some issues with ladies' lounge

i don't post on this site much, but like all men, i gravitate towards the women, especially on a car forum. i am engaged but love the window shopping.

i've noticed a lot of "men suck" threads lately, and actually all opinions are pretty valid. men are far from perfect.

but i can't reply on that lounge, so i'm replying here.

topic #1 i'd like to discuss: paying vs. not paying on a date.

women need to be careful what they wish for. 1st of all, women's freedom is all over the media: women's independence is flaunted in modern history books and music video's, and since a lot of women are working, a lot of the times they make more money than men.

in my opinion, it would seem too traditional, almost backwards, to have a man pay for everything. especially when everything is so expensive these days, it's probably a better sign of the times to have each person foot the bill.

ah, but men have always been more logical thinkers when discussing these issues. women have a dilemma here: they like feeling romanced, they like feeling special, but they never want to think they're needy.

my opinion: if it's a special anniversary dinner, or an extremely expensive special weekend, split the bill. if it's just a regular dinner, take turns paying. but the days of chivalry are over, and i'll tell you why: it has become very politically incorrect to assume that the man is supposed to take care of the woman.

topic #2 i'd like to discuss: why men get angry when they don't get any

listern ladies, if there's one thing that's perfectly clear, it's that men, ALL men, want it. from the nice, to the needy, to the sissy, to the greedy. that's the one thing all men have in common. so if you're at a stage in your life when you're not ready, or willing, to give it up, expect some turbulance in the relationship.

don't think of this as having to be his doormat. there are limits. but just like how there's limits in one direction, there are limits in the other direction as well. this need of ours is primal; if we don't get some sort of minimal amount, we generally look elsewhere. and if we don't keep things exciting, we look elsewhere as well.

this is not an excuse to cheat; men should be just as loyal, PERIOD. but just like men have to accept certain things about women, this area should be considered a given. if you don't give it up as often as he would like, find another boyfriend, or expect some turbulance.

and if you think i'm being some sort of bygot, find me one man that will put up with it for extended periods of time. something will give eventually, given a long enough timeline.

if you're in the mood to be alone, need some time to yourself, are not in the mood too often, my advice is not to date until you're ready for the action again.

feedback from the men is highly appreciated, as these are just my opinions.

Re: some issues with ladies' lounge

Well just like us women are allowed to have an opinion. I respect that you didn't go in there blabbing about it in their area so respect there. In my eyes the only opinion about men coming from a women that I care about is from my Fiance. I will still take in what other women say just like they would for me out of respect but, if what they are saying I don't agree with I will prob just blow it off just like I'm sure women have done for me. I'm sure if we where as outspoken about women as women are about men there would be alot more threads about it from our side so to speak. Generally I see more men here conserned about their turbo kit or suspension than weather or not women are any good and so forth.

Just how I feel about it.

i am engaged as well, and agree with that comment so long as it's on a car forum.

the reason for my latest rant is simple: i honestly think women are turning into men, and men are turning into women.

i guess silence isn't my thing.

women have figured out that guys are easy to get. combine that with their newfound independence, and they have every reason to play the field. meanwhile, i swear to God, guys are turning into the biggest pansies. a girl dumps them and i swear their life is over. it is so annoying watching my friends degrade themselves about how they can't get a date or how they get screwed once again. whatever happened to the days when guys just didn't give a crap?

so now it's more important than ever for women to understand where men are coming from, because frankly, i think we're handing over our balls to them way too easily. it kind of hurts my pride to be associated with all these wrist slashing emo morons.

Re: some issues with ladies' lounge

Yes I did mean in this particular forum. In other forums like a state photography forum I belong to the men are allways talking about their cameras and such. The women on that forum are a bit more deep than men and offer more insight to photos that men or women post up. I think that forums would be alot less informative without the women. Granted the men though do offer quite a bit of insight but, over there, men boast more about their equipment (camera equipment) alot more than the women do.

if they can vote and do equal work for equal pay, then they can pay for their own damn dinner. I mean, I pay when I take a girl on a date but that it would be expected simply because I'm a man smacks of the same sexism that they seem to decry.

this also confuses me. Is it really that hard to understand that we want sex, and that by not giving it to us they will piss us off? And then they get angry with us for getting angry with them.

seriously, although I should add that we are free to find another girlfriend as well. But then they'll get angry about that too.

Re: some issues with ladies' lounge

funny how they have a ladies lounge but no mens lounge. Since the Admins are men you think they would be equal. Theres no place where men can talk without ladies posting too.

Dont ever accidentally post in a ladies lounge, I accidentally did once and a admin told me he'd delete my account if it happens again. Openly sexist admins. Probably racist too. Im suprised there isnt a "minority lounge".

this thread's been bumped up for over a day now and not a single woman has replied. it even says ladies' lounge right in the title. that's why it exists: they don't want to talk to us.
