Why Do We Love Women and Hate Them At the Same Time?

You’ve heard the old saying, “Women: you can’t live with them; you can’t live without them” or the even more popular version, “Women: you can’t live with them; you can’t shoot them”.

Either way you look at it women drive men crazy (in a negative way) and women drive men crazy (in a positive way).

What is it about women that men hate and what still makes men keep coming back for more?

What Men Hate About Women


1. They talk too much.

Have you ever heard a woman talk on the phone? Jeez-us, you’ll hear her jabber and jabber for a long period of time without even taking a breath. Then there will be dead silence for a long time. This isn’t because she’s done talking. In fact, that’ll never happen.

Instead, it’s because she’s giving her friend a chance to jabber and jabber without taking a breath. The bad thing is that they talk the same way to men, and expect us to listen and then respond! What they don’t realize is that men don’t have that long of an attention span for anything except sports, food, and sex.


2. They spend too much money.

It’s no secret that women love to shop. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if women were the ones that invented the jewelry store and the mall. If they want to spend their own money on petty things such as designer clothes, jewelry, and makeup, then men have no problem with it. The problem comes in when they go shopping with their man’s money.


3. They nag and bitch a lot.

If you’re a single guy, then you may not have encountered this yet. A lot of women are really sneaky about it. She’ll be very sweet and seem as if she’s the perfect match for you. So, you decide to marry her, then wham! All of a sudden this monstrous beast comes out in her like you’ve never seen. She wants to know why she always has to beg you to take out the trash and why she never gets any help with the housework.

She tells you what a loser you are because you didn’t call to tell her you were going to the bar after work and she makes it a federal case when you want to hang out with your friends. As she’s calling you a loser and telling you all the things that you do wrong, she then says that she feels unappreciated. What happened to that sweet little angel you were with prior to getting married?


4. They have mood swings, show their emotions for everyone to see, and cry often.

Women can have some wicked mood swings, especially at particular times of the month, so they claim. Some women are moody all the time. One minute they can be screaming at you for something you did and the next minute they can be crying because they’re sorry they treated you like that and they’ll tell you how much they love you.

What ever happened to consistency? This can happen so fast that a lot of times that it has men’s heads spinning. Also, men are taught from an early age not to show too much in the way of emotions. Getting too emotional is weak. Apparently no one ever told women this. In fact, someone must have told women that they should show more emotions to make up for what their men don’t show.


5. They have mothers.

Again, if you’re a single guy, you may not yet know what I’m talking about. However, once you’re married, you get introduced to a force more evil than your wife. It’s called the mother-in-law. A mother-in-law doesn’t have bouts of being sweet and she will never tell you how much she loves you or appreciates you.

She’s just nasty and bitchy all the time. You’ll be convinced that she has a vendetta against you, especially since every time you see her, she gives you the “I’m going to kill you in your sleep” look.

What Men Love About Women


1. They satisfy a man’s sexual needs.

While it may be true that not all women will satisfy every sexual desire men have, they will satisfy a man’s need. A man’s sexual needs are very basic. They just need sex. That’s it. Nothing complex, just plain good old-fashioned sex. Anything else is a bonus. For most men, this is the number one coolest thing about women.


2. They cook.

Traditionally, women are the ones that do the cooking. Although some women don’t or won’t cook, as a rule women love to cook for their men. You’ve heard the old saying, “A way to man’s heart is through is stomach”. It’s true – well, mostly.


3. They clean the house.

Apparently women can see dirt before men because they seem to constantly be cleaning. They may bitch a bit when they do it, but if you can learn to tune the bitching out, it’s really nice. You don’t have to lift a finger and your house is clean all the time! How great is that? You can be watching Sunday afternoon football and by the time the game is over, your house is clean. Now, that’s magical.


4. Men love the way women look.

Men may often complain that women spend too much money. Of course, it’s true. However, once in a while, when they go shopping, they will purchase some incredibly hot lingerie, a sexy bikini, or a tight little outfit that shows off all of her curves in all the right places. The spending money part still sucks, but showing it off is a great benefit.


5. They make men feel important.

All you have to do is show a woman a little respect and buy her flowers every once in a while and in return, she will think that you are the most amazing person in the world. When she’s not bitching, she’ll show you just how much she appreciates you and will be very loyal. You may perceive this as being clingy, and often times women are, but the fact that she worships you is pretty cool.

Most younger men they feel that the bad outweighs the good and that’s why they don’t get married right away. As men get older, they start to realize that there’s a lot to be said for having a home cooked meal, a clean house, a sexy woman, feeling important, and having sex on a regular basis. How about you? Does the good outweigh the bad or does the bad outweigh the good?

    To sum up: men are selfish and only like things to do with them or that they benefit from.

  2. Mars says:

    so do women!

  3. just me says:

    you must date the wrong women then. i despise shopping, can't stand my mother, and i don't talk a lot. and when women talk a lot, it's because we have to say something to a man at least three times before he listens or understands! i'm usually quie shy. the only mood swings i get is when it's that time of the month. and i hardly ever "nag". I just walk away from an agrument. and yes, i have to agree with Cee. men are selfish, that's why women become lesbians!

