Some women have male friends who they are fortunate enough to have available when they are trying to understand the male mind and maybe even get some useful tips and insight when they are having challenges withing their romantic relationships. Some people believe that a platonic relationship is impossible between a man and a woman who are both heteros-xual. This brings us back to square one; wondering what happens in the mind of a man.
Imagine if you could find a man who was willing to answer your questions without holding back because the “man code” dictates that he shouldn’t tell us everything. Well, below are some answers to some questions that one man was willing to answer:
Whenever I suggest we get together with some potential new couple friends, my husband doesn’t want to go. What can I do?
Going out with new couple friends is the worst. The interactions just aren’t as real as the ones we have with friends we made when we were young. Those are the friends who remember you barfing after the school talent show and who were there when your folks got divorced. You can talk about anything with them, as opposed to your fancy new couple friends who just think you’re gross if you bring up puke. All that new couple friends want to talk about is your home or your kids, or maybe restaurants (yawn). If you want to make friends, don’t look for couples. You’re in a great couple already–enjoy that, and go have a girls’ night.
Half-making the bed
My husband makes the bed, but he doesn’t put my throw pillows on. Why don’t men like all the cute things that make a bed look nice?
This is odd. Why does the bed need to look nice? Do you have people touring your home during the day? Do you live in the White House? What’s even stranger is that you’re piling useless pillows on your bed. They serve no purpose other than an aesthetic one, so you have to relocate them all before you can get in and use the bed for the purpose for which it was intended. What happens to the pillows when you need to sleep? Do you throw them on the floor? Think about your pillow-moving compulsion for a second and ask yourself: Who, in your marriage, should be writing to an advice columnist asking about bizarre bed-making habits?
