As a man, I can tell you ladies that we are a simple folk. Have a look at this cartoon and I can tell you it explains a lot of our differences in a nutshell....

We love you for who you are, warts and all. Whatever you think we are thinking, we really are not smile

You wish...she's actually thinking 'Eugh!! Not again. I'm definitely giving up drinking this time'

BelleDameSansMerci Sat 30-Mar-13 16:17:22

Ah, of course, because all we ever think about is relationships. hmm

garlicbrunch Sat 30-Mar-13 16:28:00

It's so true! All women think about is men, relationships, and whether they're getting fat! No wonder we can't comprehend the far wider, more creative and fascinating minds of men!

Thanks for explaining smile Such a relief to know you love us despite our limited intellect!

And there was me thinking the difference was basically that men have penises and women have vaginas.

Silly me!

Looked at the cartoon, expected to read comments along the lines of, ' LTB, there she is laid in bed worrying and he's ignoring her' etc

But the sarcasm didn't disappoint.

I know, Verbal. Why can't a woman be more like a ... man?
Don't know how you put up with us, I really don't.

Verbalpunchbag Sat 30-Mar-13 19:10:53

Garlic, my comment was directed at the attitude of some on here, not differences between men and women, thanks for proving my point.

What Flisspaps said!

countrykitten Sat 30-Mar-13 19:33:43 crappy stereotyping there then?

Lovingfreedom Sat 30-Mar-13 20:07:13

Why are there so many patronising men on here recently? Is the screw fix web server down?

Sunnywithshowers Sat 30-Mar-13 20:19:22

Perhaps it's an Easter thing LovingFreedom. grin

It's because they are all the same, all thinking about the landing habits of flies.
Just hoping they haven't forgotten to do theirs up. wink

I'm not sure trying to convince us that you are that simple is such a good thing. I like men with slightly deeper thoughts. grin

Timetoask Sat 30-Mar-13 20:25:47

The cartoon was funny!

garlicbrunch Sat 30-Mar-13 20:39:29

I did get it, Verbal. We could have so much more fun if you were a little less focused on proving to - er, whomever - that we're a bunch of sour-faced man-haters.

Never mind, eh smile

Fairenuff Sat 30-Mar-13 20:44:29

You don't love us for 'who we are', that's a load of crap. If your dw cheated on you, didn't do any housework or childcare, spent all her money on herself, etc. you wouldn't love it, would you.

What a load of nonsense.

And what makes you think you can speak for all men anyway?

Verbalpunchbag Sat 30-Mar-13 20:48:29

I'm not trying to prove anything, it's a meaningless and not very funny cartoon, does the op deserve such sarcastic remarks? In my opinion no.

Never mind. ;)

Lovingfreedom Sat 30-Mar-13 21:01:10

I'm in the middle of painting a ceiling but all I can think is...does my bum look big in these overalls?

Verbalpunchbag Sat 30-Mar-13 21:08:17

Does it? :-)

Lovingfreedom Sat 30-Mar-13 21:10:52

No bigger than usual...grin
