    So… no matter what the woman is always right? Yeah, that's the key to a healthy relationship. Force the man to build up years worth of resentment. That'll work out nice. Jesus…

      Exactly. The crap looks like it was written to convince men that no matte what they say or do they are always wrong, and that if a women is pissed off that means they are in big trouble, like they are a little kid. WRONG! Sometimes you have to just NOT care. Women will throw fits like babies, scream, and lose control if they don’t get their way. Which is why this article is written they way it is. Forget just about everything you have just read on this page and you will be ok. Women are humans, who make mistakes, and are often wrong. Anyone who tells you different is simply trying to con you. The best thing you can do when it comes to women is have your bullshit detector set on high.

        I am a female unlike most females so I am in agreement about your comment, Sam. I believe that when most females get a man it’s about control. Control isn’t love or respect and that is why most men tend to cheat or feel tempted. There is no point for a woman to be with a man if she is going to play games or try to control him. The way I see it, God gave us free will,therefore, no one has a right to control another when the Almighty God does not control us. We have to treat each other as we would like to be treated It’s that simple.!! Women need to feel confident and secure enough in their relationship to say how they feel without fear things will be over. If you meet a man who is your best friend…he listens to you and gives advice when asked, then that is an amzaing guy. That is my experience. Not all guys are horrible. There are horrible females too and they give the rest of us a bad name.

    Most likely put together by a woman, basically women like to be control freaks and freak out over everything and if we don't want to be in an argumant we have to be ready for service and obey! If ever my relationship would be like this it would be ended fast enough. Only thing we ask women if for a sandwich, and that is where you should be instead of writing up this top ten.

        My father has been happily married for 36 years to the same woman, and his first woman. Even when I was kid, I thought he was whipped. But you have to play the game I saw my dad play many times. He sucks it up, says yes dear, and then does what he wants to do. If she wants you to fix the washer, you say, yes dear, don’t look her in the face, walk towards the laundry room, then once she’s gone do a 360 and walk back to your computer like a boss. If she asks why it’s still broken, tell her you did what you could, but it’s a goner. Life is a game, and you have to play it to win, but look like you’re losing to her. My dad continues to be my hero.
        P.S. If you think this is a man to man advice, no. I am female. FE=iron. male=man. therefore I am iron man.

      Either this person has very bad grammar or English isn’t his first language. It’s an acceptable (interesting, satisfactory, funny, realistic, etc.) list but many (a lot, if if you insist) of the grammar mistakes make it less funny than it could be because one is trying to understand what the heck the author is trying to say.

      My point: If you must criticize grammar, do so grammatically. Additionally, It does not hurt to spell correctly.

      Speaking from experience, married 20 yrs w/2kids, first marriage by the way, I can tell you that women want both sides. They want the fantasy man in the fiction books loaded with romance and gentleman qualities who gush out love, emotions and courtesy; AND they also want to work in the mans world and treated as equal. You simply cannot have both! Yes, I have gonads and put the foot down quite harshly on occasion. Name ONE man or woman who likes to be ‘controlled’, ‘bossed around’, ‘questioned about decisions’, ‘argued with’ or the worst… ‘having an unsolicited point of view which opposes every F’n thing you say’. ? Name one. Man or Woman. See what I mean? It was obvious how many females had responded with snide comments on this subject. Why were they looking at this article one must ask… maybe a hint of truth?

            I agree with you. However, we do like it when we are allowed to function equally in the “man’s world”. We honestly aren’t always allowed that. And we deal ( or we should, because the road to equality will not be complete for a few more decades, unfortunately ) but we do enjoy when a man makes us feel like gold. We’re told every day by the media, critics, strangers and family that we are not and will never be good enough. So yes, any man that can take the time to be our dream once in a while is celebrated. But before you get all uptight, I do agree that equality is the goal and those women out there who expect to be treated like goddesses need to just stop… I live when my man makes my life a little easier by picking his battles with me. On the same note, I can’t expect to be right all the time. I love him so I understand we need to give a little and take a little and only push on things that are actually important. He wants space and I try to give it to him, but there are times I really need him. I need to know he thinks well of me. If I’m expected to make a sandwich, there’s going to be trouble. If I’m asked to make a sandwich, there’s no trouble. I’m a human being just like any woman or man. Both genders need to understand that. Both genders need to stop fighting for dominance. It’ll be a long road, like said, before we’ll all be equal. But I’d like to think I’m on the right road. This article is half right. Women do have another language and flaws. But so do men. :/ they aren’t as straight-forward as they’d have you believe. Or they are hurtfully blunt. Women should stop beating around the subject. Men need to learn to care about who’s feelings they’re stomping on. I’d like for them to take the time to notice when I’m hurting instead of needing a billboard. It makes us feel like we aren’t that important. Anyway, I’m rambling. But I hope you see my point and agree about equality and meeting each other half-way. Take it easy.

