Awful girlfriends make terrible wives?

I found out another test that men like to give the women they date, it’s called the Sick Test, i.e. does she take care of me when I am sick. My friend LC said he happened to catch a nasty cold last week. Ah, but he wasn’t too weak to observe how his new girlfriend was going to handle his illness. He wondered, would she pass or fail?

Unfortunately, she didn’t seem all that concerned about him. She even steered clear of him for a few days because she “could not risk picking up his bug” this week (Ouch?). She still has not come by, only sending him occasional text messages to make sure he is still breathing.

I found it rather funny because I don’t approve of giving people relationship tests. LB ended up getting his feelings hurt and now he is questioning what kind of wife his girlfriend would make!

I think he is being utterly ridiculous but maybe I’m just taking up for his lady friend because I think she’s great for him. Do you think someone who has shown bad girlfriend/boyfriend behavior would make awful marriage partners?

Have you ever second-guessed your dating relationship after seeing something that would probably be too hard to deal with in a marriage?

Swiss the problem is that what got this country out of the great depression was industry! we don’t want that now, every one needs a white collar job, but everyone doesn’t have mindset or the education to have those. you have to have something for the ones that would never make it in any kind of educational institution to do. and McDonald’s aint it!! you’re right, right now all we have is the rich getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

See here’s the deal. Be a woman of GOD while you are dating your man.
Once you all get married- you can be his freak

Button, some of us can handle a freak, some of what Robert said was right, but it’s not just to woman’s job to keep it freaky, they both should keep it freaky. (don’t believe I agreed with Robert) (LOL)

Men like to feel appreciated and desired.
They love it when their woman takes the lead and surprises them with freakiness

@im swiss – “It should be about what is the best economic policy for the country.”

Unfortunity the State of Georgia and the majority of the southern states are not in step with the rest of the USA. For example Georgia is lagging behind because of politics (Governor, State Capital, etc.). The newly elected Governor is a crook and the State Capital is run by lobbyist who put money in the pockets of both republicans and democrats. The people of Georgia should be outraged but they continue to vote along party lines and keep the same people in office regardless of what they stand for. Until the people of Georgia elect and demand a fair and responsible government we all will suffer because of the actions of the majority (White republicans) who are still filled with hatred, fear and bigotry.

Let’s rephrase to “Men and women like to feel appreciated and desired.
They love it when their woman/man takes the lead and surprises them with freakiness.

bluz – I don’t generally check for Halloween but an opportunity to step out is an opportunity to step out. a local museum/cultural center is hosting a “costume optional” party. I’ve attended their events before. they are pretty cool because they have a couple of different dance floors/bars/food stations set up and you have the option of touring the galleries. sometimes they have live music in one area and a dj in another. I’m thinking about going and I’m thinking about throwing together a little something something.

Sassy that’s a medical condition, nothing pleasurable about having priapism. So your homework assisgnment is to find out how long a man can stay hard for pleasure that will not need him seeking medical attention.

I may even get some kind of costume just to dress up for the kids who will knock on my door! The past two years, I did the same costume and need to change it up this year. Just blanking on what. I usually procrastinate and pick something last minute!

disco – that does sound like a good time! I think you should go!

I think that if you focus on what you can do, what your role is- it is only natural that your partner will accomodate.

I already know the answer to that one, Button. As a general guideline, men should seek medical attention for an erection that lasts longer than 4 hours with no *ahem* “down time” involved. Now, if he’s a three-peater, he should seek me and not medical attention. :lol:

Chile boo…been there and done that in the name of science :oops: :lol:

And the answer is “case dependent”….meaning it would depend on the people involved. If he can get it up then she’s got to put that bad boy down..somehow ;-) Go for what you know…

Nope, not always the case…have heard plenty of chicks complain that their dude doesn’t reciprocate what they dish out in bed. Some men have a complex of getting down and dirty with their wifey, main chick whatever…but will rip it up with the side chick. But we can agree to disagree…Because only in a perfect world would one person’s actions be met with the same effort.

2) They picked the wrong dude. Plain and simple

Used to~ Sex is not the be all end all of a relationship, so if he’s great everywhere else and his only flaw is he’s not giving enough in the sack, I don’t think that means she picked the wrong dude. And how the heck does her being selfish cause him to not be able to take what she dishes out in the kip? I’m lost on that one…

there’s two types of men in this world: Elite men and non elite men

Elite men can only be obtained by emotionally available women
Elite men, cater to the their women, are supportive, do not cheat, are servants of GOD, are great fathers and husbands

Non elite men will be obtained by emotionally unavailable women
Non elite men cheat, are selfish, not supportive, are not servants of GOD, are crappy fathers husbands, and do not recriprocate in the bedroom, lack ambition, use people

What’s up blog gang?!!

On topic – Certain benefits come with being a wife/husband. I think it’s wise that any woman be sure not to confuse her roles. I’m your girlfriend until you put a ring on it. Sure, I may bring you soup & OJ or run and pick up your prescription for you , but hang up under you and catch your flu and be the mother hen – uhm no. Might sound mean, but I knew what I was doing before I married. Like one benefit you don’t get as a boyfriend is me doing your laundry. Just won’t happen. Now if you don’t want to marry me, if I don’t pass the “test”, then that’s your loss. Cause I’m a damn good wife!

I don’t get you. Because, realistically, if he were truly a “servant of God” she wouldn’t know if he was flat-lining in the kip or not because they wouldn’t be sexing until they were married. IJS…
