Don’t get me wrong, we all love a good moan but I do find it odd that what seems to have been one of my most popular blog posts in terms of readership is one which isn’t particularly positive towards fellas, certainly not towards my husband.
I remember writing the post well, I had suffered a seriously pants day or week and had let rip on the laptop for a good gurn about guys in general.
Men are men and quite frankly it is a well known fact that they are a breed of their own. We may well be from Venus whilst they are from Mars who knows, one things for sure we sure ain’t on the same page half of the time.
Men aren’t like us ladies, they don’t tend to think as deeply nor do they express their emotions as openly. I guess they simply aren’t as touchy-feely as us girls and that’s fine. However, there comes a time when a line must be drawn and we need to come together to settle our differences woman vs man or should I say Venus vs Mars?
Lets be honest ladies, theres some stuff that blokes simply don’t do…
Blokes Don’t Do Tidy
Blokes don’t do tidy well not like us ladies anyhow. Have you ever seen a man using a toothbrush to scrub the grout clean? Have you ever seen a man wiping the utilities to keep them shiny white? Come to think of it have you ever seen a man do anything other than fix or install the utilities? I’m kidding… no really we both load the laundry in this house.
Blokes Don’t Do Periods
Blokes don’t do periods, well they aren’t meant to by design but can you imagine a man experiencing Aunt Flow at her finest? The pubs would be filled with moaning Minnies high on hormones desperate for a hot water bottle and some dairy milk. But really they don’t seem to understand that bleeding for seven days each and every month ain’t fun nor sexy and the least said about the latter the better.
Blokes Don’t Do Lists
Blokes don’t do lists, well they might use one which has been handed to them whilst out on a supermarket mission but have you ever known a bloke write such things as a gift list? As for Santa I think if we are honest Santa has lady parts because I’m sure as hell that Christmas wouldn’t happen without us women. My hubby is more surprised than the kids when they open their parcels, he’s either forgotten or is completely clueless as to what’s wrapped up under that tree.
Blokes Don’t Do Crying
Blokes don’t do crying, well they do but it usually means something seriously tragic has happened such as their football teams lost the match or they’ve been booted in the knackers. Us girls however find ourselves sobbing at stories never mind real life shizz. Blokes on the other hand are far more together, they don’t cry unless it’s something really worth crying about.
Blokes Don’t Do Romance
Blokes don’t do romance quite like us ladies. We are fantasists whereas fellas are realists. They think less of the dirty dancing and more of getting down to the dirty. Let’s be honest ladies, we may dream of romantic dinners, sensual massages, saucy dancing but in all honesty it all boils down to one thing, the one thing usually on a blokes mind right from the start. They can’t help it, it’s just how it is!
Blokes Don’t Do Organisation
Blokes don’t do organising, unless it’s ordering the tools into their boxes or perhaps loading the dishwasher in a particular fashion. Have you ever known a bloke organise a children’s party? A holiday? A filing cabinet? Or even his sock drawer? Blokes quite simply don’t do organisation in quite the same way as us girls, their version of organisation seems to be from the school of ‘It’ll do’.
Blokes Don’t Do Whinging
Blokes don’t do whinging, well they say they don’t but I’m damn sure that I’ve heard Paul whinge when there’s no beer in the fridge. But really, blokes have a different way of working things out to us ladies, we like to discuss our issues whereas men prefer to solve the problems singularly without whining.
Blokes Don’t Do Underwear
Blokes don’t do underwear, they might wear underwear but they don’t do underwear. They don’t care less whether their boxers are blazoned with Homer Simpson or even have a hole in them, so long as are cleanish and cover the essentials.
Women’s underwear however is a whole different ball game especially where men are concerned. Us ladies like to have underwear for every occasion and time of the month whether that be when the painters are in or when the children are out…
Blokes Don’t Do Beauty
Blokes don’t do beauty. They might look in the mirror now and then but they think that foundation is something a house is built upon, they haven’t a clue that it’s part of our daily makeup routine. As for the likes of HD brows, eye lash curlers or bronzing balls they aren’t ever likely to understand. Give up now gals!
Blokes Don’t Do Shoes Or Handbags
Blokes don’t do shoes or handbags for that matter. They might own a couple of pairs of shoes but the bottom of their wardrobe is never going to compare to that of a woman’s. Us ladies love shoes right? You will never be too fat to fit into a pair of shoes or to carry a handbag filled full of chocolate and that right there is fact. I have boots, shoes, heels, flats, trainers, slippers, Wellies, flip flops and all kinds of footwear. As for handbags, I have stupid amounts of bags all of which are of course essential and will be used at some point in time.
Paul on the other hand has the bare minimum when it comes to footwear and other than hand luggage and a laptop case doesn’t do bags at all. Mind you he has a stunning figure and can wear almost anything he fancies! He’s therefore far less inclined to favour shoes and handbags than me.
Coming To Terms With The Truth About Blokes
I guess we are all different and some of the above may not apply to a few blokes and I mean a few. However, it’s far easier to understand why your fella may leave his washing next to washing basket and not in the sodding basket when you learn to accept that blokes just aren’t like us women and as much as they may try and fail they will never understand how a woman’s mind works nor will we ever fathom the mystery that is men!
Tell Me The Things Your ‘Blokes Don’t Do’
I’d love to hear some of your ‘blokes don’t do…’ suggestions if anything for a giggle as we all need a laugh now and then. You can either leave me a comment below, drop me an email or get in touch via social media.
I’m pretty sure that we aren’t all going to share the same views/ values but life’s a never ending debate and who says we have to agree?
