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

My husband has outright said he doesn't understand hints. I was a direct person to begin with; I became even more direct because of this.

Sometimes we give you a strong hint like that because otherwise you label it as nagging if you don't come to the conclusion yourself.

Victoria Rey Piuma

I don't think guys are alien. I think the last few centuries we've been taught to notice all the differences instead of the commonalities. Girls have been taught to shut up or guys don't want you, guys have been taught that women are delicate and frágil and wouldn't like their rough and tough ways.

I think people of both genders can definitely learn that a polite request is an all around better solution than a passive aggressive statement of the problem.

Whoever responded with nothing more than "OH" was pretty cold. I don't even know you and I wanted to yelp, "OMG! I'm glad you weren't hit by a car!" Wow.

..better yet, why not just shovel the driveway without being asked to do it..if you guys see something that needs doing please don't wait to be asked..just do it

Ann Jeppesen

There are different types of women. I would say it as a heads up and then ask if he could help me shovel the driveway. Would never expect my man to do things like this by himself. We would help each other.

*to her* Then shovel it if neck is on the line? What's the problem? All of my girlfriends have always been perfectly capable of doing things like that themselves, so when they've said things like that it's normally meant "F**k this snow, I will kill it with my bare hands. And a shovel." Same as I mean.

Kazó-Horváth Dóra

Nothing wrong with that reaction unless the woman is small, weak, old, injured. She could see it's hazardous and maybe ask if you would help her with clearing it.

this is a lazy thing. Any person can think to clean that up to avoid any harm to anybody in future . This is not gender thing.

Clara The Idiot

…I'd think that too. If you want the drive cleared, and you have time, do it yourself?!? If you don't then fair enough but don't make the request all cryptic

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!
