I am so excited to get back with this blog. On top of all the holiday craziness, my husband built me a new computer so now I can take care of this site with out my computer crashing! Yay!
So, all that being said, let's get started. As a disclaimer, in this post (And probably the next few posts.), I am going to be using words like puberty, hormones, and sex. Get all your giggles out now girls. The other disclaimer is that I am going to spout out a lot of information and I am going to generalize it. What that means is that when I say, "Guys do this..." it means most guys, not necessarily all guys. So just remember that I am not saying every single person is the way I am going to talk about.
I want to talk about guys. See, I know tons of teenage girls personally, and I have talked to tons of teenage girls online (Shout out to all my email friends!) and almost all of them have one thing in common. They don't understand why teenage guys are such "jerks". Well, I am going to do my best to shed some light on this mystery and help you all out a little bit.
First of all, I want to say that not all teenage guys are jerks. Most of them, are just young and immature. I don't mean that in a rude way at all. Hear me out. Guys and girls mature very differently when they are going through puberty. For starters, girls usually start going through puberty before guys do. Girls usually start changing physically before guys and they almost always start maturing emotionally and mentally before guys do. That means that while you girls are ready to date a boy and be in a meaningful relationship, those boys are still thinking about pizza and video games (That's a little bit of a joke, but you get the idea.).
Let me explain further. Girls are emotionally wired. That means that we thrive on relationship and communication. Why do you think that we write each other notes and we love to sit around at sleepovers and just talk? Girls generally make decisions based off of their emotions and what they are thinking about. So, if we want to date a guy, it's usually because we want a meaningful, romantic, fairy tale relationship.
Guys on the other hand are visually wired. What that means is that they react to the things they see in front of them at that moment. For example, a teenage guy sees a pretty girl, and he might think he wants to be in a relationship with her because of his attraction to her. He isn't thinking about the future, he isn't even thinking about next week, let alone a meaningful relationship. The other thing, is that there is a chance that the next pretty girl he sees, will stir up the same reaction in him.
So that right there should hopefully explain a lot to you about why guys always seem like jerks. I am definitely going to elaborate on this subject in the next few days, so check back.
