5 Things Men Should Handle On Their Own

Little Things Men Should Do That Mean A Lot

There’s an old saying that goes, “A man can work from sun to sun, but a woman’s work is never done.” No doubt it was penned by a woman, but who better to know all the little things women do that sometimes get taken for granted. And no doubt at one time or another we’ve all heard women lament about the things they wish men could handle on their own but don’t.

Let’s Take a Poll

I didn’t want to be biased in my research on this topic by relying on my own experiences or asking only women what they wish their men could handle on their own, so I asked men as well. Almost as expected, women came up with examples immediately, and even though I only asked for one example per person, women were often anxious to offer more. Then I asked men what they thought were things they could handle on their own but just don’t. Men were a little slower on the draw. Perhaps it was a stretch for men to view things from a woman’s perspective, but most pulled through and might I add, some even showed a hint of acknowledgement and even gratitude.

The Top 5 Hit List

Maybe some of these sound petty, but I picked the things that women wish men could handle on their own. These are the things men do over and over again and are therefore the most exasperating. Listen up men, because here’s what’s on your ladies’ minds:

Dirty Laundry

Put your dirty laundry in the laundry basket. Women have trouble figuring out this weird phenomenon. Men seem to drop their clothes where they take them off, often leaving a trail from the couch to the foot of the hamper. Apparently it’s getting things into the actual hamper that seems to be the challenge.

Do you feel like you do everything for your partner, but get nothing in return? Psychic Moriah ext. 5820 can help you even things out.

Making Appointments

Even men admitted that this is something they could “probably” handle on their own, but often don’t. If a man broke his arm, he’d find a way to work with the other one before making an appointment at the doctor. Okay, that may be an exaggeration, but you get the point.

Remembering Special Days

When it comes to birthdays, anniversaries and even holidays, men seem to need women to remind them that some special day is approaching. It’s time to put that iPhone calendar to work, fellas. Perhaps if births or marriages were timed around the beginning of football or basketball season, men would be more apt to remember such important days and women might be relieved of their calendar duties, but life doesn’t seem to work that way—ever.

Wondering what you should get them for their birthday? Psychic Trinity ext. 5275 knows what they’d like.

Knowing What Their Partner Likes

Let’s use gifts for an example here. One woman who has been married to the same man for 30 years told me that she likes jewelry—preferably yellow gold. For the first 10 years of her marriage she would remind her husband that her birthday was approaching (see above) and he would run out at the last minute and buy her something—silver or white gold. He liked it; she didn’t. She would inevitably return the gift (another thing men don’t handle on their own) and buy herself something she liked. By year 11 she just decided to skip the reminders, buy her own gift, wrap it and then unwrap it in front of him and say, “Thank you dear, it’s just perfect.”

Doing Things Without Being Reminder Over and Over Again

I’ve seen it time and again and still men never seem to get it. If she hates taking out the garbage or cleaning out the garage and a man knows that these things are on his to-do list, then don’t make her ask you to do them over and over again—just do it. When a man procrastinates, a woman feels obligated to remind him. After a few rounds, she begins to feel unheard or disrespected and then the man labels her a nag. How is that fair?

Men, your women do plenty of stuff on a daily basis to make life comfortable and more pleasant, and they do them all without reminders or without being asked. Give her the same respect and comfort in return and you’ll avoid a lot of unnecessary tension and resentment. Just handle things on your own and make life more pleasant for both of you.

    Thanks LJ

    Great site, great articles I believe women and men are just as bad and good as each other lol !

    why then do women & young women leave used cups in a store?
    shopping does not mean you leave your trash for someone else to pick
    also if one is trying on shoes, clothing – pick it up & put it back
    not on the floor

    Dear Scott and Sal: Single much? LOL No one should “need” anyone – people should be together because they want to be. Take it in the spirit in which is was meant – it’s all in fun!

    Dear Tee: I’ve probably never met your husband, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t met men like him. LOL

    Dear Rex: I’m sure you won’t have to wait long – the scales always get evened. But just like the chicken and the egg, one had to come first. This time ladies first. You’ll have your day.

    Chrissi: You and your MIL are just from two different times. I know it’s difficult, but it’s all done from love. Extended family is important. Just tell your MIL that you appreciate her and tell your son to listen to his mother and clean his room. Good luck.

    Dear Marc: No bloke-bashing here, just an appreciation for the women who tirelessly do everything for us all. I am quite certain that with the start of Father’s Day (US) you’ll see plenty of appreciation for the blokes – no jokes. We know men and women both rock!

  8. Marc from the UK

    Yep I can and do all of these, surely its normal, are we bashing blokes again CF ?

    Let’s see an article like this about ladies lol

    well- if I don’t do it- it won’t get done in my house we lived with my mpther in law as we couldn’t get a place of our own -ma in law used to allow the men to treat her like a skivvy, when I tried to get my son to be a bit more independent and clean his own room, she just took over same with looking after his washing- even in the kitchen if they cook- I have to clean the kitchen afterwards-or it doesn’t get done- I even went on strike to make a point- it didn’t even make a difference, I must have some Virgo somewhere in my chart because I am uncomfortable if things are not just right – As a sun-sign Aquarius with Capricorn moon and Scorpio Rising I thought I’d be more laid back

    I would like to add that men should also pick up after dropping, leaving or just forgetting things of theirs. It is very disrespectful for anyone to leave a mess for someone else to clean.

  11. Rex

    Now that we have this article, I’m waiting to read the one about the little things that women could do for themselves that men have to do for them. What’s that list going to be like?

    Thanks Paige. Just goes to show that little things do mean a lot. They can change the dynamic of a relationship.

  14. Paige

    I like this list you came up. Grown men should be responsible for themselves and not expect their significant others to babysit or take care of them all the time. Thanks for sharing!
