11 Main Differences Between Men and Women

Like VK on FB:

Many people say that men and women are from different planets. We are not really sure that it’s about planets, but most likely about physiology and some other things. Women are different from men in many aspects and some of these differences are even advantages.

Bright Side wants to share with you the things that really highlight the differences between the male and the female worlds.

Men and women dress in a different sequence.

Very few people notice this fact. But it’s pretty interesting that women are used to dressing from top to bottom — first a shirt or a blouse followed by pants or a skirt. Whilst men are used to putting on socks and jeans first, and only then do they put on a shirt or a T-shirt.

Women are less inclined to take risks.

Women have always been thought of the “caregivers.” That’s why they have a tendency to be more worried about others. Men, however, love taking risks and there’s very little that can stop them. “You only live once,” is usually not a phrase that leads to any good.

Women eat around 4.5 lb of lipstick during their lives.

It is well-known that women eat lipstick together with their food and drinks. Scientists have found out that women eat around 4.5 lb of this popular cosmetic product during their lives.

Women love cooking for their men.

Girls have this thing: when they have a boyfriend, they start feeding him very much. Such behavior may be caused by their wish to show how good they are at being housewives. There is also an opinion that other women won’t pay that much attention to a man if he is a little plump. His girlfriend won’t love him any less, but other girls won’t be that interested in him.

Sometimes women can ask very strange questions.

Yes, of course, girls are very curious and they sometimes need to know as much information as possible. However, when a girl tries to find out your login information or she wants to find out when your friend’s birthday is, you should consider why she’s asking. It may be that she is suspicious of you and she is looking for a way to find something out.

Women put a lot of effort into going down the stairs in high heels.

Many men notice how strange it looks when women go down the stairs in high heels. They do it sideways and very carefully. This is because it’s very hard to go down the stairs and that’s why you should never make a girl rush in this situation.

Shaking hands with a women is different from shaking hands with a man.

When two men shake hands, they do it firmly and they actually shake their hands. But when a woman shakes hands, she just gives a man her hand but she doesn’t move it. She keeps her hand motionless. It’s hard to say what this means, but maybe it’s because a handshake isn’t the method women usually choose to greet someone.

Alcohol and women are a heck of a mixture.

Women get drunk much faster than men. This is a well-known fact, but very few people know the actual reason for that. Well, this is quite simple: the female body doesn’t fight alcohol as well as the male body, that’s why the effect takes place faster. There is a special enzyme that fights alcohol and it destroys alcohol before it gets into the blood. Women have less of that enzyme and that’s why more alcohol gets into the bloodstream within the same time period. Men are stronger in this respect.

Women view the world on a brighter spectrum.

It has been scientifically proven that women can differentiate more colors than men due to their genes. This is why men often get mad when a girl is trying to prove that there is a difference between purple and the color eggplant.

Women have a better sense of smell.

The reason why girls love flowers so much is that their sense of smell is much more developed. And this is because their genes make women more sensitive to smells.

The female body changes more often.

The female body is very unique. Unlike the male body, it changes a lot of times during a woman’s life. Female puberty starts a few years earlier than male puberty. When a girl becomes an adult, her hips become round. This happens for one purpose — to allow enough space for childbirth.
