    Why Does It Work This Way?

    So, there's a guy that I've been off and on with for about five years. When I say off and on I mean that we dated for a few months, have a history, and in between relationships have hooked up now and again. He's a great guy and can be really sweet and considerate, etc. However...

    Perfect Date..then Poof!

    So I ask the perfectly suitable, nice guy in the band I've just joined to come to see Herb Albert and Lani Hall with me if he'd like to buy the extra ticket I have. He thinks about it a few days and does buy the ticket. All is plutonic and that's fine with me, although I think...

    I Don't Get Them Either

    Men  a confused bunch . They don't know what they want, when they want it and how important it is to them. I'm married but cannot, will not live with any man. I guess I'm very independant and strong willed. I've known of only one that I could reside with, he was my ONE AND...

    Been seeing the same dude

    since August, and at the end of October, we made it clear we were 'exclusive'. Since then, I've seen things and felt things that have led me to believe he isn't being honest with me. On one of our dates in the middle of November, I saw him using Tinder (where we met). He wasn...

    Why is it that men like the chase

    if a woman so much? Then when they land the woman and she would do anything for them they lose interest?

    Men Are Like Bananas

    They are only ripe enough to be enjoyed for such a short amount of time. First, when they are bright and fresh, you can just take them as they are. They travel easily, get along well with others - see one banana and there's never one too far away, and they don't require too...

    My Odd Love Affair With Men

    I am not a traditional beauty, I am older, curvy (the amounts of curves have varied over time), black (well mostly chocolate), and attractive but I don't think I am drop dead gorgeous. Men have always behaved rather oddly around me and I have never quite figured out why. They...

    Why do men ask for your number and then not call?  I would rather they didn't ask because then I wouldn't get my hopes up!

    I Can't Read Your Mind..!

    Sometimes I feel like men just expect us to know what they're thinking. Like they expect us to know what they want, and how they feel. Well, I don't know about you, but I am not superwoman! I have no idea what's going on in guys' heads. I get so many mixed messages and I'm not...

    Sometimes I wish there was a handbook of do's

    and don'ts in a relationship. It seems like everything is going great and then from out of the blue something minor happens but it puts a huge kink in the next few events. I feel I'm old enough I should catch these things before they happen, but I don't. You would also think...

    I Know What Freud Would Say

    Freud, were he still alive, would tell me that I don't understand men because I lived with my mother as a teenager and had almost all female friends.  Mind you, I think Freud was usually full of sh*t. However, I do think being surrounded by women had an impact on my ability...

    I met a wonderful man I thought he was my soul

    mate, I thought we would be together forever. I've spent most of the last 4yrs waiting for him. He suffers from severe depression I know that's really tough but surely he would be better off with me with love and support. He chose to stay with his friend 200 miles away. We have...

    Okay so I'm just wondering,

    what causes men to hate women? I'm not saying all men do, I'm talking about the really off the reservation crazy chauvinists. Not like, 'make me a sandwich' chauvinism. "Women are all crazy ****** who take advantage of men and feed on their life energy" chauvinism.
