anjou-LOL I would have just opened the thru-hulls while he was gone and let it fill half way. He would have washed it out then! Margo- most guys are happy with someone who will not beat them either physically or mentally on a regular basis. And will live in the boat. Passive-aggression is still aggression.

Women choose men because they think they can change them into what they think they want. They never can, so are often miserable with their choice! LOL!

OK, I'm ready for the slings and arrows!

You can have it all...The bod...the looks..the sweet personality..you just have to look/work hard enough and be persistant..Just like anything else in life.. good salesman ship dosent hurt either.......

Oh ya....and you need to at least smell nice..be nice.. and like clean sheets..and nice bathrooms....and not be such a hard head...go where they want to go, at least sometimes..

I like the passive aggressive passage above.

When we had an engine issue (it would not start) I knew it, I did, that twas something personal...

Indeed, it would not start - because I forgot to push in the stop cable.

So, perhaps, in human relations too, the passive aggressive is sometimes caused by us NOT doing something we should have.

once a week Gord, once a week, whether they need it or not... otherwise the herds of bed buffaloes get to big!

As for what women think men want on BOATS....

well this one knows for a fact that Himself covets blinky light of all sorts and wants to get a bigger boat so he can have an actual nav station with LOTS and LOTS of blinky lights...

I on the other hand really want a roller furler and new sails...

Have you tried telling a woman you'll do the washing up!
I mean when we run out of clean plates!
If we only had two it would get done every day, why, when we've got so many, would I waste warm water washing just the odd one?
Throw the things we don't need overboard, the're slowing us down!
NO, not my tool box!

"Men ultimately respond best to infant instincts." anjou, it sounds like you got it exactly right!
I don't know if Newt can refute or confirm this next bit of wisdom, but a friend of mine with a PHD (Piled Higher & Deeper) in psychology once told me that women can think from both sides of the their brains at once making them continuously bipolar, I might mention that he has been married 6 times; so one might question the validity of what he says.

Im not too sure KestrelBuck would like to comment on the definition of PHD, (piled higher, deeper. Yes, you might have guessed, he does know the real meaning of PHD but im sure he will see the funny side of this.
But I like your description.
Isnt Bipolar only a problem if its unballanced? Shirley, if its both sides at once, its under control?

I will neither confirm or deny evidence acquired by men's inquiry into the female psyche. Women everywhere read these threads. Do you want me sleeping on the couch??
As I said in another thread- I think I'm safer if I just remain out here on my boat. BTW- is the dingy up and the boarding ladder secured? :0

Oh, please, be serious.

Like Tiger Woods can have sex with as many women as he pleases because, why, women are so mature? Ya right.

Women respond to infant instincts just as much as men, only the instincts are different. Power and status are big for most women.

I can still remember the day I got into law school. It was like a switch. All in a sudden my currency went up. Same guy; but different social life. It really baffled me at first.

. . .

Let's put the shoe on the foot, About 75% of all divorces in the U.S. are filed by women. By my math, that's a 3:1 ratio.

So, the unspoken elephant in the room is why do women have such a hard time keeping commitments?

This isn't about commitments, silly... it's about desire...

and tell me I am wrong... but men will stop dead in their tracks to watch a shapely woman walk by... particularly checking out any generous endowments up front. women walk right on by with out ever glancing at the package... the suit and tie, yes... which really supports Anjou's original statement about Men and their instincts ; -)

Himself gets crazy over blinky lights... explain that to me? I don't get the desire for blinky lights!
