Guys are dumb


This is one of my oldest posts, from a few years back when my readership primarily consisted of my mom and one buddy. But I still think it’s hugely relevant, so I’m reblogging…

Over the past year and a half, I’ve spent what is probably an unhealthy amount of time thinking about relationships and male/female dynamics.  During that time I’ve looked at a number of books and websites dealing with relationships, relationship issues and any other topics that seem like offshoots of this.  Mid-life crisis, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, personality types, adultery, menopause, you name it.

While on websites I try to read comments on sites and in forums.  This feedback portion of the web is of particular interest to me because you get a lot of peoples stories.  Sure, a lot of people use forums as a means of venting (about how terrible their significant other is and how great they are), but there is still a lot of valuable stuff there.  The relative anonymity of the internet allows people to show sides of themselves that they may not normally show.  There…

    • Indeed, happy new years and welcome back. Posting has been in a bit of a lull, as there have been a bunch of things going on that have taken me away from writing.

      BUT, there’s still a lot of things coming…

      My current issue is I get an idea and start writing, but then before finishing I get another idea and start writing that.

      At the moment it feels like I have about 50 partially written posts, so I really just need to focus and get one actually finished!!!

      Hopefully in the next few days.

      Thanks for commenting!