    • Casc says:

      lol you don't talk alot, yet you posted the longest response to this article haha

    • micheal says:

      umm can i say something most women nag and if your diffrent and thing men are just total selfish dushes bags then you wont be in a great realtaition ship and everything he listed aint true like cooking and cleaning my mom does not cook and will not clean unless it gets to that point when its like this is nasty then she makes us come and help her clean. my mom is a huge bitch who nags and always wants me to over achieve and she wont like it when i dont. i dont look at there looks all the time my dad said theres nothing wrong with looking just touching if you look so what but if you touch thats wrong. this only goes when your in a relationship. im 14 not some 30 year loser living at his moms house.

  4. lol says:

    get over it "just me"

  5. Richard says:

    So does everyone.

    Honestly though, if they didn't give you all that grief they wouldn't be a wife. They would be an unpaid cleaning lady and I would be a lazy bum who wont get off his arse.

    Also, on the shopping side of things I do enjoy nice things when I can afford them, which is why I'm always poor, we both enjoy shopping, at least I do when it's not busy.

    It may be mosogynistic, but hey, it works!

  6. sexual needs… thanks ladys

  7. Bob says:

    Ha! this is all true! The mood swings really drive you nuts! and the nagging too! And making a big case out of small stuff! hahaha!
    Guys…here's the reason you cannot WIN an argument with a woman: As a man, you are trained to argue using logic and facts, figures, etc. That means didley squat to a woman! They argue using emotions and circular reasoning and methods you cannot begin to fathom. That and their incredible memory of bringing up bad stuff you did many years ago!

    Unfortunately you have to tall all of above bad stuff with the good stuff about women. Definitely true…can't live with them, can't live without them!

  8. stylemog says:

    You are right Bob – their memory is incredible!

    Any other reasons we love/hate them?

  9. Wow says:

    So if I'm reading this right, men are all selfish, insecure assholes and women are all naggy, shallow bitches?

    What a sad world you live in, sir.

  10. Ms.Sych says:

    The man who wrote this is a fool who will never get a woman. Whoever agrees with this is a sexist pig. Women do argue with logic and the reason we nag and bitch is because men are so stupid and childish. You drive us insane with your idiocy.

    • Mr.Sych says:

      He's married, did you even read the article?

      "Whoever agrees with this is a sexist pig. Women do argue with logic and the reason we nag and bitch is because men are so stupid and childish."


    • micheal says:

      that is a bit true that we do maybe a couple of stupid things but if you would look at how much fun were having while doing those stupid thing instead of think you idiots why would you do that. men we tend to look at the fun side and women they try to look at the logic of the matter at hand thats why we call yall ball busters because one time i went bunjy jumping naked it was fun and really cool intill we got in trouble with the law. we had to pay a fine for doing it naked but tell me that may have been really stupid but can you imagine how much fun we were having and instead of think wow that was stupid think how much fun that would be to do it.

  11. Jess says:

    Eugh. Talk about chauvinistic. What an unfulfilling life this guy must lead.

  12. lol, good article, very informative

  13. stylemog says:

    Very fulfilling life actually, not a sad world. If we drive you insane with our "idiocy", then why do you spend hours on the phone with your girlfriends talking about us?

  14. disgusted says:

    Textbook example of American sexism.

  15. wtfff says:

    This article makes men look bad. Please let the number of men who don't think like this outweigh the men who do.

    To the author: Good luck never having fullfiling relationships.

  16. Entertained says:

    haha.. this is too funny. Seeing all the women in here tear the guy who wrote this a part and all the guys agreeing with what the guy said. The women responses are actually proving the article correct. So hypocritical ladies, c'mon!

    Of course there is more to it than this as he is generalizing (not ALL women are the same as "just me" points out) but for a quick, interesting article, I found myself agreeing with most of what he said. Chauvinistic, Idiocy, Sexism, Shallow.. call it whatever you want. The quicker you learn how true most of what he wrote is, the better you'll understand your relationship (or future relationships). This "fool who will never get a woman" honestly seems to have written this based on experience. You all are oblivious to the fact that he is actually showing you how some men think (even if it may be small minded).

    Excellent article and well written.

    • eric says:

      I'm a guy and I am disgusted. I was one of them that replied "tearing him apart". Not all men are shallow and brainless.

      The fact of the matter is, you give a woman respect, she will love you. You treat her like dirt, of course she's going to get all over your case. Frankly, if the only women you've been with do the type of things in the article, you need to start dating some women with a brain and some class.

  17. Some chick says:

    Most of you need to chill out and gain a sense of humor. This isn't some thesis on women, it's some guy's opinions. Some were pretty funny. None are to be taken too seriously.

  18. John Watson says:

    I think you pretty much summed it up in a nutshell! Well done!


