Attack of the Brides
Attack of the Brides
it’s called “askmen”..I’ve gone and looked at the boards there a few times..suprise surprise, there are A LOT OF POSTS about sex, and how women are tricky little bitches HAHA!
There would definitely be some subforums for cars and videogames!
I think it would look bankrupt that or there would be very few straight men.
Video game / car forum interspersed with:
“uuuugh my lady won’t leave me alone about getting engaged.”
“Oh man been there. Just made me wanna play Call of Duty more. Didn’t help, made her crazier. Just tell her you’re on it and she’ll leave you be.”
“Tried that, she didn’t believe me. You see the new Dodge Dart? I tell her if she gets me a Dart, she gets a rock.”
“And you lived? You got balls, man.”
Or something to that affect. LOL
There is actually a wort of “weddingbee-ish” site for men…it is called theplunge.com…pretty interesting to go on there and see what the guys have to say 🙂
haha! It would have a very very long discussion about impatient girlfriends!
DH’s response to this? “It would look like a bar.”
Adding to that, he said, a post would be:
“My fiancee can’t figure out what color to use with navy. They all look the same to me.”
And then all the responses would be: “yeah.”
haha, Im reading stuff on “the plunge” and its hilarious:
“Is She The One?
To delay the ultimatum with tact and savvy, you must employ the DOOM technique: make the engagement contingent on some Deliberately Obscure Objective and/or Money.
Here’s how DOOM works. It keeps you from saying something like, “Um…well…it’s just that…I guess…I don’t think I’m ready.” That’s weak. That guarantees a long, tedious, tear-soaked argument of don’t you love me?! and what’s wrong with us?!
DOOM avoids this. Instead of shrugging your shoulders and mumbling that you’re “not ready” to get married, you confidently say that before you get engaged, you must first complete either a Deliberately Obscure Objective…or hit some goal that involves Money.
The best Deliberately Obscure Objectives are pegged to your job. Let’s say you’re a database analyst. Explain that before you’re comfortable getting engaged, it’s important that you first “get your database career established.” (God knows what that means.) The trick is keeping it deliberately obscure, refusing to cite a specific milestone. Otherwise, when you get promoted to Database Manager you’ve suddenly run out of rope.
As for the Money? Easy. You can blame credit card debt, student loans, buying a house, selling a business…the list is endless. Tell her that you love her (assuming you do) and that you envision a future with her, but first thing’s first-you need financial security for both of your sakes.
The strategy of DOOM will let you both: 1) take more time to figure out if she’s “the one” (click here to find out) and 2) recapture spontaneity. With DOOM you’re working on your timeline, not hers. And even if you definitely do want to get engaged, you still benefit from DOOM. Imagine if she says, “I need a ring by New Year’s Eve, or else I’m leaving you.” Even if you know you want to marry her, it’s best to still use DOOM to push off the ultimatum… then propose when she’s not expecting it.