    I've never suffered any of these myself, but I've seen others have to deal with the "nothing" phenomena…honestly, women need to get over that. It's incredibly unhealthy to pretend nothing is wrong and say nothing is wrong and then get angry when heir significant other fails to read this as the exact opposite. It's essentially lying, and trapping someone into being the "bad guy."

        Men, however, tend to say nothing's wrong because they genuinely don't want to talk about it. It's just as unhealthy, but they'll go on pretending they're fine indefinitely if it isn't pried out of them. I'm an exception to this, but have observed it more than enough. Women want you to pry and get angry if you don't. Men want to be left alone and get angry if you pry.

            You have a very insulting and selfish attitude, Becky. A “real” HUMAN, male or female, should be able to express themselves openly and should never expect other people to read them like magic. If something happens at work or school to upset you are you going to expect your significant other to know what’s going on when you come home moody and distant? How about if you’re mad at them for an honest mistake they made, which they couldn’t have ever guessed was the wrong thing to do?

            You’re going to die alone with such ridiculously unfair and childish expectations.

            I was married to my first wife for five years and got nothing but pure hell. I was a caring, gentle and worked hard as an equal partner in my marriage. But she cheated every chance she got and didn`t hide the fact. I tried everything to save my marriage, but she wouldn`t hear of it. She eventually left me for another man and to be honest with you I was devastated. I couldn`t understand why she did what she did, but I couldn`t stop her, I don`t believe in forcing someone to do something they don`t want to do. I was not an abusive husband, I never cheated or lied to her. It may sound stupid but I still loved her after very thing she did, it took me a number of years to get over it and to trust woman again. Then I met my current wife, we have been married 16 yrs and have 2 great kids. My relationship with her is great and is built on understanding and mutual respect. Well its been over 20 yrs since I saw my first wife and out of the blue, I got a phone call for the Hospital she was admitted too. It turns out she has a rare disease and needs a bone marrow transplant and it turns out I am a match and I know woman are going to explode over this part. If she doesn’t `get the transplant she will die, so for her to get my bone marrow, I made her sell her house, car and cleaned out all her bank accounts and assets and to give me the money. Hear is the kicker I donated all the money in her name to charity and sent her a picture of me handing all her hard earned money away. I don`t feel bad about it one bit, I actually find it quite funny, moral of the story what goes around comes around, revenge is sweet.

      Or…sometimes women also do not want to talk about it.
      When I say nothing is wrong, either nothing is wrong and your pestering will only make something wrong, or something is wrong and I don’t feel like talking about it. There’s no pretending involved. Maybe your guy friends should just learn a little about body language?

        I’m not talking about “guy friends,” I’m not some kind of idiot “bro” here. I’m referring to how my mostly female friends sometimes treat their boyfriends, husbands or even family members.

        “They should just learn to read body language” goes straight back to my original criticism. What a selfish, ignorant thing to say. OPEN, VERBAL communication is what’s TRULY healthy. Expecting people to read your feelings from what looks like completely ordinary behavior is absolutely unreasonable. If you can only express something in subtle changes to your outward attitude, then you don’t know how to communicate at all, you don’t know how to handle your own emotions and you shouldn’t expect your feelings to be picked up on by anyone, regardless of sex.

          sometimes the body language is a good thing, even if you think that it is self centered. men need to know when to back off, there are signs, you know, but there differrent for each person. if the man acually cares about her, then he will know if she wants to talk about it.

    Women are always right? Hmpf, in my experience women are never right, I always have better arguments. If you meant, women want always TO BE right, then yes, I agree, but I frickin' hate it when women TRY to be right and when I'm being more logical, they just start to yell, another reason why women shouldn't be in politics when they can't keep their cool. Yelling is not a good argument, and these dangerous words, I agree again, women love to use these.

    I must say, nice list, but some things are going a bit too far.

    These words are mostly the reason why I break up with girlfriends, if they can't take my personality, then they should back off.

    This pisses me off so much. For one, almost all of it is untrue. You are putting people into groups based on gender when each person is completely different. I’d like to point out that I say exactly what I mean also. I’d like to point out that I’ve stood up for guys quite often when it comes to these misconceptions. I hate it. I hate the blatant stereotypes and sexism. My parents, I see them and I see two people. The cliche that men hate it when the girlfriend wants to talk during TV is utter BS because my dad and I get in debates during TV all the time, and my mom is the one who gets irritated.
    Also I hate shopping. Many people do hate shopping. I’m not ruthless, vengeful hateful or any of that. And guys are just as likely to win arguments as I am. And I’ve got plenty of other specific examples besides the TV one.
    The upside to this is because I haven’t fallen to these petty things it makes me look like a potentially great girlfriend.

