Why Do Men Do What They Do?

17 Mar

So I was going to write a really introspective post today – one that was through provoking and gave a deep dive into my mind lately.  And then I decided to chuck that – it would have been boring. So I decided to share a couple of recent experiences I’ve had.  These have made me question:

Why do men do what they do?

I’ve said that I’m looking for a gentleman. Someone, who as my friend aptly stated, makes me feel like a lady. The two stories exemplify men who I don’t think will EVER make ANY woman feel like a lady.

  • Example #1: Last week, I was going somewhere for dinner and some guy said to me “Yo girly, nice smile.” Let’s dissect this for a second. No man in his right mind trying to get the attention of a 30-something woman should ever, and I MEAN EVER, refer to her as “girly.” Nor should he ever start off a sentence with “yo”…unless you want a mean comment back.
  • Example #2: As I was driving home last night, sitting in BUMPER TO BUMPER traffic (yea, I have a hellish commute to work, but I digress…) another man was in a bigass van next to me.  He kept looking over at me and made a motion for me to roll down my window.  What? WHAT?  Did you expect me to actually roll it down?  And if I did, what would you say to me? Something like “yo girly, nice smile. You sure can drive that car real well!”

I mean, honestly.  Gentlemen out there, please teach your brothers NOT to try and get the attention of a lady like these men did.  These “gentlemen” are giving you guys a real bad rap.

    When I try to pick up girls in traffic from the comfort of my van I normally ask them if they have any grey poupon. Like, “Yo girly, you got a great smile. You got any grey poupon?”

    Works every time!

    How do you know the guy in traffic wanted to hit on you? Maybe he wanted to tell you that your tires are low, or a headlight is out, or that there’s an axe-wielding maniac in your backseat?

    Or maybe he did want to hit on you, but had a really clever original line.

    I can’t explain or teach other men how to behave. I have enough problems figuring out my own behavior! 🙂

    Men are silly sometimes – they *really* don’t get women, the vast majority anyway 😉 How’s this for a “yo girly” moment? Jo and I were running together tonight and this group of guys went speeding by in their car and hollered (yes “hollered”) out the window “woooo! nice ASS!” Real nice.

      OK I have two comments for you.
      1 – HYSTERICAL. Though I do have to agree, you both have nice asses (yes, I said it, but it’s my blog. And I can!)
      2 – YOU WORKED OUT AGAIN TONIGHT? I don’t know if you’re my hero or if you’re completely nuts. Or I can just be really jealous that you worked out and I worked late and came home to eat a salad. Had every intention of working out, but didn’t – whoops.
      3 – Did I say I think you have a nice ass?

        LOL I didn’t read this until just now. You kill me, and totally made me blush with the ass-age comments. LOL! xoxo
