I must tell you that there are quite a few secrets women keep from men. Men aren’t the only ones who hide things from us, we do it too. Just like Lori Garcia (writer for babbe.com) said, “We don’t say what we mean, we hear what men don’t say, and above all, possess the uncanny ability to get what we want.” Some of these things women usually keep secret might hurt their partner’s feelings and that’s why they prefer to hide them from their loved ones. Gloria Start couldn’t be more right when she said that: “A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets.” So, here are a few of the most common secrets women keep from men that will definitely amaze you:
1. We save Memories from past Relationships
This is definitely one of the most common secrets women keep from men! Even if most women don’t like to admit it, they do save some memories from past relationships. This doesn’t mean that we still have feelings for our former partners; we just like to save a few things that made us happy at a certain point in our lives, like that love letter or that poem that he wrote us. They just remind us how good it is to feel loved and all those details that are still a part of our past have helped us become the wonderful person that we are today.
2. What We Think of Your Gifts
Most women won’t ever tell their partners that they don’t like the gifts they gave them, because they don’t want to hurt their loved one’s feelings. We appreciate your effort to try to find something that you think will suit us, so even if it’s not the best thing you could have given us, we love the fact that you paid attention to what have told you and that you always try to make us happy.
3. How Much Money We Spend on Clothes
Okay, so maybe some of you might not agree with me on this one, but I must tell you that there actually are a lot of women who don’t tell their partners how much money they spend on clothes or on shoes, because they want to avoid any potential arguments on this matter. I don’t know if it’s okay to not be completely honest with your loved one, but sometimes it’s just better to keep certain things to yourself and focus your energy on making your partner happy, because this is all that matters after all.
4. We Don’t Care about How Much Money You Make
Actually, most women don’t really care about how much money a man makes, as long as he’s kind and does everything in his power to make them happy and show them that he loves them. On the other hand, we don’t appreciate laziness and lack of motivation, so work as hard as you can, even if you don’t make as much money as you should or as much as you deserve. I’m sure that if you persevere, you will be able to reach your goals and fulfill all your dreams.
5. The Way We Feel about Your Family
Even if a woman doesn’t like her partner’s family, she will never tell them that, because she doesn’t want to jeopardize their relationship and she also doesn’t want to hurt her loved one's feelings. Most women just keep their mouths shut on this matter, because they don’t want to make their partner choose between them and their family. They will just avoid being around their significant other’s annoying relative for as long as they can.
6. We Love Flaws on Guys
Even if you won’t believe me, I must tell you that most women don’t want their men to be perfect, they actually love their flaws. A little belly, a few grey hairs, they are all things that we find irresistible about our significant other. It reminds us that we are all unique, that neither of us is perfect and that we are beautiful just the way we are, with all our flaws, because they are the things that make us stand out from the crowd.
7. We Still Stalk Our Exes
Okay, so maybe the term “stalk” is a bit harsh, but most women do check in on what their exes are up to, whether they do it via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other social networking site. The truth is that they don’t do it because they still have feelings for their former partners, they’re just curious and sometimes, they just wish they could be friends with them again.
There are a lot of things women keep from men because they don’t want to hurt their feelings and I’m sure that there are many other things I could add to this list.
