‘Sleeping through a crying baby’: 14 manly qualities women are jealous of

Women can never trust us with their stuff. And it’s totally the other way round in out case. They’re the more organised ones and that gives us a license to always depend on them. This makes them the careful ones while we can roam about with no mental burden.

1. Ability To Fix Everything

How they wish they were half as good with nude wires, sockets and fixing electric bulbs. Not just that, men usually have a way with handling all kinds of crisis, a quality women exchanged for their favourite lipstick.

2. Men Don’t Fret 

Nothing pisses your girl off than the fact that while she cannot refrain from clouding her mind with unimportant thoughts, you’re having the time of your life without having to worry at all!
3. Sleeping Through A Crying Baby 
No matter how loud the baby cries, our sleep doesn’t break. The window glass may shatter, the ceiling may fall off but there is no way we are waking up. And it kills her.
4. Ageing With Grace 

Men get better with age. How women wish the same were true for them. Sadly, a woman dies a little every time she cuts a birthday cake (because they’re definitely not turning wise, just old). They really need to learn from men how to age gracefully.

5. We Mean What We Say 

When we say we’re okay we really are. When she says she is okay, it means nothing in the world is okay. A woman’s inherent habit to say something and mean quite the other does more good than harm to their lives. They can never seem to understand how we can always mean what we say.

6. How Easily We Can Depend On Them 

Women can never trust us with their stuff. And it’s totally the other way round in out case. They’re the more organised ones and that gives us a license to always depend on them. This makes them the careful ones while we can roam about with no mental burden. Of course, with responsibility, comes some more responsibility.

7. Sex Is The Cure For Everything

We’re simple beings. Some good sex can solve the biggest of our problems. With women, the concept of solutions doesn’t exist. All that is there is nagging and cribbing. They cannot stand the fact that we have a one stop solution to every problem.

8. Long Lasting Friendships

While a beer mug can solve the biggest of tiffs between you and your buddies, your girl would probably stop talking to her best friend if they both end up wearing the same dress at a party. Nothing in the world can reunite them, despite having been best friends once, and she hates it.

9. Being The Favourite Parent 

The child always chooses the dad. Children are little Gods. They know who’s better and women just can’t accept defeat. The child identifies her as the disciplinary warden and sees you as the cooler parent! She may diss you for not being responsible enough, but deep down she craves to be the more popular one.

10. Being Ourselves 

In their daily mission to be proper and perfect all the time, they forget how it is like to not give a damn about what others think. They wish they could snore away through the night or scratch their crotches whenever they felt the urge too, but they know they aren’t as cool-headed.

11. Being Good At Gaming 

Even if it’s the first time you’re playing a game, two tries is all it would take for you to start setting high scores and competing with the best of players, while she is still finding it hard to keep the snake from dissing its own tail.

12. Ability To Get Ready Quickly

They love getting ready. But when they look at how less it takes for you to get ready and look better than them in a plain black suit you’ve worn thrice before, they wish they could be men too.

13. Take Jokes Sportingly 

When someone tells us we’ve put on weight, we take the joke sportingly and have a good laugh. With women, say the same words and you’re in for some real trouble. Not everyone can take jokes on themselves without getting offended, definitely not women.

14. Not Knowing What’s Where

We never seem to remember where we kept our stuff. We always want someone in charge of all the important stuff for us while we relax on our favourite couches, and women hate being those someones. They want to live the relaxed life too, every now and then, but as we all know, we’re anything but dependable – an advantage we love to exercise.
