    Can Someone Please Help Me Understand

    Okay heres the thing: When you say I love a guy are they supposed to get mad? I didn't think caring too much was a bad thing. Am I wrong though? I have known him 5 years and recently told him I loved him and he completley blew up on me. I don't understand what I did to screw up...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    How can a man who seems to be the sweetest

    and kind hearted person pretend to be something he is not. I don 't understand what he would gain from decieving someone. He can pretend to be a good person but in realitiy he is not.

    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!

    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...
