Guys are Sharing ‘Men Secrets'
BuzzFeed asked guys to share their “men secrets.” Here are some of the highlights: "Losing your hair is extremely distressing. It makes you feel unattractive, old, and insecure. Not everyone has the face/head to shave off remaining hair." "Adjusting the bits is second nature to men, and isn't something we even do consciously for the most part. All it takes is accidentally sitting on your balls once, and you will do anything to ensure it doesn't happen again. So please don't overreact if a guy adjusts his junk; he probably needed it, and probably didn't even realize he was doing it." "I love cuddling next to my wife as much as she loves doing it to me. It’s the feeling of being wanted and protected — that is just amazing." "Our balls are sweaty almost all of the time." "Funny one: There are urinal rules when peeing. If no one is there, take a corner. If there is a urinal with a guy on the right, and nobody to the left remotely, go as far from said guy as possible." "As a guy, I can enjoy sex without an orgasm every time." "Sometimes I get overwhelmed by life and just cry, where nobody can see me. That can be in a room by myself with the door closed, to a silent car ride home, or even the shower." "While sitting on the couch or lying in the bed, we hold our balls. Nothing sexually, just a hand down the pants. Don't know why really." "Being able to think about absolutely nothing is great. My wife gets upset when she asks me what I’m thinking about and I honestly say 'nothing,' instead of lying. I guess she expects me to be thinking of the same thing as her, even though that makes no sense and she should know better after almost seven years of marriage." "Guys want romance, too. We have feelings. Most of us just aren’t comfortable showing them. Surprise us with dates. Hug us. Don’t make us do all the work. Make us feel loved, too."

"She looked really confused for a second, handed the paper on which she wrote it and mumbled something about staying in touch. I never called." "While out for a walk I admired a cute dog. I wanted to ask what breed it was but my brain wasn’t working. Instead I asked “What brand is your dog?” which startled the owner, and myself. My attempt at correcting myself resulted in me blurting out “Species!” which only made matters worse." "When the cashier said "Have a nice day", and I replied with "No, thanks". "Background: I wasnt thinking straight that day, and thought they said "Do you want a bag".
