Actually, if you reversed the Man-Woman thingy here, that would be my husband --the 'I don't care/know what to eat'
He's the picky one....
So, I just go with the flow and whatever makes him happy, is good with me

All he and I ever talk about is football, beer and hot car's... he only mentions the divorce while the refs were moving the first down marker... then we were back to talking about important stuff like football beer and hot cars....
Honest question: Is that really the way men are with their friends?
Honestly, I am totally shocked and actually saddened if that is true. Having such a superficial relationship with my friends would feel so fake and trivial. Like you would have no one to emotionally bond with.
Would this man just be trying to act tough? As in, he is secretly dying on the inside over the divorce but doesn't want to come across as weak and emotional in front of his 'bud.'
Yes, I know men's emotions are not as extreme as ours but I never believed the myth that men were totally emotionally vacant either. Having friends that just talk about sports, cars, and beer would bore me to death and is why I don't hang out with women who just want to talk about shoes, kids, and soap operas.
ETA: I am so fascinated by this I am tempted to make a new thread.
