Monday Funday: with male fantasy girlfriends

Sorry about the last MF - I scheduled it ahead and it clearly didn't work. You can see Sarah Haskin's Target Women on Jewellery here instead, as I just can't get it to go (user error I'm afraid).

And here's something, ah, new. From The Six Types of Women That All Men Hate:
It's time for me to clear the air. There seems to be this misconception, which suggests that men have lower standards when it comes to choosing a mate.

That couldn't be further from the truth.

In fact, men are a lot pickier than we lead you to believe. In an effort to prove this point, I've decided to share "Six Types of Women That All Men Hate."Make sure you pay close attention to these women. And if it sounds like I'm describing you, then that may explain why your last boyfriend told you he was going to church and never came back.
My personal "favourite" was number 3. Reading between the lines, I'm guessing the author would prefer a lady who is mute, (except for when she) laughs at all his (lame) jokes, waits for him to take the lead, doesn't inquire about her man's internal thoughts, and has no tear ducts.

Yep, that was great, you left out one type though, the "I don't want to go to the cricket, I want to go to the flower show" type.

Even woman needs to read this, its from the great 90's song.

The Truth about men

We don't like to go out shoppin',
We don't care what's on sale.
We just want to sit with a bag full of chips,
Watchin' the NFL.
When you come over at half-time,
An' say: "Does this dress fit too tight?"
We just look you in the eye with a big fat lie,
An say:"Uh, uh: Looks just right."

Well, that's the truth about men.
Yeah, that's the truth about us.
We like to hunt and golf on our days off,
Scratch, an' spit, an cuss.
It don't matter what line we hand you,
When we come draggin' in.
We ain't wrong; we ain't sorry,
An' it's probably gonna happen again.

We hate watchin' "Steel Magnolias".
We like "Rambo" an' "Die Hard 4".
Jump up and down like fools when we see the new tools,
At the Home Depot store.
We don't really wanna take you to dinner,
At some fancy restaurant.
The only reason we do is 'cause we know it leads to,
The one thing that we all want.

Well, that's the truth about men.
Yeah, that's the truth about guys.
We'd rather play guitars and work on cars,
Than work on the problems in our lives.
An' though we might say it to you,
Every now and then,
We ain't wrong; we ain't sorry,
An' it's probably gonna happen again.

Well, if you want to know what we're all thinkin',
It's nothing too complex.
It's just somethin' cold for drinkin',
And a whole lot of s-e......

Yes, that's the truth about men.
Yeah, that's the truth about us.
We like to hunt and golf an' drive around, lost,
Scratch, an' spit, an' a whole lot of other disgustin' stuff.
It don't matter what line we hand you,
When we come a-crawlin' in.
We ain't wrong; we ain't sorry,
An' it's probably gonna happen again.

We ain't wrong; we ain't sorry,
An' it's probably gonna happen;
Sure, it's gonna happen;
You know it's gonna happen again.
An' that's the truth about men.

You know it, son.

Yes because half the population fit into the exact stereotype you've described.

Anna said...

My partner likes cricket and flowers - and that's why I like him.

Danielle said...

Brett, the point: you haz missed it.

Lucy said...

But, guys, repeating tired and false stereotypes about *both* sexes makes it all okay!

Julie said...

Yeah, this thread so didn't turn out the way I expected...

Quoth the Raven said...

Speak for yourself Brett. I love Cricket and gardening and I hate golf. "Rambo" an' "Die Hard 4" -Only after a lobotomy, though that goes for Steel Magnolias as well.

Brett Dale said...

Ya cant go wrong with Die Hard, I prefer the rocky series to the Rambo myself.

Hugh said...

That song was written in the 90s and it references Die Hard 4?

Yep, it was written when there was rumours of a die hard four coming out, the movie got put on hold.

That was fun!

I think I've had an ex who was a #4. They do eventually tell you what was bothering them; most times you have no idea that action had upset them. It's (usually) not that you intended to upset them; please, just tell us what went wrong, and we can try to redress it ...

So, are you trying to say that women are all perfect as they are?

From my (male) side of things, I certainly wouldn't say that I'm perfect as I am.
I think you should be open to changing yourself in a relationship - wherever the suggestion comes from.

If I have some (perhaps unconscious) habit that annoys my gf, and they tell me about it, then I will attempt to change it or at least minimise it while I am with them.

I want the relationship to work; I'd try my hardest to do that and improve myself - and I'd hope that any gf would do the same.

How about you on THM do a list of annoying personality traits in men - I'd be curious to read it ...

And, did you see this article by the same author:
http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/638589/6_types_of_men_that_all_women_hate.html?cat=41

Perhaps they're not so one-sided?

Julie said...

Anybody's list of annoying traits in such a wide group of the population as "men" or "women" would be a bit senseless I tend to think. What does it achieve other than to reinforce stereotypes and/or make yourself look like a dick?

I'll have a look at that other link though Bevan, thanks.
