I was talking to a friend last night and we got on to the topic of the advantages of being a guy. We both agreed that we much prefer being male, given what women have to go through: childbirth and monthly cycles being high on the list.
That’s not to say being a guy doesn’t have it’s downsides, though. The ones we focused on last night were dating related: having to be the one to approach the girl, having to be the one to make the followup call for another date, and getting the timing right, since if you call too soon, you’re desperate, but if you take too long, she figures you’re not really interested. A female friend once remarked on the same topic, that while she thinks guys have it easier in general, that’s one guy-assigned responsibility she’s glad she doesn’t have to deal with and is more than glad to let us keep that.
Other than the pain that comes from sudden shots to the groinal region, this is definitely my least favorite thing about being a guy. Any suggestions on other guy annoyances?
