Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 138 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Estrogenic Questions

    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...

    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
