About This Quiz

When it comes to understanding men and women, conventional knowledge says that the women are the ones who are hard to understand, and the guys are simple and easy to figure out. This might be true in some ways, but in others, it is clear that women have no idea at all what is really going on with the man in her life. Sure, women are awfully good at faking it, but in reality, a lot of women are pretty lost when it comes to figuring what is going on in their dude's head.

This happens a lot in particular when it comes to boyfriends. By the time two people are married, the woman has usually figured out pretty well what makes the man in her life tick, and let's be honest, if a woman isn't dating a guy or planning on marrying him, she probably doesn't even want to understand him all that well.

What about you, how well do you understand the man in your life?  Why do they hate shopping so much? Why do they love peeing outside so much? Why will they never honestly answer the question "What are you thinking?" Take this quiz and we'll let you know whether you speak your boyfriend's language.
