Guys are gross, perverted, single-minded and the list goes on and on. Sure, they have their moments, but most of the time, it’s not that bad. Guys always seem more centered and they know how to really let go and have fun. Wouldn’t it be nice to do the same? There are actually benefits to thinking like a guy, and you’d be surprised at how much better you feel. Don’t stop being a woman, but think like a guy more and you’ll find a bit more balance in your life. At the very least, it’ll be a fun shock to your man.
They worry less.
It’s not that guys don’t worry or they don’t take things seriously. They just focus on finding a solution instead of worrying the problem to death. Sometimes we get so overwhelmed by all that could go wrong that we can’t see the answer right in front of us. Guys take a more analytic approach to worry. If you can’t solve the problem, put it on the back burner until you can. It’s quite freeing.
Imperfect is good enough.
Raise your hand if you’re a perfectionist. Women tend to be obsessed with perfection and we get stressed out over every tiny detail. Guys just accept they’re not perfect and go on with life. To them, it’s not about perfection. It’s about doing the best you can and being happy with the results.
They’re usually up front.
You know how when someone asks if anything’s wrong, you either say “no” or “I’m fine”? Women aren’t exactly clear sometimes. We give hints or hope someone keeps pushing until we finally tell them what’s wrong or what we want. That’s one of the reasons guys have such a hard time understanding us. Sometimes it’s just better to be up front and tell it like it is. I know it’s not easy, but it feels pretty good to let it out.
Looks aren’t everything
. Some guys are obsessed with their looks, but most just hope their hair doesn’t fall out. They know looks change as you get older. Women desperately cling to youth. Looks aren’t the most important thing to a guy, generally speaking – they’re more concerned with their health, career, family, friends, hobbies, etc. Instead of spending hours looking in a mirror trying to look great, they comb through their hair, brush their teeth and head out. Stress makes you look older, so stop stressing out over your looks and you’ll look younger.
They don’t take everything personally.
I’ve found this to be one the best reasons to think like a guy. I admit I sometimes take every little comment, look or action as some type of personal attack. Women are wired to be a little more emotional, though I still think guys might have us beat (they’re just better at hiding it). They might get pissed temporarily, but they either let it go or do something about it. They know it doesn’t help them at all to let everything get to you. Sometimes things really aren’t about you.
It’s just a date.
Women often get angry when a guy isn’t ready to state his intentions on the first date. Even if a guy is looking for a woman to marry, he doesn’t get his hopes up until he’s gotten to know the woman. To him, it’s just a date. It’s not happily ever after in just a few hours. Guys take time to analyze the situation, see if the woman is a good fit and spend some time learning more about her. It’s hard to get hurt if you go in with realistic expectations that a date is just a date.
Details aren’t necessary.
I hate it when I tell someone I’m dating someone new. Do they really need to know the names of his last 10 girlfriends or what color socks he wears to bed? Guys just need to know the basics. They’re not going to pressure their friends for tons of details. They could care less about gossip that doesn’t directly pertain to them – it keeps life simpler. Thinking like a guy means letting go of so many details that usually leads to way too much information being shared.
Conflict isn’t a big deal.
Women hold grudges; guys hit something. It might sound barbaric, but in the end, guys get over it faster. They find a way to immediately deal with conflict. Whether it’s issues at work or a guy hitting on their girlfriend, they figure out what to do, take care of it and go on as if nothing happened. To them, conflict isn’t a big deal. It’s not something to dwell on for days or weeks. It’s why they’re so amazed at how long we hold a grudge. Deal with your issues and relax.
Who cares what others think?
While everyone cares to some degree, guys are far more nonchalant than women. It’s why they’re not so concerned with perfection or their looks. When you think like a guy, you get freedom in return. I’m so sick of hearing that women need to do this and do that because that’s what’s expected. The women who are known for making major changes in the world didn’t give a damn about what others thought. They did what they wanted and it paid off. Quit living based on others’ expectations and live for you.
They set realistic goals.
Want to know why we fail at so many diets? We expect results overnight. When we don’t lose 10 pounds in a day, we give up. Why do this to yourself? Guys tend to set more realistic goals. They know it’ll take time to lose weight or get the career of their dreams. They set goals and take it one step at a time. Women who do the same thing are always far more successful. They have an ultimate goal, but they think realistically about how to get there.
Try thinking like a guy for a few weeks. Enjoy the freedom. Just don’t forget you’re woman and try to adjust yourself in public.
