HotWingAgenda: FunkOut: A lot of people read other people's emotions wrong because they project their own ideas onto that person. They assume the other person is going to have emotions much like theirs. Kind of a crapshoot to be doing that. "I think you're angry because you're sitting there like that and doing this and I think you're angry because of this certain thing." And you're like "First, I'm not angry and second, I have no idea what you're talking about. I was thinking I am almost out of raspberry jam."If I had a dollar for every time a friend thought I was doing rocket science in my head because of my facial expression.. when I was actually trying to decide whether to wake up early the next day to grab some donuts...
czei: Women will spend a huge amount of money and mental effort thinking about hairstyles. They will agonize of a small change in the shade of a highlight, and the magnitude of this change in their mind is huge, but in reality doesn't make a darn bit of difference. The chances of a man noticing such a change is very small, and quite unreasonable.
PanicMan: I can read women just fine. If you can't, that's your problem not hers.
Benevolent Misanthrope: I do believe men truly do love women. And hate them. I've never "gotten" the relationship.

Mentat: The Man:"Yes Dear" = "I know where this is going. There is literally nothing I can say or do to win. If I counter your emotional bullshiat with logic, you'll say I'm talking down to you. If I lose my temper, you'll say I'm bullying you. If I don't do anything, you'll say I'm emotionally crippled. So I'm just going to say and do the absolute bare minimum in the hopes that you'll stomp off for a few hours so I can have some peace. When you've decided I've been punished enough, you'll 'forgive' me for whatever it is I did and I'll pretend like you're right and then we'll start the entire thing over again in three days when I make an off-hand comment suggesting I'm not looking forward to your mother's visit or when I get a slight boner when you complain about your hot sister wasting $5000 on a boob job. I mean, let's be honest. We both know I saw her in her underwear last year when I accidentally walked in on her changing clothes in our bedroom and we both know that she engineered that little fiasco in order to piss you off because she loves to push your buttons. Besides, what the fark do you care what she does with her money? What else is she going to do with it? She's a farking 'social media strategist'. What the hell does that even mean? Oh right, it means 'OMG I'm 35 years old and unemployed because the powers that be think I'm a technological dinosaur! Can I move in with you?' And of course you'll say yes and you'll be glaring at me the whole time, but I can promise you I won't want to fark that at 35. I've seen pictures of your mother at 22 and 35 and I can see where this is going. Social media strategist my ass. I worked at a god damn dotcom. I helped invent the streaming video algorithm that YouTube uses, and yet now I have to listen to some punk ass 21 year old tell me that I don't understand technology? Let's see what Johnny McShiatsALot can do the next time the servers go down and I decide to call in sick. Have fun in the cloud asshole. ...
DemonEater: Dion Fortune: This study is not something to readily draw conclusions from though. All they did was look at static, disembodied pictures of eyeballs. Perhaps men judge women's emotions more from other parts of their face or body.Men look at women's eyes???
HotWingAgenda: dickfreckle: It's why you'll often hear straight men bemoaning not having been born gay so as to have avoided a lifetime of cryptic comments or passive-aggressive notes left on the fridge.Speaking as a straight man who has had his share of gay friends... gay guys make cryptic comments to their boyfriends all the time. And it bugs the hell out of them.
