The Relationship - vent thread

It has become over whelmingly apparent there are people who are experiencing frustrations with relationships


***Women who won't help you financially


**Men who are so afraid of their emotions they are clueless


***Your spouse who expects you to do all the house work while they go out with their friends


**The date last Saturday who saw you only as an object to be used for his/her pleasure.


***Your opinion that men are afraid to have their ego dented by imperfection so they lay their trash upon you crapping your life out



**Women expect strength and sensitivity from their man like one of those exist in real life.


***Why you refuse to date any more


**The fifty reason why you won't ever marry again


WHAT EVER the fffry gets your goat -

I ran out of goats so here is my solution


This is the place to vent your frustrations with either your expected social role or the behaviors of the opposite sex {ie your spouse/partner} - your intimate relationship this thread is for steam release , rants, soap, boxes ect. . . .the only topic Your intimate relationship VENTS


Same sex partners also have gender roles, relationship frustrations although they may be some what different than traditional that shouldn't be a hindrance - You too are welcome to post your grievances -

Singles are welcome too I am sure you too have frustrations so no one is to feel left out .

Bottom line - I just would like all these pent up frustrations off these other threads where people are looking for help and put here in one place where no advice or assistance is being sought.


Please do remember the guidelines still apply so no flaming!

Re: Why the opposite sex is frustrating - vent thread

He's perfect, does no wrong. Never needs to apologize and won't.

My ideas are dumb, unrealistic, or fanciful. Until they are implemented behind his back and actually work. Then, it was likely just his idea to begin with and I stole it.


I'm too girly to think.

Re: Why the opposite sex is frustrating - vent thread

Why I refuse to date anymore

Answer: I'm exhausted at 36! I'm tired of conforming to other womens' image of being the perfect guy, the understanding guy, the caring guy, well-dressed guy, well- organized guy, etc. When I meet women at the beginning they say they like a guy who is quirky and different (like me), they really don't to be honest. Most women I meet really want the guy next door who is a 'regular' guy (whatever that means). I'm intelligent, funny, handsome, independent, adventurous, loyal, creative and none of these qualities seem to matter much in the long run. I'm tired of family and friends asking me why I haven't settled down yet. I wish they would just leave me alone on this issue. I've pretty much figured out that I will never get married.

Re: Why the opposite sex is frustrating - vent thread

Brakna, I can understand, believe me. Do you get lonley sometimes, not having a girlfriend or wife? or do you have enough hobbies to keep you busy? I have no idea if I will get married or not. All I know is that my ADD/LD has a big effect on most everything I do.

Re: Why the opposite sex is frustrating - vent thread

nice addition, Ms. Meadd....I have many frustrations with the opposite sex. Right now I don't feel like posting them though. I will at some point.

Re: Why the opposite sex is frustrating - vent thread

Yea I have this beef with females, they seem to only be intersted in my looks. never my exxentricities and certainly not my strong yet sentive side...or maybe this is why I've broken off every relationship I've been in...hmmm

Re: Why the opposite sex is frustrating - vent thread

Sometimes I wish I was straight. Guys seem to be a lot less complicated.

Maybe you wouldn't mind if you were straight

Interestingly enough though .. the things in women groups (lesbians) that I have the most problems with .. exclusion, playing favourites, group politics .. every single add woman that I spoke with (still only a handful) was totally allergic to these things as well. Maybe because we don't *get it*? Are we more individualists / not group people?

Anyway, that's what frustrates me of the "same sex".

and when he does it..he's expecting praise and rewards like a child I don't say "look, I did the washing today" every day
