3

    2. They buy the stupidest of things - oh so my 30ft katana and golden hippo statue are stupid? Just kidding, actually I think that's something women do WAAAAAY more. ;)

    3. They tell barefaced lies - pff, don't be silly, no I don't... >_>

    4. They contact you even after you break up with them - I've never actually dated so I wouldn't know... =(

    5. They think women who act like children are “cute” - hmm, I do think that, but I'm a lolicon dammit!

    6. They refuse to retrace their steps when they go the wrong way - I don't mind that at all.

    7. They brag about health problems - DUDE! Check out this scar! No but seriously, I don't brag about health issues and I don't know guys who do that. =/

    8. They don’t throw out the rubbish in their rooms - I'm a cleanliness freak, my rooms is PERFECTLY clean but I do know some really messy guys...

    9. They often respond absentmindedly - Well you're fat... hmm, I like yoghurt.

    10. They drink canned soda/coffee all the time - err, I don't drink coffee and I drink BOTTLED soda, there's a difference! =)

    1. They spit on the sidewalk
    There are times when you have this inexplicably foul taste in your mouth, like metal. Spitting the saliva does the job of getting rid of it.
    2. They buy the stupidest of things
    .... That's a little too general. What is it that they think is "stupid"?
    3. They tell barefaced lies
    Oh, please! Men and women tell them. You have to know how to twist the words to say something that isn't quite true without it being a lie, it's an art that men and women learn. Watch the politicians.
    4. They contact you even after you break up with them
    .... Girl, that probably is a stalker.
    5. They think women who act like children are “cute”
    Not quite. I find them annoying.
    6. They refuse to retrace their steps when they go the wrong way
    Again, only idiots do that. Unless there's an important and useful experience that you acquired because of that failure, there's no reason not to retrace them.
    7. They brag about health problems
    Because that's funny when talking with male friends.
    8. They don’t throw out the rubbish in their rooms
    That depends completely on who you are talking about. I don't because I'm lazy, but plenty of male friends clean their rooms.
    9. They often respond absentmindedly
    Who doesn't? It's not like people have the time to pay attention to every minute detail around.
    10. They drink canned soda/coffee all the time
    .... Okay, let's suppose that's true, which it isn't, so what? Are plastic bottles healthier? Is the taste that different? Probably the cans are cheaper than the bottles and they tend to be cleaner than tap water.

    and i never heard about #7...

    but anyway. this seems so negative, but thats just cuz those were women talking to women. if you would ask men about the same things, they would also come up with such "mean" stuff. LOL

    My response:
    And I'm trying to be more "Funny" than "Knuckle dragging barbaric ape" ok?

    1. Well, where DO you spit?
    2. Uh, due to modern laws we can't buy women from the slave market... Granted all those anime toys and excessive computer parts are mostly "Pointless Luxury" along with probably various swords and viking helments and rare occult books... OK, guilty. But, to the ladies; Well, you don't want to be slaves, but be nice to him and most men will be putting off lots of junk, even dear things, to buy you things, even without boasting about it or even telling you. Most will visibly cut back on the junk and when they find the one piece of "Junk" they like they'll be apologetic and try to help you get something to compensate.
    3. It should be obvious why even the most open and honest men lie to women... Watch "Liar Liar" it really puts that in perspective. And, really, there's an old joke about how a guy was talking in a bar and he said "And so she went with me to see my etchings and after I'd shown her the first five pieces, she got really mad and left and I don't know why..."
    4. Well, note #2, we miss that. If a woman is OUR woman, she is OUR woman! It's only bad its not that way, IMHO. If a man isn't following you, he doesn't love you.
    5. They ARE:-)
    6. Can't answer here, personally I'm almost never lost, even in new environments. Middle of woods, foreign countries, I find my way.
    7. Yeah, it's a "Macho" thing, showing how tough you are. Its a desperate attempt by the modern enslaved, de-masculated man to replace things like spear throwing and friendly fighting. Really, if I manage a place with a good backyard, I think I'll put up targets with either bows and arrows and/or spears and just let the guys go and toss 'em when they get bored.
    8. Guilty as charged:-) Frankly, what is woman for, besides...? No, really, a woman cleaning is a very sexy thing, not just for sex but for commanding affection. Again, if he's totally clean so you don't have to clean up, is he a faggot? Does he really love you? You see, letting you clean is an instinct, he opens up to you and shows in a subtle way some dependence on you.
    9. "uh, yeah honey I'll talk to JR about the mutilated blowup doll in his closet" during the middle of rush hour driving when you prattle this to him in the middle of a dozen other things... Beats "WTF!?!?!" and slamming on the brakes and being in a wreck...
    10. Soda and Coffee are life itself. I drink homemade espresso before bed so I can sleep.

    this list has no reason to exist,i mean,it's all true,but women want us to be that way,they NEED us to be THAT way...or else they won't be able to bitch on us,and they'll have to start bitting each others ass to get their bitching quota filled each weeks,and a week is SEVEN DAYS dammit!JUST COUNT!..hmm.

    looks at those who don't have any man to bitch on,how are they?....RATIONAL!
    they actually agree with the thing men find annoying with women these days!!BECAUSE THEY ARE!! THEY'RE FEMALE NO MOAR! è_é!!!

    AND DO WE WANT THAT?!HUH?!

    .....hell yes.

