Here’s a list of some compelling questions that men are eager to know about women. Read them here.
By nature, we are a curious lot who love to discover more about the opposite sex. Curiosity takes over, and we turn to the easiest and most accessible platform- the internet, which seems to have all the answers to our most weird questions.
Recently while surfing through various social media platforms, I discovered a few bizarre questions that men have about women. Some interesting and some truly funny.
So, let’s dig into some of the questions and I hope you will enjoy reading them.
This is a common question that I’ve come across several sites. For the men who are curious to know- most women carry their keys, cellphone, wallet, sunglasses, a comb, a pen, important papers and not forgetting their make-up kit. They may carry several other things too, but the ones I’ve mentioned are common.
Personally, I’ve been subjected to this question several times too. Yes, we dress because we want to celebrate our form, to look better and to feel good about ourselves. We dress for ourselves and to impress others too. There is no harm in that. But that does not give anyone the license to harass us. Do men seriously have to worry when they step out of their homes, dressed to the T?
Because women love to look good. Looking good makes us feel good and confident. But not all women take too much time to dress. Not all women are the same, after all. If we have to leave home for an urgent work, we might as well just slip into a pair of jeans and a T shirt, comb our hair, just to look presentable and zoom out of our homes. And yes, without any make up.
This is interesting. Some women like bold men, some may go for their killer looks, for some intelligence in a man is what matters, some may like men who are down-to-earth and humorous. But to sum it all up. Women like men who respect and value them. If a man has all the above mentioned qualities and if he has not learnt the art to treat a woman with respect, then the other qualities don’t really matter. Treating a woman with respect and valuing her is number one on the list.
Not that we have anything against bikinis. But given the number of leering pervs, who wants to take a chance? Of course we would love to wear them, if safety measures are in place and we don’t feel like objects in a museum.
Well! The response was pretty good. After browsing through a couple of answers, some women said- Indian men forgive and forget easily. They don’t hold grudges. They are family-oriented. They are passionately fond of their mothers. Indian men are hard-working and intelligent. In relationships, they should know where to draw the line, when it comes to their own family and their partners (wife/girlfriend). Both are equally important. I honestly agree to most of the responses here.
Ahh! This is tricky. It might be tough in the initial phase of the relationship, when you see your guy garnering a lot of attention from the good looking gals. Having said that if the guy honestly loves his wife/ girlfriend and expresses it by giving her attention, then she has no reason to feel insecure. And more so if she’s confident of herself.
So, these were some of the fascinating questions I came across today. Many men also perceive women as secretive and people who love to be mysterious. There I go again. Another secret revealed.

I huffed, puffed and panted up the hill, taking many rest breaks along the way. My calf muscles pained, my heart protested, and my breathing became heavy at one stage.
“Let’s turn back,” my husband remarked. We stood at the foot of Shravanbelagola – one of the most revered Jain pilgrimage centres. “We will not climb the hill,” he continued.
My husband and I were vacationing in Karnataka. It was the month of May, and even at the early hour of 8 am in the morning, the sun scorched our backs. After visiting Bangalore and Mysore, we had made a planned stop at this holy site in the Southern part of the state en route to Hosur. Even while planning our vacation, my husband was very excited at the prospect of visiting this place and the 18 m high statue of Lord Gometeshwara, considered one of the world’s tallest free-standing monolithic statues.
What we hadn’t bargained for was there would be 1001 granite steps that needed to be climbed to have a close-up view of this colossal magic three thousand feet above sea level on a hilltop. It would be an understatement to term it as an arduous climb.
Why is the Social Media trend of young mothers of boys captioning their parenting video “Dear future Daughter-in-Law, you are welcome” deeply problematic and disturbing to me as a young mother of a girl?
I have recently come across a trend on social media started by young mothers of boys who share videos where they teach their sons to be sensitive and understanding and also make them actively participate in household chores.
However, the problematic part of this trend is that such reels or videos are almost always captioned, “To my future daughter-in-law, you are welcome.” I know your intentions are positive, but I would like to point out how you are failing the very purpose you wanted to accomplish by captioning the videos like this.
I know you are hurt—perhaps by a domestic household that lacks empathy, by a partner who either is emotionally unavailable, is a man-child adding to your burden of parenting instead of sharing it, or who is simply backed by overprotective and abusive in-laws who do not understand the tiring journey of a working woman left without any rest as doing the household chores timely is her responsibility only.
