    Most of the time a man can't even go out with his male buddies and have drinks or play golf or whatever without getting the third degree from "the wife."  This is why I stay single.
    Sadly, this is accurate for most. I’d divorce my wife if she was this way. Although, I knew she wasn’t which is one of the many reasons that I married her. :) 
    My wife definitely doesn't give me the third degree when I am hanging out with my buddies.  Every year we have a guys trip somewhere (snowboarding, nd football game, cabin in the woods with beer olympics) and she is cool with all that.  But no girls lol.  
    Your digging yourself into a hole regarding this. Haha. 



    Everyone is just waiting for the ball to drop, and you realizing there is insecurity and jealousy in your relationship. Which is okey. 
    Not me, I am waiting for everyone to understand that every relationship works by its own rules (at least the best ones, imo) and stfu about it.  [Especially people who are unhappily married, divorced, or otherwise single.  It works for him.  Bunch a know-it-alls here.]
    Seriously I have the best relationship ever. I have no clue why I am on the stand. This it works for us. I have zero interest in having female relationships or meeting another woman at the bar. 
    Rock your relationship. 
    This 'I know what works best for you (and everyone else) yet I am single' is blahblahblah. 



    I would like to clarify that that is NOT what I'm saying. I'm simply discussing the concept of men and women being friends and debating the justifications behind this that Scruffy's offering up because I think many, many men would come up with the same reasons, and I want to explore them. But FWIW, most middle ages single people were not always single. We are also surrounded by people in relationships. We do actually know what we're talking about a lot of the time when it comes to relationship dynamics in general. But no, not about each individual's relationship, when we don't even know the person, lol. I did think S_C's comment about it was out of line.
    This wasn't out of line?
    Everyone is just waiting for the ball to drop, and you realizing there is insecurity and jealousy in your relationship.

    I would reply with a heaping bowl of 'Suck Blue!' if some armchair psychologist tried to lay that garbage on me.


    Sorry, all are free, of course, to go back to the repetition of the same argument, I am leaving now to hit a "pizza" bar up north and meet McGruff. 


    As a great poster once shared:
    look into the mirrow, thats the stupid child over there.
    Haults Maul!

    Armchair psychologists crack me up but at no point did I get angry.  Like I said, to each their own. I can't for the life of me understand married couples having separate savings and checking accounts.  Like you pay the mortgage and I pay for water bill this month.  It makes zero sense to me, but it works for that couple.  Not having friends of the opposite sex is what works for my wife and I and a lot of other people that I know.  I'm in a near perfect relationship.  My wife and I somehow work together (literally across the hall), juggle five kids here there and everywhere and somehow make time for each other pretty much every day.  I learned a hell of a lot from my first marriage.

    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    Some people like to be ridden as if they are were horses. I know it's true because I saw it on TV once.

    Every relationship is different. Who are we to judge?

    While I might find it odd that a number of gentlemen here don't hang out with women who aren't their significant others for whatever their reasons may be, I don't feel the need to condemn them or put them in a box constructed out of pseudo-psychology and glued shut with faux feminism for it. I do feel that they are missing out, but they don't. And that's fine.

    The Dude abides.
    You are just miserable because you have shitty pizza all around you. 
    Dick.
    Let’s go dodgers!
    That's it! Where's this pizza date with @F Me In The Brain going on? I'm dropping by with one of my NYC lady friends to kick you squarely in the ass and steal a slice. 
    You wouldn't know a good slice if hit you squarely in the nads.  Have you been ordering domino's or pizza hut lately


    Little Steve’s.

    No one is criticizing what works for you and your wife or anyone else. 

    A couple having separate savings still have it for a reason. Not just because of "it just is that way". On the question; so why do you not have a joint saving? there is an answer telling why that is.

    It doesn't affect how good they juggle X kids or how they have the time to hate You Are. But there is a reason for why.

    Just like there is a reason for me waiting till tomorrow to ask Agnes.

    My wife and I each have personal checking accounts, a joint checking account, and multiple joint savings accounts.

    Before we had kids she paid for nothing household related and our mutual checking account only existed for checks written to us both.

