Men Are From Mars, Women Are From...





Wife’s Journal

Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn’t flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn’t say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, ‘Nothing.’ I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn’t upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it.

On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can’t explain his behavior I don’t know why he didn’t say, ‘I love you, too.’ When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep – I cried. I don’t know what to do. I’m almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

Husbands Journal

Another Arsenal player injured and Wenger's talking shit again.

So I found this story that I'm certain we can ALL relate to. Trust us ladies to overthink, over-analyze and overflog things in our heads while the guy is having some very random flimsy thought. Aaaaargh!

So let me throw it out there people, ladies and gentlemen;

In what ways do you wish members of the opposite sex were different?

Oh wow, I started making a list of ways I wish men could be different and it started getting too long and too personal so I told myself "Thelma this isn't about you" and stopped. LOL. So people, talk to me!

Just let me just these-

*I wish (most) men didn't think faithfulness/monogamy is such an outlandish concept and an unrealistic expectation. 

*I wish men had smaller egos and bigger conscience. 

*I wish men age just as fast as women do (LOL. I ran into an Ex from 8 years ago at Ember Creek last weekend and he looked exactly the same. Wish I could say the same for me! I'm tired of seeing men looking younger than their wives because they seem to have some anti-aging serum in their veins. (Most) Women get older, their bodies get rounder, their breasts droop and their flesh gets loose, men get older and they just acquire charm and character and look "dignified". Aaaaarghhh!)


So, back to you; In what ways do you wish members of the opposite sex were different? And have you had any experiences that remind of you the story above? Share!

  3. This happens to me every time.

    I have this male friend, we both work on the island and try to go home together whenever we can. One friday evening i called to ask if we could go home together and he said yes. I wouldnt usually call on a friday night cos thats "turn up" day but i asked and he said ok. We fixed a time to meet but when i called at the agreed time, he didnt pick up, and the phone was switched off when i tried again. I was so pissed! I'm very proud and i dont like feeling like I'm forcing friendship on someone so i took it really personal.

    I didnt call him for 2days and didnt reply his pings etc. By Tuesday he figured it out. He then called and had the gall to ask if i was fighting with him. When i explained and asked what happened, he apologised and said he assumed i KNEW that his phone died that night. How would i have known that?
    Chai! I thought all kinds of things between that Friday and Tuesday, not once did i think that his phone died. Imagine all the complicated things i thought and the answer was something so simple. He laughed and promised not to leave me hanging again without an explanation.

    Women tend to over think things a lot and i try to explain to my male friends not to wave off their women's feelings like that. They do annoying stuff or just shut down for whatever reason and expect the babe to understand just like that. Sometimes she will if its obvious but the Arsenal or ManU reasons will not make any sense to her and you have to explain before she starts thinking its that Cynthia girl that called you once 3months ago that you're thinking about

  4. Life is way EASIER with CLEAR communication!!!

    I Wish Men will Communicate Clearly! It's easier to say, "Babe, Arsenal lost their match today because so so n so n so, so I'm gonna sulk for a while".
    I will totally understand that & give u a breather!

    Tell me work/business isn't going great so I'll need to cut down on some money issues instead of looking at me like I'm being extravagant all of a sudden or my new friends are spoiling me!!!

    CLEAR *which includes Honest* Communication Dear Men! U'll enjoy ur women more that way *well, mature women ie*

    1. Lmao! Ruthy?
      How do you expect a soccer fan whose team has lost to have enough lightheartedness to explain why he's in such a mood. My dear you go wait till judgement day...

      I'm pissed off, I'm pissed off. You should be glad I'm not taking it out on you but just keeping quiet. In fact, that's the best you would get.

      Man utd loses to a rival team and you expect me to explain? Smh!

      Delete
    2. On that judgement day we'll see who'll be sentenced to a Fools prison!!!

      If it were a guy of a rival team won't the man have enough strength to explain & argue?

      I Live with 4 men! I know this 1st hand!

    3. We are saying the same thing. " If it were a guy" that is the point, u will never understand as a lady. Read the title of the post. Lol

  5. After pushing with all your muscles, your body expanding and shrinking all in the name of pregnancy and childbirth... Why wouldn't women look older than their men?

    Again, the women baby their men making sure they are 100% spiritually, emotionally and physically... Are you still wondering?

    ReplyDelete
  6. I wish men show more emotions,it will be nice sometimes

    ReplyDelete
  7. We are two clearly different species. We women are very emotional while men are mostly 'business-like'.

    I share the wish of men aging faster than women. There are a lot of women I know who look like their husbands' elder sisters.

  8. Men are the stronger sex abi, why aren't they the ones pushing out the babies.

  9. I wish men would communicate more n better instead of shutting down. we wont know until you tell us. women don't compartmentalize but men do a great deal. i can relate with the above very well! small silence and i begin to beat myself up, what have i done or said again? could it be work? is he having a rethink? blah blah. but am gradually learning to ignore all those things now that way i stay happier (even if its for 2hours before i start asking d numerous questions. Lols) guess thats how you know you truely love a guy when his silence bothers you.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
