10 Whys Guys Have Always Wanted to Ask Girls

In the grand scheme of things, boys and girls will never be exactly alike. Here's why.

Boys and girls are different in a plethora of ways. From names to clothing, and even to how either is treated by society. This leads to many inevitable misunderstandings between the two and like any other guy, I cannot also comprehend many of the things girls decide on doing. So here are 10 whys that my friends and I have always wanted to ask girls:

1. Why do you wear heels? Clearly, most of you don't like wearing them. Sure it makes you look taller, but if you girls keep taking them off at the open dance floor during prom, there must be something wrong. We really don’t get the point of trying to put up with wearing heels. Aren’t your dresses uncomfortable enough?

2. Why do you own so many pairs of shoes? So those shoes you bought on sale half a year ago, how many times have you used them? Twice? Yeah, we figured.

3. Why do you think you're fat when you're not? Guys don't know how to respond to "does this make me look fat?" without being offensive in any way. If we say yes, well that’s mean. If we say no, you'll doubt us and say we're lying. Sure, you may not have Vanessa Hudgens's abs, but unless your doctor specifically asked you to cut down on those fries, you're probably fine.

4. Why do you take hours to get ready? Do you really have to take THAT long to prepare? The movie starts in 30 minutes!

5. Why can't you just decide? It's really simple: On a date, guys want to know what you like. So if we ask, just answer straight up, please. "I'm fine with anything," makes everything all the more complicated.

6. Why do you "love" everybody and everything? "Hey, I love that!" "I love your [insert type of clothing here]!" or "OMG, I super love her!" are common expressions we hear every day. There's nothing wrong with "loving" everything, it's just that overusing it kind of makes the word a little bland. Want us to lend you a Thesaurus?

7. Why is it okay to be caught wearing a two-piece but not... um... underwear? It's just a little puzzling and interesting. The difference is only the material, right?

8. Why do you usually go for the bad boy? We see all these tweets about your qualifications for a guy, and yet you pick the one who doesn't fit any of your qualifications at all.  Then when things go wrong, you come crying back to the nice guy you friend-zoned. This makes absolutely no sense.

9. Why do you play hard-to-get? You like the guy and you know he likes you, so why pretend otherwise? As much as he's willing to wait for you because you're worth it, you're only discouraging him from pursuing you by prolonging what you've been wanting all this time.

10. Why do you use "I'm a girl" as an excuse? Okay, we get it. Girls and boys are different. However, why is this an excuse to make your surprise attitude changes less heartbreaking? Boys have feelings, too! *runs to the corner and sobs

"The paradoxical idea of attaining a happier life and how to withstand these beliefs."

The Revolting Truth About Happiness by Theserenefae

If people ask you about your vision of a happier life we automatically envision ourselves having more money, true love, a better job, Instagram-worthy vacations, etc. But let me break this to you this, According to Dr. Laurie Santos, Professor of Psychology at Yale University and the voice behind The Happiness Lab podcast, "Most of the goals we think would make us happy do not really make us happy." And why is that? Simple, being happy is all in our minds. The human mind ploys us with these lenses on how we envision ourselves and our lives to be happy. The perception of "having" or "gaining" is the exact opposite of what will truly make our lives better. So how can we really be "happy"?

• Seek happiness inside you. This is a quintessential reason for our vision of happiness: misconceptions about having a lot of money would make me happy; owning this and that would make me happy; entering a relationship would make me happy. This is not the case, if you want to be truly happy with your relationship, you have to be already happy on your own. If you want satisfaction from others, you have to be satisfied with yourself. And so on.

• Fill that hole righteously We all have that tiny hole inside our hearts, tampering it with temporary band-aids. Fill this hole with purpose. Have you ever heard about The Three "M's"— Master, Mission, and Mate? Define who will be your Master, is it God? If that's so, your Mission could be following his words and will. Mate would be the last for they will be the best companion to fulfill your mission. Now hear me out, it is important to do this accordingly. We often times jumble it or invert it which can lead to failures.