        My wife up and left me a year ago after thirty-two years of marriage. Since that time, I’ve had health problems, a hospital stay, intermittent employment, and yet still can’t recall any time in the last three decades that felt less stressful. I’ve been happier and less stressed during the year since she’s been gone than I have been since 1978.

        And you missed one, the blame game. ME: “What were you doing when the [appliance of choice] [quit working, started smoking, blew up?] HER: “Oh sure! Now you’re trying to make everything my fault!” I was just trying to get information to diagnose and fix the problem. She’d rather concentrate on blame for why it quit or why something failed to work. Logic versus emotion.

      As with most of the lists on this site, they are for entertainment and not to be taken seriously, especially so when it is a list about men and women. The list was written in a comedic tone and should be taken in that context.

        I think most people who criticize it realize this. Quite frankly, this kind of sexism just isn’t funny, and, if anything, just helps perpetuate and reinforce ridiculous stereotypes, regardless of whether it’s supposed to be humorous or not. Besides, men say these things as well. Even disregarding the sexism, that alone makes this whole thing not funny.

            It’s a metaphorical reference to how humans have similar social experiences. We do, as in if you are in an argument with a person, you’ve been in their place too in a similar situation. Or if someone bullied you at school, you’ve been the bully as well. People don’t realize how similar we are.
            The human brain isn’t that amazing. It doesn’t create vastly different human beings. It creates a huge social center that makes us able to pick up on the tiniest of social interactions, thus building the perception that we are more different than we truly are.

    Top 5 remarks

    5. Humor is most definitely subjective. Everyone has different opinions about what is funny or not.

    4. Please make sure you don't offend people (authors, guests who post comments) with your topic/reply. Calmly express your disagreement, all the while respecting the other person's opinions.

    3. Women (just as men) are FANTASTIC human beings. Some women use these phrases on a constant basis, other women don’t. This doesn’t make women bad people/communicators. The subject is too complex to be discussed in a short post.

    2. If it doesn't happen to you, it doesn't mean it doesn't happen to someone else.

    1. We're built different, so we communicate different. Not inferior or superior to, just different. These phrases aren’t made-up. Reality isn't the way you wish things to be, nor the way they appear to be, but the way they actually are.

      Just replying to number one, simply because it’s factually incorrect, and hence is why this is kind of a big deal in the first place. Note: this can also be considered a response to number two, but it’s more towards one.

      You said that, “Some women use these phrases on a constant basis, other women don’t,” which is true. However, you also say, “We’re built different, so we communicate different,” which contradicts your previous statement, and I’ll explain why. If the latter is the case, then why doesn’t every woman talk the same? If there is one exception to the rule, then the theory/hypothesis/etc. is incorrect, and it’s certainly not correct to go around saying that it is (and in this case, there’s not even necessarily a correlation, and even if it is, it can therefore be changed, and is still incorrect). For that reason, it becomes apparent that genetics do not control personality like that, since each person of each sex would not be able to deviate from their traditional gender roles due to something within their body controlling them. In other words, I wouldn’t be a tomboy if that were true. It is learned behavior, brought down, whether intentionally or not, from various people you associate with throughout your life.

      “Reality isn’t the way you wish things to be, nor the way they appear to be, but the way they actually are.”

      I am driven to be provocative and childish by saying then maybe you should face up to it… But…
      Instead I leave you with this:

      “We see things not as they are, but as we are.”
      – Stephen Covey.

      Does this make reality a much different idea than you had first thought? I don’t believe any of this document. It’s just twisted, not funny. Ideally, a cruel piece. I’m sorry you got such bad responses, but they are the truth. (Truth = opinions in this case. Majority rule. Minority rights, but majority rule. We’ve been down the path of sexism and back so I think most people know it pretty well.)
      And to say “We’re different, so we communicate different” is essentially true, but let’s not put BOYS in one category and GIRLS in the other. The line is not right down the middle. In fact it’s quite scattered and unpredictable, like life and humans really are.

    As a 14 year old girl, I’ve never really had to deal with this stuff. I don’t know first hand what the communication between men and me is like. Perhaps I will be a moany bitch who constantly says the opposite of what she’s thinking and expects people to read her mind, but I really hope I won’t be. I’d HATE myself.

