This is a continuation of Forget The Men. Pick A Guy. This is the list of what men are like.
Men tend to tell you what to do. Most of them are control freaks. This is both good and bad.
They check your tires before your big trip.
They say, “Call me when you get there” because they want to make sure you got there safe.
A man remembers to tell you the doctor’s office called.
Men won’t go into therapy to better understand their crazy selves.
A man takes revenge. You would never want to hurt his woman nor his children.
Men assume guys are boys who haven’t manned up yet.
Men don’t want to talk to women about their feelings of inadequacy.
Men have keys. They have the codes to alarms.
And I wanna add:
A man is often quiet that you wonder what goes on in his head and if he ever listens to you. (He does, unless you’re nagging him then he just shuts down.)
A man usually is absorbed in his work and chores. You would not want to interrupt him when he’s working.
A man rarely talks about his feelings. Sometimes never. But his silence speaks volumes, and you can see in his eyes the answers you are looking for. (Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic.)
A man rarely shows affection in public. No hugging and kissing in grocery aisles. But he wraps his arms around you when you sleep.
Most men dress horribly, at best, neutral like jeans and sneakers or perpetually in boring shirt and dress shoes.
A man will not watch The Notebook with you. He likes The Fast and the Furious. (Totally fine by me.)
Jon Hamm and Armie Hammer are men.
