4. Even though he has a girlfriend he still goes on group dates (goukon) for fun

  • Yea, I know how you are. You say all that stuff but if you find a nice, sensitive, respectful and loving man, you drop him like a hot potato for a Bad Boy that will slap you around late Saturday night, you SLUTS!!!

  • 1. = Asshole

    2. = I cook for myself so…..

    3. = It is

    4. = That seems a little dumb don’t you think ?

    5. = Maybe you don’t understand how guys talk to each other

    6. = No, She has a schedule too, I’d make sure it was okay first. I don’t get what low priority means though in this context @.@

    7. = People think stuffing your face like a fat ass idiot is manly ? Guess I better get me to a buffet.

    8. = Neither Do I

    9. = I rather not get lost, I’d probably ask, It is just awkward for some guys to do things like that, what is so strange about it ? I’m sure there are things women feels uncomfortably doing too.

    10. = What ? Sorry, I’m can’t hear you over how awesome I am. Just Kidding, That guys is a complete ass, I usually would assume he would see her and ask something like ,, hey, what’s up ? ” ,, Anything new? ” or ,, How was your day ?
    ” I guess I’m the only one that does that. Isn’t there anything else to talk about ? Try to lead him into another topic, I can’t really think of anything good, maybe just something simple, like, ,, That reminds me of …. ” usw…

  • Marriage is heaven

    It becomes hell when you let a lazy demon in your life.

    The demon is you or her or him and you.

    Whoever does the other wrong, just isn’t true to themselves they can find their own Heaven seeking your hell as well.

  • Marriage = many things… But it doesn’t end there….

    Ending up alone in your dreamhome after 60 years of marriage and your wife dies…. NOW THAT! That is the END! It happened to my uncle…. Now he cries in his sleep or when he is lonely. Good thing his grandchild appeared!

    LOLZ at the grandchild… might be future gay…. Hard-headed too….

  • Pure psychology. No mysteries here, except for those with housewife mentality. That’s why striving for equality between sexes is great. So you can find life companion that is like best friend on par to you, not some brand-blinded, money-spending household dumb machine.

    • You can’t suddenly “flip” the gay switch in response to something like the fact that men don’t want to get married when the laws universally assrape them.

      You are either gay or not. You can’t change your sexual preferences. You don’t even decide them really.

  • #5 is simple. Women have such tremendous egos from being put on a pedestal by most men and society in general as well as a complete lack of scrutiny of their actions that they blow up or get huffy when someone says something other than what they want to hear. Combine this with the mainstream contempt for masculine personalities and you’ve got a recipe for a lot of guys walking on eggshells around them and that sort of dress down their behavior.

    This is mostly just spineless conformist men, though, and I guess they don’t understand this.

  • 1. Not true! I totally love my girl to bits! I just don’t wanna vocalize it 24/7

    2. God, I love stew. Maybe she knows how to make some, I should ask…

    3. Uh… Yeah, I still have a ton of things I haven’t done yet, and marriage would stop those plans dead in their tracks.

    4. What? No.

    5. It’s a guy thing.

    6. Hey, just because I bought this $60 Aegis figure doesn’t mean I wouldn’t have used the money to get her something nice if I saw it.

    7. I like to eat. I may be a skinny asian, but I love food.

    8. I never said…

    9. Fine.

    10. Read #1.

    • Depends on the genetics really, among other factors.. Though your statement is correct.

      Example; My family has stupid high metabolism; I’m a big eater simply because I have to be, otherwise malnutrition.

      I eat about 30-40 pounds of food a day; I only weigh 130 at 5’9″ or so.

  • I ACCIDENTALLY says:

    #2 As long as she can cook some edible meals, I won’t complain

    #3 true, unless you have a “wife” who has the same hobbies (or at least is curious)

    #4 if you have ladies night out (or something like that) then let the guys have their fun

    #5 nothing wrong there

    #6 girls may have lives, but guys have their own lives too

    #7 normal

    #9 sadly true for many

  • Men are simple. Thats all people need to know. There should be an article about the mysteries of women than men. Someone in here said it right: these are just insecurities and fears not to mention what men do with people typically period. If men were anymore complicated, they are either gay, or our fuzzy little man brains would explode.