    I don’t think I will be that woman, but if gender stereotypes like this continue (even in so-called ‘humourous’ articles), I might end up turning into her. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to defy people’s expectations of me. With enough pressure to be a ‘typical woman’, I might just give in, and that would be absolutely tragic.

      One of my biggest pet peeves is stereotyping and generalizing age. For god’s sakes I was 2 days past 15 when I lost my virginity (Not a slutty act, it was love at the time and I never regret it). As a 14 year old girl YOU may not know about this stuff but other people do.

          A. This is something that really bugs me because I feel like you’re underestimating all 14 year olds across the world.

          B. I said it was a pet peeve and so I just had to tackle it.

          C. Many 14 year old girls do know about this stuff. In fact this is where the misunderstanding starts is somewhere in the teenage years. I’ve seen more often that girls want love and romance and think that if a guy likes them that he will love them. The case is not always true. Sex tends to be a bit higher on the Want’s list for guys, because of their physical make up. Nonetheless, I’m getting way off topic.

          D. The point is, please do not use your age as a stereotype. You are never too old or young to do something. (So don’t hold yourself back based on age either.)

            Okay. I didn’t mean to say that 14 year olds don’t know anything about this. There’s one girl in my year who was in a pretty serious romantic relationship. I think it lasted about 2 years, and she’s still in love with him. They broke up because of communication problems. He was making really mean comments without realising that he was hurting people, and when she sent him a 5-page text about how she was feeling, he just replied, “Okay.”

            Personally, I feel relationships like that at my age are a bit weird. I don’t think that people shouldn’t be in them or that people aren’t in them, but it’s still a bizarre concept to me. When I look around, I don’t see couples that are in love. It seems everyone’s just ‘going out’ to show off to their friends. There are girls that sleep with different people every night just to be popular (even though they just come off as sluts to everyone else). The couple I talked about in the first paragraph had slept together, but it was a proper relationship and they clearly didn’t do it for attention or to be able to brag about it to the rest of the school.

            In short, I don’t feel the majority of my peers are mature enough to be in relationships that aren’t completely shallow. Really, when I think about it, the majority of my peers will probably won’t be mature about it for the rest of their lives. Things probably won’t change at all. They’ll only get worse when it becomes LEGAL for them to go to drinking.

            Anyway, I wasn’t trying to make a comment about all 14 year olds, and I’m sorry if it sounded like that. I was only making a comment about myself as a young person. When it comes to romantic relationships, I still feel like a kid. I’ve had zero experience. I feel that 14 is pretty young and that emotionally mature 14 year olds are in the minority. This may or may not be true, and I really have no knowledge about it. In all honesty, my horizons and real-world experience are tiny and I sometimes forget that there’s a very thin line between stating opinions and making ridiculous generalizations…especially on the Internet.

            Sorry about all this.

      Well it’s quite understandable. I was in the same boat as you at that age. When romance falls into your life, I could guesstimate that it will all happen so fast and then you will sound experienced even though you feel almost the same, because it all happens so fast. You aren’t really missing out on too much… Except that until the first date or first kiss or first romantic experience of some sort, you do feel it’s much more important than it ends up being. I understand you completely now, though I had some idea of it before. I just wanted to clarify. I hope this was a calm discussion and not an all out war for you.

    I think this article is pretty sad. I don’t say any of the things mentioned. I don’t know any women that say these things.

    I hardly watch any tv so I can say from experience that the article is 70% true. Girls like to use the “nothing” phrase often. they actually want to be heard except that they’re too angry to explain everything. they havet to be pressed on until they finally let it all out. kind of like they’re playing hard to get. I know because i myself have used this a few times. guys on the other hand usually keep the problem to themselves and won’t talk about it – at all. you force them, they’ll get angrier. i have brothers, so i can attest to that. yes, i am generalizing but it all makes sense to me now. if people don’t want to be generalized based on gender, then there’s no need to use the terms “man” or “woman” at all. It’s the responsible of the reader if he ends up being a sexist or not OR being reduced to their traditional gender roles.

