A lot of common beliefs about men and women tend be wrong.

After being back in the dating scene for a few years with a lot of experiences and fresh eyes I have come to grow and develop as a person while learning a lot of eye-opening things about the realities of men and women and how they often contradict the usual beliefs and pervaded myths about them. Here are some of the top myths about men and women and why they truly do not often match up with reality.

Women Are Crazy

This myth comes from the concept that women are very unstable in how they communicate or handle men in relationships. Though there is a lot of truth to that in many cases, that does not necessarily mean they actually are crazy. The truth is they have a completely different type of brain while at the same time develop under a somewhat different experience than men making their approach and expression completely different, especially in this area, coming off as nonsensical or insane when attempting to look at it abstractly in a purely logical fashion. You need to apply context and a different perspective instead.

Women are not crazy, it is just that their brains work more like an analog system than a digital one. Analogue was once the only means for modern technology before the digital age, but now that digital has been established, it has become the mainstream go-to format. Yet even today we have strong niches and even the re-emergence of popularity of analog formats, with vinyl records being particularly of note. Just as how analog equipment tends to be more delicate yet made simply though often mysterious while requiring specific processes to work and maintain properly, women are also not as convenient as an on-off binary 1s and 0s digital system that is just push-button in nature. Though analog equipment can have buttons and dials, many often need to be warmed-up or handled properly not to malfunction or damage.

Men tend to be more simple to deal with, like a “do it or forget it,” yes or no system, so to them this convoluted process of dealing and communicating with women may have them easily interpret that as “crazy” when really it is just different. Men can be complicated and difficult in their own ways due to contextual aspects and pressure from society for them to take most of the responsibility on top of the anti-masculinity movements that look down on men…
