When They Say You're Beautiful They Mean It
From Redditor u/Gourmandcamp:
That when I tell her she's beautiful, I mean it.
The number of times I've heard, "you're just blinded by love" or "you're not objective" makes this very frustrating. Sorry that I'm not a third-party test laboratory operating a double-blind study!

Women Are Just As Dirty As Men
From Redditor u/HipHpDownTheBlock:
Women are just as dirty as men. I'm so sick of hearing about how men don't clean while I trip over my girlfriend's random stuff on the ground, throw out her expired food, and empty the dishwasher instead of filling up the sink. How many times have we been told to "hang on a sec" while women take 5 minutes to clear out all the sh*t from their passenger seat?

Men Don't Always Know Why They're In A Bad Mood
From Redditor u/icepyrox:
When I'm in a foul mood, I may not actually know why I'm in this mood. It could just be hunger. It could be something that happened at work that affected me in a way I'm not entirely sure of.
When I'm asked, "what's wrong" there may not be a legitimate answer. I may not even realize I'm in a mood. If I answer "I don't know", that may be a completely accurate answer. Pushing further just makes me question every thought and feeling I can recall over the entire day and send me into a spiral because I just don't know.

"You Pick The Place" Is An Annoying Way To Decided Where To Eat
From Redditor u/TheBeardedSingleMalt:
"You pick the place" is super annoying when it comes down to deciding where to eat. We can't keep track of all your unapproved restaurants, and don't wanna spend 30 minutes listing every single place while you give a reason not to go there
