Why are women so difficult???
 
My wife always nixes anything I want to do. If I want to go training she always complains that I train too much. If I buy lunch during the weeks she complains that I should brown bag it. I'm looking to buy a new street bike (bicycle) and she is giving me so much crap. I make a really good living and I'm sick of sneaking around buying things. I'm prob. still going to buy the bike but I just don't need all this stress.

Why do women always try to control you? WTF!!!! If I was single I would have so many more toys and freedom. Why can't they just support what we want to do and encourage us?

Hey man,
I feel ya... the only thing that comes to mind is that women like drama and are a bit nuts, they are much more emotional creatures than we men are. I still love them though : ). The way I see it if you're going to get bitched at regardless of what you do, just go ahead and be open about what you want to buy and do and do it anyway... tell her you support her totally in what she wants to do that makes her happy and she should do the same.

Cheers,

It's called a relationship. With women, you don't actually have to do what they want most of the time, just pretend like you will take it into consideration.

If she complains about you buying lunch, just say "you're right. I will definitely try to bring lunch more often when I remember to pack one."

If she complains about you training too much, take a day off here and there and the other days just say "you're right, I will cut back on the training. But today I just really want to go."

The point is, as long as you do some of the things they ask and they think you tkae into consideration their wants they will be happy. Perception is reality.

My lady-friend is the same way. Whenever she wants something I just say, "sure thing, we can do that" even if I don't mean it. Just acknowledging her idea makes her happy and she drops the topic for a long time. And so the cycle ensues....

You sound like me Bobby!

The keys are patience and knowing when to say enough and walk away. Some people simply bring out the worst in each other. Passion can turn ugly so fast you literally won't know what happened.

for most of my career the definition of my job has been constant conflict. I have to have peace and harmony at home. It took me 38 years and a lot of ugly break ups but I finally found a woman who's happy making me happy and is smart enough to keep me in my place without pissing me off all the time. Trust me it's worth the wait. Now I have two beautiful children at just the right time for me. The alternative would have been 18 years of paying child support to a woman that hates me.

You'll change your tune one day Bobby. :thumb02:

I don't know man..

It's just such a matter of no importance to me to tie the knot in the future. I mean I can still be together with this girl for the rest of my life if I want to.. without signing a peace of paper :dunno:

And then if we really can't look at each other anymore, after lets say 20 years.. we just go different ways. Without any troubles and lawyers making big dollars on us.

The only thing I would be missing, would probably be the ceremonies in the Church. But since I am probably resign from the Church tax^^ this is option would be gone.

Actually I wann live togehter with 2 or 3 girls someday :D

I was married in '03 to a lady that I'd been with since '00. We were together til '08, and have been separated ever since. After seeing the way my buddy and his wife get along, and how she doesn't bother him for wanting to be a man every once in awhile, whether it's watching the game or drinking til he can't see straight, she doesn't bitch about him at all. He realizes what he has, and treats her with the same respect.

That said, I'm convinced I married the wrong one. I'm not saying I want his wife, but she is definately proof that they are out there, and they don't stress the small shit.

Not all women are the way your wife is. I will concede to the fact that women are more emotional than men. That is just the way we are. But I will not paint each woman with the same brush if I were you.

I for one believe in giving a man freedom, respect and to even spoil him if I can.

Women might be emotional and complicated, but it is the little things in life that makes us more appreciative towards men. We want to feel special, loved and respected. If we do, we will give double back in return. Or at least that is how I am.

Maybe you should make your wife feel special again. Make her remember the reasons for marrying you in the first place. And I don't say you have to buy her something to enable you to buy something. Just treat her to something you know she will like. Maybe a massage or pay for her to let her hair get done or whatever she fancies. Maybe she will then bitch less about the things you want.

Please don't take this the wrong way. You might have done all of this already. I am just making suggestions.
