Does the Loch Ness Monster really exist? What happened to the crew of Mary Celeste? And what are guys up to when they're taking long showers? While we might never find out the answers to the first two mysteries, the latter has just been revealed. Together with a bunch of other men secrets most girls probably have no clue about. Recently, someone on reddit asked "What Are Some 'Guy Secrets' Girls Don't Know About?" and it got funnier and funnier with every answer. Amassing over 80K upvotes in just a few days, this post has become sort of like a diary of the 21st century man, and you couldn't make this stuff up.

"We are task orientated" absolutely true! we respond better with, "can you get me a blanket?" our brain process that faster than "I'm cold" statement.

This is definitely something everyone needs to remember, that guys can be mentally ill and have body issues and insecurities the same way everyone does and it's important to accept that and give them the space they need to express that

I think this might be a shy people problem, not a male problem... I'm a girl, but I'm not too outgoing right off the bat, so people assume I don't like being touched either, specially since I'm not confident enough to go for the hug myself.

Do you have someone who you wouldn't feel uncomfortable with? You could ask a friend. It has actually been proven that it lowers stress hormones and balances others. It should be like a daily doses, like fruit or vegetables. Maybe you could use the scientific reasons if you're too uncomfortable being that vulnerable.

I love hugs, cuddles, affection is the best LOVE there is, it's better then sex for me (despite my name, I am a man, well, last time I checked! LOL) It's genderless - You can hug a friend - You can even hug your pets! - And you know the best? It's totally FREE! :-) *HUG* to everyone who needs it.

I wish that would have a place where you can have a cappuccino and a hug with a "everything gonna be okay". Sometimes I really really need one hug. I can be running but when my kids hug me , I'm never the first breaking the hug. I just let the world stop.

Wow. Do you know anyone like a friend? Like three weeks ago I was worried about my mother's health and I asked a shopkeeper a couple blocks over. I need a huge favour. I kinda need a hug. Really ask. And if a grumpy person says no, don't get discouraged. Just say something like well well very neighbourly and walk to the next one.

I love hugs but my husband doesn’t. If I want one I have to tell him and hug him. Sometimes he doesn’t and it’s a very short hug. I fell in love with him before I knew him and I still love him. I asked him once if he really loved me and he said “I’m still here aren’t I?” Ahhh, what a romantic guy! 😂

Throw things to us. Like the TV remote or the car keys. Or a cup of coffee. It does, however, depend on our level of trust in the tosser's tossing skill.

Yeah. Sometimes they just happen. At very unfortunate times. As a teenager it would almost invariably happen while in church. And no, it had nothing to do with what was happening during the sermon!
