Mind Ninjas Part II

Monday, September 22, 2008
Guys are very quick to say girls are the vicious, controlling and manipulative ones. To quote Dane Cook, we mind fuck you guys all the time

The BF will turn the big 2-9 on October 3. If you ask him, it was the day God created perfection. (Really. He says that.)

Of course, there is also something else happening that day that I might have to attend. The BF says he doesn't care if I go.

BF: "It's not big deal. Go ahead and go. Have fun."

Well this was on Saturday. So, I ask him again today to make sure he didn't change his mind and was fine with me going.

Until he decided to pull the mind fuck trick on me that girls supposedly pull, and he yanked back his blessing. Well, sort of.

BF: Allison, it's just how girls say whatever to guys. It doesn't really mean 'whatever.' It means 'I dare you to.
Me: Are you daring me to go? I won't if you don't want me to.
BF: No. I'm just saying figure it out.
Me: You don't care, right? You said this isn't a big birthday to you and you don't mind.
BF: Yes dear.
Me: What does that mean?
BF: Figure it out. Now you know how guys feel when girls expect us to read between the lines of their "whatever's and fine's." It isn't that easy, is it?

Are we really that complicated?

A: I just had a giant uncomfortable flashback, so I think the answer is yeah, kind of....

There were a couple of situations that I didn't read in between the lines properly, and suddenly, there I am in hot water.

In my mind, it shouldn't be that hard - let's just be honest and put the true feelings out there all of the time, for better or for worse.

Ban mind ninjas of either sex, forever :-)

oh that's just mean of him. i try to avoid sounding like that as much as possible and be as clear to the point, i find things work out much better that way, haha.

oh he's being evil right now.

but in his defense, i think you should hang out with the cohabitant on his birthday.

wouldn't you want him to hang with you?

ooo am i stirring the pot?

matt - you are a genius.

katelin - if only it were always that easy.

alexa - yes, you are stirring the pot. I'll do something extra nice for him.

i dont think we're complicated. But I think men know how we can be when we are unhappy and that scares them. as it should

no narm comment on this one? interesting...

here's my two cents, can't everyone just say what they feel, wouldn't that make everything a little easier in the world?

i'd figure out a way to make the big 2-9 a big day one way or another.

consider this advice from your elder.