  • 1. Could be a case of him needing to be careful what he wished for. It happens all the time: You find a girl who seems great, and then when you start dating her she shows the bad habits and such which she concealed when she was single.

    2. Hey, why complain if he doesn’t expect much out of your cooking? I mean, really.

    3. It IS.

    4. Sometimes, you only get rare opportunities to hang out with friends. Might have to be on a group date. And hell… If the woman’s doing her job right, she shouldn’t have to worry about him looking elsewhere.

    5. This is called testosterone. Want your date not to do this? Don’t go out with men.

    6. Again, it happens. If a woman is such a low priority for a man, she’s not doing her job right.

    7. See five.

    8. This is a simple fear of commitment. Get used to it.

    9. Men figure crap out for themselves.

    10. (I’ve got nothing on this one)

  • 1.) Well, sometimes guys get confused about what kind of attraction they have. If it was purely visual attraction, you might be disappointed after getting to know someone and think it’s boring after a while. Also, telling someone your feelings and getting them returned is like a milestone and afterward, kind of lost on what to do.

    2.) Huh? I’m just gonna ignore that.

    3.) It’s inevitable. All guys think that wives are going to nag you and from I’ve seen, wives can be fierce.

    4.) If he goes on goukon, that means he’s still looking around. If you aren’t too serious and just dating, it’s not a problem; if he likes you, you’ll know it apparently. But if you are boyfriend and girlfriend, then that’s an issue.

    5.) That’s just how guys are.

    6.) Hmm? I’m not sure that applies to everyone. Usually from what I’ve seen, girlfriends are high priority. Then again, this is Japan.

    7.) What? I haven’t really seen “manliness” displayed that way, unless you mean an eating or drinking contest. Eating really spicy dishes can be manly though.

    8.) There are many guys that feel like this. There’s no use to force them. Different strokes for different folks.

    9.) I think a lot of people are like this.

    10.) I don’t know why a guy would talk about his girlfriend for long, unless he wanted to show her off. And that can be annoying.

    I dunno about marriage, but I would love to find some kind of fun significant other just to enjoy animated series and games with. Maybe one kid to pass the nerdiness down to. :< My bro and his girlfriend aren't married and they're still going strong. 😀

  • 1. He was desperate to date you, but once you started dating he no longer cares

    a) you ain’t what he though to be
    b) he got past the hardest trial and is now relieved
    c) he just “seems” like he doesn’t care, some people(am like this) attitudes portray or seem like the person doesn’t care but they do.

    2. He thinks he’s really doing well if his girlfriend can cook a stew
    [there appear to be some substantial differences in opinion between the sexes as to how easy it is to prepare Japanese cuisine based on stewing, or “nimono”]

    women who can cook are rare these days and shows you have some upbring or a good woman

    3. He thinks it’s all over once you get married

    It is, most marriage end and they end either calm or bad very bad, mostly it ends bad with one side in pieces and the other happily ever after with another.

    4. Even though he has a girlfriend he still goes on group dates (goukon) for fun

    He either thinks of you as a fuck buddy or is a asshole chose your pick.

    5. Whenever he’s with his friends he starts talking tough
    when we’re with our friends we act completely different from our usual self.

    6. He thinks he can see his girlfriend any time he likes so she becomes a low priority

    believe me spending 24 hours together, is not so good and you would feel like we’re to “attached”

    7. He tries to impress with his manliness by eating large helpings and hot dishes

    not all men do this for compete, some of us are actual big eaters.

    8. He says he doesn’t see the point in marrying so he won’t marry

    it only for religious belief, and is a scarcity(suppose) ceremony and is only needed for people are truly in love and that doesn’t happen much now days.

    9. He won’t ask people about things he doesn’t know as he doesn’t want to be indebted to them

    typical male trait

    10. He ignores his girlfriend and talks solely about himself

    he is a asshole, dump him

  • 1. Dote too much, and the girl will think she’s too much of a catch and try to trade up. This is so basic it could be classed as general human psychology. Of course many men will do the same, but no matter how you love your GF, you have to play tough/aloof a certain amount.

