My girlfriend just sent me this article. First of all, that picture is priceless. For those of you that never watched SatC, the lead character, Carrie, has an explosive fight with her boyfriend, fabulous make-up *** and then famously wakes up to a post-it that says "I'm sorry, I can't. Don't hate me."

So far, I know of at least five women who have gotten the #1 breakup line this year, one via text eerily similar to the above. Watching Mad Men with Joph the other night, they are pitching a Jaguar and they compare the car to a temperamental mistress. Don's wife, a hottie, sarcastically then asks if a wife is like a Buick in the garage.

I understand the feeling of being too young to be chained down with kids, but I suppose I have a hard time understanding what men view as the limiting aspect of a monogamous relationship besides the obvious. Does life really feel like it's ending if you aren't ******* multiple flavors? Can you not travel with a partner, not experience life? Most of these girls are HAWT, don't want kids, really good times. A simple case of the grass is greener? I'm not asking about your penises, boys. I know you like ***. What, in this modern age and with modern self-sufficient women, is so limiting? Is it simply a case of not finding the right gal? I'm curious. It's an epidemic among single gals my age.

Also P.S. Joph- Thanks for keeping me out of the dating pool, kid. Smiley: inlove

I think your assumption is flawed. You suggest it may be about liking ***, but I think you ignore the biological imperative. Granted, many men overcome this and are faithful in any relationship they are currently in, but that is not because they are more evolved and don't suffer the urge. It is because they are better at sublimating their nature to a conscious desire.

Or they have wives like me who laid down the law early in the relationship and pointed out that an affair would probably end in a nasty divorce no matter how sorry he is. I'm pretty tolerant of a lot of things, but the risk of disease that comes from an unfaithful partner is not one of them.

3 I don't feel like I'm a priority = Why aren't you paying attention to me constantly? My mom made me the center of her universe.
4 Too much fighting = I'm mad and it's your fault.
5 Your *** drive is too low = Why don't you always want ***? Because I always want ***.
6 Lack of punctuality = Congrats, you successfully countered #2, only to get hit with this.
7 There's someone else = #5, with some lying and deceit mixed in.
8 Bad kisser = See #7

I'm still relatively young (and, as of right now, unmarried), but I haven't run into any issues with this yet. Early on, there was a girl that I flirted with a bit, but that was only a few months into the relationship and during a long-distance period where I was fairly certain I was going to be dumped. Never went any further than that, and don't see myself having the urge to later on, either.

The fiancee doesn't come on too clingy, though. She didn't really bring up marriage until about 4 years in, and neither of us have much interest in kids at this point. I'm getting everything I could want monogamously right now, and if I ever feel that I'm not, talking about it seems to pretty much remedy whatever the issue is.

But like I said, I'm young and naive, so I doubt my anecdote is worth much on the subject.

9 I don't see a future with you

This is why I ended the relationship with my last girlfriend. Basically, I was living in the city, working in a pretty good job, and looking to start advancing my career/life. She, on the other hand, was still living at home, taking part-time classes at her local community college with no clear career plan in mind, and generally just hanging out and smoking pot.

There was just too much disparity between our medium- and long-term goals.

Does life really feel like it's ending if you aren't @#%^ing multiple flavors?


Yes. Does life really feel like it's ending if the one flavor you've decided is your favorite and latched onto isn't being made any more? Does it matter if the sous chef boils the egg instead of the chef de cuisine? Does it matter if the Bordeaux is decanted an hour before your drink it or five minutes? Does it really make you feel like stabbing yourself in the face when you think about Crème brûlée that doesn't crack?

It's a gender based evolutionary difference. It's fairly well understood. (I did say "fairly"). Men want to bone a lot of partners, women want to be the single focus of interest from their partner(s). Both genders struggle with normalizing instinct to fit rational existence. With varying degrees of success.

Nah, it's discovering that she didn't really clean it out before you blast her in the ***.

Yes, primarily because they don't feel sufficiently the focus of attention from their partner. Much less so because they want strange **** in itself. I don't know if you're driving at some similarity between motivation, but there really doesn't seem to be one. I'm not sure why it's a big deal. We have drives that don't "work" in the context of the modern social contract. I have a drive to eat ice cream and drink whiskey all day. Fortunately, I have the discipline to limit that sort of thing to every other day.

Even as a guy, I've never understood that about men, or why it's the case with some of them at least. I've just never had the urge to just sleep around I guess, and can't really grasp why others feel the need to. Maybe things will change someday or something. I suppose that I'm not one of the single men in the survey either... Smiley: rolleyes

Yeah, not all guys are like that, and some women ARE. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say it probably has something to do with testosterone levels. Testosterone makes people horny, which is why men are more likely to want to **** everything than women. I think that if you've never felt that way before, you probably aren't going to start feeling that way at some random point in the future. I could be wrong though.