• Give gifts to others. The wonderful grace in giving. There’s nothing like the rush of pure joy when you get a chance to give. However, this may not be something that we're used to. But apparently, openhandedness is our soul's true shape. As Eugene Peterson put it, "Giving is what we do best. It is the air into which we were born." This doesn't necessarily mean we have to give away our stuff but we can also present love, kindness, gratefulness, etc. in our own simplest ways to anyone such as giving time, encouragement, helping hand, or even forgiveness. Try giving and you'll receive inconceivable gifts in return.

• Savor moments. Savoring deeply intensifies our positive emotions while doing something that we love the most by simply stepping outside of the experience to review and appreciate the moment. You can practice this by having a delicious meal, reading a good book, or any activity that you enjoy and love. It can also be enhanced by sharing these experiences with others, appreciating such amazing moments, or staying present the entire time.

• Choose to Love Deeper Today's society relentlessly pressures all of us to have this "perfect" lifestyle such as pursuing careers that drain you, finding value through virtual world and purchases, letting achievements become your whole identity, and yet after all that you still feel empty and failure inside. Consumption is just skin deep—a shallow perception of happiness. Deep life brings the best out of us and others. It is about nourishing what you already have, focusing on the relationships than material wealth, becoming vulnerable at times, and being self-aware.

• Understand that Sufferings and Pain are part of Human Being. Always remember that loneliness and sufferings are inevitable. That is completely how life goes. You may be happy for a moment or a month but sooner or later great tribulation will start to kick in. Combat despair with graciousness. Count all the blessings that you have (and will have in near future, claim it!) by writing it down on a piece of paper or typing on your phone. Viola! an instant boost for happiness. We all know the fact that this superficial happiness won't work, but why do I keep on wanting? I already have all this wisdom about how to be happy for ages, but why can't I apply it to my own life?

First, you have to understand that simply knowing doesn't change your behavior. Care to realize that all the tips that I have mentioned are all verbs? Because at the end of the day, it is all about how you choose to be happy and initiate actions towards success. Know, reflect, visualize, believe, and do something about it. All of these are Actions! This is the secret of all the happiest and most influential people in the world—actions. Furthermore, do know that some of these tips do not work instantly most of the time. It requires a lot of time, motivation, consistency, and effort. I do know it's easier said than done. Take each of them slowly, one step at a time.

If it wasn’t for pain, I wouldn’t be alive. It may sound contradictory, but it’s true. Pain reminds me that I can feel, along with other emotions. Pain reminds me that I can heal, just like how I did in the past. Pain reminds me that I am strong and I can do better. It reminds me that life can be bitter, and it is up to us to make it a little sweeter (or saltier, depending on what the person wants).

With this epiphany, I take pain in a positive light. It’s normal that it can break me and make me want to stay in bed all day, but having someone or something remind me that there is hope is enough. It’s normal that I cry my heart out, but it’s important to remember that there’s a calm after the storm. If it wasn’t for pain, I wouldn’t be who I am now. It has shaped me and how I look at things. It has changed the way I approach circumstances that can challenge me and my beliefs.

Pain, back then, made me cower in the dark. Pain used to be my biggest fear, and I used to do my best to avoid pain. However, I realized that avoiding pain is like avoiding life. Because of how I wanted to protect myself, I closed myself off to people and opportunities. I used to tell myself that “this will end badly”, or “this is going to hurt in the end”. I always focused on how much pain I might endure in the end that I forgot to enjoy the process.

It’s inevitable, you see? Endings, most of the time, may hurt. It’s natural for us to grow attached to someone or something, and their disappearance might bring us a lot of pain. However, one should always remember that the pain is a reminder of how close you became, how many memories you had. If it wasn’t for pain, life would be pointless. If it wasn’t for pain, we would be nothing.
