There are many facts about men that statistics don’t tell us. On average, women live longer than men all over the world, men spend about a year of their lives looking at women, and they lie twice as often as women. In this article, we figured out what is true and what is false.
We at Boredpanda.com decided to tell you about 11 interesting facts. We hope you’ll like them.
1. Men see nightmares as disasters.
Death, health issues, and personal threats are common topics of nightmares for everyone. But scientists from the University of Montreal conducted a study of more than 10,000 dreams and established that there are some differences between what men and women most often see in their nightmares.
Men wake up from nightmares in which they see large-scale disasters, floods, earthquakes, and wars with a feeling of horror. Interpersonal conflicts in nightmares occur in women’s dreams twice as often as in men’s.
2. Men bend over to pick up an object.
Have you ever noticed that men pick up a fallen object by bending over it while women squat? Of course, not everyone does it this way, but this behavior is typical for most people.
Perhaps this is because women often wear uncomfortable clothes (short or tight), which means they have to squat. Men are less likely to be restrained by clothing, so they can easily bend over.
3. Men like women with a healthy weight.
Blanca Ortega-Roldán Oliva from the University of Granada proved in her research that men prefer slim women who look healthy. We don’t mean those who don’t cough or have a fever but those whose weight looks healthy.
This means that men are attracted not by some mythical ideal of beauty or girls of exclusively model appearance who weigh the same as a feather but by women whose weight and growth are correlated normally.
