Well, hell, that seems reasonable.

People using any kind of excuse (rather than genuine reason) to behave like an asshole is, well, assholey behaviour.

And sometimes we can't. Well, you could. But you'd be in crippling pain, so it's preferable not to. I'm thinking that counts.

Damn straight. Be a bitch and then apologise for being a bitch when you feel sorry, but if it's not a pms thing then don't put it on that. It's just chickening out of it. I think that's what you're trying to say, and I have to agree.

I have to say, I'm one of the lucky ones. I don't get a lot of pain at all, and none of my friends can ever tell. Or maybe that's a bad thing. Maybe I'm just a grumpy beyatch all the time. [crazy]

Bit of a thorny issue though.

There ARE lot of asshats that think it's *all* BS, and *always* an excuse to be a bitch.

If people are thinking that's what you're saying then it's understandable that they're gonna go against you.

But I reckon it wasn't. [thumbsup]

Sorry if someone else already suggested the blindingly obvious, the whole thing was TL;DR. (That's probably me being difficult owing to the fact that I possess a uterus.)

Share a sitter. You drop kids at her house, she drops kids at your house. One sitter needed.

Oh wait, that was a really logical suggestion for someone who operates purely on emotion. I am going to go watch Oprah and cry now.

Why do women feel the need to apologize for this? Whose definition of sane are we using? You don't see black people apologizing for their complexion or men apologizing for their body hair or Asian people apologizing for the shape of their eyes. So why do women apologize for their estrogen and offer up a bashful "I'm sorry about my hormones."?


Quit apologizing for biology.

Edit: WTF dead thread. And it was a) TL;DR a second time and b) surprisingly forgettable.

Tiroth, buddy... a little favor please?

Check the date on the last post in a thread before you jump in and comment. If it's a couple months old, and fairly mundane - let it go. Otherwise someone around here is liable to accuse you of 'necroposting'. Why? Because that's what you're doing.

Don't missunderstand. This is not a flame message. (Flame messages look more like this here:  - )

One in while is fine, especially when you have something to contribute.

Just think about it, okay. [Big Grin]

There would appear to be many necroposts today. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

?!! Are you single? That's one of the best things I've ever heard a man say.
[Smile] Wait, you are a man, aren't you? [ohwell] Anyway, good post, good point. [thumbsup]

1. They are shy and don't do a good job of approaching women or making interest in them known.

2. They have low self esteem and disbelieve it when women give indications that they are interested.

3. They are oblivious and don't notice when women are interested.

4. They have a set of criteria that they desire in a partner and haven't found those things yet.

5. They aren't interested in a relationship at the given point in time.

I'm sure there are more, but I think those cover the main ones.

And no, I'm not a man. Or single, either.

Actually, FS, I think you've pretty much summed it up.

There are plenty of men with those attitudes (me, for example), but we tend to be the "friends", not the romantic interests.

Ironically, women seem to crave some form of abuse in a relationship, so they seek out the "bad boy" type. If a guy treats them like crap they lap it up, and when it goes horribly wrong, they come to the "friend" for a shoulder.

I was (and am) a shoulder to many, male and female. I'm also now happily married to the one woman who decided that she wasn't going to put up with that sort of crap any more.

All women go through the bad boy thing. Then we grow up, and want someone who gives us everything we need, not just the thrill of the bad.

Okay, I'm generalizing, but that's me anyway.

I married a bad boy, lived with another. I can't see myself going down that road again.

There are lots of men who date empty-headed hotties and good-looking gold-diggers and then can't figure out why they are unsatisfied or unhappy. And do it all over again.

For women (and men maybe?), on some level, I think often it's low self-esteem that they don't recognize as such. It's not just being attracted to "bad boys." It's subconsciously not feeling worthy of the decent ones.