I've kinda just assumed it's closer to what Pigtails said. Either those men who feel the need to sleep around are wired differently than me, or they just have ****-poor self control.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something, but what does saying "It's not you, it's me" have to do with a fear of monogamy? Maybe that was the point of the episode, and you didn't mention it? Just didn't really see the tie-in.

I struggled to not use this line when I dumped my last girlfriend. Really it was her - I could point out several reasons I didn't see a long-term relationship working out, and none were a fear of monogamy; at most it was a fear that "she's not right for you." I'm a serial monogamist and have never had an issue being "exclusive" with a girl. But I'll also be the first to admit that many times I flirt and date girls who I wouldn't pick as life partners, only to (unsurprisingly) break up a few months later. Case-in-point, issues with the last girlfriend:

-Clash on religious beliefs.
-Clash on family (I always felt uncomfortable around her family)
-Clash on where we are in our lives... I was 4 years older and she was still in college. I wanted to move out of town; she was there for at least two more years
-Personality differences, especially emotions. I'm pretty easy going and open when talking about what's bothering me. She broods, looks internally, and gives the silent treatment for days on end. This would repeat almost every month, getting more and more frustrating each time.
- Physical attraction. Vain as it is, from when I met her to when we broke up she put on nearly 40 pounds and became by far the biggest girl I've dated. It's awkward to have a 21-year-old with blatant stretch marks. As her father is over 350 lbs, I didn't like the future I was seeing.

Anyway, fear of monogamy was never an issue - if anything, I thought she'd make a great wife. Just not for me. Most of my friends are similar - mid-20s and not looking for a fling, but a partner with whom they can spend their lives. Thus I've never really understood where this "fear of monogamy" stereotype comes from; none of my social group have ever displayed it.

Edit: Going by the list, by tops would be:

1. I don't see a future with you
2. Too much fighting
3. Lack of punctuality (one girl I was with would routinely and constantly double or triple book times, then call up and cancel. Frustrating as all ****. Guess this could be "I don't feel like I'm a priority)

See, the part where you mention self control indicates that I'm correct about your lack of veracity. We call that "a tell". (I'm just kidding, no one really uses that term outside of terrible B movies).

I'm going to assume you aren't shockingly handsome, witty, charming, have an air of innate mischief and, yes, cruelty lurking just beneath a polished veneer that women find irresistible. I suspect you're mastery of "self control" and lack of desire for other partners has more to do with opportunity than discipline. Now, I'd never cheat on Nexa, obviously, but pretending I have a complete lack of desire for any of the other 3 billion women on the planet is just lying.

If you mean the apartmentmate last year who suffered a mental breakdown and got arrested twice (once for trespassing while hallucinating, and once for firing off a fire extinguisher in someone else's apartment), then yes? Not sure what you're referring to otherwise. Love my apartmentmates this year.

Edit: Oh, unless you're talking about my old roommates back in college several years ago. Not sure if I talked about them here. One was super religious and dating a girl who was practically a carbon copy of his mother; the other one is engaged and has had some issues, but generally they're ok.

Yeah, I suppose that's true. How foolish of me not to discriminate between sexual attraction and being attracted to women you want to join a quilting circle with, or who you'd really LOVE to change the sweet sweet oil of their Honda Accords. Oh yeah, that drive to slide under the dark space beneath the engine and just shove that wrench hard enough to loose that sweet sticky 10w40, I know what you're talking about man.

Really, I have no idea. You want to **** women you're "attracted" to. That's how that works, son. If you have trouble dealing with that because you think it's "wrong" or whatever the hang up is, that's not my problem.

I may not know him in person, but I think protein is handsome, witty and charming. I do have a thing for nerds though, so there you go.

You want to @#%^ women you're "attracted" to. That's how that works, son. If you have trouble dealing with that because you think it's "wrong" or whatever the hang up is, that's not my problem.


Not really. I don't know maybe I'm missing something here. I've had no problems in the past turning down *** with women who I thought were attractive, and I can't really imagine that changing now that I'm in a relationship. I guess I don't see why the two have to be intermixed to that degree. There's more than goes into wanting to have *** with someone than whether or not they're attractive.

There really isn't. There may be differing reasons you find yourself wanting to have *** with someone. I think that's a common experience. I've found myself attracted to smart women who if I didn't know them would read as "ugly" in a photograph. I've found myself attracted to women because of their physical beauty, regardless of if they're evil idiots (maybe that's even more attractive).

Now, it happens that I stumbled upon Nexa who happens to tick all of the boxes for me. Smart (to a degree most people can't adequately understand), crazy, driven, physically stunning, kind, glib...you get the idea. But people I've been attracted to in the past would have had some combination of fewer of those attributes. Sure, maybe I wouldn't have boned the ugly or particularly insane ones (ok, that's a lie, I'd totally do the insane ones), but that in no way means my "attraction" to them wasn't a sexual one.

