“We hold on to compliments for an absurdly long time. I was told I had pretty eyes once and for sometimes it was the only part of my face that I liked.” — Randomdude0671

2. They have feelings

“Honestly, that I have feelings and insecurities just as much as women. I constantly feel like I’m supposed to put my feelings and desires on the back burner because ‘man up.’ Sometimes sex isn’t what I want, I just want to snuggle and feel the emotional connection of someone who respects that I can be insecure or anxious sometimes.” — StrikerPost

3. Men cry alone

“Sometimes we get overwhelmed by life and just cry, where nobody can see us. That can be in a room we are in by ourselves with the door closed, to a silent car ride home, or even the shower.” — KentuckyFriedEel

4. Post-coital brain blank

“After ejaculation, our brain just resets. I have been in a situation, where I ‘did the thing’ and after saw that there was a fire alarm in the roof. I thought that the thing was interesting and started thinking, how the apparatus works. Thinking about: if there is uranium inside, what could I do with it, how it works, how much smoke it needs to sound the alarm, have I tested it etc. All this within 15 secs, same time my fiancee cuddling me.” — surruri

5. Some men are cautious

“I will intentionally slow down or change my path if I’ve been walking behind the same woman for too long. That’s how worried I am about coming off as a creep. I suspect I’m not the only guy who does this.” — matt_sheiman

6. Giving lovers

“We do really care that you finish. For me that’s important anyways.” — michaelscott1776
