I know why they dumped you.

This week we have been talking about advice. The topic came up after reading the myriad questions and answers posted on relationship chat groups. They read like soap operas with topics ranging from ‘I think my boyfriend is cheating’ to ‘how much oral sex is enough?’ When we first started reading them (for purely business reasons) it was like striking a vein of dysfunction. We had enough fodder to write about to take us well into our old age. Then the question arose; why are people spilling their lives out onto cyberpaper for total and unqualified strangers to critique.

Momma’s boy or the rebel?

Yesterday, the post included some information that was in poor taste. The guilty party has been threatened, beaten and is in time out. It is never acceptable for CoupleDumb to cross the line in any way and we promise to never go there again. As a couple, we must keep each other honest and hold each other to our highest possibilities. With this in mind you will understand why Lee had to turn Paul into his Mom for saying what he did.

I am not worthy.

There was a guy one night on a dark deserted road that got a flat tire and realized he had no jack. In the distance he saw a light and thought to himself, ‘Maybe it’s a house’. He started walking towards the light and as he got closer he realized he was correct and thought, ‘Maybe they have a jack’. As he approached the yard he saw that there were several cars parked in front and thought, ‘One of these cars must have a jack.’ As he walked up the walkway he thought, ‘What if these guys are a bunch of dicks and won’t let me borrow it?’ As he knocked on the door he became angry at the thought. By the time the door opened he was fuming and said ‘Shove your jack up your ass’.

Are you a Jedi or are you a Sith?

Since this week’s topic is woman, Lee and I thought that I should take the lead on today’s post. The problem is that I like women. I’m one of those odd men that find women fascinating, intriguing and enticing. I like the way they feel. I like the way they think. I like the way they move through the universe, like a potpourri scented battering ram. Women, for me, are pretty cool.

Men: You can’t burn them in a bed and get away with it.

Many women hold the view that men are substandard or that men lack the ability to relate and commit. These beliefs are perpetuated by the very men who are insulted by the labels. The media promotes the cliché and soon we are convinced that all men are dogs. In relationship, men are expected to play new roles. Sitcoms will have you believe that married men tend to be hard up, pussy-whipped and miserable. Why the media campaign against commitment?