Have you seen Pulp Fiction? Do you remember the "foot massage" discussion? That's where you are here. Preening something isn't related to *** because you think you should. When you turned down women you found "attractive" you still wanted to have *** with them, but *something* outweighed that urge. It's not hard.

Or maybe there was some other reason! Try the veal.

I dunno, I get the feeling we're just debating semantics here. Either way really I guess, but I'd still contend that if I had wanted to have *** I would have.

So anyway, veal huh? Tasty?

That would make your *** drive completely overwhelming and beyond your control. Which may be the case, but I'm not sure it's describing what you're trying to get at. What you're trying to get at, I suspect, is the sad beta male rationalization of not wanting what you can't have. Anyway, while not actually semantics, you're right that there's no reason to continue discussing it.

Oh, I forgot about "the list." Yeah, we have that too, and we also have a matching "we need a threesome" list for the 2-3 people who land on both our fantasy lists. Like Neil Patrick Harris and Scarlett Johansson.

Not really worried here either.

Real Life had a comic about that a while back.

If you're having the "the List" conversation, the thing to do is let her go first and name a bunch of celebrities. Then when it's your turn, name off your neighbors, your partner's friends, etc. Epic Lulz will ensue, trust me.

Probably to some degree.

I mean it's not like you can really opt out of that sort of thing, and guys are pretty good at stepping in and defining you if you don't do so yourself. I think I talked a little about it in the "Transience of Manhood" thread, IIRC. Here's a linky, and there's probably more tidbits buried in there as well. It's not that I'm completely in the dark or anything, I understand what he's referring to. It just one of those male social hierarchy things that I guess I never really 'got' for lack of a better word. I mean, I guess I've always been a bit disinterested in those kinds of things. Not that I don't play my part from time to time, but it's just not something I particularly care for I guess. For better or for worse, I can't say avoiding those kind of things has really ever held me back in life or anything. Another reason why I don't really understand the reasoning behind it I suppose. Smiley: rolleyes

Or maybe I'm just passive aggressive or something... Smiley: sly

Peripherally related to the topic, I had a discussion with a male friend who was considering proposing to his girlfriend. She had basically told him that if the relationship wasn't going to move forward, she wanted out. He was resentful (nobody likes the ultimatum, right?), but smart enough to know that they had something special.

I asked him why he was hesitating, and he essentially said, "Because what if we get married and then someone better comes along?"

I think a lot of guys fear commitment because they want to keep their options open, unfortunately in many cases WAY the **** past their sell-by date.

Anyway, I smacked the back of his head and told him, "You are beyond lucky that THIS one came along. She's so far out of your league, you should be kissing her feet or the body part of her preference on an hourly basis. Get over yourself, hero. No one better is going to come along, moran."

Men. Can't live with 'em, can't sell 'em for parts. Legally.

Speaking of the List, is it weird that 3 of the 5 on my husband's list are also on my list?

Ray never saw marriage as limiting himself. He was more afraid of that I would be feeling limited in our marriage. Every marriage has its ups and downs and there are times when the routine becomes rout to rut to God-awful brain-numbingly monotony. And somehow you make the tedious into a string of "wow" moments all over again.

My girlfriend and I have similarly overlapping lists. Those are firmly set to threesome's if we are ever able to pull them off.

I think your assumption is flawed. You suggest it may be about liking ***, but I think you ignore the biological imperative. Granted, many men overcome this and are faithful in any relationship they are currently in, but that is not because they are more evolved and don't suffer the urge. It is because they are better at sublimating their nature to a conscious desire.
Pardons, yesterday was a *********** and just looking at these now. I ignore the biological imperative because I think it's sexist and *********

That's a decent enough point, but I don't know if it's about laying down the law as much as agreeing on expectations of behavior. Joph and I agreed very early on in our dating life that cheating was unforgiveable, a dealbreaker. No matter what it is to anyone else. I think that's why some of these relationships struggled. I have a theory that they were either not entirely honest about their expectations or never discussed them in the first place.

This is why I ended the relationship with my last girlfriend. Basically, I was living in the city, working in a pretty good job, and looking to start advancing my career/life. She, on the other hand, was still living at home, taking part-time classes at her local community college with no clear career plan in mind, and generally just hanging out and smoking pot.

There was just too much disparity between our medium- and long-term goals.
Pretty cohesive and logical. Can't hate.

It doesn't take a superhuman degree of self-control, and men aren't the only ones who enjoy dorking like rabbits with a rainbow of partners. The idea that men like *** above anything but that to women it's a snare used to trap a husband and then withold is antiquated and frankly, obsolete.
