Guys are already so weird about girl things. But honestly, y'all have no idea of everything we go through everyday. We could keep our secrets, but sharing them is more fun. Dudes aren't ready.

Here were some of those answers.
The Hair Is EverywhereGiphy
The weird stray hairs on your chin, neck, cheek. I had one on my neck that I never knew about until recently. I tweezed it off, and it was about 3 inches long. How did I not see this before?!
Lots of women don't primarily take anticonception pills because they have sex and don't want to get pregnant, but for various health reasons, e.g. severe acne, passing out from blood loss during period, etc.
I frequently have snacks in my purse. I don't tell because I don't want to share.
I was with someone and I reached around and unclasped my bra and did the thing where you take off the straps and then just pull the bra out of your shirt and my partner thought it was f-ckin' sorcery. The look on his face was priceless.
My friends and I in college would always use the restroom as sort of a half-time throughout the night
"How are you feeling? Do you think you're too drunk? Are you cool with that guy dancing on you? Are we leaving separately or together?"
That sort of stuff was always asked.
If I'm putting my legs in your lap it's because I just shaved and I want you to point it out because I took time out of my day to shave and be smooth for you.
Science: Fascinating, Yet Gross
A lot of women on their fertile days of the month have a type of vaginal discharge that's the consistency of a jellyfish. It helps to guide sperm from the vagina and into the uterus to hang out until an egg can come down and be fertilized.
Bras do not get washed after every wear.
When guys try to act cool in front of girls, it's painfully obvious and almost always goes awry.
Those long trips to the bathroom are meditative. A personal recharge. Check ourselves out, touch-up makeup and hair, examine our whole look, strike a pose or two. We are Rocky and we are Mickey Goldmill. Yes b-tch, you there, look at that hair. Your eyebrows are f-cking phenomenal. Insert a few selfies that you never end up posting, but are totally post worthy. I come out of that bathroom feeling new. I'm ready for you, world, you best be ready for me. Hair flip.
Also I just drink a lot of water.
If we whip out lube, or ask you to use some, it is NOT meant as a slight against you or your sexual abilities. While we do self-produce lubricant, it is often times more pleasurable (for both parties) if a little extra is added. Also, naturally produced lubricant dries faster, and has a rather unpleasant feeling to it once it dries. I wish men would stop being so prudish or offended by the idea of lube.
MEN, buy some lube (or ask your girl to pick some up of her choosing)!! And DON'T BE AFRAID TO USE IT. Make sure it's one that is water-based if you're using condoms, and try to keep it as natural as possible (skip the flavored kind if you're using for intercourse).
Just Call Me Mary Poppins
I keep just about anything you might need during the day in my purse. Band-aids, pads, snacks, a vibrator, etc. I even found a mini water gun in there a week ago. Purses are f-cking magical.
Alright since no one else has brought it up and I have vaguely mentioned it --
Symptoms of premenopause don't always start in your 40s or 50s. It's not unheard of to begin in your 20s and its actually not super uncommon for it to happen in your 30s.
Hormones are weird, especially in women. And it's likely helpful for the hetero men here to understand a little about it if you intend to share your life with a woman, f-cking buckle in.
My mom started premenopause when she was my age, 30, and didn't actually go through it until she was ~55. So 25 years of weird hormonal things they never even tell us about.
I honestly didn't know about how this presents until recently when I starting showing symptoms.
I know several women that, before they go on a first date with a guy, they'll share their location with a friend and text them that guy's full name... just in case.
