Questions you have always wanted to ask the opposite gender (Part 2)
We find out if guys are willing to date girls taller than them and other misconceptions of the other gender.
With the success of our previous article on questions you’ve always wanted to ask the opposite gender, we decided that we should go for round two.
This time, we went to the streets and asked over 20 youths what questions they were dying to ask the other gender. Here are the answers that our writers Audrey, Azra, Marcus and Ronney have for your most burning questions:
How can the opposite gender get your attention?
Azra: You just have to be nice and sweet. Show us that chivalry isn’t dead and we’ll definitely notice you.
Marcus: There’s no other way to put this…but to attract my attention your personality has to be alluring enough.
First thing you notice about the opposite gender?
Marcus: I can’t speak for the entire male population but for me…eyes. Eyes. EYES.
Ronney: The whole package. How she dresses, how she looks, everything.
Is it true that nice guys finish last?
Azra: Sadly, yes. I’ve dated some very nice guys and I don’t know why, but I just couldn’t be with them. Maybe it’s because there’s no thrill.
Marcus: Yes, speaking from personal experience. However, if the nice guy does not make a move or make his feelings known it’s no longer a nice guy but a stupid guy.
Why are girls so emotional?
Audrey: It’s just feelings. I mean sometimes you just really feel connected to a cause. Personally, I think both genders are equally matched, it’s just that girls express it more outwardly.
Marcus: I think they’re just born that way.
Ronney: Girls are like puzzles that you can’t solve. Ever. So I just think that being emotional is just part of being a female.
Would you date someone taller/shorter than you?
Audrey: I think that if you date a guy smaller than you, it’ll be an ego boost for the guys. But for the girls, it’ll be the complete opposite.
Ronney: I wouldn’t date someone taller than me. I’m 1.83m so if I date someone taller than me, it’ll be like holding hands with a skyscraper. As a guy, I won’t feel good.
How do you tell the difference between nice…and flirty?
Azra: I think flirty guys and girls are generally touchier. But if you can’t tell, just remember that if you have to question yourself about a guy, then he’s a flirty guy.
Marcus: There’s always that fine line between nice and flirty. Because sometimes when trying to be nice it may come off as being flirty, so I don’t really know.
How should you react when the opposite gender cries?
Azra: When a girl cries, always show concern! Give her a hug and let her know that you are there for her.
Ronney: When guys cry, it means that we are really showing our weakness. During that time, I think it’s best to just leave us alone and we will recover.
What's the biggest misconception about your gender?
Azra: Guys always make this assumption that every single time that a girl is upset or angry, it’s because she’s on her period. Not true at all.
Ronney: Girls always assume that we don’t care and that we are insensitive about a lot of stuff that’s going on in their lives but it’s not true.
Best thing about being your own gender?
Audrey: Not having to go for National Service.
Azra: Girlfriends. Cause at the end of the day, even though girls can be dramatic and bitchy, they are the only people that can understand every emotion you go through.
Marcus: Not having periods.
