Dating and Relationship Advice – 11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

“Number 1 is my favorite! Astounding!”

Here are many facts about men that statistics don’t tell us. On average, women live longer than men all over the world, men spend about a year of their lives looking at women, and they lie twice as often as women. In this post I figured out what is true and what is false.


11. Men see nightmares as disasters.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

Death, health issues, and personal threats are common topics of nightmares for everyone. But scientists from the University of Montreal conducted a study of more than 10,000 dreams and established that there are some differences between what men and women most often see in their nightmares.

Men wake up from nightmares in which they see large-scale disasters, floods, earthquakes, and wars with a feeling of horror. Interpersonal conflicts in nightmares occur in women’s dreams twice as often as in men’s.


10. Men bend over to pick up an object.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

Have you ever noticed that men pick up a fallen object by bending over it while women squat? Of course, not everyone does it this way, but this behavior is typical for most people.

Perhaps this is because women often wear uncomfortable clothes (short or tight), which means they have to squat. Men are less likely to be restrained by clothing, so they can easily bend over.


9. Men like women with a healthy weight.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

Blanca Ortega-Roldán Oliva from the University of Granada proved in her research that men prefer slim women who look healthy. We don’t mean those who don’t cough or have a fever but those whose weight looks healthy.

This means that men are attracted not by some mythical ideal of beauty or girls of exclusively model appearance who weigh the same as a feather but by women whose weight and growth are correlated normally.


8. Men are trying to attract the attention of a girl if they keep their thumbs on their belt.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

When a man wants to show a woman that he is interested in her, he involuntarily takes a pose that demonstrates that he is courageous and strong. Usually, a man holds his thumbs hooked to the belt of his pants.

A similar ritual appeared in ancient times when there were no belts or pants in existence. Males trying to win a female pointedly gestured to their crotch. Nowadays, such a gesture would be indecent, but we still have its echoes: when a guy holds his hands on the belt, his hands still point to his crotch.


7. Men prefer compliments from other men.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

There is an opinion that men accept compliments from the opposite sex with pleasure. But, in fact, they are more pleased with compliments from men. And sexual orientation does not matter here.

Robert Herbert from Binghamton University proved that people accept compliments “smoothly” and give thanks for them only in 30% of the time. And in the case of a man receiving a compliment from another man, it will likely be perceived as something pleasant and increase his self-esteem.


6. Men are friends through their interests.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

Ronald E Riggio, PhD, wrote an article that analyzed the research on friendship among women and men. As a result, he came to the conclusion that friendship between men is mainly based on common interests. They prefer to play football, golf, tennis, or poker or watch the matches of their favorite team together with their friends.

Female friendship is mostly based on emotions and support. Women choose friends who are “emotionally united” with them.


5. Men eat twice as much when they are with women.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

It might seem strange but it is a fact: men eat more when they have lunch or dinner with a woman. For example, they eat 93% more pizza and 86% more salad than they would eat in the company of men.

Kevin Kniffin, PhD, of Cornell University, came to this conclusion during his research. In his opinion, men do it in order to impress women. It might seem silly, but these are, once again, instincts.


4. Men prefer loose clothes with age.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

The clothes we wear affect the way we feel. Moreover, clothes affect the way surrounding people perceive us. That’s why a man in a suit feels more confident at a business meeting.

However, preferences in clothes change with age. For example, many young guys wear tight pants or shorts, although, perhaps, it is not so comfortable. With age, the desire to be fashionable is replaced by the desire to wear comfortable things. Therefore, men often switch to a looser cut of pants or shorts.


3. The lifestyle of a man largely depends on IQ.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

A group of scientists from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm showed in their study that the IQ level of a man often influences his way of life. In particular, whether he abuses alcohol or not. For this purpose, specialists studied the data of almost 50,000 Swedes born between 1949 and 1951.

According to the researchers, men with a lower IQ often drink too much. But it is outlined that this fact can be caused not only by IQ as men who abuse alcohol also often had emotional problems.

Nevertheless, scientists believe that a higher level of intelligence leads to a healthier lifestyle.


2. Men lie twice as often as women

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

The average man lies to his colleagues, boss, or partner 6 times a day while women only do it about 3 times a day. A survey carried out by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in 2009 before the release of the TV series Lie to Me helped to discover this fact.

It turned out that men lie twice as often as women, and the most common lying phrase is “It’s OK. I’m fine.”


1. Men stare at women for almost a year of their life.

11 True Facts About Men That They Hide From Others

A man spends about 43 minutes a day looking at 10 different women. This amounts to 259 hours (or almost 11 days) each year. As a result, between the ages of 18 and 50, men spend 11 months and 11 days admiring girls.

Women in their turn look at men only for 20 minutes a day. Between the ages of 18 and 50, they spend only 6 months on this activity.

Such figures were received by employees of Kodak Lens Vision Centers, which held a survey among 3,000 people.They also found out that the most suitable places to gaze at strangers of the opposite sex are supermarkets, pubs, and nightclubs.

Tales of Rock – John Lennon Was an Abusive Asshole Who Hit Women

The Beatles were all about love: They used the word 613 times in their songs, and like 300 of those are probably from John Lennon’s “All You Need Is Love” alone. In his solo career, Lennon continued singing about love, but also about peace — he even spent money putting up billboards with pro-peace messages in cities like London and New York.

Many of his fans treat Lennon like a modern-day Jesus: He preached peace and love, dressed like a disheveled hippie, died tragically young, and came back four years later with a posthumous album. Just like Jesus.

What He Was Really Like:

Lennon was a real asshole, especially to the people he was supposed to love the most. While he did write classic peace songs like “Imagine” and “Give Peace a Chance,” keep in mind that he also wrote “I Am the Walrus,” so he did not possess the soundest of minds. Lennon admitted in a Playboy interview that when he was younger, he basically went around punching women: “I was a hitter. I couldn’t express myself and I hit. I fought men and I hit women.”

His attitude didn’t change much when he hooked up with Yoko Ono and started shouting about peace. People gave Ono a lot of shit for following Lennon to band practices (a taboo in the music world known as “being a Yoko Ono”), but Ono only did that because Lennon demanded that she come out of fear she would leave him. He even made her go into the bathroom with him, afraid someone would snatch her away while she waited in the lobby. At the same time, he was openly unfaithful to her, just as he was to his first wife.

In the end, though, the biggest target of Lennon’s cruelty was his son Julian. Lennon was absent for most of Julian’s life, and the time he spent with him often led to yelling, insults, and very uncomfortable situations.

Lennon stated in an interview that Julian was unplanned and “came from a bottle of whiskey.” Lennon did admit his failings near the end of his life, but he added, “I will have to be a lot older before I can face in public how I treated women as a youngster.” Sadly, that didn’t happen, so he died an asshole.
