A Guy Thing?

I will never forget the crazy night I had with a guy I was seeing. We were preparing to leave his house and head to a concert together. As we were backing out the driveway an ex-fling was on the front sidewalk looking a little upset (read: crazy). She wanted to know why he hadn’t called, or returned her calls/messages/emails.

In that kind of situation, a man really has two options: be upfront and give full disclosure on who the woman was, or drive off and pretend she wasn’t really standing there yelling. Which one do you think he chose?  Well, he thought he would just avoid her until the evening was over.

Obviously this didn’t work, and of course minutes later she began calling him.  Why do most guys avoid confrontation of breaking up? Is it just a guy thing, though? Is it hard for women to be the one that calls the time of death on the relationship?

I know a couple of guys that will act like a complete blockhead so that the woman will have no choice but to end things. They would rather do this then explain that she is not the right one for him. Ladies, have you ever experienced this before? Have you ever dated a man who avoided confrontation? Did you call him on it or cut your losses? Have you ever been the one to avoid confrontation in a relationship?

Guys, do you think that some men are like kids and think that men do what women let them do? Is that another way to let a man be a man? Do you think men push the limits to see what they can get away with when it comes to relationships? How would a woman handle a man who is doing that in a dating relationship? Should she stand her ground and let him know he crossed the line?

Don’t know how “placebo” jumped in my head, but it made sense. I will never look at that word the same way.

“Piece of meat” escaped me so I said “interim piece,” but was trying to think of that phrase….brain fart!

This weekend I’ll be attending a wedding, going to a “pole dancing” class with my friends (this should be interesting after a glass or two of wine), and then chillin’ with my guy.

YES to tailgaiting. Loves it…

Tailgating could be another word for jumpoff. Depends on how you like it.

Kym – you’re asking the wrong one about that. I was planning to have a Falcons den before I moved to Houston. The house I have now doesn’t have room for one.

Raqi – why you trynna pollute such a wonderful, innocent even such as tailgating :lol:

@Lioness, bad attempt at connecting the dots…she said she almost wet herself, talking about jumpoffs, I thought of the blanket getting wet due to the moisture. It’s hard to tie my train of thinking so it now makes sense. It made sense when I thought of it (LOL)!
