    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...

    Missing....basic Information?

    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!

    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...

    Men are easy to understand.

    We want sex and emotional connection. We reach out sexually but are passive/receptive emotionally. The problem is that men's sexuality and emotions have been perverted and abused by religious and political elites to control men. The elites want men to be soldiers and tax cattle...

    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 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.

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

    honestly, I don't understand people in general,

    but most of the things men talk about when with other men confuses me or doesn't interest me, especially in this town, why should I care about football, nascar or who screwed who? I'd rather clean my house than listen to that and I hate cleaning!