    ....but more seriously:girls saying "little dick" to other on teh internetz seriously need to stop taking their didlo as a reference for genuine male anatomy.
    REAL ones are bigger dear.

    same apply if you're a guy is suppose...replace didlo by "your partner's dick" in that case :p (yes,meaning you're gay)

    1. They spit on the sidewalk

    Thats what sidewalks are for. If you don't like it, move to Singapore ;). (Google Singapore spit)

    2. They buy the stupidest of things

    Yes, buying extra shoes and clothes to impress men who'd rather see you naked is much better than buying a game you can enjoy with friends for countless hours, or a tool you could (theoretically!) use for something USEFUL.... someday.... when you get around to it <_<.

    3. They tell barefaced lies

    Because we're terrified of the drama that will erupt when you can't handle the truth.

    4. They contact you even after you break up with them

    What happened to just "being friends" ;)? Besides, isn't it a woman's perogative to change her mind? You never know...

    5. They think women who act like children are “cute”

    They are ;). Attractive, maybe not, but cute, sure...

    6. They refuse to retrace their steps when they go the wrong way

    That feels like losing! The manly hunter must always be ready to think on his feet- to come up with a game plan on the fly! All the better if you have a nearby female to give you sighs of encouragement!

    7. They brag about health problems

    We're badass like that. Its better than secretly throwing up in the bathroom until you end up in the hospital.

    8. They don’t throw out the rubbish in their rooms

    Why bother? It does get thrown out eventually. Why do we have to live by your schedule?

    9. They often respond absentmindedly

    When you say something that you haven't said 100 times before, WITHOUT inserting it into an hour long monologue about something no (straight) man on Earth could possibly care about, then you'll get our full attention.

    Try this: Walk up to a man. Say "Pizza". See how his eyes immediately dart up from whatever he was doing? Now say "blowjob."

    See that?

    Now say "Take out the trash."

    ... yeah.

    10. They drink canned soda/coffee all the time

    Because it tastes good and/or gives us a bit of energy to deal with all the damn yakking.

    10. They drink canned soda/coffee all the time

    1. Not all men do this. Get it through your thick skulls.

    2. What you call 'stupid' we call investments.... which unlike you will pay out better in the future.

    3. I can't explain this one. Not all guys lie though, I do know this much. Maybe you're too gullible?

    4. Those guys are more than likely looking for pussy.... which they might get if you're as gullible as you seem.

    5. Childish women are *not* cute... to me at least.

    6. Arguing the reasons why we guys do things the way we do, is kind of like trying to argue politics with a brick wall: it's painfully obvious to anyone looking that you're standing in front of a wall, yet you insist on jabbering away at the same lame points. In other words, male logic and female logic will never mix well. Next!

    7. I don't. I live in a world of enough self-pity for the health problems I do have..... more pity is not welcome. Next!

    8. Much like packrats, we guys collect stuff. Because it just might have a use somewhere down the line... or it has sentimental value. Like used panties. Or something equally disturbing. Next!

    9. Most guys are absentminded by nature! >< I have lousy short-term memory, for some ungodly reason, and it just gets worse the older you get. Encroaching senility?! Someone just do me a favor and shoot me in the fucking head, please? T_T. I'll waive all criminal negligence over this. The lawsuit by my next-of-kin I can't help you with, sorry.

    Next!

    10. For health reasons, as listed above, I do not drink canned anything. I used to, but much like our celebrated Springtimes of Youth, those days ain't coming back ever again.

    There... satisfied?!? If not, then just go away. I have eroge to play, and much baby Spackle to make.

    #3 : they tell barefaced lies.

    That is very true, and here is why : you, as a woman have your brain mounted BACKWARDS.
    So when we tell you lies, like "yes, I slept at her place, but I'm not cheating on you", you actually believe us.

    Whereas, when we say the goddam truth, you just don't. Like "no, you're not fat", "no you're not too old", "yes, you're beautiful" or "no I'm not cheating on you and you should fucking know because when I'm not working MY ASS OFF, I SPEND ALL MY TIME WITH YOU !".

    See ? we lie because we've got bored trying to prove you we were not lying when actually we were not.

    1. They spit on the sidewalk
    Well I don't - unless it's for a good reason.

    2. They buy the stupidest of things
    Women buy the stupidest things too, they just buy different stupid things.
    "You spent $250 on a hand-blown glass snowflake wind chime!? It's gonna be blown to pieces the first gust of wind that catches it."

    3. They tell barefaced lies
    We totally do not!

    4. They contact you even after you break up with them
    Probably because we still love you and you dumped us, you heartless bitch! *sob*

    5. They think women who act like children are “cute”
    Kids are cute, ergo women who act like children are cute. We just like women who are innocent, sweet and pure. Children and women who act like children both activate our protector instincts.

    6. They refuse to retrace their steps when they go the wrong way
    That's because we never go the wrong way, we just blaze a new path. Sometimes it's a very long, very out of the way path - but hey, life's an adventure, right?

    7. They brag about health problems
    Men are competitive by nature and we compete with each other at everything, even our problems.
    "Oh, you think that's bad? That aint nothin'! lemme tell ya 'bout MY problems!"
    Besides, why complain about your problems when you can put a positive spin on it and wear it like a badge of honor?

    8. They don’t throw out the rubbish in their rooms
    Because you never know when you might need one of those things! Besides, it's not rubbish, it's all perfectly good stuff!
    "This thing? Nah, it's only a little broken. It just needs a li'l glue is all an it'll be good as new! And that T-shirt - it has some of that sedimental value and stuff. Reggie Jackson once vomited on it. True story! So that's no ordinary stain, it's more like a one of a kind autograph."
