It’s Funny How Men & Women Are So Different

My Mom sent the following that I found very funny … but also very realistic when it comes to the way men and women think. Here you go:

A husband & wife’s journal from the same day …

HER JOURNAL: Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn’t flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn’t say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, ‘Nothing.’ I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn’t upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, 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 completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep – I cried. I don’t know what to do. I’m almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

HIS JOURNAL: Boat won’t start, can’t figure out why.

  1. It’s obvious that this couple has no kids. Otherwise, both entries would read “Too tired to write.” (And the guy would have sold the boat years ago to pay for dance lessons and braces.) : )

    Too true!

    Brie and I had a rule when we first started dating: Sweetheart, you are free to ask me anything you want, or ask “what are you thinking about?” and I will answer honestly. Just be prepared for my answer to be something like “a sandwich, my truck, or the intricacies of the infield fly rule.” That has saved us a lot of grief through the years.

    A great story for a good laugh first thing in the morning. It is so absolutely true. Note, though, that for “her” it is all about how she feels, what did she do? etc. For him it is all about his stuff. Oh, where is that happy medium? (In a seance.)

    i’m now laughing because in a small quest to figure out why by boyfriend has seemed a bit distant this past week i just got a text from him that said “blame it on the stock-market.” and here i had a whole list of other possibilities that included me …. though of this post straight away!

    After 12 yrs of marriage I have learned to accept the fact that we are from different planets lol. I have learned that we are different, sometimes men just don’t have anything to say! I have enough to say for both of us so if he doesn’t want to talk, I leave him be.

    Ok Trey, THIS made me laugh hysterically! What is so stinking hard about just saying…boat won’t start? At least put us poor worrying women out of our misery and let us know its something stupid and not us!! 😀