    3. Guys who do this are idiots. Most I’ve seen do this. Most I’ve seen also get divorced.

    4. That’s called having friends.

    6. See 1. If a guy is too loving, he’s “clingy,” and dumped.

    8. At least in English speaking countries, this is because too many women marry just to rob you blind and leave. Sadly in some places, you don’t even have to marry if you’re intimate enough…

    10. Jerks.

  • Marriage DOESN’T have a point. Why go through all that ceremonial bullshit just to stay together? There’s no need for it whatsoever. Just keep the boyfriend/girlfriend status. Marriage is expensive and just complicates things. For example, divorce. If you’re simply in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, you don’t have to sign a bunch of legal paperwork shit. You can just leave the bastard/bitch.

    Actually, pretty much ALL traditions are stupid.

  • Regardless of anyone’s company I always eat large or spicy dishes.

    10. He ignores his girlfriend and talks solely about himself.

    A lot of guys must be complete fags then, isn’t it usually girls who blab away?

    • So you’ve never meet someone who thinks they are “cool” because they eat hot chilli-peppers and similar stuff? If so, be glad, it’s a annoying and childish version of the “my dick is biggest!” competition that men or “grown boys” like to engage in.
      Though it is hardly a mystery why men engage in various “penis size” competitions, it’s just a form of trying to impress on the ladies (aka “get laid”) and to establish your rank among your fellow males. It’s just that when it comes to ridicilous “games” like who can eat the hot food, he small head down there probably did to much thinking…

  • > 2. He thinks he’s really doing well if his girlfriend can cook a stew

    Huh? A dream for lazy bums?

    > 5. Whenever he’s with his friends he starts talking tough

    Small talk is a turn off for both sexes.

    > 7. He tries to impress with his manliness by eating large helpings and hot dishes

    It’s a way to brag of being healthy. But it still looks weird.

  • There IS no point in marriage. Why do you need to do a bunch of ceremonial bullshit just to stay together? Just keep the boyfriend/girlfriend status forever. Marriage is expensive and just complicates things. For example, divorce. You don’t even have to do all that legal paperwork shit, you can just leave the bastard/bitch if you feel that the relationship starts failing.

    Traditions in general are fucking stupid, actually.

  • 1. Never desperate, always single.

    3. It is.

    4. Girlfriend = no more fun, why can’t men understand?

    5. *smack* Shut up bitch, did I ask you?

    6. Our date can wait, Project DIVA is in town!

    7. “Fuck you, I’m eating.” – Carls Jr.

    8. Perfect logic.

    10. I’m sorry, you were caricaturing your cat? Do go on.

  • Let’s see..

    ” 1. He was desperate to date you, but once you started dating he no longer cares”

    He expected your personality to be as nice as your body but no matter how beautiful the woman eventually you get tired of the bitching.

    ” 2. He thinks he’s really doing well if his girlfriend can cook a stew”

    Nowadays it’s impressive if a woman will cook at all so I see his point.

    ” 3. He thinks it’s all over once you get married”

    It is, there’s no escape but death or poverty.

    ” 4. Even though he has a girlfriend he still goes on group dates (goukon) for fun”

    Sounds like you’ve confused your friends with benefits status vs a real girlfriend.

    ” 5. Whenever he’s with his friends he starts talking tough”

    Guys are normally rougher with each other than with women. You punch a guy he punches you back, you punch a woman she cries an you go to jail.

    ” 6. He thinks he can see his girlfriend any time he likes so she becomes a low priority”

    She’s still a priority but she expects to be able to overrule anything he wants to do. Tough, you pick a man with a backbone and you’ve got to put up with a man with a backbone.

    ” 7. He tries to impress with his manliness by eating large helpings and hot dishes”

    Some like it hot? Men generally eat more than women. Show me a woman that eats as much as a man and I’ll show you.. well.. a 400lb woman.

    ” 8. He says he doesn’t see the point in marrying so he won’t marry”

    I’m married right now and I don’t see the point. Married women treat sex as a chore and if that is lacking then it’d be cheaper to hire a maid and a prostitute.

    ” 9. He won’t ask people about things he doesn’t know as he doesn’t want to be indebted to them”

    The internet knows all.. who needs to ask people?

