How much support do men need?

If you have ever watched HBO’s Entourage, you are familiar with the character, Ari Gold, played by Jeremy Piven.  Ari Gold is a foul-mouthed, raging jerk with a temper that makes you wonder how he has managed to get through the day without a black eye.  Since he is a Hollywood agent, this behavior manages to work for him in business.

In a recent episode, Ari’s wife walked out on him after his trademark public tirades embarrasses her.  Apparently he felt abandoned by his own wife.  She tells him that she refuses to sit by when her husband is acting like a classless idiot.  He says that is the exact moment when a wife should be supportive. (Paraphrasing)

I know loyalty and support is pretty high on a man’s mental list of what he needs from a woman.  When a man does not feel supported he is less likely to trust his partner to be there when he needs him.

So what happens when a man is dead wrong but still wants to be supported? How should a woman handle it? Does she keep her opinions to herself and offer him support and comfort?

How much support should a woman be willing to offer and provide when she does not agree with what he is doing or how he is handling it?

Is it fair to ask for the same loyalty and support from men that they need and want?

Guys, have you ever dated a woman who wasn’t accepting and supportive? Did you let her know that is what you thought about her?

Ladies, do you think women have a hard time supporting men in relationships? What have you learned about being supportive in a relationship? How did your mothers handle it?

Anyone here like to smell other peoples shoes, underwear, or belly buttons?

Anyone drink out the juice cartons when no one else is home instead of pouring it in a cup?

Anyone enjoy a nice thumb in their arse when getting hit from the back?

This reminds me of playing Questions back in school…we’d be half wasted sitting around asking QUestions. Sometimes the questions would be so crazy that it would throw the next person off to want to answer it, and they’d have to drink drink drink!!! lol

Anyone here forgot the name of the person that they last had sex with?

LOL White Man. I have a ton of lingerie already, so buying more, not much of a gift at all. Now if I told him I bought it on sale, well I then would have to try to decipher if his woody is from the look of the lingerie on me or from the thought of knowing that I saved us some money again. LOL

@Raqi Per him sending them as admirer was to show admiration. He says he was trying to do something sweet and thought that he had put enough clues for me to know they were from him. He stated he has no reason to think I am doing anything.
@Melo LOL.

The flowers yes were my favorite but as @Raqi says I would think most men knowing that would want it to be known the gift is from him. Over the weekend he never spoke of them so come Monday morning, favorite flowers or not they weren’t from him (or so I thought) so I trashed them. Out of what I felt was respect for our relationship I had no reason to keep them.

blue – yeah I just went out and found some nice plain shot glasses then took them to THings Remembered in the mall to have them engraved. I got the one with the little silver color added to the engraved part so that it would show better.—>Inexpensive

Sorry, ARed ~ had to make a mad dash to a meeting. I meant to say when Jaie came on, she seemed so sweet and smitten by the blog I thought not to put her through a tough screening process. I think I was elated that one actually came out of Lurksville asking for a vest that I threw caution to the wind…It won’t happen again. All newbies “mettle” must be assessed before they can actually don a vest. (Assessment process usually takes 2 weeks).

I have since made this correction in the WLB…all in agreement please say YAY! I need a quorum of at least 8 to make this official.

Jaie, yeah he should have told you. However that was nice gesture.
I love lilies so if I received them as a gift I would know they are from my husband or brother even if they came without a card. Anytime I have received flowers from a man I was dating and I had not yet told him lilies are my favorite, it was a gift of roses or carnations.

If I was to now anonymously receive lilies just because and they not be from my hub or bro, I would first assume they are from someone from my past.

Which again would be a cause for concern. LOL

No news except I had to go down and meet with my teenage nephew. He has let his obsession with boobies become a problem. He lets them distract him so much that it has become a problem in his grades. It is natural for a teenage boy to have interest in the girls, but he cannot let it be such an issue.

Let’s just say that it was an interesting discussion.

I learned way more than I expected to learn. :shock:

Seriously, he is football player and he is 5′11″ at 14 years old. Girls are calling him quite a bit, and my sister has taken his cell phone (I didn’t think that he need one to begin with). There are all kinds of pics texted boobies on it too. My sis had to meet with the girl’s mothers.

As the old sayin goes, if it ain’t one thing, it’s another.
