    probably because as I've discovered already,

    understanding men begins by understanding myself... Who would have thought this would be the most challenging part...!

    Actually I Think I Do ...

    I do understand men.  I understand that there are differences between us.  We don't always see things the same way.  We are wired differently.  This is natural. I also understand that there are more similarities than there are differences.  This is...

    Switched Roles Still Confused

    Yup my man and I have a swap of roles. He's the first to cry, the first to beg usually while I am always saying hurtful things or brushing things off without so much as a thought but since I've been pregnant I have become the girl and he the guy- I thought this would make things...

    They Say The Same Thing About Us

    If we understood each other there would be less talking and fighting so it would be both good and bad

    Martians!

    I'm a Venusian! Yes, because I'm a woman! Men are sometimes very black and white in their attitudes. This can be frustrating, when reason isn't pursued. I like men, I like what they do to my body. I'll always need a man! I'll always live my father!

    A Little Help Understanding Men

    Obviously the two (m/f) were created for living as a couple. They each compliment the other and are complete only when that special one is found and marry. No one is complete by themself. The woman's mind is like a pot of spaghetti noodles and quite busy multi tasking and...

    I don't think I will ever understand anyone.

    Really what drives a persona regardless of gender to do the things they do. Sometimes I don't even understand myself. I guess some self reflected is needed. Maybe we are not meant to understand each other, for if we understood everything where would the amazement and...

    Shouldn't It Be The Other Way Around?

    Missing....basic Information?

     A recent survey concluded that a startling number of men don't know basic information about their partners. The results were definitely surprising, and if I'm honest I felt for these long suffering women whose husbands didn't know things such as their eye colour or date...

    Ok, I want you to understand us

    so here's what you need to know. These are the basics and won't apply to every man or situation but I think these general rules can be applied affectively. Since the beginning of time we men have been cast in the role of provider and protector. In terms of human evolution this...
