5 Myths About Men

Tuesday, 07 Dec 2010 04:17 PM

Men have often been an intriguing and infuriating species for women. While many myths about men have evolved from the behavior of single men or men’s fitness magazines, others have arisen from women dating or marrying men. Fortunately, many of these myths actually hold very little truth.
Some of the most popular myths associated with men are:
Men are not emotional
This is one of the biggest myths faced by men across the globe. However, research has proven that men are as emotional as women. They might not be as expressive with their emotions as women usually are. However, this does not mean that men don’t experience strong emotions or are not sensitive enough.
Men think about sex all the time
This is another myth about men. Though men think about sex more than women do, they don't think about sex all the time. Studies have shown that only 54% of men think about sex every day. Around 43% think of sex once or twice in a week, and the remaining think about sex once in a month. So, the popular myth about men thinking of sex all the time is not true.
Men like women with perfect bodies
Most women feel that men love perfect bodies. This has resulted in many women panicking and stressing over their body shape. Fortunately, this is not true. Most men love females who have a good sense of humor and a strong personality; this does not necessarily mean that they have an hour-glass figure. Ask men for the truth and you’ll find that they are intelligent enough to evaluate women beyond their physical attributes.
Men don’t like foreplay
This is another myth about men. Though sometimes men do indulge in quickies, most men like foreplay just as much as the women.
Men hate to commit
As far as their relationships with women are concerned, it is largely perceived that single men hate to commit. Ask men and it will become clear that this myth harms relationships since men want companionship in the same way as women. Men are as committed and faithful as women in any relationship. To say that only women have the need to feel emotionally secure would be a gross distortion of the true feelings of men.
