    Understanding Women

    I can’t claim ownership or authorship for what follows as it was told to me by a good friend. However, I thing it actually does a pretty good job of explaining the whole man, God, women, deal. ------------------------------ There was a man named John, and he was a good man...

    This is all I know so far.

    .. and it sucks.. "Since men are [primarily] the chosen in the mating dance, they have to be more aware of reality than do women. If men ignore reality, they risk involuntary celibacy. If a woman looks attractive (which is most of them during their prime fertile years), she can...

    Ok i'm going to try and say everything i know

    from women so far... If someone feels insulted i'm sorry, it's not my goal to be rude, just my random attempt to explain something i will never be able to see but from the outside. So feel free to show me where i'm wrong. I love women, i think i'll never find something that...

    Some of my "sisters" are hurting because they say they are not respected by men. They cry that they are not treated like Ladies, but then some of them act like beasts. If you want Love you can't expect to be loved if you have NO respect for anyone but yourself...

    My girlfriend goes to college 8 hours away from

    home. She had to stop short of home to do a little research for a class. So I met her there. We stayed the night in that city. I asked her if she wanted to stay tonight as well, she said she'd have to talk to her family. So this morning, I asked her again (I kind of need to know...

    Estrogenic Questions

    I think it's a conspiracy. Women are really robots and they're internally shifting their own mind's without being aware of it externally (think subconscious and conscious) in order to confuse their prey. You ask what are their prey? Mostly men. Some seem to enjoy a smaller food...

    A female friend makes little to no effort to

    engage in our friendship, yet tells me to "not give up on her" when I start doing the same. I don't understand this girl. She wants the benefits of my friendship but doesn't make the effort. I find this toxic.

    Thought This Was Funny

    There's a book I found at the bookstore entitled, "What Men Know About Women."  I was curious so I flipped through the pages.  The whole book was blank lol.  I know that's not true I just thought it was funny.

    Why is it that me as a guy cannot talk to other

    girls. But my girlfriend can talk to other guys and everything is spose to be lovely? I have no problem with her talking to other guys, why can't she feel the same about me and other girls? Why is there always a double standard.

    The Feminine Mystique

    What’s up with me here is, despite meandering this pocket of the earth for 40 years now, I don’t relate to the feminine mystique very well. This is nothing new. As a teenager, I became enthralled by another T.V. icon, Phil Donahue, godfather of the daytime...

    15 Things Women Wish That Men Knew About Us

    Before I start, I'm not trying to stereotype anyone, it's just in general. 1. When we have a problem, we want you to listen. We were gifted with two ears and one mouth. Don't try to fix it, most of the time by the time we're done ranting we got it all figured out. 2. Do not...

    I WTK Why Some Women Take So Many Pictures Of Themselves