    She could do whatever she wanted with her income, as could I.  (After paying our bills )


    Everyone is different!

    look into the mirrow, thats the stupid child over there.
    Haults Maul!

    Armchair psychologists crack me up but at no point did I get angry.  Like I said, to each their own. I can't for the life of me understand married couples having separate savings and checking accounts.  Like you pay the mortgage and I pay for water bill this month.  It makes zero sense to me, but it works for that couple.  Not having friends of the opposite sex is what works for my wife and I and a lot of other people that I know.  I'm in a near perfect relationship.  My wife and I somehow work together (literally across the hall), juggle five kids here there and everywhere and somehow make time for each other pretty much every day.  I learned a hell of a lot from my first marriage.

    No one is criticizing what works for you and your wife or anyone else. 

    A couple having separate savings still have it for a reason. Not just because of "it just is that way". On the question; so why do you not have a joint saving? there is an answer telling why that is.

    It doesn't affect how good they juggle X kids or how they have the time to hate You Are. But there is a reason for why.

    Just like there is a reason for me waiting till tomorrow to ask Agnes.
    I give up.  I'm waving the white flag.  I can't do this anymore.  My offer still stands, my passport is ready to be stamped by Swedish customs.  I will teach the ways of sweeping Agnes off her (it is her right?) feet.  Definitely clean up a little.  Do some manscaping and for the love of god order an actual burger and not a tofu burger.  Don't order a chardonnay or anything with a little umbrella in it.  Go simple, vodka/club with lime.  I pray you aren't a light weight.  Do not propose marriage to her after the first date.  Do not talk politics or religion.

    Most of the time a man can't even go out with his male buddies and have drinks or play golf or whatever without getting the third degree from "the wife."  This is why I stay single.
    Sadly, this is accurate for most. I’d divorce my wife if she was this way. Although, I knew she wasn’t which is one of the many reasons that I married her. :) 
    My wife definitely doesn't give me the third degree when I am hanging out with my buddies.  Every year we have a guys trip somewhere (snowboarding, nd football game, cabin in the woods with beer olympics) and she is cool with all that.  But no girls lol.  
    Your digging yourself into a hole regarding this. Haha. 



    Everyone is just waiting for the ball to drop, and you realizing there is insecurity and jealousy in your relationship. Which is okey. 
    Not me, I am waiting for everyone to understand that every relationship works by its own rules (at least the best ones, imo) and stfu about it.  [Especially people who are unhappily married, divorced, or otherwise single.  It works for him.  Bunch a know-it-alls here.]
    Seriously I have the best relationship ever. I have no clue why I am on the stand. This it works for us. I have zero interest in having female relationships or meeting another woman at the bar. 
    Rock your relationship. 
    This 'I know what works best for you (and everyone else) yet I am single' is blahblahblah. 



    I would like to clarify that that is NOT what I'm saying. I'm simply discussing the concept of men and women being friends and debating the justifications behind this that Scruffy's offering up because I think many, many men would come up with the same reasons, and I want to explore them. But FWIW, most middle ages single people were not always single. We are also surrounded by people in relationships. We do actually know what we're talking about a lot of the time when it comes to relationship dynamics in general. But no, not about each individual's relationship, when we don't even know the person, lol. I did think S_C's comment about it was out of line.
    This wasn't out of line?

    Great movie. Not a "B" movie though. Was the highest priced spec script at the time. Shane Black was paid like 1.5-2 million dollar for the script and it had a huge budget.

    I would like to clarify that that is NOT what I'm saying. I'm simply discussing the concept of men and women being friends and debating the justifications behind this that Scruffy's offering up because I think many, many men would come up with the same reasons, and I want to explore them. But FWIW, most middle ages single people were not always single. We are also surrounded by people in relationships. We do actually know what we're talking about a lot of the time when it comes to relationship dynamics in general. But no, not about each individual's relationship, when we don't even know the person, lol. I did think S_C's comment about it was out of line.
    This wasn't out of line?
    Everyone is just waiting for the ball to drop, and you realizing there is insecurity and jealousy in your relationship.

