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.

It's mainly because of the pressure put on men in general to always be outwardly strong and have a strong front at all times. We get to this point where we have to put this wall up around our emotions lest people actually know that we have "feelings" *gasp*. I'll be perfectly honest, once I came to the conclusion that this was complete BS and quit forgetting what other people's view on a males societal roles not only did my relationships improve but my life in general. It's nice to be able to come home after having a bad day and just be held, especially by someone that means something to you. Honestly it's my safety net as a medic when I've had a day filled with misery, my fiancé is my therapy.

Awww I like to switch it up. I like to be held, all safe and snuggly but I also like to hold my guy safe and close and snuggly. Kinda the same you take care of each other the rest of the time.

My boyfriend also complained last time he visited that he wants to be the little spoon, it was cute and I felt a little bad for not doing it more often. =')

My ex and I used to use this as a signal that he wasn't having a good day. He'd be all grumpy about something and I would ask if he needed to be the little spoon tonight. It was so endearing.

Especially when your hair is unruly (and whose isn't when they're sleeping?). It's hard to breathe through all those curls.

I love to spoon my man just as much as being spooned myself. Its about caring for each other. A good relationship is a partnership. We gather strength from each other, and actively nurture and care for one another. We are each other's respite from the world.

But how do you spoon someone much bigger than you? My most recent ex was 6'5" and a large dude, and my arms just wouldn't fit around him in the spooning position. It was just awkward.

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

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!
