Ok.....I've been hearing all the complaining about women. "They are so difficult" "Women are so hard to understand" "Women are to complicated" and, as a woman, I wholeheartedly agree with these statements. I know I'm hard to understand, I'm definitely complicated and I'm probably overly difficult but.......I know men who are the exact same way. Or they are difficult in completely new and different ways. For example, a guy who has been hurt in the past and now won't tell anything to anyone and completely closes out the people he cares about in his life because he's scared. Or how about the guy who keeps you in limbo about a half-way semi kinda sorta relationship that doesn't exist. There are more but I wouldn't want to bore you. The point is.......men are uniquely different from women but they are both difficult in there own way so just get used to it and try and live together in harmony. That is all.

I'm impressed. Most people don't seem to figure that out until they're 25-30 years old. Some never do.

Dating/Love/Fear of being alone makes everyone a little crazy. Has nothing to do with genitalia and everything to do with being human.

What would life be like without crappy relationships? Think of all the soap opera and sitcom writers who would starve without lampreying off our misery? Plus, without the jerks and bastardos the good relationships wouldn't stick out enough and get appreciated for what they are.

And they do happen, really. I know you don't believe me. There's actually no reason why you should. But they do. So nyaaah!

Too true. How dreadful it would be if men were the same as women. [Wink]

I hate to mention this, while we are in soul bearing intense emotional masochism mode, but if you are fairly shallow like me, dating and all that stuff can actually be fun, if that's what you want. Laughter and silliness are allowed, and worrying and trauma aren't absolutely compulsory.

too true, too true.
But my inability to be serious and need to have laughter and silliness all the time leaves me happy for only short periods of time.

You need some emotional masochism sometimes just to have balance [Smile]

Or a guy who can give you emotional support and what you need to keep you satisfied/happy at all times!

no, I meant that my inability to be very emotional (which only alternates with EXTEMELY emotional behaviour) means that most men I date think that I'm just not that interested, and I can be rather aloof -- especially in the beginnings of relationships.

The general trend is in the beginning, they are looking for constant reassurance that I'm interested and I'm rather aloof, then after a few months they get comfortable and relax and get less, well, lovey... and I miss that and start acting all lovey and emotional... It very rarely works out. At that point I start acting domestic and cook dinners and knit scarves and they freak out and bolt.

I could use a navy-blue scarf. Oooh, and some fingerless gloves! Now that would be teh c00lz.

Chop chop, BA, I need them by winter! [Razz]

I shouldn't talk about love. Longest time I've ever "dated" was a month. I never get to the "I'm used to you phase". [Razz]

I have a slight aversion to such chain restaurants. They all seem so formulaic and predictable. The portions also tend to be HUGE. No wonder so many north americans have weight issues. These restaurants are trying to feed us to death!! Or at least lubricate our innards with a lot of greasy, fried onion blossoms.

(ok, nuff ranting on that.)

I love how people manage to make vegetables unhealthy... spinach dip, fried onions, mashed potatoes with lots of butter and salt... its sick, really.

it's a crying shame to see such fine vegetables totally adulterated by all that nasty, bad stuff.

Okay, I do get the occasional craving for something really greasy and bad for you (like fries!).