      I hate saying “nothing” and I’m a girl. I like telling my problems because it’s therepuetic but only if the other person asks, or if it’s a close friend who’s supposed to be supportive of me. And I hate secrets. I’m just saying 70% is FAR too high for any stereotype or generalization.
      Are you really willing to say that 50% of the world’s population, no matter their religion or culture or age, will act this way and the other 50% will act another way? If you say yes I will leave it at that and we never have to talk again. But if you say no… I rest my case.
      Alright so lets get really nitty gritty here and find 70% of 50% … 35%. So half of 7 billion rounded is 3.5 billion. 35% of 3.5 billion is… not something any of my calculators can calculate. So I’ll just guess. 1 billion-ish. Are you willing to say 1 billion women in the world say “nothing” when something is wrong? Do you have any IDEA how immensely different we are? We may be physically the same about 98% but mentally we are all so beautifully DIFFERENT. So you use the nothing word, nobody in this world is exactly like you mentally. I know plenty of guys who talk also. I have guy friends, I’ve had boyfriends, I’ve had girlfriends and I have a super shy sister who’s never used the “nothing” thing with me. She’s always said “I don’t want to talk about it with you.” Gee how magnificently direct for a change! Responsibility of the reader? Look who posted this!

But the reason why there are many kinds of girls and many kinds of boys? so each finds their match :D i wont wanna date a girl tho that uses guilt trips and the nothing often.. and also, if a girl doesnt like it that the biy likes MW2 or Halo or whatev, then why date him in the first place? being cute is not a reason enough :D and vice versa

    I think that this list is very outdated, these things keep following women and really do lead to men ‘hating’ women. In my own relationships, I try to be as direct as possible. Sometimes it is a catch 22, people generally say they want you to be direct with them but then when you are they think you are too blunt. It is a learning process. What I’m getting at here, is that the new generation of women can’t be put into these categories, I think that we are evolving as we are definitely more independent than in previous years and so why would be afraid to say something directly? Men and women should strive to co-evolve in improving the lines of communication together. It takes two people to communicate and if a man does not like the way a woman says something then there is certainly a way to bring that up in a polite respectful way and both people can explore how to improve their communication. Wish you all blessed, loving, respectful relationships.

      And I’m sure that was the point of the entire article.

      The truth is that women do think differently and communicate differently than men. All one has to do to see that is watch a gathering of women talk — as many different topics as there are women in the conversation yet they’re all following each other with no problem. Then watch a group of guys — they may go from topic to topic but it will be sequentially with each commenting on the same topic until it changes. Women focus more on the intuitive side of the brain while men focus on the, for lack of a better term, logical or sequential part of the thinking process. That doesn’t mean I’ve not seen intuition get the right answer as often or more often than pure logic. Just that there are different mechanisms at work. When intuition tries to communicate with logic, however, misunderstandings occur. That’s just life and this article, I thought, did a wonderful job of showing the humor in that.

    Way to simultaneously perpetuate two stereotypes:

    You know, I don’t agree with a lot of this, and I’m a woman.
    For example: I just happen to be incredibly indecisive, so when I tell my boyfriend “it’s up to you…it’s your decision” I actually mean it. I WANT him to make the decision.
    And if I say I “plan to clean” and he says not to worry about it…I’m not going to turn his suggestion into a challenge. If I want to clean I will. If I don’t I wont.

    Most of these do not apply to me, really. And I’m a woman. The only thing I can probably relate to is “nothing”. “Whatever” has a very different meaning to me. It’s more like, “okay, your point in the argument is acceptable, but it doesn’t change the fact that I am hurt”. Not necessarily “pathetic”–that is just too much.

    Judging from the statements, this article was written by a woman, and a very controlling one. I for one cannot fathom talking down my husband or my boyfriend–because they deserve “respect”.

    I don’t believe that guys have that “stay away” sign–unless you’re getting into his hair too much.
    Besides, what’s wrong with playing World of Warcraft? Rule of thumb: stay away from guys that do not share the same interest (or at least a common ground) as you. Since you don’t play, you can never understand how they can find it entertaining–and with the attitude you had shown everyone, hell, even I will choose to play Tetris than talk to you.

    In short: stop nagging. If you’re stressed, agitated, just be quiet. If you have this kind of demeanor when stressed or hurt, then look for more peaceful, less demeaning ways to communicate your displeasure. I am a woman, but I don’t approve of this.

    I don’t agree with the sandwich thing, hell no. You want a sandwich, make it yourself and make me one too as long as i ask nicely. Women and men should respect each other, and it’s just that women are different and have needs when it comes to talking it out. If you’re in a relationship you should already know your way around women. Women just end up doing more of the cooking and cleaning, but the man should at least help with garbage and dishes or something like that. Just say please and thank you (like you mean it) and you’ll be fine. About sex, just don’t offend the girl, and if anything… well, like someone said it can’t be stopped and I can figure that’s probably true….so… I don’t know what to say to that. oh well. Most women aren’t so touchy so all I have to say is speak for yourself and that those are stereotypical housewife ideas set by none other than the sitcoms we watch. (example: everybody love’s Raymond) don’t get me wrong, I love the show, but it’s a clear example.

      you know the whole “make me a sandwich” thing is really just a crazy internet meme/joke.
      We’re in that stage of gender culture where we joke about the sexism of the past, and where some people overcompensate for sexism- feminazis.
      Hopefully I see us moving against that overcompensation for total equality as feminism is outdated. There are little things sexist against men and women.
      Actually all humans have needs to talk it out, it’s just more accepted in society and culture for women to talk about their feelings. It’s unfortunate and difficult for any human to have to adapt to an emotionless persona. Emotions are very real in humans and we eff them up all the time by ignoring them instead of confronting and trying to figure them out.