    ” 10. He ignores his girlfriend and talks solely about himself”

    Okay, I’ll give you that one. One valid complaint out of ten isn’t bad.

    • If your wife treats sex as a chore you two are either doing it wrong, or you’re with the wrong woman (or both).
      Some people have low sex drives, sometimes because of hormones, sometimes because of excess stress and so on. My sex drive is higher than my husband’s. His ideal is twice or so a week, mine is six-three times a week. Please note that it includes all sorts of sex and not just intercourse. We’ve been married for five years so far, and neither of us have gotten less interested in sex over the years. Us not getting any kids probably helped – as far as I have heard kids is hell on the intimacy of a couple. As we won’t be getting any kids, I can’t even imagine how we would ever consider sex a chore, though I can understand how others do if they are too stressed.

    • > Guys are normally rougher with each other than with women. You punch a guy he punches you back, you punch a woman she cries an you go to jail.

      Nah, the harsh reality is “you punch a guy and he *sues* you back”.

  • A man is as faithful as his options. If she isn’t high on his list, she needs to do something to be there or he’s gone. What purpose does she serve in his eyes? If he is self sufficient, there isn’t anything that she can do to help “fix” him. If he isn’t dying, he’s not in need of consoling. If you aren’t serving a purpose you can cease to exist. It may be that I’ve been too clairvoyant to have a woman near me. I’m still trying to find a woman with whom I have reason to approach.

  • 4. Even though he has a girlfriend he still goes on group dates (goukon) for fun

    What? Who cares?

    5. Whenever he’s with his friends he starts talking tough

    Duh.

    7. He tries to impress with his manliness by eating large helpings and hot dishes

    Maybe he’s hungry? And if not, who cares?

    9. He won’t ask people about things he doesn’t know as he doesn’t want to be indebted to them

    What else is new?

    10. He ignores his girlfriend and talks solely about himself

    Then get a new man or go lesbian.

  • 1. He was desperate to date you, but once you started dating he no longer cares

    I think this is more about a person breathing a sigh of relief ie thank god I finally have a girl friend.

    2. He thinks he’s really doing well if his girlfriend can cook a stew
    [there appear to be some substantial differences in opinion between the sexes as to how easy it is to prepare Japanese cuisine based on stewing, or “nimono”]

    I think this is more about some guys being easy to please. Just cook anything for them.

    3. He thinks it’s all over once you get married

    In some cultures it often is 🙂

    4. Even though he has a girlfriend he still goes on group dates (goukon) for fun

    I think this is a reason to dump the guy actually. Might be a cultural thing, you won’t get that sort of thing here.

    5. Whenever he’s with his friends he starts talking tough

    This is just typical male behaviour, it’s also known as bragging. They call them trophy wives for a reason.

    6. He thinks he can see his girlfriend any time he likes so she becomes a low priority

    Good reason to remind him of his proper priorities actually.

    7. He tries to impress with his manliness by eating large helpings and hot dishes

    Just more typical male behaviour. Don’t try too hard to understand it if you have no testicles.

    8. He says he doesn’t see the point in marrying so he won’t marry

    Lack of commitment, if marriage is important to the girl, either dump him or make him see the point.

    9. He won’t ask people about things he doesn’t know as he doesn’t want to be indebted to them

    Got nothing to do with debt, men have been stupid like this for like forever. Most men won’t ask directions either. A lot of men also think they don’t need the manual.
    It’s permitted to smack em in the head 5 seconds after they admit they are lost or after they screw up the situation from lack of reading the instructions.

    10. He ignores his girlfriend and talks solely about himself

    This is a good reason to dump the self absorbed loser. Being alone with himself is either what he wants, or what he deserves.

    • > I think this is more about a person breathing a sigh of relief ie thank god I finally have a girl friend.

      Nah, loads of guys want to ‘secure’ a relationship with some girls they deem worthwhile. Once they proved themselves they won this seducing hunt, though, they will tend to make little more effort.
      Technically it’s only natural to start feeling an established situation as natural, but not everyone tried so hard as to be called desperate.

      > 4. Even though he has a girlfriend he still goes on group dates (goukon) for fun
      >
      > I think this is a reason to dump the guy actually. Might be a cultural thing, you won’t get that sort of thing here.

