Yeah, maybe, gnu. More likely a case of an individual adapting to an environment. 'When in Rome', and all that garbage.. Perhaps I should clarify for our distinguished guest?
Lounging in underwear? My house, my business, and I happen to think skin is great.
Swear like a sailor? Yeah, as well as fluency in four languages (not counting redneck, sailor, or piglatin).
Stooges and DirtyJokes? Sure, but I don't have to be the one hit with a brick to get the joke.
Cars? Get you where you have to go, but the minute you love them more than you do the people in your life, you're a goner.
Professional Wrestling? Give the guys a break, they're just trying to make a living like everyone else.
Truck pulls, boat shows, craft fairs? Not nearly as wonderful as who you go there with. Taking an interest in something besides yourself has very definite benefits.

Zebedee's girlfriend... don't move in. Get married or get out, the quicker the better. Buy him nothing. Take him nowhere. Do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to. Never lie to him or yourself about anything. Talk about your feelings openly and honestly. Give him your love every day and be there for him when he needs you, unless he abuses it. If he weens about anything in the relationship, run as fast as you can and never look back. Life is waaaaaaaaay too short to be a pussy.

gnu'Darlin;
No offense taken AT ALL!! You sound to me like you've got it square from where you sit.
This is a pretty delicate subject to deal with in this medium. Humor that can't be followed with a physical "wink-wink-nudge-nudge" tends to be taken straight away off the mark. You go knock'em dead at that gig luv.

**SERIOUS GIRL-MODE HERE** Zeb, it just isn't going to work unless the two of you are friends, and it sounds like that isn't the case. You should have enough in common that you have things to learn together, enough differences to keep life interesting, and kind enough hearts to appreciate that this is another soul that is bound to do things that will drive you crazy but you can love them right through that anyway.

--gnu

gnu, I agree completely.

I wasn't offended by you. But if you check out the several posts just before I asked if this is where the bitter men hang out, you can see that the tone of the conversation was mostly about bashing women.

I guess what I was, and am, trying to communicate is that people pick up on the tone that others use. If a man or a woman comes across as sounding bitter or like they're bashing the opposite gender, all of the good ones of that gender are going to run, not walk as far as they can get in the opposite direction. So then it becomes sort of a self fulfilling prophecy.

And I've been a pussy, too, so I know exactly what you're talking about. But we have to take responsibility for our own pussy behavior and not blame it on others. And hopefully we can learn from it and be strong without being hurtful.

Good luck with your gig.

Carol

Nowhere in GUEST's post of 25-April-01 11:42am did it say anything about the author being a freakin' genius.

Instructions for reading the post referred to above. Some assembly required:

1. Tools: a sense of humor
2 Plant tongue firmly in cheek
3. Read

But when you have to publish instructions, it kinda takes all the fun out of it.

By the by, I got two tickets for professional wrestling; truck pull later on in the week; demolition derby the week after. That's if I can finish blueprinting the block and get those pop-up pistons installed in the GTO in time. Interested? I got a cooler of Old Milwaukee already iced down.

I just think that the whole cookie-cutter thing of 'this is how women/men ARE' is revolting. It allows NO room for growth. Some day you might want to do those things, other days you might want to hang out with Boo and bake cookies or something...it doesn't make you any less of a man, or any less YOU. I find it no real suprise that people like our GUEST can't find a friendship with a member of the opposite if they allow no room for growth or evolution of the relationship. You just go with whatcha know, sugar, okay?

Seriously, TALK to her, Zeb. Find out beforehand, and if she's too clingy, tell her no and tell her WHY. It will be better for both of you in the long run.

That coping saw is to cut off their tongue.

1: It stops the long list of things they want you to do for them.
2: It stops the nagging on all until you find time to do them.
3: It stops your being told all the time that you're doing it all wrong.

Of course then they can't thank you for doing them, but you never got that in the first place. They just considered it their due.

Advice from Uncle Mouse:

Never forget that men and women are DIFFERENT. Neither gender is better or worse; but each must learn to accept the peculiar peculiarities of the other.

If you expect a woman to behave/think/act like a man, you will be frustrated. And vice versa.

..after contemplating what went wrong and what went right during a 14 year marriage that ended in divorce, I came to some enlightening revelations, some not so major but noetheless mildly significant.

Like: I never lost anything, aside from the occasional set of car keys (or the car) after a night of serious drinking. That was because everything I owned was on the floor. Wake up in the morning, and there it was, staring you in the face. A quick shuffle through the layers of books, records, tapes, clothes, pens, pencils, papers, various and sundry items rarely failed to reveal the item I was looking for. It was only after my "better half" decided "we" needed to become "organized" that I never could find a damn thing. Go figure.

Most men don't marry women for exactly the way they are any more than most women marry men to change them. Mostly this is because few of us ever really know either a potential partner or even ourselves, and just to complicate matters people do change and grow over time. A habit that may have appeared endearing in the "honeymoon" stage may later be intensely irritating. The rest of the universe doesn't stop changing either, and people change as a reaction to that. The other thing that can be a problem is not really seeing the person behind the expectations, both of what you think/hope they are and what (often without realising it) you expect from a relationship. Love can conquer mountains - but it often falls at a molehill. If you communicate, share ideas and expectations, work at it, and are lucky, you may find, recognise and keep someone to love and share your life. Meanwhile work out who you are and what you want.

--Justa Picker

Justa Picker, that hasn't been my experience. (And I've had lots of experience.) My experience has been that some men want to change the women they are with.

My experience has also been that all people, male and female, are individuals, but if you try to generalize about their behavior, you'll get exactly what you expect.

Burke,

That's not such a bad suggestion to buy a duplex. After my boyfriend (now hubby) moved from 300 miles away to here (i.e. after we had been going out for a year) he moved to a house only a block away from mine. It was near enough to spend time together, and separate enough to have time to ourselves. It was especially important for us, we decided, to ease into the closer living, because we were in the habit of only seeing each other every second weekend or so before that, because of the distance.

After we got engaged (another way of saying that we had made the commitment for a long term relationship) and about a month before the wedding he moved into my place. I was very wary of moving in for reasons based on convenience, practicality, or anything other than long term commitment to the relationship.

Respect each other's individuality. If you want to change your partner in any way, then you must change your partner - period!

Accepting each other for what you are is vital - slight niggles will grow into major difficulties if you let them.

Having said that, you must also be prepared to work on the relationship between you - it's not about scoring points.

There is a difference between work which is a pleasure, and work which is a chore. The trick is to recognise which is which...

I recently made the mistake of thinking that I could become the person that the love of my life wanted me to be. Of course I couldn't - the person she wanted wasn't me. It cost me my mental health, as well as my best friend.

Good luck, Ed. Hope it works out well.

I make a distinction between being "assimilated" and "pecker whipped".
I was merely relieved of some bad habits, which I'd wanted to ditch anyway, and just needed the right "impetus". Any improvements made, I can clearly see were for the better, and I do trust her judgement - except in matter of G.A.S. :-)

Justa Picker, maybe that has been what you have experienced from relationships. Yet there are women and men out there in this world who do not want to mold you into something you are not. There are people out there who want to love you for who you are the same as they want to be loved for who they are.

If you are willing to open your perspective on love, you have a better chance of finding it.