      Contradtortally, sometimes the women who work in our lives frustrate us because it feels like blackmail, as if we owe them this debt because of all the cooking and cleaning they do. I’ve experienced this first hand with my mother, and since I was born into her doing this for me I never learned to do those things for myself. Now I have to break lazy habits on my own, because my delusional mother actually does blackmail me with “all I do for you, you selfish person blah blah blah!” This is not because she is a woman, but related to that concept just because I was born into a quasi-fundamentalist family. It’s mainly because my dad is a workaholic and has minimal time to spend on the rest of his life, let alone cooking and cleaning for us. (his job made more money than my mom’s and so she quit to raise me. Believe me, I hear about that one on a weekly basis!)

      I was the guy that said sex is more controlling of us than girls. I think if girls are empathetic about sex and COMMUNICATION is involved compromises and understanding can be worked out. I honestly think one argument against evolution is how girls evolved to not like sex very much. WTF is up with that? You’d think the horniest girls would have the most children before we were smart enough to invent birth control. Heh maybe that messed it up. Anywhoozel, I figure if us guys are empathetic to estrogen-based emotional craziness and girls in return are empathetic to our testosterone-based horniness, then presto we are chock full of empathy and it all works out.

      Oh god my parents love Everybody Loves Raymond. I HATE DEBRA on that show. She is so mean to Ray, and sometimes he’s right but he doesn’t defend himself well, for the comedic aspect of the show. If they were a couple in real life they’d be divorced by now thanks to Debra. She has anger problems. But her more modern housewife character, Frankie, on that new show The Middle is much calmer. (it’s funny I’ve always hated Debra but never thought I was justified until now.)
      And yeah besides the fundamentalist feminazi vibe that show has some pretty well-written, creative and genius humor.

    Girls everywhere and all you emasculated “men” who are trying so hard to be politically correct at the expense of your masculinity, listen up.

    Men and women are equals. This does not mean that they are equal in every single thing they do. For example, men are, on average, physically stronger than women. It is much easier for a semi attractive (even a 6/10) woman to go out and get laid. The same cannot be said about men. Men have to work at it, have some skill (game) and thereby get a woman to sleep with them. It is a LOT harder for an equally attractive man to get women than it is the other way around. This is one of reasons behind why we, as a society, naturally celebrate men who are successful in bedding multiple women; while at the same time shame women who bed multiple men.

    Let us briefly visit the topic of virginity from both perspectives. Virginity in a man is not a desirable state or label when it comes to an attribute that the opposite sex wants. This is because he has obviously not been preselected by other women. However, female virginity is not looked at negatively in the least by men. If she looks decent, no man cares if the girl is a virgin or not. In fact, a female virgin is often wanted more.

    Now don’t get me wrong, men LOVE sluts. We will never turn down an opportunity to sleep with a good looking slut. Partly because she’s good in bed, partly because it’s sex. But any decently intelligent, self-respecting man will know that it is a terrible idea to emotionally involve himself (i.e. date) with a slutty girl. That would be a very dumb move. Why would any man want to get emotionally involved with a girl who’s had 15+ sexual partners? We would just be setting ourselves up for failure. There are many nice worthy girls out there who don’t have daddy issues and haven’t slept with an entire fraternity house. But, by all means, fvck the brains out of sluts in the meanwhile.

    Most guys can detect when a girl is a slut by the first few dates and by what he hears about the girl from other people and from the girl herlself. We put this information together and figure out if she is dating material or not. If not, I like most guys, will still go in for the prize but have no intention of following through with dating the dirty little tart.

    To put it simply, a lock that can be opened by many keys is a useless lock and of little worth. But a key that can open many locks is a master key and is valuable.

    so….why is it always about her? Why is every article written by a woman about “helping men” always about helping the men to give in to woman’s every little desire? Women are control freaks and it is exactly because once a month they have a period. It is COMPLETELY outside of their control, like just about everything else which they can bever accept, so they ABSOLUTELY MUST CONTROL EVERYTHING ELSE except they utterly fail when it comes to controlling themselves. This is MISANDRY and VAGINIZATION of men and it is exactly what the decline of western civilization will be blamed upon in the future, ASSUMING there is anyone left to even tell the tale.

