    Idk

    i don't get why my husband has such a hard time understanding my feelings.  i know that he is able to gauge other women's emotions and needs (for example, his mom), but when it comes to me -- he just is insensitive.  even if i am brought to tears by him, he treats...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Asking For Your Number...

    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!
