10. Men get drawn into things. If you talk to your man while he is focused on something and he doesn't respond stay calm, it's just how we are. Why not try walking up to him and putting your hand on his shoulder to get his attention. It will work.
:-) I like that - that’s a useful tip
but I’m curious - is this really a man thing? Do other men see this as a real guy thing? I can become completely focused on things too - so, I wonder

[11. Men sometimes don't understand why you are mad at them.
here’s the thing - we sometimes (sometimes) don’t know why we’re mad at you
and sometimes - we’re not even mad at you - we’re just mad
I know that doesn’t help at all

The "Toys" aspect is absolutely true.. my computer burned out and for me it was the end of the World as all I have now is my phone and a dinosaur of a laptop.. she just doesn't understand..
# 5, 22, 7 (also loosing socks haha), 18 are my favs...
And of course if it wasn't mentioned..
Us men like to think ourselves as manly men who control every aspect of our world. We are masculine and invincible.. until we get sick. Then we have to be treated like big babies .. it's quite pathetic sometimes.

Anytime we park on the street we have to do a Chinese Fire Drill in the middle of the road so I can parallel park for her. Otherwise the car ends up half way in the road 5ft from the curb .. possibly facing the wrong direction, you never know.. (and if you're wondering why I don't just drive to begin with, I CANNOT stand back seat drivers! .. So I absolutely refuse to drive her car with her inside at ANY time.. I told her one day to shut up or drive, well she didn't stop so now she drives. Been protesting this way for about 8 months. In my car I can drive, if she tries to backseat navigate I turn the radio up and say it's MY car. And if we get lost, which we sometimes do, I blame mapquest.
It's not that guys hate asking for directions.. we just hate a constant nagging voice in our right ear the entire time we are trying to drive and figure out where we are!
To clarify as my girl may be an exceptional case. She has this anxiety issue.. lets say we are driving down the highway on I-5 .. busy highway, and I will be driving along and she will suddenly scream and say something like "WATCH OUT!" ..... a truck just merged from the onramp to the lane to my left. I was in my lane, he was in his lane, there was absolutely no potential collision. Doesn't matter, she still screams. Or if cars break in front of me she does a dramatic grabbing of the "oh ** bar" and one hand on the dash, and I get a lecture on proper breaking distance.

Cook for him: doesn't have to be anything special.
I am a 51 white female, divorced after 30 yrs, 5'7" plus size, attractive, hazel eyes, brunette, large breasts. 1 man, 1 lover, but very good. What I am looking for is a man who would like to get me back into things, pay for my hair, nails, buy me clothes, whatever I need. I work and have a staple home just need help with the extras. Open for relationship, or whatever you desire. You wont be disappointed.
