You know what they say, men are from Mars, women are from Jupiter, non-binary people are from Earth. Ok, I don’t know, maybe that’s not the saying, I was just trying to update it a little.

Here are 10 anonymously submitted things that some men say they just don’t get about the ladies. And hold on, cause some of these hot takes are…iffy.

1. Digital jealousy

Sounds like you’ve been with some folks who’ve got trust issues.

We may never fully understand each other, but making an actual effort to try to get closer to that understanding certainly goes a very long way. Let’s make that a priority, shall we?

What’s something you don’t understand about women? Or men? Or people in general?
