Men believe that women are complicated beings. Females have certain habits and practices which never fail to puzzle men who observe them. Some men can't figure out why women need hundreds of products to clean themselves in the bathroom, whereas others are scratching their heads to understand how women don't go bald even after shedding an absurd amount of hair on a daily basis. Well, the now-deleted account of u/Careful_Ride3205 popped a question to men on Reddit which read: "Men of Reddit, what is something us women do that baffles you?" Here is a hilarious string of answers collected from the Reddit thread where men pointed out aspects of women's behavior that confuse the hell out of them. Some of these confessions might seem commonplace and even silly or absurd but they will surely serve you some hearty laughs.

14. They think men are mind readers
