For any Cosmo readers out there, this article may seem rather familiar. I love love love reading Cosmo and of course stumbled across this fabulous article and felt as though I should share it. The actual article, Things Women Do Better Than Men, was written by Christine Griffin. Props to this woman as her article had me smiling from ear to ear. So below is the list of all the little, and big, things women just do so much better than any men out there. I may have added in my own spunk, but each numbered reason is taken from Cosmo..enjoy!
1. We’re cleaner
Let’s be real, how many showers do you take compared to your boyfriend? Doubled…maybe even tripled the amount?! Yeah, I understand. Our rooms are cleaner, our hair is cleaner, our desks are cleaner, and just about everything else is just flat out cleaner! San Diego State University did a study on desks across the US and found that women’s desks are cleaner! I am constantly Clorox wiping down my stuff, you?
2. We interview better
An interview is all about first impressions, is it not? A stress study was conducted and women just rule in the world of “let’s see who can handle the stress”. Pretty awesome if you ask me. Women are always prepared for a presentation of any sort. Sure we freak out beforehand but as soon as that door opens, the floor is all ours.
3. We evolve hotter
“After following more than 2,000 people through four decades of life, the study showed that attractive women had 16 percent more children than average-looking chicks and that beautiful people are 36 percent more likely to have a daughter as their firstborn” I don’t really think I need to say more but what the heck. DAMN!
4. We survive car accidents more often
I figured this was just to the fact that men’s accidents are more severe due to the speed of their driving but this “reason” didn’t have much information on Cosmo. So no boys, it isn’t us “nagging” to tell you to wear your seatbelt and slow down…we’re just looking out for ya!
5. We’re better at seeking comfort
Yes, we are very emotional but 53% of women like to talk through a problem where as only 29% of men do. It’s not always great to bottle in your feelings, but clearly women are way ahead on that bandwagon!
6. We’re more recession proof
A little strange to read but it’s actually true! “According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 80 percent of those who have lost their jobs since December 2007 have been men. Ouch. This could be because male-dominated fields have been hit the hardest, like manufacturing and finance. That really sucks…but hey, maybe it’s time more men became nurses and educators.”
7. We graduate college more often
Think about a typical Thursday night or Friday 8am class…how many men are there compared to women? Women are so much more driven! We not only enroll more than men but we also graduate with a degree and even graduate in a shorter amount of time. Nerds are sexy you know.
8. We eat healthier
Men are always heading towards the heavy beers, Cheetos, and frozen pizza rolls…women are heading towards the Skinny Girl Vodka, celery with dip, and salads. The University of Minnesota conducted this healthy eating study and found women are just healthier in their choices of foods to chow down on.
9. We have stronger immune systems
I laughed at this one since my boyfriend has been known as one to claim how “strong” his immune system is. Well, he’s at home with mononucleosis! Our estrogen gives women that extra boost when fighting off an infection. And men thought a little bit of estrogen in the room was bad….
10. We live longer
Women take YOLO to a whole new meaning according to the New England Centenarian Study which showed that the world’s population of 100+ is 85% women. YOLO!
11. We’re better managers
See, I knew I was making the right choice when I declared Management as my major! ‘In a recent Daily News article, management expert Jay Forte said, “It’s a very service-oriented economy [right now], so you need employees to be motivated. Women are better connectors than men and more astute about knowing how to activate passion in their employees.”‘
12. We invest better
Take that Shark Tank. That shows needs more women! Women are more careful when looking at investment decisions-our conscientious minds turns a better investment return at a whole 18% compared to men’s weak 11%…BAM!
So there it is. Women are just better than men! Okay, let’s not be too harsh. If it wasn’t for the men in our life, who would fix the pool filter when it breaks? Who would kill the spider crawling on our bedroom ceilings? Men are pretty awesome and a lottttt of them are very successful! I have no idea where I would be without my grandpa, father, uncle, cousin, best friends, boyfriend, or dog. They are the most important and influential men in my life and I bet they beat out all the other men in the world! There will always be a battle of the sexes so what kind of girl will pass up the opportunity to throw a little bit more fire into the flames? Certainly not me! After all, it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt…
