"Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus" (dating myself) was a really intriguing book to me when I was in college - I really didn't understand how differently men and women interpreted reality. What's one thing you wish the opposite sex knew about you? What's one thing YOU wish you had known a bit earlier about the opposite sex?

I wish I had know (back in high school) how easy it is to build up a young man with a kind word or recognition of his character. And, I wish I had known how intimidating to boys I was back then and had been a little more patient.

There she goes again. Another good thread. Actually, I think it safe to say the same thing today about my age group.

I wish I knew how much men truly value looks, and how they (tend to) think it's better to hide the truth if it'll hurt someone they care about :/

I wish men knew that it's better to not hide anything because oftentimes the act of hiding it or lying is more upsetting than whatever it was. I caught my dad telling my ex if he ever cheated on me to not tell me, just don't let it happen again. Neither understood why that upset me! If that were the case and he told me, we'd work through it- lie and I find out about it? Far FAR worse. Little things, too. Don't like my dinner? Tell me so I can make it better. Don't tell me you love it so I keep making it and eventually feel like an idiot when I find out you hate it...even if it's meant to spare feelings, being lied to and finding out about it feels cruel and heartbreaking (to me, anyhow)

Mary, thank you for posting! I think that while men value looks (as do women) they also value qualities such as confidence, kindness, goodness and a smiling face! (at least I hope so! :) ) Don't give up! I'd also say that I don't think all men act as this man did with you. There are some great guys out there! And you will find one who truly deserves you!

That girls still want to be pursued and courted. It isn't about the money, but about the time and the attention. Fickle men drive this girl bananas!

Okay, here's another one: I wish more men knew how attractive intelligence is (at least to me)! There is NOTHING that makes me more attracted to a man than to have a discussion with him and to find myself getting flustered or fired up because he is so smart or good at debating! lovestruck! Swoon! lovestruck!
