    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.

    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...

    And That's A Good Thing....

    I've been married for many, many years, happily I'm told, lol. I can declare one axiom, a wise man knows what he does not know. I know I don't know many things about my wife. The second tenet, unraveling this mystery is most of the fun. I guess for the same reason we like...

    Random Things I Don't Understand About Women

    To me, they're a whole nother species; I'd probably have better luck understanding extra-terresrials or inter-dimensionals for that matter.  I don't get them... their motives, their true feelings, their thoughts, their hormones (especially)... here are just some random...

    I Don't Understand Anybody..

    I don't even understand me let alone anyone else.. men are slightly easier to almost understand than women usually... (their wants are usually about the same across the board) In all honesty, I don't understand anyone except my dogs... I understand them and am grateful...

    What Do You Want to Know?

    I think we're pretty self-explanatory. You know, like an open book and don't ask for much but to be treated with respect and not like rags. Unless you don't understand all these examples I said in this comment of mine here.

    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.

    Here'S A Tidbit For You.

    I posted part of this as a response to someone but I realized this might help other people. I am not saying this is a case for all women, but this is something I know a lot of women can agree with. The "friend-zone" is not necessarily an insult. In my case and with many girls...

    Sorry to all the ladies out there who might've thought I'm saying this in a bad way. Trust me I'm not. I just don't realy understand women. Not like when a guy says, "oh man, she's crazy". No, not like that. I was always taught that I didn't need to understand...

    I love them to death and I know everybody says they don't understand the opposite sex but it's really true for me.  Women are very confusing.  If they like you they pretend not to after a while.  I've seen this happen a lot of times.  A woman seems interested...

    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...

    Does Any One?

    This is an understatement!   I will admit, I have no clue. I have read books and talked to lots of people. I don't think any one understands women. I have had a few that honestly admit that they don't understand women either. If that is the truth, than why do men get in...

    God Planned It That Way.

    I WTK Why Some Women Take So Many Pictures Of Themselves
