    Dunno

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I don't understand when I tell someone to "stop

    it" I actually mean KEEP DOING IT. Or when I say "noooo" it means YES. I think many know of this type of behaviour hahaha

    I Don't Understand..

    ..my own gender myself. Why are there so many girls out there going all melodramatic and being so sensitive? And why want to cause drama and wtv? I find that very troublesome I much rather have a quiet life.

    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.

    And That's A Good Thing....

    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...

    Not Being Rude Here...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    God Planned It That Way.

    I think in his infinite wisdom he realized that it would take only a few thousand years for the world to become over populated if He didn't put in some controls. If you're familiar with the Bible, you know that in Genesis we go from nothing to Adam and Eve with family in just a...

    I WTK Why Some Women Take So Many Pictures Of Themselves

    Estrogenic Questions
