While you have a lot of perks of being a man, there is quite a lot you can learn from women. Women have it all figured out when we talk about certain focus areas men need to work on. There is a reason why women are called the fairer sex. You may never be able to understand them completely, but there are a few qualities you must learn from them. Here they are.
Men often lose out on dealing with emotions. Changing a punctured tyre at the middle of a highway maybe easy for men, but as soon as you hear “we need to talk”, most of you would crumble on the ground. You may be physically stronger, but women are emotionally more sound and stable than you. It is probably because they do not shy away from expressing themselves. Take a note of that.
We’re not saying men are inconsiderate. But caring and nurturing is something women can beat you at any given day. They are simply great at taking care, most of them. Men are often tagged as the ‘insensitive sex’. You gotta change that notion. Learn from your female counterparts and start being a little more considerate to people around you and their needs.
We can see most of you agreeing. It’s stereotypical but very true – women are far more patient than men. A woman knows how to deal with situations with a calm mind – be it an argument with her man or a crisis at work.

Women are sensitive. They respect other individuals – something a lot of men lack. With so many crimes happening against women in the country, it is high time Indian men begin to respect the other sex.
Ever wonder how your girlfriend can listen to music, work and talk to you, all at the same time? Ever wonder how your mother effortlessly juggles her work-life and the household chores? That’s multitasking and women are experts at it. We’re simple and can only perform one task at a time. But when it comes to work, efficiency matters which is where women score way above men.
It is childish to keep grudges. While men rarely show emotions, they can be quite the emotional blackmailers when they catch their women doing something wrong. Most women are mature enough to let it pass and move on.
What is intimacy to men? Sex, right? Men and women have different reasons to get intimate. While men largely focus on the intercourse, women weigh the ‘loving’ part more. It tells that they’re not in it for the sake of it, which is very much the case for most men. You need to learn from women that intimacy is much beyond sex – it is a way of connecting with another person on both physical and mental level.

That is unarguably the most important thing you need to learn from women. Commitment is probably the biggest phobia known to men. Women put in all their sincere efforts in anything that they do – they’re never scared to commit. A sense of commitment is a quality that will make you a real man.

Women are somehow right about all the big decisions, which is a quality you must exhibit as a man. It is also because of your non-committal nature that you’re never able to zero down on one thing. Women on the other hand never let anything hanging loose.
Keeping The Ego Aside

We men often go down the wrong track while arguing. The chauvinistic society we live instills certain ridiculous biases in our minds against women and their inferiority to men. You must learn how to not let your ego and pride from coming in between every time you fight with your girl.
