So today, I was talking to some of my friends about women and their lifestyle. That is when my male friends told me that they envy women. Taken aback?
In our society men definitely, have more power and freedom than women. They have the freedom to travel late at night, wear clothes of their choice. So why are they envious of us?
But as they began disclosing to me the reasons why they are envious, I couldn't keep calm and noted each and every point. Here is what they said:
"Gosh! I am looking so dull."
"Wow! I am so pretty"
Men are jealous of how makeup magically enhances our looks.
According to men, ladies washrooms are very lavish. They think that a ladies washroom is not only well-equipped but also very clean.
My male friends believe that women can garner more attention than them, even without making an effort.
Men envy taking women out on dates and paying their bills. They don't understand why a waiter comes to them with the receipt and not women.
The joy of removing their bra as soon as they reach home is something every woman is aware of. Men apparently are jealous of even that feeling.
Men totally envy women for having soft and silky hair. They want to experience what a perfect hair flick feels like.
As far as I have interacted with guys, according to them, leggings and skirt are the two most comfortable things a woman has in her wardrobe.
Be it their wardrobe or shopping mall, men think that women have more options when it comes to clothes. They feel that despite having enough clothes, they complain, "mere pass to kapde hi nahi hai."
Men are surprised with the variety of clothes women have at their offering. They believe that women have the capacity to make an outfit out of a curtain as well.
Men are asked to stand in a queue outside every party. But for women, it is always 'ladies first.'
