Gender Differences

Found this piece online and thought this couldn't be more true. hehehehe. Btw, my thought are in blue. Enjoy

Women mature much faster than men (So so so true! Proven over and over!). Most 17-year-old females can function as adults. Most 17-year-old males are still trading baseball cards and giving each other wedgies after gym class. This is why high school romances rarely work.

To their credit, men do not decorate their penmanship. They just chicken-scratch. Women use scented, colored stationary and they dot their "i's" with circles and hearts. Women use ridiculously large loops in their "p's" and "g's". It is a royal pain to read a note from a woman. Even when she's dumping you, she'll put a smiley face at the end of the note.

A man has at most six items in his bathroom - a toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of Dial soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn. The average number of items in a typical woman's bathroom is 437. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.

A woman makes a list of things she needs and then goes to the store and buys these things. A man waits till the only items left in his fridge are half a lemon and something turning green. Then he goes grocery shopping. He buys everything that looks good. By the time a man reaches the checkout counter, his cart is packed tighter that the Clampett's car on Beverly Hillbillies. Of course, this will not stop him from going to the 10-items-or-less lane.

Going out:
When a man says he is ready to go out, it means he is ready to go out. When a woman says she is ready to go out, it means she will be ready to go out, as soon as she finds her other earring, finishes putting on her makeup...(Classic! Ask any guy in a relationship or is married)

When preparing for work, a woman will put on a Mondi wool suit, and then slip into Reebok sneakers. She wil carry her dress shoes in a plastic bag from Saks. When a woman gets to work, she will put on her dress shoes. Five minutes later, she will kick them off because her feet are under her desk. (I couldn't stop laughing when I read this..hehehehehehe). A man will wear one pair of shoes for the entire day.

Men are vain; they will check themselves out in the mirror. Women are ridiculous; they will check out their reflections in any shiny surface--mirrors, spoons, store windows, toasters, Joe Garagiola's head (checked out Joe Garagiola and found out he is bald, lol).

The Telephone:
Men see the telephone as a communications tool. They use the telephone to send short messages to other people. A woman can visit her girlfriend for two weeks, and upon returning home, she will call the same friend and they will talk for three hours.

If a woman is out driving and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings, she will stop at a gas station and ask for directions. Men consider this to be a sign of weakness. Men will never stop and ask for directions. Men will drive in a circle for hours, all the while saying things like, "Looks like I've found a new way to get there", and, "I know I'm in the neighborhood. I recognize that White Hen store".

Admitting Mistakes:
Women will sometimes admit making a mistake. The last man who admitted that he was wrong was Gen. George Custer. (checked him out too: Gen George Custer was was a United States Army cavalry commander, note- he was born in

Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and soccer games and romances and best friends and favorite foods and secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house. (This isn't always true, I know a number of fathers who act otherwise but I think moms are more gifted in this area)

Dressing up:
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the garbage answer the phone, read a book, get the mail. A man will dress up for: weddings, funerals.

Women do laundry every couple of days. A man will wear every article of clothing he owns, including his surgical pants that were hip about eight years ago, before he will do the laundry. When he is finally out of clothes, he will wear a dirty sweatshirt inside out, rent a U-Haul and take his mountain of clothes to the laundromat. Men always expect to meet beautiful women at the laundromat. This is a myth.

When reminiscing about weddings, women talk about "the ceremony". Men talk about "the bachelor party".


So do you agree with these differences or not? :->

The complete article can be found here


  1. hmmmmm... I agree with some of these but not all. I so disagree with the laundry part. The maturity part was not complete. Men catch up later and become more mature than women. :)

  2. lol.. like Tayo said, I agree with some but not all of these. Generally speaking, quite of number of these are accurate.

    Cool list though.

  3. @Tayo- I don't think men ever catch up with women when it comes to maturity. Prove it ! I want to see numbers, graphs, charts

    @Niyi I know, ehn, why would u agree with the list. Oya tell me which one you dont agree with now now. ;)

  4. Gender differences: studies have shown a difference between the behavior of men and women. Are these differe.

  5. GENDER variations in cigarette smoking routines may describe why females find it more difficult to stop than men, according to a new research.


I would love to know your thoughts :)
