Re: What Do Women Want From Their Man?

It's such a boring thing to be upset about. I've been trapped listening to friends bonding over the horror of their man's failure in this life event and I just want to shoot myself. Or yell GET A LIFE depending on how irate I'm feeling.

Here's something I got in email a while back. Take from it what you will ... at your own risk.
The one about the toilet seat is true. The rest are simpleminded and chauvinistic.
They sure are. Except the one about hints -- I think that makes a good point.

As for the toilet... I guess you've never been 3/4 asleep in the middle of the night and gone into a dark bathroom and not noticed that it wasn't just the lid that was up, but the seat, and sat down....
No, can't say I've ever done that. I check what I'm sitting on before I sit.

I never understood why people, men and women, get so bothered by it one way or the other. Given the fact it takes less that a second to lift up or down, by default complaining about it is a waste of time, mine and yours.

I'm sure the Japanese have probably invented some sort of pheromone detecting, methane powered automatic device, that would resolve this problem.

I admit I don't really know what I want in a woman. All I do know is, I'll find out when I meet her.
That's usually what happens.

I don't care about toilet seats and whenever I've had to listen to a female friend rant about the topic it makes me a little less friendly.
Yeah, rants, I went to a party in college, one time. When I arrived one of the female housemates as soon as I walked in instructed me on leaving the toilet seat down. I told her to go fuck herself and left. I get consistency, especially at 2am when half asleep, but that's for folks living there. Guests? If you gotta get in their face cause you can't be bothered to look at what you're doing, you deserve the dunking.
My only rule, and it applies to both sexes:

Don't miss and hit the lid or the floor, and don't overflow the thing. That's all I ask. Do what you want with the lid after you finish and flush. Up. Down. Who cares.

As long as my toilet doesn't look like a Jackson Pollock canvas when you're done, we're totally cool.

Just the idea that one gender is supposed to take responsibility for preparing the toilet for the other gender is very bizarre. Especially when the same woman who complains about men holding doors for her also complains about men leaving the toilet seat up.
Good point. I don't particularly like men holding doors for me, but if one does, I certainly don't complain about it! I just say "thank you" and walk on through.

Wow! That was uncalled for!

Yes, consistency. To me, leaving the seat or even just the lid up all the time looks messy, but there's nothing wrong with a couple agreeing that they want them up when not being used. Of course, being inconsistent with that could be a problem, too, if a sleepy guy didn't notice that the seat and lid were down.

Precisely!! And the ones that Kvetch and play the "poor me" card.

Reminds me of that scene in "GoodFellas" where Karen goes to that make-up party with the rest of the wives. And all they did was complain.

I tend more towards Cubism, really.
