Wife and I got in to a pretty bad fight, we went to marriage counseling and the therapist asked her what she thought I was or wasn’t doing to make the marriage work, my wife responded with “well, a real man would…” the therapist shut her down. “If you want to make your marriage work, don’t EVER question his manhood that’s not something that is up to you to decide”.

Yup, all the variations of, "Somebody's going to really love you (JUST NOT MEEEE!"

Nope, not helpful. Do not say that. Don't give arm's length compliments that pretty much exclude yourself. That plenty of fish in the sea stuff is also a no go.

I mean, come on. Men are self aware enough that we do NOT say that kind of shit, ever. We don't go there. We don't dip our hands in the cringe bucket to give you a verbal 'feel better'. We also don't say, "You're such a great... JUSTFRIENDS to me! You'll be a great (friend) to someone else."

It just doesn't work that way. Deep down, don't you know that already?

u/dodexahedron 12d ago

And the "say something interesting" girls usually have literally nothing else in their profile. And a pickup line is a dice roll. And a random fact usually gets ignored, as does a current event. And smalltalk tends to get some nasty responses or an instant unmatch.

This only happened once, but she said that men can't clean a house/apartment as well as women do. As someone who takes pride in my cleaning abilities that annoyed me a lot. It's also a very broad general statement and I hate those.

u/chapinde Male 13d ago

Play 3-2-1. This is what I have always done.

I pick 3 places I'd be happy going. She then has to choose 2 of those that she'd be happy going, then I pick from those 2.

Generally, it tells me what she ISN'T in the mood for. Sometimes, if she wants to go to one of the 3, but definitely not the other two, she'll just pick from the 3.

It makes us both feel like we are choosing, which helps

My number one pet peeve. Literally had this conversation with my wife last night.

My wife had a late program at work, got out at like 7pm. Called me and is like "should I pick up food for dinner?" I'm like go ahead. Then she's like "but where?!". Jokes on you, I already ate dinner so that choice is yours. She's like "uuuuuuuuugggg!".

But yeah, the "you pick" then her shooting down my first 5 choices, really gets annoying. It's like, you are the one that ultimately ends up picking by process of elimination of the choices I present.

Ask what they're not in the mood for, it winnows down the choices drastically and they hardly notice they're being asked what they want.

Doesn't help... I get "I don't know" followed by "not that" repeatedly.

u/CloudSpecialist9562 13d ago

I admit, I will often do this with food because it really doesn't matter to me, and I get very overwhelmed with the endless options. So the other person will choose. However, the rules clearly state that by doing this, I have given up my vote and have no power to veto the dining decision determined by the other party. It's the law, lol. I'm not allowed to bitch, be miserable, be unpleasant, refuse to eat or any other childish behavior. I didn't care to weigh in on the decision making, i pushed the responsibility off onto the other person, and now I must suffer the consequences. Eventually, a person will either learn to have a voice or will find themselves no longer being included, because who wants to deal with that shit day in and day out!?

Any of the narcissistic shit heard from some girls on Tinder: “Entertain me. 6 feet/inches/figures or keep moving.” And my favorite “I’m never on here, follow me on IG” like that isn’t the worst way to advertise that you want more followers and aren’t actually looking for a relationship

Dude this was a go to of one of my exes.

I only fell for it twice, once because I didn't know and once because I couldn't believe the audacity of this woman, but good god, never again.

From experience, sometimes it takes time to figure out why you are upset. My wife and I usually tell each other that we are upset, but need some time to articulate it.

u/Soft-Percentage8888 13d ago

This happens to me (M) a lot. I’ll be upset about it, my fiancé (F) will pick up on it easily and ask me what’s wrong. I’ll just say “nothing” or “I’m okay” to give myself some time to sort/figure it out, then I’ll talk about it later.

Glad I’m not the only one who needs time to sort through thoughts/feelings in this way.

I should probably start telling her something IS wrong, but I need time to sort it out, now that I type that up.

"You are doing the same thing my ex did" during an argument, oh boy my wife told me that once and God as my witness she learned that saying this stuff is a no.

What was your response that helped you?

u/Objective-Industry24 13d ago

I gave her the earful of her life, her ex was a junkie that would beat the shit out of her until things got ugly enough her sisters asked me to basically break into their house and remove the now my wife by force from there, i was definitely a thug and a bit moody sometimes but being compared to a shit like that? That's the one time i actually considered braking up, it was enough for her to cool down and never do that again

u/The_Meatyboosh 13d ago

If you weren't a good guy the sisters wouldn't have asked you for help.

Meh. Lots of people are not just one or the other.

Imagine responding to the ensuing rant that usually follows that with a super serious face, a few blinks and, “….. how is that funny?”

For fucking real man. No I don’t like the chase, you’re the one who likes the chase Jessica. I don’t want 37 different microscopic signals and minimum 2 hours of wait time between texts. That’s how you never get a text back.

My last ex did that, while her "council" consisted of interned "friends" with serious mental issues and inability to control their emotions and assumptions.

Still amazes me that she tried it, when she knew i would never care what they think.

Anything along the lines of "it will be ok" or "you'll be fine" in reference to something stressful. It feels like it's being brushed off.

I understand that it's reassurance, but if I'm venting about having a lot to do or a large, difficult task, then I would prefer something functional like "how about doing X just to get started" or even support that acknowledges the reason I'm venting such as "wow, X is a lot of work, but I'm confident you'll overcome it"

u/Bleach_Baths 13d ago

That’s something I learned in my current relationship. When I’ve had bad things go down or I’m struggling, she doesn’t make it about me. She says “We will figure it out. We’ll be okay. It will all pass.”

Something about the word “we” changes everything.

Anytime I defend myself. If I don't agree with her, and stick to my guns, it's out of character and I'm super defensive and agitated. No sweetheart, I'm just not agreeing with you. It happens.

"Man up" and/or "Be a man"

Weird how that seems to be defined as (1) admitting to some kind of fault or (2) paying for something nobody needs.

When women say this to me, I ask if they want to hear what I think women ought to do.
