From the Twilight Zone that are Men!!!

Don’t get me wrong! I hope this will not turn into a male-bashing rant although if it gets out of hand, I offer no apologies. I like men just fine, or would it be more politically correct to use the word male in the my musings? I have always got along better with my male cousins, and male friends, classmates and later colleagues and despite my occasional feeling that men are generally fickle, arrogant, suffer complexes of varying degrees, I submit that despite my best efforts to switch sides my orientation dictates that I still nurture the hope of finding a male soul mate…

But this last week was weird. For a while, I was crazy enough to think that men are ‘simple’ creatures and hence, easier to understand and get along with than women. A long series of IMs and sms has made me think about rethinking that notion. It also made me think that my male friends are very very strange and by virtue of knowing them, I don’t think my equation makes much sense either. Of course it was not the number of messages but the understanding of the conversations as I saw them that fazed me out. Being ‘one of the guys’ somehow loses its appeal after a time. A few examples of the content that has been sent to me courtesy my very large, and strangely eclectic male harem…

  • Are you sure you don’t wanna come? I’m sure *xxxxxxx* won’t mind you coming along. In fact she is always complaining I’m not very good company on a date. (Name of girl censored for my friend’s protection!)
  • I’m tired yaar. It was an exhausting day. I don’t know if my organs will let me sleep… (I swear to God I have no idea what this means… any takers????)
  • Toh you just found out he’s going out with her too? I knew that…
  • So what if he’s with her….doesn’t mean you aren’t important to him anymore… a sense of healthy competition is all you need to make the relationship more exciting…
  • Yaar, woh tumhari friend is hot… Get her to talk to me na?
    • You’re engaged to be married!
      • Toh?
  • I prefer my girlfriend in my dreams and you in reality.
  • I love them both yaar. The fact that they live in different cities makes it so much easier for me to have the best of both worlds.
    • You’re not being fair to either!
      • Sez who? they don’t know about each other, do they?
  • She’s nice enough to go out with yaar but i can’t marry her… she’s been involved!!
  • She’s crazy about me. She calls me and cries and begs. Ab I can’t hurt her feelings by not talking to her just because I’m married, can I?
  • Why can’t we be friends?So I didn’t marry her and married someone else. We only went out for a couple of years. Relationships end, people change… what’s the big deal about that?????

P.S. All these conversations actually took place. *sigh* As they say, from the mouths of babes… errrr… men! I think I need to look for different company if for no other reason than to preserve some hope for a future….

    no matter how nice a man is, he will always act like typical men at some point in life! they are all the same and can never change!

    and i take offence (as a man) to malaika’s comment “they are all the same and can never change!” why should we have to? do we bug you when you girls loose your minds for no good reason except that you just do?

    and lol @ the convo’s! seriously, you got the raw end of the deal jaded, i mean seriously! not *all* of us are like that :p

    Sorry for the offtopic, but I just wanted to share a blog post with you by an American on a Pakistani blog.

    The address is:

    Yes Its the same old shameless promotion, but with a cause.

    Probably ‘insecure’ is all they [the men] feel. Aren’t we all? I haven’t really tried to ‘date’ anyone yet, even though my age and company allows me to do that quite often now, I just don’t feel it’s ‘right.’ But thats just me. I am sorry for you for the people you know. Slipknot said it best, people = shit! LOL.

    Not all five fingers are alike each other & the same could be said about the ladies:)
    Conclusion..not all men are alike those scums & vice versa!

    The flip side of it is equally funny/sad which-ever adjective you prefer…

    And no, I am not advocating any behaviour

    but as Dr House puts it, “Everybody lies” 🙂
