The Idiot’s Guide To Everyday Life

Note to men out there:

 If you're trying to seem loving and caring and want your mate to give you another chance to salvage your relationship, DON'T use the line, "I've invested too much of my time into this family for it not to work." And in the same breath, DON'T say, "I want to give this another chance, but if we do, I want complete control of the finances. Your job in this relationship… blah, blah, blah". I actually don't know what all he said after that because I was so appalled I stopped listening.

Relationships don't have JOBS or ROLES. When you're in a relationship, you share every responsibility EQUALLY. When you stop seeing it that way, it's no more a relationship than a business deal.

The aforementioned phrases are NOT caring and loving and understanding. They're condescending and hurtful. If you're trying to score points for the home team, you're going about it the wrong way. Women do NOT appreciate these phrases. We see them for what they are – controlling and manipulative.

I refuse to be treated that way.

The end.
