    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...

    I don't want to. Men are a mystery.

    I like that they are different. I don't want to know what goes on in their head. No. The intrigue is alluring. Keep me guessing!

    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

    Men talk about not being able to understand

    women. But it's because they don't try. Men are the truly confusing ones

    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...

    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.

    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!

    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...
