I have my own theory on why women get all bitchy when we stand our ground. Bear with me, because this takes a while. From the time girls begin to develop physically, they realize that guys will do anything to make them happy. I don’t care if you’re the nicest person alive, having people around you who are willing to cater to your every whim will effect your personality. And remember, this starts happening at 11 or 12. So you have these girls, who have grown up with the expectation that guys will knuckle under to their demands. By the time they’re in their 20’s, it seems like the normal pattern in life. Every time they were with someone who didn’t respond to their demands, their friends, and any guys who were trying to get into their pants would tell her that the guy was an asshole, thus reinforcing the behavior pattern. Guy who does what I want = The way things should be. Guy who doesn’t do what I want = Asshole. Of course, there’s no challenge there, it’s easier than housebreaking a puppy. So whenever we do what they want, they’re thinking “He’s just like all the rest. I can bend him to my will. Ho hum.” Of course, when we do stand our ground, we’re upsetting the natural laws of the universe. Face it buddy, we’re screwed. Just hide until it blows over. More often than not, I’ve found that she just needs to vent, and we happen to be the most available target.