      Just having multiple boy/girlfriends is rather accepted in this culture anyway. Given this, why it should be a mystery why anyone continues to attend group dates just because they have at least one boy/girlfriend, I can’t begin to imagine.

      > 5. Whenever he’s with his friends he starts talking tough
      >
      > This is just typical male behaviour, it’s also known as bragging. They call them trophy wives for a reason.

      Nobody, male or female, talk any the same within family, alone with intimates, or among different groups. That the change is to talk tougher rather than pretend you’re so proud of anything you aren’t, is not relevant to anything.
      Though I admit it might be a mystery for one who doesn’t like to think, it still should be obvious that any person, including oneself, does that.

      > 8. He says he doesn’t see the point in marrying so he won’t marry
      >
      > Lack of commitment, if marriage is important to the girl, either dump him or make him see the point.

      Actually, logic is bound to wonder how marriage is any different commitment than dating serious enough to live together and consider marriage? Oh, so the woman wants the man’s money and the couple’s house if anything goes wrong. Got it. Well, I guess there is *some* fairness since they get lower pay and it doesn’t help working when you’re the only one who can breed.

      Not saying I’d mind marrying someone I’d love & trust and who’d want to get married. I just wouldn’t see the point beyond pleasing our family with a ceremony and lower taxes.

        • the truth really is…

          95% of all human beings are self-centered, selfish, cold, inconciderate, and unempathetic bastards/bitches…

          The hunt ends once you get her? The hard part’s over? As a guy myself, I think the hardest part is keeping it going, but that’s if I think it’s worth keeping it going. If it’s not working, tell her. It’s all about perception, and with such a simple and cynical perception that most people tend to have, it’s no wonder most relationships are full of unhappiness. If someone wants to be with someone and then doesn’t care anymore once they’re able to and instead is looking for the next thing, it either means that person needs to grow up and develop some feelings, or the realtionship just isn’t working or didn’t work out.

          If she would want marriage, that’s fine with me. Personally though, I’d like a relationship where things go beyond simple things like sex and marriage. I think marriage for most girls is just another “shiny thing” they want, while for most guys it’s just a tradition, a thing that has to be done, a family thing, a “legality”, ultimately it’s all just a social expectation, a preconcieved notion. Oh yeah, there’s also religion and “under the eyes of god”, but that’s just for the religious folk.

          Also, I thought “their fasination with large breasts” or something like that would be on the list. Maybe just “sex is the only thing important to them”, which is just classic, hehe.

        • What I’m annoyed at is the double standard comedians bring up, how they always have to call women smarter than men and such. It just isn’t true, our priorities are different. We’re like Lion prides, men want multiple women, it’s conquest, the reason we’re not as interested after we have the girl is because subconsciously, the hard part’s done and the challenge is over. It’s not intentional, it just happens and it’s rare that we understand why. Women crave a stable man, men crave many women over time, and can love them all actually. Isn’t it strange that the Mormons were actually on the most accurate track for following how we really feel with polygamy…? Actually other cultures have done it for millenia too, but whatever. Christian brainwashing goes a long way.

        • These votes only bely women’s ignorance. People, frequently women due to their empathy skills, often operate under the assumption that they are empathic mutant telepaths who can read minds, and they make assumptions about others.

          You need only to look at this list, it will either be the above error, or at least some kind of stupid quibble.

          1. He was desperate to date you, but once you started dating he no longer cares

          *She assumes he no longer cares.

          2. He thinks he’s really doing well if his girlfriend can cook a stew
          [there appear to be some substantial differences in opinion between the sexes as to how easy it is to prepare Japanese cuisine based on stewing, or “nimono”]

          *She underestimates the healthiness and value of a good stew.

          3. He thinks it’s all over once you get married

          *She assumes she knows what he is thinking.

          4. Even though he has a girlfriend he still goes on group dates (goukon) for fun

          *She dislikes fun and thinks he should orient his outings around her and not have friends.

          5. Whenever he’s with his friends he starts talking tough

          *She assumes this is a facade, as opposed to, perhaps he avoids expressing his tough interests like MMA out of respect that you may not enjoy hearing about them.

          6. He thinks he can see his girlfriend any time he likes so she becomes a low priority

          *She assumes he thinks he can see her any time. She assumes she is a low priority to him.

