LAWL although I'd say he's got more experience than I do!

On reflection, though, I suppose women have a considerable right to hate us as much as they do: After all, when you cut through all the romantic BS, our fundamental, basic interest in them is to stick our horrible, purple-veined cocks up inside them and force them to submit to our animal lust and brutality. We are beasts, they are bitches.

I don't think of Jan as straight-up mysogynistic, although some posts do lend credence to that. I think it helps to remember some men and some women and even some children are just not decent or kind or fair. There are awful people of all stripes, and unfortunately some of those awful people marry and reproduce and work and so on and so forth. I mean, we've all known some awful, conniving people in our day - and we try to not marry them if possible. Jan, on the other hand...

I always pictured your stance on marriage had to do with you grabbing your ankles...

I suspect if I had, as younger man approached relations with the opposite sex with such brutal cynicism, I would have fared much better. Instead, I bought into the whole fallacious underlying mythology of modern heterosexuality: that women, in general, are quite a bit nicer than us--gentle, caring, compassionate, loving, etc., and that a good woman is Life's Ultimate Prize; that if you treat a woman (a normal woman, anyway) with kindness, generosity, tenderness and love, she will repay you in kind, and very probably with interest. And it's all crap! The irony here is that I am quite certain that everybody who meets my present wife must think I am luckiest man in the world--warm, outgoing, caring, fit, youthful, attractive. I (and her son) know the private reality is very different...but in fairness to my wife, in comparing notes with other close friends, I don't think she is probably any more odious than most women.

You are absolutely right. When you ttreat a woman with kindness, generosity, tenderness and love, she will set your shit on fire because you are obviously sticking your purple veined monster in some other woman.

My relationships became much better the time i became a self centered asshole concerned about me first. Putting someone else first bc that is what you were supposed to do just got me crazys, heartbreak and lots of empty pill and whiskey bottles.

he may be serious, but he is also wrong. treating a woman like shit is a great way to get cheated on or have your dick cut off.

I think my mindset is closer to Jans than everyone else's. I think this requires some introspection confused.gif

he might be. Remember that women as a group are not monolithic in terms of relationships. If you have a woman who's very self-centered and willful and demanding - that's one instance were you either stand up for yourself or be miserable.

Also note: Mommy instinct is NOT universal. Remember this.
