Men He wants to know what?
Have you ever considered what guys really want to ask us, but don’t know how? We gave 12 men a safe space to get honest. These are the talks you need to have with them.
“Why do you date bad men? Among my friends, the nice guys get overlooked and women seem to go for the hardest challenge, or set themselves up with a player.”
– Nick, 32 “Is it OK to notice if a woman is (or isn’t) wearing makeup? I never know whether it’s offensive to say, ‘Your makeup looks good’ – because I don’t want her to think that I’m implying she needs it.” – Mark,22
“What shape do you really want a man to be? Slim? Athletic? Beefcake? Does it even matter?” – Simon, 31
“If a man was the secondary earner, would it be masculine enough? I worry that it would become more of an issue if you were planning marriage or kids. Would you resent me if we had financial strains?” – Jerome, 32
“Is it OK if we don’t dance on a night out? It’s competitive and makes me sweat, but am I ‘boring’ if I choose to sit out?” – Oliver, 26
“Is it ever alright for men to cry or get emotional? I always think that it’s one of those things people say is OK in a time when we’re striving for gender equality, but actually find a real turn-off.” – Daniel, 33
