Well, after years of silence, the martians have finally beamed us some super-secret intelligence across the solar system (via Reddit), allowing women a glimpse into their complex (or not-so-complex, as the case may be) minds.
According to the men of the Internet, there are a few things that guys wish women knew about them, but were just too shy to bring up.
1. They know exactly who the “bad guys” are.
“You know how you go out with guys and figure out eventually weeks later they are assholes?
All us guys always know who all the assholes are. In high school it took us about 12 hours on the first day to catalogue the entire building full of them. Most of you gals never figured out who they are.
So ask your non-romantic male friends whom to avoid. We know.”
2. Sometimes, they really are thinking about nothing at all.
"When you ask us playfully 'What're you thinking about?' an honest and truthful answer can be 'Nothing'. Really, you don't know how shallow we are. We are not necessarily trying to hide anything."
3. If you think they've made a subtle jab at you, they probably haven't.
"If we were trying to be mean and hurt your feelings you would absolutely know it. Sometimes we say sh-t and it comes out wrong."
4. And they're not great on the receiving end of subtlety, either.
"Most guys are not good at picking up hints. Seriously. Many of us are awful at it."
