Riddle Me This

Why is it that men can be so strong and so aggressive when it comes to things pertaining to their job, or sports or projects, but when it comes to relationships they tend to be the bigest cowards around???

WTF is so damn hard about saying "I'm sorry", or "This relationship just isn't working for me"???????

Why do you have to run off like 4yr old children with the silent treatment? What the hell are you so afraid of????

Have you all really run into that many drama queens that get hysterical or diabolical that that's what type of men you have become? If so, then I am ashamed of my gender because that's just stupid.

I don't expect you guys to cuddle with teddy bears or shed tears at sappy movies, but shit...open up that mouth of yours and say what's on your mind! Don't be a pussy and run. There really isn't anything to be so scared of.

Life is tough, folks, and the faster you run the harder it'll be when it all catches up to you. I've watched the effects and it's really sad. All those demons you run from will gang up on you at once and drag you under. You'd think I'd derive satisfaction out of seeing it happen, but it's so incredibly sad to know that things that could have been so easily avoided with a simple conversation and weren't lead to a future of karmic payback.

Women got to work AND keep their position in the home. We can't spank our kids or talk loud to them. We're all pedophiles, now on top of us all being racists, morons, loosers, criminals, etc. TV ads regale us with the bizness woman and the pink man. You know, the one that gets lemon juice in his eye for DARING to look at another woman on the beach.

What I mean with all this is that male roles have changed a lot. You'd kill my grandfather for just being himself. There is no real complaining but we'll need a century or two to adjust. In the meantime, don't expect us to be pink and act manly. Not until we have time to redefine "manly".

P.S. I got a few teddy bears.

Maybe it's because some of us have been told to "Go to Hell", or not been listened to when we've tried to say something to the women in our lives.

Mozart said it best .
We changed the rules .
So quick we are to shout Men who needs em , but then when they don't hold a door or pay the check they are all sent to assholeville !
More so in this day and age , we women need to be really honest with ourselves .
Do we need the manly man ? Do we still want the strong head of household who kills the spiders , fixes stuff , and who's word is law ?

Or do we want the help with the kids , wash the dishes , take Mindy to ballet man ?

Is there a happy medium ?, well sure there is !
It's called open communication .

Look I can change my own oil and fix stuff but if a spider comes it's all you buddy .
I can make more money , I don't mind , but yes please when our boy breaks the law in a juvinille prank kinda way , you better go grab him by the shirt and ask what was he thinking ?
When my mom dies can you hug me behind closed doors? , and still be man enough to scare off our daughters first loser boyfriend?

Just some thoughts ................

Hey, it's not only men. Everyone I see doesn't do conflict or want to do conflict well. I think we let our ego's get in our way and when we deliver tough information, we need to make sure that we're talking about actions, not the person, unless of course, we really are talking about the person. Most people I know just aren't that interested in each other to take the effort because that's what it takes, effort to communicate well. Oh, and it also takes time.
