Men Ask Their Questions About Women, Get Some Answers by Jackie Pilossoph for Chicago Tribune Media Group
Last week, I called my friend to tell him I was going to be a few minutes late for our meeting because I wanted to squeeze in a manicure since it was the day before Thanksgiving.
“Why do women get their nails done?” he asked. “I never understood that.”
That’s when it hit me. Sometimes, men just don’t get us.
To answer my friend’s question, having manicured nails can make some women feel good about themselves. It can make a woman feel pretty and feminine. Those feelings can in turn cultivate confidence and poise in someone’s attitude and demeanor.
His question got me thinking, “What else do men wonder about when it comes to women?” So I asked him, along with a bunch of other men I know. Here are 15 of their questions, followed by my answers.
1. Why do women get dressed up to go out with each other?
Women often have a deep respect for other women. So, when we make plans to have lunch or drinks or coffee with one or more of them, we probably want to look nice for them. Not only do I care what other women think, but I want to feel confident and self-assured, and that starts with physical appearance. I personally wouldn’t feel that great wearing yoga pants and a ponytail to a bar.
2. Why can’t women get along with other women in their office?
