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 everyone does this, I'm a girl and I zone out sometimes thinking about something random and then I realize I've been staring at someone all that time

I don't even zone out. I check the LED sign to see what's the next station in the train, I get awkward eye-contact with random strangers sitting/standing next to me. ♥

That's not a gendered thing. I as a girl cannot tell you how many times I have had to apologize to someone for blankly staring at them and they waited for me to say something

Sometimes, I'm reading the words on a shirt and I suddenly realize that I'm staring at a woman's chest.

Yes! People should not wear shirts with words on them unless they're going to walk around holding them nice and straight, so we can read them quickly, without being obvious. Otherwise, take the "looks" without suspicion! Lol!

My husband's schizophrenic brother would stare at me and it was really unnerving because I know he wasn't thinking about medieval England. Guys, you have a physical advantage over us. Try not to stare like that, it makes us uncomfortable no matter what you're thinking.

I do stare because I find something or someone's features fascinating. I'm an artist. My daughter would always tell me to stop staring.

I once thought my bf was staring at a girls butt because he tries not to just stare at me while I eat & (because it makes me self conscious & he thinks its rude) will often "zone out" to look at something else usually behind me. That time their just happened to be a girl in a body con dress, I called him out for staring at her ass. He said why would I look at her when I he has me there & was just trying not to stare at me eating

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!