    I would reply with a heaping bowl of 'Suck Blue!' if some armchair psychologist tried to lay that garbage on me.


    Sorry, all are free, of course, to go back to the repetition of the same argument, I am leaving now to hit a "pizza" bar up north and meet McGruff.

    Yes, that was totally out of line, like I said.

    Most of the time a man can't even go out with his male buddies and have drinks or play golf or whatever without getting the third degree from "the wife."  This is why I stay single.
    Sadly, this is accurate for most. I’d divorce my wife if she was this way. Although, I knew she wasn’t which is one of the many reasons that I married her. :) 
    My wife definitely doesn't give me the third degree when I am hanging out with my buddies.  Every year we have a guys trip somewhere (snowboarding, nd football game, cabin in the woods with beer olympics) and she is cool with all that.  But no girls lol.  
    Your digging yourself into a hole regarding this. Haha. 



    Everyone is just waiting for the ball to drop, and you realizing there is insecurity and jealousy in your relationship. Which is okey. 
    Not me, I am waiting for everyone to understand that every relationship works by its own rules (at least the best ones, imo) and stfu about it.  [Especially people who are unhappily married, divorced, or otherwise single.  It works for him.  Bunch a know-it-alls here.]
    Seriously I have the best relationship ever. I have no clue why I am on the stand. This it works for us. I have zero interest in having female relationships or meeting another woman at the bar.

    Armchair psychologists crack me up but at no point did I get angry.  Like I said, to each their own. I can't for the life of me understand married couples having separate savings and checking accounts.  Like you pay the mortgage and I pay for water bill this month.  It makes zero sense to me, but it works for that couple.  Not having friends of the opposite sex is what works for my wife and I and a lot of other people that I know.  I'm in a near perfect relationship.  My wife and I somehow work together (literally across the hall), juggle five kids here there and everywhere and somehow make time for each other pretty much every day.  I learned a hell of a lot from my first marriage.

    No one is criticizing what works for you and your wife or anyone else. 

    A couple having separate savings still have it for a reason. Not just because of "it just is that way". On the question; so why do you not have a joint saving? there is an answer telling why that is.

    It doesn't affect how good they juggle X kids or how they have the time to hate You Are. But there is a reason for why.

    Just like there is a reason for me waiting till tomorrow to ask Agnes.
    I'd just like to point out that I've known couples who do separate their finances like that, including my own parents, and it didn't work for a single one of those couples, lol. Just because people are doing something it doesn't mean it works for them. ;) That doesn't mean there aren't couples out there who it does work for... But I've never met any of them!

    I give up.  I'm waving the white flag.  I can't do this anymore.  My offer still stands, my passport is ready to be stamped by Swedish customs.  I will teach the ways of sweeping Agnes off her (it is her right?) feet.  Definitely clean up a little.  Do some manscaping and for the love of god order an actual burger and not a tofu burger.  Don't order a chardonnay or anything with a little umbrella in it.  Go simple, vodka/club with lime.  I pray you aren't a light weight.  Do not propose marriage to her after the first date.  Do not talk politics or religion.  
    Always drink:


    2.7 average rating based on 23,194 reviews on untappd.  Sounds like you need a better beer.  
    Where does my Coors Light rank on your finger scale, Mike?
    2.36 average rating based on 326,051 reviews on untappd.  Sounds like you also need a better beer.
    While I appreciate you sharing what a bunch of pretentious beer drinking moles gave as feedback on my shitty watered down beer, it was my weak attempt at a quote reference to one of the greatest B-Buddy movies of all time, The Last Boy Scout

    Great movie. Not a "B" movie though. Was the highest priced spec script at the time. Shane Black was paid like 1.5-2 million dollar for the script and it had a huge budget.

    Could be true, I didn't know any of that.  Just went on the idea that it never tried to be anything it wasn't and a lot of people thought it was shit. 
    Saw it 5-10 times in the theater when it came out and countless times since.
    Junior year in high school and we used to bring in a sixer of beer each to watch. 
    Good times.

    TrY reading the script, it's written to be reallY entertaining to the reader.
