12 Things Men Don't Notice About Women

by Vanessa Ryan

Men are notoriously bad at picking up on small details. It's not because we don't care, it's because we're not paying attention to what's going on. Don't hold it against us.

Here are 12 things you shouldn't get mad at us for not noticing.

A New Purse It's like the old thing you put a bunch of stuff in, except a different color. As far as we're concerned, all purses look the same.

Shaved/Unshaved Legs Unless you're coming at us like Sasquatch we probably can't tell you have a little bit of stubble on your legs.

No Makeup Women never believe this, but sometimes we don't notice you're not wearing makeup. We really don't. And then we get yelled at for lying. This is one of life's greatest mysteries.

New Shoes We never look below anyone's knees. This is a fact.

Cellulite Everyone is more critical of their own body. Personally, I don't think I've ever seen cellulite, but the countless times I've been called a liar tell me otherwise.

Cat Hair on Your Clothes This would require us to notice things like "details."

A New Haircut Unless you shaved your head, we're not going to realize your hair is half an inch shorter.

Highlights It's your regular hair but with a few strands of color. At least give us a hint before getting mad.

New Glasses All glasses are the same. Sorry, everyone.

Circles Under the Eyes Sorry for getting lost in the vast and beautiful wilderness that are the deep pools of longing also known as your eyes and not noticing that you look kind of tired. HOW AM I IN TROUBLE NOW?

A New Shade of Lipstick Listen, there is the color "red lipstick." That is the only color of lipstick I'm aware of. I don't know what all these other colors are, but they're not real.

New Jeans We can't even tell the difference between our own jeans, let alone yours.
