Just like one of the guys

When a single woman suddenly realizes she has an entire collection of guy friends, she probably will wonder, “Why aren’t I dating any of my amazing guy friends?!”

I think being just like one of the guys has it’s perks, but what should a girl do when all she gets invited to are boy’s night out? Once a guy perceives a girl as a homie, one of the guys, could she ever make him see her differently?

Guys do men like women who are cool and non-girly? If these are the types that seem low maintenance, why is it hard to ask them out? Why go for the high maintenance type if being like one of the guys is a positive thing?

You don’t really mean this do you ↑ Have we’ve been watching the same trial

Leggs – I was saying she MAY have some change of heart even though I don’t see that happening in the forseeable future. She has a certain arrogance about her…maybe she knew all along which helped her remain so cold or removed…for lack of a better word

Agree on the Nancy Grace comments. She definitely has a superiority complex.

BTW, SC, she calls Casey “tot mom”….

Are you all forgeting she was proven not guilty as a murderer, so she may not be getting any just desserts. Stop calling her a murderer 7 women and 5 men all agreed that she is not and they have more facts than we do.

Leggs – Sounds wonderful. Do you like moscato wine? Villa Alena is a sparkling moscato that is wonderful. I got some at Trader Joes and I believe Publix once.

Well, as a juror you’re suppose to remove all emotional ‘rationale, and go off facts alone. So Purp does have a point…if evidence was not provided to convict her of murder WITHOUT any doubt, then there you have it…

Slim, you are right. Emotions are not facts.

@Slim and Purp – that’s EXACTLY the point one of the court analysts was making last week. He said the defense’s closing argument would include something like, “no matter what you think of her as a mother or as a person, you must separate that from the evidence you have been given.”

Guess it worked.

Purp I agree she is not a murder, but she IS a SLUT – per her Attorney of course. She will be delt with in the court of public opinion.

Prayer is not a “spare wheel” that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a “steering wheel” that directs the right path.

You are either a member of the pack or prey. If the guys don’t have a predator in the group, you can usually be pretty comfortable around the men. But if one of them is a predator, then the group dynamics will change.

Until then, the men will accept a woman as an equal in their group, as long as you can keep up with the rest of the pack. Try to be the pack leader, and they will slash your throat out in competition.

Also, a group of men with a woman member no longer works when a second woman comes on stage. Once the women compete to be the alpha female, the men respond, either by seduction or leaving you or the pack.

Think of young boys in a Cub Scout Den. The dynamics are not much different.