  19. You should add: "Their need for comitment" to the list of what men hate about women…

    • lcg says:

      hah! can't say that because guys are worse! who do you think enforced marriage historically? then women get a little freedom and suddenly it doesn't matter as much. men should be thanking women for their current state of sexual access and freedom. Rather, they take credit for it… golden.

  20. Um... says:

    So men are only happy when everything is all about them, and his wife is serving hiim?

    I don't think that's how a relationship works. You're doing it wrong.

    • micheal says:

      noo he said some good things about it that some women do yea looks are good and sex better and cooking and cleaning but let me ask you what do you want from a guy hhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmm a good guy tat would help you protect you when needed not saying all women want same thing but cmon we want things out of it too how bout this if i cook you clean but you prob bitch about that too like a clean more then you cook.

  21. Excellent article, and really difficult-to-answer question:
    Does the bad outweigh the good…?! Hell if I only knew!

    Maybe the cause of all these problems lies in the different brain structures of men and women:

  22. Jspizzade says:

    Why are women on a site named alpha males of the group and talking about their periods?

  23. Miah says:

    pretty funny and is soooooo true.. Come on girls, let us accept these facts.. It's good to know that they can't live without women..that they need us and their only happiness and fulfillment on their lives.. That no matter how we nag or how much we spend money or how long our memories are, there are still lot of things they love about us.. Why get angry when everything written were just so true on most women?

    Very inspiring and real..

  24. KEEGZ says:


  25. WTF? says:

    Really? All of the things guys hate about women could apply to men too. When you first begin dating, the guy will treat you really nice & if he owns his own place, it's usually spotless. Then when you get married, it's like he forgets how to clean! Where the hell did the clean, nice man go? Did he get lost somewhere between the car and the altar?

    And I know a lot of guys who never shut the hell up. Seriously. I don't need to hear the same thing three times over when I heard you perfectly fine the first time.

    Also, when was the last time someone DIDN'T hear a guy bitch? Wah, wah, so we want you to wipe your feet before you come in so you don't get the house dirty that you seem to like so much. Big flippin' deal. Doesn't sound like a whole lot to ask.

  26. hitched says:

    Great article, married men cannot win, we have to give up our balls to be the perfect husband. But i do love the night caps!!

  27. Grumpy old man says:

    Funny top list, because it might be the most stupid list I ever read.
    Srsly? Show me more girls with boobs instead, it has more substance…

  28. sex addict says:

    i love big boobs!!!!! 🙂

  29. jack3 says:

    "sex addict" everybody loves big boobs but WE DNT SAY IT IN PUBLIC!!!

  30. Mog says:

    I can't believe there are women here saying basically 'we're not all like that'.
    This article is misogynistic drivel, and sounds like it's coming from somebody who has had no contact with women in his life. No woman should ever feel the need to apologise for such ludicrous stereotypes. This is the 21st century – shit like this shouldn't be acceptable anymore.

    • RACHEL says:

      this is bullshit my husband is always talking and bitching!god forbid he stubs his toe he thinks the world should stop

  31. Alexander E says:

    The guy is right. I have lived in USA, latin amerika and I come from Europe. As soon as a woman wants to be with you, she wants to control stuff, change you. Bad things are good to change, but they want to have to much controll. I might have met the wrong women…but there have been so many of them in that case. What a trauma

  32. Steffy says:

    In all honesty, that sounds like my boyfriend. Granted he never cleaned. But really, your idea of how women work is very primitive. But then again this just shows how much men have evolved throughout the years.

  33. mimah says:

    yeah when I realized that my man was just gonna sit around and discard rubbish from his hands to the floor while I cleaned all bloody day i just stopped cleaning and cooking well if he complains about what I’ve cooked coz it’s not fancy enough he comes home to no dinner the next day same with washing his clothes if he leaves them on the floor they don’t get washed sorry guys but we are not your slaves sure i had to fight him tooth and nail for two years almost destroy the relationship and cop a few smacks around the head but now I have a very well trained man who has learned not to complain about me being a woman. all men are born pigs unless a woman shows them otherwise and the nagging maybe if you idiots listened and did what we asked the first time we wouldn’t nag and sorry but men can talk just as much as women I’m constantly telling my man to shut up about work and cars and shit I just don’t give a crap about he talks non stop about the kind of crap

  34. dede says:

    dat5 totally true ma girl does everything for us they make us feel dat we r important in dis world and withoou them idk wat we would thanx alot girls we the guyes love u all.=) <3

  35. Lcg says:

    wow, this is such the classic list. my dad was the cook, my boyfriend is the one that likes to clean, and sexual needs are far more important to me than to him. oh, and my mom ditches dudes because she doesn't want to listen to THEM nag and whine and bitch about there feelings and why she isn't emotional enough. really- think outside the little box. Don't understand why guys who think like this still exist! women- please stop breeding with these idiots and letting them raise little monsters who are also dicks like this. people are people and if you keep telling a population that they are a certain way, its a self fulfilling prophesy and those are the women you find and create. probably get women like the above because only dumb bitches would dream of putting up with you. 🙂
