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

We strive for sexual attention, but when it's presented to us, we miss it. We have a dong and a brain, but not enough blood to power both at the same time.

It's not necessarily a guy thing. I'd offer a shower because you're dirty, and it wouldn't mean I wanted anything else. I think the whole concept of "hinting" is silly, and definitely can contribute to lots of misunderstandings.... if you want it, just say it, or show it with actions that couldn't possibly mean anything else.

I know, I used to have almost only guy friends. One of them came up to me one night 'yeah so *girl* got completely undressed next to me last night. Do you think that meant something?

Hahaha, that's me. A few years ago, I went out with this girl I've seen around my workplace. We had a great date, food, drinks, good conversation and then I saw her home around midnight. At her door, she asked if I want to come for a cup of coffee and I said I had a get home as I have work the next day(!) She never went out with me again and one day a few months later, the realisation of how stupid I was hit me like a freight train. Doh!

My girlfriend once sent me a text saying saying "really" missed me. Where as she normally says she misses me. Apparently I'm an idiot for not knowing that meant she wanted sex. I'm like "well you could put a eggplant emoji or something. Jeez"

I hear this sort of thing from dudes pretty frequently! I'm guessing it probably has the same thing to do with the whole "tell us directly" idea.

Hey Mathias, wtf. Like we aren't told not to be too forward or you'll all think we're sluts or something. Please. Or because one guy was an asshole you're hesitant in other encounters. Just like not all guys aren't asshole not all girls are bitches. Don't be so judgy

Men not getting the signals is nothing natural, it's something they learn while growing up. Being told all the time not do do anything that could make a girl uncomfortable, radical feminists also claiming men have to ask for consent before even approaching don't help there neither. So more and more men are afraid to approach women while at the same time more and more women suffer from not finding men who act like a man anymore. Good thing is: one can re-learn to read the signals and respond in a way that is appropriate :)

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.
