Fight Like a Girl

A friend called last night and we discussed a fight she was having with her boyfriend.  From what I know about him, he’s an upstanding man and a “guy’s guy”.  Long story short, she mistakenly assumed that he was ignoring her when his phone was turned off (as he works in a classified environment that requires all phones to be turned off during work hours).  As I pointed out, ignoring someone is passive aggressive and, so far, this guy’s “fighting style” has never been catty or passive aggressive.  Also, people’s fighting styles are pretty consistent. Unless you’re dating and/or marrying someone of the same sex, the verdict is:

Lesson # 16:  Say No to Catty Men

Why?  Because one woman in the house is enough (again, unless you’re with someone of the same sex).  “Men” who are catty or passive aggressive are not really men.  Rather, they are boys in men’s bodies.  As a woman, you want (and need) someone who compliments you and is of generous heart (cattiness and pettiness are the opposite of being generous).  So, again, ladies–actions (or behaviors, in this case) do speak louder than words.  Keep your eyes open and observe and you shall receive your answer (as to whether he is worthy of your giving him the best years of your life).


What’s Love Got to Do with It?

Very little in the early stages of dating.  As I have come to realize, the early stages of dating can and often do set the tone for the entire relationship.  It is often said that women nowadays are too picky.  I say that women nowadays are not picky enough!  The key is to be picky about the right things (ultimately, the things that matter).

We see all too often women in their 20s squandering their youths in pursuit of men who possess absolutely nothing of value in terms of providing for stable, loving, and secure relationships.  Some say that youth is wasted on the young.  I say that it’s time for women to demand what is rightfully theirs and beneficial to posterity!