    OK, I started searching for a ‘specific’ question (why does a woman use reverse psychology against men to get an reaction the man would not have given her) but ended up here and I think I might get an answer here?!

    I have a girlfriend, not married yet but she stays in my house and wears the pants by giving all the orders how she likes it. I don’t want to get married anymore unless I get a good way to handle this situation or to tell her in the right why she actually is doing things, because my method just goes in by one ear and out by the other… Please suggest a way to deal with this or maybe someone else I can get in to tell her what she does is wrong. I don’t want someone who is neutral, but someone who is straight so that who ever is wrong can finally hear it from someone else. I really love her, but hell, this can’t go on like this…

    OK, my question:
    Why does she use “reverse psychology” (hope it is the right term) to work me up and make me do something and then use my reaction against me? I will be as calm as can be and she will go on about something, on on on on on until I start to talk loader just so she can listen to me and then she starts to talks me dead and then I have to almost scream just to end my sentences. Then she tells everybody I am rude and scream at her and I have no respect where I was as calm as can be and she made me end up being like that on that spot! Other wise I am a very calm guy… She will also tell people that I was like that from the beginning where I was NOT but being worked up by her so that I end up being like that!

    What must I do???

      Look up “control issues” on a search engine. You will find that many people try to control others. The only problem is, they use Grade School Tactics, ie. I love to have you as my friend. Then during the next couple of days, I hate you, you don’t care about me.l You tell them you do like them and then it starts all over agin.

      You are bing controlled buddy. I know, look at my wifes post down below. Here in Oregon, most of the women are willing to please their man. My wife is just the oposite. She only wants to be treated special.

      TIme for a divorce, Linda,. The kids are gone and you are a big problem. Too many years of abuse by a B****!

    If I didn’t keep my husband reined in, he would have spent every last dime on his toys or his house or his family. I tell him, almost every day, there is no reason to let you have EVERYTHING YOU WANT!

    I am so tired of him telling me it cost $28.00 a week for my hair appointment, That is all I cost him. He doesn’t appreciate my cleaning the house or going to get take out.

    He gets mad because I won’t allow him to buy frivolous car accessories that cost hundreds of dollars. Either he spends more money on me, or I am out of here. I am fed up with him.

      Why the he** does it have to about you you you. You sound like a spoiled bi*ch that thinks he should buy you things but oh wait when he asks for something you get all bit*chy. You statement ” Either he spends more money on me, or I am out of here.” makes you sound like all your after is money. Go get a job if you don’t have one.

    Women complain about how unfair it is that men are called studs when they sleep around, yet women get called sluts for the exact same behavior. Itâ??s actually not a double standard though, because both scenarios are pretty different in terms of circumstances and consequences. I can think of at least four crucial differences:

    First, sleeping around is easier for women. Regardless of how you feel about promiscuity, we can all agree that a guy who manages to rack up a lot of sexual partners has to have some skills. Itâ??s challenging for men to rack up partners, even for men with low standards. A man needs social intelligence, interpersonal skills, persistence, thick skin, and plain old dumb luck. For women, though, a vagina and a pulse is often enough. Whenever an accomplishment requires absolutely no challenge, no one respects it. Itâ??s just viewed as a lack of self-discipline. People respect those who accomplish challenging feats, while they consider those who overindulge in easily obtained feats as weak, untrustworthy or flawed.

    Second, women have potential to do more harm by sleeping around than men do. Say a man sleeps around with a bunch of different women. Heâ??s definitely doing harm to these women if he pretends to be monogamous while sleeping around. He may cause them emotional pain by his promiscuity. He may cause unwanted pregnancy. He may spread VD. When women sleep around, however, they can cause not only all these same ill effects but one additional crucial ill effect: the risk of unknown parentage.

    If one guy sleeps around with five women, each of whom is monogamous to him, and they all get pregnant, itâ??s a safe bet as to who the father is. If you reverse genders and have one woman who sleeps around with five men who are monogamous to her, and she gets pregnant, the father could be any of the five men. And if one of those men is tricked into raising a baby that isnâ??t his, heâ??s investing time, money, estate and property to provide for a child that isnâ??t carrying his DNA into the next generations, a costly mistake from an evolutionary standpoint.

    Our two basic primal drives are to survive and to reproduce, and promiscuous women traditionally make it hard for a man to know for sure whether he is truly reproducing or is secretly raising another manâ??s child. Men stand a lot more to lose from promiscuous women than the other way around. And itâ??s no picnic for the child to not know who his real father is either. And itâ??s a mess for the women carrying on the deception as well. Or just look at any random episode of the Maury show if you donâ??t believe me.

