ummm wait…are you trying to confuse us or are you now projecting your complexities upon me? I’m so confused at what…how…and why… you lost me at how a man said this and in what context… men are pretty simple…we like things that start with the letter “B” and stuff….
Beef jerky…boobs….beer….beaver… etc…nothing too complicated about that… Oh wait.. not all of the words with “B” as the first letter…I hate beheaded, and bushwacked, and borrow….hmm…maybe we are more complicated…
I suppose I’m projecting my complexities onto you — being male and all.
I inadvertantly started a conversation with a man today and said something about not understanding some of the online emails I have received via the dating site — he said that I was trying to hard to understand men — that men were not hard to understand and if I thought otherwise it was because of my own complexities that I was trying to put on them.
When a man says “I don’t care” (about what restaurant to go to or whether to have the chicken or fish) he means he doesn’t care. Women (not ALL women), on the other hand, say they don’t care and then are upset that you didn’t know what she really meant was you should remember she doesn’t eat chicken and that she loves that little itallian restaurant down the street. Complex.
I’m trying to figure out what complex bullshit I put out there beyond the times I over analyze everything he says, does and what I think he’s thinking. There must be more. . .
I have to agree with the complex nature of women. We generally think too much and analyze everything in minute detail.. I recently read a book that discussed one of the key differences between men and women as it relates to relationships – when was the last time you saw two men discuss how much they wanted love in their life and their emotional responses to the women in their lives? Never? Because it doesn’t happen generally.
Women agonize over every word and deed and men simply live, act and react. We need to learn to take men at face value – their actions generally speak for themselves.
