    Things That Don't Matter as much to Men. True or False?

    This was linked at the bottom of LL
    http://madamenoire.com/94709/things-that-dont-matter-as-much-to-men

    I read it and I thought it was pretty accurate (I disagreed with 4 and think 7 could be worded better).

    What is everyone's thoughts on this?

    I found the whole thing full of stereotypes.  

    "For many women, when they receive a text or call from their guy, they hear a clock start ticking very loudly in their head, reminding them of every second that passes while they haven’t texted or called him back."


    Um, really??  Because women have nothing better to do than wait for a guy to respond to them?

    I thought it makes women sound pretty shallow.  It says to me, "Men don't get mad at the silly stuff women do."

    Maybe my reading comprehension skills are off but I can't figure out the perspective of, or reasoning behind the article at all. 

    Are men supposed to get "better" at these things? Are women supposed to "forgive" these things?

    All of it is true in general - but I think, for the most part, it's mostly true for women too. Yes, some women will do the things suggestes in the article and some men will as well.

    page 8 - the sex thing is the only one I 100% agree with. (although some men WILL feel rejected if the woman doesn't want to)

    Men reject women for sex?  

    I've never experienced this phenomenon.

    1. "Checking in on him when he's sick" Don't care.  Let me sleep.

    2. "how come you never think of little cute things to do for me?!” accusation on you…like women do to men." Mrs. Chops has never said this to me, and if she did, I think she would actually self-destruct.

    3. "The Big Things" - these are usually a joint effort, so nothing to really be surprised about.  No big deal.

    4.  I don't even know what to say.  No.

    5.  How hard you try around friends?  I mean, is it really that important that your friends like your significant other?  Wouldn't you choose a significant other that might align with what you like in your friends?  Am I way off?

    6.  I'm guilty of delayed responses, but it's because I'm BUSY.  Same with the wife.  Big deal.  Life goes on.  I don't think this is a gender thing, it's an individual thing for certain.

    7.  Women can feel very rejected when a guy isn’t in the mood to have sex. - True.  
    But men are used to being the predator. - ?? huh?
    So, if the woman isn’t in the mood one night, men don’t take it as personally. - False.

    I didn't identify with any of those.  In fact I am the opposite for most of them.

    I found this one more interesting:

    http://madamenoire.com/141625/7-things-a-man-only-does-if-hes-serious-about-you/

    Guys - yes/no??  Based on that article no man has ever been serious about me (sad face)....

    ooh I do NOT like fuss. I have no time for fuss

    Unless you count things like tonight "fuss" ( I don't )

    NSB leaves for vacation tomorrow. We usually hang out Weds and/or Thurs. Couldn't hang out Weds this week and tonight he is staying with family bc they leave early tomorrow. So we met half way and had dinner. That was a big deal to me since he will be gone for 10 days. Is that "fuss"?

    Plan ahead

    If you’re just a fling to him, you are (unfortunately) kind of replaceable. But, if he is serious about you, no one else’s presence will do. You’ll know that is the case if he asks you a significant amount of time ahead of time to reserve a day so that you can be his date to something. That means he wants to guarantee he gets your time.

    Oooh OOhh! We are good, we are playing Fantasy Baseball together! That guarantees until at least September!!

    I read it.  I think it is foo-foo codswallop.

    I never worried that my family or friends wouldn't like the guy in my life. I expected some would, some wouldn't and that I would. I know both men and women who canNOT keep themselves from answering a text from ANYone even in the middle of a sentence. I would rather my husband stay the hell away from me when I'm sick, beyond the occasional welfare check.  And my husband relies on my clairvoyance - that would be the clairvoyance I am sadly lacking - to divine and attend to missing buttons and holes in stuff. I'm happy to attend to such things if brought to my attention in a timely fashion - although there is some disconnect on our definitions of "timely" [mine doesn't include a frantic request as I'm backing out of the garage on the way to work.] His attitude around my OKness around his family or friends is he expects that I will like them; but as long as no one is being trashy or mean, it's all golden. On the otherhand, he interposed himself between me and my family a few times - but then I guess that's kind of the same because they were being positively hateful.

    My post didn't go through, i titled that "7 things he does that will probably make you put him right in the friend zone, though the last one would be creepy."

    Mr. Cent will initiate cuddling, but he's an atheist so I guess he isn't in Christendom.
