#Mantastic: 15 Facts About Men That Will Blow Your Mind

We have all heard that women are especially hard to read, but have you ever really given a thought to how much you really know about men? Men, just like women, have a world of their own and they can be equally baffling, funny, disgusting, insane, and impressive—sometimes all at the same time! If you are interested in learning more, read on to learn 15 of the best facts about men that will blow your mind.

1. Unfaithful? You better be dumb!

This is more than just a stereotype; it has been proven by a scientific study. Unfaithful men who cheat on their doting girlfriends and wives have been statistically proven to have a lower IQ on average. So, if a guy has cheated you on and you have broken it off, you can smile because you know that things probably worked out for the best, at least for the sake of your intelligence!

2. Yes, men love to lie

Every time a guy compliments you or tells you that you are the best thing to have happened to him, I’d warn against trusting him completely. I do understand that not every guy lies all the time, but as I was doing research on men I stumbled across a particularly interesting fact: on average, men lie 6 times every day compared to the 3 times a day that women lie. So, that awesome hunk that told you that you made his day beautiful? Well, he might have said the same to several other girls before you…

3. The unshaven look?

A lot of women have said that they like men with an unshaven look because the stubble makes them look sexy. Conversely, there are other women who prefer that clean-shaven, immaculate look instead. Either way, men spend an average of nearly 6 months of their life shaving! Isn’t that a crazy amount of time? Poor guys who have spent so much time trying to achieve that completely shaven look only to have girls tell them that they rocked it with the stubble. So hard to please!

4. Great looks charm guys

While women are known to spend a lot of time fussing over manicures, pedicures, facial massages, and other physical grooming treatments, men are also very particular about outward appearances. It has been seen that a larger majority of guys choose their partners firstly on the basis of how they look. Similarly, men are also concerned about their own looks too. This really does mess up the notion that great men don’t just go for good looks, doesn’t it? It looks like, at the bottom of our heart, everyone cares about physical appearances, at least a bit!

5. Sweating? Tacky? We’re men!

One of the funny facts about men is that they tend to sweat twice as much as women. Since being stinky and sweaty is a complete turn-off, I suppose guys need to hit the shower twice as often as well! Looks like not everything is rosy about being a man – they come with their own share of problems too. Luckily, this problem can be easily prevented to the benefit of everyone involved. All the guys reading this, it’s simple: stock up on deodorant supplies, for the sake of your love life!

6. High heels? Yes they rocked it!

This is perhaps one of the most interesting facts about men that I am sharing here. I couldn’t believe it myself when I first read it, but men were actually the first to wear shoes with high heels. Women started wearing them later on and eventually made them their own. Can you even imagine your favorite crush in a pair of high heels? Does it make you giggle or is it turning you on?

7. Not every guy is a jerk

While there have been various incidents where men have lived up to their stereotype as jerks, this is one myth that definitely deserves to be broken. Plain and simple, I’ve come across many great guys and many nasty or gossipy girls; it all comes down to the choices you make about who you are associating yourself with. Every guy has his own individuality, just like you do.

8. Checking out girls? Yes please!

We have all probably seen a guy shamelessly ogle at a woman in public from time to time, but do you have any idea as to how many times an average guy spends on simply checking out women? According to recent research, men can spend an average of one whole year staring at women! No wonder we find a lot of guys creepy with those eyes scanning us up and down, seemingly all of the time!

9. I love you? The *Awww* fact

If you were looking for one of those facts about men that could make your heart melt, look no further. Did you now that men are much more likely to say ‘I love you’ first in a relationship? Now, this makes up for most of the flaws, doesn’t it? There was a part of me that always knew that men are softies at heart….

10. ADHD attacks men more often

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common problem that makes it hard for a person to focus, sit still, and generally control their impulses. Studies have shown that guys are a lot more likely to face these problems than their female counterparts. So, if you find a guy behaving a certain way—getting distracted in the middle of a conversation or refusing to sit still on a date night, for instance—don’t be too harsh on him. Sometimes, we need to get the facts right and realize that it is not always easy being a guy!

11. Lightning is attracted to men

As hard as it may be to believe, the fact remains that men are 5 times more likely to be hit by lightning than women. The exact reason behind this statistic is still unknown though. Maybe lightning is a lot more attracted to guys or perhaps men are likely to be in dangerous situations that make them more prone to be hit. We may never know…

12. Men can be hormonal too!

Most women grew up hearing stereotypes like, “is that your hormones talking?” and “is it that time of the month already?” All stereotypes aside, men too can be hormonal. Granted, hormones are a necessary part of the human body for both sexes, but when I say that men are also hormonal, I mean that they too can get spontaneously emotional and upset when their hormones are at their peak. So, while they may not menstruate or have estrogen pumping through their body, other hormones such as testosterone can still have a huge effect on their behavior!

13. Men commit more crime than women

Despite how stereotypical this may seem given what we see on the news, it has been shown that men actually do commit more crimes than women. Studies have shown that psychopathic men are much more likely to kill their spouse, so I have added this here to remind you to be sure who you are dating.

14. Men find it harder to deal with breakups

Yes, you read that correctly. Contrary to what most of us believe, men actually find it really hard to deal with breakups. Men don’t really share their feelings as easily as most women do, and this can cause pain to keep adding up. Ouch, the feels!

15. Men are as puzzling as women

Yes, one of the truest facts about men is that they are just like women: puzzling and hard to understand. They will break the same stereotypes which they make and set new trends when you least expect them to.

To the women reading, which one of these made you laugh really hard and which surprised you the most? To the men out there, do you have anything to add to this list? I would love to know your thoughts!

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
