The idea for this thread was inspired by this one:
A little help for men trying to understand women!
I think that it would be a great idea for the guys and gals on ATS to try to understand the opposite sex much better. In other threads, it seems the
discussion boils down to giving opinions that can be very biased.
The aim of this thread is to become less ignorant when making comments. I use the term ignorant exactly as it is meant to be used, in a neutral way
not a negative one. Such as I think we should all, guys and gals alike, try to gain a better understanding of the opposite sex so that when we make
comments they have at least some knowledge behind them and not just knee jerk reaction. Not that that is always the case.
I also think we should start by giving your sex, age, and any background information that you feel is pertinent for others to know such as religious
background, political ideology, self esteem, events that may/may not have had an effect on your opinions of the opposite sex, etc., etc.
Obviously, I'll go first...
I am a 28 year old female with know religious background, I am forever learning about spirituality and my ideas/opinions are always subject to change
the more knowledge I gain. I am one of those social liberals/fiscal conservatives, but can seem more liberal than not.
I think there are definitely things about me that can be improved upon but I mostly like myself for who I am. I believe myself to be attractive, but
I'm not "cookie-cutter" pretty, if that makes sense.
I currently am with the man I want to spend the rest of my life with, we've been together 2 years.
My questions are:
1. What is it with guys wanting to "get away" from their girlfriends/wives? My boyfriend does this sometimes and it actually hurts my feelings
because, for me, I never don't want him to be there. I want to experience all of my good times with him so why is it that sometimes guys want to get
the hell away from their girls and have a night of fun without them?
2. Why can't guys ever find what is right in front of their face? Many guys, not just my bf almost always say "but I can't find it" and then I
go to where it should be and where they've already looked and it's RIGHT FLIPPIN' THERE! LOL...I find that so very odd.
3. Why, for the love of God, is it so hard for guys to clean just once in a while? You don't have to do it as much as we do but you would be gawd
dang surprised at how happy it makes your girl when you pitch in just once in awhile. And when you do it without her asking, OMG!, you're just about
guaranteed to get laid that night! Hehehe...
4. This might not apply to all guys but many of the ones I've been around only seem to have fun when they are causing mischief. This boggles my
I'm sure I'll think of others as the thread goes along.
