    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

    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...

    The Modern Man

     Another little tale written with humour in mind! Is there really such a thing as the modern man? I’ve been researching this the only way I know how, asking all my girlfriends if a) he exists, b) do they have one, c) or have they met one? The resounding answer is no...

    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...

    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!

    I think I understand them perfectly well

    actually. They want it all, without giving too much. They want every woman they take a liking to, but they want those women to only want him. They want power, money, and respect, but they don't feel like they should have to earn it. **** them.

    probably because as I've discovered already,

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

    that you don't understand me. Women lie but complain about men lying! No man can sleep with a woman without a woman sleeping with a man so men are not more sexually active than women , except maybe that they ********** more (maybe). Men generally like the look of a woman's body...

    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...

    They want this so you give in.

    Then they want another so you give in again. And if you give everything they like, they'll get bored of you. Wtf!
