According to a survey of 500 women by Himitsu no Joshikai (Girls’ Secret Gathering), a project series of the free magazine Hot Pepper, approximately 40% of women stated “their family and friends brag about something that doesn’t resonate with them.” If you and your loved ones experience such differences, the gap might be even bigger with someone of the opposite sex. We surveyed guys’ opinions to introduce to you, “‘What’s So Great about It…?’ 9 Things Women Brag about That Are Incomprehensible to Men.”
1. When you brag about something everyone can do, like “I know how to change a light bulb.”
“I don’t know if you can present yourself as ‘an independent woman’ by bragging about such a thing…” Bragging about something that everyone has to do at least once in their life won’t resonate well with guys. Guys might admire you more if you talk about something they are not very good at, like cooking every day.
