17 Guys reveal what they wish women knew about being a man

It seems to be a long-running joke amongst humanity that men will never understand women and that women don't get men - and to some extent, it's probably true.

As a woman, I don't really know a whole lot about being a guy. I can imagine it's probably a pain in the butt to have to keep your beard neat all the time, and I have no desire to find out what it feels like to receive a kick in the balls - but I have no real way of finding those things out first-hand.

Thankfully, though, there are some things that can be expressed in words and I'm sure us non-dudes will be glad to hear about them. Other things, however, clearly a need a bit more working out between the genders...

It sounds like there's a lot of stuff that men deal with on their own, and maybe if more women knew about it, the issues would be resolved a lot quicker. Communication is always key - so guys, if you've got something you want to say, we're here to listen.