    Since the DNA test and the birth control pill didnâ??t exist until recently, there were no reliable ways to prevent pregnancy or prove parentage for most of human history. For this reason society developed a vested interest in preventing promiscuity among women, and society accomplished this by creating the slut stigma. And even though the creation of birth control and DNA tests have made this less of a risk than the past, longstanding traditions and customs are not easy for society to break so the slut stigma remains.

    Third, men have evolutionary reasons to be programmed to sleep around more. A lot of women roll their eyes when they hear that men are â??hard-wiredâ?? to sleep around. But from an evolutionary standpoint, it makes total sense. If the two primal drives of humans are to survive and to reproduce, nothing leads to maximum reproduction like one man sleeping with multiple women. If one women sleeps with many men in a nine month period, she can only get pregnant just once. Nine months of rampant promiscuity would give the same result as nine months of highly sexed monogamy: one pregnancy. Now if one man sleeps with many women during a nine month period, you can get many pregnancies during that period. The more women he sleeps with, the more possible pregnancies.

    So from an evolutionary standpoint, there are concrete advantages to men being promiscuous compared to women being promiscuous. This doesnâ??t mean that women have evolved to be strictly monogamous. Women have evolved to be somewhat promiscuous too, something men badly underestimate. However they havenâ??t evolved to be as rampantly promiscuous as men.

    Fourth, promiscuity poses more risk to women than to men. A woman has more to lose from choosing bad sex partners than a man does. Sheâ??s the one who gets stuck with going through a pregnancy and taking care of a baby alone if she chooses a deadbeat. For this reason, promiscuous women throughout history have historically been viewed as being a vastly more irresponsible risk takers than promiscuous men, who rightly or wrongly could always run away from the consequences of unwanted pregnancies easier than women could.

    These four reasons explain why the longstanding tradition came about of men being rewarded for multiple partners while women get socially punished for similar promiscuity. Of course all this is gradually changing, but weâ??re up against millenia of evolutionary and cultural conditioning here, so donâ??t expect any dramatic overnight reversals.

    Understand that Iâ??m just explaining why the double standard came into existence and not condoning or condemning it. This is not an attempt to pass judgment or be self-righteous in any way. Itâ??s just an explanation of why the two conditions are treated differently.

    “Yea, but always being wrong just beats you down.” Those are very toxic relationships when both men and women have the attitude of that’s always wrong, whatever you say is wrong. Those kind of negative people need to be left alone. Those type are generally the miss nose up in air, the I can’t do anything wrong, the look at me (me me me) I always got A’s in high school type catty BS women. Ugh those are awful women until they get a**es beat down a few times and thrown into the dirt and they start to learn their lesson that she’s not always right and people hate those types.

    I think you meant to write “verbal abusers” instead of women in general. I would never tolerate someone talking to me like that, nor would I treat my boyfriend with such scorn and contempt. Being female doesn’t mean you have the right to talk down to people like this, nor does it mean that you do. I agree that sometimes we can say one thing while meaning another, but the way this was presented was derogatory and offensive, not funny. We must all be manipulative, venomous spendthrifts, according to these guidelines. I would argue that a healthy relationship would go in just about the exact opposite direction of this list — open communication and mutual respect. Forget the pedestal that lets women do and say whatever they want, or the old system where men conversely rule make all the decisions and get cow towed to by their women.

    I believe women tend to use these phrases, words when they are either really pissed off, or if they simply dont truly love you…. because if they truly love you.. and trust you.. i dont think they are likely to make you go through so much trouble. but that’s what i think..

    but it’s probably a fact

    The big differences:

    women – indecisive, likes to over think consequences
    men – decisive, knows the consequences but does it anyways

    women – talkative, gossipy
    men – action first, talk later

    women – lacks logic, can’t invent
    men – lacks understanding

    women – always emotional wreck
    men – Can’t understand women mood swings

    women – you must know what I am thinking, else you are dumb!
    men – no i really don’t know what’s on your mind if you don’t tell me!

    Dude if I’m ever this much of a bitch to my future husband, I’ll grant him permission to murder me. It sounds like she’s talking to a child throughout the whole article, which is totally disrespectful. When I read this I was disgusted. I can’t believe people talk to their husbands like this and that the husbands sit there and take it. I definitely wouldn’t want to be married to some pansy who let me walk all over him.

    More proof that women–shallow, narcissistic creatures–should not be let anywhere near positions of power or influence (except if it’s the kitchen or with children).
