random fact…

men can read smaller print than women.

women can hear better than men.

women can also smell better than men.

the reading smaller print thing… i dont get that one. cuz they sure cant see their socks on the floor 😕

women hearing better…mmm-hmmm. this one i completely get!

smelling better…i take this one two ways. 1- we have a stronger sense of smell. 2- we just smell better.

what are some differences you can share?

    YOUNG men seem to think that showers will make them melt away so they have to avoid them until someone tells them that their odor is offending.

    YOUNG women seem to think that if they need to change their clothes more than once in a day, that it always requires a second or third shower, because “duh” they need to re do thier hair for the new outfit..

    sooo if a house has both..are we saving water when the boy doesn’t shower, or losing water because the girl is always in it? or does it even out?

    I always think about things like this that really are not important.
    The man does not think about things like this, ever…

    From the world of science:

    “When it comes to keeping brains alive, it seems nature has deemed that females are more valuable then males. As reported in this weeks’ JBC (Journal of Biological Chemistry – 1/16/09), researchers found that nutrient deprivation of neurons produced sex-dependent effects. Male neurons more readily withered up and died, while female neurons did their best to conserve energy and stay alive.”

    Women can see subtle differences in hues that men can’t.

    Ex: orange-yellow to salmon to pink

    Women say men have selective hearing….Well women have selective interpretation.

    Men will say exactly what they mean and women will hear something completely different.

    Trust the man that grew up with 7 sisters… 😀 😉

    Oh my…so much to say, so little uplifting to the male species. Let me just say this – I cannot for the life of me understand how my husband can see a car out of the corner of his eye and tell me make, model, year, color, yada yada yada. But ask him to look around the house – the house right in front of his eyes where he lives every day of his life – and just FIGURE OUT what needs to be done before our guests arrive in T-15 minutes…and yeah, totally blind. 😛

    My husband is terrible at finding things. Where is … he asks as he just looks around from wherever he is standing. Eventually I give up and look for one minute and find it.

    I am always finding the negative and nagging him. He only sees the good.

    it takes longer to spell ‘women’ than it is to spell ‘men’

    Men think ‘conversation’ is allowing the sound to go in their ears. Women think conversation actually requires an intelligent response.

    I’m really not trying to hate on men. But this does seem to be a common denominator. I even think most men would agree. 🙂

    Keith gave me a great one last night: Leftover food has meaning for women. LOL. I didni’t know either, until he told me. I went out to eat with my best friend from high school after not seeing her (unless you count Wal-Mart) for years. I brought home leftovers and Keith asked for a bite. When I told him he could have them all, he refused, saying,

    “Oh, no. I can’t eat them.”

    I insisted.

    He said, “Leftovers for women are different than they are for men. You will eat them and think about the time you had with Nichole. It will be special for you. I can’t eat your leftovers.”

    And he’s straight! Can you believe it? How in the WORLD did he get that? Surely some woman told him. Anyway, he passed up some GOOD steak fajita. What a sweetheart!

    We just started the Fireproof Your Marriage study with our small group. Great stuff.

    The first lesson was based on the difference between guys and gals.

    It went something like this: Guys = respect; Gals = love

    Then centered around the scripture (Eph. 5:25, 33 paraphrased) that says…

    Husband love your wife, lay down your life for her like Christ did for the Church.

    (skip a few verses)

    Wife respect your husband.

    In some Christian subcultures there exists this idea that respect (or submit) is something wives should just naturally do. But to me it seems that a husband earns the respect (and submission) of a wife if he sacrifices for her and puts her first (by truly loving her).

    What I’ve been taking from this study: Men were created with a desire to be respected, and wome were created with a desire to be loved…

    It’s not that either only want the one. Sure, we all need love and respect, but it seems that men are more wired to desire respect and women more wired to desire love.

    I guess the big question then, is how do we show respect and/or love to the opposite gender?

    Emerson Eggerich has a book devoted almost totally to this concept. It was very eye-opening to me to hear all the different ways love and respect affect our lives, he’s got some amazing illustrations of the “crazy spiral” that enable both genders to gain insight into how to truly speak your spouses “language”
