Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus

I got this joke from my hubby cracked me up:

Sunday night I thought he was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a bar to have a drink. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment.

Conversation wasn't flowing so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk, he agreed but he kept quiet and absent. I asked him what was wrong - he said, "Nothing." I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said it had nothing to do with me and not toworry.

On the way home I told him that I loved him; he simply smiled and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior; I don't know why he didn't say, "I love you, too."

When we got home I felt as if I had lost him, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there and watched TV; he seemed distant and absent.

Finally I decided to go to bed. About 10 minutes later he came to bed and to my surprise he responded to my caress and we made love, but I still felt that he was distracted and his thoughts were somewhere else.

I decided that I could not take it anymore, so I decided to confront him with the situation but he had fallen asleep. I started crying and cried until I too fell asleep. I don't know what to do. I'm almost surethat his thoughts are with someone else.My life is a disaster.

HIS DIARY: Today the Seahwaks lost, but at least I got laid.


  1. ...and I had some guy on the phone to me at work today who wanted to complain about something but refused to speak to anyone female as 'feminism in the work place' was the cause of ALL his problems and in his opinion 'women belonged at home!' Had I not been at work - the customer is always right (except when he's clearly an asshole!) I would have told him in words of one syllable where to shove his complaint.

  2. Too funny JoJo!!

    I have to admit....I get pretty bummed when the Seahawks lose!

  3. I actually think autism, at least in its milder forms, is the natural state of emotional awareness of most men.

  4. I loathe that book.... I say it was written for man by man... grrrrr.....