          7. He tries to impress with his manliness by eating large helpings and hot dishes

          *She assumes he doesn’t like spicy dishes or big portions. A lot of us do. Perhaps we flaunt it and talk positively about it to encourage women to eat spicy food and proteinous meat which is good for your health.

          8. He says he doesn’t see the point in marrying so he won’t marry

          *How exactly is this mysterious? A lot of women share this opinion. She assumes marriage has a point.

          9. He won’t ask people about things he doesn’t know as he doesn’t want to be indebted to them

          *Perhaps he simply doesn’t want to burden others with his problems? Not everyone feels a sense of debt when they are helped, but they don’t like making others feel put upon or obligated.

          10. He ignores his girlfriend and talks solely about himself

          *She assumes she is being ignored, when in reality, we generally pay some level of attention to you even if we may miss out on some details by zoning out. Talking ‘solely’ about himself is also probably an exaggeration, in all likelihood, she is actually ignoring what he is saying due to finding some of it disinteresting, and misses out on when he tries to draw her into a converstion about an external topic.

        • so, out of curiosity, would a japanese man be more willing to marry a foreigner who didn’t have all those financial expectations? who didn’t care how much he made as long as he can handle his own finances, who LETS HIM handle his own finances, who is also willing to work to pay for her own shit and wants the pleasure of his company moreso than his wallet?

          i dont like the idea of marriage at all. but i can see why its a positive in may cultures, besides japans.

          read a bit more about what marriage in japan brings. most men are expected to fork over all there money, and get a 10-100$ a week allowance, depending on how generous she is. constantly work in hopes of getting better jobs, and by constant i mean massive amounts of unpaid overtime, generaly straining any relationship you may be in.

          generally if your wife is any less than belldandy, marriage in japan is so fucked that its in no way worth what you get. and by all means for the man, his life is mostly over the moment they are hitched. granted they may have a 1 year grace period where girlfriend turns into wife, and that would be an enjoyable time but after…

          and before you talk about not every wife is like that, you really dont know japan as good as you think do you? you realize that being abnormal is something people kill themselves never to be right?

        • 1) the hunt is over, he is in the door, the next time he will be excited is when you spread your legs if you haven’t already

          2) if your girlfriend can cook anything without instructions for it on the box, you are in damn good shape.

          3) thats when women get to stop trying, you have him, so long as you spread your legs enough so he stays with you, your golden. but if the guy stops trying his best you bitch to no end, who wouldnt thing its over than?

          4) that says all kinds of bad things about you, doesnt it? try working on your shit a bit more and make im interested in you, not someone else.

          5) congrats, you found a person who hides who they really are, the most common of all people. now start a fight about it, thats always fun.

          6) lets see here, see his girlfriend who wants to spend his money, do something else? he is like this because you want to spend his shit. try renting a movie, and show up when you know for a damn fact he has nothing to do. if you dont spend his money when ever you see each other maybe he will want to see you more.

          7) maybe he likes hot food? not many people can make good hot food themselves, and if he has to go out with dinner because of you, he may just want to eat what he likes.

          if he only does it because of you.. order a bigger portion than him, and immaculate him and tell him not to do it again.

          8) who the fuck besides women would want to in japans culture… seriously who?

          9) its embarrassing not to know things that you should, and he is making excuses.

          10) narcissistic, possibly, but i would do this if a woman ran her fucking mouth to long about boring shit you don’t care about, just to make her see what its like.

        • I guess thats why majority of girls might go for the athletes more than the non athletic guys.
          4, 5, 7, and 10 sound like the guy is being narcissistic. I think marriage and relationships are worth it but not everyone feels the same way or willing to fulfill their responsibilities.

        • What women generally fail to understand is, men want them for satisfying their needs and would generally like to avoid all the encumbrances connected to it if possible.

          Also, men like to be men and show off. It actually attracts women subconsciously only they don’t understand it. Period.

        • Specially because woman in Japan want to become housewives. So all the pressure of gaining money for the family goes to the husband.
          So for men, marriage = hell, like it’s eloquently said in the first comment by anonymous.
          Now why won’t women understand this simple logic?
